Good, Solid Transatlantic.: Serenade of the Seas Cruise Review by monkeyknuckles
Overall Member Rating
Good, Solid Transatlantic.
Now--about the crossing. The weather was spectacular, absolutely every day. The crew was spectacular, in every way. The passengers were all very well-suited for T/A cruising, nobody got in a hurry, everyone was nice and easy. Idyllic, and quite relaxed and homey. If you are looking for rowdy night life, T/A is not the way to go, as it's kind of like a Grand Hotel. The facilities More are there, but the synergies are moving at different rates, so achieving a critical mass for dancing and jumping up and down is a bit difficult to achieve. I had the time of my life, bonded with a great group of people who were absolutely delightful. That's the beauty of long hauls and taking the time to unwind and re-charge the batteries.
Embarkation was a breeze, Barcelona is easy. Get there early, get on first. Disembarking--Get up, get out, get off, tote your bags, no worries, no problems. Get there first with the most, and start the trip. If you get there in the middle of the crush, you get what you get. Serenade is a great ship, not too small, not too large. Amazing. Kudos to all concerned. Less
Excellent. Perfect for a single.
