The 1,950-passenger Grandeur of the Seas, launched in early 1996, is one of Royal Caribbean's oldest (and smallest) vessels, but you'd never know it from the ship's sleek public spaces: a grand Art ...

I was really impressed as the Grandeur is "visibly" an old ship but it packs a punch with the type of service that was being offered. As this was my 3rd cruise on RCCL, I was expecting a great experience and I was not ... Read more

Booked this one a month before because I had the week off for vacation, liked the idea of driving 4 hours to get on a ship and exclude the hassle and cost of flying especially with that recent 3 hour TSA wait nonsense. I sailed RC for the ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was the only one that would fit with the dates that I could get away from work, and the port was close enough to home that we could use award points for our flight. We should have spent more money and taken ... Read more

My husband booked this cruise as a birthday gift to me, especially because I love lobsters and have always wanted to visit Maine. This was the best cruise ever. The crew was exceptionally friendly. We enjoyed most of the entertainment. Our ... Read more

The port of Baltimore is the best port to cruise from. Embarkation went quick and smooth. Our room wasn't ready until 1PM. so we went to the Windjammer for lunch and as usual it was very crowded. The food was ok. When we could go to our ... Read more

This was my first cruise so I have nothing to compare it with. Overall, it was okay. Not spectacular, not awful. The water was thankfully smooth, the weather cool. We had a cabin on deck 2 in the center and it was very quiet and we barely ... Read more

1) The good parts of this cruise were the ports and the food! We loved all the stops (Boston, Portland, Bar Harbor, St. John, and Halifax). We also loved the food. We never ate in a specialty dining room because the food in the main ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was close to home, not getting on a plane is the way to go if possible. We also chose it because it was our anniversary. Overall this was disappointing. The Grandeur is probably 20 years old, and ... Read more

This was my 2nd experience on Grandeur of the Seas. My first cruise in 2013 was WONDERFUL! Excellent customer service on every level. From stateroom attendant (loved Ida Ashley) to each porter. To say this cruise was different would be an ... Read more

First time cruise with Mrs. Cruiser and another couple. No kids on this trip. We had a blast, so much so that both couples booked two more Royal Caribbean cruises, one for Dec 2016 and another for May 2017. Getting on board in ... Read more

This was our first cruise. We chose this cruise because of the value and the convenience of cruising out of a port close to home. The Granduer of the Seas is a smaller, older ship, so keep that in mind when choosing it. It doesn't ... Read more

My first cruise - sort of a trial run to see if this sort of vacation is for me. Turns out, I think I'm ready to book another. But probably not on this boat. I booked the five-night cruise to Bermuda out of Baltimore because it was ... Read more

I will start with a little back-round, we are Diamond cruisers with over 17 cruises behind us. We prefer drive up ports due to luggage and usually purchasing large amounts of alcohol to bring back with us. We are active people and like to ... Read more

I choose this cruise to celebrate my birthday, and the convenience of leaving from close to home. This is one of the smaller ships we have been on, it was very nice, but showing its aging in different areas. One of them were the pool and ... Read more

This was my 33rd cruise -- a 25th anniversary gift from my mother. She chose this cruise because it was a great bargain, and we prefer a smaller ship without the bells and whistles. We live on Long Island, so Baltimore is only 3 hours ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of the destination and recommendation from someone who had sailed with Royal Caribbean. We were very disappointed. It wasn't the worst cruise we have ever been on, but it certainly didn't rank near the top. ... Read more

We are regulars on Grandeur because of high prices in Bayonne. Food in the dining room is uninspiring and came out just warm every night. Service was very good. The Windjammer is abysmal. We call it "Golden Corral of the Seas" ... Read more

This was the first cruise for my 17 year old daughter and myself. I would book it again in a heartbeat. In the past I would have never considered going on a ship with 2,000 strangers for 8 days. Well, never say never! We had a fantastic ... Read more

I have cruised with Oceana and Carnival in the past, and although I did not expect an "Oceana experience" from RCI, I did anticipate an experience similar to (or better than) Carnival. Unfortunately, RCI underwhelmed at nearly ... Read more
