An oldie but a goodie

Review for Grandeur of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern

There may not be all of the bells and whistles but this boat still had enough to do. I would suggest this boat only if you have many ports on your itinerary. If you are at sea for more than 2 days I would suggest another option so you have more things available to do. Our kids did miss some activities though we were only at sea for the first and last day of the cruise so that worked out well. ...

We wanted a cruise to simply relax and not run ragged with shore excursions. We did take 1 shore excursion which turned out to be pretty good. The food was excellent and the service was exceptional. So exceptional we asked for the same table each night just to be with the same waiter, assistant waiter and headwaiter. All of the crew smiled and said hello including the officers. The theater shows ...

Chose this cruise to visit islands of Aruba, Curocao and Bonaire. Good dive islands but wasnt the greatest for things to do. Booked through travel agent and did the online checkin, packages, etc. The app worked very well for me throughout the trip. Had a few drops but didnt have the net pkg so expected that. Embarkation went well. Ship size was very good for me. Big enough to stay busy but small ...

This was our first ABC islands cruise and 2nd time on Explorer! The ship does not disappoint. The crew were amazing, super friendly and attentive. It's definitely fun to be on a Halloween cruise with the costume parades, ships decorations, Halloween desserts in the Windjammer! Interior of ship was spotless. Food in all dining areas tasty. Entertainment as always on Royal Caribbean was excellent. ...

Cruise was just the wife and me. We booked a guaranteed balcony. We got our room assigned about 3 weeks before sailing. We got room 6338. This turned out to be the largest balcony room we have had. Plenty of room. The balcony does have the steel on lower part, but this didn't really brother us at all. The ship is showing it age in parts, but overall, in decent shape. We also found the ship very ...

Just returned from an 8 day cruise to the ABC Islands onboard Explorer of the Seas. We are avid cruisers and cruised on this ship in 2004 and Navigator in 2005. More recently we discovered NCL and have been cruising with them the past five or six years. Don't think we will be going back to RCL any time soon. The good: Our room was FANTASTIC we were in a Spacious Panoramic Room on the ...

I’m going to break this review down into sections for easy reading. The ship- the ship is very easy to navigate, but desperately needs updating. It has a lot to offer as long as you don’t mind huge crowds and A LOT of kids EVERYWHERE. The ship was overall clean except for some stains on the tablecloths in main dining. 3/5 The room- we had the balcony room. Room is outdated with limited ...

I chose the cruise along with my husband and two more family members as we wanted to visit the ABC islands. We had been previously but my family members had not. We also found this cruise to be exceptional value and we had sailed with and enjoyed Royal Caribbean previously. After booking I found several negative reviews on this site and actually considered cancelling the cruise!! Thankfully I ...

Great ship but dated with subpar food

Super shocked to have to write a review for an Oasis class ship that had bad food but this one was a shocker. Albeit this is our first cruise post Covid I think that its just how things might be for a bit. The main dining room was a huge let down. We tend to avoid buffets on ships but on this one we had to go a couple times because the MDR was just disappointing and often cold. MDR food: ...

excellent 8 day cruise with a good itinerary. ate breakfast and dinner in the main dining room. the food on this ship tastes like food i would get in a regular restaurant. even the desserts tasted rich. never did figure out my time dining. apparently its MyTime as long as it is after 6:30. after the first night i tried making a dinner reservation in any restaurant on the ship including ...
