4.0 Editor's Rating
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 ...

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

My wife and I went on a 10 night cruise on this ship from Baltimore to the eastern Caribbean, March 30 – April 9, 2016. We booked a junior suite with a balcony because we knew we would be at sea a total of 5 days and didn’t ... 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

We were first time cruisers (just my husband and I, in our 50's) and chose the Grandeur of the Seas as a smaller ship so as not to be too overwhelmed and allow us the opportunity to really explore our ship, get to know the cruising ... 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

We just completed our third cruise on Grandeur of the Seas on March 20th. It was absolutely great as have been the other two. When we got to our suite the luggage was already in the room so we began unpacking. Then we got a knock on ... 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

Before we left for our cruise, I looked at reviews on this site about The Grandeur of the Seas and RCI, in general. I worried a bit because many reviews were negative stating that the ship was old, a bit run down, food was not great, etc. ... Read more

My hubby and I just returned from an eight day from Baltimore aboard the RCCL Grandeur of the Seas. Embarkation was very smooth because we are Crown & Anchor society members. We were on the ship by 11 am! The Windjammer Cafe left a ... Read more

A great cruise, despite the fickle weather that put a damper on some of the would-be highlights of the cruise. The space in my inside stateroom was great - granted I was the only one in the cabin, but I needed less than half of the storage ... Read more

The port in Baltimore had organized embarkation and debarkation. I was not prepared for the VERY long uphill walk to the ship. Using a cane, it was difficult. The up-selling began before the long walk to the ship and continued throughout ... Read more
