We cruised on the Serenade of the Seas from February 26th to March 7th. I had been on this site to see what people thought about the food/service and I must admit that I was kinda scared from reading many negative comments about how bad ... Read more

We had a great time on the ship. Staff were wonderful. Food was very good. Activities were plentiful although some of them staff did not show up for. Entertainment was standard. We enjoy Serenade and the staff that we have come to know. ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our 11 day cruise from Port Everglades. We parked at Park by the Ports car parking and got their shuttle, saving $ over the port parking. Getting on the ship was easy and quick, our inside cabins were a decent ... Read more

We had a very good time on this cruise but I attribute it to the group we were traveling with. The Serenade of the Seas is not a ship I would cruise again. The wood is very dark in the windjammer which makes it dark and uninviting. The ... Read more

We love RC. We have traveled on them extensively. This trip was a little disappointing. The rooms were in need of a little TLC, Room 8020. Curtains on the bottom of the slider door were none to clean. It seems like since the tips are ... Read more

Ft Lauderdale was cool, cloudy and windy. Our stay at the Best Western on Stirling in Dania was satisfactory, although the location of this hotel and its budget neighbours is not an asset. It is surrounded by very busy roads, with few ... Read more

My husband and I had a wonderful time on our vacation. It was, after all, a vacation. And while everything was very good, it wasn't Wow. Our cabin, 9520 was good. But the sliding door to the balcony was very hard to move and the ... Read more

We sailed on Serenade during their southern Caribbean cruise on January 25, was not a good trip. This ship has a lot of issues mostly stemming from that the ship’s facilities cannot handle the volume of passengers it carries. ... Read more

This was our 9th RCCL cruise but first one on a Radiance Class ship. The ship was well maintained and clean. We had an aft balcony cabin on deck 7. The balcony was large enough to have 2 lounge chairs and 2 upright chairs and a table. ... Read more

We are veteran cruisers, so we have many, many ships, cruise lines and destinations with which to compare cruises. With this background, I will say that our cruise on the Serenade of the Seas was about average. This is our experience on ... Read more

We sailed on back to back cruises on January 15th and 25th to the eastern and southern Caribbean. The ship itself is ok, but nothing wonderful. This is the size ship we prefer, not to big, not to small. I expected it to be in a little ... Read more

Everything was awesome. If you are like me, you are probably reading these reviews, having some second thoughts about the ship and / or the food. Well, I promised myself that I would write a fair review after my trip to give some real ... Read more

We are seasoned cruisers whom have sailed with most major lines over the past 11 years. We are in our late 50's and very active, preferring exercise over buffets (but love good food too!). We have learned with good experience, that ALL ... Read more

We've taken many cruises with many cruise lines (Celebrity, Disney, Princess, RCL, Carnival...) but this holiday cruise from December 2015 was very disappointing. The problems began upon arrival on the ship. The elevators were minimal and ... Read more

Out of 106 cruises that I've been on and being a diamond plus member on RC; worst cruise for food that I've ever been on. Entertainment was also bad but have had worse on old ships of Carnival. I know everyone is cutting costs but ... Read more

This was our second Christmas cruise and first for New Years. While the ship did an okay job with New Years, they totally lacked on Christmas. Only one Christmas tree on the entire ship. I just felt they lacked in the Christmas setting. ... Read more

We were very pleased with many things on this cruise but because we felt the food was not as good as it could have been we could not give an excellent rating. What we liked about the cruise was our cabin was roomy with a decent size ... Read more
