This was our first cruise. We are couple in our 40's. We wanted to start close and small and this was a great invitation to cruising. The ship was big and nice but not too overwhelming. The staff was friendly and kept the ship very clean. We enjoyed the entertainment and the food. Wished there was another small pool in the Serenity over 21 area. (there were 2 hot tubs!) The other pools were pretty crowded so we didn't get in at all. Embarkation was easy and we didn't have any problems. Also wished they would have shown more movies! All in all, we had a blast!
