This was the largest ship that we had ever been on, but I understand that it is considered small for Royal Caribbean's fleet. It did not seem too big once we got our bearings. However, the wait for the elevators at the center of the ship ... Read more

We just returned last night from a wonderful visit to some excellent ports. We chose this itinerary because it stayed overnight in St Petersburg and included Riga. Every port was charming, and St. Petersburg is definitely worth the two ... Read more

My wife and I booked this cruise with our 9yr old twins and her parents. We had booked this particular cruise because of the itinerary, as we had always wanted to see Russia, and figured this was the most cost effective and easiest way. ... Read more

Cabin was ok. The hallway was smelly at times. Poopy smell. The towels were smelly. Windjammer had decent variety of food. But, some days the food was stale. Plus some tables were smelly near the kitchen. Too much traffic and turn ... Read more

The Serenade of the Seas is a beautiful ship. It is clean and well maintained. We were excited about our Scandinavian Cruise. We had spent two weeks on a river cruise through Russia (St. Petersburg to Moscow) but were still excited to ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary since we'd heard from multiple people that a Baltic cruise was a "must do". While we were very impressed with the ports of call, the ship left something to be desired. We had read that the ... Read more

I really enjoyed this cruise, but the excursions in Russia are really too expensive, the shuttles to the city centers are much too expensive, and sometimes the boat did not seem well maintained, stained cushions, cushions and carpets Dirty ... Read more

Rude staff, poor service, very unresponsive to needs. Food quality was very bad. Breakfast: Orders that had any variation from the menu, for example no cheese on my egg, were often wrong because the staff did not understand english ... Read more

First cruise. We have traveled all over the world but never by ship. This is a great way to see the Baltic countries. Riga and Tallin were especially surprising, beautiful cities. Loved the history of St Petersburg. Only 5 hours ... Read more

This should have been the cruise of a life time - visiting Scandinavia, Russia and the Baltic states. Instead, it was an average cruise with reasonable on board comforts and good food BUT a shore excursion department probably controlled by ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the wonderful itinerary, and this never disappointed. However, Let me say this was not the usual Royal experience. We purchased the beer/wine/soft drink package but really was rarely able to use as pool ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the itinerary. The overnight in Stockholm, our embarkation city, allowed us to fly in on the day of the cruise, rather than fly in early to assure we did not miss the ship due to air travel delays. There were also ... Read more

Worse ship I've sailed on yet. We booked this for the amazing itinerary - lots of port days and only one at sea day. We booked private excursions on most of the ports - did "on our own" in Riga, Klaipeda and Fredericia. The ... Read more

We cruise on the average of twice a year, usually on Royal Caribbean. The staff on this cruise was one of the most dedicated and friendly of any in recent years. Our cabin attendant, Ernesto, our wait staff in the MDR and the Windjammer, ... Read more
