Boarded early to learn the ship. We were so excited.Found our cabin small but ok. It did not have a mini fridge. Found paper work for romance package i ordered for the wife and i. Our bon voyage champaine and cupcakes were not there. They were suppose to be. Called room service and they said the cupcakes were not ready. We did not get them until 5 hours after we set sail. No bon voyage party for us.
We ate in the main dinning room that night and had the worst prime rib of my life.
The veggies werent even cooked through.
The next day we finally met our room attendant.Yep on the second day. Most staff we encountered were rude and ill mannered.
Our breakfast in bed we were suppose to have, part of romance package. Turned in the paper to head waiter like it said stating what we wanted and the time.In the morning only half the order was delivered. The experience of romantic breakfast in bed on ship with your sweetie...don't know it was ruined.
The ports we visited were fine because we were able to get off the ship.
This was our third cruise.
The first two were on Carnival, The Pride out of Baltimore. We highly recommend The Pride. That is the level of service we like. Their food is outstanding. Very attentive staff. The events are all the time unlike on The Grandeur.RCI really fell short in many ways for us.
The Grandeur had 2 comedians on the ship 1 day each. The Pride 2 comedians a day
going all week and not the same comedians either.
We paid more to go on The Grandeur to get so much less.
Less activities, service, etc....
If you want to sail out of Baltimore please please please sail Carnival on The Pride. You can get a balcony for the price of an ocean view.
