Why choose Serenade of the Seas?

The Serenade of the Seas offers passengers the perfect cruise combination - all of the facilities and amenities you would expect from a member of the Royal Caribbean fleet, in a friendly and intimate setting.

One of the best features about the Serenade is the ship’s panoramic views – with three acres of glass used in the design, including the lifts, there are remarkable views from every possible vantage point.

The ship’s dining and entertainment selection promises variety and excitement on your days and nights on the high seas and there are plenty of itineraries to choose from, year round. Whether you have your sights set on the grand cities of Europe, or the tropical islands of the Caribbean, there is a Serenade cruise to suit you.


Experience the best of the American South before sampling the magic of the Caribbean with a seven night Bahamas cruise, setting sale from New Orleans and calling at Key West, CocoCay and Nassau. When in New Orleans, make sure to check out the live jazz in the iconic French Quarter for an exciting musical experience.

Other itineraries include unforgettable transatlantic passages and Mediterranean cruises, meaning the world is your oyster aboard the Serenade.

Facilities and Amenities

Whether you are an adrenaline junkie looking to pack your cruise holidays with activities and adventures, a foodie wanting to sample gourmet delicacies and fine wines, or someone just wanting to just kick back and relax, the Serenade has the all of the amenities you need for a perfect getaway.

In line with Royal Caribbean’s reputation for catering to their passenger’s every need, the Serenade features state of the art spa and fitness facilities, beauty salon, 24 hour business suite and medical centre.

Activities and Entertainment

Whilst the main attraction of cruise holidays is undoubtedly the chance to visit the world’s most exciting destinations, it is also important to know that there’s plenty to do when you’re not exploring onshore. The Serenade does not disappoint in this area, with an exciting array of onboard activities and entertainment to keep passengers going from dawn until dusk, and beyond.

There’s plenty of opportunity to burn the calories you’ll be consuming in the Serenade’s fabulous restaurants, with a jogging track, climbing wall, basketball court, volleyball and three swimming pools to choose from. If you are looking to improve your handicap, you can try out the golf simulator, or if a more light hearted swing is more up your street, there’s plenty of scope for fun and games on the ship’s 9-hole miniature golf course.

Art buffs will love the Serenade’s onboard gallery, with exhibitions to rival even Manhattan’s collections, and there is a good selection of boutiques for shopaholics looking to get their retail fix between ports.

When the sun sets, the Sky Bar provides the best position from which to enjoy the ocean views and the Champagne Bar is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion. The Vortex disco stays open late to allow you to dance the night away - or you can catch the latest blockbusters in the Serenade’s very own cinema.

Mums and dads will be able to enjoy some relaxation poolside whilst the kids are kept busy in the Royal Babies & Tots Nursery, providing ample opportunity to enjoy some ‘me time’ and take in the wonders of the Serenade’s ten-story glass Centrum - or just truly indulge in one of the spa’s many luxurious treatments.


Sweeping ocean vistas aren’t the only crowd pleaser onboard the Serenade of The Seas. Play basketball on the Sports deck and climb the amazing rock wall, take a spinning class, or play miniature golf. Splash the day away in pools and whirlpools, or cool down on the ice rink, and chill-out with a yoga class. For extra indulgence, treat yourself to a facial, an aroma stone therapy massage, or even a seaweed wrap. Soothe your body and mind and relax in sensory heaven. Adventure Ocean facilities and Royal Babies & Tots Nursery will keep kids of all ages amused for hours. By night, see a West End style musical at the 756-seaterTropical Theatre, or catch a live band, split your sides laughing at a comedy show, salsa the night away to hot Latino rhythms, and down a cocktail or two in one of the many bars, lounges and clubs onboard. From sunrise to sunset there’s something for everyone aboard the Serenade of The Seas.


As with all Royal Caribbean vessels, the Serenade has been designed with passenger comfort in mind, with exquisite attention to detail. For a mid-size ship, the staterooms are exceptionally spacious and airy. From two-storey apartments with a private balcony, to more compact and functional designs, the Serenade offers accommodation to suit any taste or budget.


When it comes to dining facilities, there’s an option onboard, whatever the cuisine you have in mind. 5-star fine dining is available in the ship’s Main Dining Room, which allows you to pre-book a set dinner time for the duration of your cruise getaway, meaning you can relax in the knowledge that there’ll be a table reserved for you at the time you want. Gourmet Italian cuisine is the order of the day at the elegant Portofino restaurant, and families looking for a relaxed environment to enjoy a light bite will love the Windjammer Café.
