Nice vacation by Candice1172

Overall it was a good vacation. But for a 10 day cruise the activities onboard were very limited and the port of Martinique was not welcoming. The people were unfriendly and they would not accept US currency.

RCL just can't seem to get it right. by Kirby318

We think that the service levels on Serenade was poor. Very few waiters ever approached us, so we had to go to bars for a drink. Waiters never came around with coffee/tea in the Windjammer during meals. There was no help in the Windjammer for the disabled. Food in Windjammer is mediocre, unless you like Indian Food; that was good. Eat your main meals in the Reflections Restaurant. The food was generally good but I've had better.

We had a great time, but Royal was lacking in some important areas. by gscottconsultin

We had a good time. We cruise a lot with Carnival and like them more than we did Royal. In particular we find that Carnival management staff in the casino is much more friendly, more likely to spring for a drink for customers, or even some goodies sent to the room. Disappointed with Royal doing none of the above though we were in the casino nine out of ten nights. One of us found the food choices to be lacking. Otherwise the boat was great, good stops, we had a good time.

The most relaxing, fun-filled, non-stressful cruise I have ever taken. Captain maneuvered the boat with perfection and kept us up-to-date on all details.

get the Thermal Suite package on the first day! it averages out to about $14/day per person which is absolutely worth it. Also, we really enjoyed the Evening Stretch class provided in the gym which was free & as challenging or as relaxing as you choose to participate.

Remember it's YOUR vacation, just because the ship is at port doesn't me you HAVE TO get off the boat. Do what works for you, if your 'my time' dining doesn't work, then change it. If service is bad, SAY SOMETHING to a manager. And if someone is great, recognise them. :)

When picking your stateroom, make sure there are no public areas above it . Deck 10 is where most of the suites are but unfortunately Deck 11 is where the pool, Windjammer, Park Cafe, the Solarium and the Spa are located. If you are a light sleeper, you'll be able to hear all the movements at night
