  1. Hello everyone. Following is a list of Junior Suite perks from the RCI stateroom online reservation page. This is specifically from the Junior Suite category, not just the general suite category. Priority check-in and departure lounge Concierge Services Priority tender tickets Complimentary luggage valet service Luxury spa bathrobes to use onboard The first item clearly shows Priority check-in and departure lounge, but during a tel/con with a RCI rep, I was told these perks are not included with the Junior Suites on the Grandeur out of Baltimore. Has anyone had any first hand experience with the Junior Suite perks on the Grandeur, specifically the check-in and boarding perks? Thanks in advance!
  2. Does Izumi do Hibachi (cook in front of you).
  3. Does anyone have photos of the Grandeur of the Seas Cruise Compasses for their 9 day Bahamas run? We are going on October 17 out of Baltimore!!!!
  4. We will be sailing on Grandeur of the Seas in October. We would like to make our My Time Dining dinner reservations. It would help us to know the timing of Traditional Dining and Show Times. Can anyone help us with those questions? Thanks, Sandie
  5. Have 3 (hopefully quick) questions about Grandeur. 1. I know that the standards of dress in the MDR is a constant source of frustration for some, but I just called RC and they said that ALL HATS, even women's hats which might go with their evening outfits, are not allowed in the MDR. I know that I've seen both men and women wear hats or headwear on formal nights, but has anyone seen women wearing hats on other nights and getting into trouble for it? Just need to know how much of a risk I might run if we try to do something with hats. 2. Has anyone done the Bottomless Galley Tour? One of our group is interested, but she is also the one that is in a motorized scooter. (Between you and me, I think she's most interested in the bottomless drinks part, not so much the Galley tour but what can you do? 🙂 ) Again, called RC and they said that the tour is accessible, but wondering if anyone who has actually gone on it has more info or insight; didn't feel confident with RC's answer. 3. Does anyone know/have an idea on how many tables are in the Specialty restaurants? We have the 3 night package, but we're trying to figure out how much of a hassle it might be to book them, especially if they only seat like 30 tables or something. Thanks in advance!
  6. Hi everyone! My name is Missy and this will be my first cruise. I want everyone to weigh in on the best things to do! There are so many choices so I want to know the good and the bad!!!
  7. Anyone who has been on Grandeur lately, does it have the coke freestyle machines? If so, do you remember where they were located? Second, does Park Cafe still close at 1am and does it have some type of pizza late night? Thanks in advance!
  8. Hi. We are in a JS aboard the Grandeur in April. My son lives getting room service late at night. Does it end at a certain time or a charge at a certain time. If there is room service, does anyone have a picture of it Thank you!
  9. First time on RCI. We’ll be on the Grandeur O. S. out of Baltimore on March 3, 2020. I know the buffet will be open for lunch on embarkation day. Does anyone know if the main dining room will also be open? Thanks in advance.
  10. We are looking into a cruise leaving from Baltimore on the Grandeur of the Seas. Has anyone sailed on this ship recently? What was it like? I tried looking for some reviews, but was mostly finding things from a few years ago. What was your favorite parts? Anything go wrong? So far I've been on the Celebrity Solstice to Alaska and Regal Princess to New England & Canada, Looking forward to seeing what RCL will be like 🙂
  11. Grandeur of the Seas - Are the suites ready for occupancy at the same time as other staterooms? Should I plan on 1:00? Trying to plan for carry-on. Thank you!!
  12. Does anyone know if the Concierge for Diamond Plus have the ability to make SeaPass cards for room entry only? If so, which concierge? Diamond Lounge or the Concierge Lounge?
  13. Have this ship booked for Bermuda next April, mainly for the itenerary but will be first time on this small of ship in the Royal line of ships, we always make the most of our cruises and don't worry about all the bells and whistles of the newer ships not being on the Grandeur!.....thanks!
  14. Does anyone know how to contact the Loyalty Ambassador on the Grandeur of the Seas? Also what is the email address of the Concierge in the Concierge Lounge? Thanks
  15. Is there a refrigerator in OV cabin category 2N?
  16. Grandeur of the Seas. Will be the first time in Owner's Suite. Have found different amenities offered on different sites. Can any one clarify what amenities are offered? Fruit basket on arrival, Captain's Table for dinner, anything you can think of? Just excited and want to pack/plan accordingly. Thank you!
  17. We have a 9-night cruise booked on the Grandeur for October. At the time, we were not using scooters when we cruised (booked in October of 2018). We now cruise with two scooters due to mobility issues. We have an inside cabin and I've called to see if there are any fully accessible cabins available for our sailing, there are not. I know when we sailed the Majesty last year, we did see scooters parked in the hallways (we are right near the elevator lobby and that is where we would park, if possible). I know that what RCCL (and all cruiselines) tell passengers is that you need the charge the scooter in your cabin. I also know that once you are on board, things can be slightly more relaxed. For example, we recently sailed Celebrity and they came and took the scooters when requested and charged them for us, bringing them back the early the next morning. Has anyone had any experience on RCCL (the Grandeur specifically), of that kind of service being offered? If they are going to be hard and fast on the no scooters in the hall or elevator lobby, I need to look in to changing this itinerary for something with a handicapped accessible cabin. Thanks!
  18. The long awaited replacement of the poolside video screen on Grandeur of the Seas is now underway. A team joined us yesterday in Port Canaveral who took down the old LED box system. This morning a much larger team boarded at Miami to load numerous crates via a large crane. Parts of decks 9 and 10 were closed off during the lift. The attached photo shows scaffolding being erected for installation of the new screen. While no announcements have been made as to when the screen will be ready, there is a team of about five technicians on board who appear to be the actual video installers. It does look like this will be a new technology solution rather than just replacement of the LED box screen elements as they have removed all of the older mounting hardware. The crates are marked "Daktronics", who are a U.S. based provider of large outdoor video displays. Hopefully this will be a much brighter and sharper system. /Greg
  19. Hello Cruisers, me and my party of 13 all purchased the 3 Night Dining Package for our sailing next week. My question is how hard will it be to change our reservations once we get on the boat to suit our needs?
  20. In late 2020 or 2021 I am thinking of taking a cruise out of Baltimore on the Royal Carribean Grandeur of the Sea with my wife and 2 kids (my 2 kids will be 3 and 6 at the time). I have done Carnival Pride out of Baltimore before with a cruise their also scheduled this coming October but want to do Royal Carribean next year or 2021 for my first time since my youngest will be 3 then so he can be in their kids club. What are your thoughts on this ship? Sailing out of Baltimore is easier for me because it is a 2 hour drive, I do not want to fly with kids yet. If you have sailed this ship and Carnival Pride how does Grandeur compare?
  21. Does anyone have a copy of a 5 day menu from the Grandeur going to Bermuds
  22. I’ve never done a review of a cruise but always enjoy reading the reviews so I thought I would give it a try and write a review. I say semi-live because I will most likely look at this late evenings after my day is done and I settle done for the night. I am typing from my phone so please excuse any typos. 😳 Now for a little about myself and my cruise. I am traveling with my family. We are a family of four that have cruised before. I have two teenagers- one 18 year old and a 16 year old. I often see questions about teens so I will add a bit about what they do throughout the cruise. The kids have gone through various age groups at the camps in the past. The 18 year old just aged out of the camp and the 16 year old is still able to join in the camp activities. Both have enjoyed the Cabos over the years as it had given them the chance to meet other kids their age to hang out with during the week. They have found that the first few days all the kids go to the camp and form groups. These groups tend to stick together throughout the duration of the cruise. Day 1 the 16 year old went up and met other kids. The 18 year cannot go to the camp any longer but is able to go to the on board club but not drink alcoholic drinks but can order virgin drinks. As far as the cruise, the itinerary is nine nights up the NE and Canada. We will stop in Boston, Massachusetts; Portland and Bar Harbor, Maine; Saint Johns Canada and Halifax Canada. Day at one was fantastic! Boarding in Baltimore is so easy. As you enter the parking lot, the attendant directs you to the luggage carts. You luggage is pulled out of your car and than you park. It took about 10 minutes to get through security at 12:00pm. We than took the boarding pictures and were on board by 12:30pm. Vacation has started!!! 😀. Once on board, we headed to lunch. Being in a suite, we were treated to a special lunch for suite guest. I ordered salmon and it was delicious. Husband and kids ordered skirt steak. Once I figure out how to upload pictures, I will post a few. After lunch, we roamed a bit to get reacquainted with the ship. Next was the mandatory muster drill. It was very well run and went quickly. and than went up to the concierge lounge. We met a few cruisers and enjoyed lovely conversation and then headed down to our room to unpack and get ready for dinner. Dinner was pork chops with fresh veggies. After dinner, we e plotted a bit more before heading to the Pacific Lounge for the ABBA trivia game. I am horrible at trivia but it was fun nonetheless. After the trivia there was karaoke. I watched the first few performance and then headed back to the room to finish unpacking. Once unpacked, I headed up to the Viking Lounge. It was not crowded but fun. The bartender was personable and it was a nice way to end Day 1.
  23. I finally finished and uploaded my journal of our 5-day cruise on Grandeur of the Seas. It is in two parts and here are the links. Part 1 - http://susancrow.blogspot.com/2019/06/cruising-to-bermuda-part-1.html Part 2 - http://susancrow.blogspot.com/2019/06/cruising-to-bermuda-part-2.html For some background, I traveled with my husband, my mom and my older sister. This was the first cruise my mom has taken since my dad died almost two years ago. She said she wasn't going to cruise again without my dad, but we invited her anyway because I knew she wanted to see Bermuda. I was very happy she decided to go! I think she had a good time, even though she wasn't feeling well part of the time. I'll write up some general comments in a bit and post more pictures. If anyone has questions about the ship or what we did in Bermuda, I'll be glad to answer if I can.
  24. I am just wondering if anyone has ever purchased the package which gives you three fitness classes for $29. Is this a good deal? Is there any way to find out the class schedule before boarding? I called RC but they were not very helpful. Will be on Grandeur later this month. Much appreciated!
  25. We would love to book a Grand Suite, but all suites are right below the Windjammer/Pool deck. Please help! I'm so afraid of the noise from the deck above. What has been your experience? Thank you so much.
