Nope, Tatiana's were brown/grey and Maria's were blue/grey. Anyway, that's what I heared.

Anyone else know it for sure which color the girl's eyes had?

That is the usual description. We don't know for sure, but we know that Marie had beautiful light eyes and Tatiana's were darker. Anastasia's were definitely blue.

I think all of the girls had light coloured eyes, of varying shades.

I've always read that Anastasia had the luminous blue 'Romanov' eyes, and the others had sort of grey-blue eyes of varying degrees of lightness.  Tatiana it seems had the darkest eyes, and she also had the darkest hair.

I believe both Nicholas and Alexandra had blue eyes, so their children would all have to have had blue eyes too, as blue is a recessive gene.  If Nicholas and Alexandra had inherited any brown eye genes to pass on to their children, their own eyes would have been brown, as brown dominates all other eye colours. So all of the girls must have had blue or blue/grey eyes, as there was no brown eye gene to pass on.  That's how you know if you're adopted or not; if both your parents have blue eyes and you have brown, you know they're not your parents! (That actually happened to my teacher; she told this to a class and one of the kids said he had brown eyes and his parents had blue...turned out he was adopted and he'd never been told- sad but true!)  

It's such a shame that we don't have coloured photographs, because then all of this could be cleared up!

Rachel's right, blue eyes are a recessive gene to every other kind of eye color. I know Nicky had blue eyes but did Alexandra? And is gray considered a shade of blue?

Woo! Just noticed I am now a GOD.  Not that I needed that status confirmed, but still.  ;D

I am pretty certain Alexandra had blue eyes; I've never heard of her being described as having dark eyes.

Grey is considered a shade of blue I believe.  So, with the presumed fact that N&A were both blue eyed, we can pretty much categorically say that all of the girls had eyes of varying shades of blue, including grey, as grey is a shade of blue.  But, if anyone wants to correct me on that, please do.  I am certainly no colour expert!

Gray is not really a shade of blue, but to make certain shades of color, blue may be added. Slate gray, for example, is made predominantly of blue and therefore has a slightly bluish tinge, while regular grey (like, elephant gray) is composed of equal amounts of red, green, and blue. In fact, if you mix any of the complimentary colors (blue and orange, red and green, yellow and purple) you will get gray. Light colored eyes in general are recessive, and it's not terribly unusual for parents with blue eyes to have kids with gray eyes.

Thank you both of you for the posts on eye color. I guess it means it IS possible for Tanya to have gray eyes, then!
