Food was really kind of boring this trip.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
I played pool and put-put for the first time on a ship which was fun. Then i attempted the rope course only to be reminded I don't like heights.

DJs were great, singers were okay, volume was high. Didnt make it to any of the shows this trip.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
O2 (15-17 year olds) was very loud with events such as pictures with Dr. Seuss, build a bear, DIY crafts and a magician.

Service and Staff

Every employee smiled, greeted us, asked if we needed anything

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The serenity decks are on the front if the ship facing towards the pool and dive in screen. Not very serene. Waterslides, rope course, put-put, pool tables were great!

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
I thought we would have a bunk bed but instead we had a cot for the third person. Not enough room to walk with the cot open.

Ports of call

Charleston, South Carolina

Charleston is beautiful with a lot of history. Visit the Angel Tree.
