We have sailed on Grandeur two other times. This time I decided to get a Jr suite for our anniversary. That was a mistake. On this ship it was small and the balcony was very small and no lounge chairs, they wouldn't fit anyway. I didn't ... Read more

You won't be disappointed with this cruise nor the ship. As she may be a little older and not as grand as some of the new ones she certainly holds her own. The crew is amazing and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The ship was ... Read more
