My partner and I have cruised on RCCL three times in the past and will be on Grandeur for the third time on 9/1. We have always been treated with courtesy and respect by staff, fellow cruisers, straight or gay. Through the boards last year we were able to get together a table of ten for dinner and enjoyed each others company. We still keep in touch with some of them. We particularly like the size of Grandeur, not too big and not to small, easy to navigate around the ship. We found Mariner to be a great ship but too large for our tastes. We have always had a balcony and enjoy the privacy. Our travel agent got us upgraded to a junior suite on our first RCCL cruise and now we're hooked. We will be in an aft js
again. Hope the hurricanes leave us alone!
