  3. Serenade of the Seas
Our community picked this cruise because it had southern Caribbean ports and left from Fort Lauderdale and not San Juan. 75 of us went on this six port intensive and four sea day cruise. While the 75 of us just had this cruise, we met many others that enjoyed this as a B2B, and even up to a 6B2B! I can see why this is popular for the cruising fanatics. Food was great, service was fantastic, crowds were manageable, ports were fun, entertainment was enjoyable, and ship looked wonderful. We had two pretty good comedians on the ship, a couple good shows, a couple bad shows, and two FANTASTIC Beatles tribute shows. I hope these four guys are on your next cruise. Pub singer was great, Bar act was over worked. Other music was pretty good for a smaller ship. To me, MDR dinners was uninspired. It lacked choices and flavor. WJ was better when we went there. Lunch at MDR was far superior with choices, taste and desserts. We did not try any specialty restaurants this trip. Food in Diamond Lounge was very good. Room service breakfast was spot-on. Coffee was fine at all venues. We did our research here on CC for the ports and booked independent operators for all our excursions. Opinions will be shared on those boards. Wish more ships would visit Ponce, PR - the area needs development. Overall, loved meeting new friends, seeing new places, and can't wait till our next adventure!

Cabin Review

Spacious Ocean View Balcony
Cabin 4B
Great aft cabin. Large balcony with two tables, two chairs, two loungers. Neat feature with this cabin is you can see from 50 yards away when cabin steward is working in the room, that the door is open.
Nit picking about the door lock (tough to open), soot and rust on the balcony, but that's it.
