We chose this cruise for some time with our grandchildren and children. The grandkids spent time at the pool, rock climbing wall and playing shuffleboard. We dined at Chops specialty restaurant and the buffet as well as the dining room. We ... Read more

The best way I can summarize this is by comparing the cruise lines to fast food joints. If Carnival is the McDonald's of the seas, then RC's Grandeur of the Seas is Wendy's. By a hair. Not even a Panera. A Wendy's. The good: The ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Royal Caribbean, and have only sailed with one other cruise line in the past. I have heard wonderful things about this cruise line and choose this particular cruise because of it's proximity to home and the ... Read more

Grandeur has one of the nicest crews that we've found in over 30 cruises. They make every minute on the ship so much nicer. You encounter smiles everywhere and they are all extremely polite and helpful. Grandeur is an older and ... Read more

It was our first cruise out of Baltimore, second cruise overall (both with Royal). We were very impressed with getting on and off ship -- very efficient and orderly. It was only an hour drive for us, so I'm definitely looking to do another ... Read more

We chose this cruise as a change to typical beach resort vacations, since our daughters are 10 and 13. We figured they would enjoy visiting new places where we would not ordinarily go. Photos- very important. I didn't purchase the ... Read more

This was a family cruise to celebrate my parents' 60th wedding anniversary, so they selected the ship and the destination. It was....okay. This was the 6th cruise we've done in the last several years, and the second on RCCL. I won't go out ... Read more

First time on Royal Caribbean and sailed on Grandeur of the Seas. Room is small, but functional. Bathroom is tiny but well organized. Tip in the shower: to keep the shower curtain from sticking to you, hose it down from top to bottom. ... Read more

Honestly, I book this to level up before a family cruise in December on the Navigator. I had never been to Bermuda or Bahamas and got a great deal on both the cruise and airfare. I had low expectations of the ship and the ports. Boy oh ... Read more

Wife and I departed on 9 night cruise (our longest yet) from Baltimore, MD. The transfer from the Airport to the Cruise Terminal was easy and cost us just $35 total including tip to the driver. We did not prearrange this at all, just ... Read more

While we've cruised on other lines, we decided it was time to try Royal Caribbean. And what better test than one of the older and least featured ships in the line, the Grandeur — one due for a refit in 2017. If we enjoyed ourselves ... Read more
