Bland and ho hum cruise

Sail Date: October 27, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Suite

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!

Pros: The Grand Suite Accommodations with Concierge service

Cons: Lack of activities on the ship.

Recommends Serenade of the Seas? No.

Ship Quality
Very clean
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.
Cabin / Stateroom
Oh\, definitely upgrade to suite. So worth the money.
Service and Staff
My favorite staff members were the housekeeping staff and the windjammer cafe staff. Always friendly\, always smiling.
Entertainment on this ship was LACKING!!
