Took this cruise to get away from the cold . Went with 3 other couples from town. Like Baltimore port for closeness to home. No need to deal with airlines.. The Grandeur is familiar with friendly crew. Always found chairs and loungers ... Read more

We did this cruise as a back to back with the preceding Caribbean 11 night, for a total of 20 nights. The price was good and there were some ports we had not been to so we chose to try going out of Baltimore in the winter. I should ... Read more

This cruise left Baltimore, which worked for us because we could park at the port. Boarding was no more difficult than it has been for any cruise we've taken. (Compared with some of our fellow cruisers, we are pretty new at this!) ... Read more

Our cruise started out in Baltimore on a Saturday and it was an hour or two late leaving port due to an engine problem. On Sunday at sea everyone received message there would be no water from 1 a.m. for several hours and this would ... Read more

We chose to sail with Royal Caribbean because it was winter, out of Baltimore and a good price. Boarding was smooth. Our cabin was adequate but the layout put the bed in front of the window and restricted our ability to look outside. The ... Read more

I went with a friend who usually goes every year. It was my first time on this ship - and I loved it. The crew was about the friendliest I've ever seen, always helpful always courteous. Food was quite good and varied. We had the BEST ... Read more

We have departed from Baltimore on other occasions and love the ease of their port. Departing from ports such as NY are nowhere near as nice and easy and friendly as the Baltimore Port. We had an 11 night cruise that included ... Read more

Second time sailing out of Baltimore and the cruise port in Baltimore did not disappoint. They are an efficient operation. Other cruise ports could learn from their procedures. Wished the same could be said about the remainder of the ... Read more

I sailed Grandeur in late August, so this was my second Grandeur experience. The first sailing, to Bermuda, was a terrific break. This cruise was even better. I had an inside cabin, which was clean and functional. The stateroom attendant ... Read more

The purpose of this cruise was to be a inexpensive getaway from our Canadian winter. Having read many negative reviews about the ship I did have some concerns. We drove to Baltimore and stayed overnight at Best Western O'Donnell St ... Read more

We chose this cruise to go to an area we hadn't visited before and were disappointed at how the towns were all about selling to cruise ship visitors. I was expecting to be able to visit some historic sites, but there was nothing to see ... Read more

It was our first time on the Grandeur of the Seas and it has a lot to offer. We left Baltimore and cruised for 3 days before encountering the first of the 4 US Virgin Islands. The food in the Great Gatsby dining room was exceptional and ... Read more

Choose cruise to be with family! Unfortunately, we all made a terrible choice of ship and cruise line. 12 days of toilets flushing "sometimes", terrible food and nothing to do while at sea was worst experience. We have ... Read more

This was our 4th cruise with RCI and, after the last disastrous trip with them in June 2016, we would have cancelled this one had we not already paid the non-refundable deposit. So the trip went ahead. First the good points: Having ... Read more

good value for the dollar we got two holidays in one trip. The dining was our only issue, the waiter was not very friendly or sociable just stuck to his job and staff was under sized as our waiter's helper had 4 tables to handle when ... Read more

My adult niece and I both live in Maryland so sailing from Baltimore eliminated a long drive or a flight. We drove in the morning of cruise, arriving around 11:30am. Dropping of luggage, parking car and entering cruise terminal took all of ... Read more

This is only my 4th cruise. And i had a great time solo parenting with 3 kids. But nothing was particularly OMG breathtaking, either. The ship is older, but still neat as a pin. The staff were mostly all friendly, all the time, but ... Read more

I was on the Granduer for Christmas just last year. The only difference is that last year RCCL offered 2 week long cruises over the holidays, when this year it was 1 12-day cruise over both Christmas and New Years. Compared to last ... Read more

Even though we were on the roll call, we never received info about the Cruise Critic mix and mingle. Just sayin'. We chose this cruise because it sails out of Baltimore, I got a flash sale price and we live in DC. What's not to like? ... Read more
