If relaxation is more your style while the children enjoy other activities, you’ll want to book some time in Serenity Adult Only Retreat. Here you can find yourself in a truly magical setting of tranquil calm, away from all the energy and excitement on other areas of the ship.

When you’re ready for some more outdoor fun again, you can try your skill at SkyCourse, a challenging ropes course with two levels of skill for younger and older thrill-seekers, or perhaps you’d like to play a round or two of Mini Golf with the family.
