First Cruise Review
Our suite was adequate for the 3 of us and the balcony was a nice addition. Even though we were at the back of the ship, there was no engine smell or soot. Everything on the ship was clean and the recent upgrade was stunning. There was no unoward odors as reported by other reviewers. We visited the Palladium theater mos evening and the entertainment was top notch.
We thought the food was very good. The dining room was excellent and the Windjammer buffet, although predictable, had a good selection for all meals. I would recommend that passengers on the Grandeur avail themselves of the upgraded More dining package. The food at Izumi (Asian/sushi), Giovanni's Table (rustic Italian with huge amounts of food) and Chops (steaks) was exceptional.
There were a few negatives. The casino was basically a smoking lounge and uninviting for us non-smokers. The bed could be more comfortable. And there seemed to be an inordinate amount of hawking (drinks, photos, liquor/wine/soda packages, etc). But all in all the positives far outweighed the negatives. We certainly would sail on the Grandeur again Less
Cabin review: JS8086 Junior Suite
Cabin was clean and roomy. Nice balcony (8084 is larger!) No smell inside or out. Good choice!Read All Junior Suite (JS) Reviews >>
