The 2012 refurbishment saw a refresh of all furniture, carpet, upholstery and linens in the Grandeur of the Seas' 975 cabins. Two categories of inside cabins range in size from 137 to 145 square feet, while standard outside cabins measure 152 square feet. Standard balcony cabins (called "superior oceanviews") are 192 square feet with 39-square-foot balconies. Balconies are each furnished with two chairs and a small table.

Standard cabins are comfortable and practical, and even the smallest feature a tiny sitting areas with sofas and coffee tables. Storage space is generous, with hanging racks and shelving in the closets, drawers and more shelves in the desks/vanities, and nightstands. Cabins feature flat-screen televisions, phones, safes and hair dryers. In-cabin TV's have a fairly expansive listing that includes CNN, Fox News, CNN Headline News, ESPN, TNT, Cartoon Network, Travel Channel, Turner Classic Movies and three movie channels.

Bathrooms have decent storage, though the showers only have one shelf and a clingy curtain. Toiletries are limited to hand soap and a mystery substance (shampoo? body wash?) in an unmarked dispenser in the shower.

Cabin service was exceptional, unobtrusive and thorough. Cabin stewards create imaginative towel-people and creatures as part of turn-down service.

Grandeur offers six types of suites. The Junior Suite (at 248 square feet with a 62-square-foot balcony) is essentially an expanded balcony cabin with a larger sitting area (sofa plus comfy chair) and a bathroom with a bathtub. Grand Suites (353 square feet, 108-square-foot balcony) are even bigger, with more distinction between the sleeping and sitting areas and a larger foyer area. The Owner's Suite (518 square feet, 112-square-foot balcony) has a separate living area with a queen-size sofa bed and several lounge chairs. The Royal Suite (1,087 square feet, 162-square-foot balcony) has a king-size bed in a separate bedroom, a large living room with a queen-size sofa bed, a baby grand piano, and a whirlpool bathtub.

Two suite categories are intended for families. The Family Junior Suite (470 square feet with 75-square-foot balcony) sleeps six with two sets of twin beds (one set in a separate room, and others, which convert to queens) and a double sofa bed in the living room. The Royal Family Suite (487 square feet with a 58-square-foot balcony) features two bedrooms, two bathrooms (one with a shower, the other with a tub), and a double sofa bed and a Pullman bed in the living room. It can accommodate up to eight people.

A Concierge Lounge, carved out of the Viking Crown Lounge in 2012, is open to all suite passengers and Diamond-Plus Crown & Anchor loyalty program members. Amenities include continental breakfast (served daily from 8 to 10 a.m.), hors d'oeuvres and petit fours served in the evening, a self-service bar (no fee), movies and CD's to borrow, and business services (faxing and copying for a fee). A concierge can assist passengers in making reservations for specialty dining and shore excursions, spa and salon appointments; pre-ordering wine at dinner; and arranging private parties. Diamond Crown & Anchor members have their own lounge in the back corner of the South Pacific Lounge, with similar services.

Wheelchair-accessible cabins come in several categories: insides (258 square feet), outsides (262 square feet); balconies (350 square feet with 39-square-foot balconies); and suites (347 square feet with 74-square-foot balconies). These cabins features open bed frames, wider entry doors, space to turn, lowered vanities and closet rods, and bathrooms with wider doors, roll-in showers with fold-down benches, grab bars, raised toilets and lowered sinks.

Our cabin was better than I expected for an older ship. We had a balcony on the 7th deck towards the aft. It was pretty quiet. We heard the engines a little, but not loud at all. It was clean, though small. We had plenty of storage space for all our stuff. There were...continue
