It was a cruise we have both wanted to do for some time. There is so much to do during sea days and all staff are very friendly and helpful. The ports of call were excellent and appeared to get better each with the final stop in Gerainger ... Read more

The ports of call were great. The weather was cool, some snow but no rain for the 10 days. The ship is in need of upgrading. Activities were just average, entertainment average. The American Dream and Russian dance troupe were the best ... Read more

It looked like a good deal price-wise for the first cruise of the year to the Baltics. The food in the main dining room was pretty good in the evening except for the desserts. The next to last night they exceeded themselves with offerings ... Read more

My husband and I chose this sailing due to the itinerary, covering major Scandinavia cities and St. Petersburg. We flew into Copenhagen 2 days before sailing to explore the palaces and museums. Embarkation took close to 45 minutes, ... Read more

The first reason why we did this cruise is the ports of call and second this is our 6th time cruising with RCC. The ship could really use some major window washing. It was hard to see the views through the window in the back of the ship ... Read more

This cruise was awful. The only good thing was the cabin. The cruise as full of young families with toddlers who did not control their children. Worse the hygeine in dining areas was appalling. Tables were sticky and only wiped with dirty ... Read more

This cruise was back-to-back with Norwegian fjords. We chose it because we have done the Caribbean and Mediterranian, and wanted something different. The itinerary was supposed to be Stockholm, Estonia, St Petersburg, and Helsinki, but ... Read more

I went as part of a dance group from Victoria BC and this was my first ever cruise. Overall I'm glad I went but I don't think cruising is a perferable vacation method for me. Other than the staff at 'Guest Services' who were downright ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it was going to Russia, we had a great time in all the ports, ship had to divert as the weather was to bad to dock in Stockholm but compensated by having two days in Russia. Having read a few reviews before ... Read more

I have never been so disappointed on a cruise. I choose this cruise because of the itinerary because it had 3 nights in St. Petersburg, Russia. The ship is well worn. It really needs to be refurbished. It was the smallest balcony ... Read more

We cruise on the average of twice a year, usually on Royal Caribbean. The staff on this cruise was one of the most dedicated and friendly of any in recent years. Our cabin attendant, Ernesto, our wait staff in the MDR and the Windjammer, ... Read more

We chose RCCL Serenade of Seas due to the itinerary in the Baltic and St Petersburg. In our case we picked our general travel period, ports and then cruise line. I spent probably 40 hours total reading and researching every review I ... Read more

We wanted to make a Baltic Cruise as we live in Germany and wanted to see Scandinavia. My wife did not want to be away from work too long-so we compromised and made the 7 day journey out of Stockholm. We had a wonderful time on Royal ... Read more

My family of 13 went on the Serenade from Stockholm to Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Tallinn, Riga in early July. We had travelled on many cruises previously, many with RC. I must say this was one of the worst. The family members ranged ... Read more

Hmmm, if I had to do it again.. Not so sure I'd opt for RCC. I'd probably go with a higher class ship. There were some good aspects about our cruise but these were largely generated by our own doing. We like to walk, we walk miles everyday ... Read more

We sailed on Navigator Of The Seas to the Baltics. The ship itself is adequate and well laid out. The touch screen devices around the ship however were useful for finding our way around. We did find it difficult to find anywhere quiet to ... Read more

Overall this was an excellent cruise. We are Crown & Anchor Society members (Emerald level) and therefore entitled to priority boarding. We were a party of six, including three teenage granddaughters. We carefully reviewed RCCL's ... Read more
