Chose the cruise for the ports, but several were dropped when it changed from 9 to 7 days.
We still had a great time. The crew aboard the Grandeur were awesome. Casino folks were pleasant and treated my son and I courteously. Our room attendant, Iketut was tremendous. The waitstaff at the main dining seating, Stevan & Marko did a great job and the food was enjoyable. The shows we caught were a display of some very talented folks. The Tango Bueno Ares was spectacular. We did not know how they were able to move their legs and feet in so many directions and not injuring themselves or each other. Our cabin was 4510 ,near the front, but we had no issues even during the rough sea days. We ate at Chops, Giavannis & Izumi. Great service and the food was outstanding at each of them. We particularly enjoyed a lunch and a dinner at Izumi. The brunch at Giavanni was great and was followed by a galley tour.
Even with the cruise changes due to the mechanical issue, Royal made the shortened cruise a great one.
Cabin was 2 beds and a couch. We had inflatable matress pads that were added by Iketut under the bottom sheets and made the bed comfortable. Temp was cool and stayed cool (a plus for us) Ice was provided every day. Closet space & drawer space were adequate. Bathroom was fine.
Embark was great. We stayed at the BW+ with parking and shuttle. Walked right to sign-in desk and straight onboard.
