This was supposed to be a cruise to see the fall foliage, but the weather had been so warm leading up to the cruise that the trees were still green. I guess that is a good enough reason to repeat this cruise someday. We arrived in ... Read more

Embarkation: Boarding the ship was efficient once we passed the security checkpoint which was typically inefficient. We required a wheel chair to board. Ship’s personnel were courteous and took my wife and I directly to the ... Read more

Been on several cruises and this was my favorite ship. Easy to find venue locations and love the promenade concept with various eateries to just sit at and relax. Lots of comfy places to just hang out. Saturday Night Fever show was really ... Read more

We had a junior suite on deck 9. The embarkation was very efficient. We were on the ship in about twenty minutes. The suite was spacious and all that we expected. The ship was large - very large. The closet made home keeping very easy. The ... Read more

Royal Caribbean Is a big ripoff. Just did a New England/Canada cruise and the cruise line canceled one of the ports for a trumped up reason, which I found out later. Then, they did not find another port in its place, there was at least one ... Read more

I’ve sailed with Princess on different ships many times. I enjoyed every cruise on Princess. Thought I would give Royal Caribbean a try for a change. I sailed on it once years ago on a short trip on their Radiance of The Seas. Was ... Read more

Fastest onboard process ever. Oldest overall passengers ever, not a problem with them; but not enough venues on ship to accommodate a predominantly indoor activity seeking age group. Had to get to the show 45 minutes early to get in, so ... Read more

We were told to show up between 1 and 4 because coast guard was conducting an inspection. We had a rental car and dropped off our bags with one of the baggage valets at the port around 10:15 am, tipped her and off we went to return our ... Read more

Embarkation was smooth for us, but debarkation was a headache every time, but especially for leaving the last day which dragged on for an hour. Many times at port the lines were very long down a narrow hallway next to cabins. The lines ... Read more

This was a special cruise to Maine and Canada, 9 days total, instead of the usual 7 day cruise. We choose it because of the longer length, but also because we can drive to the port of Boston in about 45 minutes. We enjoy driving to ... Read more

The embarkation process was probably the smoothest of our 30+ sailings. The ship was great. Very clean and the staff overall were fantastic; always personable and cheerful. We originally had My time Dining, we did not go the first ... Read more

Best to begin with a positive - stops were quite enjoyable and onboard entertainment was excellent. Beyond these not much was above average. The ship is not impressive by any standard of appearance excellence, yet from a functional view ... Read more

We have sailed on Grandeur two other times. This time I decided to get a Jr suite for our anniversary. That was a mistake. On this ship it was small and the balcony was very small and no lounge chairs, they wouldn't fit anyway. I didn't ... Read more

We were impressed with the cleanliness of the ship, its size and the many different venues. Plenty to do on board. 3,600 passengers but didn't feel crowded. Never had trouble getting pool loungers. The cantilevered hot tubs in Solarium ... Read more
