Embarkation and debarkation at the Port of Baltimore is easy and fast. The ship was extremely clean and easy to navigate. Entertainment and activities were plentiful and awesome, though we would have liked more trivia and some themed ... Read more

We chose this cruise because our friends were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary on this cruise and we wanted to celebrate with them. I enjoyed the ports and the ship was lovely. It also helped that we had perfect weather the ... Read more

We were looking for a cruise from a port near enough to us so we would not have to fly to get there. Baltimore was closest and fairly convenient. The ship, although older, was fine. Very smooth sailing the entire voyage from Baltimore ... Read more

Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly. Although the Grandeur has just recently come out of dry dock after "refurbishing", I could not see what the "refurbishments" consisted of... and we cruised on the Grandeur ... Read more

This is a great New England Cruise and we chose it due to the ports and summer break. The ship is not too big, but has plenty to enjoy. We liked the musicians in the evening in the center of the ship prior to dinner, and several nights ... Read more

I chose Royal because I have had great experience in the past. The ship is older and smaller so not a whole lot for younger kids to do. My teen didn't want to give the teen center a try because he didn't get it out right away and was ... Read more

The ship is a bit dated but overall is in nice condition. This size ship may not have as many amenities as the larger ones, but there are far less less people as well. Embarkation was a bit tedious. Thought we were getting there early ... Read more

We choose this cruise because another family invited us and the Ports of call looked fun. It was a fun cruise overall and the ports of call were very interesting except perhaps St John. The food and pool (small and salty, no slide) are a ... Read more

Before taking this cruise I read some negative reviews on this site so was a little apprehensive. I shouldn't have been as my expectations were greatly exceeded. The friendly staff of Grandeur of the Seas bent over backwards to attend to ... Read more

I wholeheartedly recommend this cruise. The ports of call were beautiful, especially Bar Harbor/Acadia. The rooms were immaculate, the food was great and the staff was helpful and friendly. This was my first cruise and was perfect for a ... Read more

Cape Liberty NJ. Embarking was uneventful. Ports, Bar Harbor Tendering to shore. You take a number and wait and wait and wait to be called. Returning to ship no number but you wait + wait...you get the picture. Shore ... Read more

This ship is beautiful. My only complaint was the dining room. The food was just adequate. However Jamie's was excellent. Embarkation went smoothly, we walked on the ship at 11:00. We immediately went to the theater so I could book I fly. ... Read more

We took this cruise because of the ports, length and sailing out of the New York area. This was a family trip, as our boys are getting older and have a life of their own and my wife's parents are getting older, it was important we take a ... Read more

Great for families with a variety of age groups. Something for everyone. Elegant, but still fun enough for teens. Younger children will really enjoy the kids club. The staff was friendly and the ship is immaculate. We traveled as a ... Read more

We throughly enjoyed our cruise. (I was worried after reading some negative reviews). The ship was big and had lots of people on board, but we knew that. After day one, the crowds disperse better and you can find quiet spots. About the ... Read more

Wanted to do a NE & Canada Itinerary for a change. Big Ship - Bar Harbor does not work. The Bar Harbor tendering process was TERRIBLE. If you weren't on an RCCL excursion, it took 3-4 hours to get to shore. Poorly organized, ... Read more

Anthem is a beautiful ship, but there were too many people, always crowded because school is out. Food in the main dining room was a bit disappointing. The lobster was good though. Went on a whale watching excursion in Halifax. Not good, ... Read more

We have been on many Royal Caribbean cruises...over 20 and have been on a variety of class of ships. This was the worst Royal cruise by far. The boat was full which we expected and have experienced on many other ships. This time, we ... Read more

We got off the 5 nighter to Bar Harbor and Halifax on Saturday. We chose the Anthem primarily because we didn’t want a long flight. We also hadn’t been to Halifax and were interested to see it. The Very Good Embarkation ... Read more

I chose this itinerary as a surprise for my husband for our 32nd anniversary. Overall, the ship is lovely and modern, but because it's meant for cold-weather sailings there's a lot of indoor spaces which seem to become overcrowded. I think ... Read more
