Day 2 - Key West

At 7 am, Serenade of the Seas arrived at Key West, the southernmost point in the United States. Most houses date from 1886 to 1912. Ernest Hemingway lived in the 1950s in Key West.
Hurricane Irma passed Key West in September the city has been restored in record time - in surpricingly good shape - tourism is an important source of income. The town was well organized and hardly any traces of the hurricane.
We started off the main street Duval St. where we visited the oldest house in Key West. Further up to Hemmingway's Home and back on Whitehead St.
An interesting trip through the old city.

Back on the ship we had lunch in Windjammer,  - spend some time on the sun deck and coffee on our balcony.

Tonight we had a drink in the Vintage bar before a show with 'Royal Caribbean Singers and Dancers' - "West End & Broadway Musicals turned into Movie Musicals" - as usual excellent performance and a good show - ended the evening with dinner in the restaurant - For starters: Smoked duck breast, main course Entrecote and apple pie with vanilla ice cream for dessert.
