We will be there with at least 2 other couples. If the Serenade is like the Liberty it should be great. Check out the Roll Call Board. It has been dead and we need to liven it up.

We will be with you. Three retired couples. We did a 7 night on a sister ship, the Liberty of the Seas, and loved it. Hoping that the Serenade is as much fun. We hit a couple of these ports last...

You don't need it, until you need it. Three years ago my wife fell and fractured a vertebra two weeks before our booked cruise. Our trip insurance paid everything but a small booking fee. We got...

We have sailed RC three times and they had an Adult only pool and hot tubs. The best way to avoid kids that we have found is to sail in the winter, away holidays and take longer cruises. 7 nighters...

I would settle for a good band. The last one that I saw was Blood Power and that was several years ago. They had 7 or 8 man orchestras 15 years ago, but they are gone on the cheap ships that we...

You have cruise fees, port taxes, gratuities and excursions. Onboard extras would be Specialty restaurants, drinks, pictures and store purchases. We rarely spend over $200 onboard.

This.

I am old now, but I have not, nor, ever will let a 12 year old dictate what they will or will not do. That includes grandchildren now.

Never had a bad cruise. We have had rough seas, rain, canceled ports, long-g-g-g lines at embarkation when one of the cameras quit working and there was...

This is pretty much the same consensus that we have and we have sailed Carnival 11 times. I must say that the entertainment in the lounge on Norwegian was some of the best that we have had so far. ...

We have spent a lot of time on the Elation. Never saw many kids. They have a very good children's program and all of the parents and youngins that I have quizzed have all praised the staff for...

Not a big fan of GTY, but we have done it a few times. One trip we had a cabin under the formal dining room. Every morning around 2:00A.M. we had chairs and tables scraped and thumped above our...

The temps usually run 75-85 degrees up in the day. A light jacket and light rain gear have come in handy on a couple of our trips. Water temps in the 70's. Don't forget your sunscreen and...

We grabbed a cab at port and drove to Soufriere. Saw some nice vistas, the Pitons, and visited a volcano. Don't remember the company though. The roads are steep and winding so you might want a...

All I can say is Congratulations. I will take Bermuda over the Bahamas any day. Especially with the ship in port for 3 days. Go have some fun.

I concur with the price but if you have a driver like the last one that we had it will take about 10 minutes to get there. Our driver ran 90-100 mph in a taxi that was falling apart. Longest prayer...

We are with Yvonne. We get one every year in October and we usually cruise in November or December. When you get semi-over-the-hill you need to take every precaution.
313 days until a 10 night on Serenade of the Seas.

Western Carib if you want to swim. We did the Bahamas in April and the water was colder than I care for. Cozumel will have water temps in the 70's, Belize and Honduras will be a little warmer.

We have been to Cozumel 11 times and have hit several different beach clubs. Play Palancar is one of the beaches farther away from the ships. Chankanaab Park is my wife's favorite. We have been...

We visited ST. Lucia last month and went to a Volcano. Yes, it could erupt and blow half of the island away. It hasn't in over 200 years, but could especially with all of the volcanic activity of...

:cool:I want to thank you for your reviews. I used some of your recommendations on our 10 nighter 11/28-12/8.

We went to shipwreck and had a nice lazy day. I walked up to Carambola and must...

Really depends on what you want in a beach. We went to Shipwreck 4 weeks ago. It is a small rustic semi-rundown spot that is laid back and cool. Food, drink and service is good. The lounge chairs...

I can attest to this. We have taken our share of 5 and 7 night cruises during the fall, winter and spring. Our last cruise was a 10 night eastern out of Miami 3 weeks ago. The Norwegian Sun that...

Another example. My wife fell and fractured a vertebrae two weeks before a cruise. Because we had trip insurance we recovered all but the booking fees. We booked within a year of cancellation and...
