9 Night Southern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 14, 2015
Ship: Serenade of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 7176
Traveled As: Family (older children)

There is no stern elevator or stairs EXCEPT for the crew, It is over 200 yards to the center elevators, one of which did not work the whole cruise. Getting an elevator during peak times was nearly impossible without a VERY LOT of patience. The many people in wheelchairs and scooters and all the people with them were given priority in every line. Why? They are sitting down!

The crew and service was great but the ship not passenger friendly.
