Overall, a clean and beautiful ship that seems to have everything to accomodate single, couples, and families.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The specialty restaurants are worth the little extra cost! The main dining and buffet area got a little boring as the week went on.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
At Portofino (specialty restaurant) they squeezed us in without a reservation and then doted on us! The staff at the steakhouse is a little bit put offish but the food makes up for it. In the main dining it's anything you want, they'll to whatever you request!!!!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Nice cozy layout for a big ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

We were at the back of the ship and the room was spacious and the balcony was very large- fit 2 lounge chairs and 2 regular chairs. We had room service for breakfast quite a few times out there.

I would suggest not going were all the tourists go, like penham's bay. The taxi's are very expensive so try to tag along with a group.

Redniut beach on Rodney's Bay is really nice. We took a catamarn to the Pitons but were very disappointed when turned back about 200yards away. Not sure it was worth it as our captian sailed us right up to them on the way home! That was amazing!
Don't Miss: The Pitons!

Of course the beach at Meghan's bay is wonderful! Beautiful and great snorkeling and swimming! Gets a little crowded so walk as far down for some peace and quite.

Orient Beach on the French side is lovely! A breeze always keeps it cool.

Pros: They do a great job of seating you with people for dinner that are compatible with you!

Cons: The theatre show is after the second dinner seating so you get back to your room very late.

Recommends Serenade of the Seas? Yes!
