The March 2nd sailing of the Serenade of the Seas was the first back to back cruise we had ever had the pleasure of taking. The first leg of our adventure started on the Serenade on the February 21st sailing. We had no idea what a B2B was when we first saw the term on our roll call. After discovering that people really did do a cruise, stay on the ship and do another one we knew it was ...

Serenade of the Seas: Outstanding Ship-Excellent Cruise

As our cruise date approached, I was a little nervous about going on the Serenade of the Seas by Royal Caribbean. We had been mostly on larger ships and the information I was ready on the blogs made me wonder if we had made a mistake. We were pleasantly surprised and as always when we sail on Royal Caribbean totally happy with our decision! Embarkation and disembarkation went as smooth as ...

My mum chose the itinerary as she'd never been to the Caribbean. Its a smaller ship, which is easier to navigate around, but also much easier to meet people & make friends which is exactly what happened. The staff were warm, friendly but quick & efficient. The food was excellent, and the rotten weather couldn't spoil the mood. In fact due to the bad weather we had to find social things to do ...

Our community picked this cruise because it had southern Caribbean ports and left from Fort Lauderdale and not San Juan. 75 of us went on this six port intensive and four sea day cruise. While the 75 of us just had this cruise, we met many others that enjoyed this as a B2B, and even up to a 6B2B! I can see why this is popular for the cruising fanatics. Food was great, service was fantastic, ...

Good Crew - Bad Management - Poor Execution

Royal Caribbean's business policies have ruined this ship. The crew works hard, but you can't fix things from the back seat. It became obvious two days into an eleven-day cruise that there would be less to do more. Stateroom attendants must take care of more rooms. This means the room cannot be deep cleaned regularly unless there is an "accident" or event that would require it. Closets, ...

This was my first cruise with RCI and for those who say to make a good impression RCI did anything but. I will admit I am on the younger side of adult hood but that doesn't mean I shouldn't be taken any less seriously especially if I am a paying costumer. Lets start with the good things. I loved the service from the staff in the MDR. They were always willing to go the extra mile to ensure I had a ...

Booked this New Year 11 night southern caribbean cruise for our anniversary, how dissppointing to find the ship overpacked from the 2900 capacity to over 3300 souls, it was bedlam with large groups of overseas visitors rude loud noisy, and gangs of feral teenage kids roaming the bars and lounges each evening. Worse still was the workmen who set up on embarkation day to remove and refit the ...

Sailing to Bermuda for our 40th wedding anniversary. We were unexpectedly treated to a special cake at the Chef's Table dinner one night. Meals were very good, and the specialty restaurants were fantastic! The main dining room was good, with a buffet offered at breakfast, as well as the order off the menu. The main buffet offered a wide variety, from salad to pizza to Indian and Chinese food. ...

The first issue was the fact that we got rerouted to Portland Maine for a day (which I could drive to from NH any day for an hour and a half). So we really only had two days in Bermuda. The first day we had a good time at horse show bay. The second day we went to a beach closer to the cruise ship since we had to revised by 4:30 to make it back before leaving. The beach was suppose to open at 9 and ...

First let me say that my wife and I are not active cruisers, having taken fewer than 8 in our 50 years together. We prefer to plan our own trips and see things on our own. We chose the Baltic cruise on RCI because of the 3 days in St. Petersburg and we didn't want to try Russia on our own. It was a mistake we will not make again. If we ever cruise again, it will not be with RCI. Embarkation ...
