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 ...
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, ...
Decided to take a trip with my best friend. We left San Juan and were only gone for a week but it felt like a month. All the Southern Caribbean islands are beautiful. We have zero complaints at all about our trip, lifetime of memories. ...
We are experienced cruisers over the last 20 years. We have been on the Jewel before doing the cruise to the Southern Caribbean. I am retired but my wife is still working. We like to get away from Boston and head to the Caribbean.
We've sailed on RC a number of times. There were a number of great improvements, and a few missteps.
1. Glad to see that there was no excessive pushing of drinks in the pool areas.
2. Glad to see that there was no excessive ...
We chose this cruise because of the ports. I was really looking forward to the above average food that i had heard about. Our food was just OK. The flavor was always the same. Nothing exciting.. and not easily accessible . I guess we ...
This was our 10th cruise, 9th with RCI. I was happy that the ship was coming out of dry dock a week before our cruise. Unfortunately, we were notified just before our cruise that the ship was not complete due to issues with the dry dock ...
We decided to a B2B cruise as the cost of flying to Puerto Rico is pricey. We have cruised many times with Royal and other lines as well , over 40 weeks of cruising.
We were looking forward to all the upgrades to the Adventure but with ...
The service was excellent. No matter who you talked to or what they were doing, the staff on board were happy and eager to help.
The food was plentiful and good; service in the Dining Room was exceptional
Loved the frozen yogurt ...
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.
This was my family and I first Royal Caribbean cruise recommended to me by my co-workers. My children age range from late teen to young adult, they all out-grew my beloved favorite Disney Cruise vacations :(
We had such a great time on ...
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!
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.
My husband and I (ages 50) went on this cruise. This was my 7th cruise. It was the first cruise without children. We sailed on November 14th, the first cruise after dry dock. We got a great upgrade to the Royal Family Suite. I will try to ...
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 ...
We stayed at the sheraton casino by the port, nice hotel and pool over looked the harbor.
We where on the ship the last cruise before they where going to dry dock and do a make over of the ship. It was nice you had know clue of that, ...
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.
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 ...
I went on a cruise with my best friend and I in one room and my dad and his girlfriend in another. We sailed out of San Juan and were droven directly to the port from the airport. Embarkation was smooth and only took about 30 minutes from ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Well we just returned from our 9/10/16 departure from San Juan Royal Caribbean Adventure of the Seas cruise,,,it was the most disappointing cruise I've ever taken...until this cruise, we have ALWAYS bragged on Royal Caribbean, but no ...
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 ...
I have been on over 30 Royal Caribbean cruises! Diamond Plus!
I have been on many other cruise lines.
Overall ,I feel that Royal Caribbean gives you the best experience ,and value for your money.
I do prefer the Oasis and ...
