Yes we did love it! My husband kept saying "awesome" all week long. My sister-in-law and I were not really excited about going (we enjoy warmth the best) but it really was enjoyable. We enjoyed Ketchikan the best. It rained the day we were in Juneau (which was very touristy) but I guess that was normal. They kept saying the weather was the best it had been all summer the week we were there.
We liked the Serenade but we had previously been on the Explorer and liked that much better. Even though it holds more passengers you would never know it as we never ran into crowds like we did the Serenade.
Next year it is Southern Caribbean (warmth) on Adventure of the Seas!!! Can't wait!
