The room was clean. The bathroom fixtures were dated and could use a refresher. The room was very large with plenty of storage. The bathroom was huge with a full sized tub. The bed was comfortable. The sofa folds out to a double sized bed that my 13 and 11 year old slept on. We could hear music from the centrum but it was not bothersome and was always turned off by midnight. On occasion we could hear things being moved about above us but again it was not bothersome (and I'm easily bothered). It was so convenient to the Windjammer where we would refill our soda cup, grab a snack or a meal. Also convenient to other parts of the ship. We had a double sized balcony but only one door opened. Family was staying next door in 1552 but the balcony did not connect.

Our cabin – GS 1554 was very conveniently located and a little different from the other Grand Suites. It was a bit smaller because it was on the hump, but we had a full outer wall of glass with double sliding doors that basically served to make the cabin and the balcony seem like one space.

The room is laid out a little differently than other Grand Suites because it sits on an aft corner. The bed is at an angle, not square to the side. There was plenty of room for us to put 12 people in the suite and be comfortable. The bathroom is huge and has a full size tub that made showering easy. The deck isn't as deep as other aft decks but is still big enough for 2 loungers, 2 chairs and a table with walking room to spare. The bar along the wall was nice as we didn't lose any floor space to it. There was plenty of storage, we didn't even use all the drawers/cabinets and we are well accomplished over-packers.

The only negative about the room was the noise from the Windjammer. It wasn't bad but I can see how light sleepers would have issues with it. There was a lot of noise from chairs scraping on the deck. It wasn't so bad that it kept us awake.

GS 1530 although perfectly clean and superbly attended to by our Suite Attendant was a little tired, don't worry about this if you are booking in the future as the ship is in for a full re-furbishment in November 2012 (we just missed this). Cabin nice and quiet under the relaxation area of the adult only pool. Balcony double the size of most on the ship. Loads of space in this cabin, good sized bathroom with bath and his and hers washbasins. Loads of mirrors and storgage space. Tea and coffee making facilities in the room.

Suite 1052 The cabin was in a perfect location mid ship, a few steps away from the elevators and main stairway. We were one deck down from the Windjammer (WJ) and two from the Adventure Ocean. It was also right next door to the Concierge Lounge (CL). We went there every morning for coffee and hot tea and every afternoon for drinks.

Perfect trip on Serenade Nuclear Cruiser
Grand suite 1552 was a great Cabin. With 350 sq ft of space, an an additional 100 sq ft balcony there is plenty of room. bathroom is large, with double sinks and a deep soaking tub. We had empty drawers there was so much storage area.

1048 is a great room! The decor is very nice, there is plenty of space, and the balcony is a good size. The bathroom is large and has double sinks so two people can easily get ready at the same time. Storage space is plentiful! The room is quiet, with the exception of some noise overhead on the night of the midnight poolside buffet. We would stay in this room again!

GS1600 is the corner at the stern of the ship.  It has an atypical layout, with a little hallway leading in from the door - kind of wasted space.
It was my first balcony and my first suite.
One of my roommates had traveled in suites before and said that we had less closet space than other GSs - which was important as we had three women in the cabin.  We felt that we were definitely short on storage space; we ended up using the bar to store clothes!
When the beds are separated into twins, the left bed gets banged into whenever the right set of drawers in the vanity are opened.  The drawers are very hard to open - the pulls are very odd and hard to hold on to, I would imagine that someone with arthritis would have quite a bit of difficulty with them.
The balcony had two lounges, two chairs, and a small square table, and still plenty of room to move around.
This cabin is directly below the outdoor area of the Windjammer, and you *can* hear chairs moving around up there.  You can also hear people chatting, and once we got some debris from a careless diner (empty sugar packet).

There was a noisy 'pool header' in the hall immediately outide of our cabin. Noise was very loud in the hallway. Although the noise was subdued somewhat inside the cabin, it was still audible. Inside of our cabine it sounded a bit like a toilet that was running on. Didn't bother me or the kids at all, but my wife did comment on it.

I would not recommend our Grand Suite #1552. It was located near the pool deck. You can hear the pool band playing. Although this was never during late hours. However, the worst part was the squeaking hinge and slamming of the large metal crew doors located near the ping pong table above our room. When they are setting up for an outdoor event (poolside BBQ or Buffet), it would squeak and slam every 30 seconds. We made a complaint, but still heard the noise throughout the cruise.
