Additional details

Sail Date: Sep 2018
Cabin: Interior
Traveled with children

Starting with my first Royal Caribbean Cruise 15yrs ago, then multiple Carnival Cruises after that, we decided to choose Royal Caribbean again because of how much we enjoyed the first one. After 5 Cruises prior to this one in 2018, I’d consider myself experienced and because of that, I have realistic expectations of what a Cruise should entail.

Well, unfortunately this one was the WORST ship (Serenade of the Seas) I’ve been on.

We travelled with a group of family consisting of ten people in total - 6 adults and 4 children. Three children under the age 10, one being 12 and the adults ranging from 40yrs of age to 60 yrs of age.

Cabin Review


Cabin 3V

The cabin was fine and our attendant always kept our room clean and looked after anything we needed. I think his name was John - nice gentleman!
