Great fun!

Sail Date: March 28, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We had a ball on the excursions and came back each night to sit on the balcony to relax away from the crowds. Saw so many lovely things and had a wonderful trip!

Pros: It was great to sit back and enjoy the cruise and hand responsibilities over to staff.

Cons: Towels left on lounge chairs and not knowing if they were truly available or not.

Recommends Serenade of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Older ship, but still clean and well kept. Like the newer larger ships better though where the shops are all more centrally located.
Food and Dining
Sometimes it good to have good old home cooking.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our in room speaker didn't work so we could never hear the captains or cruise directors comments unless we opened the stateroom door.
Loved Caribbean Fusion!
Service and Staff
Great people who are available for whatever you need, wherever! And they do it with a smile.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Loved the open markets in Marigot. Make sure you ask where to go to the restroom because if can cost you over a dollar if you use the one at the mall.
Don't Miss: Orient Beach has the most beautiful colored water. We went to the clothed portion and swam in the rolling waves. Was great!
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Magen's Bay is beautiful and like swimming in a dream. Best bahama mama drink I ever had was made in the little bar/restaurant there.
Don't Miss: Don't Miss Magens Bay
Bridgetown, Barbados
Took a boat that turned out to be somewhat of a let down after a great catamaran ride the other day. The beach was rocky until you got into the luscious white sand, then the waters were wonderful.
Don't Miss: Swim with the sea turtles! What beautiful creatures!
Castries, St. Lucia
Took a bus tour and saw the lush lands which included banana plantations, rain forests, botanical gardens, the sulfery volcano. Then boarded a boat for the remainder of the tour. Nice day.
Don't Miss: The Pitons
St. John's, Antigua
Make sure you take a catamaran ride to see the many beaches. We went on the Mystic and had the best time ever. A1 boat, A1 staff and A1 lunch aboard.
Don't Miss: Snorkeling on the reef!
