Maybe too small for anyone that gets seasick...

Our daughter booked this cruise for her family, which included a 6 year old, 4 year old, and a 14 month old. We found an interior room a few doors down last minute so we booked our cruise to join them. I knew ...

Great for First Time Cruisers

We wanted to try cruising without all the fuss of a larger ship. The Vision of the Seas was a lovely ship with a great crew! We easily were able to navigate and figure out where everything was. The Masquerade ...

Wonderful Service but Not a Lot to Do

We traveled the week before Christmas with our two kids 10 & 13. We had a wonderful time because that is what we made it! Though there were some cons, we figure life is what you make it. Pros: Service. ...

Quick Getaway

Having just returned from 7 nights on the Serenade of the Seas, there are a few areas that could use improvements. This was my first experience with " my time dining" and proved out to work well. We were able to ...

Just OK

The state room was extremely clean, the staff were friendly & the ship was small. We were at sea for two days and the pool deck was extremely crowded. I enjoyed the dinner in the main dining room but some of the ...

Good ship and crew - Not enough port time

Serenade of the Seas is a nice ship. The entertainment, food, crew, etc were all good. We tried three of the pay restaurants and liked them all. Our favorite was Giovanni's Table. Service and food were great. Chops ...

Not as good as we had hoped

This was my 3rd cruise, the other two Carnival. I'm going to break this down into sections. Parking: Horrible. Not enough spaces and no shuttle service to the docks like Carnival offers. Embarkation / Debarkation ...

RCI Delivers Good Value

RCI delivers a very good standard in about everything across the board. People who don't like the food are too picky in my opinion. People who think it's great are not discerning enough...it's good. Same with the ...

Family Fun in the Carribean Sun!

Our cruise began December 15, 2012. It was our first cruise and I was nervous about cruising with kids (ages 11 & 6). We got through the security lines in less than an hour and were able to walk to the suite ...

Not the best cruise but definitely the worst

The food on this cruise is the worst that I have ever experienced on a cruise. There was not food available on the pool deck and swim suits were not allowed in the Windjammer buffet, so you would have to get dressed ...

We sailed Dec 17-24 with a full ship of over 3300 passengers and 1300 crew. My son is 11, and my daughter is 16. I wasn't sure whether to do this cruise or go with Disney. But this cruise was a great success, and ...
