Serenade of the Seas

October 2016 - Serenade of the Seas to Canada, New England, New York

Ship could be renamed 'The Hospitality of the Seas'

  Although we were sailing into a cooler area, the staff, the crew, the passengers and the citizens of the ports of call, more than made up for the weather with their warmth and friendliness. The captain went out of his way to ensure the comfort and safety of his passengers. We highly recommend this cruise line and our travel professionals.

Brilliance of the Seas

October 2015 - Brilliance of the Seas to Canada, New England, New York

A perfect fall cruise.

An enjoyable cruise to four friendly ports. Spoke to many fellow passengers on the trip and virtually all of them were pleased. Have been on a dozen cruises and can't recall one that didn't have someone complaining. Have already booked similar cruise for next fall.

Liberty of the Seas

May 2015 - Liberty of the Seas to Caribbean

RCL appears pay attention to customer's comments.

This was our second cruise with Royal Caribbean and we have already booked a third for this fall. We have done ten other cruises on three other lines and we find that RCL is equal or superior in virtually all the important categories. After our last RCL cruise, out of Bayonne on the Explorer of the Seas, we gave RCL good marks, but did complain that their debarkation process was slow and arduous. This trip however, the process was far improved and smoother than at the Manhattan terminal. The Liberty of the Seas is a very large, stable ship and the ride was outstanding. The staff was excellent and we were extremely impressed with our waiters. If we were asked to find any negative aspect for this trip, it would probably be that our time in the ports of call seemed shorter than usual, and although it didn't affect us, several of our fellow travelers seemed disappointed.

Norwegian Breakaway

January 2015 - Norwegian Breakaway to Caribbean - Southern

Loud praises for Norwegian Breakaway

We always enjoy Norwegian and their freestyle cruises. We have been on the Breakaway before and have recommended it. Our only reason for withholding our usual five star rating for this trip is that the decibel levels at both the outdoor and indoor venues have been significantly increased. While discussing this with friends, during disembarkation, several others in line agreed. The accommodations, service, and food were excellent, as usual. Senior staff were particularly courteous and would inquire as to our satisfaction. When my wife made a casual observation regarding our room, the change was made before we returned that evening and a tray of hors d'oeuvres, with a note, were delivered the next day.

armandjr's Tips

Serenade of the Seas Serenade of the Seas - Be aware that the Park Cafe on deck 11, in the Solarium area is open late for an evening snack or dessert.
Norwegian Breakaway Norwegian Breakaway - Nerissa at the Garden Café makes the best crepes at sea, and is charming while doing it.
Brilliance of the Seas Brilliance of the Seas - The cinema is small, if you really want to see a popular movie, arrive about 15 minutes early and if you have a back problem, bring a pillow or cushion, the seats can be uncomfortable.
Liberty of the Seas Liberty of the Seas - If you are coming from New England, be aware that you must cross the Hudson River and you would be well advised to take a limo or bus. On our trip down, the George Washington Bridge was tied up for hours and the Bayonne Bridge was closed for repairs. Fortunately, our bus driver got us there on time.
