The pressure to "spend more" on this or that was all encompassing. Embarkation and disembarkation went fairly smoothly. Our cabin steward Irwan Sanusio was outstanding as were our usual dining room waiters, Joseph and Rian. Shows ... Read more

Picked this cruise because of the Itinerary. It would have been nice if we hadn't missed the tender stop at Coco Cay ( I later found out they this ship missed thie stop more times than it makes it. I spoke to one lady at lunch that said ... Read more

The Grandeur of the Seas is a nice ship. Not a great ship. Well, it’s 20 years old. And though there have been updates, its showing its age. Although not a major distraction, I did note a large rust stain in my cabin window. It ... Read more

My wife and I chose this cruise for the convenience of the port (Baltimore), the timing, and the price. This was our third cruise on Grandeur in 9 years, all from Chesapeake bay ports (Norfolk and Baltimore). Overall we felt at home on ... Read more

As a point of reference: this is our first on Grandeur, second out of Baltimore, first out of Baltimore in winter. We have 21 sailings under our belt with four cruise lines, and hit Diamond status on Royal with this trip. We booked it ... Read more

To say this ship was a huge disappointment is an understatement. First I will start with the pros as there were a few. Chelsea O' Toole at the spa was amazing. Super sweet and went out of her way to help us relax. Next was our awesome ... Read more

We chose this cruise because Triple A was having a special that included transportation to the port and the cruise was very reasonably priced. I was skeptical, as the ship was older and smaller than we had previously cruised on, and with ... Read more

I first sailed on Empress out of NYC in 2001 just before 911. Being back on board filled me with mixed emotions. Overall, it is a really quaint ship. I must admit that I missed the lack of activities for Crown and Anchor members. There ... Read more

My boyfriend chose this cruise as my first one for us a short getaway and to see if I actually like it....needless to say, I LOVED IT!!! It was Super Bowl weekend which made it better being that we are football fans. The crew was great, ... Read more

I have cruised about 4 times now. This ship along with her sister Majesty should be retired.. or it should be stated that it is a very basic cruise ship. Once you've toured the ship (about 30 mins bow to stern) you're done. There is ... Read more

I choose this ship because at the time the sale was great and I needed to find something to do for my son's 15th Birthday. There were mixed reviews about the size of the ship since it's the smallest from RC so we knew what we were ... Read more

We have reviewed this ship before so I will limit this to things unique to these two four night back to back cruises. Nassau and Key West were the two ports of call with one sea day in between. Unlike most cruises to Key West, these ... Read more

We chose this cruise based on the good deal we got, but from the moment of arrival, there was nothing that seemed "discounted" about our cruise (in a good way). We had the best time of our lives. The staff was friendly, ... Read more

Came back to Royal Caribbean because of prior cruise. Food and service was excellent. Island activities well planned. Deluxe drink package a must and well used. Only problem was with our cabin. We were not happy with vile odors coming from ... Read more

This was my first cruise. You have to be careful of all the hidden fees. Do your homework before booking. The entertainment weren't that good and when you're confined, you don't have much choice. The excursions are overprice and not worth ... Read more

I thought that the Empress was part of a line that gave great service, entertainment, etc. Wrong. The service was great, however! The cabin was fine, but the outside window was so dirty that the view was difficult. The strangers ... Read more

I had a very enjoyable 4 days on board the Majesty. What impressed me most was the service. I did not run into one single grumpy or half-hearted worker the entire cruise. Every one on board seemed truly happy to be there, they acted ... Read more

I am a diamond member and usually enjoy cruising with RCCL. On this cruise, my wife and I did not get any sleep because of loud banging (construction) going on below our cabin. The Director of Housing was attentive and immediately changed ... Read more

My wife chose this cruise for our anniversary. I have been on nearly all of the RCCL cruise ships and I have to say, this was the worst. First of all, let's talk about the Junior Suite ripoff game they have going on here. They sell you a ... Read more

I was looking for a cruise that sailed on my partners birthday, so this was the one that I choose, for being near our city and on the same date. Embarkation was real smooth, though it would have been nice to get more information on ... Read more
