1st time cruise and it was enjoyable and would do it again.
Pros: The Serenade of the Seas was a very nice ship. Loved the glass layout and staircases. Smooth sailing except when headed to Curacao. The ship director was very good. Nightly Shows were enjoyable.
Cons: There were no activities for an 18yr old girl. She was not even allowed in the Teen center because she is considered an adult at 18, and the 18-20+ activites had older people (30-40yr olds) hanging there. Just what a parent wants a naive 18yr old girl hanging out with grown men. Luckily she finally met another 18yr old girl from UK she could hang out with.
Activities seemed to overlap each other and you couldn't participate in more than one.
Balcony cabins don't allow 3 people in one room, so you overpay for only 1 person in a state room.
Too much spanish music in the Centrum.
Dining menu: was repetitive and not a lot of variety. Food all tasted the same, after the 3rd day i was tired of the dining menu. I would eat the buffet at More Windjammer and it was more satisfying. Less

Cabin review: Serenade of the Seas Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom Deck 7 8626
1. Nice balcony, cabin good size but hey i'm not paying for the suite as long as it had a balcony thats all that mattered. :) Closets were able to fit our luggage and our clothes. The little sofa bed seemed dirty and we could do without since it was mostly used to through our clothes on. Rugs need a bit of an upgrade.
