Fantastic itinerary visiting Honningsvag, Olden, Tromso, Geiranger, Bergen, Alesund. Perfect ship for the trip too with great staff and really good service. We wanted to visit the North Cape and see the Midnight sun, but we experienced ... Read more

Some quick comments for our visit to Copenhagen, Stockholm, Tallinn, St. Petersburg, Helsinki, Bergen and Olso: with so many countries, my worry about currency was a waste of time. Credit cards are used virtually everywhere. Might want ... Read more

This was our third cruise with the Serenade; the two previous ones were in the Med, covering both the eastern and western parts of that beautiful region. In all we have now sailed 29 nights on the Serenade, more than any other ship in the ... Read more

We chose the Serenade of the Seas because of the port of calls. We sailed from Copenhagen to Stockholm, Estonia, St. Petersburg, and Helsinki. Overall we had a real nice time. The ship is a little older but has that throwback elegance ... Read more

I rarely bother to write reviews, but I felt that his one had to be done. We boarded in Harwich for a Baltic cruise, and then stayed on board for the TransAtlantic cruise to Boston. I combined my thoughts on this cruise with the cruise ... Read more

Wow what a fabulous cruise. I was a little worried having read some of the previous reviews that Seranade was past her best; that is definately not the case. We boarded quickly in Copenhagen and set off to explore. The ship is clean ... Read more

We aren't people who spend time in a hotel room, so basic rooms that are adequate are fine. Adequate being the operative word. The room consists of a large bed with two overhead beds. Yes the bunk beds are above the adults head so you are ... Read more

The Brilliance of the Seas cruise to the Norwegian fjords and Iceland was far below what we have come to expect and appreciate from RCL. The ship looks "tired" and well worn, with very dirty areas seen as the glass elevators ... Read more

Unfortunately we never anticipated the huge numbers of bored and badly behaved children that would prove to be the downfall of this cruise. We had decided that this was not a child friendly itinerary and how right we were. Unfortunately ... Read more

Went on a cruise July 12 -19 with Serenade of the Seas Baltic Cruise, and I must say RCL is slipping. I did the BOGO special, however they over charge you for everything: Mixed drinks $12.50 (They were $6.75 to $8.50 a year ago), Sundries ... Read more
