A great cruise

Sail Date: August 01, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Ship was great, staff were very good, lacking restaurant choices and charging for better variety was not very good idea. Excursions were booked most of the time and not enough variety. Kids activities not good. Overall the ship was great but some areas could be improved.

Pros: ship's atmosphere\, overall experience\, excursions too short too expensive for longer ones

Cons: kid's activities for early teans lacking\, not much variety for them.

Recommends Serenade of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Ship was a bit dated but good overall.
Food and Dining
quality of food was not that great in cafe's and sitting choices were not ideal since some of the better restaurants were closing at 9:30 pm and you were left with paying options.
Cabin / Stateroom
very good \, the bathrooms could be a bit bigger but everything was clean and well kept.
Service and Staff
some of the staff( waiting staff\, cabin help staff were great\, but public relation staff sometimes were difficult to work with.
entertainment could be improved. There were shows every night but sometimes the quality of the performers were more amateur than expected.
Children's Programs
Not very good. I had an early teen with us but I did not see much activities for him. Most of the activities even for older teens was to get them in a room and let them talk to each other.
