Ship Facts: Grandeur of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Grandeur of the Seas Deck Plans
Grandeur was Grand
I had not cruised on a smaller ship. This changed my mind. The ship size seems to suit my needs better than larger builds. Why? Well I liked the fact that dinning option were limited to the main dining room and the buffet. This makes a more affordable cruise. I have spent countless dollars on up sells to a special dinning experience. The Gatsby did all the same type of foods without the up-charges with just one exception a filet mignon. Food quality was exceptional and the service was prompt and the food always came out the way it was supposed to.

The size of the ship did limit the number of passengers (only 1600) which seemed rather manageable. The public areas were fashionable and not over the top or garish. All of the amenities were in the right place and with only nine floors the ship was real easy to navigate. Room accommodations were what i expected and even the inside room was well lighted and appointed quite well.

Here is the one negative thing I will say that RCCl should take into consideration. They consider the ship to be a smoke free environment. Not so fast RCCL! Smoking is allowed in bars and lounge areas. Nothing can turn me off as fast as the smell of a cigar in Viking Crown room. Balcony rooms are allowed to smoke outside on the patio. Now I don't care who smokes. Heck I worked for a tobacco company. Most societies have adjusted to the ban on indoor smoking
