  3. Grandeur of the Seas
My husband and I took our three grown grandchildren on a 9 day New England/Canada on Grandeur of the Seas leaving on July 5, 2018. Positives: Weather was great, Baltimore is an easy port to access and park, our cabin attendant and waiters were wonderful and the food very good. Diamond club and the designated diamond breakfast area were excellent. We did all ports independently...each grandchild was responsible for planning activities at a port and all of us had a wonderful time. We used the Viking Crown lounge on sea days for card games with the grandkids which was always quiet with no problem finding tables and chairs for our games. The ship to be very clean and easy to get around with friendly staff. When a hurricane threatened, the captain switched the order of the ports, even though in Halifax Royal Caribbean had to provide shuttles as the only berth available on such short notice was an industrial one. His actions insured that we were never exposed to rough weather and was much appreciated.Only complaint: one of the three cabins (2514 which is described below) was not satisfactory.

Cabin Review

Ocean View
Cabin 2N 2514
We took family members and reserved 3 cabins: 2520, 2522, and 2514, all ocean-view rooms. Our cabin, 2514, although costing the same, was quite different from the others. We were nearer the ship's bow and the first two nights experienced a lot of crashing and dragging noises coming from below. While the other cabins in our group had two nice-sized rectangular windows, ours had only two small portholes, positioned into the hull so that the only way to get a good look outside was to partially crawl into the cubby-hole where the windows were located. Thank goodness our cabin attendant was great as the room certainly wasn't .
