For the little ones aged 6-36 months, there’s a dedicated club where they can play with their parents and guardians, making the most of all the interactive toys and games available. Older kids will have hours of fun at Adventure Ocean where they can make new friends as they play, discover and learn. Teenagers will be pleased to know that they haven’t been forgotten about as there is a nightclub just for them, perfect for hanging out and dancing to the best music without parents cramping their style.

However, a holiday is also about making memories together, so get the family together at the retro video arcade where everyone can enjoy the modern and classic games on offer.

Things to do

Royal Carribbean knows that there’s nowhere better to indulge in a bit of “me time” than on holiday and Serenade of the Sea is fully equipped to make this the most relaxed cruise you could imagine. Start off with a visit to the Vitality Spa, where treatments ranging from facials, to couple massages and even acupuncture therapy are guaranteed to help you forget all your worries. Continue with the relaxation by heading straight to one of the sun loungers by the pool- perfect for topping up that tan to make all your friends envious!

However, if sunbathing isn’t quite your style, there are plenty of activities onboard that will get you moving. To see the ship from a slightly different perspective, have a go at scaling the rock climbing wall and take in the breathtaking views on the way up (if you dare). Back down on the deck, there are lots of other sports to try out, from a race around the running track, to a game of table tennis or shooting hoops on the basketball court. For those who like to keep up their workout routine, the onboard gym has all the equipment you need to make sure you stay on track even when you’re at sea. After all that exercise, take a well-deserved dip in one of the pools to help you cool off, topped off with some time in the whirlpool to help those muscles recover.
