I just read the latest review with the above title, although they said the cruise was geared toward 70-90 years old. That is not true at all. Yes, there were not many families with young children, but hey, it was February and most ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we didn't want to drive to Florida. Baltimore is an 8 hour drive for us and with the Canadian dollar sinking, it was going to be expensive for us with hotels and food. We arrived at the port which is close to ... Read more

The reason we choose this cruise ship was out of convenience. We live in Pennsylvania so it saved flight costs to drive to Baltimore. What we did not realize is that 80 percent of the cruise passengers were 70-90 year old's. They mostly ... Read more

We embarked on this cruise one day late due to snow storm Jonas that dumped 30 inches of snow and delayed the return of the Grandeur to Baltimore by one day. The check-in process was very slow since so many of the staff could not get into ... Read more

This was my first cruise on RCI Granduer of the Seas, chosen because I took my mother-in-law and the port of Baltimore was convenient for driving rather than flying. She has sailed with RCI in the past and for her this was also a cruise ... Read more

I just recently returned from my third cruise with Royal Caribbean, and although my first two were fantastic experiences, this one was my last. Horrific service from their Guest Services and the main dining room, and poor communication ... Read more

Great cruise. My wife and I take 2 cruises yearly. I'm 47 and my wife is 46. The patrons on this cruise is generally an older crowd which is cool for us. Not a bunch of teenagers running all thru out the ship. We cruise out of Baltimore ... Read more

This was my 3rd cruise on the Grandeur of the Seas, 31st cruise overall. Yes she has been around for a long time but I think she is still a beautiful ship. A little worn here and there but overall well maintained. The crew is excellent ... Read more

We just returned from our 10 night cruise to the Caribbean on the Grandeur. What a wonderful cruise. First, we spent the night before in Baltimore prior to the cruise. Embarkation was a breeze. We drove to the port, parked the car, ... Read more

This was our 3rd family cruise. First two were on the Disney cruise line - so Disney will be my basis of comparison. Our traveling party included my wife and I, our 17 year old daughter, our 25 year old son and his friend. We had two ... Read more

There are a lot of very in-depth reviews so rather than give the play by play, i thought I'd try to give more of an overview and an impression of things that stood out for us. We were a group of 16 ranging from age 8-55 so we had many ... Read more

A large group of family (18) for Mom's 90th Bday, most of whom had never cruised. We've been on Celebrity, Princess, HAL and NCL so this is older but nice... Ship was completely sold out- decorated nicely (but somewhat sparsely) for ... Read more

Chose the Grandeur for a number of reasons: 1. Looking for an easy break from winter 2.Something close to home 3.Good Price. Grandeur gave us all of these. The ship is not the largest, the newest, or the glitziest of RCCL's many ... Read more

In short, great food, great staff, nice but small ship, and lots and lots of very old people with walkers, and scooters. And 10 days (9 really) with 5 at sea is just too long. Having been spoiled on the newest and largest ship of 2010 ... Read more

If you just want quantity of food, this is the ship for you because there is no quality unless you dine in the speciality restaurants and even then it is iffy. Even the oatmeal is inedible. This cruise line is so far below the others that ... Read more

My mother and I did a back-to-back cruise to Florida, Nassau, Cozumel, Haiti, and Falmouth. We have done this cruise before, and we enjoyed every minute of it. Embarkation in Baltimore is still not quite as professional as Bayonne, but ... Read more

This was my first time on an ocean-going cruise. I was afraid to be on a ship with that many people, given all the horror stories I have read about Norovirus and malfunctions at sea. I chose Grandeur of the Seas, because I live only an ... Read more
