This was our third RCI cruise, but our first since our daughter was born. So maybe taking our toddler on a cruise at the age of 2 and a half was not the brightest idea. She did great but I felt like we missed out on a lot of the activities and night time entertainment. The ship was smaller than expected, but beautiful as always. Our room on the 4th floor was about 50 feet from the center of the ship where dance parties were held. The door to our state room blocked out about 98% if the noise. When the crowd was screaming that was the only time I could hear the noise clearly. The staff was amazing. I realized how messy and inconsiderate people could be while watching the crew clean up after us. They didn't skip a beat picking up cups and dishes that were left in hidden corners throughout the ship. If they grumbled under their breath they hid it very well! Over all, we liked it so much we booked a 12 night cruise for next year while on board. Hopefully our daughter will get more out of the kids programs next year.

Pros: Food was great as usual, very attentive crew and patient while dealing with difficult people

Cons: Very few activities for toddlers under 3 years old. Scheduled times were difficult to get to while trying to do shore excursions during the day. Due to recent regulations, our daughter was not allowed to swim in the pools on board since she was not potty trained.

Recommends Serenade of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Little smaller than our previous cruise ships, but there were still places to hide and relax that were not crowded.
Food and Dining
Unlimited food almost 24 hours a day....does not get any better than that.
