Overall the ship is great!  I really appreciated the 3 floors of adult only serenity.  However the cruise ship was apparently having a staffing problem for this particular sailing because they were very understaffed.  They were slow in the service area.  They also did not have their normal activities because they were missing 4 of their activities directors.  The food was good but as I said 5 of the 8 nights we waited more than 1 hour for our dinner.  So you will definetly need patients.  The final debarking process was an absolute nightmare.  They were very unorganized and noone seemed to know what to do.  It took us 4 hours to get off the ship.  That was really unacceptable.  Overall we made the trip fun but the staff wasn't that great.
