good, clean, toilet worked but smelled a little unfresh most of the time, there's not much clearance between the sink and tap, the soap is weird and the tp is awful (i do bring some from home) Read entire member review >>
My cabin attendant Presahda was excellent. My room was done by the time I got back from breakfast. He was friendly and personable, and extremely efficient and professional.
As for the cabin itself, it was an average cabin near an elevator on deck 2. I loved the location of our cabin. But I absolutely hated the shower. I flooded the floor almost every day because the water pressure and my body pushed the shower curtain out and allowed the water to escape. I hope when Grandeur goes into dry dock in the spring they replace the shower curtains with glass doors. Read entire member review >>
Clean. Enough space for your staff. A lot of little draws)) I like that there were a lot of mirrors and new flat screen TV, big enough. We brought external hard drive with some movies and shows and watched everything on their TV instead of our small laptop. That was unexpectable great surprise. Read entire member review >>
The king twin beds was hard and painful, we couldn't keep from falling in the crack between the two. Our cabin host was excellent and made the stay enjoyable and he was a pleasure. Read entire member review >>
Small but efficient sized room. Our room steward did a great job keeping our room clean. Never stayed so low on a ship, but really enjoyed the location. Was easy on and off when docking. Ordered room service most mornings so I could have my morning coffee. TV's could use better channel choices for news. Not a CNN fan. Read entire member review >>
Ocean view room so could at least see when it was daylight and when not when in cabin...honestly, all the cabins on most of the ships are rather similar in all features so this is nowhere near a deal breaker in choosing a liner or ship. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was nice.
Problem was it was only cleaner for the first two nights we were on the ship. We had to clean it ourself after that.
Floors were not vacumned after the 2nd day. Read entire member review >>
Two Port holes. The foremost room starboard. The bed is low. The bed is oriented side to side, not front to back of the ship. This may cause seasickness from the motion of the ocean. Lots of drawers and cubby holes to put your stuff. We ended up putting two of our suitcases in the closet, and two did fit under the bed. Mattress could be better. The hand towels and washcloths were threadbare, and the towels were one step up. Mr. Steven was a most excellent Steward, and all the stewards on that floor were very friendly.

The Mattress in this room is sagging badly in the middle. My husband complained about it all the time. The rest of the room was OK, but if you have a lot of luggage there is not much space for storage if you plan to hang clothes. We liked the room configuration, but will not stay in this one again. There was also a sewer order in the bathroom most of the time. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was a decent size although the shower was smaller than what I have seen on other ships. Cabin steward was great, but the sink in my particular cabin had a very slow faucet of which the maintenance staff were clueless on fixing, there was an extremely cloaked aerator and overly restricted water blocking piece. The cabin had a good oceanview. The bed was uncomfortable, saggy, and very low to the floor. Read entire member review >>
Our room layout was typical ship shape and small. Because the weather was chilly we didn't miss the balcony. Our steward worked magic - any time we left our cabin we came back to a fresh clean bathroom and neat bed. I don't know how he did that, but we certainly appreciated it. I really didn't want a low floor but it was cozy and our forward cabin was away from the fray and was quiet. Read entire member review >>
Very clean - room steward is very attentive.
Typical cabin - small bathroom with a real small shower. Not sure how any "big" people can get into one of those bathrooms let alone into a shower.
It was a lower level - which can be noisy if the weather is rough - waves slam against the hull. Plus when coming into a port, you hear all the noise of preparations to let passengers dis-emabark. Read entire member review >>
We got an ocean view room, on Deck2 on the back. Room was big enough for two people, no more than that. It had a security box, a flat screen TV, a sofa, dresser and the bathroom was bigger than what I expected. Shampoo and soap is provided, but nothing else. People recommend rooms in lower decks to avoid seasickness. You do feel the rocking of the boat from time to time, so be ready. My girlfriend has really bad motion sickness, even on a bus...she wore a patch for preventing getting sick and it worked beautifully. In addition, we were close to the engines, and some reviews say that you may get extra vibration in the room; however, we did not feel it at all. The boat vibrates from time to time, which you would feel regardless where you are. Read entire member review >>
We separated the beds in our staterooms. My husband's bed sagged so badly on one side where people had been sitting that he had to turn the mattress so he would roll into the wall instead of onto the floor. Also, as time went on, we got more and more of a sewage smell in the hall and coming out of our bathroom area(we were on the lowest passenger deck). Read entire member review >>
Plenty of drawer space but frugal closet and marginal space under bed for luggage (prepare to push it under if possible at all). Unpleasant odor but primarily localized on Deck 2 across from Room 2064 Read entire member review >>
