Frankly our cruise on the Grandeur in June ranks among the best cruises we've ever done.
I was on the Grandeur in October and had a great time. Granted it was my first cruise, but I thought things were in good shape. Of course, if you go looking, I'm sure you could find things here and there. The stone heads in the solarium looked like they should be spouting water, but weren't. I always saw staff cleaning or polishing so I think they take good care of things.
