Royal Caribbean always very good!: Serenade of the Seas Cruise Review by gnshpdude
Overall Member Rating
Royal Caribbean always very good!
Embarkation: New Orleans
Cabin review: 1074
This was a nice stateroom. Because it was next to the suites it appears we got a couple extra feet of space. There is plenty of storage and the balcony is nice.
Port and Shore Excursions
Great Private Island that RC owns. Much to do or just relax in the shade in a hammock. I thought the tender ride fro the ship would suck, but I ended up liking it. We took a Jet Ski tour and the water was pretty rough 204 foot seas. My wife had to get off but I stuck it out and actually had fun, but was sore for three days. The straw market here is low stress and contains some unique art work and clothing.
The reason for the 3 stars is because the short stop of 4.5 hours didn't leave much time to see everything.
I was not impressed with Nassau. It is very expensive and the shops contain much counterfeit merchandise. I couls not find one place that has real Cuban Cigars. They all carried the fake "Costa Rican" ones. When I asked to see a box with the Habana SA hologram the dude acted like he didn't understand. The numerous Jewelery stores were much expensive then Mexico or Jamaica. I should have went to Atlantis as I heard it was rockin.
