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

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
