Below also all videos from our cruise.
We got our cabin at 1:30 pm. Unfortunately cleaning was inadequate. Half bottle of liquor in a closet and used batteries and toiletries in a drawer and under the bed. In addition, much dust on surfaces and shelves.
The issues were rectified when our cabin attendant arrived at 5 pm, but not the most positive start of a our cruise.
Many years since we last sailed with Serenade. Around the ship to look at the facilities. Ship was in dry dock beginning of November 2017 - new decorations/painted, and new carpets on hallways, but still a bit worn after 14 years in service.
A well managed muster drill at 3:15 pm.
Departure was scheduled for 4 pm but was delayed almost an hour due to traffic in the harbour.
Enjoyed the sail away in nice weather conditions from our balcony and upper deck.
Initially we had booked My Time Dining at 6 pm but changed to 7:30 pm - then we had time for a drink in the Schooner Bar. Excellent dinner in the Reflections Restaurant and excellent service.
We saw two shows production shows with Royal Caribbean Singers and Dancers - 'Stage to Screen' and VIBE*OLOGY - as usual excellent performance and good shows.
It was a Thanksgiving cruise. Centrum was decorated for Christmas and a large Christmas tree in the Restaurant - Thursday the restaurant served Turkey and Pumpkin Pie.
We did eat in Reflections main restaurant all nights. Had made 'My Time Dining' reservation prior to the cruise, but did change time most evenings. Not a problem changing time - table with the same waiters most evenings. When eating early in the Main Dining Room there were a nice and relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant - while eating 7:30 pm athmosphere was a bit more stresses in order to prepare tables for new guests.
Breakfast and lunch in Windjammer - nice selection of grilled vegetables for lunch - enjoyed the food.
Despite the small issues with the cabin an excellent cruise.
We did not book any excursions - did only walk in port or city - see port videos below.
