Serenade of the Seas Cruise Review by rczattiero

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2017
  • Destination: Canada & New England
  • Cabin Type: Interior Stateroom

The main reason I (we) chose this cruise was because of the venue - fall colors. Although the colors had not yet peaked, the colors were turning and were quite beautiful It's all about timing (and luck). We were just a little too early to get the full advantage of the fall colors. But the venues were great - Hallifax, Portland, Bar Harbor and Boston - all great stops.

Having sailed many time of Celebrity, I did see some difference in what was supplied in the staterooms. On Celebrity I always got shampoo, conditioner and body lotion. This did not happen on the RC cruise. We only got shampoo and we had to ask for additional bars of soap half way into the cruise.

The crew on the ship were fantastic - very pleasant and helpful. We are looking forward to our cruise in February on the Serenade of the Seas to the Caribbean.

Cabin Review

Interior Stateroom
Cabin K 4057

Very clean cabin. Although I normally prefer an outside cabin, our stateroom was very comfortable and we only spent time there to sleep.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Did not take an excursion the first day of the cruise. Just getting settled in and join the sail away party.


We just walked the Harborwalk (boardwalk) from the ship into Halifax. Great views and nice restaurant - Stubborn Goat Beer Garden. Outside deck with a view of the water.

Bay of Fundy

The train ride up over the reversing rapids was great. Then the bus tour which followed was also great.

The 4 masted scooner was great. Going out was sunny. Coming back was cloudy and rather chilly. We should have dressed warmer.
