Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Fodd was very good for the most part. I only wish that they could do a better job on baked goods. Cakes were good but pastries not so much. I am a donut and danish fanatic

Onboard Activities

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Had sailed on the Elation earlier this year and this ship is pretty much a twin. We liked it. Serenity is great and also the outside dining at the back of the Lido dining area

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Second time in a porthole cabin. It is priced as an interior room so a great value since you do have a view to the outside. I don't do balconies on shorter trips. I also like the storage area surrounding the portholes. Cant beat it.

Ship tip

Go to the highest level of the Atrium and watch as the ship goes under the bridge leaving port. Happens at about 30 minutes I believe

Ports of call

Nassau, Bahamas

4 out of 5
Its OK, have been there several times. Some nice beaches, shopping and of course the Atlantis Resort

Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island)

5 out of 5
Love it. Even better we were the only ship there and practically had the place to ourselves. Drinks are good. By the time they release the food it is not hot so I would go back to the ship to eat.

Disembarkation

This was probably my favorite part of being Platinum! First off and escorted. Awesome!
