First time cruiser's viewpoint

This was my first cruise so I have nothing to compare it with. Overall, it was okay. Not spectacular, not awful. The water was thankfully smooth, the weather cool. We had a cabin on deck 2 in the center and it was ...

Loved, Loved, Loved this Cruise!

This was the first cruise for my 17 year old daughter and myself. I would book it again in a heartbeat. In the past I would have never considered going on a ship with 2,000 strangers for 8 days. Well, never say ...

First time cruise; I'll be back!

This was my first time on an ocean-going cruise. I was afraid to be on a ship with that many people, given all the horror stories I have read about Norovirus and malfunctions at sea. I chose Grandeur of the Seas, ...

Easy, fun and worth the price

My wife and I are seasoned cruisers with roughly 60 cruises, mostly on Celebrity. I don't think the Grandeur should be rated on the same basis as more modern ships leaving from Florida. The ship is old, the gym ...
