  3. Grandeur of the Seas
We were on the Grandeur in 2017 and enjoyed it with the wonderful Sherry as activities manager. Zumba and dancing in centrum were great. This time lack of activities was very evident. And when scheduled it was usually late starting or short in duration. Sometimes we waited and then activities manager would show up and say my bad I forgot to schedule staff. Very low standards. Not professional. The good stuff now. Cruise director tried hard and was very nice. Comedians were good. Uptown show was excellent. Band with steel drum great. The other band excellent. MDR was outstanding. Caesar salad was excellent but lacking other salad choices was frustrating. Centrum was the spot for much of night time activities. Crowd was mostly elderly and many with walkers canes and scooters. Lots of vacant space on dance floor. Ship is old and smelly. Walking down lower deck hallway you would hold your breath. Fellow passengers were nice and friendly. Many repeated cruisers. If you’re healthy and young and looking for activities this is not the place to be. You’re going to be bored. We were often full of energy and had nothing to do. October on Visions transatlantic we could not take the stairs as our legs were worn out from activities. This cruise we took the stairs for the workout. RCL needs to step up in activities or were going back on Princess for Zumba and fun. Grandeur is great for food and service but lacking activities is a shame.

Great food and services- Activities not so much!
