Royal Caribbean's Serenade of the Sea backed away from her berth at Seattle Pier 91, made a slow turn towards the west and slowly cruised away.

The ship passed Richmond Beach twenty minutes later. A  parade of ships will follow this month. It's a welcome sight that many residents of Shoreline love to view.  
The Ship has a capacity of 2100 passengers and a crew of 884. It was launched in 2003.

Later this month other cruise lines will begin runs north to Alaska; Celebrity's  Millennium, Holland America's Nieu Amsterdam, Majestic's Princess, Carnival's Miracle, Silver Sea's Silver Muse, Norwegian's Encore, and Royal Caribbean's Ovation of the Seas. 
Looks like smooth sailing ahead.
