7 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 28, 2015
Ship: Serenade of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 9580
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 3 years ago

We enjoyed the food, itinerary, & the overall cleanliness of the ship.  The dinning room service was excellent.  The buffet and bar service was very good, and we found all of the servers to be friendly and eager to please.  We were not prepared for the layout of the ship, which uses the Centrum area for most of the entertainment onboard.  This area is open to all decks and the sound carries into the cabins surrounding this midship area.  We had requested a cabin midship near the elevators, but had no idea there would be an issue with being able to hear the entertainment in our cabin.  There are corridor doors that can be closed (by ship staff), but this required a phone call and the response took some time.

If you want to go to sleep before midnight, you should ask for a cabin away from the Centrum area.  However, having the entertainment midship does make it exciting and accessible.


Food and Dining

The taste and presentation was great. Good choices and excellent service. We had a large table on deck 5 that accomodated our entire group and the waiters all went out of their way to make sure we had fun.

Ship Quality

The cabins all need renovations. We had 8 cabins and all the furniture and carpets were worn.

Cabin / Stateroom

Good size cabin & balcony, but the cabins all need renovations. The vanity had a large abrasion, the sink had a very large crack, and the shower was very small & needed repairs. The couch and carpet were worn & dingy.
