February 2016 - Grandeur of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern
This is a cruise with 5 days at sea. I like sea days because it gives you a chance to relax and focus on things on the ship without rushing about to see the destinations. We did have some rough seas, but our captain was able to avoid a major storm and they gave us updates when necessary.
Activities were limited. I think too many seminars to sell you things. I liked the trivia games and the entertainment. Was hoping for more group dance classes. Games and classes on this cruise focused more on an older crowd.
Shows were excellent. I can't say enough good things about their entertainment. They also showed movies on board. The movies were also on the pool deck screen but when it's too cold to be outside nobody watches them.
Gym is small, that's because it isn't a big ship. But with an older crowd there was frequently room. Fitness staff were very good, although activities were limited. Rock climbing wall was a nice addition, except it was mostly closed when windy or too cold.
Crew and staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. A++ to them. I saw constant work and cleaning on board the ship. Hard working crew.
Food was very good. Lots of choices. Three specialty restaurants and they were all excellent. Food in the dining room as well as dining in the windjammer were very good, IMHO.
