Okay but not great
"What lifted this cruise was the dining room where there was no sign of the reported lack of staff and being solo I was in and out in under an hour each night, the Windjammer though was not open for dinner.I deliberately booked a cruise from Barbados though and correctly assessed that a new port would revive the ship...."Read More

Like most cruisers, having had cruises cancelled over the past 2 years, my wife and I were eager to get back to our favourite holiday. We booked the cruise leaving from Barbados and visiting a Greneda, the ABC islands and St. Lucia (instead of Trinidad). After a long journey from Glasgow to Bridgetown via Heathrow, we were met with long queues and delays at the airport, which seemed not to be ...

My worst RC cruise was on the Grandeur, I know some people did millions of cruises on her from Baltimore but as an overseas traveller I just felt unwelcome starting from check in when they saw my British passport and asked if I was a visiting entertainer and finishing when no end of cruise excursions were offered. I deliberately booked a cruise from Barbados though and correctly assessed that ...

Biggest problem was that the windjammer was closed in the evening so we could not find anything to eat. We have restricted diets and did not go to restuarants to see a set menu. So each night we went to teh little cafe and had fruit and cookies. It might have been useful if they had given advance notice of WJ closure. In fcat the RCI app was showing WJ to be open in evenings - that was right upto ...

We loved this itinerary and price so much we booked back to back cruises. Royal Caribbean and the islands didn't disappoint. 12 beaches in 14 days. Some rain but it never lasted for more than a couple of minutes. The food was great and Johnathan ensured we had our usual window seat every night for dinner. Due to low numbers, the Windjammer buffet wasn't open for dinner the first ...

This is a review from people travelling from the UK as the procedures do seem to be different depending on where you are travelling from. We found the protocols and procedures unnecessarily complicated. Having to fill in forms both on the RC app and the RC website and the bimsafe app we must have printed out over 50 pieces of paper in total! Saying that it was all worth it. Our ...

Ship's staff makes it a more rewarding experience.

I choose this cruise as it was a bargain price and everything about it was impressive. The ship may be 20 years old but it looked much younger in appearance and certainly gave the wow factor. The ship's staff whilst remaining professional in their duties treated every passenger like a personal friend and it really added to the overall experience. I really felt at home on board. The main ...

In rather unfortunate circumstances, my partner tested positive for COVID at the cruise terminal in Barbados. We were meant to sail on the 30/01/22 on board Grandeur of the Seas. On our day of boarding we arrived at the port terminal for our allotted time and completed our rapid antigen COVID tests as expected. Unfortunately my partner, tested positive, but I tested negative. A further 2 ...

This is my fifth cruise this year. We have cruised with Carnival, Norwegian, MSC, Princess, Costa Pullmantur and Royal Carribean. I chose this cruise for my family because of the itinerary. We stayed overnight at Sweetfield Manor, Bridgetown, Barbados. Superb boutique hotel, before arriving at the port for check in. It all went smoothly you have to download the local testing sight app and after ...

We live in Barbados and therefore wanted a cruise which sailed out of Barbados and which included Christmas day. I travelled with my son and daughter and granddaughter who is 6 years old. Adventure Ocean proved to be everything my granddaughter wanted: art & craft, painting, games, magic plasticine playdoh, slime etc. She couldn't wait to go back after each session. The crew members in ...

We picked this cruise after having so many cancelled, that we wanted to to try something new. A new ship for us. New ports for us. Flying to a foreign country was new. A great price after all the credits. The stress level was new too with all the requirements between the cruise line, airline and countries. We flew out of Miami, and for those doing that for the first time in this day and age, ...
