Just wondering if Serenade of the Seas is s bad as what I have been reading. We are leaving out of New Orleans in a couple of weeks. This will be my first with RC we have cruised with Carnival 5 prior times and Celebrity once always had great service and food, weather not always. So hoping its better then posts have said.

4 of us just came off 16 nights on serenade. We are still paying for it. Got horrendous coughs 2 days after we boarded. By the time cruise was over half the ship was coughing. We all went to our own doctors/hospital. Diagnosed as probably a serious bronchial issue. We felt the ship was dirty when we boarded. Entertainment was good and bad. Lots of ship things were "guest guided". Never had that on carnival. Food was acceptable. The best thing on serenade was the captain. Had more things we did not like, than liked. Carnival rules the seas!

Everyone has different experiences on any particular cruise. It does pay, though to take notice if all reviews are bad.
