7 Night Bahamas (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 08, 2014
Ship: Serenade of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 9530
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 4 years ago

Parking was uncovered, gravel and unmarked. No baggage porters. No instructions. Cost still $112.00.

Beverages $7.00, plus tip, plus tax.

No irons or steamers allowed. No laundry rooms or ironing boards. Pressing offered for a fee.

On board photos were $20.95 for standard 12 x 10, but photos were 5 x 7 inserted in a 12 x 10 photo that had borders of Royal Caribbean photos of the ship.

The nightly show for the late seating dinner at 8 pm, was at 6:30, which defeated the whole purpose for eating late. I never saw a late show because of this.

This was my 37th cruise but last on Royal Caribbean.
