First a little about us, we are a couple in our late 40's/early 50's with no children, husband is a chef and is fully aware of the logistics required to provide quality meals to hundreds of people! This was our 9th cruise all of which have been with Royal Caribbean but this was our first on the Serenade. We have done this cruise before three years ago on the Brilliance of the Seas and enjoyed it ...

Firstly, for those who have read my previous reviews I hope I've demonstrated that my comments are as objective as possible and where possible as positive as I can be. This review is based on my expectation for the price we paid. Had I paid less I may have thought our experience was acceptable. This is quite long, but bear with me! As a result of lots of positive comments from friends and the ...

Here's some info about Serenade and cruising her with children. I couldn't find much before I went. We are 2 adults and one 9 year old boy. So, in no particular order: I bought the soda cup and bottled water package. Total waste of money, iced water is available in the windjammer all day. Also, hidden away in the park cafe is a drinks dispenser with sugar free lemonade, mango water, strawberry ...

We had already spent 2 days in Dubai prior to embarkation. We arrived at the Cruise Terminal at about 11 am and our check-in was smooth and quick. We were able to get to our stateroom at midday so we went and had a drink first before a little exploring. We found our stateroom straight away but were a little disappointed to discover that it was just off the Centrum and hoped that this would ...

Just back from a 7 day cruise from Dubai on the Serenade of the seas. Starting with embarkation: Very chaotic, we had an overnight flight and was taken to the Hyatt hotel for breakfast and booking in process, but they had run out of sea pass cards, so we had, with others a piece of paper giving our cabin Numbers etc. But they didn't tell the security so we couldn't get on the ship until we made ...

Our first cruise and we were determined to enjoy it! Cabin was well positioned on Deck 10, just below the Solarium Deck 11, so convenient for popping up for a drink(Alcoholic or non) and food. The itinerary was not that exciting as most of the ports were working ports so not too much glamour there, but, the ship was what we went on holiday for and we made the most of what was it had to offer. ...

We have recently returned from a week's cruise in the Middle East on board RCI's "Serenade of the Seas". This was our first cruise and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We booked very early, paid extra for an outside balcony and chose cabin 8102. On our balcony were 2 sunloungers, 2 chairs and 2 tables ... and there was still plenty of space. The cabin itself was compact but there was ample ...

We had the good fortune to be on this Royal Caribbean ship for the cruise around the Arabia Starting in Dubai. This was our first time on Royal Caribbean but hopefully not our last, the ship is in good order throughout. Compares well with other cruise lines. I cannot think of any negatives Good, friendly staff. The buffet dining areas top deck is very good with an excellent selection of ...
