Serenade of the Seas out of New Orleans

I hadn't been on a cruise since I was 18, so this was a nice break from working and Royal Caribbean allows for a complete week of relaxation. You don't have to do anything but "be there". The staterooms are wonderful and are kept up by the attendants who are super nice and make sure you have everything you need.The food was great, the servers at dinner are top of the line and the excursions are easy to book as well. The whole experience was low stress (none at all really) and I will be taking another one hopefully in the second half of the year. You really can't beat Royal Caribbean Cruises.

If you need anything or have any questions, don't hesitate to ask your room attendant. Also, if they do a great job, let them know. You get gratuity envelopes at the end of the cruise and can recognize outstanding service.
New Orleans, Louisiana
Have your passport/ID/birth certificate ready. The check-in process goes as quick as you allow it to.
Falmouth, Jamaica
Went to the Chukka Plantation. Try the Jerk was great.
George Town, Grand Cayman
We went to SeaGraves beach, which is free. $5 for a beach chair and you can stay there all day, or until your ship leaves haha.
Cozumel, Mexico
Check out Mr. Sanchos Resort. You will not regret it.


During the Cozumel stop, go to Mr. Sanchos all inclusive resort. All you can eat, all you can drink, beach access, cabanas, kayaking, snorkeling, and other great amenities. I had a blast there and it was well worth the money ($50+-)
