We kept trying, but now we are done with the Grandeur of the Seas

|

We have cruised several times on the Grandeur of the years, but after this cruise we both decided, this was the last. We will wait for the Enchantment of the Seas and keep our fingers crossed. We like cruising ...

Will NEVER cruise with Royal Caribbean again

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 ...

If ONLY we had known!

We selected this cruise because of it's length (12 nights) and ports of call (islands we had not yet seen in our past cruises). This was our 5th cruise on Royal Caribbean, all of which we loved and made us loyal ...

So disappointed from a family of 5!

Despite this ship being "refurbished" it is severely outdated!! I felt like areas such as the ceiling were not maintained well, many fixtures were tarnished and attention to detail was lacking. All our other cruises ...

All the fun of living in an infomercial

Bottom line up front: This ship is falling apart at the seams, everything stinks (staterooms, bathrooms, common areas, decks and interior spaces). Everything is designed to frustrate you to the point of spending ...

They don't care.

The cabin window was so filthy, we could barely see out, much less take pictures through it. We reported it every day. They squirted salt water over the salt streaks without using soap, which didn't work.At the ...

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 ...

Bad Ship Maintenance = Vacation Cut Short

Chose this cruise based off of price and date of vacation. There was not much to do for young adults. We were unable to go on our shore excursion and they tried to charge us extra for a supplemental excursion. ...

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 ...

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. ...
