Chose as to the closeness of our home to port without flying and a nice get away. Found the ship very well kept for the age. Very clean and we could not have had a cleaner room and cabin attendant. The meals are a bit only average ... Read more

We chose Grandeur because Baltimore is just a couple of hours up I-95 for us. Embarkation was very quick and smooth without any problems. After reading so many negative reviews on the condition of the ship, we really didn't know what to ... Read more

We cruised over a dozen times mostly on RCCL. This was our second cruise on the Grandeur of the Seas. Last time was one of the first cruises after the aft area fire. This ship is showing it's age. Some of the common area furniture was ... Read more

We chose this port for proximity and the ship due to familiarity. Grandeur has a great layout, itineraries and crew. We thoroughly enjoyed the destination port, excursions, dining entertainment and cabin service. The Captain expertly ... Read more

I've gone on more cruises than I can count, and on many different lines. I chose this because it is one of only two that sail out of Baltimore, where family members live. I found the cruise adequate for my purposes, that is, to give my ... Read more

Embarkation was really fast, we got to the port of Baltimore around 2:00 pm and was on the ship by 2:15 pm. The Grandeur of the Seas is a great ship. I like the smaller size, nicer balcony room and overall service. Our cabin was a ... Read more

We choose this cruise as an end of summer treat before my husband started back to school. The cruise was wonderful. The first wonder was the port in Baltimore. After a 21/2 hour drive, we got to the port...how easy. As we followed ... Read more

My wife and I cruised to Bermuda with our two oldest granddaughters (almost 17 and 14) on the Grandeur last week. We normally cruise out of Florida in the winter but planned this cruise for when the girls would be on summer vacation. The ... Read more

We chose this cruise for some time with our grandchildren and children. The grandkids spent time at the pool, rock climbing wall and playing shuffleboard. We dined at Chops specialty restaurant and the buffet as well as the dining room. We ... Read more

The best way I can summarize this is by comparing the cruise lines to fast food joints. If Carnival is the McDonald's of the seas, then RC's Grandeur of the Seas is Wendy's. By a hair. Not even a Panera. A Wendy's. The good: The ... Read more

Although we have lived in Maryland for 21 years, I haven't thought of cruising out of Baltimore because all ships available are small. We selected Royal Caribbean Grandeur of the Seas out of the convenience and destinations to New England ... Read more

Grandeur has one of the nicest crews that we've found in over 30 cruises. They make every minute on the ship so much nicer. You encounter smiles everywhere and they are all extremely polite and helpful. Grandeur is an older and ... Read more

It was our first cruise out of Baltimore, second cruise overall (both with Royal). We were very impressed with getting on and off ship -- very efficient and orderly. It was only an hour drive for us, so I'm definitely looking to do another ... Read more

We chose this cruise as a change to typical beach resort vacations, since our daughters are 10 and 13. We figured they would enjoy visiting new places where we would not ordinarily go. Photos- very important. I didn't purchase the ... Read more

This was a family cruise to celebrate my parents' 60th wedding anniversary, so they selected the ship and the destination. It was....okay. This was the 6th cruise we've done in the last several years, and the second on RCCL. I won't go out ... Read more

First time on Royal Caribbean and sailed on Grandeur of the Seas. Room is small, but functional. Bathroom is tiny but well organized. Tip in the shower: to keep the shower curtain from sticking to you, hose it down from top to bottom. ... Read more

Honestly, I book this to level up before a family cruise in December on the Navigator. I had never been to Bermuda or Bahamas and got a great deal on both the cruise and airfare. I had low expectations of the ship and the ports. Boy oh ... Read more
