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.

Royal Caribbean recently announced that its second Quantum-class ship is launching in spring 2015. Anthem of the Seas will call Southampton, UK, home in April 2015 and offer cruises to the Mediterranean before being based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., for the winter months.
