Default Viking Serenade Info

Hi! We are soon going on a cruise aboard RCI's Viking Serenade and have a couple of questions about the ship. Any information on the following items would be appreciated:

1) Are there tables for two in the dining rooms?

2) What's the best thing to do in Ensenada? Are there beaches worth going to?

3) Would like to rent a car right at the cruise ship terminal after debarkation. Are there agencies right at the pier in LA (World Cruise Centre)?

Any other tips/thoughts about this ship are welcome.

Thanks!

Nicolas

Been on it twice. Hope you aren't expecting much. The ship has been sold to a European company. It's last sailing is in November.

I don't remember seeing any tables for two. Sorry can't answer your other questions. The only thing we're ever done in Ensenada is shopping and the prices aren't that great. The wait staff in the dining rooms are great!

Thanks for the response. Yes, we do know that it is an older ship that will not compare well with the newer ones we've sailed recently (Grand Princess, Grandeur of the Seas, Carnival Triumph). However, we were in desparate need of a cruise fix and at the low price we got, this one we'll surely do! Plus, it's all about expectations. When you what to expect, it normally is less of a disappointment. Nicolas

I only remember seeing tables for ten.

Ensenada is not like Puerto Vallerta or Mazatlan. We wanted to try parasailing, for example but it wasn't available. Ensenada is a commercial fishing town with the usual tourist shops--souvenirs, liquor stores etc.

We took the tour to La Bufadora "Snoring Bull" which is a rock formation where waves come in and make a noise like snoring--but you don't get close to it. There are a lot of souvenir shops there too.

So I would recommend not going to La Bufadora--if we had it to do over again, we would take one of the others--the winery or the Mexican festival tour--

But overall, Ensenada is not a tourist-oriented town except for the shops.
