  3. Grandeur of the Seas
We chose this cruise because of the port stops. This has been our 5th RC cruise and our 44th cruise since December 2011, so we have a lot to compare this to. The entire ship needs upgrading. On 3 different days, there were times when the toilets did not flush. The public bathrooms were not taken care of very well. There were occasional smells of sewer gas in our bathroom and other places around the ship. Our cabin steward was a ghost; we saw him for the first time on day 8. There was a fire alert one evening where most crew reported to their stations. Thankfully it was just smoke from a transformer and we did not need to be evacuated. Breakfast in the Windjammer was very disappointing. Lunch and dinner ranged from fair to good, with adequate choices. The main pool was closed on 2 separate occasions due to "accidents" and it needed to be drained and cleaned. During these times, screaming, jumping, unsupervised children were allowed in the adult only pool. The crew (with the exception of our cabin steward ) were very friendly and helpful. The entertainment was excellent; diverse, and very professional and entertaining. Overall, we give this cruise a 5 on a scale of 1-10.
