May 2011 Serenade of the Seas Eastern Caribbean
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
My wife and I took this cruise with another couple. The ports of call were good, with St. Maarten and St. Lucia topping my list. RCI had lots of activities planned. The food was very good, and the dining room service was also very good.
I did not like how the smoking areas were set up on this ship. I am a non-smoker. At the Windjammer Cafe, one has to walk through one of two partially enclosed smoking areas to get to the outside seating. There were also partially enclosed smoking areas on the main pool deck, adjacent to the main deck area. I have no problem with allowing smoking, but I wish more was done to separate the smoking and non smoking areas of the ship.
The Quest event was a great time, and two comedy/variety shows I saw were very good. I thought that the musical/dancing shows, by the ship's talent and the visiting talent, were mediocre.
The Solarium pool area was great for cooling off after a day in the hot sun, and was very clean and quiet More (adults only).
Overall, this was a good experience and I am likely to sail RCI again. Less

I was happy with the size of the interior stateroom, compared to Carnival and Princess.Read All Interior Stateroom (K) Reviews >>
Port and Shore Excursions
Lots of shopping on both the French and Dutch sides of the island, and many areas are well kept.
I've been there once and I can already see that I could spend a whole week on just this island.
