Layout

Serenade of the Seas is a gas-turbine vessel. This system produces higher efficient speeds than other cruise ships, and lower emissions than diesel cruise ships, but its drawback is its higher fuel consumption as well as the demand for higher quality fuel. She is 294 metres (965 ft) long, 32.3 metres (106 ft) wide, has a 8.5 metres (28 ft) draft, and has a cruising speed of 25 knots (46 km/h; 29 mph). There are 12 passenger decks, serviced by 9 passenger elevators (6 of which are glass and either look over the Centrum atrium or outside the ship through a glass wall). The ship holds 2,490 guests and 891 crew. It is powered by two smokeless gas turbines, each able to produce up to 25.25 MW (33,860 hp) of power. There are a total of 1,055 staterooms aboard, 829 of which are ocean view, 589 of those have balconies.

The ship has 10 restaurants and eateries: Reflections Dining Room; Windjammer Café (buffet style); Izumi (Japanese); Giovanni's Table Family Style Italian Restaurant; La Cucina; Chops Grille Steakhouse; Rita's Cantina (Mexican); Park Cafe; Chef's Table; Latte'tudes coffee & snack bar; and 24-hour room service. On the top decks are other services and amenities available to guests: the Day Spa and Fitness Center, Beauty Salon, Solarium (indoor, adults-only, pool area), half court basketball, rock-climbing wall, nine-hole miniature golf course, jogging track, three pools, and three whirlpools.

The ship hosts a 756-person theater (Tropical Theater), outdoor poolside 220 square foot movie screen, 9 story central atrium with aerial Cirque du Soleil type performances in the evening, Casino Royale with slots & table games, 16 bars & lounges (including one non-alcoholic bar in the teens-only Fuel Disco), Card room, Billiard room with 2 self leveling pool tables, a library, two nightclubs (Fuel Nightclub for teenagers, Vortex for 18 and older), Diamond Lounge, Concierge Lounge, an indoor cinema, and an arcade. For children there is a day camp for kids 3 and up and a nursery (Royal Babies) for 6 to 36 month old babies and toddlers, a small pool area with a water slide (Adventure Beach), and the Adventure Ocean Youth Area.

On board there is a conference center, and the ship hosts pervasive wireless internet connectivity at a charge of 65¢ per minute. Guests can also access the internet through the RC Online Internet Center. The ship also contains many shops, a photo and art gallery, business center, and medical center.
