Love Radiance class of ships and Serenade did not disappoint. There are a few areas that look a bit worn and tired but did not bother me.
As always crew was friendly and always asked if we needed anything to improve our cruise.
Food was of high quality in Windjammer and Main Diningroom - Reflections. Rough 1st night in MyTime (reservation did not go through correctly) but got straightened out in no time.
Cabin was good with a great cabin steward.
Captain Aris was friendly - hubby approached him with a question and got and immediate answer. Carly B our Cruise Director was always available for questions along with the Activities staff. Enjoyed dance fitness for fun with Naomi and James, Casey introduced a couple new games that were fun to participate in, especially Liars Club with Naomi, Lars and James the first night and Naomi, Lizzie and James - had some huge laughs.
Very clean, bed was comfortable. Had more than enough storage.
Showers were always very warm if not too hot at times.
Took taxi to Friars Beach Club, not as nice as we thought it would be. Water was a little rough so we didn’t go in much.
Went to Grand Anne Beach absolutely beautiful, water crystal clear and was able to take pictures of starfish. Water taxis available ($5) each way, we took a taxi because there were 5 of us. Did not have to pay driver until we returned to port. We set a pickup time and he was there.
Beach Hop Island Style was a lot of fun. Our tour guide was Andre and was super entertaining. Beaches were great with restrooms at each. The tour also included beverages, Banks beer, rum punch, orange juice, soda and water.
Only down side started at 7:30 AM not sure why so early, even Andre didn't know.View All 167 Beach Reviews
Took a taxi to Jolly Beach which was beautiful. Chairs were $5 each and $10 for an umbrella. Bathroom available.
Best part you don’t have to pay for ride until returned to port, $6 each way because we used a mini bus with others. We set a pickup time and was there when asked.
