7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 04, 2012
Ship: Serenade of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago
The ship was on the smaller side, but there was still plenty to do. The pool and upper decks got very crowded during the at sea day, so make sure to get up early if you want a spot at the pool. The crew was very friendly and helpful. The Cruise Director, Marc Walker, was amazingly funny and made the week fun and entertaining. Sadly, he's moving to the Monarch of the Seas ship in May 2012. The food quality in the dining room was excellent and the wait staff was superb. We got a free voucher for two to go to a specialty restaurant for booking with . We chose to go to Chops Grille and the choice was fantastic. The filet was excellent quality and very good. The wait staff was top notch at the restaurant. I would definitely spend the money to go to Chops Grille again. Overall we would cruise on this ship again.

Food and Dining

We didn't know about My Time Dining, so we ate at 8:30 PM every night. Make sure to learn about My Time Dining to be able to pick your dinner time when you want it. 8:30 was a little too late, but the other option was just too early. My Time Dining allows you to pick the time you want, so check into that.

We went to every show but one. The comedians were funny, and the other shows were great. We enjoyed the Royal Caribbean entertainment singers and dancers. They performed in two excellent shows, so make sure to take time to go.

We had a balcony room and it was spacious. We had plenty of room to unpack everything we brought (which was A lot).

Pros: Itinerary - lots of ports of call

Cons: Windjammer Cafe food could be better
