December 2014 - Serenade of the Seas to Caribbean - Western
I took this cruise because it went where I wanted to go. It did that so I had a good experience. There were several things that could use improvement. The food quality did not seem up to par, and it wasn't just me who had this opinion. I heard numerous complaints from others on the cruise. In addition, it was not an enjoyable experience to stand in line past my scheduled dining time before the doors to the dining room were opened. On another dining room, the buffet did not open for breakfast until 7, so there were a lot of people waiting in line there, too. Although they decorated the centrum for the holidays, it still was not all that impressive. I enjoyed the live musical groups that I saw and appreciated the tropical duo that played "island" tunes out by the pool. The pool bar staff left something to be desired. I would tend to purchase the drink of the day and I was overcharged a time or two when they rang it in wrong. I just don't like to bother with negative experiences like that while on vacation, so I wouldn't take the cruise again. I'd try another way to go where I wanted to go.
