Grandeur of the Seas/Royal Caribbean

We selected Royal Carribean for our annual family vacation. We travelled with approximately 30 members. We were truly disappointed by the appearance of the vessel. The strong "rocking " motion of the ship made ...

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 ...
