Serenade of the Seas Cruise Review by richies14

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2016
  • Destination: the Southern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

The dates and ports worked for us. The weather was great, the ship, not so good. This was my 7th cruise and the amenities were the worst. To give you an idea of how they think about food.....they listed the main dining room as complimentary dining. The entertainment was woeful with the exception of the comedian. Zumba was great. Finding food after being in port was nearly impossible....only two stations open with three people serving. It's not the employees fault, definitely the corporation. The size of the ship made it manageable but there are too many negatives. Guest services and security during disembarkation at ports were nonexistent. I tried to get a wheelchair for my husband just to get him to the end of the port...you would have thought I was asking for the moon. Security said go to guest services and vice versa. Unfortunately, not all of the ports have private transport for the docks. It would be helpful if the cruise line could accommodate this.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

The room was fine, a bit small but the worst thing was the sheets didn't fit the bed. They're not fitted sheets and the bed's edges were circular not square. Sleeping could have been more comfortable.
