The only thing I can say good about our cruise is that my teenage boys room steward, Rouston Rodrigues was Amazing. He not only cleaned my teenage boys room, made them animal towels, but interacted with them and my ...

2 extra days at sea.

This is a very old ship. Worse cruise I have ever been on. They didn't have enough help anywhere. Took a long time in the dining room to get served. This was not the waiters fault, just not enough waiters to go ...

Never again.

This was the worst vacation ever. The rooms are barely big enough to fit 2 even though its supposed to be a 4 person room. Then there was nothing to do!. Maybe I would've had fun if every event wasn't designed to ...

One of the worst two cruises I have ever been on.

We chose this cruise based on the ports of call and that turned out to be the only good thing about our entire trip. Due to allergies we had very few choices for dinner and had to eat the same things over and over. ...

The was a combination of a AAA no fly bus trip and Caribbean cruise.

The ship was named Grandeur of the Seas, and indeed it was. The food, entertainment, crew, atmosphere, the ships interior and exterior architecture and design, and accommodations was most pleasant and enjoyable. ...
