Great winter vacation on the Serenade of the Seas. All arrangements went smooth as we (two couples from North Alabama) took in New Orleans prior to departure on the Mississippi River. After a great day at sea enjoying food, scenery and shipboard entertainment we had more of the same at Key West, FL. Back on board we repeated the same routine plus the relaxing nights in our room. Our shipboard times were spent around the attrium entertainment, the auditorium entertainment and poolside entertainment. The nightly auditorium shows were absolutely fabulous - one of the few ships still providing a good live band. Also professional singers, dancers, gymnastics, worlds best ventriloquist in Ron Lucas. Next a day in Nasau, Bahamas where you walk and shop. Spent time at the Art Gallery. The next day was spent on Royal Caribbeans prive island Cococay. A 80 degree, breezy day on the beautiful beach where Royal Caribbean put on a fine grilled spread of burgers, hot dogs, chicken and all the trimmings. Some more island shopping on the way back the ship. Great shipride back to New Orleans and back to north Alabama where we missed two snow storms and an ice storm.
