Had a terrific week on the Jewel. This ship is due for drydock refurbishment in April but the heart of the ship is the people. More on that in just a minute. We had never embarked from San Juan before and it was a smooth process with ... Read more

We cruised on the Adventure of the seas in Feb 2016 and I was disappointed in many ways. First the ship was run down. The room was a sunset veranda but there was no view. We were told the view was partially obstructed. In reality it ... Read more

This was my wife and my first cruise with Royal Caribbean. We arrived in San Juan 3 days prior to our cruise as there are only two direct flights from the UK which are on a Wednesday and Saturday flying with Norwegian Airlines. After a ... Read more

We always start our cruise with 2-3 days at the Port of call. We stayed at the Embassy Suites hotel in San Juan. Great pool and love the free breakfast and Manager's happy hours each day with drinks/snacks. I never thought I was a ... Read more

The AOS is the smallest ship I have sailed on. I was excited for this and actually would love to go smaller next time. After reading cruise critic for over a year preparing myself for what could be a terrible mistake....., I was ... Read more

We've been on maybe 15 cruises on several different lines. Honestly, they're all pretty decent with some minor quibbles. This was our 2nd on this ship, Adventure of the Seas. Heard it is due for a major overhaul this fall (2016) but, to ... Read more

This was our 12th cruise on our 5th different cruise line (Carnival, Celebrity, NCL and Holland America). We’ve always had a good experience with RCL and liked the southern itinerary of this cruise, especially visiting two new ... Read more

This was our sixth cruise overall with this one being our second with Royal Caribbean. At our travel agent's insistence our group flew to San Juan a day before our cruise sailed. We flew on Southwest Airlines. There is no baggage fee on ... Read more

We arrived San Juan two days prior to our cruise and stayed at the Condado Plaza Hilton. We had a street facing room. The bed and pillows were very uncomfortable, which kept me awake, which made me realize how loud the street noise was at ... Read more

We believe that with the new auto gratuities, our stateroom service was very poor. Their was no friendliness or ambition to clean our room properly. We asked for our bath robes three times and never received them. We were told that they ... Read more

After 15 cruises with Princess and Celebrity, we took our first on Royal Caribbean. It was a true misadventure. First and foremost, the food served both in the buffet and in the dining room was dreadful. In the buffet, the food was ... Read more

I don't usually do reviews but here goes. The Ship itself was great, very well maintained and clean everywhere. Our Cabin maid was fantastic keeping our room clean and tidy at all times. The food was good but not always hot in the main ... Read more

Loved the Adventures of the Seas! It reminded me of an upscale hotel. Room registration was a breeze. Ate every breakfast at the Windjammer and it was good. Some people complained about not enough variety as its the same everyday at ... Read more

Food in the main dining room was just okay. The menu seemed limited in selection...my wife ordered hamburgers one night as nothing appealed to her. As the week went on the selection got better. There were less alcohol servers than prior ... Read more

Very disappointed in room. Closet doors came unhinged several times (they appeared to be held on by magnets?). They were changing plumbing lines on the ship overnight and we had yellow water from our tap for at least 48 hours. They said ... Read more

My wife and I flew to San Juan on February 4, two days before our cruise on the Adventure of the Seas. We've learned that midwest winter weather can really play havoc with your travel plans, so we always try to build in a cushion of a day ... Read more

The Adventure is a good ship with especially attractive and functional public spaces. It rarely feels crowded even with over 3000 passengers on the ship. Royal Caribbean runs this hotel at sea in a very professional way -- but as with any ... Read more

This was about our 5th cruise but not always with Royal Caribbean. We flew in a day before and stayed at the Embassy Suites in San Juan close to the airport. The hotel was nice with a nice pool. We decided to stay there until around ... Read more

This was the first time we did a back-to-back. One week goes by much too quickly, so it was a wonderful feeling when we didn't have to leave after one week. Since we booked our second week two months after our initial week booking, we had ... Read more

We've cruised with a few different companies in our 12 years of cruising. We've done 5 cruises with Royal Caribbean Adventure of The Seas, and this last time. We've been so disappointed that we're booking with another company for next ... Read more

We went on this back to back cruise to get away from the weather at home and see some sun. We were not diappointed regarding the weather it was glorious and we enjoyed our visits to the islands. We chose not to do any excursions and just ... Read more
