Room selection, buyer beware.: Grandeur of the Seas Cruise Review by plumbertom
Overall Member Rating
Room selection, buyer beware.
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
I put up with the noise for a few nights because I was trying to be a good sport. I finally went to the guest services desk and they assured me that there were no more rooms at my level of room. I was offered the opportunity to move to an inside room which I declined because of claustrophobia issues with some of my family More members. The desk clerk said he would speak to the kitchen manager and ask them to keep the noise down. Two nights later I couldn't take it anymore, I accepted and inside cabin so I could sleep. We found it hard to enjoy anything the ship offered as entertainment or food. The ports of call all ran together as a never ending nightmare of sleep deprivation.
Don't worry though. Royal Caribbean sent some chocolate covered strawberries to our room and offered us 20% off another cruise(within one year), unfortunately on Royal Caribbean. No thank you. A customer service representative told me on the phone that you should research your room choice before you accept the room. I choose not to choose Royal Caribbean in the future. Less
Cabin review: F3652 Large Ocean View Stateroom
Rooms 3644 and 3652 are under the kitchen regardless of what the deck plan says. The kitchen operates around 20 hours a day. The deck plan shows the rooms under the chefs table. We heard banging, clanking and thumps that I don't think occur under the chefs table.Read All Large Ocean View Stateroom (F) Reviews >>
