While we've cruised on other lines, we decided it was time to try Royal Caribbean. And what better test than one of the older and least featured ships in the line, the Grandeur — one due for a refit in 2017. If we enjoyed ourselves ... Read more

After a very busy spring season in our jobs my wife and I thought it would be a good idea to take a vacation for the July 4th Holiday and we wanted to get away. Since we only live an hour from Baltimore and hand not sailed out on Royal ... Read more

We booked this cruise for the itinerary and sailing date as it was the only option that worked for our entire sailing party. The Port: (We heard eventually that the ship was late returning to port that morning, so our prolonged check ... Read more

We took this cruise because of its location and where it's was sail. But the ship was really showing its age. Dirty ceiling panels. Broken mirror around ceiling lights. Hanging electrical wires. Lots rust. The gaming tables covers well ... Read more

This cruise was a booking as part of a larger group booking with families of 25 teenage girls that had a chance to dance on the ship through their local dance company. This is why it was chosen, with the idea in mind that Bermuda is a ... Read more

I was really impressed as the Grandeur is "visibly" an old ship but it packs a punch with the type of service that was being offered. As this was my 3rd cruise on RCCL, I was expecting a great experience and I was not ... Read more

Booked this one a month before because I had the week off for vacation, liked the idea of driving 4 hours to get on a ship and exclude the hassle and cost of flying especially with that recent 3 hour TSA wait nonsense. I sailed RC for the ... Read more

We booked the cruise for my son's family (including 2 grand kids) because Baltimore was convenient, and the itinerary was good. Food was acceptable in the dining room, but the buffet food was poor quality. Entertainment was spotty, and ... Read more

My wife and I took this cruise for our 25th Anniversary. We had a great time. It was our first cruise without our kids, since before we had kids. The ship doesn't have all the bells and whistles the newer ships have and I will admit, I ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was the only one that would fit with the dates that I could get away from work, and the port was close enough to home that we could use award points for our flight. We should have spent more money and taken ... Read more

For our 53rd wedding anniversary, we chose Canada and New England as we had cruised there before and just didn't want to go to the Caribbean. We especially liked the fact that it was nine days. Having sailed on the Grandeur twice before ... Read more

My husband booked this cruise as a birthday gift to me, especially because I love lobsters and have always wanted to visit Maine. This was the best cruise ever. The crew was exceptionally friendly. We enjoyed most of the entertainment. Our ... Read more

The port of Baltimore is the best port to cruise from. Embarkation went quick and smooth. Our room wasn't ready until 1PM. so we went to the Windjammer for lunch and as usual it was very crowded. The food was ok. When we could go to our ... Read more

This was my first cruise so I have nothing to compare it with. Overall, it was okay. Not spectacular, not awful. The water was thankfully smooth, the weather cool. We had a cabin on deck 2 in the center and it was very quiet and we barely ... Read more

1) The good parts of this cruise were the ports and the food! We loved all the stops (Boston, Portland, Bar Harbor, St. John, and Halifax). We also loved the food. We never ate in a specialty dining room because the food in the main ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was close to home, not getting on a plane is the way to go if possible. We also chose it because it was our anniversary. Overall this was disappointing. The Grandeur is probably 20 years old, and ... Read more

This was my 2nd experience on Grandeur of the Seas. My first cruise in 2013 was WONDERFUL! Excellent customer service on every level. From stateroom attendant (loved Ida Ashley) to each porter. To say this cruise was different would be an ... Read more

First time cruise with Mrs. Cruiser and another couple. No kids on this trip. We had a blast, so much so that both couples booked two more Royal Caribbean cruises, one for Dec 2016 and another for May 2017. Getting on board in ... Read more

This was our first cruise. We chose this cruise because of the value and the convenience of cruising out of a port close to home. The Granduer of the Seas is a smaller, older ship, so keep that in mind when choosing it. It doesn't ... Read more

My first cruise - sort of a trial run to see if this sort of vacation is for me. Turns out, I think I'm ready to book another. But probably not on this boat. I booked the five-night cruise to Bermuda out of Baltimore because it was ... Read more

I will start with a little back-round, we are Diamond cruisers with over 17 cruises behind us. We prefer drive up ports due to luggage and usually purchasing large amounts of alcohol to bring back with us. We are active people and like to ... Read more

I choose this cruise to celebrate my birthday, and the convenience of leaving from close to home. This is one of the smaller ships we have been on, it was very nice, but showing its aging in different areas. One of them were the pool and ... Read more
