Having just returned from 7 nights on the Serenade of the Seas, there are a few areas that could use improvements. This was my first experience with " my time dining" and proved out to work well. We were able to book the same table and wait staff and time for every night. I do find the menu needs some updating. We did dine at Chops and Giovanni's table, of the two I prefer Gionanni's table. Ate very few meals in Windjammer because I do not like buffets but when we did the staff was attentive and got our drinks for us. The cruise director and staff were very visible and friendly. RCCL is my choice if they go where I want to go. Was recognized for 280 cruise nights with RCCL on this cruise and have 36 more booked before the end of the year.
Cabin was excellent for 2 people. The walk in closet and bath tub make the cost worth while.
From New Orleans, but several people we met loved their time in New Orleans. Love to hear good things about my city.sometimes we don't appreciate what we have.
