My husband and I recently returned from our 27th cruise - a very relaxing 7-night Caribbean cruise aboard the Serenade of the Seas R/T from San Juan, Puerto Rico. Great itinerary, terrific ship, and wonderful food and service.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food was good with great presentation and the service was excellent. There are also two alternative restaurants on board - Chops Grille and Portofino - that require an extra charge but are well worth it.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
The production shows were excellent, however, we've seen better entertainers on previous cruises.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Great staff and service.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The Serenade of the Seas is a beautiful mid-sized cruise ship that's "user friendly" with loads of amenities, lovely public areas, comfortable cabins, and friendly staff.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our outside cabin on deck 3 was very comfortable especially since Royal Caribbean has recently upgraded the bedding. We slept like babies!

Take a tour to see the Pitons or for the more adventurous hike to the top. Great golf too at St. Lucia Golf Club.

Go snorkeling to see the lots of fish and sea turtles or golf at Barbados Golf Club.

You must take a short cab ride to some of the beautiful beaches on the far side of the island opposite the cruise ship dock in St. John's. Lots of water sports activities, gorgeous white sand, and palm trees!

Philipsburg has come a long way in the past 25-years. . .there's a great boardwalk with lots of fun shops and the beach here is absolutely beautiful. Great beach, lots of water sports activities, and lots of cute & fun restaurants. Be sure to try the local beer!
Don't Miss: Rent a wave runner from one of the vendors on the beach.

We had a great time golfing at Mahogany Run that allowed us to see more of the island and do a very "non-touristy" acivity. Fun course to play but watch out for the infamous 3-holes comprising "The Devil's Triangle."

Pros: Great ship, itinerary, food, and entertainment!

Cons: It ended all too soon!
