Royal Caribbean's Serenade of the Seas Arrives at the Port of New Orleans

Royal Caribbean International’s newly revitalized 2,360-passenger Serenade of the Seas arrives at the Port of New Orleans’ Julia Street Cruise Terminal Dec. 12 to sail weekly itineraries through April. The 965-foot cruise ship was completely refurbished in December 2012 and replaces Royal Caribbean’s Navigator of the Seas, which was home-ported in New Orleans during the 2012-2013 cruise season.

Serenade of the Seas has panoramic views and wide open spaces, as acres of glass enclose a nine-story centralatrium. The ship has multiple new dining options, three pools, including an adults-only retreat, and 16 bars, lounges and nightclubs. Serenade of the Seas also has the new Centrum experience, which includes the 60’s-inspired R Bar as well as multiple entertainment experiences in the five-story Centrum, including daytime activities, nighttime entertainment and a new experience where aerialists glide through the atrium.

Serenade of the Seas will sail Dec. 12 on a nine-night Caribbean adventure cruise to Key West, Fla.; Labadee, Haiti; Falmouth, Jamaica; and George Town, Grand Cayman. The ship’s regular itineraries will have seven-night Bahamas cruises to Key West, Fla.; Nassau, Bahamas; and CocoCay, Bahamas. As well as seven-night western Caribbean cruises to Falmouth, Jamaica; George Town, Grand Cayman; and Cozumel, Mexico. The ship will depart from the Port’s Julia Street Cruise Terminal.
