7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 24, 2009
Ship: Serenade of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple

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.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
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.

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.
