|

This was our 7th cruise (Previously - 5X on Carnival Pride, 1X on Royal's Anthem). Were concerned after reading reviews and comments about this "small ship" that caters to "old people". At 51 & 56, my husband and ...

An easy escape from winter.

Coming from CT and not wanting to fly, we chose Grandeur and Baltimore. We have little interest in RCI’s monsters from Bayonne, and NCL’s product is simply unacceptable on many levels. It is too bad HAL and ...

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Despite this ship being "refurbished" it is severely outdated!!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 ...

Great Itinerary, not so great ship.

We chose this cruise for two reasons - to get out of the cold for 13 days and we did not have to fly to get to the port. Embarkation and disembarkation were a breeze; no issues whatsoever. We are frequent cruisers ...

Grand Old Lady of the Seas

We joined the Grandeur of the Seas in Baltimore following a 4 day stay in New York and, after the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple, it is the best decision we made. New York was great, it was our first visit, ...

First Time on Grandeur

We chose this cruise as a relaxing winter get away, and that's exactly what it was. The size of the ship was perfect. It wasn't too big, but big enough to offer enough to do. I thought the entertainment was very ...

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 ...

We booked this cruise (OK - I booked this cruise) after watching too much beachfront bargain hunt and seeing a piece on St. Croix. Our daughter lives 15 min from the port, so we thought it would be an easy to/from. ...
