Cruised on several RCCL ships, including Oasis, Anthem, Enchantment, Freedom, Liberty, and other Voyager class ships, but Adventure has to be my favorite! Part of this is due to its size-not too big, not too small, and its Southern ... Read more

We have sailed over 20 times mostly with RCCL but had not done the southern Caribbean so decided to try it . Summary: Checking was ok. We were in a Jr. Suite and diamond plus so I am sure that helped. Cabin- it looked fine. I ... Read more

After reading a fair share of negative reviews, we were a little hesitant about booking this cruise. We wanted to go to these Caribbean ports, so we booked the cruise. I am happy to say that we were pleasantly surprised with the ship. ... Read more

This cruise was chosen for me; i went along to make up a double room. The trip began and ended badly, not the fault of the cruise line but it does impact how one feels about things,. On the way down, we sat in traffic for well over an ... Read more

Sailing solo, so what I write might not apply to everyone. First of all, the ship looks great after the refurb. She's a small ship that feels like a larger one. The crew was great too (although that's been the case with most of my ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the cost. It was a good deal. Maybe that was our firs mistake. The embarkation was disorganized; you didn't know what line to stand in. Next, the Windajammer Buffet was terrible. Rice and beans, hash, ... Read more
