If you're looking for an entertaining, relaxing vacation, look no further. This cruise was We cruise about every other year as a couple, so when our friends and we decided to go together, we were really excited to share our past experiences.  It was all we hoped for, and in fact cruising with friends was even more fun!  It was very convenient to park and depart from New Orleans. From the boarding to shore excursions, everything on the Serenade went smoothly.   The crew, entertainment, and especially the food were magnificent.  We have always enjoyed cruising, but it was fun to watch "newbies" discover all the benefits of cruising.  All the ports were welcoming with neat excursions, especially Cozumel's Salsa & Salsa experience.  We personally don't like "My Time" dining.  We enjoy building a relationship with the dinner servers, so we won't do that again.  The only one improvement: we should have booked a 14 day cruise! 7 days wasn't enough!  We would repeat this cruise again, especially on the Serenade and will definitely cruise Royal Caribbean again.  Oh! I don't want to forget the great fare we got from "" better price anywhere, including the week before departure.  It was easy to book and we received excellent service from our Travel Agent, Becky Mulvey.

Winjammer food was the best on any cruise we've taken.
