Great ship and great ports

Sail Date: April 09, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Balcony

I have been on many ships in the past and I found the layout of this one to be so streamlined and intuitive. This was an all around good trip. The food was good, the service was good, the ports were good. I would definitly go on this same ship again.

Pros: The design of the ship was really nice and the service was great

Cons: Skip the desserts

Recommends Serenade of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
The layout was great, the ship was very clean, the decor was classic and not cheesy.
Cabin / Stateroom
The pullout bed was a bit hard and of course the bathroom was tiny. The sink could use some better drainage. The balcony was a nice size and comfortable to sit and read or watch as we pulled into port.
Food and Dining
Everything was amazing except for the deserts and those weren't terrible as well just not as good as some other ships
Service and Staff
The waiters in the dining room were excellent. Everyone was very friendly.
Basseterre, St. Kitts
The beaches here are not that great and the taxi guys at the port will try to convince you to go to one place over another to get kickbacks from the beach bars. Don't bother here.
Tortola, British Virgin Islands
My friend visited the Baths and Virgin Gorda and she said they were amazing. We went to Brewers Bay and it was so nice and less crowded than Cane Garden bay. Keep an eye out for the passing cows and bulls on the roads!
Bridgetown, Barbados
Great beaches are close to the port and lots of fun activities available right on the beach.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Always excellent duty free shopping here and very convienent beaches.
Roseau, Dominica
Beautiful natural lush wildlife. We went to the Twin Falls and swam in the waterfalls. As long as you don't mind cold water it's amazing. Mero beach is a black sand beach with crystal clear smooth water.
