Great Staff

Sail Date: December 23, 2010

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The Serenade of the Seas is new enough and well maintained enough that it still presents well. The staff are great, though clearly a little on edge-- it's clear that management browbeats them to get top ratings on the guest surveys, and I don't like seeing people so afraid for their jobs. The dining room selections need a bit of work.

Pros: Great staff

Cons: Poor food selection

Recommends Serenade of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
The good news is they have several different food options for people with special restrictions. The bad news is that, for a vegetarian person, for example, most of the western style dishes were technically correct but very bland and uninteresting. The wife even wondered whether the minestrone came out of a chef boy r d can. Seriously. The one consistent exception were the curry dishes. Somwe just ate those all week.
Cabin / Stateroom
Would be nice to have a flat panel tv, but the room was fine.
