This was our second cruise on Grandeur so we knew going in that its an older smaller ship that isnt as fresh and full of activities/ options as the newest ships. With that said, there is a certain charm to the ship and the chances of running into the same guests and staff are very high. This allows people to build rapport and makes for a friendlier cruise.
My wife our friend and I originally booked a JS but were fortunate enough to Royal Up to GS 8512.
This was our first time in a suite and experiencing the benefits. It was a great treat and now we are hooked on staying in a suite.
