I will be sailing on board the Serenade October 18th with a group of 12. Four of us are from the Big Apple, Six are from Colorado and two are from South Carolina. The rates on this cruise were so great, it was worth it for these folks to fly to NYC.
I had the pleasure of sailing on this ship in early September. She is absolutely magnificent. I have taken over 12 cruises, and I've never seen a more beautiful ship.
Be sure you get to the Schooner Bar, especially if you like martinis. The two bartenders there, Donjie and Krystian, are fantastic. If you stop by there, tell them I sent you. Chances are that you'll find me there every night before dinner and before turning in for the night.
Hope to see you on board!
On the Cruise Critic board there are several very recent reviews of the Serenade to Canada; and they are mainly very posivive. Several other cruisers for the Oct 18 cruise have posted on the RCI board and also the mix and mingle (Roll Call) board at Cruise Critic. We are trying to develop a get together for posters to meet and greet late in the day of embarkation. Feel free to join if if you wish. Jim
