Even thought the ship was full one could always find a deck chair. While chairs were limited in the solarium I found that area hot and not visually attractive. I have preferred this area before but did not stay there at all. I found the ... Read more

I picked this cruise because of the Port, Ship, and Itinerary. The embarkation staff has everything running so smoothly. We were on the ship by 10:45am. Grandeur is one of the smallest and oldest ships and I knew that before I ... Read more

We needed a long vacation. The 12 day cruse was just the ticket. 5 beautiful stops. We will be returning next year for sure. The ship is very small compared to newer ones today but it wasn't a over crowded feeling. We got to meet a lot of ... Read more

Grandeur of the Seas used to be my favorite ship. Our cruise started out bad, the balcony stateroom was very dirty! I waited until the 2nd day to see if it would be cleaned but no. The toilet, around where the seat screws to the ... Read more

We had a nice time on this voyage; no big WOW factor, other than the price we paid. We got a very good deal in my opinion averaging around $60/day per person.,This being a smaller ship though, doesn't really allow itself for WOW factors. ... Read more

This was our first time on the Grandeur. We were attracted by the itinerary and wanted to try an aft mini-suite. On the plus side, the crew was extraordinary with their commitment to customer service. The ship, although showing its age, ... Read more

We booked this because we need to cruise out of Baltimore only. We had the 9-night trip, and I was worried I would get bored with two cruising days on both ends. No way! It was an awesome trip. Our only previous trip was on a Disney ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it was closer to our home in Tennessee than many of the others we have been on. The port of Baltimore was close to our hotel (Best Western Plus on Belle Grove Road in Brooklyn, MD) and we were able to leave our car ... Read more

We choose this cruise as we wanted to go to the Bahamas, Charleston and CocoCay. Unfortunately we were unable to go to CocoCay (seems to be a fairly regular occurrence). As the port is close for a lot of people to drive to, the variety of ... Read more

This cruise can be a very relaxing cruise. the ship is a smaller ship and does not provide a lot of activity for children. Which in this case, was ok because there were not a lot of children on board and it was relaxing. The ship, ... Read more
