Adventure is a beautiful ship. In order to fill the ship, it seems Adventure offered great deals to the residents of Puerto Rico. However those of us who are loyal to Royal and booked some time ago, were the ones to suffer the overcrowded ship. The staff was super and did their best, but were overwhelmed by numbers. We were disappointed in the shows, nothing unusual or unique. The two female singers were outstanding, the best part of the big nightly shows. We enjoy having unusual or unexpected experiences. Maybe because only one sea days, none of these happened. (Dancing in the promenade, drum bands, other spontaneous happenings). Enjoyed the big band concert in a lounge, not well advertised. Just lucky we noticed it so we could attend. Others told us they would have gone if they had known about it. We always love our cruising, just some more memorable than others. Read Less

We took the Adventure of the Seas for a Caribbean cruise in July 2017. The port in San Juan was a bit of a mess, but once we found someone who knew what to do with our luggage, and we got through security, check-in itself was fairly smooth and quick, as we had a Junior Suite, which entitled us to fast check-in. The ship was fairly recently refurbished. When we reached our cabin, however, the sink was clogged and the refrigerator was not working. It took awhile for these issues to be resolved, and admittedly, it was a disappointing way to begin our vacation. The cabin itself, a wheelchair accessible balcony junior suite on deck 10, was comfortable enough for three people, with a large walk-in closet. The mattress was quite hard. Royal Caribbean needs to do better. There are no upgraded amenities in the bathroom, and no niceties such as hand and body lotion. The balcony was quite comfortable, and I found myself falling asleep on the lounge chair on more than one afternoon, as the warm sun and cooling breezes lulled me. The cabin was wheelchair accessible throughout. Chops Grille provided excellent food, while Giovanni's Table was quite good. Both were well worth the upcharge. Food in the MDR varied. On some nights, it was good. Other nights, it was simply all right. Pastas in the MDR were consistently good. Food at the Windjammer was consistently . . . well, let's just say there was no chance of weight gain there. Johnny Rockets was always a safe bet for lunch. Service on the ship was generally good, especially among the dining staff. Ports were a bit repetitive -- many offered the same shops over and over again. St. Maarten was lovely; Antigua's shops quite good. Because I am in a wheelchair, many shore excursions were not available to me. I had researched as much as I could ahead of time, and reserved the Dolphin and Whale Watching Excursion on St. Lucia (which was amazing -- highly recommend). The Excursions Desk on board was rarely open, and Guest Relations (where we were sent when the Excursions Desk was closed) was not much help. This was somewhat frustrating. Really enjoyed the Vitality Spa, where I had a massage and got a keratin treatment for my hair. Great staff, great service, and wonderful atmosphere. Will travel with RCCL again, but not on Adventure. Read Less

We were in group 8, with an aged lady in Wheelchair. A couple of people were strictly vegetarian (Indian). No verity of Indian food at all. We ate Cauliflower for 4 straight nights. I have never had cold soups in my life but I have now. I had tons of options with another Cruise line (Norwegian). Definitely, needs improvements.Room service staff was very nice and polite. The server of the room of lady w/wheelchair had an unpleasant experience with him, which was kind of rude. we felt like step-child on Disembarkation morning. The overall cruise ship was nice, but CUSTOMER SERVICE comes first. I heard RC is #1 Cruise line among all and that was the reason we picked RC this time. Anyway, it was a good experience overall but not the way we expected. Night shows, not impressive at all. RC has a trained group of young kids who performed in 3 night shows out of 7. Definitely, not for everyone. Read Less

Love to sail out of San Juan. Love the relaxing atmosphere. Arrived at Pier rather early since we had a grp of 10 with one wheelchair. Had to stand line for a bit. Very hot. Porters started to take luggage at 11:30. Thought last time we sailed they took the luggage earlier. Check in was quick but then there was a hold up due to Coast Guard inspection. Safety First. so we have no problem waiting.. Served Water. The little store inside terminal does not sell Diet Coke or water when we were there. Last time they did.. Even with delay we were onboard and at WindJammer by 12:30. Our rooms were ready by 1:30. Our room attendant was great. The towels now used on this ship are horrible. Really rough on your skin especially sunburned. Torn and frayed. My son's attendant barely acknowledged him. My parents had an access room and their room attendant again barely acknowledged them. We did have a refrig but we had a balcony room. Muster drill was inside in theaters/lounges which was nice since it was so hot outside. I did purchase a drink package. We purchased about one week ahead so we got it about 20% off. But does not include special glasses. and if they have a special drink event you have to pay more for the cup or glass. OR you have to walk to another bar for the drink... Every little bit helps. I believe that the Cruise Compass should be given out as you check in so you can read it as you enter the ship or while you wait for your stateroom to be ready. By the time you read it you have already missed things.. Drinks of the day are not what they used to be. Sale price is 10.00. Used to be cheaper......Day 2 is supposedly always the formal night. Good to know. We have been on several cruises and did not know that. On this particular sailing folks did not dress up much. We were overdressed with all the guys in tuxes. The first formal we saw more long dresses but the second formal was more cocktail dresses. We are glad the Crown and Anchor Society now called Top Tier event.is back... We love the 70's nite but really do not like the Promenade for events. We miss the Centrum for events. It is really hard to negotiate the crowd from the Theater to the Dining room. Especially with a wheelchair. We also really miss the Centrum atmosphere for cocktails before dinner. The Lounge by the dinning room is really small and you end up blocking the walkways. Not enough seats. Day 4 Tried to see the Show at 7:00 but then wanted to listen to 50 & 60 Music at 8.0 Dinner at 8:30. Very tight squeeze. Not to Mention the 50 & 60 Music on Deck 14 club was very small they should use a larger venue. By the time you get a drink we had to leave for dinner. Did not make it to the pool party. Not enough time in the day. The wait staff seemed inexperienced and nervous. Asking us to give them a 10 for service. I guess more like begging. Was very hard to order drinks before dinner or wine with dinner. The food was ok. Lobster tail was served toward the end of the week. Along with Shrimp Cocktail. We have try to avoid this ship but really like the ports and love to leave out of San Juan. We wish Royal Caribbean would bring back the Radiance Class or Vision Class of ships. Sailings Thru the Month of May and not just winter/spring season. Read Less
