Ship Facts: Adventure of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Adventure of the Seas Deck Plans
Amazing Iceland and Fjords

We chose this cruise as we had never visited Iceland before and we weren't disappointed. The ship is typical of Royal Caribbean with the Royal Promenade in the centre and same bars etc. It was clean and well furnished with lots of new carpet throughout. We mainly ate in the main restaurant and the choice and quality of food was excellent, better than on previous RCCI ships. We used the specialist restaurant once and this was superb.Of particular note were the steaks which were always perfectly cooked. The only food let-down was in Johnny Rockets, where the food was of poor quality and barely warm.

Activities during the day were not good, relying on quizzes and spa demos. Films were shown daily on the open deck but the weather when sailing was cold so these were wasted. Films were also shown in the very small screen room, with only about 50 seats. Unfortunately the same 4 films were repeated throughout the whole cruise. Evening shows varied. There were 3 theatre company productions which were good. The rest were guest artistes, a very poor comedian, a hypnotist and a ventriloquist which we didn't see. An excellent string quartet brought humour to their act and a 60s group got a standing ovation.

We had a balcony cabin which was spotless and the balcony was of adequate size. We used room service several times for breakfast and this was always prompt, with a phone call given to warn you of its arrival.

The ports were excellent especially Reykjavik where we took the Golden Circle tour. This was 8 hours and included a geyser, waterfall, country park and hydro electric plant, with a meal included at a hotel. We felt this was good value for money as the guide was knowledgeable and we covered a large area. At other ports we explored ourselves and this was made easier by docking close to town centres so shuttle buses were unnecessary.The views seen on the slow, gentle sails down the fjords were truly amazing.

Embarkation/disembarkation were extremely quick and well organised and staff were helpful. We will definitely cruise in this area again and would recommend RCCI.
