We loved the ports! But the wait staff and crew were amazing. Food was excellent! Greeeeaaaat foood Omg! Service was definitely an A+. I would recommend these ports and this trip. Also disembarkation was so easy and smooth. My dad is handicapped and we had no issues at the ports except one which was bar harbor, because there were tenders. But a great trip overall. My family and i enjoyed thoroughly! The kids enjoyed also. We took a 1 and 2 year old. I had my concerns about safety originally because they are so active. However, that proved to be unnecessary worry as there were no hiccups. As soon as we boarded, my mind was immediately at ease. Kids enjoyed their time, in and out of the pool also. Lifeguards always in duty. I could be worry free. Great food! Great service! Great staff! Great trip! Loved and enjoyed soooo much! Read Less

The grand mother recommended the cruise with Royal Caribbean. The good food was great the staff where friendly the room attendant was great the waiter in the dinning room was great. The bad 2 broken hot tubs, Broken ice cream machine, unwashed windows, and rust abounding on the exterior of the ship. Now the Ugly I dropped my children off at the teen center on the ship for a "in room scavenger hunt" as described in the teen flyer. I come to find out it was a all over the ship scavenger hunt how easy at 10 pm. at night would it be for teen to be abducted and raped and thrown overboard? Brought the issue to guest services it was never addressed!!!!!!! More ugly RC claimed a port of call at coco cay which I hear from others frequently is cancelled so they flat out lied and offered no other port of call. Last of the ugly Shore excursions were great but very short not a good value. Read Less

Love the friendliness of the crew, fantastic Captain with a great sense of humor! Itinerary was great. I did a B2B Canada/New England followed by Bermuda. When you go to the Centrum bar look up Madagascar, best bar tender in the fleet. Food was mainly good, some meals could be improved upon. Deck 4 is the best deck in my opinion, right off the Centrum, close to dining room and embarkation/debarkation elevators etc. I had an interior cabin as ship was booked, NEVER AGAIN, they are small and very dry. My eyes are still recovering from the dryness as is my skin! You will love Captain Andre, he has his 2 little ones with him and 1 made an announcement for us to spend lots of money so her Dad could make more money to buy her and her little brother presents, lol. Love his personality’s!!! I was surprised as to how many children were onboard as school is in session, so it would be a great cruise for families with kids. Read Less

Chose this cruise for destination and size of ship.(small). Bermuda is gorgeous. Took the Amtrak from Lynchburg to Baltimore. Recommend Business Class on train. We sat at a table in facing seats and had lots of conversation on the train. Train has internet, outlets, comfortable seats and good food. Stayed overnight at Embassy Suites by Hilton near airport. Suite and hotel were excellent. Complimentary cocktails, snacks and breakfast. Great food from room service. Lovely Hotel, very reasonable prices. Smooth shuttle transfer from train station at airport to hotel by friendly driver. Taxi to cruise port next morning. Flawless check-in with Royal Caribbean and quick boarding of ship. Mini suite accommodations were spacious and spotless. Got connecting suites (8076 and 8078) at rear of ship. Weather was wild due to back to back hurricanes. For some reason, motion in rear of ship was much less than front (Windjammer), so took food back to room and ate together there several times. (One member of our party of three was affected by rough seas). We had excellent food on ship. Deluxe drink package is a good value and includes cocktails up to 12 dollars and starbucks coffee, bottled water, fresh juice and all sodas. Food is lighter fare these days and there were tons of fresh vegetables, Indian food, American food, fresh baked bread and loads of fresh fruit. Tasty late night snacks are available from the Park Cafe as buffet closes at nine PM. Room service available 24 hours for 7.95. Coffee maker and Teapot in suites. Only one suite had bottle of champagne. The ship is easy to move around on and lounges are lovely. Viking Crown was underutilized by passengers on this trip and was a comforting quiet place with beautiful views for nighttime cocktails and conversation. Peruvian bartender was a doll. Music and entertainment were wonderful. I love this little ship. My only complaint is about the passengers who willingly boarded a ship with back to back hurricanes and then complained to the staff about the sea conditions. (duh). The Captain did an outstanding job of altering the route and speed to cope with what mother nature created. We actually overheard people asking for refunds or discounts due to the weather. We had a ball anyway and highly recommend this cruise to heavenly Bermuda on this sweet little ship. We toured Bermuda on our own and experienced taxi drivers eager to tell us about their island. The beaches are wild, volcanic, turquoise and pink and gorgeous. Very unique and beautiful destination. Ferries and buses are great. Read Less

We chose this cruise because it sailed out of Baltimore,MD and the destination was Bermuda. Upon arriving in Baltimore,MD at the port we were greeted with excellent service and smiles. The ship was awesome. It was impeccably clean and well staffed. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Our luggage was delivered promptly to our stateroom before we sailed. Our oceanview cabin 2064 was excellent. It was very clean, the bed was firm. There was plenty of storage space available in the closet, the drawers and in the bathroom. The dining on the ship was also very good.The Windjammer buffet offered the usual cruise like food. There was plenty of variety to choose from. The food was very fresh. Dining in the Great Gatsby dining room was great! The food was definitely gourmet. It was well prepared and presented. The dining room staff was very attentive. Greeted you with smiles throughout dinner. They made sure that you enjoyed your meal.The ship had plenty activities to choose from. You can relax at the sun deck, shop, or engage in the activities that were offered. We did not travel with children. I can't comment about the children's activities or services because we didn't use them. The age group on the ship varied from 25-70. Definitely an adult like cruise. The port at Bermuda Heritage Wharf was very nice and clean. It offers shopping and snorkel beach for those who did not want to venture out to Horshoe Bay upon arrival. Definitely do the excursion to Horseshoe Bay. It is absolutely beautiful. We were docked for two days. We chose to relax, however there are plenty of tours offered. It was a FANTASTIC cruise. Can't wait to sail again. Read Less

This was my second cruise with Royal Caribbean, but my first to Bermuda. The biggest criticism I had with the trip was the fact that we effectively only spent 24 hours in Bermuda with an arrival at 3PM the first day and a departure at 2:30PM the second day. There is a lot to see and do on the island, but the time limited your activities immensely. This is my second trip on Grandeur with Captain Thor, and I have to say that as was the case last time, the service was excellent. The cabin attendants are very accommodating while the dining staff is always on point. The bar staff does alright for how busy they are, but like all bars it can be easy to fall through the cracks if they are very busy. The ship itself is starting to show it's age a bit, not all of the areas of the ship are completely accessible for those who are wheelchair bound, and the cabins themselves are a bit dated and a bit worn. The amenities of the ship however are decent, with two pools (saltwater) and six hot tubs (two reserved specifically for kids, the' rest for adults), outdoor screen, myriad activities, a casino, and a rockwall, but they don't have quite as many features as the latest ships. The Grandeur's class of ship (Voyager) has a tendency to be replaced early, with two of the previous ships in the class/era being sold already so it's unknown if Grandeur will continue to operate into 2018/2019, but because of the clearance under the Key Bridge just outside the port of Baltimore (Grandeur clears it by a mere 20 ft), the choices will either be keep Grandeur, get a new ship of similar size, or skip sailing into the port of Baltimore.

I choose this cruise because it was in my hometown & close to home.. Also my companion was on her first cruise & she does not like flying...The staff was fantastic & went out of there way to take care of any & all problems.. The ship is lacking of needed repairs most of them very simple things like replacing a multitude of burnt out lights in the solarium.. Even though she just came out of Dry-dock it seems what work was done was superficial...Our toilet would not flush properly thru out the entire cruise.. The maintenance crew who were very good with trying to take care of the problem could not fix it... The ship is in need of a serious overhaul from stem to stern...The entertainment was great,food both quality & service were great.. The staff constantly went out of there way to please us.... All in all it was a good cruise but the ship is lacking in repairs,, Read Less

I sailed Grandeur in late August, so this was my second Grandeur experience. The first sailing, to Bermuda, was a terrific break. This cruise was even better. I had an inside cabin, which was clean and functional. The stateroom attendant was respectful and efficient. The ship is not brand new, but is well kept. The crew and hotel staff of this ship are delightful. The MDR food was great and our MDR staff, Pedro, Bradley and Jing were top notch. We requested extra steamed vegetables and some Indian food each night, and they were excellent. Giovanni's Table specialty restaurant was superb. The best of the entertainment included Mudflap McGrew, a very funny comedian; a quartet, the Unexpected Boys who received a standing ovation for a medley from Les Miz; and the debut of Tango Buenos Aires by the ship's entertainers. The latter was one of the best ship productions I have seen. The most outstanding ship excursion was the kayaking and snorkeling excursion on Antigua. It would have been great to have a lecturer on board, and a daily Catholic Mass. Galley tours don't cut it for 'enrichment activities'. Read Less

Third time on this ship ,twice to beautiful Bermuda, great food and Diamond lounge Going back for 4th voyage same ports in August 2017. The staff in the Diamond lounge were very attentive and always ready to greet you. The steakhouse service are tops beautiful steaks and an optional Sunday brunch serving lobster tails shrimp and caviar with champagne included in the price go Chops its well worth it. this cruise is the most relaxing time on the seas and Bermuda is my favorite stop next to St martin. Have been to the Bahamas 10 times ,beautful waters and country but be aware of locals always trying to sell something or a service,beefed up police and military patrols on the island which is needed. paradise island is a sight to see and the home of many mega-yahts take some pics . Coco Cay has a beautful prisine beach and a good barbeque. ENJOY !!! Read Less

This was a family first time cruise with a group of 18. We didn't know what to expect when picking ships so we went with the Grander. When first boarding the ship you could tell that this was a very OLD ship with a lot of use. We had 5 children teenagers who could not find any other children on board to hang out with.The teens club was very old and boarding they were to say to us. They spent most of there time in the indoor pool and just hung out in the hot tubs. This was a cruise with a lot of OLDER people on-board who did not understand manners. When going to get things to eat at the windjammer they would just think that they could just go in front of you because they were older in age. As you can tell this did not go well when we had to correct them on what they were doing. We didn't get to stop in one of are ports because of the weather. Not saying that this was their choice but still could have done something to make up for it. They made a new Cruise Compass for the day to make it more enjoyable. I would say they didn't add anything that really made us stick out and have a fun day. We all just did are own thing that day. Other then that we all just did are own things on this cruise because there was nothing to do for the younger age. Defiantly would not go on this ship again!!! Read Less
