This is my fourth cruise this year, my first on Grandeur of the Seas. My others have been on Independence (1) and Freedom (2) of the seas. Grandeur is a smaller class of ship, and that was both a positive and occasionally a negative. Let me summarize first by saying that it was a wonderful cruise with so many wonderful moments.
Don’t laugh, but the soft serve ice cream was self-served, so you could have as much as you want, in either a cone or a bowl. (On my other cruises there was always an attendant doing the serving). There were very few children this cruise, which may account for the self-service.
I always choose an interior room. This one was odd. It was laid out wide rather than deep. The layout included a reading chair stuck in an alcove that prevented the closet door from closing and no cooler. (Not that they work particularly well on Independence and Freedom, but still), The bathroom was fine, although the old style shower with just a flimsy white curtain assured I flooded the bathroom every time I showered. The room was nice and dark for sleeping. The mattress was wonderful But, where as on Independence and Freedom you got two firm and two soft pillows, all there was on Grandeur was four soft pillows (I like a very firm pillow for sleeping).
A must visit for me is the "First Flight" restaurant and Bar that is housed where the original Pan American Airways Ticket Office was located. Other than that, be prepared for lots and lots of over priced tourists shops,
Can't tell you how much more I enjoyed Labadee than Perfect Day at Coco Cay (Independence and Freedom). The natural landscape was stunning, the facility less crowded. Food and Drink was easily loctaed and the local craft market was a wonderful place to browse.
