We have cruised RCI many times and made it a family tradition to cruise each Thanksgiving. After a good experience on Jewel of the Seas out of San Juan a couple of years ago we decided to try Adventure for this Thanksgiving. When ... Read more

We booked this cruise for the itinerary, but we have been on Adventure many years ago. I love the skating shows and the promenade. Embarkation was easy. Can't review disembarkation yet since we are still on ship...doing a B2B2B! ... Read more

We are first time RCI cruisers, prior cruises 4 on Disney, 1 Princess, 2 Carnival. I don't want to be unfair, but I was a bit let down re RCI--I am hopeful it was just this ship since we have a cruise booked in April on Allure. The ... Read more

This was our sixth cruise but our first with Royal Caribbean. Also, the ship was by far the biggest on which we have sailed. We were aware that the ship is an older one, and that right after our cruise she would be going into dry dock ... Read more

We picked Royal Caribbean since we have traveled on Celebrity and Carnival before and wanted to experience another brand. This ship was going into dry dock after this cruise for a facelift so it will be nice to see it when it reappears. ... Read more

My son and I both like the southern Caribbean itinerary but hadn't been there recently. Sailing from San Juan was a plus because we could easily fly in the same day avoiding the extra expense of an overnight there due to the Adventure ... Read more

This was my first cruise. I thoroughly enjoyed every part of it. The food was fantastic, service was stellar but the ship (due to dry dock and get a makeover this year) was a bit tired and in need of an overhaul. Due to a hurricane, our ... Read more

We choose RCCL as this was always our favorite cruise lines after doing 16 previous cruises with several other cruise lines. Well needless to say we were extremely disappointed for a number of reasons. First off, the only choice for news ... Read more

We cruised on the Adventure of the Seas eight years ago and really enjoyed it. When I saw the deal on a balcony with an itinerary that I liked we grabbed it! We are both 62 years old, from Arizona and this was our 25th cruise. We were ... Read more

This was our first cruise and it was great. Took us a few days to figure out everything the ship had to offer and after that we really enjoyed ourselves. We probably went overboard (no pun intended) with excursions as we did two in ... Read more

Cabin #9376 This cabin was in the aft of the ship. It is an "adjoining room". We could hear our neighbors next door quite clearly so next time we cruise, we are making sure our room adjoins no one. Our room was very well kept. ... Read more

We booked this cruise in February 2016 and my 2 sisters and our husbands just wanted a trip together. After losing our son in June, my husband and I weren't planning on going but in the end, decided we needed a distraction. It was a very ... Read more

Nice itinerary, although I would have preferred a sea day in the middle of the cruise. Five ports in a row was a bit hectic. No time to really relax and recharge unless we didn't go into a port. The ship is definitely in need of ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary and starting point of San Juan. We wanted lots of port days in interesting locations and we planned to extend our trip in PR for few days. Both ideas worked out very well. We were able to visit ... Read more

Had an enjoyable cruise. I feel like Adventure doesn't know if it's a charming smaller ship or one of the mega ships...it's stuck in between. It has a promenade, but no name brand stores (like Michael Kors on Indy). It has a Giovanni's ... Read more

Have been on many cruises with Carnival. We chose this one because of the itinerary. The ship, food and entertainment were lacking. We will not use Royal Caribbean again. The cabins are the same on both but this boat is tired looking. ... Read more

Very nice week-long cruise on the Adventure of the Seas. Although the ship is scheduled for a bit of a make-over this fall, it was still in very good shape. We liked the layout of the ship, particularly the main promenade on 5. ... Read more
