Excellent service, food and entertainment, but we chose this cruise for the itinerary (which included Iceland). Taking a northern cruise in late August/early September limits your pool time somewhat, but it is a great time to be walking through ports. Repositioning cruises with multiple at sea days require a variety of entertainment and enrichment options to ensure a positive experience. Serenade of the Seas is large enough to support variety in these areas so there is virtually never a time when you cannot find something to do. The food is of great quality so the specialty restaurants are not needed by most people (although they do offer a different experience). Everyone should take a cruise that stops in Iceland. In addition to waterfalls, guysers and a unique landscape, you get to see where scenes from the Game of Thrones were filmed. Do take the Golden Circle tour (consider Iceland Guided Tours -- their guides are terrific and they use mini buses). Overall this cruise was a wonderful experience.

Excellent cruise

Cabin Review

Cabin 8084
Adequate size and well appointed. The balcony was comfortable and served us well on sea days and when entering/exiting ports.
