Serenade of the Seas Cruise Review by patriciatogher: Wonderful trip.
Overall Member Rating
We recently did a cruise with RC to celebrate our 40th wedding annniversary. From start to finish we thoroughly enjoyed it. The attention to detail was amazing and everything went very smoothly. The staff were all very friendly and made you feel quite special. I liked that they would call you by name when getting on and off the ship.
The food was very nice and plenty of it in several different restaurants. The entertainment was fairly good and the aerial acts in the Centrum were spectacular. There was something for everybody to do and plenty of places for sunning and relaxing. Plenty of sun loungers (except on sea days) and towels supplied. The weather was hot all the time but you could always find a shady spot if you wanted. We booked 2 short tours (4/5 hours) which were very good. One to the Accropolis in Greece and the other to Santorini. Both tour guides excellent and we had a very enjoyble trip both times. Other days we just did our own thing and got the shuttle buses More into the port town.
Our stateroom with balcony was fine but a little tight on space. We had to use the arm chair and coffee table to hold the suitcases. Plenty of wardrobe space and shelves and bathroom perfect. Everything was spotless and room cleaned twice a day. Our cabin attendant Kenneth was so nice and helpful and the towel folding at night was a lovely touch.
We enjoyed the evenings in the different bars and the theatre and casino. Used the hair salon twice and also had a pedicure. Very pleased on both occasions but was pressurised into buying products I really didn't want at very inflated prices every time I went. The products were in bags and handed to me as I left.
All in all this was a very memorable trip and we will definitely be looking to cruise again.
If you eat in the Windjammer it takes a bit of organisation to get your food, a drink and find a table before food goes cold but it can be done. We learnt as we went along. Less

Cabin review: 8542
Room was spotless with plenty of wardrobe and shelf space in both room and bathroom. Linen and towels changed daily. Balcony small but adequate. Not very private - we could see into balconies on both sides of us. Little tight on space in the room. Nowhere to put suitcases so we used coffee table and armchair. Bed very comfortable as was linen and pillows. Shower lovely and powerful. Could do with more sockets maybe.
Excellent introduction to Roya...
A very enjoyable experience
