Ship Facts: Serenade of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Serenade of the Seas Deck Plans
Wonderful Serenade

This Cruise is perfect for anyone wanted to visit lots of amazing places in a very short space of time.

The Ship herself is beautiful, she's not a floating block of flats like the Epic or Carnival Legend, she's all curvy and the fantastic glass Centrium adds to the impressive look.

MOST of the staff are lovely, we had the best room steward called Sheddy, nothing was too much trouble and he even taught our 11 year old how to make each of the towel animals he left us each night. We were greeted with his lovely smile every morning and he always seemed interested in what we had done that day.

In the main dining rooom the food is very good, the seafood dishes are cooked to perfection, steak should be eaten at Chops or Giavanni's where they are carefully prepared rather than mass produced and chicken is usually left on the bone but on the whole the food in the main dining room was very good. Our Waiters were excellent, we had Ashutosh as our main Waiter and Jose as our assistant Waiter, we could not have had better. If you can't choose between two meals - you get both! If you really liked something (the Calamari) they just keep bringing out more plates until you say " Nooooooo!"

The pools are hardly used and it is only kids that seem to be in them. They are salt water.

The pitch and put is great fun and really well maintained, a bit of a pain if you get a large group infront as a big queue builds up but just enjoy the fabulous views all around and you're soon on again!

The only negative I would say about the whole trip was that the same singers sang in the Centruim every day, in our case it was a miserable voiced lady and a strange spainish sounding band, they were really loud and you couldn't sit and talk with friends while listening to the music as it was just too loud.

Other than that FABULOUS time - I'm so jealous of anyone going on their Cruise on the Serenade soon. :-)
