12 Night Mediterranean & Greek Isles (Barcelona Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 27, 2012
Ship: Serenade of the Seas
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 5 years ago

The ship is getting a total revamp in 3 weeks. The weather was cold, the seas were rough so there was very limited things to do poolside, as expected. However, the ship's crew could have increased the available activities indoors to make up for the bad weather. It seems med cruises are more for the elderly!

Food and Dining

ho hum. First three days of our twelve day cruise\, the food was bland. The selections got better by day four. The midnight buffet was the most lackluster event I have ever seen on RC cruise.
