Things to remember: Onboard Serenade of the Seas

Here are some helpful facts to keep in mind when planning a holiday on board the Serenade of the Seas:
  • The atmosphere is relaxed, informal and welcoming.
  • A casual dress code is in place, but if you love to dress up, don't worry; there is usually at least one formal night per cruise.
  • Families are more than welcome, with several organised youth activities for children aged 3 to 18.
  • The onboard currency is US dollars and a daily gratuity of at least $12 is expected.

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!

Casual Dining

Windjammer Cafe: The Windjammer Café is the perfect place to grab a bite to eat before hitting the pool or enjoy a casual dinner to top off a day of adventure. Open almost around the clock, it offers great food, spectacular views and an attentive wait staff, all in a casual atmosphere.

Choose from a wide variety of food and a seemingly never-ending buffet for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks throughout the day. Serving stations offer salads, soups, sandwiches and burgers, meat-carving and hot entrées. And for your sweet tooth, choose from a multitude of cookies, cakes and frozen yogurt.

Latte-tudes: If you need your caffeine fix to start the day or just want to take a coffee break, head to Latté-tudes - our onboard coffee bar. It's the perfect place to sit down with a frothy latte and a good book, or maybe an after-dinner cappuccino with friends.

Room Service: Maybe you want to sleep in or just spend a night relaxing in your stateroom; either way, you still have to eat. That's why we offer room service to all our guests for breakfast, lunch and dinner, 24 hours a day (late night service charge applies). So go ahead and have breakfast in bed or enjoy a sweet temptation dessert on your balcony. After all, you're on vacation.

Beverage Packages: Drink packages are an economical and convenient way to purchase select drinks at our bars and restaurants. Kids can enjoy unlimited soda, and for adults, there's a soda package and a wine and dine package that includes a bottle of wine each evening at dinner.

Gold Anchor Service:
What is Gold Anchor Service? It's how we make your cruise adventure even more memorable. One thing that keeps our guests coming back again and again is our friendly and personal service. Maybe it's a server who remembers the name of your daughter's teddy bear. Or the bartender who remembers the extra olive. Or perhaps the housekeeper who reminds you of your dinner reservation time. Our unique style of service will enhance every aspect of your cruise. No matter where you are - the pool, the dining room, the spa or your room - get ready to be wowed! And we deliver it 24 hours a day. This is way beyond normal service. This is Gold Anchor Service.
