We chose this cruise because it was related to work. Pro: The entertainment throughout the ship was outstanding. The dancers, vocalists, ice skaters, and individual performers were highly professional! Cons: We ended up with a cabin overlooking the promenade. Unless you party late I would not recommend this location because of loud music. The food in the dining room was uninspiring but service was good. Music blares during their entertainment My biggest concern was safety. There are two arched bridges at the entrance to the promenade on deck 4 and 5. Warning signs were small and not easily visible. Apparently the ship recognized this as a problem. Unfortunately I tripped at the arch of the deck 5 bridge and landed on my knees. I was not drinking and was watching my step but my foot just caught on the slope .Another cruiser came over and told me she had seen 5 people trip on that bridge. Two days later I saw an older gentleman fall on the same bridge. I asked to speak to supervisor after that but the female employee at customer service said it had been reported and would not let me speak to a supervisor. Personally the area is dangerous and should be cordoned off until the problem is solved. I have found officers of other lines to be more visible around the ship and willing to speak to passengers than Royal Caribbean. Read Less

Elvis Tribute Artist cruise; having sailed on many RCCL ships, I found Adventure to have positives (smaller size easier to get around) and negatives (RCCL has tried to squeeze all of the amenities of Oasis class ships into this smaller one making for some tight spaces). Food was OK but choices very limited. Complimentary was either the main dining room with service that was way over the top ingratiating or the Windjammer buffet. There is also a Cafe in the Promenade that is small and crowded with pick-up items. That main dining room service---our waitstaff hovered over us constantly asking if the food - and "most especially" the service were excellent. About halfway through our meal, we just wanted to tell them to go away but held back knowing the mean well and in their culture they are being gracious. Only ate in there one time. Windjammer food was fine and if not, option to go back for something better. Ate in Giovanni's - one of the fee restaurants and did not think it worth the $35 each price tag: ate in a la carte Izumi and would never do that again - again not worth the money --- extraordinarily limited menu and food just OK. Good daytime place to relax and read is the Blue Moon lounge on Deck 14. Gripe---paying for a junior suite did not give us privileges to the "Suite Lounge" - always has on Oasis class ships but not this one. Cabin: nice and spacious and comfortable. Our cabin attendant was fine although having pre-paid tips and having asked nothing of him over and above his ordinary duties, found the TIP, TIP HOORAY envelope left in our room on the last night annoying. Yes, we caved and gave him an extra tip. That's all one does on these ships - everything wants and "additional" tip which should only be added for extraordinary service. Hard to comment on entertainment as we were enveloped in the shows included in our private group; we did think, though, that there seemed to be limited entertainment and thought we would have been looking for something do at night if not for our group events. Best port of call was Grand Cayman but given that it was a tender situation with a very short day, we elected not to get off the ship. Costa Maya and Cozumel are two places no one really needs to ever go. Read Less

This was a group cruise. I was a bit apprehensive about possibly being seasick, but that was not a problem. The stateroom was very nice and comfortable. The ship was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. I did not like being constantly “sold.” That was annoying and lacked class. Tacky. The food was mediocre to awful. They had cream soups with no cream in them... in fact I don’t think there was any cream on the ship as we couldn’t find any for our coffee either. The coffee was really really awful. On lobster night we were served a single Maine lobster tail. 3-4 bites of lobster for your supper? Really? Ports of call were Grand Caymen, Costa Maya and Cozumel. All looked like they built Disneyland at the end of the pier. Ww dif one Shord excursion that was cut short and we felt ripped off. Would definitely not choose this cruise line again. Read Less
