A Starry Cruise Ship

by Mr. Bang

We recently went aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise ship, a cruise ship named Serenade of the Seas.  It’s a pretty small class, and it has an awesome kids’ club!

The kids’ club is called Adventure Ocean.  Adventure Ocean is an area where kids hang out and play with counselors.  We do different activities.  Sometimes we do soccer.  Other times we play a little bit of video games.  Some of my favorite things to do were soccer and Skylanders.  Skylanders is one of my favorite games there – it’s a video game.  There were usually a lot of kids.  There were usually ten kids in there.  This was split up into ages 6-8, 9-11, and 3-5, but the older two groups were combined.

There is a rock climbing wall.  It goes to the highest point on the ship.  Three people can be on it at once.  There’s some colors that are hard and some that are easier.  I found that the harder ones were actually easier for me.  I climbed it several times.  I didn’t do it every day.

There is also an arcade.  You have to pay money to play the games.  There was one free night, though.  There were really awesome games there, except two of them.  Two of them were games where the player is shooting people.  There was a game where you were a little plane.  You had a stick to move it from side to side and you were shooting at little monster things.  On free night, it still cost but it was less.  The games that you don’t get tickets from were free.  You can trade tickets in for prizes.

There is a waterslide at the kids’ pool.  That waterslide is a really good one.  The waterslide goes round and round, but it does not go into the pool.  It goes into a little side area that is next to the pool.  The pool was really shallow – it was two feet at the deepest, and there was a little toddler area that was only an inch deep, and the toddlers have their own tiny waterslide.  There are waterslide races.  My experience was that the biggest person got the gold medal.

The mini-golf is on the top deck and it’s at the back of the ship, within sight of the climbing wall.  There are 9 holes.  They were pretty average in terms of how challenging they were.  This was a place that I absolutely loved!  The mini-golf was my third favorite thing on the cruise ship.  (Rock climbing was my first, and kids’ club was my second.)

Our stateroom was pretty big.  It had two bedroom areas and one bathroom.  There were bunkbeds.  The bottom one was the comfier one, that was the one I slept on mostly.  Character Queen had it some, too, though.  We saw ocean mainly out the windows, and a little bit of island life, tropical life.  Our room looked out onto the helipad.

Windjammer is a buffet that’s open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  It has a variety of foods, anywhere from a hot dog to a salad.   I ate in it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner two days.  One of the foods I absolutely loved was lemons.  I think that the food in Windjammer tastes really good.

On port days, you can only eat breakfast and dinner in the Reflections dining room.  On sea days you can eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  At dinner, you will always eat at the same table as on the first day of the cruise.  Lunch and breakfast you come in and are just seated. At dinner, you go to a special table for you and your group, and you will always have the same waiters or waitresses.  Our waitresses were really nice.  They learned what we want to drink and, for most of the adults, what they would eat.  And they would just bring the food.  The food is great!  One of my favorite foods in Reflections was the chicken breast or the steak.  That steak was good!

I think this cruise would be good for all ages.  I love it!  I’d give it 2,556 stars.
