March 7, 2009 Southeran Caribbean Cruise - Great Experience
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
On Saturday, we got to the Ship early (Around 10 AM) & they came out around 11:00 AM and checked our bags. After dropping the bags off at the ship, we took a Taxi back down to Old San Juan and was able to explore the city at our leisure. We went back to the Ship at 3:00 PM and was by the pool by 3:15. Check in was quick & simple.
The Cruise took us to St. Thomas, St. Maarten, Antigua, St. Lucia, & Barbados. Photos from the cruise can be found here: More http://www.kodakgallery.com/ShareLanding.action?c=dept8g5.1qrimizd&x=0&h=1&y=-v421lp&localeid=en_US.
Overall the experience on the ship was great. The food served in the main dining room (Breakfast & Dinner) was out standing. The Buffet lunch in the Windjammer was good. But like buffet food anywhere, it's lukewarm and you need to be there when they 1st set it out. As with all of our cruises with RCCL, the service is always impeccable, and just makes the cruising experience that more enjoyable. The room, was an inside cabin, near the front of the ship, just under the theater. So if you went to bed early, you got to hear the 10:30 production. Other than that, the room was suitable for our needs.
Overall, we would sail again on the Serenade of the Sea. The staff, entertainment and the ship made this an excellent cruise. Less
Cabin review: Q3509 Interior Stateroom
The cabin was a place to sleep, shower & Change your clothes. Other than the sleeping part (under the theater or very close to it) which was very noisy on some nights, it did those functions well.Read All Interior Stateroom (Q) Reviews >>
