Grandeur of the Seas Cruise Review by Rddunn
- Sail Date: June 2019
- Destination: Canada & New England
A list of things that need serious improvement:
• The food - The meals on this ship were less than sub par. I was highly disappointed in the options and the execution of the food. I can cook better than these supposedly trained chefs. I can promise you, the lasagna tasted exactly like Chef Boyardee right out of a can. Every vegetable served on the plate were essentially raw. The portions were never the same, even for guests sitting at the same table. The food was always cold. I always felt like it had sat out for some time before being served. The buffet was the best option for breakfast and lunch—there was better variety and the food was actually decent. On lobster night, a couple of members in my group decided they wanted an entire lobster and were willing to spend the additional $30. The lobster came out with nothing but the carrcus and a small bit of meat on the plate. The lobster tails had more meat in them. It was a waste of $30.
• Cleanliness - Oh my goodness. The cleanliness on this ship needs to be investigated. On multiple occasions, dishes were dirty: lipstick on water glasses, the previous day's meal on silverware, pulp dried in water glasses...etc. One of my family members ended up with a virus from the unclean utensils and dishes. Also, the public bathrooms were not kept clean.
• Sugar free dessert options - while the desserts were decent, when eating in the dining room for dinner, there was only one option for those with dietary restrictions compared to multiple options for those without dietary restrictions. Some of the sugar free desserts at dinner were just practically inedible.
• Technology - There was no app available for large groups to communicate through. The option available was to spend approximately $15 per person/per day. There is absolutely no way I was going to pay for that.

Schooner SailNot handicap accessible and it was nothing more than sitting on a boat with the sun bearing down in you for an hour.View All 8 Schooner Sail Reviews
Saint John (New Brunswick)There was nothing much to do here unless you booked a tour. All the tours offered by the cruise ship involved strenuous activity or the reversing rapids (not exciting!). We ended up walking to a mall and boarded the ship again with 2 hours.View All 372 Saint John (New Brunswick) Cruise Port Reviews
