We just finished a cruise on the Serenade of the Seas and overall we enjoyed the trip and the itinerary. The ship was very impressive and it did not feel crowded. (Even though it was booked full)

CABIN - We shelled out some dough this time and upgraded to a Grand Suite. We were in suite 1536. The cabin was wonderful. It seemed as large as an actual hotel room. We had tons of space to store luggage, clothes, and electronics. The bathroom had two sinks and a full tub. With the suite came access to the concierge lounge. The lounge provides breakfast snacks and access to a high end coffee machine. In the evenings complimentary drinks were provided from 5 to 9. Maritza was the concierge and she was wonderful! She was very helpful with everything and a great person to talk to.

DINING - We really enjoyed our dining experience on the Serenade of the Seas. We had a fabulous team of waiters. Our head waiter, Ernie, was super. We have had head waiters in the past where we didn't even know who they were! Ernie was friendly and personable. He always opened the wine and even helped with some of the food. Our waiter was Andy and he was also great. Andy was very friendly and funny. He had great suggestions and always made sure that everyone was happy and satisfied. The food quality was good. It wasn't 5 stars, but when you figure that they are serving 2,000 people it was amazingly good. There was only one night where we all felt the menu was lacking. But one of the nice things about the menu is that you always have the "alternative" menu which includes basic items like steak, salmon, etc. So if you don't like the "main" menu, you can always order from the alternative menu. We had most of our breakfasts at the Windjammer. It was decent. Pretty much your typical buffet. We had most of our lunches at the Seaview cafe. We liked the Seaview because it feels like a real casual restaurant. You place your order and then sit down at a table and they deliver the meal. The menu is limited to hamburgers, fish and chips, etc. But the food was pretty good. You can also purchase beer and wine in the Seaview which was also nice.
