7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 21, 2010
Ship: Serenade of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ship is nice enough and well maintained. The staff are all pleasant and made our trip very pleasant. The entertainment wasn't the best. We always go out of our way to make all the shows and we were disappointed many nights. It wasn't bad, just not great. The food was also mediocre. The food was boring and not well seasoned, particularly the fish. Thanksgiving dinner was beyond uninspiring and really made me wish we had stayed home. This is our 3rd Thanksgiving cruise and we never said that before! I would not take this cruise again.

Bajans are not friendly to tourists. This is my third experience with them and heard the same from all other cruisers. They do not like cruisers! Brighton Beach -a recommended beach is next to a rum factory--$6 to get you there & $10 to let you in---stay away--there are much better beaches! Do your homework before you got there. It makes it easier to negotiate.

Went to Darkwood beach. A beautiful quiet beach.

Take water taxi to beach--$6 round trip. Great deal on beach rentals--6 cushioned chairs/3 umbrellas and 6 beers--$25 dollars!

Love the people!!
Don't Miss: The zip line adventure in the rain forest. Great staff and real safety minded! Great value. It was the cheapest of all the zip lining offered in all the Islands.
