This cruise was twelve nights to some great southern Caribbean ports, some not visited as often as the more northerly ones. Barbados, St. Lucia and Antigua are a nice change and St. Thomas an St. Martin are more frequently visited ... Read more

We love leaving from our home port of Baltimore (15 minutes away); plus the embarkation is smooth as silk on Grandeur. Debarkation was smooth too just a little slow going through customs; however, we requested the latest (we were ... Read more

Love going out of Baltimore. The port is 15 minutes from our home and the Lady G is a grand old girl. The staff is so friendly that we continue to go back. This was our 8th cruise on the Grandeur. Embarkment / disembarkment out of ... Read more

Cruised to Charleston, Port Canaveral, Miami, Nassau from 10/22/16 to 10/31/16. As always Baltimore was great as a cruise port. Even though the fact that it's 15 minutes from my house is a major factor in liking Baltimore, the staff from ... Read more

I choose the cruise because of the itinerary - Charleston, Miami, Nassau, private island and i always wanted to try Royal Caribbean. It just didn't happen for us. Carnival, NCL, but never on RCI. So, we even drove to Baltimore from NY. ... Read more

This was our fifth cruise on Grandeur and our first in a junior suite. We live an hour from the port of Baltimore and enjoy the fact that we do not have to fly to get to the terminal. As always we dropped off the luggage and sailed through ... Read more

The best part of the cruise was we didn't have to fly. We live close enough and only takes an hour to get to the pier. Embarkation was a breeze. The overall cruise was okay. The food in the main dining room has gone down hill again ... Read more

First of all, the crew is awesome. They go out of their way to make you happy. That said, there were issues. The ship is very old and it shows. The showers are almost unusable, very tiny. The beds were not comfortable and the pillows ... Read more

The cruise director and staff did an excellent job of keeping us entertained and activities/events moving. The headliner shows for the most part were perfect with only one magic act uneven in his performance. The food in the dining room ... Read more

This was cruise #69, we are in 60's cruising since 1984. We sail several lines and honestly are unhappy on what cruising has become. An airline corporate operation at sea. Business model now find a new thing to charge for, eliminate, or ... Read more

My wife and I sailed on the Grandeur of the seas Royal Caribbean cruise for nine nights for our 25th wedding anniversary. The ship only had six children on board which was nice in a way, however there were two thousand customers and only a ... Read more

Chose this cruise due to close proximity of departure port and port of calls for viewing fall foliage. We were not disappointed. Ship crew is fantastic. Food was not up to usual and precious quality, but was ok. Somehow we manage to always ... Read more

We traveled Oct 13-22,2016. We picked the cruise because of the ports. The ports were good to excellent. It was easy for us to get on the ship. We arrived at 1:30 and walked on the ship by 1:50. We were able to carry on our bags right ... Read more

We had always wanted to do this itinerary, so we found a good price and booked it. This is a smaller ship with a big heart! The staff was wonderful, very caring, and professional. We especially want to thank Mennie, our cabin attendant, ... Read more

We took a chance sailing in mid-October from Baltimore to Canada and New England, but we hoped to be in the area at the height of fall colors. It really paid off- Weather was beautiful- warm and sunny at each port. The trees were ... Read more

Great staff and crew but felt that if you didn't purchase a beverage package there was limited availability of complimentary drinks. Also after 1 pm your only choice is room service with a charge between midnight and 5 am. Room was ... Read more

Ok before I say anything else, let me say RCCL and the crew of Grandeur of the Seas did nothing wrong, and went above and beyond the call of duty to make this cruise the best it could be for all passengers. Bottom line if you book your ... Read more

This was our first cruise ever. It was a gift from me to my husband. This was perhaps an extremely challenging cruise for all onboard being that we were facing rough seas due to 2 hurricanes. First, it clearly states that you should be at ... Read more

The Gradeur is my 5th RC ship. At the beginning of the week, I contacted RC about this particular cruise and the possibility of the itinerary changing. Hurricane Matthew was brewing and Nicole was heading to Bermuda. I was told RC would ... Read more

We opted for this ship, cause the reviews where mostly mixed, half good and half not so good, but it felt like the not happy people where over expecting. I don't believe that anymore. The ship opted to not go to Bermuda before it even ... Read more

This ship is 20 years old and shows every day of it. It is in need of a re-fit or probably a trip to the scrap yard. Showers are so small as to be almost unusable. Best bet is to go to the spa for a shower. Alcohol prices are very ... Read more

This is my third cruise on Royal. I don't remember much about my first (Monarch of the Seas), but last year's cruise to Alaska on the Jewel set the bar too high for the Grandeur to meet. I'm not dinging them in my review because the ... Read more
