Wonderful Taste of Italy

Sail Date: August 01, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

I have been on larger Royal Caribbean ships which appeal more to my taste. This ship appeared much smaller since it did not have the large promenade of shops.

Pros: Ports of call

Cons: too many unsupervised children

Recommends Serenade of the Seas? No.

Ship Quality
Just average. Saving of deck chairs is ridiculous. You have to be on deck before 9 am to get a chair.
Food and Dining
I was very disappointed that lobster and filet carried extra cost. The choices of food was very average.
Cabin / Stateroom
My cabin appeared quite worn due to non-working refrigerator\, sagging couch and torn curtains.
Service and Staff
The entertainment and dining staff were superb. The stateroom staff was OK. I have been on previous ship with much shorter sailing where I was always greeted by my cabin stewart by name. That was not my experience on this ship.
There were a lot of activities and entertainment geared for couples. I am a solo traveler and was never able to find the activities for solo travelers.
Children's Programs
They are apparently poor because children took up majority of seats in lounge areas and pools. I would prefer an adults only area.
