7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 16, 2006
Ship: Serenade of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 11 years ago
Ship was huge. Spend the extra bucks for a balcony in the rear of the ship, its well worth it, you get two lounge chairs and two regular chairs and a table and awsome sunsets right from your room. It is perfect for days at sea so you do not have to fight for a lounge chair by the pool. Dinner at Chops was great, very intimate service and if you like filet its so tender you can cut it with a fork and I had no problems getting it rare. Windjammer Cafe got old around the fifth day with the same food. Service was great but you will run into a few with an attitude. I went on this cruise a week before Christmas so i got pretty annoyed with the Christmas music by the pool it was the same 4 reggae christmas songs in a loop when the band was not playing. If you stop at St. Lucia just stay on the boat the port is in a very sketchy area, take advantage of the boat when nobody is on it. Other than that it was a great time. Would sail again with them.

bed was a little tough they push two beds together to make a queen and it then has a bar in the middle so be careful, make sure you get a balcony
