Serenade of the Seas
We are looking to book the Southern Caribbean 11 day cruise on the Serenade in March 2016. Having previously cruised on the Independence, Navigator and Liberty (and enjoyed every single one of them), this is a much smaller ship with fewer facilities.......but other than size, is the ship really that much different.......or might we be disappointed with the downsize so to speak??
Have also done a short 4 day cruise on the Monarch......also a smaller ship......but this was fine for only 4 days.
The only thing I will really miss I think is the Cafe Promenade!!
The Serenade is also an older ship........although has it been refurbished recently??
Also noticed from a photo that many of the balcony cabins are set back somewhat.....maybe giving some shade (welcome or otherwise?). Although it looks like the cabins towards the front of the ship are not set back, which is more in keeping with the larger ships.
Any up to date info and opinions welcome.....and in particular on this itinerary (Aruba, Bonaire, Barbados, Antigua, St Lucia, Greneda) which are all places we have never previously visited
