If cruise ships could sing, this one would be music to your ears. There's almost too much that cruise ship offers to mention it all-in fact, scratch that; there is definitely too much to mention. Take a cruise vacation to Alaska, the Panama Canal, and the Caribbean and have a blast in between your ports. But I'll do my best to give you as good a picture as I can about this 90,090-ton, window-laden, feature-filled cruiser. With 2,501 happy passengers sailing on her at one time, Royal Caribbean cruise line's Serenade of the Seas is making people sing for joy.
Okay I know you're interested in finding out what cruise destinations this great cruise ship visits, but first let me tell you what sort of cabin you could find yourself in as you're getting there. Oh, and just so you know, the first number behind each Royal Caribbean cabin class represents the square footage of the room; the second number represents the square footage of the balcony. The Interior (165) cabin is surprisingly spacious, an ample private bathroom and two twin beds that convert into a queen. The Large Oceanview Stateroom (170) is designed much like the Interior cabin, but features a nicely-sized window unto the world. The Family Stateroom (319); is the perfect place to start off each day of your family vacation. Now, when it comes to cruising, there's something having your own deck that makes the cruise experience all the more magical, and the following cabins can provide that feeling. Try the Deluxe (179, 41); with two twin beds, a private bath, and a balcony, it's perfect for couples. Or, for even more space inside, the Superior (204, 41) will have you living in comfort at all times. Finally, let's not forget the five classes of suites: the Junior Suite (293, 66), Grand Suite (358-384, 106), Owner's Suite (512, 57), and Royal Suite (1,001, 215). These suites have mini-bars, living rooms, very plush bathrooms; some even have baby grand pianos!
Alaska is unlike any other place in the world, and there are many reasons for that. One reason is that, as the "last American frontier," Alaska holds the distinction of having an American identity but also having miles upon miles of wilderness that have rarely felt the footprints of men, let alone the gazes of men. It's a great cruise destination that combines the best of Mother Nature such as Tongass National Forest, Denali National Park, and Glacier Bay bustling cultural hubs like Juneau and Anchorage, and charming towns nestled in the mountains, like as Ketchikan and Skagway. For an experience that is not what would be considered a 'typical' cruise, but what would most likely exceed your expectations, think Alaska and Royal Caribbean.
The Caribbean welcomes you. Tourism plays a vital role in the Caribbean economy, and it is no wonder why so many people flock to this area of the globe. With great duty free shopping in Phillipsburg, St. Maarten; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas; and Bridgetown, Barbados, it's no wonder why souvenir-hunters flock to this area. And, of course, one can't forget the stunning beaches and oceans of places like Cozumel, Mexico and Grand Cayman that bring divers, snorkelers, and beach-goers in droves.
Hawaii is another destination offered by Royal Caribbean Serenade of the Seas, but I'll give you one warning before you cruise here: You might never want to go anywhere else for vacation again! Tour the Japanese Yedo Gardens in Hilo; take a walk through downtown Honolulu; finally give surfing a try in Maui. No matter what diversion captures your heart, the green mountains, palm trees, and breathtaking beaches will be your guide.
The Panama Canal is arguably one of the greatest'if not the greatest'engineering accomplishments ever. Not just because of the monumental effort it took to construct it, but also because of the effect it had on global commerce, trade, and travel. It did nothing less than revolutionize the way goods were transported and business conducted. But aside from all that it sure is purty! In addition to traveling through Gaston Lake and the massive locks of the Canal, guests on Royal Caribbean Panama Canal Cruise will get to see Puntarenas, Costa Rica; Cristobal Pier, Panama; Fuerte Amador, Panama; and more-each place more beautiful than the last.
The Serenade of the Seas has multiple dining options onboard. No matter if you want to dress up in your best attire or just slip on a bathrobe, excellent cuisine and service are awaiting you. Reflections, the main dining room, is perfect for dinners with your sweetheart or the entire family. No matter if it is lobster, steak, or pasta you seek, this restaurant is an elegant option while you're onboard. The specialty restaurant Portofino is an Italian-lovers dream come true, offering classic Italian cuisine, as well as new creations that will have your mouth watering. Chops Grille is the place to go for steaks or seafood cooked just how you like. Seaview Café and Windjammer are two casual venues onboard in which the views are as magnificent as the food. There are also other food stations around the cruise ship, as well as 24-hour room service that will satisfy late night or early morning hunger.
As if the ports of call at which this ship stops aren't enough, the onboard activities in which you can get involved in between ports will almost make you wish the ship was moving a little slower! It doesn't matter if you're trying to keep up with your exercise routine or wanting to turn over a new leaf, onboard the ship you'll find a world of fitness options. Run around the sports deck, swim in one of the multiple pools, play a game of basketball (half court and full), work on your physique in the ShipShape Day Spa and Fitness Center. Or, the same place will give you a great massage, body wrap, or any number of spa treatments that will have you feeling and looking great! Keep your game up to par in the golf simulator, rack up some wins with a game of pool on the self-leveling pool tables, or play a fun game of table tennis. Whew! I'm ready for a nap!
Okay, take a deep breath and hold on; I'm going to run through some of the entertainment options you have onboard. Try to keep up. Have a cocktail or cold draught with your friends or sweetheart in the nautical themed Schooner Bar or the refined atmosphere of the Champagne Bar. When it comes to the view, the Viking Crown Lounge has 360 degree of sunsets and sunrises. The Safari Club, Zanzibar Lounge, the Congo Bar, and the Crown & Anchor Lounge are all themed lounges with a distinctive flare. Watch your team pull out a last-second win from the sports bar, Scoreboard. The Casino Royale is like Las Vegas at sea, and the theatre will have you wondering if you're not in New York at a Broadway play! If you have the energy, Hollywood Odyssey is all about the dance!
