Ship Facts: Adventure of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Adventure of the Seas Deck Plans
Pleasant adventure
Embarkation went fairly smoothly but the main holdup was because of the ships photographer who made you feel that you ought to have an embarkation photo. We declined all of his photo opportunities as did many other cruisers.

We were in an inside cabin for the first time - the bathroom fittings were showing some wear & tear but everything was spotlessly clean. The bed had been made up into a double with a small side table on each side but you couldn't actually get down the side of the bed as there was no room at the end of it due to the furniture on one side & a double settee on the other!You had to crawl in from the bottom end of the bed!! Once the bed had been converted to 2 singles there was plenty of room & we really didn't mind the inside cabin.

A la Carte food was excellent at 6.45pm (first)sitting, staff were too. Buffet food in the Windjammer was not the best & once you had chosen your food there was often nowhere to sit & eat it. Why let diners in when there is nowhere to sit, especially on embarkation day? We saw long queues for My Time dining & were glad we had not chosen that option.

Drinks were expensive & staff were always trying to sell you bottled water, speciality coffees, freshly squeezed orange juice etc & this became annoying. Ice show was great, other shows were professional but little variety & for our sitting often did not start until 9.30 or 10am. There were few available seats in bars/lounges so you just had to wander around aimlessly for an hour or more until the show started. Shops looked good but there was little worth buying, just the usual cruise ship brands of watches, jewellery & clothing.
