Get the group up close and personal with gorgeous shoreline views onboard Serenade of the Seas. Wide expanses of glass and elevators facing the sea make this ship one of the most panoramic ships in the fleet.  On deck, three pools, a rock climbing wall, a mini golf course and a running track will turn breaktime into fun time. And there's no shortage of options for recharging- perhaps among cascading waterfalls at the adult-only Solarium, or in the tranquility of Vitality Spa.  Plus, with eleven dining options, broadway style entertainments, Casina Royale and exciting nightlife venues, it's not hard to see why this action packed ship will make this trip the best yet.
