I chose this cruise because the price seemed reasonable, the time was good and friends wanted us to join them. The food was ok, some of it very good, some of it poor but most ok. I found the pastries were usually not very good. I got fed ...
I have never experienced a Baltic cruise before having and I was really looking forward to it. As our flight arrived early afternoon and with the airport transfer I didn't have time to experience Copenhagen. Embarkation was quick and I was ...
Few points to start. We had a great time. This was our second cruise, the first being on Celebrity Equinox 3 years ago immediately after it returned from Dry-dock. And I specifically chose Royal Caribbean because I understood that the ...

Serenade of the Seas is an 18 year old ship that was the queen of the fleet when first launched but is now showing her age. We were told she is going to go through dry dock and updating in December of this year. Nothing about this Royal ...
Visiting the Norwegian Fjords was always on our bucket list and this cruise fit the timeframe we wanted to go and the ports we wanted to see. While the ship is older it is well maintained and very clean. The stateroom with a balcony had ...
We enjoy this class of ship for its ease of getting around and meeting people. It is in need of some refurbishing and can feel overcrowded at times. Embarking and disembarking went very smooth. The ports were wonderful and we enjoyed them ...
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 ...
We choose this cruise due to the timely dates of the cruise offered.

We chose this particular ship because of timing and Itinerary. We had read reviews mentioning the age and condition of the ship, but were very pleasantly surprised with how it appeared in general. We were in a Grand Suite (1550) and it ...
We chose this cruise for the itinerary. Serenade is a nice ship, the cabins are a little tired but well maintained.
Dining was good, we chose anytime dining and switched between sharing a table and having a table for two.
The quality ...

We chose this cruise for its ports of call, which did not disappoint us. The ship is a little dated, and probably in need of an update, but it was more about the destination. The cabin was fine, the windjammer cafe so very under resourced- ...
We chose the Baltic and Nordic cruises because they offered the itineraries we wanted and were back-to-back. The RC shore excursions were excellent as were the non-RC excursions that we mixed in because of content or price. The excursion ...
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 ...
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 ...
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, ...
