We spent the night before the cruise at the Hampton Inn in Coconut Creek, FL (about 20 min from the pier). Parked the car at the Park n Go (Fantastic service), boarded about 1030 with no issues. Luggage was in our room (3522) at about ... Read more

I actually really like this ship and some of the staff cared but the dining is pathetic. The food in the Windjammer is about the worst I have ever seen on a cruise ship and the formal dining room isn't much better. Many of our entrees were ... Read more

We just got back from this cruise. I would not recommend this ship to anyone. The food was really bad. It took forever to get the food and then it was cold. There was not enough entertainment on this ship. Costumes were really bad. They ... Read more

We made Diamond Plus on this 10 night cruise, so we have been on a lot of cruises with Royal Caribbean. However we found that this was one of the worst we have ever taken. The food was mediocre at best in both the Windjammer and the dining ... Read more

Pre-Cruise: We stayed at the Hyatt Place on 17th Street. Very convenient to shopping and restaurants. They have a shuttle from FLL and we also took their shuttle to the port ($7 pp) We have stayed here previously and it is very nice. ... Read more

This was our first real cruise (we sailed previously on a 2-night Bahamas with Celebration) but I guess we thought we should jump in head first. Ship: The serenade is an absolutely beautiful ship and for our cruise it was even ... Read more

This trip was actually two different cruises - one 11 day, and one 10 day to the Southern Caribbean. Luckily, other that beginning and ending of both in Ft Lauderdale, there were only two "repeat" ports. RCI just doesn't do LONG ... Read more

We love cruising and like to try different class ships. We've been on the mega-ships (Oasis class, etc.) and the smaller such as The Jewel & Rhapsody. We chose the Serenade because of the ports & time of year...and it was a ... Read more

Sailed with my daughter who is 20. We got to the port around 10:30 and had the easiest embarkation...we were on the ship by 11:30. Our cabin was 9512 (balcony) forward and our cabin attendant was Doris who was super sweet and attentive! ... Read more

We returned Friday from a 21-day b2b on the Serenade of the Seas. Our primary purpose was relaxation, and that we did. We do most of our cruising on Royal and Celebrity, both large ships and smaller ones and were very pleased with these ... Read more

The re-positioning cruise from Quebec City to Fort Lauderdale was lovely for the different areas visited and the tremendous fall colours (which were late this year and just in time for us). Really, if you are looking for a unique cruise ... Read more

If you are considering a first time cruise with RCI, buyer beware. RCI said they could get us a great airline ticket from Seattle to Quebec City. What we got was three segments starting out in the morning and arriving at Quebec City at ... Read more

thank goodness for good weather and beautiful foliage because the ship had many shortcomings especially a lack of enough entertainment after dinner and shows. Nothing to do on the night that clocks were put back. Very poor tv programming. ... Read more

This was standard Royal Caribbean fare. We have 137 nights and it is our most frequented cruise line. The junior suite is like all others. Food in the Windjammer, edible but uninspired. We mostly eat in the specialty restaurants, ... Read more

I would have rated this cruise a 4 instead of a 3 if it weren't for the crazy, mixed up My Time Dining. I chose the cruise for the itinerary and it was wonderful. The weather was also wonderful which made up for the lack of fall ... Read more

This was our first RCI Crown & Anchor member cruise and first Radiance class ship. The fellow cruisers were so wonderful and there was a lot of interaction, probably because of it being a member cruise. However, I think the size of ... Read more

This was supposed to be a cruise to see the fall foliage, but the weather had been so warm leading up to the cruise that the trees were still green. I guess that is a good enough reason to repeat this cruise someday. We arrived in ... Read more
