No Wow's Here; Just Average

We like a more than 7 day cruise, so RCI options are really limited unless you do a pricey back to back. We also like the larger ships, Radiance class & larger - for me, the larger the better! After cruising Oasis ...

Fourth time on Serenade

Just the right size for us. Great crew but some dinners in MDR could have been a little better. Fried chicken one night was dry and mostly bones. Windjammer basically had the same offerings every day. Was very bored ...

Wonderful cruise

We picked this cruise to go back to Bonaire. We had a great time and all of the islands were great. We love the smaller ships as we get to meet many people and get to know them. The 5 days at sea were very ...

Couldn’t have asked for a better experience

Picked Serenade Narch 30 for the itinerary. Had never been to St Croix and St Kitts. Serenade is the 3rd Radiance class ship we have sailed on. It’s pretty perfect to us. Distance between stateroom and ...

Places We Had Not Yet Visited

As the title suggest, this cruise was made for my wife and I. It was our 4th Caribbean cruise and by an amazing coincidence, all six ports of call would be new to us. It's not so easy finding a cruise with all new ...

Very wavy sea for the first 2 days and a lazy cruise destination like St-Thomas

Enough of white stuff and looking for warmer climat. After 19 cruises we can say that: We can get much better/longer stay for the same amont of money. RCCL has become a too large profit center on every ...

We chose this cruise for a "get out of winter" vacation. Have been on the Serenade before but noticed some things that have changed. It was obvious they are trying to save $$ to put into the new big ships coming ...
