A Very Nice Cruise

We have departed from Baltimore on other occasions and love the ease of their port. Departing from ports such as NY are nowhere near as nice and easy and friendly as the Baltimore Port. We had an 11 ...

Missing some RC things!

We've sailed Grandeur many times and love the ship! However, this time - which was a back to back cruise was lacking. Our waiter forgot us - salad one night, lobster - husband although he ordered it - it never ...

Royal Carribean Grandeur of the Seas/Eastern Carribean March 2016

We were first time cruisers (just my husband and I, in our 50's) and chose the Grandeur of the Seas as a smaller ship so as not to be too overwhelmed and allow us the opportunity to really explore our ship, get to ...

A great trip for a family with older kids

Before we left for our cruise, I looked at reviews on this site about The Grandeur of the Seas and RCI, in general. I worried a bit because many reviews were negative stating that the ship was old, a bit run down, ...

Solo Traveler's Review

A great cruise, despite the fickle weather that put a damper on some of the would-be highlights of the cruise. The space in my inside stateroom was great - granted I was the only one in the cabin, but I needed less ...

Smaller Ship, but Comfortable

We picked this cruise so we cold drive to the port, we had someone in our group that hates to fly. Check in was quick and easy, on and off the ship as well. At first we were really bummed that it was so small ( we ...

A Little Bit of Snow and a Whole Lot of Sunshine

We chose this cruise because we didn't want to drive to Florida. Baltimore is an 8 hour drive for us and with the Canadian dollar sinking, it was going to be expensive for us with hotels and food. We arrived at ...

A nice way to escape the snow on the Grandeur of the Seas!

We embarked on this cruise one day late due to snow storm Jonas that dumped 30 inches of snow and delayed the return of the Grandeur to Baltimore by one day. The check-in process was very slow since so many of the ...

Great Service, Great Food on Grandeur 3/31/15

This was my fifth cruise, but first for my husband and boys, ages 10 & 9. Size of the ship was perfect for the number of passengers. It never felt crowded. Windjammer food was great for a buffet. Lots of variety ...

My husband took me on this cruise to celebrate my birthday. It was all new to us, so we had nothing to compare it to. The ship is great, very clean and shiny, the staff worked constantly to keep it that way. We ...

The "Grandeur" is still grand!

Despite a few cutbacks, I still love the size and ambience of the Grandeur - not too big, not too small. I noticed that there were fewer singers and dancers in the production shows, and this cruise didn't feature ...

Grandeur Still Grand, But RCCL Cutting Too Many Corners

We got on the ship easily but had to wait in a crowd for the lunch in the Windjammer to open. This was not a good first impression, as it would have been better to have us wait where we could sit, back at check-in.. ...
