Serenade Of The Seas Review

Review of Serenade Of The Seas

The 2003-built Serenade of the Seas cruise ship is the 3rd Radiance-class Royal Caribbean Royal Caribbean liner, with sisterships Jewel OTS, Radiance OTS, Brilliance OTS.

History - construction and ownership

Royal Caribbean International (RCI) is a US passenger shipping company, trademarked travel brand, and subsidiary owned by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd (RCCL, shipowner). RCI was established in 1968 and currently has over 1/5 of the worldwide cruise market. RCI also has RCCL's largest fleet as both numbers of vessels and GT tonnage (ship sizes and capacities). All RCI liners have names ending with "of the Seas".

Serenade Of The Seas cruise ship (Royal Caribbean)

The 2500-passenger ship Serenade OTS fits just within the Panamax measurements (with one foot on either side to spare). That means she, like her Radiance-class sisters, has maximum geographic versatility and might sail to and from just about any area. The versatility extends to the atmosphere onboard. The greatest strength of Serenade of the Seas is that the ship offers lots of options, from dining to amusement, and still remains a medium-sized vessel. Royal Caribbean carries through the layout of its Radiance-class ships approximately 3 acres of exterior glass, including glass lifts with ocean views.

Cruise itinerary program

Serenade of the Seas itinerary program is based on roundtrip Caribbean cruises from Fort Lauderdale FL for the most of the year. RCI Serenade ship also sails in Northern Europe on Baltic Sea cruises from Stockholm, Sweden and Copenhagen, Denmark. Serenade of the Seas visits the Scandinavian countries and Russia, with Transatlantic repositioning crossings between Europe and Florida. Another destination is Canada with Fall Foliage voyages to New England from Bayonne, New Jersey.

Decks and Cabins

Serenade Of The Seas staterooms (1074 total, in 32 grades) include 61 Suites, 517 Balcony, 247 Oceanviews, 249 Inside (3 Single). Most cabins are sized 165-190 ft2 (15-18 m2). Most cabin balconies are sized 45 ft2 (4 m2). The smallest is Studio Interior (110 ft2 / 10 m2). The largest is Royal Suite (1000 ft2 / 93 m2 plus 105 ft2 / 10 m2 terrace). Wheelchair-accessible cabins are 19.

The boat has 13 decks, of which 12 are passenger-accessible and 8 with cabins.

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

Reflections is Serenade's 2-deck high formal dining room. The focal point of its decor is the cascading waterfall. For dinner, guests can choose between assigned early or late dining, or opt for My Time Dining, in which you pick anytime between 6 and 9:30 p.m. Those passengers who opt for My Time Dining have to pre-pay gratuities. The Reflections restaurant operates under an open seating policy for breakfast and lunch. Food is delicious and offers a pretty good variety, including alternate menu items for guests on restricted diets.

Windjammer Cafe is Serenade's main buffet venue. It is open for breakfast, lunch, afternoon snacks and informal dinner. Numerous stations serve up pasta, burgers, salads and sweets. Portofino and Chops Grille are ship's alternative restaurants. Chops is a steakhouse venue with an open kitchen. Enjoyable as Chops is, the real highlight of Serenade's onboard dining is Portofino with favourites including tiger shrimp risotto and spaghetti with lobster sauce.

Serenade Of The Seas Wiki

Serenade is one of Royal Caribbean's Radiance-class liners, with sisterships BrillianceJewelRadiance. Serenade was completed in 2003 - built by Meyer Werft (Papenburg Shipyard). Vessel's godmother was the always charmingly smiling Whoopi Goldberg (US actress, Oscar winner). The naming ceremony was held in NYC on August 22, 2003. The inaugural cruise (maiden voyage) started on August 25.

All Radiance-Class ships were constructed in compliance with Panamax standards allowing marine vessels to transit through Panama Canal. Serenade, along with all her sisters, has gas turbines instead of diesel engines. This makes them more fuel efficient, also reducing the emissions of harmful gases.
