  3. Serenade of the Seas
We selected this cruise to first get away from the winter cold of New England and by leaving Jan 19th, we missed a frightful storm by the hairs of our chins! It met our first objective with flying colors! Our second objective was met as we also selected this cruise because of its destination to Bonaire as we've been to Aruba and Curacao, but never Bonaire and we were not disappointed! The ship is an aging grand dame, but it is well maintained and sparkles like a jewel. Dining twice in Chops was our guilty pleasure. Our My Time dining experience was amazing and we sat most nights at a table served by two consummate hosts .. Michael our superb waiter and Million our impeccable Asst Waiter - both meticulous and punctual professionals who enjoyed their work. The food seemed to be an improvement over our most recent RCCL cruise. The entertainment entertained by a timely RCCL formula. I do admit that the singer and dancer numbers are getting a little ho-hum but not for lack of the troupe's performance - just because they are all starting to seem repetitive. I wish they would offer more Broadway plays - even condensed versions on the smaller ships. All in all, it was a successful mission and we were out of "dodge" for two weeks.

RCCL Serenade of the Seas is gracious and comfortable
