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

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

We are experienced cruisers, but this was our first on Royal Caribbean and we enjoyed it even though there were some things that could have been better. Port arrival was amazingly efficient. We arrived at 10:30 and had no wait at port ... Read more

Before I start speaking about the negatives of this trip, I want to say that one of the crowning highlights was getting onboard the ship. Because this ship has an online pre-check in process that includes adding credit card info and even ... Read more

Back from the 3-Day Anthem Cruise. Let me start off by saying that it was the most beautiful ship I’ve even been on & I go on all the new cruise ships. It was unbelievably stunning with tons to do! I wish I had more than 3 days, ... Read more

To start getting on the ship was terrible. The port was mobbed with people and traffic was backed up for miles. Once inside the cruise terminal people were fighting with the port staff and there was a lot of yelling. I knew from the start ... Read more

The re-positioning cruise from Quebec City to Fort Lauderdale was lovely for the different areas visited and the tremendous fall colours (which were late this year and just in time for us). Really, if you are looking for a unique cruise ... Read more

If you are considering a first time cruise with RCI, buyer beware. RCI said they could get us a great airline ticket from Seattle to Quebec City. What we got was three segments starting out in the morning and arriving at Quebec City at ... Read more

Our cruise was very nice. St. John's NB should not be a stop. There just isn't enough there to warrant a full day. Could be skipped altogether. Bar Harbor and Halifax were outstanding ports. Did not see the colors we thought we would. ... Read more

Only a couple of things on this cruise annoyed me. I understand that people do travel in groups. Does this mean that they are entitled to "save" a bunch of seats in the theater. We arrived early to pick our seats, but were ... Read more

We started our cruise by arriving in Boston 2 days early. Thoroughly enjoyed Boston, walked the Freedom Trail and stopped at several pubs along the way. We had dinner at the Union Oyster House and it was very disappointing. High prices ... Read more

We are seasoned cruisers, having over 25 cruises through a couple of decades. Brilliance of the Seas has many positives. We particularly enjoyed that (1) it had a Gluten-free ‘island’ in the Windjammer buffet; excellent to the ... Read more
