2nd cruise for my wife and I. Both with RCI. We are in our early 30's Flew from Toronto to New Orleans early Saturday morning. $30 cab ride to the port. Checked our luggage and went to the French Quarter for Lunch. Had reservations at NOLA (Emeril's restaurant) Very Tasty and prices were reasonable. Went to the port terminal around 3pm. We were on the ship within 5 minutes. Very quick and ...

My husband and I booked this cruise to celebrate our 10th anniversary, and the Grandeur of the Seas did not disappoint! We spent two nights in New Orleans prior to the cruise and took in the Jazz Fest on Friday. What a great way to kick off our vacation! On Saturday, a short taxi ride from the Drury Inn & Suites brought us to the port, and check-in was swift; we were in our cabin before 2 p.m.! A ...

Background I am 28 (2 previous cruises) and my DH is 26 (1 previous cruise). All previous cruises were 7 nights on Carnival and this was our first with RCL. I was lucky enough to find a one day sale that got us an amazing rate for the cruise. Neither one of us are big partiers/drinkers. We were both looking forward to a relaxing vacation full of afternoon naps, beachside lounging and generally ...

This was my fifth cruise - third with Royal Caribbean - and after a not-so-wonderful cruise with Sovereign, my faith in RCCL has been restored! Embarkation- Trouble getting the bus transfer. We waited over an hour at the bus stop thing at the airport, in the freezing cold, to catch the bus. However, embarkation itself was very smooth - no wait in lines! Food-The answer is....it depends. Some ...

Since this was about the last sailing out of New Orleans for the Grandeur, I will post info about the ports at the port boards. This was our 8th cruise, 3rd on RCCL. We have also been on Celebrity, Carnival, Holland, and NCL. We have found RCCL is a step or two above Carnival. We were in a midship balcony on the starboard side on deck 7. We have had balcony cabins on the last few cruises and would ...

Where to start. This was my second time to cruise on Grandeur of the Seas, my husband's first and my children's first cruise period. My husband and I have cruised before. Grandeur is just that Grand. She is an older ship showing some wear but scheduled for dry dock in April, 07 which will improve her grandeur! I booked our cruise directly thru Royal Caribbean with absolutely no problems. Prices ...

Background: My husband and I have been on 2 cruises before. One on the Grand Princess and one on the Carnival Victory. We enjoyed both cruises before so our expectations were high. This was our first cruise taking the children. Hotel: Stayed the night before at the Holiday Inn Westbank. Rooms looked to have been recently remodeled. Outside not as nice. Embarkation: Very smooth! We arrived ...

Wow - what a cruise. This was the first time my 12 year old daughter and I had cruised and it was amazing. I had heard on several previous reviews this was an older ship and was concerned. After seeing how well it was kept up there was absolutely no reason for concern. Getting on the ship was extremely easy and we were checked in and on the ship within 1/2 hr. I would suggest online checkin. ...

A group of three of us sailed on the March 11th cruise. We are all college aged guys and had an oceanview cabin on Deck 2. I will describe the cruise by day. Saturday - Boarding was fairly simple. We drove, dropped our luggage off at the terminal, then parked our car in the parking deck. We were onboard by 1:00, bought the soda card, and went to eat in the Windjammer for the afternoon buffet. ...

We embarked on the Grandeur of the Seas from New Orleans on St. Patrick's Day. We boarded the ship with no real problems. I was traveling with my husband and my son who is eight. None of us had ever been on a cruise before. We boarded at about 1:00 p.m. and we had to wait a few minutes before we were allowed into our cabins. When we were allowed into 2536, an oceanview cabin, we were a little ...
