The Serenade of the Seas is a beautiful ship. It is clean and well maintained. We were excited about our Scandinavian Cruise. We had spent two weeks on a river cruise through Russia (St. Petersburg to Moscow) but were still excited to ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary since we'd heard from multiple people that a Baltic cruise was a "must do". While we were very impressed with the ports of call, the ship left something to be desired. We had read that the ... Read more

I really enjoyed this cruise, but the excursions in Russia are really too expensive, the shuttles to the city centers are much too expensive, and sometimes the boat did not seem well maintained, stained cushions, cushions and carpets Dirty ... Read more

Rude staff, poor service, very unresponsive to needs. Food quality was very bad. Breakfast: Orders that had any variation from the menu, for example no cheese on my egg, were often wrong because the staff did not understand english ... Read more

Want to fight over a table during lunch time? Be reminded over the sound system not to hang on to long? Pay an arm and a leg for your water, tea and sodas? Sleep on an artisanal extra bed made of bits and pieces? And pay over € 7000 ... Read more

First cruise. We have traveled all over the world but never by ship. This is a great way to see the Baltic countries. Riga and Tallin were especially surprising, beautiful cities. Loved the history of St Petersburg. Only 5 hours ... Read more

Great itinerary and great time on this trip. Easy checkin and disembarkation. Getting into Russia was a little slow the first day but quick and easy the next two days. All ports where great, but Helsinki was our least favorite. We could ... Read more

I choose this cruise only because of it itinerary only. It is the only cruise line that offer 3 days in St Petersburg. Now that I have gone, I think 2 days will be enough which mean many other cruise lines to choose from. I have been ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the itinerary: I wanted to visit these countries without committing to a two week stay in each of them. I found that this was perfect. We had one day at sea and this was also perfect! Just a quick note about ... Read more

This Ultimate Baltic cruise was the reason we chose this cruise. The ship visited Denmark, Germany, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Russia and Finland, there was only 1 day at sea and so it was exhausting rather than relaxing. We had an ... Read more

The ship was smaller than ones I've been on before and I wasn't crazy about the Centrum layout (I prefer the Promenade on the larger ships), but I loved the location of our cabin on Deck 3 Aft. The best thing about this cruise was the ... Read more

Itinerary, the main reason for the cruise. It was disappointing. Next time we will choose a different cruise line. It looks like the cruise lines main objective is to secure as much money as possible from the passengers. We have never been ... Read more

We had sailed to Copenhagen last year on the Serenade so we were looking forward to both the itinerary and the ship. The itinerary did not disappoint, in fact, it exceeded our expectations. However, Serenade left quite a bit to be ... Read more

Our travel agent recommended this cruise because of the beauty of Norway and our love of scenery so different from where we live. We didn't get a chance to explore our departure city because of vacation time limitations. All check-ins to ... Read more
