We chose this cruise because of its very different itinerary which included Copenhagen as a starting point, 2 ports in Norway, 3 in Iceland, Halifax, and, finally Boston. We had had such a wonderful first-time transAtlantic experience with ... Read more

Entertainment was excellent. Several service issues that needed to be addressed as there were a lot of new employees being trained on this sailing for Harmony of the Seas. Disappointed to see more increase in charges at specialty ... Read more

Iceland was the new destination. And it was great. Glad we went. We had an extra day in Copenhagen. However we had a bad screw-up with their air department. At this time I don't recommend using OVC air department. The hotel we ... Read more

We originally chose this cruise to see the Northern Lights & the Faroe Islands. The Northern lights were a bust (not the ship's fault) but the Faroe Islands were mysteriously cancelled by Royal with no explanation. The dining on the ... Read more

We choose this cruise because of the 4 days / 3 ports in Iceland and were not disappointed in our choice. The pre-cruise stay in Copenhagen was enjoyable and enjoyed the city tour and canal bout ride (arranged via Expedia) Even though ... Read more

As luck would have it, this was our second repositioning cruise with RCCL and the same ship - Serenade of the Seas. We were out for 16 days. There is much to be happy about when cruising with Royal Caribbean. Number 1 is the staff, they ... Read more

This cruise was a deal, and travel, from our home to Fort-Lauderdale, and back from Copenhagen was not a problem. We had been thinking about a transatlantic for awhile and the itinerary was perfect. Our cruise experience so far stands at ... Read more

We chose this cruise basically for the price. It was very LOW!! So low, in fact, I called my Travel Agent to find out if we had to row!. There was a delay in the ship arriving to port so our embarkation was delayed. This led to a very ... Read more

We were on the Serenade of the Seas in a Grand Suite cabin (5136) on a 16-day Transatlantic trip from Copenhagen to NYC via Oslo and Reykjavik. The ship itself is very nice in the public areas. Food and service in the Main Dining Room ... Read more

We have been on 20+ cruises on varying lines, and found Serenade of the Seas to be a generally agreeable ship. Dining and entertainment are on a par with other RCL ships. The weather for the North Atlantic crossing via Iceland was bleak ... Read more

This was the sixth eastbound transatlantic cruise for me and my wife, and our 19th holiday in Europe, so we are not neophyte European travelers or cruisers. One aspect of this cruise which has not been commented on was the weather. It ... Read more

Getting on board in Boston was a nightmare. Not enough staff. We had to wait ONE HOUR in line to get checked in after Security. We've embarked in other ports (FL, NJ, CA), and never had to wait nearly as long. Also I think going thru ... Read more
