Picked this cruise because of the Itinerary. It would have been nice if we hadn't missed the tender stop at Coco Cay ( I later found out they this ship missed thie stop more times than it makes it. I spoke to one lady at lunch that said this was her 5th cruise on the Grandeur and it had never stopped at Coco Cay!) Also, we booked an excursion on a glass bottom boat but it was cancelled. We rushed in the morning to make it to the pier to make the departure time only to find out it was cancelled. If they had told us this in advanced we could have enjoyed our breakfast and not been in a rush. Turns out they let a message on our cabin phone but the "Message" light was "out of order". The Good! The food and service in the main dining room was excellent. Too bad I can not say the same for the ho-hum Windjammer. Entertainment by the comedian and impersonator was very good, the rest seemed like high school presentations. Loved the port in Baltimore, easy on and off boat! Cabin Stewart was fast, friendly and courteous! One of the best we have ever had! Our initial "Cruise Director" Tornado was effervescent! She was able to motivate crowd to participate every day! The Bad: RCL does not enforce any of their rules? Dress code not enforced in the Dining Room, Kids allowed in the Adults Only Pool and Hot Tubs. Smoking all over the place. Elevators, too few and too small, always a wait to find one with room for two. First ( and probably last) time we sail RCL, already booked next year's cruise back on NCL! I can only afford to cruise once a yer and it should be on a better than "average" line.

Cabin Review

Cabin 7602
Cabin looked tired, mattress was old and very uncomfortable. Toilets stopped flushing several times. Lots of wind noise from the sliding balcony door. Lots of visible rust on balcony. Windows in Cabin (and all over the ship) were very dirty and hard to see out of.
