Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2012
Cabin: Large Ocean View Stateroom

We chose to cruise on the Grandeur for the second time, not because we found it brilliant the first time, but because of the itinerary and bargain price! We booked last minute "cruise only" and arranged our own transport and transfers. We used Ryanair from Stansted to Treviso and arrived quite early on day one. We were pleased that boarding had commenced, but were a bit miffed that we were steered away from the priority boarding "lanes" as we were Emerald Crown & Anchor members. Eventually we were allowed priority and got aboard reasonably quickly.

We had a midship port side outside cabin which was spacious enough for two and well maintained by our cabin attendant. The bed was comfortable, the flat screen TV a bonus and there was plenty of storage space.

We were on the first sitting on a friendly table of eight in the Great Gatsby restaurant. The waiter and assistant waiter were excellent, the food was pretty good, although the choices had been somewhat restricted. No lobster or baked alaska etc.

Cabin Review

Large Ocean View Stateroom

Cabin F

No complaints except for badly flushing toilet. Plenty of storage space, no fridge, fair shower room and comfortable bed. Near to Centrum but reasonably quiet after midnight.

Port Reviews

Venice

We love it!

Kotor

Great scenery on the way to Kotor, a challenging climb to either the church, about half way, or the fortress. Worth doing for the magnificent views.

Mykonos

Don't miss the Pelican, little Venice, the warren of mazey streets and the Windmills!

Santorini

Try taking the cable car up to the top and walking down!

Bodrum

A pleasant surprise - not so hard as the pestering at Kusadasi. A nearby beach of a fair standard and a little bit of history in the old town.

Split

New and old blend perfectly. Views from the Clocktower were great. We enjoyed a stroll to the nearby beach and a coffee at a local bar - my how those locals chatter!
