Serenade of the Seas

August 2016 - Serenade of the Seas to Europe - Northern Europe

Breathtaking Beauty in the Norwegian Fjords

The best port on this cruise is the Geiranger Fjord, the last port of call in Norway.  The Serenade of the Seas ship is a smaller ship, so it is able to navigate the narrow passages deep inside the fjord.  The ship itself is pleasant, a little tired, but very clean and the staff are the best!  The dining options were great, we especially loved the Chops Grille specialty restaurant.  Our balcony cabin mid-ship was the perfect location.  They could use more activities during the day and in the evening, but overall, we enjoyed the shows they put on in the Theater and the Centrum areas.

SharonfromNH's Tips

Bergen, Norway - Do not take the Hop on Hop Off Bus! They do not have enough busses to take the thousands of passengers who arrive on cruise ships! People were stranded at stops along the way. The famous Fish Market is closed in bad weather, which we encountered. Nothing much to see there.
Geiranger, Norway - Make sure you take the bus trip to the top of Dalsnipper Mountain. We were in 6 inches of fresh snow in mid August! Breathtaking views on the ride up and down through 91 hairpin turns! Fantastic!!!
Copenhagen, Denmark - Fly in 2 days before the cruise leaves to explore this beautiful city. The Nyhavn area is the best to stay, close to everything. Take the canal boat tours - it was awesome! Great hotel was the Christian IV Hotel. Great breakfast included and within walking distance to Rosenberg Castle, a huge city park and also Nyvahn area with lots of restaurants.
Alesund, Norway - Be sure to do the Outer Islands Tour, connected by under water tunnels. Beautiful countryside views, tour a beautiful lighthouse and a 900 year old church in Geiske. We were so glad we booked this excursion!
Stavanger, Norway - Take the Rodne Lysefjord cruise for sure! The boat goes within a few feet of a massive waterfall - you get wet, but who cares! It was well worth it!!
Serenade of the Seas Serenade of the Seas - Purchase the Premium Beverage Package if you enjoy cocktails, as each mixed drink costs a minimum of $10 plus 18% tip. Wine by the glass is included for selections $12 or less, as well as soda. It was well worth it for us. Specialty dining package was offered for $70 each for 3 sittings.
