Glass and friendly staff everywhere.
"Our cabin steward and main dining room waiters were constantly using our names and it just makes you feel like home, which was lacking on the other cruise line.Thank goodness RCL still has live musicians who played for the main production shows – one with a rock feel, the other Broadway-with talented singers and some interesting set pieces for a smaller stage...."Read More

If you’re on the fence about cruising don’t be. This ship works extra hard to keep areas sanitized. Staff are friendly about it. There very few people on board. The food is fabulous, the shows are wonderful, first class. We’re so glad we came. We were on the fence about canceling because of the cruise with confidence guarantee. Everyone on the cruise seems to be enjoying Themselves. They are ...

This was my 6th cruise overall and second with Royal Caribbean and most likely my last with them. When I say this ship was focused on the older crown I mean there was next to nothing for two people traveling in their 20's to do on board. Hardly any activities, no good shows, no music, top deck by the pool was an absolute dead zone. Overall I was looking for a relaxing vacation which was easy to ...

This shorter 4 day cruise was really a lot of fun on a mid size ship. We really enjoyed the entertainment and all their Activities. Playing all the trivia and activies each day was truly a lot of fun. The Covid protocols weren't too cumbersome and the cruise felt very safe. We thought the food in the MDR was very good and both specialty restaurants were excellent. Our cabin was really well ...

Worst Royal Caribbean cruise ever taken

I have sailed many times with Royal Caribbean and a few others and I’ve always told others and only stuck with Royal Caribbean because of how nice everything is. This time was a nightmare. This was the first time my partner ever took a cruise and it was for her 30th birthday. She isn’t even exited about doing another. The staff at the main bar we’re above and beyond rude, half the items shown ...

Serenade of the Seas did not disappoint

we were visiting friends in Tampa so decided to tack on this five day cruise. The only hassle was the requirement of a covid rapid test since CDC required that it be done within 2 days of sailing. But we got it done. We are Diamond plus members but also have cruised on Norwegian, Carnival, Princess and Holland America, including a 7 day on the Carnival Pride out of Baltimore at the end of ...

Some good, but overall it fell well short of expectations. Avoid this ship and probably RC altogether.

My family of 7 booked this cruise about a year ago and were really looking forward to it. We got a 2-bedroom suite and all 7 of us stayed there together. Room number was 8668. We paid about $5,500. Family consists of two adults, and 5 kids, ages ranging from 10-15. Two were un-vaccinated due to age (vaccine was not authorized for their age at the time) 5 night cruise was originally on ...

RCL Serenade of the Seas-October 25 – 30--departing from Tampa Review for Cruise Critic: RCL Serenade of the Seas Glass, glass, everywhere! What we especially like about the Serenade was all the windows throughout the public areas wonderful for ocean watching – even from a set of elevators. There is also a true fully around the ship promenade deck on which you can actually get out to ...

Royal Caribbean changed our destination from Cozumel to Coco Cay without any notification one month before embarkation. Not only that but I bought an excursion for Cozumel and they didn’t refund my money. This was our first and last cruise on Royal Caribbean. We were so mad and didn’t find out we were not going to Cozumel until after the ship left port. There was nothing but one show per day in ...
