  3. Grandeur of the Seas
We have taken this cruise for many years. We live less than 30 minutes from the cruise port so not having to worry about plane flights over the holiday/winter time is a tremendous plus. We have done it with the same group of friends and are already booked for next year. That said, the staff is excellent, but most other aspects of this ship are mediocre. Very little to do on sea days and more than half of the cruise is sea days. The cruise is geared to families sailing with children and people celebrating Christmas. It works for them probably, but not for people without children or for people who do not celebrate Christmas. Buffet in Windjammer is weak. New Years Eve celebration is very disappointing. Continuous attempts to sell specialty restaurants. No surprise that this ship is being sold!! We have a great time in spite of the ship and the ports. We get some warm weather in the winter and spend time with friends. That is why we go.

Convenient way to spend New Years Eve with friends
