January Cruise

Sail Date: January 2013
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan

We have cruised 17 times in the past, this was our 8th with Royal Caribbean and the most disappointing. The Adventure of the Seas sailed from San Juan, and we should have realized the majority of passengers would be from Puerto Rico.

This meant everything took twice as long - all announcements, shows, etc. were in Spanish & English. The Windjammer was a disaster. Pushing, shoving, etc. just to get food before anyone else? The worse part of the cruise were the many private parties being held. Most evenings it was impossible to walk in the corridors or climb the stairs because of the crowds and so many children. and the entertainment? The final night the show was a man spinning plates on a stick. really? this is the best Royal Caribbean could come up with?

On the plus side, the food and service in the dining room was wonderful. The staff went out of their way to welcome and serve us. The disembarking process went very smoothly. And I applaud Royal Caribbean's More new system of not using paper envelopes for prepaid gratuities.

We will certainly cruise with Royal Caribbean again in the future, but only from Florida. Less
