Ship Facts: Grandeur of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Grandeur of the Seas Deck Plans
Wonderful 9 days on GOTS
Very happy with the refurbished Grandeur of the Seas. All the areas are in great shape, the colors and the decorations pleasant. This never felt like a small ship. We only smelled an odor once and that was when we were next to another ship, so am blaming the smell on them. The crew was very pleasant and efficient, always cheerful and helpful. Jimmy the cruise director was fun and engaging without being over the top.

Food was very good. We enjoyed the Windjammer, the MDR still was serving the old menu and we both prefer the new menu but preparation and presentation were still delightful. We went to Chops for our anniversary and felt that the $30 per person was well worth it.

We always enjoy the shows, there was always space on the pool deck (not so by the atrium pool). We are not group activity people but all the activities seem to be well attended and people seemed to enjoy participating. We loved the itinerary and wished we could do this same cruise again. It is hard to understand how the GOTS can be year round in Baltimore, as it was very chilly for the last 24 hours of the cruise.

First time interior cabin was okay but very small for two people, cannot imagine more than that in the tiny space. Minor issues were noticed and fixed quickly without our having to report them. Beds were very comfortable. I did have to jump over the end of the bed each time as bed was against the dresser. I took a nightlight which helped with the profound darkness of an inner cabin.

Embarkation in San Juan and disembarkation in Baltimore were smooth and easy. Labadee was our favorite of the 6 ports and would go there again in a heatbeat. It would be nice if we could overnight there and have two days!
