Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines Serenade of the Seas Southern Caribbean November 6, 2004

What a beautiful ship! We sailed Nov 6th out of San Juan for an 8 day Southern Caribbean cruise and couldn't have had a better time. The ship is visually stunning with everything revolving around the 9 story tall Centrum all in glass. Every member of the crew that we encountered was cheerful and helpful and Alan the Cruise Director was great (especially when another member of the Belly-Flop contest and I threw him in the pool at the urging of his assistants).

Food and service in the Reflections Dining Room was a 9 out of 10 and the Windjammer probably a 6 or 7; they could have used a bit more seating space. The shows that were put on in the theater were all good with the exception of the juggling comic; seemed to be pressing for applause a little too much. The ships dancers and singers were top notch and put on two "Vibeology" shows that were very entertaining; very talented individuals! With the exception of me spending time in the medical office due to a fall down the forward stairwell (my fault, rushing back to the room to tell my wife to come topside as we pulled into St. Lucia) it was all in all a wonderful experience. Wouldn't hesitate to do this cruise again.
