No food selection

We chose this cruise for the port of departure, New Orleans, and ports of call. New Orleans is always a great city to enjoy and explore before or after a cruise. We had sailed on her four years before and were ...

Super Small boat dedicated to people in their 80s or older.

Our original cruise itinerary was changed via Royal Caribbean cuz they decided to take our boat out of service for maintenance. Left with no choice due to the dates we had locked in we were forced to pick this boat. ...

Great staff, mediocre everything else

This cruise was a severe disappointment. The ship itself is ill designed, with no place that is peaceful or quiet. The food in Aquarius ran from mediocre most of the time to a few nearly inedible desserts. Trying ...

Like a Hampton Inn on the seas

We booked late, and this was what fit our budget. That should have been the first sign. The ship kept reminding me of "The Love Boat" then it occurred to me that it was almost that old of a ship. The styling, ...

Smokers Boat

The boat was smaller and much older than expected, ceiling ripped around the pool sitting area, can lights falling out in the dining room, most windows in the adult pool area are all corroded with salt buildup and ...

Disappointed

This was my 4th cruise, my first with Royal Caribbean. I had high expectations because of the rave reviews I had received of Royal Caribbean. I know traveling in February would not be a typical "family" crowd but ...

RCCL Quality failing

Been on a couple RCCL cruises in the last 4 years and our group of 11 opted for this cruise due to the great experiences we had on the previous cruises. I'm sorry to say, to us, it was obvious the services on the ...

Bland Food. Short Ports. Missed Private Island.

I've cruised on Carnival and Celebrity in the past and thought RC's Serenade of the Seas was a couple of steps down from my other cruise experiences. The food was bland and usually overcooked, the port stops were ...

Meh

This was my third time cruising and first with my 7-year-old daughter. The other two cruises were with Carnival. We chose Royal Caribbean because it was supposed to be a step up from Carnival (which has been ...

Tired ship, tired food

We cruise yearly and really look forward to our trip. We decided to try going out of New Orleans instead of Florida. Going down the Mississippi River is very unique, and at times made me a little nervous due to the ...

Tired, Old, and Lack Luster

The ship has indeed seen her better days and they are all in the past. The boarding staff in New Orleans were rude, uninformed, and totally messed up boarding directions. They treated the passengers like cattle and ...

Grandeur of the Seas - Western Caribbean

New Orleans is a marvelous port to embark/disembark from. However, Grandeur of the Seas is the poorest excuse for a cruise ship I've ever been on. The dining room service was the ONLY redeemable aspect of this ...

Overprice Vacation/Lackluster ship/Destinations not made

If it is too cold to go in the pool on deck, the only things for your children to do is the rock wall (during it's open hours) and Ocean adventure (their understaffed kid's care). The shows were so, so... ...
