Grandeur of the Seas first took to the waves in 1996 and is one of the more intimate ships in the fleet at 74,000 tonnes, bringing mid-sized cruising to a destination near you. In 2012, Grandeur of the Seas underwent a $48 million revitalisation to bring her in line with the rest of the fleet. She now boasts a new entertainment area called the Centrum, with a five-story atrium as the backdrop for aerialist entertainment, a revamped Viking Lounge, and new restaurants, plus the new R Bar with cocktails and impromptu performances.
With so many things to do onboard, you wouldn't be sorry if you stayed aboard every day of your cruise! Try rock climbing on the vertical cliff-face high above the ocean, roll the dice at the Casino Royale, savour the food and drinks in one of the seven bars and lounges, or take a dip in the open-roofed Solarium Pool or one of six whirlpools.
Fitness is fully catered for in the gym, complete with treadmills, ellipticals, weights, and other exercise machines. Treat yourself to full spa services in the ship’s salon and day spa. You can also take part in group fitness classes and healthy living seminars.
Take in a Broadway-style show or visit one of the eight bars and lounges including the Latin-themed Bolero's lounge and the new R Bar—while the kids are occupied by the Adventure Ocean activities and clubs, or the new Royal Babies and Tots nursery.
New dining venues have been installed, including Giovanni's Italian and Izumi offering Asian fusion, Park cafe for lighter meal options, Chops Grille for the famous steakhouse experience, and the Chef's Table—an exclusive and intimate event co-hosted by the executive chef. The main dining room is still a formal favourite and the Windjammer buffet continues to provide delicious, informal meals for all.
Grandeur of the Seas boasts wonderfully airy and extremely well-appointed cabins, all tastefully decorated in soft, calming colours, so there’s always somewhere to relax after a tough day enjoying yourself. There are four main categories of stateroom: Suites, Balconies, Ocean View, and Inside cabins. All come with as standard:
· A sitting area
· Two twin beds or one Royal king bed
· Luxurious bedding
· TV, telephone, and safe
· Private bathroom with shower, vanity area, and hairdryer
