Recommends Serenade of the Seas? Yes!

OK. Bands playing around the ship were good. Evening shows were so-so. The best one was the comical juggler.
Children's Programs
My children did not get involved with the activities on board. Not sure why...
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Excellent evening meals in the main dining room and at the buffet. great selections. Had lunch at Portofina's one day and it was excellent.
Cabin / Stateroom
Excellent. Very big stateroom with an extra large balcony. The sleeper sofa was huge for our two teenage children.
Service and Staff
Excellent. Captain Michel is excellent.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Beach very convenient to ship so you don't need to go far to swim and rent see-doo's.
Castries, St. Lucia
Beautiful, mountainous island. Taxi cab drivers are very pushy and don't leave you alone outside the port so be careful.
Frederiksted, St. Croix, U.S.V.I.
Do not book the "Hotel on the Cay" Excursion. Far away and the most UNFRIENDLY bartender in the Carribean. Plus, they nickel and dime you for an umbrella, snorkel equipment, a raft to float on. You only get one "free" drink.
Bridgetown, Barbados
The Tiami Catamaran and snorkel was great. Swam with the sea turtles!

St. John's, Antigua
We had our best excursion ever on this island. It was called the "Antiguan Crusoe Island Escape." Amazing in all regards. Small private island with lunch, snorkel equipment, and drinks included.
