Some information on Grandeur of the Seas

The Royal Grandeur of the Seas is one of the Royal Caribbean International cruise line ships and belongs to the vision class. It is one of the Royal Caribbean's older vessels being in service since 1996. Bit when you look at the ship, there is generally no tell-tale sign of its age, which shows how well maintained the ship is. The elegant public spaces like dining room that is inspired by the Art Deco, the six-story atrium, or the flashy Palladium Theater makes it impossible to determine the age of the ship.
