Nice ship, very clean, very well maintained.

Pros: itinerary, stateroom service, dining room service, ship

Cons: guest services, evening entertainment, disembarkation, choiceair services

Recommends Serenade of the Seas? Yes!

Evening activities were amatuer, not enough, or not long enough. Most other ships we've been on with other cruise lines have better activities and entertainment.
Food and Dining
Food was better than most other cruises we've been on. Dining room service was very good.
Service and Staff
Restaurant, Bar, stateroom service was excellent. Guest services desk staff was clueless and really no help. Getting off the boat and to the airport was a nightmare complicated by RC vendor who was more clueless than the RC staff! Don't waste time or money relying on RC to get you to and from the airport. Hire your own taxi and reduce the risk and stress of missing your flights.
Ship Quality
Nice boat. Better than any others we've been on.
Cabin / Stateroom
our stateroom attendant was best we've ever had on any cruise line.
Castries, St. Lucia
Went to Rodney Bay Beach. just an average beach at best even though it's hyped by everyone on the ship and by the taxi drivers.
Don't Miss: Not sure. Look for other more remote and less busy beaches than Rodney Bay
Frederiksted, St. Croix, U.S.V.I.
Take a cab to the Renasaince Resort at Carombola! This was a very chill beach experience.
Don't Miss: Carombola beach
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Really got no help from cruise line to know what to do here. We were there on a Sunday only to find out shopping was limited as hours were reduced and many stores were closed. It would have been nice to know this before getting off the ship. Thanks for nothing RC!
Don't Miss: Go to the beach!
St. George's, Grenada
Grab a taxi and take a tour of the island. Got to check out the spice operations and Annandale falls. Worth it to drive up by Fort Frederick to get a photo looking down on the island and your cruise ship.
St. John's, Antigua
Nicest water and beaches on the cruise.
Don't Miss: Have to see the beautiful powder blue water at the beaches here!
