One of the better cruises we have taken. Great ports of call. (Good weather too). Friendly and attentive crew. Good to excellent food. I don't understand how anyone could give this ship a poor review, but we all have our own points of ... Read more

This was a birthday cruise for my sister and a good time was had by all four of us. We chose this ship because of the destinations. The Anthem is a beautiful ship, however, The service you expect of RCCL is not up to par. Tables were ... Read more

Sailing on Anthem of the Seas was a bucket list item for us, due to the much different layout of the ship than we have been used to with the Oasis, Freedom, and Voyager class ships that RCI sails. The ship is a wonderful ... Read more

Just off the Anthem of the Seas first New England run (8/25 to 9/3/2016). We do extensive research prior to booking and knew the approval rating was not great, but Cape Liberty is only 30 minutes away so we decided to give it a try. We ... Read more

Although we have lived in Maryland for 21 years, I haven't thought of cruising out of Baltimore because all ships available are small. We selected Royal Caribbean Grandeur of the Seas out of the convenience and destinations to New England ... Read more

Grandeur has one of the nicest crews that we've found in over 30 cruises. They make every minute on the ship so much nicer. You encounter smiles everywhere and they are all extremely polite and helpful. Grandeur is an older and ... Read more

It was our first cruise out of Baltimore, second cruise overall (both with Royal). We were very impressed with getting on and off ship -- very efficient and orderly. It was only an hour drive for us, so I'm definitely looking to do another ... Read more

We chose this cruise as a change to typical beach resort vacations, since our daughters are 10 and 13. We figured they would enjoy visiting new places where we would not ordinarily go. Photos- very important. I didn't purchase the ... 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

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

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

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
