Grandeur of the Seas Cruise Review by cruisetechnologist: Seven ports in nine days
Overall Member Rating
Seven ports in nine days
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
My husband and I flew out of Baltimore to San Juan, Puerto Rico. We found an excellent small hotel, the Chateau Cervantes, in the heart of Old San Juan. It was immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. Our room had tall French doors which opened onto a small balcony overlooking the colorful streets. We allowed an extra day to do a self guided walking tour of this old, gorgeous history rich town. Forts, flowers, blue cobblestone streets, oceanside walkways, and numerous cafes and restaurants thrilled us both over the next 24 hours. The next day our hotel attendants hailed a taxi which delivered us to the Pan American pier in about ten minutes.
Embarkation was a breeze, and in less than one hour we were onboard the Grandeur of the Seas. Our two Royal Caribbean cruises have been perfect beyond description. The cabins are nice, the food is great, the crew is amazing, and the shore excursions are wonderful.
We would like to especially mention the crew members who More staff the Park Cafe. We spent many wonderful hours in this adult retreat topside, glass enclosed area.
The breakfasts,lunches, snacks, and dinners were just delicious. Also the staff members went out of their way to interact in a hospitable and friendly manner. Victor was so kind to my husband , and we made a Tunisian friend who taught us a little about card games in his home country. These crew members, all of them, are so pleasant and patient.
The days passed too quickly , and we found ourselves back in Baltimore. Debarkation was smooth and easy. We are left with memories of a relaxing yet thrilling vacation. Thanks to all! Less

Cabin review: K8055 Large Interior Stateroom
This interior room is close to all of the services we most appreciate on a cruise. The bed was comfortable. The room was very clean. We had plenty of closet space. We chose the room because it is close to the stairs and very close to the Park Cafe/Solarium. Excessive noise was never an issue in this room. We would gladly recommend this cabin to our friends.Read All Large Interior Stateroom (K) Reviews >>
