Ship Facts: Serenade of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Serenade of the Seas Deck Plans
Serenade of The Seas February 2012
We have spent the last 4 years on RCI's Oasis or Allure and decided that it was time to go back to a a smaller ship with a more active itinerary. Serenade of the Seas did not disappoint. Although in places her age showed in stained hallway carpets Serenade is still a grand ship. As always the dining room service was impeccable however after 13 cruises on RCI i do wish that they would shake up the menu.

Serenade's crew were absolutely wonderful and accommodating. Everyone of them that we met were smiling and eager.

For you cigar smokers out their the cigar lounge is large and well used. It was even left open during the day so that i could sneak away and enjoy a stick while i read a book.

The Champagne Bar is always our evening kickoff location. While enjoying your favorite drink Hot and cold snacks are served nightly, something that we miss on the larger ships.

Due to the size of Serenade you do tend to bump into the same people a lot more which enables you to meet and get to know them.

After 4 years on the big ships we did find Serenade a little confining, especially at night. We missed the promenade. Its back to the big ships for us next year.

If you like beaches then the Serenades itinerary is for you. This group of islands is all about beaches and water sports. There are some off road jeep safaris available but reports from those who went ranged from so so to boring. Zip lining got rave reviews although everyone warns about the 60 foot drop to get down from the tree tops.

If you just want to enjoy the ship then stay on board and be pampered while everyone else is ashore.
