An Adventure to Remember!

Sail Date: June 2013
Destination: Baltic & Northern Europe
Embarkation: Southampton

Having returned from a 12 night cruise of the Baltics aboard Adventure of the Seas (Royal Caribbean) we cannot speak highly enough of the experience aboard the ship and the ports we called into.

Having previously sailed around the Mediterranean the Baltics cruise was a much nicer experience.

We were initially worried about the lack of activities and entertainment for teenagers but upon arriving on the ship we found that it catered for all age groups.

Adventure of the Seas, although it is an older ship, showed no signs of its age. It was a very clean and well kept ship and everyone on board, staff and passengers alike, were all very friendly.

Our dining experiences were all positive, breakfast, lunch and dinner. The breakfast we enjoyed most was when we went into Bruges, Belgium and the theme of the menu was chocolate! Well worth getting up early to go for breakfast!

We also attended a pasta making demonstration in Portofino's ($10 per More person). At this demonstration the chefs demonstrated how to make a variety of pasta, including chocolate pasta! As the chefs were demonstrating how to make the pasta, we were enjoying a true Italian sampler lunch. Well worth the money!

As usual Royal Caribbean are very slick at embarkation and disembarkation causing a hassle-free holiday.

To conclude are experience with Royal Caribbean continues to be very positive and we especially enjoyed this cruise due to its relaxed atmosphere and the ports of call.

The only downside to cruising the Baltics is the weather, which can be unsettled and wet at times. When packing keep this in mind! Umbrella and raincoat a definite must! Less

Private Tour

(5.5)

We did a 2 day city tour with Alla Tours. We were really impressed by them and would highly recommend them to anyone. We were met off the ship by Nada (our tour guide) who was excellent and we travelled on a minibus with 8 other people and this was much better than a Royal Caribbean tour. The itinerary was much better than Royal Caribbean and they were very prompt at getting us around. We had no waiting in lines as Nada was able to take us to the top of the queue for all the main attractions. This was a great advantage, especially on the first day when it rained very heavily.
