This should have been the cruise of a life time - visiting Scandinavia, Russia and the Baltic states. Instead, it was an average cruise with reasonable on board comforts and good food BUT a shore excursion department probably controlled by ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the wonderful itinerary, and this never disappointed. However, Let me say this was not the usual Royal experience. We purchased the beer/wine/soft drink package but really was rarely able to use as pool ... 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

I chose this cruise for the itinerary. The overnight in Stockholm, our embarkation city, allowed us to fly in on the day of the cruise, rather than fly in early to assure we did not miss the ship due to air travel delays. There were also ... Read more

Worse ship I've sailed on yet. We booked this for the amazing itinerary - lots of port days and only one at sea day. We booked private excursions on most of the ports - did "on our own" in Riga, Klaipeda and Fredericia. The ... 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

Great trip and entertainment on board, we had a balcony stateroom on deck 9 which was clean and spacious enough for a ship but a little dated. Beds were comfortable and Balcony while furniture while dated was adequate for our needs. Our ... 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

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

Perhaps we lucked out, but I found the staff to be excellent on this cruise - everyone from our waiter and assistant waiter in the dining room (who went over and above) to those who served in the Windjammer or who were cleaning rugs on the ... Read more

This was the cruise I wanted to take, it offered the most time in St. Petersburg and you are going to need it. All the other ports of call were wonderful and just beautiful. I am a Royal Carribean loyalist. I like the layout of the ships ... Read more

The itinerary of this cruise was excellent with only one day at sea. Now to the part that explains why my rating was only 3 stars. The food in the dining room and the Windjammer were adequate at best. Please don't order a steak in ... Read more

My 14 night Baltic cruise during the summer of 2015 with Royal Caribbean on the Serenade Seas was two different experiences. The Ports of Call and the ship herself were a 5 Star experience. Royal Caribbean as a company provided a 1 Star ... 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

I was on the Serenade of the Seas on a Baltic cruise on July 5 with my wife and two sons (ages 19 and 16). We had a really enjoyable time. It was my 5 cruise in the last 24 years, the last three of which have been RCL cruises. ... Read more
