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

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

Having cruised on Azamara and Celebrity previously, we chose this cruise because of its 7 day itinerary. The Pros: Embarkation and debarkation were very smooth. Our cabin attendant was great. First night's dinner in the MDR was ... 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

Visiting St. Petersburg Russia has been high on my bucket list so my wife and I were really looking forward to the 12-night Baltic cruise on Navigator of the Seas. Four of our previous 14 cruises were on Royal Caribbean (RC) and we enjoyed ... Read more

My wife and I became cruise addicts during our very first cruise back in March on-board the Thompson Celebration visiting various Caribbean islands. On the 28th June we boarded the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line Navigator of the Seas. ... 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

Improvements Necessary 1. 18% gratuity at the bars is ridiculous; the service is no better than any other cruise that I’ve been on, and in some cases not as good. You even have to pay the 18% gratuity if you go up and buy your own ... Read more

It was an awesome cruise! certainly one of the best vacations we took. It combined the luxurious spoils of this great ship with very very interesting visits at the ports of call. The outcome was a week full of art, culture, history, beauty ... Read more

We always wanted to go to the Baltic's and as having never cruised with Royal Caribbean decided with the offer of free drinks and a gratuity package we'd give them a try. Well here are my thoughts regarding the Baltic cruise of June ... Read more

We chose the cruise purely on embarkation port, destination and price - we didn't consider one cruise line over another. We were looking forward to eating lots of fabulous food and waddling off the cruise weighing at least half a stone ... Read more

We were interested in taking either a land tour or a cruise around the Baltic. We opted for a cruise because of the appeal of not having to lug suitcases and pack and unpack every day or two. We liked the itinerary of the Serenade of the ... Read more

Having cruised with RCI before on several occasions, embarkation was as it has been for our last 4-5 cruises, as easy as pie. We arrived at the port by taxi, the staff at the port collected our cases and within 15 - 20 minutes we were ... Read more
