My husband and I cruised on Grandeur in January 2008 and we were not overly impressed. We have cruised with RCC on the Sovereign of the Seas 3 times before, and we may have been a little spoiled on "our ship". The Grandeur seemed to be an older ship... we could see paint chipping in some places. Also, we could feel the ship rocking much more than on the Sovereign. There was not a chocolate buffet, but from reading some of the older posts, you will see that may have become the norm on the shorter cruises. Also, the food was not as good in my opinion.
Now, that being said... We had a wonderful cruise and the staff was very nice and attentive. Besides, any day on a cruise beats a day at the office.
