  3. Grandeur of the Seas
We wanted to escape winter for a little while and a southern Caribbean cruise seemed like a great idea. We had never been on a cruise and were nervous about starting with a 12-night cruise. We didn't have any trouble with being sea sick and were able to enjoy the cruise enormously. We will definitely cruise with Royal Caribbean again. The ship was Grandeur of the Seas and it was not the biggest, but we didn't feel that we lacked anything. In fact, the wait staff and entertainment were fantastic. I don't know how we are going to be able to go back to our lives without live entertainment every night and staff to take care of our every need. I guess we need to hit the lotto. We stopped in St Thomas, Antigua, St Lucia, St Kitts, and St. Maarten. Some of the islands were demolished by the hurricanes this year but seem to be working hard to get the tourism going again. We could see the damage in several areas from the hurricanes, but the people were friendly, the shops were bustling, clean, and recently remodeled. Some were still in the process of being restored. We were happy to go to these ports and contribute to the local economies. We did SNUBA on St Lucia. We snorkeled in St. John, Antigua. We toured shops and museums in St Thomas. We took a train tour of St Kitts which I would do again. We went on our own and rode a wave runner in St Maarten. St Maarten seemed to be the hardest hit and we were one of the first ships to return to the island. Some of the shore excursions were canceled. But there were bars, restaurants, and shops that were open. There was horseback riding there as well. I would definitely go back to any one of these destinations and encourage anyone thinking of going to go.

Attentive happy staff made everything fun.

Cabin Review

Cabin 2070
Our stateroom attendant kept the bed made and the room tidy. He also provided an array of artistic creations that we made from nothing but towels. We didn't go on the cruise for these creations, but it was a nice extra that we would never have thought of on our own.
