Random thoughts: Grandeur needs a refresh of all the public areas! However, the convenience of leaving from Baltimore and the quality of the staff more than make up for this. The check-in process was much slower than previous ... Read more

So happy we chose the 9 night Bermuda & Bahama cruise as our first experience! A shorter cruise might have meant that we were finished even before we figured out where to go and what to do on the ship! Just sitting on the balcony ... Read more

My family member planned the cruise. The room was comfortable. It did take a few days to get used to the layout of the ship.I did not have any input other than opting for the "anytime" meal option which was good and paying tax ... Read more

This is a smaller and older boat but it was fantastic. The staff and crew were so friendly... lots of activities for adults and kids. Very clean and the staterooms were bigger than I thought they would be. LOTS of storage space. The staff ... Read more

This was a fantastic cruise! Cruise Maryland was very easy to navigate and we were through and on-board VERY quickly. The staff was overall extremely friendly and warm. This ship, even though one of the oldest in RCCL's fleet at 1996, ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the destination and because one of my potential cruise mates was afraid to fly and lives in Silver Springs MD. Unfortunately she did not join us and I will never sail out of the Port of Baltimore again, but that is ... Read more

Bermuda was pretty but where we were docked, not much to see. The only beach there was crappy. You had to pay to get in for an umbrella, pay for lounge chair. The beach was so small we were packed like sardines. So disappointed. ... Read more

This was our first cruise, our honeymoon. We picked it based on the date and convenient port (Baltimore is 2 hours away from our home) and we were so so pleased with the whole experience. The ship (we learned) is a smaller ship and so ... Read more

I was talked into cruising by my significant other. At age 73, having never cruised before and not sure I would like it, we chose the 5 day cruise to Bermuda based on the relatively short time on the water and on the proximity to my home ... Read more

We stayed in the junior suite, a great upgrade if you can afford it. DO NOT BUY THE INTERNET PACKAGE! I paid quite a bit and was unable to stay on for more than 2 minutes at a time. Very frustrated, I would have like to had a refund but ... Read more

Even though getting on the ship was a bit of a hassle, we very much enjoyed our cruise. This was our first cruise and it met our expectations in every way. Despite the ship's age it was clean and well-maintained. The crew in particular ... Read more

I had never been on a cruise and largely relied on word of mouth about the whole cruising experience. The room was adequate size for me (although I was alone, I could see how it would be more cramped with more than one person), and was ... Read more

We love the size of the Grandeur, very easy to meet people and crew. The port of Baltimore is one of the best ports, easy to get to and embarkation is very efficient and fast. We enjoy sailing to New England and Canada, it's a nice ... Read more

Just a couple of warnings about cruising on Royal Caribbean in general. A) Their policy states that you are allowed to bring two bottles of wine on board when getting on the ship. They can be no larger than 750 ml and only wine. Fine, ... Read more

We reserved a Junior Suite for this cruise and were shocked at how much smaller the room was compared to other R.C. Junior Suites. We were also excited because we heard the ship had recently come out of dry dock and expected improvements. ... Read more
