In south Florida for a relative's wedding and decided to cruise with brother and his family who has sailed on Royal Caribbean for several years. This was cruise number 18 for me but have only cruised on Carnival and Princess until this cruise. Embarkation- was in a junior suite so went to the suite line- very fast and we were on the ship in 30 minutes. The Ship- oh my gosh, it was lovely! The ship decor was classy and not the overt tackiness of some of the other ships I have been on (sometimes I do like tackiness). The ship was a smaller ship but I found it very easy to find my way around. The champagne bar was very small and intimate, we spent a lot of time there. The promenade had many shops, I did get some Gelato which was good. My husband got Starbucks a few times but otherwise it did not utilize the clothing/jewelry shops Beverages- I had the basic soda package and found many places to be able to fill my cup with the freestyle machines. The Price of Alcoholic drinks seemed expensive but I think it is average for the industry. I just do not drink enough alcohol consistently to make the beverage package worth it for me. I will next time get the deluxe soda package with includes Sparkling water, juices and mocktails. LOVE LOVE the solarium, never a problem getting a lounger, the hot tubs were crowded but I really like the fact that they are covered and found the decor gave an atmosphere of relation. It was just a nice area and I happily spent many hours reading in the solarium. Word to the wise-do not go at Spring Break (they had their boombox and were playing music very loudly in the hot tub at various times) Yes my bad for booking at Spring Break, not Royal's fault Food-MDR was some of the best MDR food I have ever had. Our Waiters Marianos and Aris were the best waiters I have ever had! CHEF's TABLE- the food was exquisite, the wine was wonderful. Lovely presentation but the area where the chef's table was located(a landing above the dining room) made it very noisy and difficult to hear what the Chef was saying. I do like the fact that on Carnival the Chef's table is in a private room. Facilities-did not use Gym or Spa Smoking Area-for those that smoke or vape- Large area on the Port side pool deck (plenty of ashtrays) as well as the casino and I think there was an area on a lower deck as well. Entertainment-made a good sized deposit in the casino. The casin it self was not very large but a good assortment of machines. I found the slots to be good for a cruise ship but the points system is a little more rigid than Carnival. I usually accumulate 7000-10000 points on Carnival but on Royal it was only about 3000 points. No free drinks at 1500 points. Activities- we did want to participate in trivia but unless you get your seat early it is usually very crowded as it is a popular activity. Ports- The only port we got off of the ship was Cozumel-went to Palmeras for ceviche. (yummy) Debarkation- Did Self assist, a bit disorganized but was off the ship in about 45 minutes I love this ship and want to go on her again but unfortunetly she will be going to New Jersey and finally Texas. I live in Florida and it is an easy drive to the ports in Florida. Guess I will Just have to fly! Im thoroughly impressed with Royal Caribbean and have already booked another cruise with them. I especially like this ship and would almost go so far as to say Its my most favorite ship I have ever been on! Read Less

This was our first cruise and didn't really know what to expect of it. But the second we got on the ship we knew it would be great. We got on the ship around 12p and went directly to the Windjammer on floor 11 due to the state rooms not being available until 1p the windjammer staff made sure the buffet was safe, clean and a overall good experience, when you walk in they make sure everyone washes their hands and drys them and has sanitizing stations all around. The food was good for being a free meal and the staff constantly walked around and made sure the place was clean. The staterooms were exceptionally good. The room attendant I had was very good. I would recommend he get a pay raise because he was just amazing. So friendly and kind and made a elephant and monkey out of towels for the kids to enjoy. He always made our beds and cleaned the room up. Everytime we left we came back to a orderly room with fresh towels and made beds. The only complaint about this ship was that the elevators were always crowded and the system was sometimes dumb. The elevators would sometimes skip you but all in all they were quick and speedy even though 40% of people found themselves walking down stairs. The kids had multiple activities and a teen's club. They did a little dodgeball tournament, had parties, had mini golf, rock climbing, slides, arcade and a flow rider. Now for parents when they want to get away from kids they have a daycare for the little ones and multiple bars and a casino. The best place to eat to me is Johnny's Rockets. The service was great and speedy and our waitress was so kind and amazing, the food was yummy and was very good. They have fancier places with exceptional service but the food to me wasnt as good. All in all the Adventure Of The Seas was an amazing ship and I would reccomend to any families. Read Less

We chose it because of Port and destinations. The ship is old and it shows all over. The MDR staff was excellent but tablecloths were stained and you could see black marks on the table through them. After the first night our table was exchanged for another one. Casino staff must have been in training. Windjammer staff was terrible! Entertainment was a bright spot! The Islands were awesome and am going to return but on another ship. The dock in Curaçao was a good distance from anywhere so don’t plan on walking. After our tour, the guide dropped us off at the Gouverneur’s House for lunch. Recommend the Taste of Curaçao, delicious! Bonaire was fabulous and so interesting. Go visit the salt flats with a guide who can explain it all. Learned to snorkel right off beach. Make sure to wear water shoes! Eat the Dutch pancakes for a dessert but don’t share. Aruba has the beautiful beaches with white sand. It was amazing how flat and desert like it was. The Natural Bridge has collapsed but there is a baby bridge right beside it. That was the most interesting part of the tour that morning. All 3 islands were extremely windy so plan for that. Read Less

Staff, service food and entertainment were exceptional. Hit some very windy days and one rainy day that limited poolside activities. This was my second time aboard the Adventurer and I forgot how confining the balcony was. The major negative of our trip was the condition of the ship and maintenance. Rugs, chairs and sofas were not the cleanest and resembled the coat on a Dalmatian. Windows were dirty and rust has crept into bathrooms and the balcony area. We enjoyed this cruise despite the maintenance issues. This old lady. Should have been sent for a retro fit. A minimum of a year ago. Best entertainment I have experienced in a number of cruises. It appears the kitchen has kicked up the food in the dinning room and we enjoyed every meal selection. The Windjammer didn’t offer the selection on the buffet that our family has been used to. It was good, but it was a repeat performance many days. As I stated service was outstanding. I have no complaints and rate it 5 stars. Read Less

Inexpensive btb after celebrity silhouette....dining room food on adventure was excellent, Far less crew than is needed; plastic glasses rolled around on windy top deck; public washrooms often needed attention; windjammer was a zoo and hours of operation were not early enough in the morning or long enough for lunch; signing up for pool towels meant we collected return towels rather than have crew do the cleaning up; difficult to find quiet spaces outside. Solarium was very noisy due to being overcrowded and chairs being scraped on stone floors. Very seldom did a bar server tour around to take orders or collect glasses and garbage. Far too many inside cabins created more guests and less public space....pools and pool areas way too small for number of guests. At times lineups to get into main dining room were long, congested, noisy . Buffet breakfast and lunches in main dining room were great but way too many guests for the room to have a pleasant atmosphere. Art work throughout ship was quite beautiful. Bartenders were good. Dining room staff at dinner was quite overworked, rushed, but managed to smile and deliver good service. Read Less

This was our third cruise having sailed on Norwegian and Celebrity previously. We were very pleased with those too but the focus on customer service was excellent on this ship. Every evening Desti went table to table in MDR to inquire about food and service experience. There was someone in Windjammer who did the same. The food was excellent in both venues. I appreciated the staff in Windjammer bringing beverages and pastries to your table. We went to Izumi, the sushi restaurant twice. It was excellent. Giovanni’s was also very good. We had a balcony room which had plenty of room and storage. For excursions we went on food tours in Puerto Rico, St Thomas and St Martin. I would highly recommend those tours, especially the St Martin one. Labadee was a wonderful experience and amazing beach. FYI beach lounges are free. The vendors for those and selling items were very persistent. We avoided those areas. Nemo at the excursion desk was very helpful. We enjoyed the comedian and ice skating show. We walked out of the one with Royal Caribbean dancers. We went to Champagne bar and Boleros every night and especially enjoyed the music in Boleros. Cons: I often smelled smoke in non smoking areas. It seems ventilation could be better. Also I needed to walk through the smoking section to get to the fitness center. We needed to wait for an elevator constantly. I did not like the soap/shampoo dispenser in the shower but our room steward provided small bottles of shampoo and lotion for us when we asked. The wine list was disappointing. Some of the activities started late, either 10:30 or 11 pm. The sexiest man show poolside seemed inappropriate for children to see. Embarkation was easy, disembarkation was a pain. I would take another trip on Royal Caribbean. Read Less

We chose this cruise for it's itinerary. The days at sea combined with Aruba, Curacao and Bonaire was very appealing. We had not been on Royal Caribbean in quite a few years and wanted to give it another try. We were satisfied with the cruise but nothing was so good that we would plan on returning to Royal Caribbean. The ship felt so small. The public spaces were always crowded and we had difficulty finding a place to sit for a drink after dinner. And the music was too loud for such small venues. Especially in the Dog and Duck Pub. We tried it for a drink one evening and the volume of the music drove us out. We did enjoy the music trivia in the Schooner Bar, but again the venue was so small for the crowd that showed up. Service was good in the dining room, but the food was just average. Prices for the specialty restaurants were too high to give them a try. Entertainment was fine. The Mind of a Tenor show was very good. We did enjoy the ice skating show, but even though there were multiple times listed it was the same show at each time. Read Less

My Dad (84) and I (43) had a great father/son cruise onboard the Adventure! My Dad stayed for almost a week at the Fountainbleau in Miami, and I joined him for the last couple of days. This was a very nice hotel, but I'd be happier spending half as much and staying more toward South Beach in a boutique hotel that includes breakfast (such as the Shepley, where we stayed last year). On embarkation morning, we left Miami and took a Lyft to Port Everglades. The ride ran about $37 including tip, which was quite reasonable. If you have a cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale, but are considering staying in Miami, don't let the distance bother you. We arrived at the terminal at around 10:30, and I think we were on the ship before 11. We had a brief wait while the ship was still being cleared, but once they started calling groups, it was pretty easy to get everyone onboard, as there were only a few hundred early birds. We most recently cruised on the Carnival Magic in October, which was a cruise we also enjoyed. The most noticeable difference between the appearance of the ships was the large amount of rust and lack of cleaning in some areas on the Magic, while the Adventure was kept much better. We didn't let this affect the enjoyment of our Magic cruise, but I just wanted to point out the difference in maintenance. I won't drone on about the ship itself, as it is easy enough to find information about the ship's facilities. I will say that even though this ship is a bit older than any of the Oasis class ships, there is still plenty to do. This was one of the most active cruises in memory. I play all around the ship not unlike a teenager, and I seldom had "free" time, as I was constantly racing from one area to another. I love ship activities, and would argue that I burned more calories than anyone else on this cruise (I was probably near the top on calories consumed as well) ;) Even so, I never set foot in the gym, as there was so much else to do, and I ran several times on the ship and in port. I also didn't have time to hit the casino, which is something I usually reserve for when I'm bored. I loved the FlowRider and water slides. Kudos to the sports staff, who really did an excellent job in all events. I especially love dodgeball, and Taylor made it a lot of fun. The service was fantastic throughout the ship. We had a couple small issues in our cabin the first day which were resolved quickly. Our cabin steward was not overly personable, but he did his job. Our My Time Dining waitstaff was fantastic, especially Ying from China, who always had a smile on her face. Our food generally came out quickly and hot. Speaking of food, it was quite good throughout the ship. We didn't partake in any specialty restaurants, so we were limited to just the main dining room, Windjammer, and Café Promenade. I split breakfasts between the MDR and Windjammer, mostly ate lunch in the MDR when it was open, and ate all dinners in the MDR. Café Promenade was great for snacks. I will give Carnival an edge on dining, however. They have both more free restaurants and the menus offer more options as well. For example, Carnival will have about eight appetizers on each MDR menu, most of which differ every night. RCL would only have about six, three of which were always the same. I wouldn't say I'm a finicky eater, but there are things I don't like. Sometimes I'd struggle a bit to find enough variety on the menu. I would usually get two appetizers, entrees, and desserts, but sometimes would get an extra entrée and no appetizers when the menu didn't allow for my 2/2/2 plan ;) I never left any meal hungry. I'd also say that the lunch salad has to be one of my favorite salads anywhere. There are so many options to choose from, and the chefs chop it for you and blend in the dressing. They had good buffet options in the MDR at both breakfast and lunch. If you like French Toast, hit the MDR and either get it from the buffet or order it off the menu. Either way, it is a thick piece as opposed to the Windjammer standard slice. While not as extensive as an Oasis class ship, we had pretty good entertainment. The RCL singers/dancers did two shows, there were comedians on two nights, Mo5aic (a fantastic acapella group), a Whitney Houston tribute show, a hypnotist, and I believe one night did not have a formal show because we were in San Juan late. All shows were entertaining in different ways. We also saw one ice skating show, which was equally great. Speaking of ice skating, we had a large Elvis group on our cruise, and they had most of their events in Studio B (the ice skating rink). As a result, we had less opportunity to skate. I was able to make it out after dinner on the last night. We did not do any formal excursions, but enjoyed walking around in each port (Labadee, San Juan, St. Thomas, and St. Maarten). I ran the Wandelroute to Guana Bay while in St. Maarten. If you have a sense of adventure and are physically fit, this was a great and hilly run of about 6.4 miles. Search for the thread on the cruisecritic boards that talks about how to find it. Disembarkation was sad (as always), but efficient. I had booked an earlier flight than I normally have (10:15ish), but we still had plenty of time to eat breakfast and carried our own luggage off towards the end of the self-assist period (I think around 7:30). We walked right off the ship and to the curb in just a few minutes. All in all another great cruise - thank you RCL! Read Less

Embarkation was very easy. On the ship within 5 minutes of arrival. Cabin was clean as expected. Main dining room food was good, except some meals were sent back because they were served cold. Windjammer buffet was good. Shows were just average and there were no production shows. They did not have a Love and Marriage Game show which we have always found to be enjoyable. Service was excellent. We also like the fact that there were tables and chairs around the pool area, rather than all chaise lounges. Cruise Director was invisible on the entire cruise. I WILL NOW ADDRESS THE PROBLEMS: On the first night, we could not get hot water in shower and sink. The following morning we called maintenance and they said they would fix this problem. We left the cabin for the day and when we returned, there was a note advising us that the hot water problem was resolved. I tried the shower for a few seconds and it was hot. I then decided to take a shower. After about 1 minute in the shower, the water began sputtering and black slime came out and was all over me, from head to toe. I jumped out of the shower and tried to wash the slime off me at the sink only to find that it's water was also black slime. I toweled off the best I could and called maintenance to report the issue. They told me that it was normal to get black slime after the hot water was worked on. They said that I should let it run for 20 minutes and it would clear up. I asked why the plumber didn't do it or at least leave me a note. Their answer was that he couldn't spare the time. They didn't even apologize for my problem. I filed a complaint with customer service. The next day, my TV remote did not work. I called the room steward who came with another remote and that also didn't work. He called for an IT repairman. We left the cabin for the day and when we returned, the TV seemed to work. That evening, we put on the Tv and the remote stopped working. It wouldn't change channels, adjust volume and wouldn't shut off. We called maintenance and spoke to a machine who told me to leave a message, which I did. We couldn't go to sleep with the TV blasting so I tried to pull the plug, but the plug was behind a metal screen and required a screwdriver to open it up. We wound up trying to sleep with the TV blasting. The next morning the repairman came and said that the problem was with the TV set and he replaced it. These experiences put a real damper on our vacation. Other than these problems, I rate this cruise as Average. Read Less

Embarking was so easy. Out of the taxi and on the ship within 20 mins. Same for disembarking although we took our own bags off as had an early flight. We chose this cruise to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday. Traveling with 2 children aged 10 & 8. This was our first cruise so a medium sized ship seemed more suited. Our balcony stateroom was ok, a bit tight for 4 people. We had a few issues re smells & stains these were fixed promptly by our room attendant who was amazing throughout. At first I thought the cruise was just full of people getting drunk and eating however after the first day at sea I settled into it. Didn’t find cruising particular relaxing as tried to fit everything in and with 2 active children not much time to rest. Plenty of activities to the point that so much we wanted to do we couldn’t fit it all in. Water slides were fast and fun same as climbing wall and golf course never had to queue. Flow rider always seemed to have queues of over half hour. Sports court we used many times as always some type of games on mainly basketball which my son loved. Shows were great and good variety to suit most. Ice show was amazing definitely worth watching. We ate mainly in the windjammer which had a fantastic selection, clean and no trouble finding a table. Also went to the main dining which we enjoyed. Guest services does get busy but always helpful. Used the cafe late evening for pizza and the guys in Starbucks knew our drinks after the first day. The only thing we were disappointed with was kids club. Mine would only go in the night as they found that the younger children aged 5 were mixed with them. Children aged 5 play very differently to children aged 10. Staff were very young and seemed inexperienced. My son said that the staff shouted a lot. We would go on another cruise with RC but on a larger ship. Read Less

We sail early January each year for our wedding anniversary. Best gift is time together and throw in warm weather--my idea of Heaven. Embarkation was quick and easy. We were on ship by 11am. Adventure was what we expected..very clean and sparkling. Signage was good. We quickly made our way to the Windjammer buffet. Food was ok. Crew were extremely personable and helpful. Our inside cabin (deck 7) was decent size. The space between bed and vanity on one side and bed and sofa on the other was a tight squeeze but we made it work. Our cabin steward Roberto was wonderful and our room was always immaculately cleaned. Bathroom was decent size for cruise ship and liked shower doors rather than curtain. One thing we hated was the combo shampoo-body wash in the shower. Found this to be cheap (who washes their body with shampoo & who washes their hair with body wash-ugh). So pack your own toiletries. The food on the ship was good, the service in dining room excellent. We went to Giovanni's 1 evening and it was excellent. The entertainment was very good. Royal Caribbean singers and dancers very good this cruise. Did not like one comedian as we found his late night show more about foul language than humor. Very good live music around the ship. My husband and I miss enrichment experiences: ie lectures about ports, etc. Only lectures were about selling stuff. Beautiful ports! Favorite ports in the Caribbean. Disembarkation was as easy. It was a great cruise and we look forward to sailing on Adventure again perhaps when she gets to New Jersey. Read Less

Vraiment satisfaite, incroyable navire, personnel très attentif et cordial, embarquement très rapide mais dés désembarquement très long, le lit était super confortable, la cabine 7368 super tranquille. Le spectacle sur glace était vraiment bon, j’ai beaucoup aimé le spectacle au lyric theater avec «   Elton John » Le party année 70 était très bon, j’ai beaucoup aimé la nourriture au buffet, commencé sa journée avec du saumon fumé y rien de mieux... nourriture très diversifié pour tout les goûts, le membre d’équipage qui nous accueillait au buffet à tout les jours était très divertissante, la pizza au café promenade est vraiment bonne! J’ai aimé pouvoir aller sur l’héliport on avait une vue magnifique. Les différents spectacles dans les bars étaient très bons et diversifiés. J’ai adoré les films extérieur sur le lido deck. Le point négatif c’était les enfants sans surveillance dans les spa... c’était comme une grosse garderie sans surveillance. Très contente de ma croisière! Really satisfied, incredible ship, very attentive and cordial staff, very fast boarding but very long disembarkation, the bed was super comfortable, cabin 7368 super quiet. The ice show was really good, I really liked the lyric theater show with "Elton John" The 70's party was very good, I really liked the food at the buffet, started my day with smoked salmon and nothing better ... very diverse food for all tastes, the crew member who greeted us at the buffet every day was very entertaining, the pizza at the promenade cafe is really good! I liked being able to go to the helipad, we had a magnificent view. The different shows in the bars were very good and diverse. I loved the outdoor movies on the lido deck. The downside was the unattended kids in the spas ... it was like a big, unattended daycare center. Very happy with my cruise! Read Less

This was a family cruise set in motion by my 86 year old dad, who wanted to cross visiting Aruba off of his bucket list. There were 8 of us altogether; my wife and I, my dad, my brother, my cousin and his wife and a second cousin and his girlfriend. We boarded the Adventure of the Seas at Port Everglades in Ft. Lauderdale. Embarkation was smooth, and we were on board the ship in less than an hour. Once on board, we explored the ship and took our time making our way to the Windjammer for lunch. Having read all the advice about avoiding this venue on embarkation day, we still went along with our group, and was surprised to see that while it was crowded, we were able to find a table without too much trouble. The food was typical buffet fare - good and filling but not fantastic. My wife and I booked an interior cabin on deck 10, port side aft. Having booked interior cabins before, we knew what to expect. The room was compact, but clean and comfortable. Since we find that we spend very little time in our cabin on a cruise, an interior space is perfect for our needs and is certainly more affordable. Our cabin steward, Clifton, kept our cabin spotless and regularly inquired if we needed anything. Although we didn't receive them every evening, we were greeted by three or four "towel animals" during our cruise, which are always fun. Adventure of the Seas has enough dining options to satisfy just about everyone. We decided against specialty restaurants on our cruise, and were very happy with the complimentary options that were available. We ate in the main dining room 5 nights, and enjoyed it very much. The meals were tasty and filling. On our second formal night we had prime rib and lobster tail, and were even offered and accepted seconds on the lobster! Our waiter Agnelo and our assistant waiter Eddie, were great! They were friendly, attentive, and entertaining! Eddie brought each meal to a close by sharing magic tricks with us. We still are wondering how he did them! Breakfast was usually in the Windjammer. We enjoy the variety of breakfast foods available. Everyone could find something they liked. I would say too, that the coffee on this ship was much better than what we experienced last year on the Allure of the Seas. Has RCI changed the coffee company it deals with? If so, we applaud the move! We made good use of the Cafe Promenade too. A great place to people watch, enjoy a cup of coffee, or a late night slice (or two or three!) of pizza! We also enjoyed the entertainment options available on the Adventure. Evening shows were varied, and while we didn't think the Royal Caribbean Singers & Dancers were the best we've seen, the orchestra was great! The hypnotist, the Elton John impersonator and the comedian were probably the best of the evening performances. Let me give some praise to Royal Caribbean for a current program running on most, if not all of their ships. One afternoon on a sea day, they had a special Veteran's Reception for all passengers who are vets. The orchestra played military branch tributes, there was a large cake, and special recognition was given to a couple of WW2 veterans in the group. My dad, an Army vet, attended and we were all very touched at this salute to all who have served our nation. Service on Adventure of the Seas was exemplary! The entire crew, from captain to maintenance worker, seemed to always greet us with smiles and we were asked numerous times thru the cruise if there was anything we needed or wanted to make our experience on board any better. The crew exuded a genuinely friendly vibe, and it was very much appreciated. We visited the "ABC" Islands - Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao. All three were beautiful, and it was our first time visiting. Palm Beach on Aruba was beautiful, and we enjoyed walking the beach and swimming in the sea. Of the three islands though, Curacao was our personal favorite. The architecture of the town and the friendliness of the locals was great! The standout feature for us tho, was the pontoon bridge that actually swings open like a door when a boat needs to come thru! Very unique! We did no excursions on any of the islands, so I can't speak to that, although my cousins rented an ATV in Aruba to see the island and a golf cart in Curacao. They enjoyed tooling around the islands that way and got to see much of the natural wonders of each. Our group consisted of adults, no kids, though we ranged in age from late 20's to the 50's to 80's! And once again, even with such a wide spread of ages, we were all able to find fun and enjoyable things to do which made it a fantastic cruise for everybody! I would highly recommend Adventure of the Seas and would not hesitate to sail her again; in fact, I hope someday we can! Read Less

My husband, our two sons (ages 8 and 10 years old), his aunt, two friends of mine and I all went on the Adventure of the Seas from December 7-15, 2019. We had been on several Royal ships before and our favourite one was the Allure. We chose to ‘downsize’ to the Adventure to allow us to visit the ABC islands. First off, we cannot say enough great things about the islands – they are by far our favourite that we have sailed to on a cruise! Regarding the ship, there were a few downsides besides not having the Abyss, Central Park or the Boardwalk. First off, the artwork that adorned the ship walls was a bit bizarre considering it is a family-type vessel. There are a lot of nudes (and not just upper body) hanging in places. Second, the ship in spots did show its age more than others we have sailed. The shows were also somewhat disappointing. Not so much the talent who were quite good, but the overall plots. We have been spoiled by the Broadway-at-Sea and diving shows on the bigger ships. And Vroom and Surf was spotty at best. We took two interior interconnecting cabins which seemed much smaller than other ships. The beds were quite hard and so we asked our stateroom attendant to add extra blankets to provide a bit more comfort. RCL really needs to change mattresses the next time the ship goes into dry dock. Having said that, we had an amazing trip! I cannot say enough about the crew! They are by far the best we have ever encountered in our eight cruises. They were genuinely friendly and seemed happy to be working onboard. They were knowledgeable and helpful! One thing we discovered that we had never paid attention to before was the country scavenger hunt. You have to find a crew from each of the countries listed on the sheet. (It would have been nice had the ship updated the sheet to be current to sail date but that is a different story lol.) My sons and I had a blast hunting down as many countries as we could and met wonderful people along the way! We literally stalked a few crew but we ultimately won the hunt! We are planning on going for our second win on the Anthem in March. Shout outs to: Johanna, Maria, Leticia, Marisol, and Mobin all from Guest Services, Faye the Ship Comptroller, Hector and Judy deck 6 starboard aft stateroom attendants, Conrad aka Shorty at the Promenade Café, Chicken Nugget in the Kid’s Camp, and especially Vanita in Next Cruise! You are wonderful and made our cruise extra special!!!! Our kids loved the Adventure Ocean kids’ camp. On previous cruises the kids would go slightly begrudgingly and only spend an hour at a time there. This cruise they begged us to go! We gave our son signing privileges for his brother and himself but they often stayed until we forced them to leave. The food was quite good – the braised beef ribs and prime rib were highlights in the main dining room. We were scared that there was no Sorrentos onboard but the pizza at Café Promenade was delicious!!!! We ate far too many slices lol. I had done some research and had been told by people on cruise forums that the ship time stayed with Florida time. I therefore was late for signing up for the ice-skating times the first day it was offered because in fact the ship changed time to local time. I was worried that our kids wouldn’t get a chance to skate but went at the correct time the next sea day skating was offered and all of us got to skate for 30 minutes which was quite fun. We bought the complete digital photo package during a Black Friday special and took advantage every opportunity we could to get shots. We haven’t received ours since returning and are in the process of contacting the photo company to sort things out. The photographers onboard though were great and very patient with our not so patient boys! We really liked listening to Peter James Esau at the Schooners Bar. Switched on Band was amazing! The Almost Elton John show was entertaining. My 10-year-old son laughed hysterically at the mentalist show. And I laughed a lot at Ralph Harris’ show. I was a member of the CruiseCritic group for this cruise and met a lot of great people through these forums. We participated in the slot pull and the duck hunts. Embarkation was a breeze and took no time at all. There was a 30 minute or so delay when we returned back to Fort Lauderdale but that had to do with US Customs and Immigration and was not caused by RCL. However be sure to factor in extra time when thinking about booking your flights home. All in all my family and I had an absolute blast on the Adventure! We would highly recommend sailing on her to anyone!!!!! Read Less

This eight night Southern Caribbean route left from Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida - one of the best US ports in my experience - so I already had particularly high expectations. This itinerary had a slightly more uncommon itinerary as it had Bonaire in the lineup alongside Aruba and Curacao, rather than Aruba, Curacao, and some other port of call. Embarkation went exceptionally well, the new digital check-in process made it literally as simple as having a member scan our passport, validate the last four numbers of our SeaPass card account, referencing the security photo we pre-uploaded, and sending us on our merry way to the gangway. I'm hoping to see this again in my future cruise experiences on RCL. The ship was dated in some visual aspects with regards to the stateroom areas, but I can't speak as to whether this is standard across all of the Voyager-class ships, as the Adventure was my first Voyager-class ship. Some neat features I haven't seen on other vessels (mostly Carnival, my only other RCL experience was on the Brilliance) were the Peek-a-Boo Bridge feature on Deck 11 that allowed you to watch the officers pilot the ship. Public areas were well kept and felt modern; the Imperial Lounge was my preferred hangout spot but during lower traffic hours I spent my time along the Promenade in general. Our cabin was a very spacious cabin in my experiences cruising - we got a standard Ocean View stateroom but we were located on Deck 6 along the front of the ship, our ocean view window looked directly out the front. I originally thought this would be a 'cool' thing to have, but realistically we ended up never using it since it was away from the bed and at night it was a requirement to have it closed as the lighting from the stateroom could interfere with the bridge's ability to see clearly at night. This was a lesson learned on my part, I'm not going to ding the cruise line for asking a passenger to contribute to safety. I'm normally not a huge buffet fan but the Windjammer was delightful on this ship. The varied dinner themes were pretty close to realistic while also accompanying the always-in-demand staples like hot dogs and hamburgers. We generally ate in the main dining room for dinner, and they didn't screw up once. My wife and I purchased the unlimited specialty dining package as we had a higher proportion of sea days and a little more money to spend this go around - my personal suggestion is if you have a lot of sea days and you've an affinity for one of the specialty restaurants: go for it! The ability to have specialty lunch on sea days is worth it. The ONLY problem I had on the entire trip was that the Chef's Table experience was not in a more intimate environment. On most ships it seems that Chef's Table is located in a relatively isolated area, and my experience on the Brilliance matched that. On Voyager-class ships, however, the Chef's Table is located on balcony between the fourth and fifth decks of the dining room. With the timing of the other dinners, this leads to the nightly dining room show interrupting your Chef's Table experience twice. The onboard entertainment was generally positive, though it felt more repetitive than what we had on the Brilliance. I'm not sure if this was an effect of trying to shove lots of people into venues that might be too small, and the then-new need of having to repeat some similar types of activities to accommodate everybody. We also had an extremely large amount of passengers with mobility issues, and a handful of passengers with 'mobility issues' - they would ride their scooters around and then park them somewhere and you'd watch them saunter off to something while leaving their scooter parked terribly - so this did lead to some spaces feeling more cramped than I feel RCL had intended. Service was impeccable. Laundry was wonderful, stateroom attendant was fantastic. Dining room staff was AMAZING. Best I've ever had on any of my cruises. We found a couple of bartenders who took a liking to my wife and I and we had a great time. I'm not particularly qualified to speak about ports and shore excursions on this particular itinerary due to a recurrent injury that flared up on this trip, limiting my ability to explore around ports. I did get off the ship in every port and at least make a solid attempt to wander around and find something. Curacao was fantastic, Aruba seemed a little light on the historical stuff from what we found? We had a really good experience nonetheless with this adorable coffee stand in the Royal Plaza Mall and I'd highly encourage anybody to stop by and say hello. Bonaire is the one that conflicts me the most. I'm a location collector by nature - getting to go somewhere is 70% of the prize, even if I hate the place. First, let me be clear: I didn't hate Bonaire. There just wasn't anything to do that I was interested in, and that's mostly my own fault. I wanted to collect a place. But if you're not into snorkeling or scuba diving or buying overpriced trinkets, Bonaire is not the place for you. All of my criticisms were things based around circumstances outside of RCL control or that my own stupidity brought upon myself, so I don't have the heart to knock the otherwise amazing experience I had with my wife onboard the Adventure. I'm hoping that with an itinerary change, season change, and stateroom change? None of the problems I mentioned will exist. Wife and I booked the 18 night repo from Galveston to Copenhagen in April 2021 and I'm thinking our small complaints will be gone. Read Less

I had sailed on the Adventure of the Seas previously and enjoyed the ship and it’s crew, so I booked back to back cruises (Dec. 7 and 15). The ship is still structurally a wonderful vessel, but the crew, service and food leave a lot to be desired. The my time dining room is set up with too many tables. Cramming diners into the space provides challenges for the diners. I was bumped repeatedly be other diners and the wait staff. There are not enough waiters to make the meal delivery and accuracy efficient. Longer than average waits to order and between courses, cold food and uncollected dirty dishes on the table were the norm for us. The new mattresses were rock hard and unbearable for our backs. It took nearly the entire first cruise (8-day) for housekeeping to properly address the issue. The cruse staff was over-all better than average, but at times a bit arrogant and mocking and disrespectful. We enjoy trivia and appreciated most of the staff, but 2 members were extremely difficult to understand and blamed the passengers for their inability to be understood. Not only could they not pronounce words, but it was apparent that they did not like their assignment. The activities manager needs to reevaluate assignments. Passengers deserve much better. The noise level in our hallway was terrible. We were stuck with families who seem to think the hall was a proper playground for children and their parents who loudly addressed them, often from halfway down the hall. Security? What security? The entertainment was average. The cast of the production shows is talented, but the shows were basic and boring. Debarkation was a huge mess. While the organization was established, it was not executed properly and the exit on the final morning collapsed. Protocol was abandoned, and the order of the departures was nor followed. We were over an hour late in departing and got stuck behind people with later scheduled departures. Read Less

I just got off the adventures of the seas and it was one of the most wonderful trips I’ve had. Don’t listen to the negative reviews. Some people are just negative Nancy’s. I was in a spacious balcony cabin on deck eight and there was so much space for storage my niece and I actually had an empty cabinet and barely I have a side of the closet full. The bathroom was a typical cruise bathroom but it did have the sliding doors instead of a curtain so the bathroom didn’t slide. The food in the main dining room was amazing. There was a night there was nothing I chose to eat from the menu however that’s not Against the ship that’s my taste. There were plenty of chairs available by the pool side at all times. Yes they were chair hogs but that still left plenty of chairs. The bar staff was amazing the staff over all was amazing. I’m not sure why the one reviewer stated there was no club to go to? Because my niece and my kids and myself close the club at 3 AM every night so I’m not sure why she said there was no place to go dancing or there was no nightlife. I love the café promenade for late night snacks after leaving the club. And as far as the wind jammer there were never any long lines except of course naturally on the first day and the food was wonderful and there was plenty of choices for breakfast lunch and or dinner. The entertainment staff was wonderful. Kelly Lawrence and adorable Feliciano katie abd Sophie were amazing. I believe I saw the cruise director Drew wants but the cruise staff was awesome . Read Less

The ship itself is kind of average, nicely kept, but a bit dated in rooms and hallways. Public areas are all updated and very nice. Staff and food was very good. I actually thought the food was at the top of all the RCL cruises we have taken! Had the dining package and really enjoyed, even though there were only a few specialty restaurants. They decorated for Christmas while on the ship and did a tree lighting. Christmas music played continuously after that. It would have been fine if they had limited the Christmas music to the Promenade area, but it was playing non stop on the pool deck as well. Felt like I was at the mall rather than on a Caribbean cruise. The worst aspect of the trip was the bed, as it was rock hard. I realize preferences vary, but the mattress we were on would only be suitable for someone who likes to sleep on the floor, as in a concrete floor! Our room attendant tried her best to make it a bit easier on the body, which she did, but I would never book this particular ship again because of this. Overall, we had a fun time though...enjoyed the ports/excursions, the live music around the ship, and the absolutely beautiful weather! Read Less

We were a group of 7. Myself (53), wife (59), our married daughter and son in-law (both 36) and their 3 children aged 16, 14, 10. My wife and I are experienced cruisers however the kids are not. We chose this cruise because we were paying for everyone and it was affordably priced compared to other ships and itineraries during this period. We had three cabins. Two balconies (one corner aft) and one interior. Embarkation in Fort Lauderdale was easy and smooth. We arrived at the ship at apx. 11 am and boarding had already begun. We were walking through the promenade by 11:15. The ship is in excellent condition. While there are tiny signs of her age in the room nothing that was off putting. The common areas were all meticulously maintained. The Windjammer is busy during peak times but there is an easy flow to the traffic and there was very little waiting to serve yourself. We were always able to find a table and the servers for the most part were quite attentive. I thought the quality of the food was quite good for buffet style eating. Breakfast especially stood out. We did eat most lunches here but were particularly hungry because of the big breakfasts we ate. The MDR was, as expected, very good. Our waiter and asst. waiter were a treat. They tripped over themselves to make sure we enjoyed our food. Sometime brining out extra things we hadn't order just so we could sample them. Entertainment was good. We especially enjoyed the figure skating show. We went back for a second round we enjoyed it so much. We also had fun at the family public skate. I found one of the bands on Boleros (playing 80's top 40) so good I stalked their performance almost everyday. The younger kids loved the waterslides.. Our cabin attendant was amazing... She must work 20 hours a day to do all that she does. The bar service was exceptional. I never waited more than a minute, in any bar, to have my order taken. Even during busy times. Grand Cayman... we just wondered the port area and did a little shopping. Costa Maya... Boys were zip lining and girls were swimming with dolphins. 5 stars for both. I also got a great massage in the port shopping area for a very affordable price. Cozumel was a dune buggy and snorkel excursion booked through the cruise line. 4 stars. We enjoyed it but the walk from the meeting point to the actual dune buggies was a little excessive first thing in the morning when you are barely even awake. LOL. The 10 year old was part of the Kids club and loved it! Debarkation was a bit chaotic. Getting off the ship was fine. However border control point was very poorly organized and took twice as long as it should have and the traffic to get into the port caused our Uber to take twice as long as predicted. Thats on the port and not Royal Caribbean though. We will be back on Royal again soon and would definitely sail on Adventure anytime again. Read Less

This was our fourth cruise on Adventure and 46th with Royal Caribbean. We had a Junior Suite, 1646, port side, deck 10. Room was splendid with ample storage and closet space, a welcome change from the tight surroundings on Empress the week before. Dining was Deck 3, my time dining. Food was good not great. The soups were generally outstanding. The second formal night had small lobster and prime rib. My lobster was slightly flaky and part of my prime rib was undercooked. Service was excellent. They now get you in and out in under an hour and a half. The staff was great. The cruise director, Drew Devine, does a great job and is quite personable. Overall, the entertainment was superior from top to bottom. This cruise had particularly good singers and comedians. The ice show is the original one, but still well performed. A behind the scene tour at Studio B was great. Hearing from the skaters and how they got to here was quite interesting. A meal with an officer was done on Day Two and not many passengers attended, only two tables. When you hit 340 cruise points you get invited to these events. They are not to be missed, trust me. The Diamond lounge expanded to include all of the Viking Crown Lounge. Service was excellent along with the appetizers. They had to do this because the Concierge Club is no more on this class ship and has been replaced by the Suite Lounge. Only Pinnacles and Suite guests get to go here, so Diamond Plus members have some built up resentment towards this change. Get over it or go on a Vision Class ship to visit the Concierge Club. Ports were good. Labidee was in great shape and fun. You don’t have to go to Coco Cay to have a perfect beach day. In Saint Maarten we always go to Orient Beach, as it is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. I will never tire of it. All in all a great cruise, EXCEPT IN SAN JUAN, after I received a message that no roaming charges applied, I selected data roaming for the day. I awoke to a frantic call from my son that he received a message, I had incurred a $2,700 roaming data charge from Cellular at Sea on my Xfinity bill. Morale of the story- never select data roaming on your cell phone. Fortunately, after numerous calls to RCCL and Xfinity, the Xfinity agent made a one time adjustment to reduce the majority of that charge. What a relief. Read Less

Overall, great experience! Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Restaurant staff in Main Dining (waiters Raj & Richard) were the most accommodating, friendliest and welcoming guys ever! There were some aspects of the ship which are due for renovations (coming Spring ‘21): spots in carpet, stains in some booth seat backs, and some wear marks on chairs in main dining room. Otherwise, the ship was immaculate. It did not have an “old” or “outdated” feel at all. The dining room and theaters were all very modern. The shows were decent—musical show was probably more geared toward 50+ crowd, but still nicely done. Ice skating was good—not as nice as Oasis class ships, but still put together well. Room was A+. No complaints at all with mattresses (I read they just replaced them this month). Storage space in room was larger than in Oasis-class ships. Bathroom was as expected. Only 2 electrical outlets in entire room though, so be prepared. Overall, this was a great experience. Read Less

THE GOOD: Getting on and off the ship was the fastest we have ever encountered. Fantastic definitely pre- register. The food in the main dining room was very good. We had a fantastic server made each night special for us. The Ice show was awesome and the main shows were adequate. Diamond lounge was very small so they closed the whole Viking lounge just for the diamond members each night from 4:30 to 8:00. People were very friendly the whole cruise. Cruisers and staff combined. THE BAD: The food in the Windjammer was the same ever day. Not much of a variety unless you like chicken made five different ways. We ate at the dining room for breakfast one morning and had a long wait for our food. Then it showed up with wrong order. The tables were not cleaned off as plates were left everywhere in the Windjammer. The crew seemed overwhelmed with the clean up. So we just piled up the plates at the end of the table and sat down. On other RCCL ships they came around with drinks in the Windjammer at lunch but this ship you had ti get up to go get them. Of course the towel chair savers were out in force. Hard to get a place by the pool unless you got there by 8:00 am OVERALL: Ship was clean, people were friendly and atmosphere was great. We would take this cruise again on the adventure but to different ports. Read Less

Stayed in an Airbnb about 1 mile from the pier. We were listed to arrive at 1 pm but we arrived at 11 am. We filled out all of the info online before arriving(cc info, pictures etc....). This was by far and away the easiest and fastest embarkation of any of my past 20 cruises. A five minute wait in the security line and then an agent looked at my passport, scanned my boarding pass and took a picture of me with her tablet. I was now allowed to board the ship. Literally no wait. First time I never had to wait. Second time on this ship. First time was 10 years ago out of San Juan. Inside cabin with a view of the Promenade. Typical cabin but very little drawer space. Usually a windjammer buffet in the Caribbean will have outdoor seating. This was disappointing in that it was completely closed in. No outdoor dining at all. 1st night I ordered a Cosmo. A basic drink that was not strong at all. Cost.. $14.16 Just a few years ago I would have paid $7 or $8 Everything about cruising now is about nickel n diming you. Cruising just isn’t the same to me anymore with all of the money grabbing techniques they use now. Sometimes you just want to relax in your cabin and watch tv or a movie. The tv lineup is awful. You can watch ESPN, CNN, MSNBC or watch a Rcl channel trying to sell you something. If you want to rent a movie for 24 hours, get out $12. If you want room service, it is now $8 10 years ago they had a late night disco where people would gather to dance and drink. That has been replaced with a pay restaurant. Nothing happening at night unless you want to gamble in the casino. The shows in the theatre consisted of two late night comedians, one of which we lasted all of 7 minutes in his routine. The other shows were a tribute to the Eagles and a juggling act. The juggler was actually really good and funny. Just a boring ship if you stay up past 8 pm. You will be asked 100 times if you want to tour the galley. They never mention a price but I finally found out that it is $34 per person to tour the galley at 10:30am with mimosas served afterwards. Dining was fine. Not sure why I’m the past couple years that it is nearly impossible to get anything to drink other than water. If you ask for tea, be prepared to wait. Just bizarre. Johnny Rockets was great. I think that was $12 a person. Beautiful ship with great potential but I don’t see myself returning to RCL again. Read Less

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
