Serenade of the Seas Cruises

4.3
(from 12 verified customers)

Serenade of the Seas entered service in 1999 at 90,090 GT, was refitted in 2017, and carries 2112 passengers. Serenade of the Seas’ most striking feature is the nearly three acres of exterior glass employed in its design - including glass elevators that span 12 decks giving ocean views. From every public space you are likely to see the seascape wherever you turn your head.

The ship is family-friendly, with large facilities for children and teens. It caters for large conferences, Wi-Fi ship wide, wheelchair access, and also couples wishing to tie the knot in the wedding chapel. Though large, the ship offers a good passenger space ratio. Décor throughout is warm and attractive and you’ll need good walking shoes to become familiar with the many public spaces.)

Menus feature healthy, vegetarian and kosher options. Special dietary needs can be catered for by giving advanced notice. Menus change daily throughout the cruise.

Highlights

  • Cruise from Vancouver, B.C. to Alaska in summer 2020, where Serenade of the Seas serves up snow-capped scenery everywhere you look. Onboard, panoramic views and acres of glass ensure you’ll never miss a moment of the wilderness — from breeching humpback whales to calving icy blue glaciers.

  • There are enough adventures onboard Serenade of the Seas to fill every sea day. Take in wild views from the top of the rock climbing wall or dig into delicious dining from around the world. And discover electrifying nightlife that keeps the thrills going long after sunset.

  • Whether you’re craving Far East flavors at Izumi or elevated Italian comfort food at Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen, bold and delicious is always on the menu onboard Serenade of the Seas. And if you want to really dial up date night, there’s the exclusive Chef’s Table.
