My husband and I chose the May 13th five night Baltimore/Bermuda sailing on the Grandeur of the Seas to celebrate our 15th anniversary (no kids accompanying us on this cruise!) due to its proximity to our home, the length of the cruise and ... Read more

This was a getaway cruise for just my wife and I to relax away from our kids. However, it started off very poorly as soon as we got to the terminal. We spent almost 1 hour in our car in a line on the street waiting to get into the ... Read more

Cruised during kids sale free event. Made it much more affordable. Kids loved cruising for the first time. Ship was not geared to kids directly but they found plenty to keep them busy/entertained. Bermuda was breathtaking. The food was ... Read more

Of about 14 cruises, this was BY FAR the worst embarkation experience I have ever had. Just shy of 2 hours to park, go thru security (that part was quick), and check in. Horrid line management for dropping off bags and for the check in. ... Read more

We sailed on a 7 night Florida/Bahamas cruise and had a great time. The ship looked a bit dated, but I understand it went into dry dock as soon as we got off of it, so I have no idea what it might look like now. It's one of the smaller ... Read more

Multi-generational travel has become rather commonplace in our family. So, it was not at all extraordinary for three generations of us to decide on a Royal Caribbean cruise to Florida and the Bahamas. Time was limited - as you might ... Read more

Wonderful experience on the Grandeur of the Seas. Dining staff were exceptional and dinner was one of the highlights of the day because of the service provided by Vitaliy and Edith. Staterooms were well-maintained and our attendant was ... Read more

We went on this cruise as a family of 6, four of us along with my parents. Embarkation was as expected for the most part, the big slow downs were due to passengers who wouldn't listen to security when they were told to remove all metal ... Read more

The cruise was leaving out of Baltimore. Very convenient! Previous cruise with Royal Caribbean. We enjoyed the main dining room every night. The waiter Fitzroy and the assistant waiter George Reid were excellent. The staff was very ... Read more

I love Royal Caribbean. The two times I sailed with them where some of the most pleasant vacations ever. You meet a diverse group of people and all the staff is always outstanding. You feel pampered like in a 5 star restaurant. My room ... Read more

We chose this cruise for convience to our home and the port of calls. Service in the dining room was excellent. Ship always looked clean. Room stewart was the best we have had in over ten years. My wife and myself use the casino and all ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the ports-the Southeastern ports and Bahamas should have given us 5 ports over ten days, just the perfect combination of sea time and touring. Overall, a great cruise! PROS: The large interior rooms ... Read more

We chose the cruise for the convenience of going out of Baltimore, a 9 night tour and Charleston. (And we thought we would get an upgraded experience over Carnival.) Our dining staff-- Dexter and Parwan were EXCELLENT. I actually set ... Read more

We chose the 9 Day out of Baltimore on the Royal Caribbean Grandeur of the Seas largely because it fit perfectly in my kids' Spring Break. I understand that the Grandeur is one of RC's smaller ships, but it really needs to either add more ... Read more

Spring Break timing. Reasonable price and close port. Teens can't dance with parents in any of the discos. We like to have a few dances together. Why not. 18+ should be 1 club, and family another! The waiters at the main restaurant ... Read more

Cruise was exceptional. Shout out to Dexter and Panwar in the Main Dining Room. Seeing them every day was actually a highlight for the family! We had had Dexter as a waiter the previous cruise 2 years prior, and he is the best, and ... Read more

We were meeting friends that we've cruised with on Royal Caribbean several times before. The ports of call were perfect for all of us, each basically having their own idea of itinerary when in port. The RC staff ensured that checking in ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the port stops. This has been our 5th RC cruise and our 44th cruise since December 2011, so we have a lot to compare this to. The entire ship needs upgrading. On 3 different days, there were times when the ... Read more

This Southern Caribbean cruise was my third on the Grandeur and there are several reasons for choosing the ship: I live in Baltimore and the pier is only 15 minutes from home; the pier is directly off I-95; everyone at the cruise pier ... Read more

I love the Grandeur of the Seas. The smaller size of the ship allows for a more personal experience. The staff are very welcoming and pleasant. Everyone you come in contact with has a smile on their face and a hello. The main dining room ... Read more
