Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Got to try new things. Food was delicious, service was good. We had any time dining so our servers weren't the same every night.

Onboard Activities

Played some trivia, won once. Spent most of our time in the Serenity area.

I think this was my favorite port. Lots of things to do, beautiful architecture. Tequila tour was great!

Mazatlan, Mexico

5 out of 5
The blue line was an adventure. The port is a working port so you have to tram in.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

5 out of 5
It's a tender port.

Long Beach (Los Angeles), California
