Review for Serenade of the Seas to Mediterranean

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 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 ...

We had a very good holiday on this ship, the staff were great, the food was good although the vegetarian choice was sometimes limited. The entertainment was good and the ports visited were very interesting, except perhaps for Salerno and Messina where we had been before. We did not take part in any organised trips as they were not value for money. we managed to organise our own trips quite ...

Port of calls good, RCI a let down

We are a couple each 40 years old who recently just completed a 12 day Adriatic Sea cruise onboard the Serenade of the Seas. Ports of call were excellent: Salerno(southern Italy), Sicily, Split, Slovenia, Venice 2 days, Dubrovnik, Montenegro, and Corfu Greece. The last time we sailed RCI was in 2011, and have been on other RCI previous to 2011. We cruise 1 to 2 times a year and only cruise ...

Does not live up to expectations

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

We were on our honeymoon and decided to take the 12 day with stops in Salerno, Sicily, malta, Montenegro, Venice, croatia and Corfu. The ports were wonderful. We went in September so we're on one of the "oldest cruises they had ever seen" and it seemed the ship was more geared towards that age demographic so there was not much of interest for our age group (we're in our thirties.) They closed the ...

The ship was beautiful. Very well maintained. Great staff, very accommodating. Formal nights on most ships insist on a reasonable mode of dress but on this ship you could be casual. There is usually a cocktail offered on formal nights but again nothing was offered. The balcony cabin we had was extremely tiny. If one of us was getting dressed, the other had to wait so we wouldn't bump each other ...

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 ...

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 ...

Generally a Disappointing Experience

This is our cruise number six and the first and the last cruise was hosted by Royal Caribbean. The first trip was very good; actually it was all we hoped for. The last trip could not, in any way, live up to our expectations. Here is why: • The food. The food in the main restaurant was generally disappointing and often it did not have the right temperature. There was regularly served lukewarm ...

Surprised.

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 ...
