We just completed our third cruise on Grandeur of the Seas on March 20th. It was absolutely great as have been the other two. When we got to our suite the luggage was already in the room so we began unpacking. Then we got a knock on our door and it was our room attendant. I knew from the voice that it was our favorite attendant Yudi. We have him for our trip in 2014 and was hoping that he would still be there. As with the last time, I gave Yudi a box of chocolate. We try to take something to certain people that we have met because they do not have time to get off the ship and visit Baltimore. As dinner time rolled around we went to the MDR and met our dining guest. They are some truly nice people who live in Pa and when we got back home I sent a request to their facebook page so we can stay in touch. Hopefully this will be a friendship like we developed in 2008. It was our first cruise and the people that we dined with that night are still very much a part of our life - we are definitely friends for life. Definitely enjoyed each of the dining occasion, the wait staff was wonderful and they did fulfill little requests for the other people that we were dining with. They had a desire to have corn muffins and the next time they magically appeared, that night and the rest of the cruise as well. And when you are given the menu, if you don't see something that you like, ask .. you just might get your wish. The CD and his wife (John & Katrina) are so good. It was not until we left the ship and started thinking back that we realized, that job takes so much energy that I believe the average person would be totally worn out at the end of one day. They provided all of us with some much fun, it will be something for us to remember for the rest of our lives. We stayed in the suites on this trip as we have done with the others .. same cabin .. same ship .. and it is something that we won't change. My wife and I did our first cruise on Grandeur in 2009 for our 35th wedding anniversary. That year we traveled to Bermuda for a 5 days cruise. Then we came back to the Grandeur in 2014 to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary, this time to Bermuda but on a 7 day cruise, there just is not enough time when you do a 5 day cruise. We look forward to going to Bermuda in 2019 for our 45th wedding anniversary (Lord willing). It will once again be in cabin 8510 which is where our cruising experience began. Unfortunately we know that Yudi will not be the room attendant because he is going to move to the Harmony. We wished him luck and who knows, maybe we will cross pathes again. Love the entertainment on the ship .. of course the Love and Marriage game is always the best because you never know what answer the contestant who make it on the stage are going to give. This time we had a couple who had been married for 65 years and they of course got the longest married seat. The one man was giving answers that left the audience rolling with laughter and John the CD did his best to encourage him too! Beyond this game we enjoy doing the trivia games. Giving this 5 stars because we have been on one other ship, The Enchantment, but we consider The Grandeur our "home". The only reason we were on the other ship was because they traded places with each other for one year. We definitely look forward to our next trip on this ship because we know that we are going to be treated well by the staff in all departments. I am a huge KISS fan and the motto of the band is .. You wanted the best ... well when you are on the Grandeur you have the best in cruising ships. It might be small but everyone on board has a huge heart. And we hope that one day the Captain of the ship will win at least one of the cake making contests! I still think his cake was the winner but they threw in a ringer to defeat him. Read Less

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on this cruise. The ship is small enough so that you feel you are on your own private yacht with many of your friends. It was easy to meet our fellow passengers during the nightly cocktail/social hour and quickly found some couples with whom we 'clicked'. The lounge is spacious with many different seating areas for visiting. Dining experience was delightful, also, with a good and varied menu. Loved that they tried to serve the regional food.....in this case, crab! The crew was great.....young, enthusiastic and eager to please. We have been on the Golden Odyssey and Sea Goddess as well as America Cruise West, and although the first two ships are superb in every way and perhaps more seasoned and professional, we couldn't find fault with the young people who served us.
