I think you will find that the things that made Symphony special for you will be vastly the same on Serenity.

With that said be sure to visit Tastes whether it is for the late risers breakfast,...

What we've done from time to time is start a new sticky thread so that we start with a nice clean thread and close out the old one.

If you want to have a verandah that is larger and you don't mind being very far back (Aft) then these are good choices. You will have good views and not much different then a room with a verandah...

We've really had great success of late. I can't say enough of how wonderful the last two in New York City and Miami were and it's not like I tipped them up front. In Miami the guy could have said,...

You should tip them.

With all the criticism some have against them we have found them to be very helpful especially during disembarkation. Our last two cruises were an example of that.

Same for Bagels. At least that is what we said growing up in New York as to why no other bagel compared to a good New York Bagel.

You cannot reserved UBER in advance.

You would want to call them after you claim your luggage.

Their price will be close to half of a taxi.

From what I remember most of the taxis were on the smaller side so with four adults and assuming you have a good amount of luggage you might want to go with a private transfer.
