7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 31, 2011
Ship: Serenade of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago
The ship Serenade of the Seas is beautiful and was kept very clean. The staff and service was excellent. The food left a lot to be desired, especially in the Wind jammer Cafe (where meals are served buffet style). The ship had a lack of fun activities while cruising. We like to stay busy and entertained and there were not that many activities on board. The shops on the ship had limited products and the deals were not good at all. Some of the jewelry and watches on board looked like it came from the dollar store. Bottom line, we had a good time, but we have cruised with another cruise line that was more fun and a much better value for our money. The next time we will cruise with the " Fun Ships" again!

Lacked a variety of activities. We found ourselves board on more than one occasion and we only had one day at sea!

Take an excursion at this port, or go to the beach, not a lot of good shopping here.
