My kids sailed with 2400 grandparents and had a blast!

We got to embarkation on the early side and waited in a line at the port for a little bit, but once it got moving, the process went quickly. The first thing we noticed was there were a lot of retirees. Always the ...

The food was horrible

The Serenade of the Seas had the worst food that I have had on my 8 cruises. During the day, the Park Café was mediocre with mini quesadillas being the best thing on the menu. At night, the available food was cut ...

Serenade of the Seas desperately needs refreshing

We generally cruise Princess but had heard RC was comparable. However, this ship is in dire need of a makeover. The public areas are quite small and they cram you in the main "Centrum" area. We had a large family ...
