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 (964 ft 7 in) long, 32.3 metres (106 ft 0 in) wide, has a 8.5 metres (27 ft 11 in) 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 passenger cabins.

Homeports

Serenade of the Seas sails the Caribbean, departing from her home port of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, during the winter months. During the summer months, Serenade of the Seas sails the Baltic Sea leaving from the home ports of Copenhagen, Denmark, or Stockholm, Sweden. Starting in August 2016, Serenade of the Seas started sailing out of Boston, Massachusetts until the beginning of October when the ship relocated back to Florida. Starting in May 2020, Serenade of the Seas was scheduled to sail out of Vancouver, British Columbia until the beginning of September when the ship relocated to Sydney, Australia, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, these sailings have been canceled.
