After booking this cruise I was a little nervous after reading past reviews in august thru oct. A few were complaining that the ship needed a makeover stupid things like rust on the balcony and oak in the interior! The whole ship ... Read more

Since we were in Florida for a family wedding, we found a great deal for this 4 day cruise. The ship is one of the oldest in the Royal Caribbean fleet and looking at recent reviews on line we didn't have high expectations. But honestly ... Read more

Received cruise as a gift, been on RCL many times all wonderful. This boat is a disaster. From when we got on, until when we got off, was disgusting. Entered the Windjammer, sat down and chair arms came apart, saw this several times during ... Read more

This cruise was a great price for us, since we could drive to Baltimore, saving the cost of flights. We knew the first & last days of the cruise would be chilly & we can never complain about the weather. The food was good, we ... Read more

We like to sail from Baltimore and the Grandeur is the only ship of the Royal Caribbean fleet that sails from that port. It is only three hours but we go the day before and stay at the Best Western, part the car and use their shuttle ... Read more

The service and staff on this ship were exceptional. Eveyone was friendly and courteous. Attention to detail was above par. Michael Landry was the hotel manager and he runs a tight ship. He is visible and cares about what the ... Read more

Usually love sailing with Royal Caribbean, but the Grandeur of the Seas has seen better days. The food was "meh" and the service in the dining room was so slow that even though we had dinner at 5:30pm, we were never done in time ... Read more

My wife and I cruised the Grandeur of the Seas last year, mid November, 2015, and the quality of the food was a lot to be desired. The "Manhattan" steak was small, thin and tasted like leather, this cruise, all of the meal in the ... Read more

This was my hubby's 55th Birthday cruise. We wanted to try a suite on RCCL, as we have done NCL's Haven in the past, and just loved it! My husband works long, hard hours, so we wanted to see if we liked a shorter cruise that we might be ... Read more

We took a Grandeur of the seas 9 night out of Baltimore. We did this primarily because of the driving distance from Ohio. Getting onto the ship was very easy and convenience. The best embarkation to date. We have been on 5 cruises to date ... Read more

We were trying out the cruise from our travel agent and loved the service and the cruise, this was a good Royal Caribbean cruise. The other cruises were less hospitable, but this Indian and Philippines hospitality crew was simply ... Read more

This was a last minute cruise to escape the election ads. Had a great time on the Majesty. Had a late departure and boarding and never did find the exact reason, not sure why RCCL kept it a secret. Crazy how the rumors spread. Can ... Read more

We wanted a port intensive shorter cruise (i.e. No at sea days) and the Enchantment filled the bill with a long day into night in Nassau. We booked fairly last minute and got the last jr suite available. The pros were it's good size of ... Read more

This was my first cruise trip and I felt very worried. From the moment that I selected Royal Caribbean International as the "go to" company, I found out that I made the right choice. From the online checking services to ... Read more

We were highly disappointed with the quality of the Empress cruise. Rooms were very small, dirty, and bed linens had lots of rips. Directions on the cruise was lacking. During our snorkeling excursion in Nassau no one greeted us or told us ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we liked Oasis of the Seas, and this was the newer, improved version of it. We went on a 3 day Bahamas cruise. The ship is stunning; everything in it is beautiful, magnificent. Wherever you look there are ... Read more

This was the inaugural sailing from the US port in Ft. Lauderdale. The world's largest cruise ship, with approximately 6000 passengers. There are a lot of public spaces, so for the most part, you don't realize the large population on ... Read more

My DW and I were excited to see RCI offer this 3-night cruise as the inaugural sailing from it's new home in Port Everglades. We were looking for a quick trip to celebrate our 10-year anniversary and this was perfect and probably our only ... Read more

Arriving at the port we easily parked and entered the preboard area. New check-in as we have paper seapass sheets and our actual cards are outside/inside the cabins. Not sure this is saving any time, but it's a trial and see period. We did ... Read more
