A little Disappointed

This was my first time on Royal Caribbean. I have cruised with Carnival over 16 times. I have been told that I should not judge Royal Caribbean based on this ship, so I will try to bring out as many positives as ...

Gluten free on the Grandeur

A good time was had by all. While there were several gluten free menu items, there was not much variety. I ended up having the same things for dinner nearly every night in the dining room, because there were only ...

We signed up for this cruise a year in advance. We wanted this particular destination and the price was right. We were also happy to try a cruise from Baltimore so we could just drive to the port. Ten of our family ...

Great cruise for seniors/retirees, not so much for 18-40 year olds

Grandeur is a great ship with great staff but has seemed to tailor its daily activity schedule for the retirees/seniors that frequently travel on this ship. This was my second sailing on Grandeur (last one was a 7 ...

Bermuda is now my favorite island

I have never done a cruise and I was so nervous I wasn’t going to like it. I was afraid I’d get sea sick or have a feeling of being trapped. I was nervous about being in the middle of the ocean for days. We ...
