Overview

Serenade of the Seas first debuted in 2003, but don't underestimate what a facelift can add. After some extensive upgrades in 2012 and again in 2017, the ship now features more dining options, upgraded cabin amenities, new lounges and bars and a poolside movie screen. 

Guests can dine at three complimentary eateries, including the two-level main dining room. The six specialty venues include Izumi Asian Cuisine, Rita's Cantina and more. 

Recent passengers were complimentary of the service across the ship. With up to 2,476 guests and 848 crew members, the ship maintains a crew-to-passenger ratio of 1-to-3. Similar to other Royal Caribbean ships, Serenade of the Seas features four stateroom categories: Interior, Ocean View, Balcony and Suite. Studio Interior rooms cater to solo travelers at 108 square feet, while groups can opt for Suites that span 282 to 1,156 square feet. All cabins include flat-screen TVs and updated showers.

During the day, travelers can enjoy a rock climbing wall, a mini-golf course and six pools and whirlpools. Evening entertainment is a just as varied, ranging from Broadway-style performances to acrobatic shows. You'll also have your pick of many bars and lounges.
