Grandeur cabin 7076 and 7078

Recommended Posts

Could someone who have sailed in one of those cabins (or identical ones across the hall #7576/7578) please, advise if the location is too noisy due to proximity to the Centrum (from what I can tell by looking at the deck plan). We have never sailed Grandeur before. Your inputs are appreciated.

My other options would be more posteriorly located cabins, such as 7110/7112, but I think there is less rocking mid-ship versus more aft.

Thank You.

We have been in 7100 before which is 11 cabins aft of that location, but just on the other side of the Centrum, and had no issues with noise at all. There is a wall between the Panoramic Ocean View Staterooms right at the Centrum which results in a hallway that is separated from direct exposure to the Centrum. The rooms you indicate are also in the hallway. I would not expect that area to have particular noise issues. In any event the music and other activity on deck 4 in the Centrum usually is over by 11:00 PM.

 

7110 / 7112 would certainly be fine as they are further aft down the hall. Don't think there would be noticeably more motion there as a result.

 

Maybe others can add their experience as well.

Thank You so much for your response. We are looking forward to our February, 2015 sailing to Bahamas.

Grandeur really is a very nice ship with a great crew. If you enjoy alternative venues for dining outside of the MDR, they offer Chops, Giovanni's Table, Izumi, Chefs Table, and also have the Park cafe. The Centrum Aerial act is very unique and originates from deck 7. They also offer a pool side big screen and a very nice Solarium adult pool area.

 

We will be on her again in July. Enjoy your cruise!

I wouldn't worry about the cabin location. Once your stateroom door is closed the room will be quiet. We've been in a cabin near the Centrum and didn't have any noise issues.

 

My only concern about going out of Baltimore in February is that there could be snow on the deck until you get a day or so out of port!

 

We love the Grandeur and have two cruises booked on her in 2014.

GiannaD, Thank You for the reply.

I am very reassured hearing from you and the previous poster, stating that Grandeur is a great ship. I see that you sailed on Equinox and other newer, larger vessels. I was really worried about Grandeur due to all negative reviews. On the other hand, we recently sailed Breakaway and we could not comprehend what people were complaining about. Thanks again.

Each ship has its own personality and while we like the larger Solstice class Celebrity ships we also really enjoy the smaller Grandeur. The crew on Grandeur is wonderful and even though it is an older ship it has been recently updated and is sparkling. If you are looking for slides, wave runners, ice skating, miniature golf and aqua shows you are on the wrong ship. Grandeur is quieter in a very nice way. It is good for relaxation and not being part of a mob. There are still plenty of activities including shows, bingo, the casino, activities in the Centrum, aerial shows, trivia,demonstrations, tours, and movies on the big screen on the pool deck but not the WOW of the Oasis and larger ships. Success and satisfaction on any voyage has a lot to do with expectations. I expect to relax, eat well, be entertained and enjoy myself with a nice group of fellow travelers. The celebrity ships are larger than the Grandeur and we enjoy their understated elegance and low key activities. :)

Agree on every point.
