We've previously cruised on Carnival, Princess and Celebrity. Our last two Celebrity cruises spoiled us for any other line, I am afraid to say. We took this cruise because we live 1.5 hours away from Baltimore, ...

Average cruise

Can you really complain when you’re on a cruise to the Bahamas? Well, just a little bit when sailing on Grandeur of the Seas. Embarkation: Due to an outbreak of a virus on the previous sailing (great start I ...

Not the Best but Not the Worst

First of all, this certainly was not our best cruise experience; however some things were in my opinion unavoidable, but RCI still could have done better in their response. To start, prior to the voyage, RCI sent ...

Grandeur cruise was okay

We went on this cruise because we won a "free" cruise from listening to a time share presentation. (Hubby and I have sailed on Carnival before but this was our first time on Royal Caribbean). By the time we upgraded ...

I love cruising, but Grandeur is not my top choice

Last year we decided to plan a family cruise to include extended family. We chose Grandeur because most of our family lives in Maryland and we loved the idea of sailing out of Baltimore. We read lots of reviews on ...

I've never been on a bad Cruise and with that said the Grandeur was just ok..

Ok so let me say again we had a nice time. The GOS shows her age but that's to be expected. The main reason for writing a review is to add a little ballancd. Out of all the reviews I read before 99% had the GOS ...

Know the marketing demographics before you book!

We chose this cruise as it was the spring break of our soon to be graduating daughter (HS), and it is an easy three hour drive to Baltimore. We have always loved the Port of Baltimore for efficiency and ease! We ...

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 ...

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 ...

Baltimore Sailing on the Grandeur

Like many mid-Atlantic cruisers, we booked the Grandeur out of Baltimore because it sailed from Baltimore! For a Thanksgiving holiday cruise, it was also relatively inexpensive, even for our junior suite. We also ...

Great hardware. The loud music and Appleby's cuisine is disappointing

I wanted a cruise close to home not requiring an airplane flight. Ports did not matter. Grandeur is a human scaled ship at 74,000 tons, not too big, not too small. It also has a proper boat deck promenade where one ...

Great cruise for seniors/retirees, not so much for 18-40 year olds

Grandeur is a great ship with great staff but has seemed to tailor its daily activity schedule for the retirees/seniors that frequently travel on this ship. This was my second sailing on Grandeur (last one was a 7 ...
