If I could give Adventure of the Seas 10 or more stars I would. My daughter suggested Royal Caribbean International for our family cruise to celebrate my husband and my 50th anniversary. The family included 9 of us with our 23 month old ... Read more

We chose this cruise as part of our back to back cruise. week of 6-25-2016 and 7-02-0216. The cruise was very good, with very few problems. From arrival at the pier to boarding the ship it took less than fifteen minutes, can't say the ... Read more

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 are experienced cruisers, but this was the first time we cruised the Southern Caribbean. We loved doing five ports and found this itinerary to be our favorite Caribbean itinerary ever. We booked shore excursions through the cruise line ... 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

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

Embarkation in San Juan was slow. We should have gotten there later based on other reviews. We got there about 1 PM and there was a line to drop off luggage. We did not know there was another line to then check in. We should have had ... Read more
