Royal Suite Great! Baltimore & Bermuda Great! Cruise Not So Much.

We booked the Royal Suite 8500 and two additional staterooms - 4054 (oceanview) & 8513 (interior.) The Royal Suite was great and was a terrific value. The fact that this 5 night cruise left and returned to ...

Great Food/Excellent Crew BUT Too many "surprises"

I picked this cruise because my parents have cruised with Royal MANY times and always gush about how good it was and how relaxed they felt . HOWEVER, I would not use relaxing to describe our experience. We got an ...

Good Itinerary, on a terrible ship

This is our 4th cruise with Royal and we've sailed on Grandeur's sister ship Rhapsody so we thought we knew what we were getting into. Overall we'll avoid any cruise with Grandeur in the future, and this has ...

We chose the 9 Day out of Baltimore on the Royal Caribbean Grandeur of the Seas largely because it fit perfectly in my kids' Spring Break. I understand that the Grandeur is one of RC's smaller ships, but it really ...

We chose to sail with Royal Caribbean because it was winter, out of Baltimore and a good price. Boarding was smooth. Our cabin was adequate but the layout put the bed in front of the window and restricted our ...
