I enjoyed the destinations that we visited. The kids camp was very organized but I didn't like the fact that you had to keep picking up your child to take part in various activities instead of the camp leader's. I think the ship was a bit overbooked and that they needed more seating and pools. The pools and jacuzzi's either stayed full or was out of order. There were scorched eggs, over cooked food and the fruit was not ripe. The staff was nice but I think it's time to change cruise liners.

Cabin / Stateroom
The cabin's were clean and the steward was very nice and personable. The only downside was that we couldn't watch tv for the first two days of the trip and it took several calls for the maintenance staff to come and correct the problem.

Serenity deck was great for getting away if you caould find an empty spot or a chair that wasn't broken. The only thing is that there were so many people you really were limited on the main deck with minimal seating and space. Not enough drink servers and service took a while.
