Why choose Grandeur of the Seas?

The Grandeur of the Seas is part of Royal Caribbean's Vision class of ships. Built in 1996, this liner has just benefited from a $48 million refurbishment to bring its décor and facilities right up to date and introduce new dining and entertainment options. However, some popular design features have stood the test of time such as the extra wide pool. Based in Baltimore, the ship tours the Caribbean, Canada and New England and Bermuda in style.

Destinations and Itineraries

As one might expect from a Royal Caribbean ship, the Grandeur of the Seas spends a lot of time touring picture postcard islands. Cruises last between six and ten nights on board. A Bahamas cruise sets off from Baltimore and spends a day at sea before arriving at Port Canaveral in Florida, where excursions are organised to Disney World, Universal Studios Tours and the Nasa Space Centre. An airboat adventure is a more modest option. In the Bahamas Royal Caribbean's private island of Coco Bay is the next stop, an island paradise of watersports or sunbathing. Nassau is next, before the ship spends another two days at sea returning to Baltimore.

For the summer, the Grandeur of the Seas alternates its itinerary between this Bahamas cruise and one to Bermuda. Again setting off from Baltimore, the ship spends a day at sea heading to Bermuda where it is moored for three days. Excursions include glass bottomed boat tours of an illuminated shipwreck or sailing along the Hamilton Sound. The ship spends another day at sea on its return journey.

From September, the Bahamas is dropped from the schedule and replaced with an eight night cruise to Canada and New England to witness the spectacular autumn foliage. The first stop after a day at sea is Portland Maine before it makes a call in the beautiful Bar Harbour on the third day of this cruise. Two ports in Canada, St John in New Brunswick and Halifax in Nova Scotia complete the itinerary.

For island adventures, and on board relaxation and recreation, the Grandeur of the Seas offers a service that is second-to-none. Royal Caribbean have spared no expense bringing this ship right up to date to ensure that a cruise on this elegant ocean liner takes travellers to paradise - be it Bermuda or Barbados - in the most luxurious way possible.


Royal Caribbean ships have a wealth of leisure options and the Grandeur of the Seas is no exception. There is one large pool on board and six Jacuzzis. A jogging track, a solarium and a sports court will keep the active busy, not to mention the climbing wall, vitality spa and fitness centre. Here, passenger can try activities from aerobics to yoga, and then relax in the sauna or steam room or have a treatment in the beauty salon. The youngsters won't miss out on any fun as the ship is rated good for children. There is an Adventure Ocean youth area, video arcade, plus competitions and events organised for anyone aged between three and 17.


Among the smaller ships in Royal Caribbean's sizeable fleet, the Grandeur of the Seas has 975 cabins, 212 of which have a balcony and 364 commanding ocean views. All staterooms are medium-sized with sufficient storage space, a TV, telephone and safe, a sitting area and compact bathrooms. The double beds can be converted to two singles. Suites and deluxe staterooms have bathtubs in the bathrooms, and complimentary concierge and valet services, as well as priority check in and departure. Evening entertainment is provided in two show lounges, the Palladium Theatre, home to stage spectaculars and comedy, or the South Pacific Lounge for cabaret and dancing. The ship has a disco, a library, an internet cafe, a champagne bar and terrace, a casino and a card room. The Schooner Bar, the Singing in the Rain Lounge, and the Viking Crown Lounge completes the huge range of evening entertainment options.


There is one main dining room on this ship, occupying two decks. Its Great Gatsby theme evokes the golden age of cruising and can cater for all passengers in two sittings, offering friendly and attentive service. Alternatives include the Windjammer café which offers salads and burgers. A coffee bar, Latte-tude is a popular pit stop for a cappuccino and a pastry, and the ship also has a Ben & Jerry's ice cream parlour. Dress code on the ship is casual and comfortable during the day and smart casual in the evening. Formal evenings require men to wear a dinner suit or dark suit and ladies to wear a cocktail dress.
