We flew from Newcastle to Palma, and arrived just after 11am, however it took us over 4 hours to actually get on the boat, even though we were last on the coach at the airport it still sat there for another 30 minutes.Then they took us to ...

We went from Majorca on the Grandeur of the sea's down the Spanish coast to Gib and back on 25th September. I must say that after reading a number of reviews about this ship and it's age etc. which were not very positive, I was pleased ...
I had concerns about travelling with a full time wheelchair user but the staff could not have done more, airport transfers, room access, facilities and trips were all superb.

What can we say? We loved it! We had a great time - the service was everything we could have expected (and we have stayed in some fabulous hotels and have very high expectations!), the ship was spotlessly clean despite some other reviewers ...

Well! I am a cruise-convert! My first ever cruise was a wonderful trip around the Western Mediterranean, taking in Palma de Mallorca, Cannes, Cinque Terre, Rome and Sicily. As this was my first time on a cruise, I was unsure of what to ...
Having been persuaded by members of our family to take an RCI cruise we decided to dip our toes in the water with a cruise aboard what appeared to be the baby of the RCI Fleet.
And what a baby (in our opinion) she turned out to be.
This was the Grandeur's first trips in the Mediterranean after Panama and to be honest it showed. Many of the ship literature, notices etc. and senior staff were Spanish speakers with only the (albeit) few leisure staff newly appointed ...
This was our first cruise and we thought we would try it with an American company and heard that RCI GOS was coming to Western Europe for the first time in May.Amazing price we only paid £460 inc Gratuities...! Plus flights for an ...
