Over all, Horrible crew, Very poor service, at times confrontational. Smell of sewage overwhelming in both of the rooms we booked. Ship in poor condition overall. RC should have never let passengers on board. Expect a 2 star experience at best. Will never sail with RC again! Read on for the details. This was a repositioning trip where the ship went to dry dock for ...

Since I have never experienced a repositioning cruise before, nor ever cruised with Royal Caribbean, I hope I am not unduly unfair to Royal Caribbean in the following comments, as I am not sure if this is the result of it being a repositioning cruise or just normal operating procedure for RC. Repositioning cruises are the best deal - and if you are budget conscious or just like to get the best ...

  This was our first Alaska cruise and after being on the Serenade of the Seas, it will not be our last. We are not sure if the ship is that smooth, or the captain is that good. Probably both. I would think we were in port still and look up to discover we had set sail already. We have been on approx. 18 cruises, by  all different lines and this ship wowed us totally.  Our cabin was the best ...

This was a 14 day, 12  port trip from San Francisco up to Hubbard Glacier in Alaska and then ending in Vancouver.  We have been on two Alaska cruises before, each of seven days and one with the additional seven day land tour.  This Serenade of the Seas cruise brought us to several ports that we had never travelled such as Astoria OR, Sitka, Hubbard Glacier, Icy Strait Point, and Prince Rupert BC.I ...

As a first time cruiser, I agonized over which cruise to take, which ship, which itinerary - all of it. I knew I wanted to go to Alaska, and I had a relatively narrow window for my departure time - early May. After many hours spent on Cruise Critic reading both CC and member reviews, I honed my choices down to two: Norwegian sailing out of Seattle for a 7-day cruise, or Royal Caribbean sailing out ...

We always look for great deal when selecting our cruise and the Ultimate Alaska Cruise on Serenade of the Seas on 5-3-08 was the ticket! We did Alaska last year and wanted to see more. The ports were all great and we actually had good weather for most of the trip. We usually take 7 day trips and this was our second 2 week cruise. For us, 2 weeks is the best since it seems you just get to know the ...

This was my 14th cruise on RCCL. Reason for this one was, to once sail out of San Francisco which was really wonderful. We had the best cabin, an aft Junior Suite on deck 10, next to the corner Grand Suite. Loved it. Our room steward was probably the best we ever had. Concierge service was equally excellent due to the fact that the "cocktail hour" each night was held on deck 13 in the viking crown ...
