Serenade of the Seas Cruise Review by Romac72

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jul 2019
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea

We’d booked the Mediterranean cruise onboard Freedom of the Seas & wanted to try out the Baltic & Russia cruise with Royal Caribbean. We found the ship smaller but enjoyable but having been on the larger ship Freedom of the Seas it felt like a downgrade. No soda dispenser machine & awkward to be asking at a bar for soda top ups. Highlight was the cinema & the excellent movies. Hardly anyone ever went into the crown pub it was also awkward walking through casino to get to other places. Onboard entertainment in Tropical theatre was average. The one shore excursion we booked via RC wasn’t great. The independent tours we did book online were more superior. A charge of about €245 was taken from my account despite having paid a final statement of over €600. Waiting to get this back. Overall I’ll consider trying another cruise company or going on a bigger ship with more facilities

Old Town Porvoo

Absolutely terrible mostly spent on bus our actual stop in Helsinki itself wasn't very long & in an isolated area away from any decent shops. Provo was beautiful though.

Nothing spectacular

Great little place we loved it here one of our highlights walked into town despite Royal Caribbean ‘strongly’ urging people to book their overpriced excursion tours.
