Ship Facts: Adventure of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Adventure of the Seas Deck Plans
Royal Caribbean never again!

We had a disappointing experience on the Adventure of the Seas. We thought the ship was tired, smelly and not very clean, as did other passengers. We have cruised many times but this was the first and last time with Royal Caribbean. It was very overcrowded with not much seating in any of the public spaces. Windjammer restaurant almost impossible to get a seat. Night time diningroom staff were great, breakfast and lunch not, some quite rude to passengers.

No show one night in the theatre as the captain was entertaining some passengers. There was other areas he could have used. Not enough tickets for the ice show for the number of passengers.

We took the shore excursion from Vigo to Santiago de Compostela. It was worth the cost and the guide was excellent.

At Gijon we were docked just in of the Atlantic next to a ship being loaded with coal. Did not appreciate that. Town was 30 minutes away. Spent a long day on board with nothing much to do.

Due to bad weather we missed Bilboa and docked at le Harve for two nights. Shore excurcions were very expensive. Staff knew nothing about the area. We had to take the shuttle bus, ($15 each, only two stops) then walked to the train station and took a train to Rouen. Great place to visit. Some people went on to Paris. Glad to see Southampton again. Getting off was well organized.
