There are a lot of places to find a lounge chair, just to lounge, if you are not going into the pool and we usually try to seek out one of those.
However, the Serenity area is very limited and I have seen chair hogs go out and put their books, towels etc. on the chairs - hours before the stated opening time for this area. I think they may have left them there overnight.
We have actually been able to use the Serenity are chairs 1 time in 6 cruises because of this.
Oh I forgot, those chair hogs are the only people on the ship. They are the only ones who are on vacation. They are the only ones who have paid for their cruise. They are the only ones on board who matter! To h**l with the rest of us!
