Just off the nine night Greek Islands cruise onboard the Serenade out of Civitavecchia in a two bedroom family suite – five adults, (Mom, Dad, DD, DS and DIL). Daughter and I did the 12 night Med cruise onboard the Serenade last year same timeframe out of Barcelona that we enjoyed a tad more. We also spent a week in Rome pre cuise. I arranged for a private mini van from Roma to Civitavecchia (5 ...

Ship Problems:- 1) The elevator calling system is a nightmare at boarding and disembarkation as they are far too busy. On arrival we had to endure the ‘scrum’ of guests competing for elevators which had no logic to them. We eventually worked out they appear to work on a priority call system which in principle sounds sensible, but in practice means that it is impossible for guests to know which ...

Hi, I traveled with 2 other ladies and we very much enjoyed our cruise on Serenade of the Seas in October of 2014. We arranged our own transfer to Civitavecchia from Rome, and arrived early for boarding. Boarding went very smoothly but, as we were on board around noon, our room was not ready until after 1. We explored the ship as this was the first cruise for my 2 friends (I had been on one many ...

This was our first RCI cruise (9 previous cruises on Princess, Celebrity and Cunard) and were were mostly pleased with the experience. The staff were great and friendly and the ship (Serenade of the Seas) was absolutely lovely and every easy to navigate. We loved the ship, enjoyed our itinerary (Greek Isles), thought the public areas were beautiful and we had a great cruise. A few pluses: Food ...

This was an experienced crew who worked well together and knew the itinerary. All our experiences onboard were much more than satisfactory. Because the cruise was so port-intensive, we didn't have the energy to take in much entertainment or enjoy activities onboard. What we need was excellent service, good food, and a comfortable refuge after walking many thousands of steps each day ashore. This ...

First time on Royal for me. Found myself comparing to other cruise lines. Check in was a breeze, in our rooms by 1 PM. Food good but one in our group has Celiac disease and her choices were limited. Disappointed in the hours of the buffet, closes early. Brought our one bottle of "allowed" wine on board but no wine glasses in cabin. Had to go ask for them each day from a bar. Friendly staff. Good ...

RC: Serenade of the Seas; Never Again

This is the first time that I am writing a review but I feel compelled to do so. We sailed the Caribbean with Carnival Glory in 2010. The Grand Med on the Magic in 2011. Northern Europe and Norway on the Legend in 2013 and now 17th Sept 14 on RC Serenade of the Seas, the Adriatic. We were obviously spoiled by Carnival as our latest cruise did not meet our expectations at all. For the first two ...

Disappointed; cruise masquerading as more than it is.

This was my first and probably last time on Royal Caribbean. I have previously sailed Oceania, Cunard and Princess (twice). I choose my cruises by destination. All have been 12 day cruises. Only the Cunard cruise was more expensive. The destination here was the Adriatic but starting and ending in Rome. Let me start with positive comments. The staff are friendly. The food, with some exceptions, is ...

Just got off a 12 day Mediterranean/Adriatic cruise on Serenade of the Seas. After reading several recent reviews, I thought I would weigh in with a more positive experience. Both embarkation and disembarkation were smooth, well organized and we felt we got on and off the ship in record time. The fact that we got on and off in the same port probably helped - no need to clear customs or ...

I gave my review a title of surprised but unfortunately it was surprised in a bad way. I've been on several RCI cruises so thought I knew what to expect but I was totally wrong. My recent cruising experiences have been with other cruise lines so perhaps that clouded my experience but in reading other reviews I find that's not the case. Dining was not a good experience. We tried before going on ...
