At the end of the day, I believe we would do it again. In the future we will consider planning some kind of excursions. At lease get off the boat to have lobster. The big item I love about this ship is the Solarium ... it's one of my favorite places to hangout.

loved our cruise experience EXCEPT for an excursion to Cadillac Mountain in Acadia Nat'l park. This excursion should have been cancelled due to the fog. Instead, we went up this mountain, saw nothing since visibility was zero. In fact, we almost had a collision with another bus coming down the mountain as we climbed the mountain twice! When we complained to the shoreex desk after the excursion, we were told that Serenade had no responsibility here. It was the responsibility of the excursion company. Amazing to us that Serenade did not step in and cancel the excursion refunding out money. NOT!!! Do they mean to say that the safety of their passengers is up to the excursion company only??

Haven't cruised in over five years and boy was I surprised to see how much Royal. Caribbean had slipped in the excellence of service, attention to detail and quality. Definitely not as impressive as I remember. We had fun but the cruise was just okay.

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
