Bad Layout, No Serenity
Destination: Western Caribbean
Outside decks on level 3 have been reduced to spaces on either side which can only be reached through the lobby - no chance of going aft here. There are nice, covered side decks on level 4, even shown on the deck plan, but every access is marked "crew only" or the like. This is the only ship I've seen where you can't pass back to front along a deck space under the lifeboats.
On our first day, we tried the "serenity deck", More but a group of passengers had filled the hot tubs and brought their own boom box, blasting the two starboard "serene" decks with rock music. When I complained later to customer relations, I was told that I should have notified the crew member supervising that area. If there was in fact a crew member there, he didn't need anyone to tell him; he should have told them to put away the boom box as soon as he heard it.
This ship needs a revised layout and/or better control of activities along routes where passengers have to walk. And if it's going to have a "serenity" area, they should make it as advertised. Less
Cabin was spacious and quiet. Ship layout was terrible - see main review.
