Grandeur of the Seas Cruise Review by lolapalooza
We booked this cruise for my son's spring break from High School. We sailed with another family who has two girls who are in Elementary School. There was a nice mix of young and old on board and there were a lot of families! We had priority check in so we didn't have to wait long at all during the boarding process. For sail away we met on the top deck and enjoyed the views and music as we set sail at 5PM. We had the early dinner so we all got ready and met in the dining room. We were thrilled to discover that we had a great table right next to the window looking out over the water...perfect! We had a fabulous view of the Skyway Bridge as we sailed under it during dinner! The food each night was very good and there was always a good variety with healthy choices available each night as well! Juvi was our waiter and Jorge was his assistant, they were great! They learned our names and our likes/dislikes quickly. We ate all of our dinners in the formal dining room and ate breakfast and lunch in the Windjammer Buffet. The food there was very good as well and there was a nice selection. We spent our days at the pool and the kids enjoyed taking part in some of the Adventure Ocean activities. The teen activities on the first day were great, but as the trip continued the number of kids showing up was inconsistent so some events were cancelled. We had a great time playing bingo and also in the casino. We went into port in Cozumel for about an hour just to walk the shops. We have been there before and didn't really feel like doing anything else. We got back on the ship and enjoyed the pool as there was hardly anyone on board. We also visited the spa while in port. $149 for a top to toe massage and facial....so relaxing!! We saw all of the shows on board and all were really good. We arrived back in port on Monday morning and we had a check out time of 9:10 so we took our time and had a nice breakfast at the Windjammer before heading down to the Palladium to wait for our color to be called so we could disembark. This also went very smoothly and we were off and on our way home in no time. To be honest I found this cruise so much more relaxing than our 7 day Freedom of the Seas trip because we were not rushing to get off in a port everyday! Thanks Grandeur for a great spring break!!
