I'm waiting for reviews also. I'm sailing on May 31st and haven't been able to find any recent review. The general consensus on here is that since the Grandeur was sailing RT from South America, we wouldn't see many reviews until the sailings from Baltimore start.

Default I saw a couple of reviews for Grandeur in SA

I am also interested in some reviews of this ship. My wife and I are considering taking our first cruise out of Baltimore with our 3 year old son in Oct (although he will be almost 4 by time we sail).

We sailed on Grandeur OTS in 2006 out of Baltimore. Have since sailed on Enchantment OTS twice out of Baltimore(2011 & 2013). LOVE Enchantment's crew of Cap'n Gus, Cruise Director John Blair and his wife, Katrina (Activities Coordinator). We're hoping the crew on Grandeur are as pleasant and fun!

Grandeur will do its first sailing out of Baltimore this Friday (May 3rd.) I posted a request on their roll call wishing them a great cruise and requesting some reviews when they get back. Hopefully someone will comply, as so many of us are waiting for current reviews

Yes, I believe there was a thread a while back about the Grandeur and some CC members said they would post when they return. Can't wait!

Edit: Now that I think about it, they may be on the cruise that is bringing it back to Baltimore.

looking forward for new reviews & pictures of the Grand. We were on her out of Baltimore Oct. 2009 for a Jazz cruise.
Loved her then., and expect to enjoy her just as much as we did the Enchantment this past Feb.

This may sound like a silly question, but if we are sailing on Grandeur out of Baltimore to Bermuda, does it make a difference which side of the ship your cabin is on? You would see same things at sea, but is there a better side to be on when you are in port? I think the ship spends two days in Bermuda.

When we sailed from B'More to Bermuda back in 2006, the port side (left) would have had the better view of Bermuda. Assuming that's how RCL typically docks their ships in that port, that would be your best bet. Your travel agent may have better insight. Good luck!

sj25 the port of Baltimore is a very easy port to get to. It is right off the Ft McHenry exit. The parking is very safe and secure. Royal Caribbean passengers park on one side of the lot and Carnival parks on the other side.
Looking for some reviews on the Grandeur as we sail May 24th.
