My best girlfriend and I went on the cruise to celebrate the end of breast cancer treatment and the joy of our friendship. We have been on Grandeur in the past as it is a breeze leaving from Baltimore & we both appreciate not having to fly the friendly skies. My friend really wanted to see Perfect Day in Coco Cay. Embarkation was so simple. There was a person outside terminal asking health questions but he did it to a group of people, so it took very little time. We were on the ship within 25 minutes of parking at the port terminal. The ship is old but she was sparkling. IT was obvious that there was extra sanitation happening each and every day. The most wonderful part of Grandeur is her crew and staff. They are the best in the fleet if not in the entire cruise industry. Our cabin was small but had plenty of storage space. Space under beds was adequate to put our big suitcases. Stateroom attendant Randy was thorough, attentive and truly a master at towel animals. Only thing we disliked (mild word) was that now in the shower is dispenser of 2in1 body wash-shampoo. Just the idea is yucky...never have I washed my hair with body wash or vice versa. The Main dining room was excellent at dinner...food was very good, service was excellent. Waiter, Sherwin, Assistant John and Head Waiter Rana were some of the best we have had on our 40+ cruises. The only downside was a the table next to us where a man wore an obscene tee shirt to dinner with his little children. Between his tee shirt and foul mouth dinner was uncomfortable at times. Wish that Royal Caribbean would strictly adhere to their dining room dress code. Main dining room for breakfast was very good...excellent French toast. On sea days the dining room was open...best bet there was the salad and pasta station. Windjammer buffet was usually crowded. Saw too many passengers touching food and returning it. We only ate there 2X. The Park Café in the Solarium had good selection at breakfast and lunch. The roast beef on Kimmelwick roll is delicious. The service there was excellent especially ALLAN. Could always find cookies at the Park Café too. We dined both at Giovanni's and Chops Grill and both meals were worth the extra cost. Service again excellent. We would suggest that at Giovanni's you ask that all the courses come separately...if not pasta and entrée served together. The Headliners this cruise were all very good. The comedians so funny and an impressionist that had one heck of a good show. Another evening the headliners was the piano player from the Schooner Bar Henry Rios..another good show. The production shows left a lot to be desired this cruise. The dancers were very good but the singers did not seem to gel together. However I have seen these shows often so I may just be jaded. The Cruise director and staff were present but there was not a lot of energy. However this may have been partly due to the concerns over crowds and coronavirus. We loved that most afternoons there was a movie in the theater. We got to catch up and see some great movies. Ports were all good. Loved Charleston, SC...we just got off, got cab and went to Mass (it was Sunday). Lovely place to walk around CocoCay is beautiful. We did not do any of the $excursions. Just lounged on a chair under an umbrella and read. It was a perfect beach day. The food at CocoCay is delicious and plentiful. Loved the new choices (tacos, sandwiches) We had chilly weather on the way down and back to Baltimore but rest of time weather was great as were the seas. We spent lots of time in Solarium...pool was so warm! Do wish that again rules were followed pertaining to children. It was perfectly understandable that the kids had swim hours when outside was closed But there were often times when kids were in pool when outside was open. If you have rules, please enforce them. I want to compliment the crew for keeping the ship sanitized. There was always someone wiping down the railings, tables in Solarium were wiped down continually. I was impressed. I love Grandeur and will be so sad when she goes away (March 2021). She is beautiful because of her extraordinary staff and crew. Read Less

Wife and I booked this for our first. Probably our last, just not for us. The ship was nice, the food and service ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! I became seasick w/ somewhat rougher seas and weather the last 2 days. I am still having some land sickness, yes there is such a thing, but hopefully will get over that. We swam with dolphins at Blue Lagoon, another experience checked off our bucket list. Def. Recommend. Our cabin steward, Edison, couldn't have been more attentive, we ended up tipping him extra. Shows were ok, would've like to have seen more comedians and maybe some earlier in the evening. For us, esp. motion sickness prone me, I think we will stick to land and air. Oh, watch out if you check towels off the ship for a shore excursion. When we came back onboard they collected them but didn't scan our seapass. On the final bill there was a charge for $50, $25 a towel. As soon as we walked up to guest services she smiled and said "pool towels?" Had we not questioned, we would have been charged. She did remove it Read Less

We signed up to join my daughter and her family. Noise factor in our room adversely effected our experience. Food in the dining room was tasty, but we rejected some of the cooked dishes because they were served cold. The server took far too long for the courses and was a 1 1/2 hour experience. After we complained they got it down to 1 hour. The trivia sessions were conducted by some individuals who could not pronounce English words and it was nerve racking dealing with them. The song and dance entertainment was average, the band was above average. The drink servers (with the exception of Deborah in the Schooner Lounge seemed to take far too long to get the drinks, but were friendly and helpful. Our cabin steward was exceptional and was always present to help us by opening our door or assisting us with other tasks. I would rate the food and the service in the buffet as above average. The excursion to Pearl Island in Nassau was a waste of time and money. We left the island early. High drink costs and run down equipment. The included lunch of fish, rice and chicken was very tasty.
