Overall cruise.

I had some trouble getting adjustments made to my final bill in the area of gratuities. Apparently communication was an issue. Ultimately, it was straightened out before I left the ship. The majority of the ...

Smooth sailing, great service, good food

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary having never been to Charleston, SC, Cape Canaveral, or Miami, and the fact that we could drive to the Baltimore terminal. Our cabin was very roomy and clean and our ...

We like this cruise because it's laid back and quiet. Not a lot of kids running around or younger people acting out. It is an older crowd of cruisers ,but sometimes it can be too old.We're in our sixties , but more ...

Ship not what it used to be, entertainment wise.

We chose Grandeur of the Seas based on a previous cruise on it to Bermuda - TOP tier entertainment; not so much this cruise. Staff in the main dining room were absolutely EXCEPTIONAL but the food was typically ...

Great cruise on a smaller and older ship.

Ship was clean and older but it still had enough to keep us busy for the 9 days we were there. Cabin was clean, well equipped and adequate. Dining was very good and staff were very helpful and knowledgable ...

Very Good First Experience

I was not excited about driving into Baltimore Harbor but found the access eased by signage and staff at hand. Parking lot was tricky. More direction could be given when paying the parking fee when entering. ...

We had a nice time on this voyage; no big WOW factor, other than the price we paid. We got a very good deal in my opinion averaging around $60/day per person.,This being a smaller ship though, doesn't really allow ...
