We wanted to get married on the cruise and it worked out great. We did not have to want for anything while we were there. The entertainment was great. Tanya and Susan were fantastic and such high energy. The dining room with our servers at table 424 could not have been better. They are so friendly and by the second night they new what we wanted without asking. We loved Kings Wharf and Cococay but were not as impressed with Nassas. I felt very unsafe there. It was dirty and had we known about the Atlantis tour we would have taken it. We will go on this ship for sure again and I hope to have another great time. The people who work for you could not have been more friendly and also so kind. We enjoyed it more than we could express. Im glad that we took Royal Caribbean as our first cruise. Read Less

Loved the ship, the crew was friendly and the food good!. The VROOM internet was the fastest I have ever seen on a ship (still not fast) WE started off out of PORT BALTIMORE--what a joy there they actually took our luggage out of our trunk we didn't have to handle it. Parking was safe and secure it took us only less than 30 min once we entered the port to get on the ship. The first day at sea was a little ruff however that is what happens on a ship sometimes, we enjoyed the day checking out things to do. Once we arrived in Bermuda, we had our shipwreck snorkel HIGHLY recommend!! then we enjoyed a great dinner at CHOPS...saw the comedian and enjoyed that. The next day we toured the island via segways and had a great local guide named TROY funny young man and very knowledgeable!! Going out of port was enjoyable...the water all the way home was calm and we enjoyed the magic act and the new comedian that was there. Two things I would tell people to take advantage of---the drink package w/internet, cost us 365 for 5 days included internet and all inclusive booze as well as soft drinks and premium coffee. The second would be the 150 for three eating experiences at the speciality restaurants well worth the money.... great cruise Read Less

I can't say enough good things about the cruise my DH and I took to celebrate our 25th anniversary on the Carnival Pride. From the accommodations, to the friendly crew, to the Carnival Excursions, the entire experience was absolutely fantastic. This was only our second cruise (first back in 1999), but we've already booked 2 more! We boarded the ship in Baltimore - such an easy boarding experience. Then we enjoyed all the ship had to offer - Steakhouse reservations one evening, comedy shows throughout, a Behind the Fun tour, several stage shows, and the Cheers! drink package. Our waiters Francisco, Igusti, and Michele were so attentive and did a fabulous job making us feel spoiled. The Serenity Pool (though often crazy crowded) was a nice respite from the regular Lido deck pool. Our room #7192 was perfectly situated in the middle of everything, but was not at all noisy. The balcony was fantastic - so nice to be able to watch the ship pull into Bermuda and dock, then watch it all drift away as we sailed off. :( The Carnival Excursions, though somewhat pricey, were definitely worth it. Highly recommend the Restless Native Catamaran snorkeling excursion. We had a private cove all to ourselves to snorkel, look for seashells, or just float and enjoy paradise. The crew (Zander, Sam & Steve) were very personable and made us feel right at home. And the Rum Swizzles and freshly made chocolate chip cookies were perfect for the ride back. Also, the Horseshoe Bay excursion (though way too short) was an awesome experience. The driver even took us the long way back to the ship, past the Gibbs lighthouse, for some photo ops. Check out the Arts and Crafts market and the Ferry (within walking distance to the ship) - very nice! Also, visit Hamilton via the Ferry (only $4.00 one-way) and enjoy some of the amazing shops in town. I honestly can't wait to go back to Bermuda! Read Less

DH & I were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary, a new job for him, & my retirement. We had been on Grandeur twice before, but not the New England/Canada itinerary. From the beginning, we were very pleased with our trip and the service provided by the crew. Embarkation was very easy, everyone at the Baltimore port was pleasant. We were on the ship before 11:00 and settled in the Solarium where we love to watch people as they board. The Park Cafe opened for lunch at 11::45 & we had salads w/ roast beef. We are both Gluten Free due to my health issues. DH had emailed the Diamond Lounge Concierge prior to our cruise to ask if some GF snacks could be provided during the evening social time. Francis and his staff went above and beyond, making sure that we had our own plate of warm snacks prepared each evening. Francis, Dennis, and Andreea made our time spent in the Diamond Lounge some of the most enjoyable and memorable we have had on any of our RCI ships. I must emphasize that we alerted Francis AHEAD of time. I would never expect someone to deal with our food needs without giving them a head's up. We were also surprised to receive a bottle of sparking wine from the Guest Services Officer Kumar Kunchipudi and chocolate covered strawberries from DL Concierge Francis to celebrate our anniversary. Also on the subject of food, we do not eat dinner in the MDR. We simply do not enjoy spending the amount of time a typical meal takes. We usually go to the Windjammer where the foods are labeled for food allergies. The first evening, I asked for assistance putting together a meal and was introduced to Chef Kutty. The first item we passed looked delicious but had noodles & Kutty said, "Be careful, you cannot eat that." I said, "I know. I used to love eating food like that. But not anymore." Well, that was all she wrote! He made some for me with GF noodles and brought it out to our table. After that, every night he made something different, GF and very tasty! The only negative experience I had was at the Spa of all places. I NEVER use the spa but as a treat I had booked a Deep Tissue Massage & expected to receive 20% off. During the pre-massage consult, the woman (I do not remember her name) convinced me to add hot stones to my treatment, saying it would add only $20. I repeated this to her to make sure I heard her correctly. Well, what she didn't say was that it was $20 because she used my 20% on the Hot Stone treatment and I was charged full price for the more expensive Deep Tissue massage. I didn't catch this as I signed & left because she was strong arming me to buy almost $200 worth of product and I just wanted out of there! I will never go back to the spa. For what it's worth that was the only time I had anyone annoy me with a sales pitch. People would come up and ask if we were interested, we would say no thanks and they would leave. One young man from Ukraine was asking about eating at Giovanni's. We kept asking him questions about Ukraine and enjoyed talking to him for almost 20 minutes! We got off at each port and were glad to have the last 2 days at sea so we could rest. BOSTON - We met family there and walked on the Freedom Trail. DH loves to take pictures so he had a wonderful time! Mikes Pastry's has some GF treats PORTLAND - Walked and took pictures. Not much to see here. BAR HARBOR - Our excursion to Little Cranberry Island was cancelled so we walked up Main Street and shopped. Geddy's Restaurant serves GF lobster rolls! The Scrimshaw Workshop, 150 Main St - artist uses fossilized mammoth & walrus bones/tusks which are apparently in great supply. His work is amazing. We usually try to buy a piece of jewelry that represents the area we visit & didn’t expect to get anything this trip. I got a beautiful pendant he designed the has a lighthouse on it. ST. JOHN - Walked to and from the Reversing Falls, Oh my aching feet!! Take a bus! Bit of a disappointment, there is a huge factory/plant of some kind right across from the falls that ruins the view IMO. HALLIFAX - Walked to the Maritime Museum for the Titanic & the Halifax Explosion exhibits. Well worth it. The Halifax Explosion was 100 yrs ago & there is a lovely quilt on display. Both exhibits were sobering and fascinating. Next time, hope to go to Peggy’s Cove. We will do this itinerary again one day, hopefully on Grandeur. We have future cruises planned on The Freedom and The Oasis, but we love the Grandeur. She is a lovely, little ship wth a caring, hard-working crew. Read Less

This cruise turned out to be perfect for us because we really wanted more days in Bermuda as 5-7 days was too short a trip. This was our 1st "big boat" cruise, and we were very comfortable with the ship size and company of the other 2,000 guests. We enjoyed finding quiet areas of the ship to read and had no difficulty locating a deck chair or lounge chair in one of the common areas. We were on deck 2, and enjoyed having a window, but realized that we were not in our cabin much. The bathroom/shower was small, but adequate, and there was abundant storage for our needs. We did bring an over the door (bathroom) clear shoe "pocket" storage that helped us keep track of small items, and a tiny fan because we like air movement. We did not experience any sea-sickness at all, but were fortunate to have calm seas. This trip was ideal for us because we had busy port day excursions interspersed with two "at sea" days for R&R. It was the perfect combination for us. in Bermuda taking the RC segway tour (Troy was our wonderful tour guide), the RC sunset boat tour rum tasting (Goslings), and the snorkeling/kayaking in Devil's Bay. All were terrific! The segway tour included the dockyards as well as a bit of local travel nearby to see more secluded swimming and "glass" beaches. We enjoyed hearing about Bermudian life and flora too. The America's Cup race was ongoing at the time of our visit, which was cool to watch from the ship or shore, and to see the amazing yachts in the harbor. The snorkeling in gorgeous Devil's Bay was our first experience and we loved seeing the brain and fan corals and the multitudes of brightly colored fish. Great experience. We were not enamored of Nassau, but we did take the RC land & sea tour, which was "OK," to see some of the island's landmarks and hear some of the history. This was easy and enjoyable, but my least favorite excursion. The guides were informed but very 'canned' and although the seascape in Nassau is beautiful, the land simply is not. Most of the water tour was simply pointing out where celebrities live. The disparity of rich/poor was blatant, and the litter on land and in coastal areas was disturbing. It would be nice to see some of the extreme wealth trickle down to those providing so much of the island services. We had a few minutes to see the Atlantis Resort, and enjoyed the lovely setting and landscaping. This seems to be the attempt to keep tourists from seeing the 'dark' side of this island. At Coco Cay we were awed by the beautiful beaches and the great picnic buffet that RC provided for us to enjoy. RC has created their own little heavenly island here - Nicely done. We also went on the RC Stingray excursion and loved every minute of this! The stingray "wranglers" provided education and great experiences for us to hold and feed the rays. These beautiful creatures swim around your legs and allow one to see and touch them. My husband called them "slimy cats" the way they brush up around one's legs! Feeding them just means holding the squid below their mouths as they "suck like a Hoover." We enjoyed every minute of this excursion, including the fast boat ride over to the island. We rented snorkeling gear at Coco Cay too and had a great afternoon exploring the wrecks and reefs provided in the bay. For beginners like us, their instructional video was helpful, and it was comforting to see the lifeguards on duty in case the waves became rough. We were celebrating a 35th anniversary and were treated royally at Chops, with excellent food and service. We got the 3 specialty restaurant meal offer, and did enjoy sampling the other venues. Izumi had wonderful sushi and a nice table "hot rock" cooking experience. Giovanni's was great classic Italian food and service. There is no doubt in our minds that we will cruise with RC again and we eagerly look forward to that day . I would recommend this ship and cruise to anyone for great service and opportunities for both R&R as well as interactive engagement, as desired. Read Less

The surrounding were warm, tenderness, hospitalities, the food was great. The room service, the singers, the host. I would. I love to be in customer service, one day I think I might want to work with this company. "Royal Caribbean" in the future. This five days cruise was a very good experience. Would I do it again? Of course with recommendations to other who haven't have any cruise experience, this is a good opportunity for me to explore my words of gratitude's to persons so they themselves might one day be on the Royal Caribbean someday with there families and friends.

We stayed in the junior suite, a great upgrade if you can afford it. DO NOT BUY THE INTERNET PACKAGE! I paid quite a bit and was unable to stay on for more than 2 minutes at a time. Very frustrated, I would have like to had a refund but told they do not do this. However the shows were fantastic, food was great and service was above and beyond from the wait staff. We really enjoyed the comedians on three nights, they had family friendly shows and a adult late evening show also. The main dinning room is great if you do not want to spend extra cash in the other restaurants. We also enjoyed the farewell show with the singers and dancers. They have a great staff that have quite the resume's from other shows they have worked on. Everyone is very friendly and the make you genuinely feel welcome aboard! Read Less

This was our first cruise, our honeymoon. We picked it based on the date and convenient port (Baltimore is 2 hours away from our home) and we were so so pleased with the whole experience. The ship (we learned) is a smaller ship and so we had lots of encounters with the same staff and guests. Waiters and other staff learned our names quickly, we felt so welcome. The ship was beautiful, easy to navigate, comfortable. Food! wow how delicious. The buffet, room service, specialty dining, all left nothing to be desired. The best variety was at the Windjammer (buffet) but the great service at the main dining room made that an experience you don't want to miss. We didn't attend a lot of events or activities, we where more interested in lawn chairs by the pool, etc, but we did catch quite a few musical acts, all enjoyable. And the belly flop competition was good fun to watch. Bermuda is great. We only went ashore the first afternoon but what we saw made us want to go back and spend more time. Read Less

We have never cruised or visited the New England/Canadian area and thought we would try a cruise going North for a change. Although it was a little cooler than we expected, even if you don't get off the ship there is still plenty to do while on the ship when docked. Grandeur of the Seas is so perfect for us as we live in Maryland and the ship is out of Baltimore. How much more convenient is that? No airfare! You are waited on hand and foot, and if you don't see what you want, the staff will do their very best to find it for you. Entertainment is top notch! Food in the dining room is excellent and so was our waiter and assistant waiter. It is so much fun talking with them, finding out where they are from, how long they have been on the ship,etc. Some of the staff are actually married and their spouse is actually on the ship as well. There were 59 different nationalities of the staff alone on the ship. Royal Caribbean is highly recommended in our book! Read Less

The Ports of Call plus the fact the pier was only 40 minutes from our home. All in all it was a great cruise. Food was excellent and the Dining Staff was one of the best we have had to date. Only thing was there were a couple of Ports of call that were too long and did not have enough time to see the city. Boston and Portland come to mind the most. Stateroom was clean and the attendant paid attention to details and was very friendly. Entertainment was fantastic, the best we have seen to date. Activities were plentiful and fun. The Cruise Director and the Activities Director were the best to date and we have been on at least 9 Royal Caribbean Members. We had a 2 person table and there were another 3 table similar to ours and we became instant friends and had a great time. We took a picture as a group with our wait staff and were sorry to leave them. In fact we are going to miss them very much. Read Less

We chose this Grandeur of the Seas ship and New England & Canada cruise because we wanted a smaller ship and a friendly ship. We read that the staff were very friendly and the personal service of the staff had extremely high ratings. Yes, we wanted to eat fresh caught cold water Lobster. We had fresh caught cold water Lobster at a Bar Harbor restaurant on the water. It was good. But the Lobster served on the Grandeur of the Seas was far better. Our Cabin was a Grand Suite 8512 with 340 sq feet plus a large balcony. Head Waiter Dan in the main dining room exceeded all expectations of professionalism and has risen far beyond any other Head Waiter that I have ever met. He provided service as if he read my mind. I have observed him giving direction and guidance to his waiters and I know he used just the right touch with them. I have been on nine Royal Caribbean cruises and Dan is head and shoulders above all others. I was also at the Captains Table and Dan and his team serves the Captain and us. Dan’s performance ensured service to the Captain and us was done to perfection to the smallest detail. The only negative was the time in the ports of Saint John and Halifax was too short only 6 hours. Sincerely, Walter J Okon Read Less

This was only our second cruise on the Pride and really love the ship and crew. We live in Maryland and have done 5 other cruises out of Florida but have the Pride booked for next year to Bermuda. First time in Half Moon Cay and loved it. Smooth sailing all thee way down and back. The crew was fantastic both time on the ship. The thing about the Pride is there seems to be a lot of first time cruisers, blue and red S&S cards, and everyone seems to have a great time. We met so many nice people and saw from our last time on the ship. Embarkment and debarkment in Baltimore are fantastic. So easy parking, getting through check-in, and getting on the ship, couldn't ask for anything easier. Our cruise director, Saffie, was great in all ways. We are booked on the Conquest for October 2017 and really looking forward to our return to the Pride next year. On that cruise there will be 8 in our party Read Less

We decided to take this cruise because we had never been to Bermuda. We had calm waters to Bermuda and Nassau. The days at sea were relaxing. Other cruises we tried to do too many things on shore. This time we took only one excursion at each port and enjoyed it more. Our Junior Suite was very nice. It had a really nice balcony. The bathroom was nice compared to what I heard people had on the lower decks. I wish the refrigerators would cool drinks down more than they do. The dining services were excellent. The wait staff made sure we had enough to eat. The menu's were varied so we didn't need to eat the same thing every night. The headliner shows were OK but not excellent. The show dancers were good but seemed to do the same routine each time they performed. The other cruises we had been on had better sales from the ship shops. There was not a lot of variety to choose from. Read Less

We chose Royal Caribbean because we had a great experience when we went 15 years ago. The experience was just the same. We noticed the dedication of all the staff was exceptional. The maintenance both on the outside of the ship as well as the inside is constant. You provide such a wide variety of activities there is just no way you can do it all. The variety & quality of food is superb! You have wonderful customer service throughout all departments! It was a very enjoyable time. We wish that we could do this more often! We went on this cruise to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. Our honeymoon started out in Bermuda. We had returned for our 20th but not by cruise. This time we visited it by a cruise. We went back to the Princess Hamilton and it brought back so many wonderful memories of our times spent there! Our overall experience was GREAT! Read Less

The maiden voyage of the brand new Constellation was outstanding. This was our 7th cruise with American Cruise Lines and they surpassed our expectations again. We booked our 8th cruise in Alaska for next summer. The food was very good - a lot of crab since it was the Chesapeake Bay. Didn't like the beef one evening, but the rest of the time the meals were presented nicely and delicious. Good to see Chef Tom again and Jonathan. Servers in the dining room anticipated our needs. Saw Drew and Kyle, which was nice too. We love how they know our names when we arrive to the boat. The decorations were very nice. The older ships in the fleet should be renovated to look like this. The tours were nice, especially Annapolis. Cambridge was lacking, but we enjoyed the schooner tour. Oxford was lovely, St. Michael's was beautiful. Wish that they would arrange a tour to the ship yard. Great time and we are looking forward to being back soon. Read Less

The service was excellent, anything you wanted or needed was provided. The food it wonderful and plentiful. Whatever you are hungry for it is there. You can eat any time of the day and as much as you wish to eat. Ice cream machine on the pool deck tall day. A café is on the pool deck to just pick up your food and sit and relax by the pool to eat it. The Windjammer is where we ate our meals. It is a buffet for every meal. The staff is outstanding and the restaurant is very clean and organized. The entertainment is wonderful and they have a great variety of shows. The entertainers are some of the best in the business. They have music all over the ship in different areas at all times. There is activities to suit everyone. Lots of places to sit and relax and a Starbucks to enjoy some great coffee.

We were meeting friends that we've cruised with on Royal Caribbean several times before. The ports of call were perfect for all of us, each basically having their own idea of itinerary when in port. The RC staff ensured that checking in for the cruise went smoothly and efficiently as did the procedure for leaving the ship when the cruise was over. Baggage was delivered timely on both ends. Overall the staff was excellent, very friendly and helpful when needed. The entertainment was first class. I particularly liked the group, ReVoiced and was very pleased when they did an encore performance on our last night at sea. The tribute to our veterans and men and women of service to our country and communities was especially moving. My husband and I are cruising Alaska in August on the Explorer of the Seas. We cruised the Caribbean on that ship several years ago and are looking forward to cruising with her again. Five Stars Royal Caribbean!!! Read Less

We liked the itinerary and it is an easy drive from our home, The Grandeur is a very nice, clean ship and the crew is amazing.. We have sailed 5 times on this ship, with another trip planned in a few months. The port of Baltimore is one of the most efficient ports that we have sailed from and we have been on over 30 cruises, all over the world.. We usually book a Junior Suite because it gives us more storage space and also the room is larger. We love the veranda and spend a lot of time there.The quality of the food and the choices were great in the Main Dinning Room for dinner. We always went to the Windjammer for an excellent breakfast, and lunch was usually a healthy salad or sandwich from the solarium. My only issue on this cruise was that all the chairs and tables in the Solarium were reserved by 8AM and no one used them until later in the day. With that being the only negative, it was a wonderful cruise! Read Less

Our 9th cruise on the Grandeur - and the best one yet! Embarkation in the Port of Baltimore couldn't be any better! Less than 30 minutes from the time we entered the port parking until we were on the ship! Disembarkation was even better! 15 minutes from leaving our cabin to getting in our car! The ship is showing it's age (mostly through cabin furnishings) - but she still offers a great experience! We had the most superb wait staff in the MDR and the best cabin steward! Those two sets of folks helped make our cruise experience perfect on a daily basis. We met friends that we made on the same cruise a year ago - what a blast! It felt like "old-home week"! St. Maarten was our favorite port on this 11 day cruise. Love the beach (easy access using a water taxi). Love the $25 for 2 lounge chairs/an umbrella, and 5 drinks!

The ship only had six children on board which was nice in a way, however there were two thousand customers and only a hand full of people under the age of 50. The ship was clean and the room steward, waiter and assistant waiter were outstanding. The room attendant, Ricardo always kept our ice bucket filled and the room was always kept clean. The previous cruise we were on, Royal Caribbean's Freedom ship was a horrible room attendant. Never any ice, not friendly and the room was not up to par. The excursions were decent and the price was cheaper then Caribbean ports. The Arcadia National forest tour, Kennebunkport and Boston's boat and bus tour were also good. However there was not a lot of time in Boston to see much, although we were in port for 11 hours. The port of Boston is far away from the actual city, so a bus is provided which you would pay extra for, $20 round trip per person. Not walking distance like the other ports on the cruise. We chose my time dining because we don't like to be on a schedule for diner. We always had a table, which was usually the same all the time, and the same wait staff, The food was good but one night it was ok. Other then that, very happy with the choice and tastes of the meals provided. I highly recommend this cruise, especially late October, which we went and November to see the fall foliage. Absolutely beautiful. I will be returning on the cruise, however will be spending extra days in Boston to see everything. Perhaps take the cruise ship out of Boston to start. Loved everything about it, especially the crew. Read Less

We sailed during Hurricane Matthew and this may have been the best cruise we were ever on. Our Captain changed our itinerary and instead of Eastern Caribbean, our plans were to go to Canada....GREAT!! However, once we got to NYC, we were not able to go to Canada since other cruise ships were headed that way so there was no room for us at the port. Not a problem, we got to tour NYC and had a great time! The cruise line made up for the issues we had by giving EVERYONE on board $250 spending money and also 50% of of a future cruise. Our cabin was also upgraded to a balcony so we had no complaints at all. Some people were upset and complaining saying that they were going to sue their travel agent---hmmmm...really folks! The Captain is trying to keep us safe. The food was great and so was the service. Each staff member was friendly no matter if it was 2am or 2pm. Guy's burgers were delicious and juicy--very tasty. Much better from when we tried them on our 2014 cruise. My only complaint was that I wished they had more comedy shows while on board. There 4 nights where there was no comedy show and I missed that. The pool side movie theatre was fun and cozy. There were kids playing in the pool behind us so it made it difficult to hear the movie but no biggie. Some of the passengers were rude to the staff and I don't like that! When ordering an omelette or pizza, some passengers were very demanding and hot-tempered with the staff and I don't quite understand that. The staff was great, no need to be nasty to them! Other then that, we had a ball!!! We will be back again. It would be nice is there was a cruise to Boston and Canada from the Baltimore port. Read Less

We had a great time on our 25th anniversary cruise. We had a balcony stateroom on the 4th deck aft starboard side - very convenient for getting to the 2nd deck where all of the action was. This cruise's schedule was disrupted by Tropical Storm Karl - but Carnival did a good job of keeping us up to date on the changes. Things we really enjoyed: Alchemy Bar - we first saw this on our last cruise and enjoyed it there - and also loved it on the Pride. Very creative martinis and great bartenders. It was popular almost every time we passed it - partly because it is right next to the dining room entrance so people go for a before dinner drink. Chef's Table - this is the first time we have done this and we really enjoyed it. Wonderful food and a great atmosphere with only 12 people. Wine and champagne are included with the dinner. It is pricey at $75 per person but we thought it was worth it. Most of the others that were doing it had done it several times before. Steakhouse - We did this the first night and really enjoyed it as usual. So much food but it is wonderful. If you go the first night of the cruise, it is a free bottle of cheap wine or half price of any wine they have. Trivia Games - we love these, lots of fun as always. Bermuda was nice - though the weather was rainy. We did an all day tour with a non-Carnival supplier - it was very nice and took us all over the island. It was called Hidden Gems of Bermuda. The area around the King's Wharf had quite a bit of shopping as well as a small beach - so if you didn't want to go far that was nice. Overall we had a great time and would highly recommend this cruise. Read Less
