Your adventure begins when you board the Serenade of the Seas in Tampa, FL, with a quick safety briefing at your muster station.

At around 4 pm, your cabin will be ready for you to settle into while the ship sets sail. In celebration, you join fellow travelers on the pool deck for the Sail Away Party, featuring live music and introductions. When it's closer to dinnertime, you savor the flavors of the sea at Izumi Sushi Restaurant where you mingle with Summit attendees, new and old, or maybe you check out the Reflections Main Dining Room for a supper of elegance. To wrap up the evening, you rock out to the Relapse Concert on the pool deck, followed by a whirlwind of entertainment, games, trivia, and even a dance party!

Start the day with a morning workout in the Fitness Center and indulge in a refueling buffet breakfast at the Windjammer Café.

Get ready to be inspired by keynote speakers Dr. Jason Jones and Joe Hirsch, and learn valuable tips and tricks from industry experts like Dr. Glenn Krieger, Jenna Glass, and Ryan Moynihan. If you're eager to get your tan on, you can even watch the simulcast on the big screen on the pool deck! After the lectures end, you grab lunch at the Windjammer Café and take a moment to decide if you want to stop and listen to Dr. Ilya Lipkin's lecture on Palatal Expansion, challenge Dr. Anil Idiculla to a game of basketball, or do both! As the late afternoon rolls around, you and your team participate in a team-building workshop with keynote speaker Dr. Jason Jones. Meanwhile, other doctors join the Belly Flop Contest, play in the mini-golf tournament, or relax with a massage at the Vitality Spa. For dinner, you decide on the Reflections Main Dining Room before your open evening. You finish off Day 2 enjoying everything the ship has to offer, from sports contests to dance parties, from live music around the ship to new releases in the movie theater, from the casino to evening theme parties, and so much more.

You heard other teams talking about how excited they were for their excursions, whether it's experiencing Tequila Village, visiting a real Mayan village, enjoying dolphin and sea lion shows, or indulging in a Mexican-style buffet lunch with unlimited drinks. Once you return to the ship, you get ready for the 80s-themed Prom Night. But before the party begins, you enjoy an excellent dinner at Chops Grille Steakhouse – the best steak on the ship!
