Best Cruise Ship Serenity Decks

Holland America Line

It used to be hard to find some onboard R&R on a cruise ship, where the pulsating bass rhythms of rock music and the buzz of fellow passengers chatting and splashing in the pool provided a constant backdrop to any activity.

Then Princess came along and introduced The Sanctuary-an adult-only, exclusive sun deck, geared toward peaceful relaxation- starting a new trend in cruise ship sun decks. Suddenly, Holland America, Carnival, P&O Cruises and NCL began creating their own versions of this shipboard hideaway.
