I stayed on Deck Eight- Traveled out of Vancouver, Canada July 12, 2008.
The ship looked OK -But the aweful smell coming off the elevators smelled like raw sewage. My son's room smelled so bad I called guest services and reported the smell. He had to open his balcony window to keep fresh air coming in. We liked the Freedom of the Sea ship the best so far. This was our 6th cruise. Don't go unless you are assured the sewage smell is gone.

Pros: Easy boarding

Cons: Ship is small compared to other ships we have traveled

Recommends Serenade of the Seas? No.
