Should I expect to experience withdrawals.
Yes. I had no idea what was going on in the world. When I went on the Grandeur they had daily news that you could pick up by guest relations. This told little snippets of what was going on. I looked for this on the Serenade, but they didn't have it.
For TV we had CNN and Fox. Those were the only news channels. The other channels were RCTV and showed the same movies and TV shows over and over. We did hear occasional news from CNN and Fox, but I really did feel out of touch like I didn't know anything that was going on, including the days-of-the-week! Not that that's a bad thing. After all, I was on vacation!
