  3. Grandeur of the Seas
We normally cruise from Baltimore. This was our seventh time on the Grandeur starting back in 2005. The age of the ship is starting to show. The staff and crew do their best with what they have but the newer ships are starting to take over the convenience of a close port. The dinning room staff was the best part of the trip. We had great service every night from Leah and Edith for my Time Dining. The food itself was just OK and not the fault of the wait staff. We have been to all the ports several times and would love to see a change in itinerary from Baltimore. We have done a westerner Caribbean from Baltimore before and would like to see this offered again. We were in cabin 7150 again. This is a corner JS with a large balcony. We pay the extra for this room because we enjoy the balcony space. The balcony was dirty all cruise. Our room attendant tried to clean it but did not have the right resources available. In the past, the aft balconies were cleaned by the ships crew during the cruise. On this cruise, they were not available to clean the balconies. This should be done every cruise. Overall the cruise was just average based mainly on the age of the ship and the same ports year after year. Lets hope that the dry dock in April will bring improvements.

Cabin Review

Cabin 7150
This was our third time in this room. We choose this room based on the size and location of the balcony. Size of the room is great and comes with a walk in closet and extra large balcony. Interior decorations need to be updated. T
