First time but dfinately not the last

Sail Date: May 2012
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Other

Having fought against cruising for many years, my wife convinced me that we needed to try one. We booked a 7 night cruise on the Adventure of the Seas with RCI and frankly after 7 days I just wanted to turn around and do it all over again.

The ship was immaculate and spotlessly clean, the cabin attendant Ezra was brilliant as was our waiter Karim and her assistant Gladys.

The food was outstanding with a superb choice at each course.

One small negative, the food in the Windjammer tended to be cool and could have benefitted by the addition of a microwave to heat up the lunches. Quality of food could not be faulted as was the service from all the waiters. Everyone seemed so pleased to help us and all had great smiles on their faces.

The shore excusrions were good although a 1.5 hour coach trip each way to both Rome and Florence were a bit on the lengthy side and a such did not allow enough free time in the cities. The Ajaccio tour we would not repeat More as it can so easily be done on a solo basis as the ship docks in the heart of the city.

Company on the ship was tremendous and it was really nice to meet up at dinner and exchange tales of the day.

Overall a wonderful first cruise and we are about to book our next one once we agree on the destination.

Thank you Royal Caribbean for a great holiday Less

Cabin review: Adventure of the Seas Superior Oceanview Stateroom Deck 7 9348

For the two of us the cabin was more than adequate. Comfortable and large bed, closet fine, bathroom good, lovely balcony and cabin attendant was great

Port and Shore Excursions


Statue of David

(4)
Good tour but 1.5 hours each way by coach limited the actual sightseeing. Could have done without the stop at the leather factory where products were so expensive, nobody bought anything. Florence though well worth a visit we will return for longer in the future

City Tour

(3)
Too short

Colosseum

(2)
Just saw it from the outside and no photo opportunities

Historic Tour

(3)
No chance to take photos but tour guide was good with the information

St. Peter's Basilica

(3)
Too short

St. Peter's Square

(4)
Too long to get to Rome from Port, left just a short time, less than an hour of free time. Views from the coach of the sites was good but no opportunity to stop and take photos. We will go solo next time
