  3. Grandeur of the Seas
We desired a cruise out of our local port, Baltimore, for convenience. We did this same itinerary out of Cape Liberty on a different boat in 2010. We were able to get on the boat in the late morning, providing an extra day of onboard fun. We left on time. Ship was clean and crew as friendly as last time. Captain did an exquisite job of dodging three hurricanes and we ended up with beautiful weather on every day. Shout out to our cabin steward; cabin was well kept and he was extremely responsive. Food was a C+ -- Windjammer lacked variety and main dining room was literally serving the exact same menus as two years ago. Entertainment was a B+, with a pop cover band, enrichment talks, and educational art auctions. Only complaint was the dining staff. There was a bit of a language barrier and they interrupted our table conversations too often. A smaller ship, like Grandeur, has its pros and cons. We met dozens of people that we kept meeting up with throughout the cruise. That never happened on the larger ships. We would definitely sail on Grandeur again, but wish they offered more itineraries out of Baltimore.

Cabin Review

Interior
Cabin 1V 8517
We chose an interior cabin based on price and past history. We like it dark and quiet and this trip did not disappoint. Small, yes, but very livable for a week. Also, very smooth in rough seas.
