June 2015 - 11 Night Arctic Circle (Copenhagen Roundtrip) Cruise on Serenade of the Seas
I loved the trip, the ports were great, the ship excursions were led by great guides but the shortfalls are the following;
1-limited facilities to eat and especially likmited seating in the windjammer(buffet). the dining room called reflections had limited hours and the small park café had little to choose from
.2-the entertainment was notably lacking in the main venue, the male leads were atrocious, and some of the shoes show a steady stream of people leaving. the entertainment in the centrum was vastly superior, especially the little 4 person ensemble.
3-staff was generally friendly and courteous, but there were some people particularly in the windjammer who looked like they were doing you a favor by clearing a table.
4- I would recommend most of the ports, but would not recommend the ship, and based on this experience I would not recommend royal carribbean.
I have sailed on 3 other cruise lines, and at this point I would go back to celebrity, they are a notch above.
