Nice Ship and Great Itinerary

Sail Date: January 24, 2009

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Overall, I highly recommend this cruise for anyone looking for a nice winter break away from the snow. My wife and I selected this cruise based on the great itinerary which included the islands of St. Thomas, St. Maartin, Antigua, St. Lucia, and Barbados. We were both impressed with the overall condition of the ship and the excellent customer service on board the "Serenade of the Seas". On board, we chose a balcony room which was clean and well kept, however any room on a cruise ship seems very small at first. The food on the ship was well prepared and the variety was decent. Overall, we were happy with our experience.

Pros: Customer Service

Cons: All the Extra Fees Associated with a Cruise

Recommends Serenade of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
The main dining area (Reflections) is very elegant. The main buffet area (Windjammer) is a typical buffet style dining and the Seaview Cafe is a cool little spot for a mid day snack.
Cabin / Stateroom
Clean but small, recommend the balcony for those afternoon sunsets!
Entertainment
The shows did not really peek our interests, however the rock wall and gym were cool.
Service and Staff
Very friendly staff! Stop by for a drink at the Centrum Bar on the 4th Floor before dinner. Sugar Roy and Casanova are very entertaining.
Ship Quality
Nice overall layout, lots of natural light, and lots to do!
