We had teenagers on the trip and thought some of the activities would be enjoyable. Once on board the ship and located in our cabin things were going well. We then went to our first meal and it was a disaster. The crowds were overwhelming and seats to eat were hard to find in the dining room. The food was not tasty and the desserts were extremely dry and tasteless. The main shows were booked up on the first day so we were unable to attend. The sales on the ship are a scam. They had a 75% off sale on watches. I bought a watch that showed an original price of over $700. I bought it for $150. When I got home I looked on amazon and found the identical watch and model number on sale for $79. I feel this is fraud and should be reported to appropriate authorities. Since the cruise ship is not based in the US, I doubt there is much I can do but report this kind of activity on sites such as yours. The ship had too many people in reference to the facilities on board. The pool was so crowded that you had to try to pick some off hours to get in the pool. All in all a crowded, congested experience, with tasteless food, and included being ripped off in their watch sale. Read Less

My wife and I sailed on Grandeur of the Seas (third time) from Jan. 21 to Jan 31 out of Baltimore. We loved the cruise. As usual, the service was excellent and the ship was great. The cabins had been improved since our last cruise (wide-screen t.v., better bedding, etc.). We did notice some aspects had changed. The food selection and quality has declined over the years and , if you are looking for the mid-night buffet and Caribbean cookout on deck...they are gone. That is not to say the food is not good....just not as good as it once was.

Overall, while we love the ship, we probably will not sail on Grandeur again as we would like to sail on another ship (we have sailed on 8 cruses). Too bad another ship is not docked in Baltimore as the bus trip from Pittsburgh to Baltimore is great! Less security and hassel found in air transportation. Something to keep in mind, this cruise is traditionally found to be with an older group of passengers. The average age on this last cruise was probably 65 to 70. Lots of walkers and wheelchairs.
