We chose to leave from Baltimore so we did not have to fly. The port is 4.5 hours from our house. It was easy to navigate the port. We chose to park at the port and sped $105 for the week in parking so we could easily get to our home and get on the highway quickly.
We embarked on time. The first day was a little disappointing as it took forever for our room to be ready and even longer for our luggage to arrive so we had to hang around for awhile before we were off exploring.
The first night was great but the weather was cool. Guys Burgers was perfect for a quick bite on our first nite.
The cabin was nice and spacious for the 3 of us. The steward was mostly attentive and left a towel animal for us each day. It had an amazing balcony and anytime we could not find place at the Serenity, we would lay out on our balcony. This room include a bedroom, dressing area, bathroom with double sink and shower / tub, a living room, and the large balcony.
