Royal Caribbean failed me on this one

I'm usually a fan of Royal Caribbean and have had two previous cruises with them that I would rate as excellent, but this one wasn't. My wife and I were celebrating our 20th anniversary and I had pre-booked an ...

Great trip

We took this cruise to see and visit areas we had not been to before. The shore trips we took were kind of boring. Need to research excursions better next time to really get the feel of what we want to see and do. ...

Customer service on Serenade of the Seas is surprisingly lacking.

Royal Caribbean was so disappointing this time around. The staff did not seem sympathetic to our plight of lost luggage, and assured us that we would be able to shop for clothes on our excursions. We were not able ...

Old Ship, Good Cruise

Embarkation: Boarding the ship was efficient once we passed the security checkpoint which was typically inefficient. We required a wheel chair to board. Ship’s personnel were courteous and took my wife and I ...

Couldn't have picked a better cruise!

What a great cruise! It cost a little extra for me to fly to San Juan to start the trip (than to Ft. Lauderdale, for example) but it was worth it since San Juan was great. We stayed at the Doubletree ...

The Serenade of the Seas is an easy ship to navigate and the Cruise Port Boston staff is great. Security is tight in Cruiseport Boston (fine with me!) but the embarkation process is a breeze. Fun to see the ...
