My husband and I have traveled on Carnival since 1983 our first of 12 cruise on Carnival. When we saw that Serenade of the Seas went out of Boston ( we live about 20 Minutes from the Dock) we thought we would give it a try. I was excited to see a different cruise line and also a little scared that I wouldn't like it. While there were many differences between Royal Caribbean and Carnival they ...

5 great islands, one mediocre ship

We chose this cruise because of the convenience of leaving from Boston and the islands to be visited. The ship is very easy to get around on and the staff is pleasant. Some areas of the ship are in need of repair. In our stateroom bathroom the mirror seemed to have a buildup of algae around the edges and after a brief rainstorm the floor of our balcony was covered in a muddy debris. The ...

We've just got home from an incredible holiday! We had a smooth flight out to Boston from London, our pre-organised transfer was brilliant. The hotel, booked through Royal Caribbean, was fabulous and very well located. We got a taxi to the port the next day and we're a little bit overwhelmed with the huge queue to check in, it seemed we'd all been given the same embarkation time! It moved ...

Liked itinerary, love the islands, especially St. Lucia. Relaxing and good food and service, also liked the music around the ship. Was a little upset that I did not receive body lotion in my cabin since I am diamond plus, don't think it would have cost more than .30 cents, think Royal Caribbean is cutting back on so many things, but did without. The ship was clean, lot to do, had a very ...

We like the cruise because it was convenient for us leaving from Boston. This was our third time doing this repositioning cruise. The stops are really good. We booked again for next year. The ship was in need of a facelift and was heading to dry dock for some work after this cruise. They now have life guards that hover at the edge of the pool. I was swimming alone in the solarium pool and ...

Love repo's and this cruise started in my hometown of Boston. An hours ride and we were in the cruiseport. Been to all the islands and have cruised on Serenade before. Her and Freedom are my favorites. What made this cruise special was the crew. Outstanding crew throughout the ship from the MDR to the bars. Plenty of entertainment onboard. Food was very good and plenty of variety. Disembarkation ...

First off, let me say that I'm a male in my early 30s, and this is my 5th cruise (2nd with Royal Caribbean; the 1st being while I was a little kid), with the 2 most-recent cruises I've been on having been Carnival ships (the Splendor and the Pride). Therefore, my reference point for comparison will be from my experiences with Carnival, and not necessarily a different Royal Caribbean cruise. Also, ...

We just returned from a 12 day repositioning from Boston to Florida - The ship as said before is getting a little dated, but the staff was doing an excellent job of keeping it clean. The maintenance staff was at work every day scraping and painting even when we were in port. The rooms yes are a little dated, but quite frankly our room was perfect. The bed was so comfortable we slept in every ...

We chose this cruise really on price, we had buy one, and one half price. The itinerary was good interesting and in the carribean, St Kitts, Antigua, St Lucia, Curaçao, and Aruba, we both enjoyed all of the islands all where beautiful in there own way , bit disappointed with St Lucia very pushy at the dock it got quite aggressive and put us off doing any trips, I am sure if we did venture out it ...

Annual trek to Boston for the Beantown to Beaches reposition sailing. Ship is showing wear BUT the crew moral is fantastic and doing its best to be SURE the passengers are given exceptional service. The addition of lifeguards are a welcome sight as too many parents do not watch their children closely enough. This was evident on this sailing as a tyke even interrupted the main dining room kitchen ...
