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

We are semi-regular cruisers with RCCL, with Platinum status. We last cruised with them in 2012 (Serenade around the Med). I am mobility disabled and typically travel with my husband. This is a long review, apologies. Ship - I find the ... 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

We booked this cruise in Nov 2014, this is not our usual MO, but we were travelling with friends, who were nervous about not getting the cruise we all wanted to go on. I don't like to book in advance and then have to count the months and ... Read more

The theme of this cruise is how to extract the most money from our passengers. We have been on number of cruises . This was by far the worst. Dinning room menue is trimmed down to a bare bone selection so as to force you to go to the ... Read more

Was on Serenade for Baltic cruise July 5 to 12, 2015. The port stops were all good, St.Petersburg & Riga great. S of S was indeed starting to show its age. RCL seems to be cutting corners ( no bathroom toiletries just liquid ... Read more

My husband and I are regular cruisers now and wanted to do something more than the Caribbean. We thought the itinerary for this cruise was amazing, especially the two days in St. Petersburg. This port did not disappoint. As far as the ... Read more

This cruise was absolutely wonderful. We got to see so much history, meet wonderful people and sample tasty foods. Each excursion was carefully planned to get the most out of limited time. We felt super safe. There was never a time that I ... Read more

We chose the June Baltic cruise on RCCL because of the itinerary (3 days in St. Petersburg, and beginning and ending in different ports). This was our second RCCL cruise, and compared to other cruise lines, it was just okay. Some ... Read more

This was our second cruise, after a 17-day PanCan aboard the Island Princess last Feb. We chose this cruise based on itinerary, as it was the only one in our time frame going to Klaipeda (where I have family roots) and Visby (an ... Read more

1. Ship is a bit long in the tooth, as am I, but comfortable and clean. 2. The ports are great. Try to get the one that includes Lithuania. 3. My Time Dining is a joke. Go to early or late seating and save yourself the hassle of ... Read more

My first cruise on Brilliance and one of only a handful on RCCL. To begin our Scandinavian cruise I parked at Park Plus at JFK for $228 for 14 days. Not bad for NYC, but I later learned that they have Groupons as well! We then flew on ... Read more
