Review summary

Wish the staff called people out on the rules they didn't follow. Serenity constantly had chairs with towels that had been there for hours. Woman filled water bottle with the water spout, unsanitary.

Fire alarm went off, we were rushed onto the ship. Quickest I ever made it on the ship

Food and Dining

For the most part the food was really good, the German chocolate cake was fantastic. Not impressed with the steakhouse, not worth the money.

Ship Quality

Having to go up to go down never made sense to me but it's like that on all ships. Everything was always clean.

We did the kids water toys excursion. There were 2 water toys, drinks were lacking and the food was okay. Water was crystal clear and warm. Much better drivers than on the DR. :)
