I just came back from Adventure Of The Seas ... It was my first cruise and it was amazing from the beginning to end ! ... Getting on the ship in Cape liberty was quick ... We got on the ship at 11 by 1 our bags were at the rooms already .. I had a balcony room it was a nice size for two people it had a little couch also and a makeup area. The balcony was my favorite I would deff recommend to get one ... The pool area was beautiful plenty of bars the drinks were excellent!! I don’t drink a lot so I only got the refreshment package but I will deff be getting the alcohol next time .. coco cay is so nice there’s everything on it ... chairs everywhere to sit or u can upgrade and spend money on a cabana .. We did the jet ski tour it was well worth !! The boat brings ur lunch on the beach which was cool and that’s Royal Caribbean’s island so all the drinks were free if u had the package there’s all little huts and hair braiding there’s even a bar in the water ... Florida we went went to the beach with the shuttle it brought us right there and right back bet relaxing... Nassau we did the Belmont island and that was gorgeous!!! It rained on an off but it was still insanely nice the only water you can see crystal clear there was two pools optional swim with dolphins ... the only thing is the food and drinks where a little expensive but we got a few drinks and went back to the boat to eat when we were done ...The main dining room was delicious the waiter Ramil and he’s helper Pablo was the best and the room cleaner edy was great to ...The food was great every day and we did the buffet at the windjammer which had everything...

Chosen for port of Embarkation and cost. Unfortunately, with everyone telling me how great cruises are, etc. It set a level of expectation that I didn't feel was met. The soups were too salty, the Omelette station was too slow, worse since there were two people preparing them and then oiling the pan AND spraying it. The Cafe Promenade which catered to the out of hours dining rooms featured pizza, tea sandwiches and salads. But Ni's winning smile was worth the trip. The schedule should have been given for the entire length of the cruise instead of daily. It would help you plan your itinerary better when there was an overlap, which forced you to sometimes make the wrong decision if you didn't think you'd get a second opportunity, It seemed kind of silly that the photography gallery was inaccessible when the cash registers weren't open. It's obviously for upselling purposes but if I could have the opportunity to review my images on MY time I might have purchased more, I hate being rushed. The drink and wi-fi sales the last two days were last minute marketing gimmicks which was a waste of time. It might help those of us who don't drink enough to justify a drink package, especially if your partner doesn't drink. Read Less

we chose the cruise because we wanted to try a different ship and also wanted a seven day cruise and not a 5 day cruise as that was the only one available on Anthem of the Seas. We loved the ship the food was great. We were especially impressed with the buffet. It had a great deal of variety and an abundance of food. The main restaurant was also great the food and service was excellent. There was also a great deal of shade available around the pool which is important for us. The entertainment was very good the comedians were great. We liked the promenade on this ship more than on the Anthem of the seas . There was more variety of food available after hours. Our cabin was very spacious for an inside room plenty of storage space, I guess because it was an older ship.The only thing we were not impressed with was the solarium which has a sky opening so when it is cold and the weather is bad you cannot seek refuge there. We love the Solarium on Anthem of the Seas much better. Overall we loved the Adventure of the seas and are taking it again soon heading to Canada and New England. We traveled alone but if you come with children there are many activities available and the pool area has sections specially for children of all ages. Read Less

Initially recommended by to me by a friend, they made us aware of Royal Caribbean and the great selection of cruises available. The overall cruise experience superseded my expectations. The destinations were a great selection of Caribbean islands to visit. The onboard entertainment and organised events like the ice skating shows and musicals were fantastically organised and choreographed, the food (both buffet and a la carte) were excellent standard and the service was truly second to none. We found the ship to be incredibly clean. Our cabin was tidied and cleaned twice daily. The facilities were clean. The staff across the ship went over and above expected levels to make our cruise experience a special experience. The staff also made a big effort with our children and made their experience a special one also. It was a truly wonderful week made better by the service levels given to all guests on board. Thank you so much Royal Caribbean, Read Less

And definitely would be back on some of the islands again! Read Less

Chose this cruise over a year ago because of the itinerary - which was slightly changed due to the hurricanes. This was fine - and not a factor in my review. We were early to embark, had the 12:30 slot. It was raining and the process was not organized. Wet luggage delivered at 9pm - including the contents. I assumed that the luggage was kept under cover, but apparently not. This was frustrating and disappointing as a start, but our room attendant brought tons of hangars and I had clothes hanging everywhere trying to dry. Our room was fine. We've been on the bigger, newer ships, and the age of this one did show a little. The balcony was teeny, barely fit the table/chair, so we hardly used it. Would not recommend spending the money for balcony on this ship if you are unsure. It ended up being just a window for us. But the room space was perfect and there were lots of areas for storage. Water pressure at the sink was nill. But shower was great. Ship has been kept in great condition. It was clean and neat, and every staff person very friendly and accommodating. But overall, it was uninspiring. Biggest pluses: Weather was good (hot, but sunny) and seas calm. Spa was great - services exceptional - and appointments easy to get even last minute. Fitness and wellness staff knowledgeable and dedicated to their jobs and the people they worked with. (shout out to Marko who was always a pleasure to see everyday) Coffee at the (pizza place? I think) was best I've had on a cruise. Consistently good. Dining room staff was great and the food was better than any other (free) options on the ship. (though we paid to eat in the restaurants or on the islands as much as possible) Getting on/off ship at ports - well organized and never backlogged. Biggest disappointments: Windjammer. Probably worst food ever on a cruise. Healthy food / salad bar pretty much non-existent. (salad bar was like 6 things and 3 lettuces - never changed) For everyone else in my party, soup was same most days and just repeat stews etc. And of course, crowded - All. The. Time. Nothing makes me feel more like I'm NOT on vacation than fighting crowds for a table or a plate. We stopped even thinking of eating there any day we were at sea or any time that was "normal" eating time. Late night (after 9:30) eating: There is only 1 option. And that's to stand in line for 30 minutes for a slice of rubber pizza or a stale left over tomato/mozzarella sandwich. We were shocked by this. They keep serving drinks of course, till wee hours - so make sure you stow food in your room if you need to eat when you're drinking a lot! Entertainment: not abundant. I was happy to be on a ship that didn't require you to reserve your seats for everything in advance. I guess the downside to that is limited activity. The theater is extremely comfortable though and we could always get a seat. Excursions - ours got cancelled on this sailing. Was a theme with many people we met. That's never happened before- especially so many of them. We ended up winging it at each port and that was OK. Every stop had a decent local tour available. While the ship did offer activities during the day - the fun stuff was poolside - and impossible to get near unless you camped out 2+ hours ahead of time. It was a crowded ship. And I hear they are refurbishing in January and adding MORE cabins. Can't imagine. Ports: Curacao: We did Resort for a Day at Santa Barbara. Had a great time - highly recommended. Beach was wonderful. Beautiful resort. Our sunset cruise (booked on ship) was canceled. Bonnaire: If you didn't book a water activity, there's not much to see here at the port. Little shopping, no restaurants. So,we ended up taking advantage of the thinner crowd and stayed mostly on ship. Aruba: beautiful island and were were docked there all day (7am to 11pm). Did a walking tour with an outside company which was interesting and fun and provided a chance to eat local food. Then grabbed a taxi to Eagle Beach for the afternoon ($20 for a chair!) but really enjoyed the beach and the drinks. Wanted to shop, but most things closed at 6pm, so we just did some bar/food hopping and hit the casino. St. Kitts: Made this our shopping port since excursion was canceled and we have been here before. Locals super friendly and lots of shops/straw market. Friends grabbed an island tour by local taxi and said it was incredible. So the itinerary was great. The ship was just good. This is our 5th RCI cruise and we just booked a newer ship (Harmony) for next year. We've done Oasis and Anthem (in the years they were new) so maybe this smaller ship just wasn't for us. Our party is on the fence as to whether we need to consider another line. So we'll give it one more shot !! Read Less

We did not choose this ship it chose us! We have talked of taking a cruise but I was afraid of being sick and feeling closed in. Royal Caribbean took us in free of charge after going thru the most traumatic experience of surviving Irma. We were stuck without any hope of getting off the island anytime soon. We just came out of the small shelter Divi Little Bay had for us after Jose decided to turn. We had to leave everything we had except a small bag for passport, meds and valuables to get on the ship. The staff were absolutely incredible. We were all in shock as we entered the ship and they met us "THANKING US FOR COMING!" can you imagine? We were beyond thankful for their accepting us in. They did not just take us in, they treated us all with respect as if we had paid full price for the trip like any other passenger. It was hard to wrap my head around coming from Irma, then Jose to walking into the beauty of the ship and staff. This was the first vacation we took in 4 years after i broke my back and went thru surgery. Thank you!!! Thank you!! for going out of your way to help those of stranded and in shock. There are no words for what you have done for all you have helped during this time. You were a God sent in the biggest time of need. We will now be taking our trips to the Caribbean, Europe or anywhere the ship will go via Royal Caribbean. You are truly an amazing way to see the world and to be treated like royalty. Read Less

This was an outstanding cruise with port calls at five interesting Caribbean islands: St. Maarten, St. Kitts, Antigua, St. Lucia and Barbados. It sailed out of San Juan; we stayed there for two days upon our return. The boarding was well-organized and not particularly time consuming. The same was true for departure, which was very well done. Our Junior Suite stateroom was spacious and comfortable. It was kept in top shape by our friendly and very capable Stateroom Attendant Lizbeth Brooks. Dining was excellent with very good food and service. The breakfast and lunch buffets offered just about anything one could desire or imagine. The service was excellent, with waiters hovering nearby by bring beverages or clean up tables. Head Waiter Anabela De Gois was particularly helpful in correcting one small dinner complaint we had; she was thorough and gracious in responding. It was nice to have the flexibility of "My Time" dining. However, we found that if we changed the time from a pre-selected seating, the table was not particularly desirable. The cruise was great for those who like to exercise. There was a running track on the 12th deck, with five laps to a mile. It was particularly delightful to run early in the morning while arriving at a new port. The ship's fitness center was large and well-equipped, with a separate room for stretching and class exercises. The port excursions were interesting and varied. The St. Kitts tour of a "Caribbean Plantation and Beach" was somewhat underwhelming. The 'plantation' was an interesting old house with wonderful views and gardens, but not much more. The beach was nothing to write home about. By contrast the "Best Views of St. Lucia" tour was well worth taking. It did indeed offer wonderful views of this lush, green island. It also featured a stop at the Rain Forest Adventure Park, where one could take a walk into a fascinating rain forest with giant trees and tropical plants -- a world of its own. My wife and I particularly valued the "Best of Barbados" tour, where we were privileged to have Susan Abbott as the guide. Speaking with a slight Irish brogue (her grandfather was Irish!), she proved to be an expert on local plants, flowers, trees and fruit as well as a highly knowledgeable Barbados historian. At the tour's end we expressed interest in seeing the house where a young George Washington stayed in 1751 on his only trip outside the U.S. Although somewhat off the beaten track, Susan kindly took us there in her own vehicle, waited for us, and drove us back to the ship. She deserves special recognition not only as an outstanding tour guide but also as a gracious and caring person. We highly recommend the cruise and this tour -- maybe you'll be lucky enough to have Susan as your guide! Upon departure we took the ship's early morning "Old and New San Juan" city tour, with a dropoff at the airport. It's a great way of learning about the history and architecture of San Juan, while effectively using time before a flight or, in our case, before checking into a hotel. Upon return to the airport it was very easy to claim our luggage (which was conveniently and safely stored for those on the tour). Those with flights proceeded into the airport; we took a cab to our hotel. This was a great cruise, with plenty to do on the ship, outstanding dining, a most attentive staff, and interesting and varied islands to visit. We highly recommend it. Read Less

I live in Puerto Rico and like to cruise with my family within the Caribbean. There are a lot of activities for everyone in the Adventure of the Seas: surfing, (Flowrider), slides, rock climbing, dancing, first class shows for the grownups, water park, painting and shows for the little ones, excellent food at all times. Beautiful promenade deck with like-a-Paris street with cafes and lounges on both sides. The waiters, assistant waiters, cabin attendants and the rest of the crew, make you feel like you are the main reason for their service. We had 3 cabins and all of them were very roomy and clean. Ours were at Deck 8 looking the Promenade. You can see all shows and parades from there when the Promenade is too crowd. Excellent choice. The variety of food during dinner time was great, including lobster. If you don't want to miss the shows, pick first seating or my time dining at 6:00 pm. You won't regret. Only negative thing, smoking in the Casino. I like to play sometimes, but with all that smoke around, spend few bucks and go. Read Less

I chose this cruise to do some diving at the different islands. The only on offered through the ship was St. Maartin, so I booked the rest by myself. Made suggestion about having more diving activities on this cruise. Hopefully, they will ad more dives in the future. Overall, the ship is beautiful. The staff was excellent and my room attandant, Matthew, was outstanding. The activites were varied to suit all ages. I even tried the FlowRider - loads of fun - both the body board and stand up surfing. There was enough time each day to take in some of the local culture each day. 8 am - 4:30 pm. Would definitely recommend this cruise for its variety. The only reason I gave it a 4, was because of the lack of diving activities and the downside - you had to pay for most classes in the gym. Otherwise, it would have been a 5. Read Less

My daughter choose this cruise because she want's to celebrate her "Quinceañero" (15 birthday celebration). The special ship crew and the activities she enjoyed made a memory of a lifetime for her. She enjoyed everything but specially the friends she made. We also enjoy all the activities and specially the waiters amiability at dinner and at the Windjammer. The place at the fourth floor have extraordinary music. I really enjoy it! The embarkation and disembarkation was an easy process. All the ports we visited are beautiful. The visit to the four island we went were very interesting and we found almost everything. Just I feel that the time in Saint Maarten was short.

This cruise offers something for all members of the family. No one in our party of seven was ever without something fun to do or see. The food was excellent in every location provided for us to eat. The buffet seemed to never. The formal dinning is delightful. Quick snacks are always available. A game room is perfect for the calm rainy days or nights. Entertainment is top notch. Our cabin suited our needs. The refrigerator and ample electrical outlets were a delightful surprise. The TV is a large flat screen of good quality. Absolutely NO complaints. I can still feel the slow smooth rocking of the boat sending me into a deep restful sleep. Thank you Adventures of the Seas for making our vacation one to remember for a lifetime.

My husband and I were excited to visit Aruba, Bonaire, & Curacao. While we have been scuba diving on numerous occasions in the Caribbean, we had never visited the Netherland Antilles. We are both certified PADI divers and both have over 1000 logged dives each. While my husband has more expertise in equipment repair & calibration, my experience is as both an IDC Staff Instructor & in Open Water Certifications in Monterey, California. As a side note, my husband was certified to use Enriched Air with PADI in 2012 & I have been certified to teach Enriched Air classes with PADI since 1999. We booked 2 tank boat dives, with Nitrox, on 4 different shore excursions. It was not to be. #1 Your C-cards don't matter. We showed our cards to both the PADI shop onboard & each & every shore operator - as required prior to diving. Each shore operator had a different set of rules. 1st stop: "We don't allow cruise ship divers from to use Nitrox. They get confused. That's the agreement we have with Royal Caribbean." Yet all the other shore operators had no problem with renting us Nitrox tanks. #2 Royal Caribbean makes other arbitrary restrictions. "Max. Depth is 18 meters." Yet different shore operators had different rules. For example: "45 feet for 45 minutes, both dives." #3 Undisclosed limits & conditions of advertisements. Wind was significant in 2 locations. 30 to 35 knots. One operator takes us out (as we had booked) on a 2 tank boat dive. It was a bit choppy, but we're from California. Think: Monastery Beach. So, wind to us was not a factor. Another operator doesn't TELL us that we GOT 2 shore dives, until it was too late to do anything about the change of plans. It was a 20-25 minute bus ride from the ship to the staging area, then a short walk to the dive shop & beach entry. After we arrive, we are then told "too bad it's so windy." We had booked boat dives. #4 No notice, choice, or refund. We were not notified of the changes, given an opportunity to do something else, or even offered a refund for the arbitrary changes. #5 Rental equipment. Our gear did not arrive to our room until late the following morning from our initial embarkation. Too late for us to make the 8am meeting time for our 1st dive. We were at the front desk & the shore excursion desk numerous times the night before, as well as the following morning. Looking for our luggage, as well as telling them we cannot dive without our gear. RC refused to refund our money. Their answer: "You can use rental gear." Excuse me?? We did not bring thousands of dollars of our personal gear (Zeagle BCD's, Regulators, Gauges, Computers, Masks, Fins, Booties, Snorkels, Shortie Wetsuits, Flashlights, Save a Dive Kit, Nitrox Analyzer, etc....) to use RENTAL equipment. The food was OK, not spectacular, but OK. We even tried the Chef's Table & Chop's. Better, but again, not spectacular. The evening shows were great. Especially love the dancers. The staff in the serving areas were wonderful. Our room steward was fabulous. However, the general policies of Royal Caribbean made it impossible for us to enjoy our primary goal: scuba diving. To summarize: We will NEVER cruise with Royal Caribbean again. Read Less

We chose this cruise for several reasons. Firstly, we needed a vacation, due to a colder and longer than normal Vancouver (Canada) winter. Second, we wanted to try a cruise line we had never booked before and had heard good things about RCI from a seasoned cruising friend of ours. Third, this was a longer than normal cruise, due to the ship having been privately chartered by a large insurance company for a staff cruise, but only for a few days so RCI filled in the remaining days with our 10 day cruise - great ! We also did a lot of online research into the Adventure of the Seas and found that she had recently undergone a multi million dollar re-fit, so we felt that this cruise and this ship would suit our needs well. As former Travel agents ourselves, from many years ago, we are always expecting good things, and this trip was fantastic. The ship was magnificent, the crew and staff onboard were well informed, courteous, and always able to make us feel right at home. The buffets onboard were able to keep food hot at all times and the quality and range of foods at all meals was exceptional. The Adventure is a majestic vessel with a stunning atrium, and you can watch the glass capsule type elevators going all the way up 14 floors high, from the bottom floors - you won't believe you are on a ship ! The board walk inside the ship is amazing - lined with shops, pubs, and a great "street" inside the ship where entertainers perform nightly to delight you. During the first 3 days we were onboard we found that the leaders of the shore excursions were difficult to find after you had walked onto the pier, and this was a little disconcerting but there seemed to be a general change onboard after the third day and there seemed to be a lot more attention being paid to detail after this. We were frequently approached at the main dining room during our meals, by the head waiter to make sure all was good with our meals. Perhaps there had been some complaining, who knows, but I would say overall that this cruise was an excellent choice overall and we would have no hesitation in doing it again or recommending it to others. We also write on Trip Adviser and enjoy travelling a lot and reviewing for others. Researching, before going on a vacation is the key to smoothing out the bumps as much as possible before going. With most vacations you get what you pay for and we were very well satisfied with our cruise. Don't hesitate - Book It ! Gordon and Barbara Foster, Vancouver, Canada. Read Less

We chose this ship because we wanted a January cruise that went to the Southern Caribbean. Initially we were just iffy about the ship as we had previously sailed on the NCL Getaway. After 3 days we had NO crowded pools, no crowded hot tubs, no wait in for the main dining room, ALWAYS readily found deck chairs, loved the promenade deck and the goodies available there 24-7. We loved the ports (St. Thomas, St. Kitts, Curacao, Aruba) and by weeks end my 8yo son cried because he came to enjoy everything about the ship. For the kids: we found it very handy we could "load" a cruise card with game room credit and then became useless afterwards.........with 2 children this is an outstanding way to manage the kids. On previous cruises our game room bill eclipsed 150.00 but RCCL does it right in this area as this is easily managed. The food: never had a bad meal. Now there was Italian night and that is just not my favorite so we grazed in the buffet and the promenade. Now this is what spoke volumes to me, the next night our hostess/head waiter asked where we were last night and if we had a bad experience. WOW, never happened to us before. We came to adore this sweet lady and the surrounding staff. The promenade has a 24-7 goodie area where you can get cookies, sandwiches, pizza, coffee, etc. My children would go there after EVERY port because the food was really good..........nothing fancy but hearty and satisfying. The decks: you could always get into a hot tub or pool......it was never so crowded and my son began to grow fins because he lived there almost every day. The water slides and flow rider were fun too. As a middle aged guy, I had to try the flow rider........yeah, I was not a keen surfer but the staff was so kind helping get the hang of it. The ports: all I can say is DO IT, DO IT, DO IT, DO IT. Not a bad port on this cruise. St. Kitts was gorgeous as we did a local island tour that lasted 5-6 hours. We were at Buckaroo beach for 3 hours where the biggest wave was like 4 inches and the water was so clear we could see all the fish. Loved it. Aruba is simply gorgeous as was Curacao and touring both islands was a treat. We cannot say enough about these islands as we did tours on both of them and again.........loved both. St. Thomas, we did the island tram and simply meandered the island the entire day.........it is so nice to eat conch fritters and coconut shrimp spiced island style. Loved all the stops. By weeks end, we were all fans of this ship, its stops, and most of all ease of accessibility and gracious staff. I have never done a B2B but would seriously entertain the idea on this ship!!!

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 our cruise over the Thanksgiving holiday. There were so many activities, entertainment for all ages to enjoy. The crew members were all so professional, consistently greeting us with a smile, and going out of their way to make sure we were all enjoying our vacation. Although the Adventures of the Seas is an older ship, Royal Caribbean did a wonderful job updating the ship while in dry dock prior to our cruise. My DH and I booked our next Royal Caribbean cruise for next year 2017! It will just be the 2 of us. This will be our first cruise together without our children! it took a lot of convincing me, as I am an extreme family oriented person. We booked the Anthem of the seas, we are staying in the Grand Loft Suite 10724. Anyone with experience, tips for us for our future cruise will be appreciated. My DH and I are also thinking about renewing our wedding vowels for our 25th wedding anniversary 2018 on Royal Caribbean with family. Anyone with experience and helpful tips/recommendations is greatly appreciated. Thank you, Startreckmom Read Less

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. Normally we would travel down the day before to catch a boat out of Puerto Rico but since the ship didn't leave until 8PM we figured why waste the hotel money. We took JetBlue from JFK non stop to SJU and got a taxi right at the baggage pickup. A quick 20 minute drive and we were dock side waiting to get on. Embarkation was fast and we were on the ship in no time. This ship had 5 stops Aruba, Curacao, Bonaire, Antigua, and St. Maarten. Getting on and off the boat in port was a breeze. No big lines if you gave the first off people about 15 minutes. We booked our own excursions since w elike smaller groups and doing different things. Ports of call (excursions) In Aruba we took a trike tour. www.trikes-aruba.com I would recommend those that are adventurous to take this. It's quite the experience. You drive the trike with a passenger or 2 and you make 5 different stops along the 3 hour journey. Bring your GoPro, hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen and feel the wind in your face. Very cool excursion.After the trike tour we got a taxi to Eagle beach were we hung out for a couple of hours for some sun, sand and water. Curacao we didn't have an excursion so we got off the boat after all the other shore excursion people left and got an island tour. For $20 a person we went around the island stopping at a bunch of places including the Curacao liquor plant. We got dropped off on the other side of the floating bridge. We did a lot of walking here since there was some great shots and we could watch the boat move past in the channel. Free WiFi in the Starbucks by the port if you are interested. Bonaire we did some snorkeling since everybody raves about the coral life and the clarity of the water. We booked an excursion thru Renee's Snorkel Trips www.reneesnorkeltrips.com/ Renee herself took my wife and I on a solo tour since the couple that was to go with us decided to change their time. So we got some one on one time to see the reef, fish, and coral. We made 2 stops spending about 30 minutes in the water each stop. Never leaving sight of the ship at all. If you have never snorkeled before this is the place to do it. Once we had finished out snorkel adventure we hit the open air market for some souvenirs, then on to the Bonaire Brew Pub for some free WiFi and some food and drinks. Great time in Bonaire. Very small island with a very small population. Next stop was Antigua. We again booked outside of the ship and it was a very long and interesting excursion. This one was 6 hours and hit a bunch of stops. Scenic Tours Antigua scenictoursantigua.com/v2/ There was only 4 of us on the excursion and we went from stop to stop learning about the history of the island, taking in the sites,and meeting some of the locals. The views from some of the old forts is amazing. Last stop was St. Maarten. I red some reviews on Reddit about Bernards Tours so we booked yet again off the ship and made plans for a 5 hour tour, with a beach stop. www.bernardstours.com/ we highly recommend this tour. You see both sides to the island (French, Dutch) with lots of stops in each. Sarafina's on the French side is to die for. Sunset Beach/Maho Beach on the Dutch side is a must also. DJ our drive was very knowledgeable and made all 12 of us feel at home. The stops in Orient Beach and Maho Beach give you some time to get in the water if you like. We only saw 1 cruise ship in 8 days and it was on our last stop. With 2 at sea days you still had some time to check out the boat and the entertainment on it. The Champagne Bar is the place to be on this ship if you like mixed cocktails. Our mixologists were top notch and made some extremely good drinks. We also did a pop up whiskey class in that bar which was totally by surprise. We never had a bad meal in the main dining rooms and only ate at the buffet for breakfast and lunch unless we where off the boat. During the sea days the cruise director and his staff kept us very busy with daily activities. If I had to pick one negative it would be the lack of quality nightly entertainment. Celebrity did a very good job of that and Carnival had the comedy lounge. We stayed in Puerto Rico for a couple of days to unwind from vacation. We usually book thru AirBnB or VRBO and find places in Old San Juan or Condado. This time we had a place in Condado which was perfect for us. Very close to all sorts of good food, shopping, and of course the beach. Counting the days until the next one. Read Less

We wanted to duplicate our honeymoon cruise some 21 years ago. We flew down to san Juan 2 days in advance to take in the sites in Old San Juan and to sample the local restaurants. (Pannes restaurant in the Coronado District was so good we ate there twice) The Adventure of the Seas (Voyager Class) has been recently refurbished and has many of the amenities you'll find on newer RCCL ships. It is due for another upgrade in Nov. 2016 which will add even more restaurants, entertainment and outdoor activity venues. The ship is clean, well maintained and the crew was very pleasant and helpful. There is more than plenty to do aboard ship to keep you busy. There is also many places to go to for quiet time. Entertainment was very good and a nice variety. The food was good but nothing special. Our cruise visited 5 ports along the Lesser Antilles. One of the things that makes this cruise unique is that at every stop we were the only ship in port. Something you would rarely see in places like Nassau or Cozumel. The ports, with the exception of Antigua, were clean and friendly. The shop keepers, tour guides and taxi drivers on Antigua are aggressive and don't take no easily. Just be prepared! I would definitely recommend this cruise. Read Less

Adventure of the seas Review - France and Spain 27oct - 04nov 2013 Ports of call: Southampton - Cherbourg - Vigo - Gijon - Bilbao -Southampton Embarkation: Smooth and very easy at the So’ton City terminal. Loyalty lanes were clearly labelled and took advantage of that as a crown and anchor member, saving up to 20 minutes of queuing. Once onboard by 1pm we headed to the windjammer for our first meal. Very busy as expected. By 2pm the cabins were ready. Our interior stateroom 6377 was roomier than expected and the stateroom attendant looked after our room extremely well throughout the cruise. It was a windy departure and captain Sorensen had adjusted the itinerary to ensure a smooth sailing as much as he could amid storms and low pressure systems developing in the atlantic ocean that were moving east, creating rough conditions in the sea. I liked the insightful updates in TV channel 27 between the captain and the cruise director informing everyone about the weather and showing their thinking on a daily basis. Portofino was excellent and we went twice. The second time we went with a lovely couple we met in dining room table #464. The risotto was great and the T-bone steak in particular was succulent, not to mention the tiramisu. Service was exceptional. Some of the servers were one of the most experienced with RCI. The Ice show and quest show were great. My girlfriend and I participated in a flashmob dance which was fun and took place at Studio B just before the Quest show; it was a nice touch to receive a certificate from the entertainment staff for our dedication to have fun during our rehearsals on sea days. Also attended the ballroom dance classes with the experienced couple “Val and Vira” and zumba fitness lesson in Jesters Disco during the sea days. It was great to get involved. Had nearly forgotten it was Halloween during our cruise but the Monster bash in the Royal Promenade was a lot of fun and we were surprised how many people dressed up. There was definitely a great atmosphere that evening. Took advantage of the martini happy hour for 6.00 USD each, Brilliantly served and by far excellent value for money when compared to the London standard; Similar story with the cocktails. For 8 dollars you could get a decent cocktail and for spirits and mixers served on double measure would equate to half price compared to London. My girlfriend was really happy she could keep the glasses as well. We hope RCI will continue doing it! We attended the two crown and anchor events. The captain was very cheerful speaking to us about his experience, working as a captain and shared his excitement about working for the company. Julio Gomez, our cruise sales manager made us feel very welcome and treated us as truly loyal passengers. It certainly made me feel at home. Two thirds of the cruise passengers were first time cruisers with Royal, of which many have not cruised ever before. Enough said, RCI is doing well in attracting not only the loyal, but new people onboard. One of the reasons I booked the cruise besides the ship, of which I will write about in the next paragraph, was the itinerary. At Vigo, we booked the excursion to Santiago de Compostela; a very notorious city for its cathedral and renowned for its Pilgrimage trail. At Gijon, we booked for Oviedo, the capital of the principality of Asturias, very beautiful and with plenty of local traditions such as the chorizo and its cider. At Bilbao, we only docked until 1:30pm, which was our new early departure time back to Southampton. Despite the short time we booked an excursion the previous night but we managed to oversleep the following morning! We were concerned about the money we had paid (67USD each) but after visiting the shore excursions desk in Deck 5 at 6pm, they were understanding and we were delighted to get a full refund.... which bought me a sale price Citizen watch later that evening ;) The departure time change was due to the weather coming into Bay of Biscay the next day so we wanted to make sure not to get caught in it although that evening it got very rough with up to 8m waves! But it was safe and an interesting experience. I must admit I could not sleep very well that night but on the flipside my tolearance to rougher weather is greater. The Ship: This is for me between 60 and 75% of my cruise holiday and with Royal Caribbean I am certainly not too choosy about which ship to go for because I trust all ships are kept to a high standard (It only takes 5 minutes or so to pay attention to the video of Royal in the interactive channel in your stateroom to appreciate that). The only variable would be the size and the number of amenities. Service is what counts followed by food quality and entertainment, in that order. I am pleased to share that the crew did a fantastic job. However, I feel shows in the theatre have degraded a bit and it’s lacking preparation, colourful stages and costumes (Serenade on December 2012 and Brilliance December 2010 was much better). Guests were ok. Bingo we only played on the jackpot which was a whopping 3900USD, the Lyric theatre was full of people, but I do feel the cartons are overpriced!! Jenny and Bjorn made the Bingo experience more fun. Also it was nice to have giveaways in between games. This is definitely a good idea! The Casino staff was wonderful, the tournaments on sea days are a good choice if you don’t want to spend too much but still have a laugh and who knows, you could win something, like I did with a 2nd place in Blackjack, taking 100USD. I also used the gym which was big enough with a Jacuzzi in the centre. Great layout, maybe the machines are a bit outdated but seeing as this vessel will undergo a revitalisation it might just get the treat, as well as many other additions and upgrades just before her second round at Southampton next year. Another spectacular cruise packed with unforgettable memories. Overall I am very satisfied and looking forward to my next cruise holiday with Royal Caribbean International. In fact, knowing that Adventure is coming next spring to Southampton I would sail on her again. But I might consider Independence of the seas this time if not both. Read Less

Overall, a good cruise. Embarkation was very easy, despite all the bad things I'd read about boarding in San Juan. To be fair, we do have priority check-in from the loyalty program. However, check in took only about 5 minutes and we only had to wait (in seats, with refreshments) for about 20 minutes to get clearance to board. We arrived at the pier around 11:45am and were on the boat enjoying a cocktail before 1pm. So get there early and start your vacation is my advice. THE GOOD The staff on the boat was excellent, truly great service. The ports of call on this itinerary are great, especially Curacao & Aruba. Having never been to the southern Caribbean before, it's now my favorite part. Besides being very beautiful with great weather, the people were all extremely friendly. THE MEDIOCRE The ship is a little old with some outdated decor. But, she's headed for dry-dock this year I think so that's not really an issue. It wouldn't be for me anyway. The food in the main dining room was OK. Nothing was bad, but some nights were definitely better than others. At worst, it was on par with food at an average wedding. We ate in the specialty restaurant on the last night, and that food was excellent. We booked another cruise while on board and were considering sailing on the Adventure again (it flip-flops between 2 different S. Caribbean itineraries). In the end, we chose to book the Jewel because of the specific itinerary and because we like the smaller ship. I would definitely consider the Adventure again in the future. Read Less

Just returned from 7 nights on Adventure of the Seas. We left from San Juan on Sunday 2/24. We arrived at the Port around 11:00 and with absolutely no problem at all were on the ship in about 30 minutes. Royal has streamlined everything and it couldn't be easier. Everyone was happy and helpful and welcoming. We have been on Adventure before and we were a little concerned because some of the reviews have been negative. Let me just say, this ship is still absolutely beautiful, clean and awesome. We could not check in until 2 so we went and had lunch at the Windjammer. Plenty of room there, plenty of selection, all fresh and nicely presented. Wonderful servers and excellent service. After lunch we walked around and checked out the ship which looks beautiful. We played a little mini golf and the golf course looks brand new. Finally time to check in to or state room. First time with a Jr. Suite. From now on, that is the room we will get! Loved the room, nice large deck, spacious room and so much storage! Walk in closet, and a bath tub! Such an awesome room! Met Karen our room steward almost immediately. She was lovely, and just did an excellent job. Luggage arrived shortly after we checked in and vacation began. The entertainment on this ship was excellent. They had comedy, variety, skating, everything was great. We chose to dine in the 2nd seating. I think we may change that next time, it just seemed to really run late and we actually only went to the dining room 3x. We ate at Portofino twice...OMG still dreaming about the Risotto! and we ate at Windjammer 2x when we just wanted to eat and have time to do everything planned for the evening. I don't think we even did 75% of the activities we could have done. Such an amazing selection of things to do. We were never bored in the evenings and some nights we found ourselves running from end to end of the ship to try to do everything! We absolutely loved each and every port of call. It didn't hurt that the weather was amazing the entire week! Our favorites were St Lucia, Antigua and Barbados. I highly recommend the Catamaran tour in Antigua. I have never seen water that color! We also really enjoyed the Jeep and Cave tour in Barbados and the Segway tour in St Lucia. I was particularly impressed with how friendly everyone was. The tours were professional and the tour guides were fun and friendly. We spent the last two vacations in Jamaica and they are not nearly as friendly or welcoming as the people in these islands were. We were also completely impressed with service all over the ship. Everyone was so nice and just really bent over backward to make sure we were happy. The service was OUTSTANDING! I am amazed that anyone could give this trip anything less then 5 stars! The ship is beautiful, the food is plentiful and there is enough variety for any taste, the service is amazing, the entertainment is great and again something for everyone. We are already planning our next cruise on Royal...we want to do this one again and may just book the same trip next year before Adventure goes in for updates! Read Less

Embarkation and debarkation as suite guests went smoothly as did transfers to and from airport. San Juan airport is in need of rehab and updating. It's dirty, unkempt, and expensive except for duty free booze. Ship is also older and need of updating. Repair work was constant near our stateroom and there was the persistent smell of methane in one area. One couple we met had it the odor so bad in there room, they had to keep the balcony door open at night to sleep which kept the AC from being effective. They could not be moved to another cabin as the ship was full. One specialty restaurant (Portofino) which was so-so. My T-bone was well cooked and flavorful, but my wife's veal saltimbocca was tough with an odd taste. Room service terrible with consistently cold food. Even in the main dining room, food often served at the wrong temp like cold to lukewarm escargot,and bland (blandest lobster tail ever). Best time on ship was in the Concierge Lounge available to all suite guests except mini suite guests. No extra charge drinks, food with a chance to mingle with a lot of fun people. Grand Suite was roomy with nice balcony, but we did not get the perks advertised (turn down treats, butler service, fresh fruit, et al). Ports were great as were the excursions: snorkeling at Buck Island St. Croix, Pitons St. Lucia, Barbados, with sting rays Antigua, and beach time at Orient Beach St. Martin. The aggravation, however, was our ship was always last in and first out of the ports. Ships coming behind ours especially at Antigua were docked before ours delaying our scheduled arrival by 1.5 hours. Despite the poor food, we would consider going again, but may just go on Celebrity with the same itinerary. Read Less

My cousin and I had looked forward all year to going to San Juan, St. Kitts, Aruba, St. Thomas and Curacao. We arrived a day earlier and stayed at the Sheraton (Convention Center). This should have been a clue as to how it was going to go. The adults as well as children knock you out of the way if they want to get in front of you with not even an excuse me. On the cruise I was knocked out of the way by a child of approximately 10 years old while trying to take a picture of an ice sculpture on deck. His parents did nothing . His parents had a clear shot of what he did. For the first two days of the cruise the children dominated the ADULTS area: the pool and the hot tub. Finally, on the second day, a staff member did say something to the parents who had a BABY (of about 5-6 months) in the ADULT hot tub. This is both dangerous for the child and VERY RUDE and INCONSIDERATE to other people. My cousin and I went to the theater twice to watch a movie and were tormented by LOUD and OBNOXIOUS teenagers both times. ROOM: The junior suite was wonderful. This is the best cabin on a ship I have ever had. I usually have a balcony. There was even a tub! The room was spacious and the balcony wonderful Our room steward, Aloma, was excellent. Dining: I was very disappointed in the dining room. The first night we sat at a table by the window and loved it. The second night our table number had been moved to another table. I asked about it and was told that the first night was a mix up. I still find it strange that 2 people got a table by themselves by the window while my cousin and I and another couple are switched to the next table. The staff did not even try to see what they could do to try to make up for the switch. The food was okay, so we did not go back until lobster night. We found that we loved the Windjammer. The food was better, more selection, and nicer staff. The staff in the Windjammer could not do enough for us. I was carrying soup for myself and my cousin , when a waiter stopped me and took them. He carried them to the table for me. However, while getting sanitizer a child put her hand on top of my cousins. This is so unbelievably rude. The food at Johnny Rockets was excellent. However, the waitress was very rude. My cousin and I arrived early before noon and were told we could wait if we wanted. So, we waited on an outside table by the window. At noon, the waitress on our end waited on the family behind us that showed up approximately 25 minutes after us! We waited 30 minutes for them to open and everyone got waited on but us! I stopped one of the waiters and told him we still had not been waited on while everyone else had. He was asking the waitress why she had not waited on us and she she told him the other people were here first. I lost it. Normally I am meek, mild and non-confrontational. But after being pushed, shoved (have a large bruise on my arm from a child knocking me into a wall), no peace on the ship without some adult or ill mannered child aggravating me, I marched in there and said "oh, no mam I have been here since 30 minutes prior to opening. Do you think I got a "I am so sorry mam, I am so sorry I did not see you, I apologize let me get your order?" Oh no, I got "it not my fault" very , very, rude. She was actually indignant to me. Why, because I had the audacity to say something. The food, however, was wonderful. I loved the milkshake and hamburger. Entertainment: I liked it, but there again people were recording and using flash photography. Like I said a sea of rudeness. Spa: The spa treatment was excellent, however, I did not understand my bill. I had to go up to the spa twice. The first time customer service told me to go up there nobody would answer. The second time I thought the manager fixed it. Oh what a nightmare. I had to go to the ninth floor get my suitcase out of the hall and get the product. Then I had to run up to the twelfth floor again. Then I had to put the product back in my suit case and put it back in the hall. The day of return my bill is the same and my cousin's bill is the one that had been messed with and then put back the same. I was told to wait 20 minutes. So, I am so upset I don't even taste breakfast. Then when we go back to the line on the fifth floor; we are told to got up to the spa. Now, my cousin looses it. I am in tears at this point. The manager of the spa then finally explains the bill on the phone. Now, after I hang up I realize that the treatments on my bill are still more than the flyer had said, but I have had enough. I still don't understand the bill. Shopping: The shopping guides are excellent. They are courteous, and extremely helpful. Genuinely nice people. Ross and Christina are the best. Ports: The ports are wonderful, beautiful ports. I love the islands. Excursions: I went on a train in St. Kitts and it is excellent. I took a city tour in Curacao and it was great. I took a taxi to the beach in Aruba, and was absolutely beautiful. Read Less

My best friend and I cruise every January/February to a warm spot where we can have sun and fun. We have mostly said on the Royal Caribbean ships. We chose this particular ship because it visited multiple ports and sailed out of San Juan--a guaranteed warm weather port. Last year we sailed out of Florida and essentially lost 2 days, one going and the other coming because it was too cold to be out on the deck sunning. The embarkation was quick and easy. We took a cab directly to the port from the airport which was about $22 each way plus tip. We always use a taxi as we don't have to wait for the bus to fill up or unload our luggage. Getting off the ship was just as easy but as always, the earliest flight back for us required a four hour wait at airport so we take books and electronics to keep us occupied. Our cabin had adequate closet and drawer space and was conveniently located midship. It does need updating and has the older television in the room but we have limited channels anyway and spend a total of 3 hours for the week watching anything. We get a balcony because we use the fresh air to dry our exercise clothes and bathing suits. We don't spend a great deal of time on the balcony. At least this time versus our previous cruise, the people on either side of us did not smoke. Last year we could not enjoy our balcony at all. We play a lot of sports and try all the adventures on the ship. The miniature golf track is in immediate need of repair as the carpet has multiple tears. The exercise equipment is sufficient and space is large. They offer limited classes for a fee but most of the times were during our land tours. They need to update the types of classes offered and add rumba, jazzercise and aerobics. The food was very good. We had the late seating and managed to stay up for the shows which were okay. The newlywed game is fun for first time criers but it is so apparent that two of the couples selected had either heard of this game and knew the potential questions and had prepared their responses. Takes the fun out of watching. We requested a large table at dinner so we could meet other guests but no one else ever showed up all week. Felt bad for our waiters as they lose out on the tips and we were disappointed not to meet new people. There were quite a number of empty seats all over. Our cabin steward was very nice and attentive. Overall, enjoyed the ship but again, can use updating. Read Less
