a cruise on a nice ship

Sail Date: April 23, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Ship was beautiful and well run both by seafaring and passenger care staff.
Even in a force 6 wind, ship was very stable which was great but sort of disappointed my wife and myself - we wanted more of the "at sea" experience!

Pros: whole experience

Cons: tipping angst

Recommends Serenade of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Finishes were beautiful and could see considerable attention to detail everywhere. Well laid out too.
Food and Dining
We are not really into food but were very pleased with the wide selection of dishes. Loved the meuseli for breakfast, very smooth.
Cabin / Stateroom
Very well designed use of the space. We did not feel cramped. Decor and finishes good.
Service and Staff
Very friendly and ready to help at every turn. Noticed they kept on an even keel even when passengers behavior to the waiters was incorrect.
Basseterre, St. Kitts
Liked the place and people very much. Felt safe.
Don't Miss: Railway trip.
Bridgetown, Barbados
OK, nothing special - sort of commercial place around the dock and the island tour we took did not reveal too much exciting. Would not bother again but nice as a one off experience.
Don't Miss: Submarine trip to the reef.
Roseau, Dominica
LOVED the island. Much more than we were led to believe - LOVED the rain Rain forest trip up to the emerald pool. Drive round island was most enjoyable. Lovely vistas. Disappointed we were not offered trip to Fort Brimstone - no pre literature we received mentioned it.
Don't Miss: Probably rain forest, see the abundance of vegetation, and fort brimstone.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Plenty to do and nice island. We took a trip on a "tall ship" which was not as we were led to believe but everyone was friendly enough. Would not recommend that trip though. Liked the streets and shopping areas.
Tortola, British Virgin Islands
OK but a bit of a slow start. Not much going on there, is there? Would not go again.
