The cruise line provided excellent service and a terrific itinerary. From the moment of embarkation until we left a week later, Adventure of the Seas provided an exceptional home away from home. The food seemed to be even better than on ... Read more

We flew in late Friday and stayed at the San Juan Airport hotel. It was terrible hotel that should be condemned. It smelled bad and the rooms felt like prison cells. We woke up as quick as possible to get out of dodge and see if we could ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the itinerary. Living in South Florida you can only do eastern and western Caribbean so many times. The ports were very nice. The service on the ship was outstanding. The wait staff were very attentive and ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and we wanted to try another cruise line (already tried Carnival and Celebrity). I chose very good instead of excellent because we still like Celebrity the best. Every single port was great ... Read more

The ports were the reason we chose this cruise. But that is the only thing that was worth the trip. Customer service is NON EXISTENT. Never have I been more disappointed in the service at every single level of this ship. It started ... Read more

We flew into San Juan the day before our cruise and enjoyed our night at the Hotel Miramar. Highly suggest flying into San Juan the night before in case of lost luggage (which happened to us) or flight delays. There were 7 in our party, ... Read more

This was our first cruise in about 2 years, and our first RCI cruise since 2007. We sailed out of San Juan, and, just to be safe, we flew in the day before. We've been to San Juan on several occasions, and we really like staying at El ... Read more
