5 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 18, 2010
Ship: Serenade of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ship was about 7 years old but you could not tell. We spent time in many areas (dining rooms, lounge areas, coffee shop and pool area) and all of the them were very clean and updated. The balcony stateroom was spacious. We had been on a cruise before and that cruise ship paled into comparison to this one.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food in the main dining room was great. The food in the buffet areas was pretty good but the deserts could have been better.

The shows were good but not great. I was expecting a little more. They had a movie theatre but it would have been good if they were playing updated movies (Just coming on DVD or still in Theatres).

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
The ship staff was very friendly and helpful. The room stewart was very accomodating and always asked if we needed anything. The waiters and assistant waiters were really friendly, efficient and accomodating.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The common areas were bright and airy. There were balconies up to level 12 that looked down on the Centrum. The Crew used the Centrum area to include all guests into parties that they had a couple of nights.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The balcony room was great and had a nice sitting area. The bathroom was a little small and the room did not have a flatscreen TV (small 19" standard TV).

We went to the beach when we were at this port. The weather was great and the water was nice and warm.

Pros: The Cruise ship was very nice, clean and modern.

Cons: The shows were good but not great.
