We have been on both ships. We love the Serenade, but the gripe we have about all Royal Caribbean ships is the constant announcements. We get tired of hearing about the art auction, the sexy legs contest, the belly flop contest, and especially about the upcoming bingo games.
You will have to decide between price and "privacy". Given the cost and the difference in accomodations, I would go with Royal Caribbean. Why? I want the balcony every time, and I can tune out the announcements.
