This was our second NYE cruise and third time on the Adventure. We appreciated the upgrades that were added in the last dry dock. Embarking and debarking were easy, probably the best we have ever experienced at Port Everglades. We had a walkoff with the Suite Concierge and it took 12 minutes total. Our grand suite (1578) on deck 10 was lovely and very convenient to the elevators. Very large with plenty of storage, a mini fridge, wetbar, a nice bathroom and balcony. The balcony had a padded lounger, a table and two chairs. It is completely covered, and was quite pleasant most of the time. We were a little concerned the cabin might be noisy as we were located under the pool deck, but that was only an issue on NYE when we tried to turn in around 12:30. Once the deck party ended, all was quiet again. We had the Ultimate Dining Package and enjoyed one dinner at Chops, one at Izumi and four at Giovanni’s Table. Chops and Izumi are both on the Royal Promenade and were a little too noisy for us. Giovanni’s Table is located next to the Windjammer with a beautiful ocean view. We got great service from Amar and Arvind at GT. Christopher was the Suite Concierge and did a great job. He made our dinner reservations pre-cruise, though we changed several onboard. He also hosted a suite party at Giovanni’s Table for lunch one sea day. The party was well attended with many officers, including the Captain and Hotel Director. Nearly every day we received goodies in our suite, including gifts from the Captain, the Hotel Director, Christopher and the casino. We had requested a beach towel as our Diamond Plus gift, but housekeeping called and said they were out. So they substituted a tote, which came in handy as we were packing. Service was good throughout the cruise. Our cabin steward, Renato, was very good and kept the cabin in great shape. Mercedes was the cruise director, and did a fine job. Entertainment was good. We really enjoyed the production shows, the comedian and the staff talent show, Adventure’s Got Talent. The outdoor movies were fun, including Mamma Mia, Here We Go Again and Oceans Eight. We had colds all week so we stayed on the ship in Grand Cayman. In Costa Maya, we took a taxi to the town and enjoyed a great walk. At Cozumel, we shopped at the port and returned to the ship early. Even though we were not feeling the best, we had a great time and will gladly sail on the Adventure again. Read Less

We were on this ship for the 8-night 2018 Christmas Cruise departing Ft. Lauderdale with stops in Nassau, Puerto Rico, St. Maarten and St. Kitts. This was the second Christmas cruise for us on this ship, the last one 4 years ago out of San Juan, PR. Overall, this was our 5th cruise on RCL and our 8th cruise overall. We are an active couple in our early 50’s and were traveling with our 2 daughters and son in-law, all in their early 20’s. We checked in early (11am) and were allowed to board the ship immediately. This was very nice compared to our previous cruise on Norwegian where we had to wait in a waiting area for more than 1 hour. Luggage drop and check-in was painless, but I had also completed all the cruise documents including pictures online ahead of time. We had lunch at the Windjammer Café and then relaxed in the Blue Moon (Deck 14) until the rooms opened at 1pm. We had 2 Balcony Staterooms (8246 and 8250). One was a bit larger than the other and had a sofa bed vs. the Pullman (overhead bed) in the other. Overall the cabin was clean, the beds comfortable and plenty of space to store all our stuff, including scuba gear. The balconies on this ship are a lot more “closed in” than on newer ships, but we knew this from our previous cruise. We opted for My Time dining since the 5:30 seating was too early and the 8:30 too late for our liking. I did make 6:30 reservations for us ahead of time and we asked for a quiet table near a window at our first seating which we were given. We were very happy with this location and with our wait staff, so we then asked to have this table request in our profile for all of the following nights. The check-in person (Rene) did his best to accommodate this request and we were able to get that table all nights except one where he went out of his way to find us another quiet table by a window. The food in the dining room was good for most evenings, some were great and a few were just OK. Overall, I would rate the food a 7/10, the wait staff a 10/10. Bar service in the dining room could be a bit slow. We liked the elegance and lighting of the dining room better than those on Norwegian Escape. Our daughter and Son-in-Law had specialty dinners at Izumi and the Italian restaurant and felt that they were very special and slower paced. We did opt for the drink package which, for us, makes the shipboard experience much more relaxing (no stress about drink prices). We felt the wine/beer selection was good, but the mixed drinks were quite weak. We learned quickly that specifying the alcohol (i.e. gold Tequila, dark Rum, etc.) would improve the drink and the bar tenders were happy to comply. We also learned which bar tenders were reasonable with their pours (at Solarium bar we would sometimes see them not even fill a single shot glass of alcohol for the drink) and we would frequent those locations. It was also nice that specialty coffees were included in the package (not true for Norwegian). We attended most performances and game shows and especially enjoyed the comedians and game shows (Battel of the Sexes, The Quest). I don’t know if it was just coincidence, but the main comedian was the same as 4 years ago, but he was still great and only some of this jokes were repeats. Getting seats in the main theater was never an issue, but for the game shows in the Imperial Lounge an early arrival was critical. The guy in the piano bar (all songs by request) was great and the place was always packed. I would rate the entertainment 8/10. We are not the type to lay by the pool, but deck chairs seemed available anytime we walked through the pool area, even more so in the Solarium. We like to walk while on board and really enjoyed that one can circle the complete ship (as long as the weather is not too nasty and they close access to the bow) on deck 4. Most other ships we have been on do not have access to the bow. Some in our group got a massage and enjoyed this except the sales pitch for overpriced stuff at the end. We did not spend any time in the casino or gym. We disembarked early taking our own luggage to assure we would make our return flight. Disembarkation and customs/immigration was much quicker than expected. Overall we rarely felt that this was a Holiday cruise with the ship at capacity (of course the decorations and music were reminders). Ship size was a good compromise in having lots of activities (rock climbing, ice skating, Flowrider, etc.) and open spaces (the promenade) but not the big distances of other larger ships. We did miss the more elaborate shows available on Oasis class ships. All crew members we interacted with were friendly and professional and some really stood out in trying to make our stay as good as possible. There were no incidents that we needed to complain about. Overall I would rate this cruise a solid 8/10. Read Less

Needed the nights to reach Diamond tier and this cruise gave us them. Eastern Caribbean which we love although three sea days were more than we like. We had breakfast and dinner in the MDR every day and enjoyed the good service and good food. All the staff went out of their way to make everyone's cruise a good one. This was our fourth time on the Adventure and that was the main reason we booked her. Our normal port to sail out of is San Juan due to fewer sea days and more ports that we love. We will be on the Freedom for a B2B in six weeks and will see what Diamond tier has. As with any ship in saltwater, there are small spots of rust here and there. At every port we heard tap, tap, tap as they were working to chip away rust and paint (a neverending chore.) The ship was well maintained although there were stains in places on the carpeting. Winter came too early in Michigan this year so it was good to have a week of warmth. Read Less

We are pretty loyal to Royal Caribbean and have been on 16 RCL cruises. First time on Adventure. It is a nice ship, well maintained. Our cabin (9654) was clean and had more storage than we needed. I like that the mini bar is empty and you order what you want put in there. Our balcony was a nice size and the chairs reclined. Cabin steward was nice, but reserved. I made a couple of requests (extra pillows and towels) and he was very accommodating at keeping the extra towels in the room. We purchased a 3 night Specialty Dining package in advance and won't do that again. We were told to book our 3 dinners as soon as we got on the ship or we might not get into the restaurants at a decent time, so we did. Turns out that EVERY reservation we made conflicted with a show we wanted to see, which we didn't find about out until the night before from our Cruise Compass. When we tried to change the reservation, there were no decent times left (only 6PM or 9PM). for alternative nights. The MDR, and our waiter/assistant waiter were so fantastic, that we wished we'd just dined there every night. Now for the "not so much"...the entertainment. If I see one more comedian joking about his colonoscopy I'm gonna scream. The featured singer obviously didn't feel like performing that night and the "variety shows" were shrill, disconnected and NOT about the title of the show. The Ice Show was good. We ALWAY enjoy the adult show "The Quest" and the cruise director made it a lot of fun. We have seen the 70's disco show a dozen times so skipped that. Some trivia games were fun, but some of the cruise director staff seemed tired and cranky at a few of them. The casino was way too smoky for us but I did run in long enough to lose $20 INSTANTLY on a Wheel of Fortune machine. LOL We still had fun and managed to relax, which is what we needed. We told our cabin steward when we met him that we are late sleepers and if we slept so late that he couldn't get to our room, that was fine with us. It happened often and everything worked out fine. I would definitely go back on Adventure of the Seas, for the cleanliness, itinerary, and food, but NOT for the entertainment. Read Less

We liked the 8 night cruise instead of 7. The embarkation was probably the best we have experienced in many, many cruises. There were 300 Diamond Members and 200 Diamond Plus Members - all stuffed into the lounge and spilling out into the Viking Crown Lounge. Luggage was delivered in ample time to unpack before muster. We are Diamond Plus with over 300 nights on Royal. However, We did not have robes - did not have shampoo - did not have lotion - did not have our free bottle of wine - when we entered the cabin. As it was a busy day, we were ok with it being delivered the next day. Surprise - not delivered on day 2 either!. When I asked the cabin steward about it - he said that we had to REQUEST those things or we wouldn't get them. I said OK - I request them. Everything but the wine was delivered that night. I called the Loyalty rep and had to leave a message. Day 3 was my birthday. Since it was formal night and the meal was steak - we planned to drink the red wine from Crown and Anchor.... You guessed it - NO WINE. No wine on Day 4. Finally after repeated trips to the loyalty desk - wine was delivered - only it was PINK WINE - not red. Another trip to the loyalty desk and a trade was made. The loyalty rep apologized profusely and said that we would be his guest to dinner at the Chops Grill to make up for the glitch. We were happy. Reservations were at 6:00. We checked in at 5:55 and were seated. We waited - waited - waited. It was 6:20 and we were still sitting... No message from the loyalty rep. We asked the waiter to please try to contact him to see if he was coming. We were informed that he would TRY to be there by 6:40 and we should go ahead and order. About 6:45 he showed up and scarfed up food while on his cellphone. He accepted 6 calls from various people during dinner. Needless to say - we couldn't wait to get out of there. We even skipped dessert. The ports were places we had been before, so we just did an overview tour. On San Juan, we did want to see the city but did not want to shop, so we signed up for the "Old and New San Juan" tour. We did it online and chose that tour because it did not include shopping. The driver went straight to the downtown area and kicked everybody off the bus for one hour to "shop". We objected and others objected as well, but he said he had to move the bus and we needed to leave. We wasted a whole hour of a 2 1/2 hour tour just sitting. When we complained - we were referred to "Freddie", Asst Mgr of the Tours and he told us that RCI Tours were not in charge of the tours and there was nothing he could do. Is there noone following up on these tours???? That's scary. The rest of the cruise was fun. The dining staff were excellent. Food was tasty and varied. We really liked the Diamond Breakfast areafor a quiet fresh breakfast. It is a nice perk. Disembarkation went about as smoothly as we have seen. All in all - We do enjoy cruising and we normally are treated very well on Royal. I think this was just a fluke. I sure hope so - because we are going again with Royal in February. If this repeats - we may have to re-think things...... Read Less

We chose this Cruise because it Departed from a port near us, was reasonable and we frequently sail with Royal Caribbean. We really liked the Voyager Class ships due and larger due to the smooth sailing and amenities. We always enjoy the Promenade with its shops and cafe'. The staff was very friendly and eager to please, which always makes for a happy cruise. The only comment on the Ship itself is that it could use a litte upgrading in the appointments, ie; furniture, carpets (Room & Public areas). The food was excellent in all areas, entertainment great and varied. The Ports were a bit repetitive but with our many Caribbean cruises that is hard to avoid and some of them tend to look alike and sell the SAME touristy merchandise. But it's still the best way to vacation in our opinion. Unpack once and others "Drive", make your bed, feed you and entertain you. We, however, have a similar complaint with several cruise lines, Royal Caribbean included. They have a tough time adhering to their own rules. They constantly allow passengers to come to the Main Dining room, for Dinner, in Shorts, Wife Beater T-Shirts, flip flops and hats. We have even seen some in Bathing suit cover-ups. We are not saying that they should be dressed formally but come on, it's dinner ! If you prefer to dress sloppy go to the Buffet which is very casual. When we mention this to Dining Room senior staff they tell us Management instructs them to advise guests of the dress policy but to allow them to be seated anyway. We object to this as it changes the atmosphere of the dining room dramatically. Read Less

Live in the area and wanted to visit the itinerary listed. Boarding went smoothly, room was ready. Entered and looked over Promenade and saw the folks across the way, waved to folks in elevator as a joke, but they waved back. Also noticed security camera outside my window, so curtains stayed closed for 8 days. Only opened for nightly wine time. Food in MDR was okay, often not hot since it seemed we were far from the kitchen. Staff were attentive, Axel did a great job! Need more variety for dinners too. Didn't book excursion, too pricey on ship and long lines of complaints. Walked around ports and had fun. Need to have towel checkout moved to opposite side of ship so you don't have to walk through the smokers. Agree with others stating, perpetual upsales as you walked ship were irritating. Also, Bingo pricing way higher from 6 mths ago. Productions shows were good, skating best show on board. Comedy shows dated, Sammy singer was unintelligible, bad mike?!? Main Band was very good.

We always arrive the night before so that no worries about cruising. Several hotels offer parking with $20 per person for a shuttle to and from the cruise port. The boarding process in Ft Lauderdale was well organized with friendly receptionists. A new twist is your room card is not handed out at check in, it is in an envelope outside your room. The cabin stewards were extremely nice and helpful. The dining staff was very friendly and accommodating. We have always found main dining of good quality, so never pay about $100 to $135 for specialty. Seems nuts to do that. Lobster and good stakes always available during the week no charge. Flow Rider is dangerous! Lady broke her leg falling off. Everyone except the professionals had severe falls. The entertainment was some good some bad. The singers were the poorest of any on our 20+ cruises. They were so poor that it detracted from superior dancers. We laughed at the comedy shows. Ice show is very good, just bring a jacket because the room is cold. The casino supervisors were the worst I have ever seen. They acted afraid to confront unruly passengers. Getting off at ports was not an issue with 30 minute wait time the longest and 5 minutes the shortest. Casino dropped off letter last day with $500 discount on future cruise. It surprised me because I only played total of 6 hours entire trip. When setting at table first night always get $700 from dealer. Just put the money in your pocket and play normal. They think you are a gambler and will get a discount coupon later in the week! We did self assist at 6:30am. Back at hotel and on the road home by 7:30!!! Read Less

This was our first time on Adventure. It was my sister’s birthday so we booked a Grand Suite. This is my favorite room and having the large bathroom for two with a tub really makes a difference. We had a great room steward, treats came to the cabin several,times and having access to the Suite Lounge really makes a cruise special. We ate at Chops 3 nights. We had filets twice and outstanding lamb chops the 3rd night. If you go, ask for Igor. Friends who were on the week before recommended him to me and he was fabulous! We ate at Giovanni’s one night and it was also wonderful. We had filets but I also recommend the Ossobucco here. Schooner Bar had a great entertainer, Giovanni, and he had the crowd singing along every night. The Solarium stays quite crowded but it is very nice. I did not think the food in the MDR was up to par but it was ok and the servers were all great. This IS the place you want to have lunch on sea days. But you cant go in bathing suits....shorts and above. There is a fabulous salad bar and the servers make and chop the salad for you as you select your ingredients, usually a pasta bar or stir fry bar, fruit section and cooked items.....lovely desserts...chocolate fountain and ice cream one day. There is also a lunch menu if you just want to stay seated and be served! Much nicer than the Windjammer, which I felt was needing some help on this ship. My sister had a soda package and the freestyle soda machines were often not working. All in all, the ship looked beautiful, we liked the entetainment, met some great people and had a fabulous time. I would go on Adventure again without hesitation. Read Less

We chose this cruise first for ports to visit and secondly as a 'deal' of a cruise which always helps. Overall experience was very good. Dining room exceptional service and food. Tried not to visit the Windjammer as it is always super crowded and sometimes maniacal. Enjoyed every one of the evening entertainment shows! Adult swimming pool closes a bit early... but enjoyed it at other times. Did not use too many other activity spots - watched the flow rider activities and utilized the Pizza Place outside of other eating times. Hard to find a drink of water without buying a package deal :-( Enjoyed the miniature golf. Note included on our room problem(s). Management tried to assist as much as they could regarding our room problem but wished we had been moved to another room. We have cruised with RCL before and have already pre-booked other cruises but think we will be slowing down on cruising soon. Housekeeping staff exceptional. Did not do any shore excursions - too costly - people that did said they were great. Did not travel with children. Surprisingly disembarkation went well with the amount of people on self-assist.

We wanted a nice week away with a fun schedule, and RCI Adventure of the Sea fit the bill. It is a lovely ship but she is showing her age. We had a large rust spot in our room right up against the carpet and balcony door. Other issues that brought the rating down: it became the second time in a row sailing that we had to walk the halls looking for our luggage. All pieces each had two pieces of RCI info clearly showing stateroom and name yet twice now they haven’t found their way to our room. We had a 8 night restaurant add on, one of the nights we were going to Chops. When we showed up at our reservation time we were told someone showed up late and we were going to have to wait in the Schooner Bar. I was furious that because of someone’s lack of timing I would have to wait to eat and they didn’t offer to pay for a drink or two. We left in frustration and had a wonderful meal at Johnny Rockets with great service. There was a time change during cruise and did not find out until the morning after it had taken place. Isn’t the Compass newsletter the night prior exactly where you would expect that information? After paying for Use of Vroom, their were days were you could not access it - very annoying. Another complaint was there never seemed like there were enough drink waiters. We were going to the bar ourselves the most on this one! Last complaint and I do not believe it was a fault of RCI, upon disembarkation the escalator was not working. People were forced to use the elevator, standing on the sides in small numbers or carry your luggage down on your own. Not a great way to say goodbye. I do want to be clear that the staff of Adventure were friendly and did their best to be helpful. I enjoy Royal Caribbean and after all my complaints I still believe in them. Read Less

We chose this cruise for ship and Itinerary Our first on RCCL and Adventure was perfect not too big or small we never felt crowded in any venue plenty to do onboard. Port everglades embarking and debarking was excellent easiest ever so far. The food was great just not enough choices for dinner in MDR . windjammer was always crowded only ate there 3 times had breakfast in MDR good food and service lunches were mainly pizza or snacks from the Cafe. The ports were amazing never enough time to do everything we will probably take another cruise to get to all of them again. Labadee : Beautiful beach day and the roller coaster was short but worth it San Juan : Excellent history we visited 2 of the 3 forts did some shopping St.Martin : Took an Island tour(private not ship) still quite a bit of hurricane damage can be seen but beautiful place. Shopped in the port area St.Kitts : Took an island tour again lots of pictures taken just not enough time. Shopped in the port area. I would definitely cruise this itinerary again on Adventure or one of the larger ships Read Less

My wife and I have cruised 12 times on Royal, and this one was very good, but not the best. We had a mini suite and it was wonderful, spacious, and nicely laid out. My wife loves the animal towels and see was not disappointed. We have cruised on Adventure several times and the wear and tear is beginning to show. The Captain and his team were engaging, but the Cruise Director was not one of our favorites. The Food was good, but could have a little more options, especially at dinner. The entertainment was very good, especially the comics and the ice show excellent. The shore excursions were a disappointment especially in St. Martin and the Airport experience, too crowded with hundreds on the beach. St Kits was great and the jeep excursion wonderful. I would give the ports and excursions a 8 out of 10. The getting on the ship was one of the best ever, within 10 minutes of arriving we were on the ship. The getting off was very bad with long lines and broken stairs. A lot of young children were on this ship, but they seemed to be well behaved. Formal Nights are becoming a joke with guys wearing jeans and ladies shorts. We miss the real formal nights. The staffs were efficient. Because we are "Loyal to Royal" we will continue to cruise with them and are members of the Crown and Anchor Program. Read Less

Went with a group of 3 other families. All three families were traveling with children. My husband and I were not. We departed from Ft Lauderdale flying in the day before. Our hotel, the Marriott, had a shuttle to the port the next morning, so we did not rent a car. We took an Uber to dinner. No exploring of Ft Lauderdale since we had no rental car. We were on the Adventure of the Seas in a Junior Suite #1644 on deck 10. We picked this type of room based on the space in the bathroom. Deck 11 had the Windjammer, the buffet option for meals. We did hear some banging from time to time with, but for the most part it did not bother us to much. Embarkation was a little confusing as we had not done this thing in 25 years, but for the most part uneventful. Within minutes of check in the boarding process onto the ship was called. I had no complaints with the ship except for the elevators. Elevators would pass even though the button for up or down was pushed. There were 4 elevators located in the front port side and 4 more front aft side. The back end of the ship the same setup was made. We ended up using the stairs to move through the ship. We used the Windjammer on the first day at lunch time before the room was available at 1pm and for lunch when the Main Dining room was not available. We ate at the Main Dining room for all dinners. The food was fabulous EVERY night as was the service in the Main Dining room. The first excursion was the Stringray City and Snorkeling in the Grand Cayman sponsored by Royal Caribbean. It was a good experience but was crowded. We have been charged for the pictures, but still have not received them. I encourage all of you to pay for items with a charge card so you can call the credit card company to complain if you do not receive what you should have received. I could have done without Costa Maya. We did not have an excursion planned and did not feel comfortable leaving the initial high sale area of the port. Within 45 minutes, we returned to the ship. We paid for a Royal Caribbean sponsored excursion for the Playa Mia Beach Resort in Cozumel. There was an option for an all inclusive with lunch. We only chose the option to go the beach NOT the lunch option. We ordered and paid for lunch which was delicious and still came out cheaper than the lunch option. We were so happy with our experience that we booked a Christmas cruise for Dec 2019 on the Allure of the Seas. We would book another cruise on Adventure of the Seas in a heartbeat. Our decision to change ships was the broadway entertainment offered on the larger ship. My parents will be joining us and wanted the entertainment option. Read Less

This is a very nice and relaxing itinerary. Ft Lauderdale to Labadee, Old San Juan PR, St.Martin and St. Kitts. The Ship: Impressed with how clean it was kept. Maintenance were always polishing and dusting. Newly renovated to accommodate more guests. This is BIG BUSINESS......Constant sales pitches....Leave your RC channel on the TV off. Everywhere you walk, especially on the first day they are strolling the decks trying to upgrade you to anything they possibly can Not pushy. But annoying. We have learned to say no thank you. We booked a Promenade room on deck six. It seemed larger than an inside cabin (did that twice,,,first and last) Only had an issue with noise one time Partiers at 3:30 a.m. on the last night Other than that we enjoyed it. It was actually nice to have the window overlooking all the action. The daily Compass was always packed with something scheduled for a variety of interests. we particularly enjoyed the Trivia games (won twice), comedy show, adult game show and playing mini golf. Did not visit the spa, but the gym was clean and not crowded in the morning. Second level for the pool deck was enjoyable. Service: Our cabin server was fine. Not very personable (Pedru/Pedro) but he always had a bucket of ice for us as requested when I met him on the first day, Dining Room: Thanks to Michael and Sonny.....You two were Amazing! We ate most nights in the dining room mainly because of them.... Chops: Also excellent service. Except we did feel a little rushed. Johnny Rockets: Friendly service Had no problem exchanging my warm fries for fresh hot ones. Windjammer Cafe: It's a cafeteria.......Very few smiles Food: Best meal......Chops Filet and Salmon cooked to perfection. Great side dishes served family style. Excellent Mushroom soup and the Best Key Lime Pie ever... Dining Room: We were very pleased with the selection and quality. Menu changes nightly. Favorite Entrees....Lamb Shank, Salmon and NY Strip. Avoid the Chicken (dry breast portions) Best app. Easy shrimp cocktail and escargo. Soups were good...Best desserts: Decadent chocolate cake and the cheesecake. I also enjoyed the cheese plate. Johnny Rockets: Good cheeseburgers and shakes $10 pp and $6 for a shake Windjammer: Hope you like Curry Promenade Cafe: Good for late night pizza and sandwiches. Good selection of desserts. Coffee is better than windjammer. Overall it was a very good cruise! We are looking forward to our next. Possibly a RCC. Read Less

Cruised with my wife and another couple choosing this cruise because of the 8 nights and ports of call. We are all Diamond members and have cruised exclusively on RCCL. Flew into Ft. Lauderdale the day before and enjoyed our stay at the Embassy Suites. Took a Taxi to the cruise port arriving at 10:45 am and was on the ship by 11:30 am eating lunch. Embarkation was smooth and all the RCCL workers were friendly and helpful. One change is that you do not get your sea pass card until you get to your room at 1 pm. One complaint is the muster drill. I know it is mandatory but our station was directly facing the sun and we were packed in like sardines for 20 minutes in 85 degree heat sweating profusely. Some people could not take it and walked inside to get some air, made me half sick to my stomach. We had a inside cabin on the 7th floor with a window facing the promenade and our room attendant Joel was excellent, keeping our room clean, stocked with ice and answering any questions we had. We ate in the MDR 6 nights and found the food very good. Some nights better than others but overall the selection was diverse. We ate in Chops and had a excellent meal and in Giovannis Table and found the food and service just OK. The Windjammer was very good for Breakfast and Lunch, especially enjoyed the fresh fruit everyday. Enjoyed the Ice Show and comedians and the RCCL singers and dancers were above average compared to some shows I have seen on other ships. One complaint is the Cruise Director was as plastic as you could get. Compared to some of the excellent Cruise Directors we have sailed with in the past he was below average. The Love and Marriage Game could have been better but he was just going through the motions. All 4 felt this way about him whenever he emceed an event. We have a motto that sometimes things are not going to be perfect so we go with the flow and don't let the small things bother you and ruin your vacation. The RCCL employees try hard to please everyone and keep the ship clean as possible in the time they have. I am an early riser and found employees cleaning at 6 am with a smile on there face and a Good Morning when I went for coffee. The pool area on Cruise Days were packed but we were able to find a place in the shade and if we wanted sun we sat on the edge of the pool enjoying the music and atmosphere. Because of the time of the year there were very few children on board. Labadee is a fun day, just a beautiful place to relax. Did not do excursions because we had been to the ports of call San Juan, St. Kitts and St Martin several times but still enjoy shopping at St. Martin and St. Kitts. The Diamond Club is a nice perk but with over 630 members on board RCCL needs to find an alternative to how people were served. The concierge was rude and not helpful and did not make RCCL any friends when asked about the situation. Especially when the serving area is packed in a room that seats an estimated 40 to 50 people. We are planning on cruising again on RCCL with an Hawaii Cruise on the Ovation of the Seas in the fall of 2019. Read Less

Although the weather was not the best, this cruise offered a very interesting and fun itinerary including Canadian, New England and, finally, Florida ports. They did a good job of both embarkation and disembarkation, especially considering the large number of passengers boarding at the small terminal in Quebec City. The ship is in good shape, and qualifies as not too big and not too small. The food and service in the Main Dining Room is the best we’ve had in years—waiters were attentive always and actually did some of the “old fashioned” things like pull out the lady’s chair and spread your cloth napkin! The food and service in the buffet Windjammer also was good, both at lunch and breakfast, with many food choices. There were some very good, original performers in the Lyric Theatre on several nights—unfortunately, the performance times kept changing from night to night and we missed some shows because showtime cut into dinner time. The Schooner Lounge is a good place for the usual sing-along music, and was packed every night. But the ship could definitely upgrade the live music in the lounges, and increase the amount of time the singers and musicians play. Several of the lounges also need improved drink service. Also, there were no enrichment talks related to the interesting ports we visited—we especially missed this since the poor weather precluded everyone from spending very much time on the outside deck so there was little to do. Lastly, our cabin was very good (spacious balcony)—attendants kept everything tip top. Only complaint is that RCCL no longer provides bathrobes. Read Less

We choose this cruise for the northeast ports of call. This was a repositioning cruise from Quebec City to Fort Lauderdale. We booked a Panoramic Oceanview cabin which we just loved. When first booked I tried to check reviews for our cabin on Cruise Critic but was advised there are no staterooms on deck 12. Got a bit worried about that bit of news. The addition of staterooms on deck 12 began last year in dry dock but was cut short due to hurricane. Construction was completed in February of this year. Very large room with ample drawer and closet space. Weather was cold and windy, but that was to be expected because of the time of year. Did not have warm weather until day 11 off the Florida coast. Had most of our meals in Windjammer and this was better than expected for a buffet. I highly recommend the Panorama Oceanview stateroom. I do not know how many more of the RCL ships are being outfitted with these additions but I think it was a great idea. The wall to wall floor to ceiling window gives all the view of a balcony without the heat, cold, wind, rain and smoke. Embarkation in Quebec City was a bit slow and the lines were long, but I would do this cruise again, after doing all of the other cruises I have in my bucket list. Read Less

The staff where OUTSTANDING. My wonderful wife required a little special diet items, the wait staff went out of their way to take care of it on a daily bases( even while serving 3,000 others). Like all our RCCL cruises the food quality was very good. We generally ate breakfast and lunch at the buffet , we loved the many choices available and it was done well. We ate our dinners in the MDR. We had anytime dinning and we were able to sit in the same waiters section each of the 13 nights. We really enjoyed the food but , I must say , doing a 13 day cruise the choices seemed a little repetitious . We enjoyed the layout of the ship, seems very similar to Freedom. The nightly entertainment for us was only so so. Even though we had major faul weather in Canada we really enjoyed the itentery , we’d like to go back agin. Read Less

Our departure city was Beyonne, New Jersey. We flew in the day before and stayed in Elizabeth, NJ where we ate dinner out but then stayed the rest of the night in our hotel room. We Ubered to the port the next day. Even though we went earlier than our assigned time, we were allowed to board. My husband had misplaced his boarding pass but the port staff were great and ran another copy for him. Embarkation went smooth and pretty quick since we had finished all paperwork ahead of time. The ship is a beautiful ship that is in pretty good shape. The rooms are a little bit older.The staff were all wonderful (friendly and helpful) and helped in any way needed. We chose the My Time dining in the Sapphire Room but ended up not going there anymore after the first 2 days. We were told that it would take a couple of hours each meal but decided we didn't want to spend the time on dining. My husband and I were traveling with another couple. The choices in the buffet line's were enormous and, of course, we ate too much (our fault, not the cruise line). Since the weather was cooler, a Fall Foliage Cruise, we were not able to take advantage of any of the outside activities normally offered by the ship so we were limited to the inside ones of which most cost money - quite a bit in my opinion. It was $40 for 3 games of Bingo. For this reason, and the fact that on our normal vacations here and over seas are filled with exploring, I was kind of bored on ship. I credit this to my issues as my husband doesn't play games. We did excursions every day they were offered. I had never been in this part of the country before so I looked forward to them. We did the Acadia National Park and Lobster Bake - the bus tour was uneventful, checking out the town was fun as it was a nice day and the lobster bake was very good; The Best of Portland and Kennebunkport - was an interesting ride as our tour guide was from there and she pointed interesting facts. When we drove through Kennebunkport, we saw a tent set up on the Bush compound and found out later that Barbara Bush was getting married under the tent.; Saint John and Bay of Fundy Top 10 - we had an interesting guide, who dressed in period costume, and filled us with information. We saw and learned a lot.; Top 10 Best of Halifax Tour - we feel this tour was awful because of our guide and the weather - rain. We kidded that we really saw about 1 or 2 of the top 10. Peggy's Cove was rainy and cold with so many buses (meaning so many people) it wasn't enjoyable. Added with the fact that most places were not opened for us as we were starving. Watch out for these excursions and what they do about lunch - sometimes not considered even if tour is during lunch hours. We do thank the cruise ship for crediting us 1/3 of our excursion costs since so many complained (some people even walked back to the ship at one point).; Baddeck Hop On & Off Sightseeing - enjoyable excursion in Baddeck (town). We explored on our own and ate on our own. After Baddeck we had time to explore Sydney, Cape Breton, as well.; The Island's Finest Scenic Drive, Anne and Lobster - our ship docking was late (and we had to leave 2 hours early because of the whale migration which, unfortunately, we saw none) so the schedule with other tours ran together which ended up with too many people at the same place and the same time. We went to Green Gables but did not have time to stand in the long line to get in. Our lobster lunch was delicious and was served in Glasgow by a restaurant owned by a man who was interesting and had a Irish brogue (?). He was so interesting, funny and entertaining. Then we had to go back. Disembarkation went smoothly considering the amount of people and luggage. We Ubered to our hotel as we stayed in Quebec City, Old Town, for a couple of more days. We loved this old town part even though it was cool and rainy. Obviously we arranged all of this part. We also arranged our flight in and home. We have another cruise scheduled, with the same couple, next summer with RC in the Baltic Sea. I'll see then if we enjoy the cruise part better or if we are better off flying in. Read Less

We thoroughly enjoyed the ship, itinerary and shore excursions. Our interior Promenade View cabin was what we expected. Very nice. The service in the dining rooms was very good. What we found disturbing is the food in the Main Dining rooms. Once upon a time customers raved about the inclusive meals. We, among others, found the inclusive meals tasteless. Beef had no flavor and most fish selections were dry. I had sirloin steak one night and prime rib another. Both had absolutely NO TASTE. Now in order to enjoy the food you MUST select the specialty restaurants. We went to Chops and had a fantastic meal. We did enjoy meals in the Windjammer. Windjammer had many selections and the food tasted like food.Disembarking in Qubec was outstanding. They have quite an orderly procedure. Just about everyone needed a taxito the airport. There was no mayhem. People waited online, were directed to an available taxi and were assisted in loading the luggage. Read Less

We were impressed with the condition and décor of the ship. Our rooms were a good size (inside promenade view) Bed was very comfortable. Overall very happy with cabin and the ship. Food was good not great, a bit repetitive every night. We ate in the Giovanni table one night and it was excellent, wish we had went earlier and we would have definitely went back. Our first couple of days breakfast was cold in the Windjammer. Facilities' on board were great however the evening entertainment could have been better. The comedian was good and the singer from the Jersey boys was great shame he was only on one night as he was only singer you could hear every word he was saying. The ice show was ok but we found the RC entertainment team singers and dancers poor compared to previous cruises we have been on. Overall we found cruise to be excellent value for money. We had the All Inclusive package and it was great and also included Starbucks. Read Less

Used RCI before and it was great. Not so much this time around. Beds were extremely uncomfortable. Springs popping up. Hard as a board. Complained twice. They tried to fix the problem but were never able to make it comfortable. Bathroom was very small. Shower was even smaller. Air temperature in the cabin was cooler than we’ve ever had which is a good thing. Food in the buffet was very repetitive. Main dining room food was good. Did the sushi making class. It was a lot of fun. Only problem is you make so much you can’t eat it all. They do not let you take it out of the restaurant so I thought they were wasting too much. Comedians were both very funny. Must do the Quest. So much fun and I was a team captain along with my husband. We lost but had a blast doing it. Overall an ok cruise. Just would have liked to sleep better. Read Less

I hope this report is as helpful to those heading to New England & Canada as other reports were for us preparing for our cruise. This was our 5th cruise all with RCL and the first time on Adventure of the Seas. Liberty is our favorite ship. Overall we had a very nice time. What attracted us to this ship was its itinerary. We had wanted to do the NE/Canada itinerary for some time. We flew to Newark airport and took an Uber to the port. It was hands-down the smoothest boarding we have every had. We had a balcony cabin on the bump out of deck 9. The location was great, not too far from the elevators yet very quiet. Two of the elevators near our cabin were out of service frustrating many passengers. We opted to take the stairs most of the time. Once onboard we checked out our cabin and then went to the Windjammer for lunch. After lunch and back to our cabin our luggage had arrived. We unpacked and then went up to the top deck as we sailed out of the harbor. You don’t pass the Statue of Liberty when you leave out of Cape Liberty but you can see it in the distance. It was very windy as we set sail. We chose my time dining. We tried to call to make reservations but so was everyone else apparently. We decided to walk down and see if we could make them. The best time we could get was 7:30. A little later than we had hoped but better than waiting in the long line with the others that did not make reservations. The third-floor my time dining room seemed to confuse a lot of people. There was one desk to the left as you approach the dining room where you would go if you did not have reservations and then two desks past that one on either side of the entrance to the dining room for reservations. No one seemed to want to go to the left despite the sign that clearly read reservations both sides. It was a long line on the right hand side and hardly anyone on the left. More than once we walked past that long line to the desk on the left side. We had asked for a table for two most nights. One night we sat at an odd table placed in a doorway right next to the servers staging/cleaning area. Our waiters didn’t have any of the tables around us. It appeared to us that this table was an add on and not a usual table. Needless to say we didn’t get very good service that night. When asked by our head server how everything was I felt compelled to tell him that this was not a very good table. He offered to move us but by then we had already had our appetizers and didn’t want to move. He took note of our displeasure so we weren’t seated there again. Our ports on this cruise were Portland, Bar Harbor, St. John New Brunswick and Halifax. We booked our excursions on our own, independent of the cruise line. We prefer doing things on our own so as to have flexibility. We arrived in Portland early Sunday morning. We were in Portland a few years ago so we had already been to Kennebunkport and to the Portlandhead lighthouse. Once off the ship we walked to a nearby church for mass and then headed over to the Holy Donut. If you go there, don’t let the long line around the corner deter you, it moves fast. The donuts made from potatoes were very good and worth the wait. We had 1pm reservations on a small lobster boat with just 10 other people. The company, Lucky Catch is close to the port. We had a great tour with them. We learned a lot about trapping lobsters. Everyone on the boat had a chance to participate baiting the traps and pushing them in. We learned the difference from male and female lobsters and got to band the ones big enough to keep. At the end of our 90 minute tour we got to purchase the lobsters big enough to keep for just $7 each. You then walk them next door to the Portland Lobster Company where they cook them and serve them with lunch for $12. It was a lot of fun and interesting. The beautiful weather added to the fun time that we had. Next port was Bar Harbor. This was a tender port. If you didn’t have a ship excursion booked you needed to be off the boat before 9 am or else wait for those with booked excursions to get off. They were using large whale watch boats to tender so it went fast. We were on the first boat to tender in. Here we had booked bikes to ride through Acadia. We aren’t big bikers so we opted for the Pedego electric bikes. This was so much fun. You can pedal as much as you want or push the pedal assist when you get tired. The bikes also have a throttle that makes going up hills very easy. The bikes can go up to 20 miles per hour if you want. The owner of the shop gave us great directions to the park loop road. There was some traffic before we got to the park that can be a little nerve wracking but once on the park loop road the traffic is one way and two lanes making it easy for cars to get around you. We stopped at Jordan Pond restaurant in the park for an early lunch before heading back. We hoped to ride up Cadillac Mt but didn’t have enough time as we had only rented the bikes for 4 hours. Back in town we stopped for a drink at an Irish pub near the port. We then walked up and down the main street checking out the shops and ended the late afternoon having a bite to eat on the patio at the Bar Harbor Inn where you get an amazing view of the harbor. I could have sat there all day. The next day we arrived in St John New Brunswick. This was the only port we didn’t make any pre arrangements. It was going to be a short stop. We had to be back on the ship by 2:30. Many people were going to see the reversing falls but everything I had read said you either needed to be there right at the right time or go there twice in the day to see the water going in a different direction. Neither appealed to us. We decided to head over to the museum to learn about St. John. We walked along the walkway near the water and stopped at a craft show that was set up. I purchased a few pairs of unique earrings made of crushed lobster shells for gifts. What we learned at the museum was that St. John was once a vibrant ship yard where many vessels were built. The museum houses many ship artifacts. After the museum we headed over to the farmers market. Where we live we have an amazing farmers market so this wasn’t very impressive to us, but none the less I’m glad we went. From there we decided to start checking out the neighborhood pubs. This is something we like to do when we visit new cities. Our first stop was to the Cask & Kettle. We sat at the bar and had a pint and talked with the bartender. From there we walked around the corner and up the hill to the Big Tide brewery. Here we had some delicious sweet potato poutine with our drinks before taking a slow walk back to the ship. Our last port was Halifax. It was here that we planned to rent a car and drive out to Peggy’s Cove. We hadn’t made reservations and didn’t think it would be an issue. The closet car rental to the port was Hertz and they didn’t have any cars left. They pointed us in the direction of Budget about a 15 minute walk from the port. Luckily they had a car. For about $42 US dollars we rented a Toyota RAV4 for the day. We set our google maps for Peggy’s Cove and were off. What a beautiful drive and area. Once there we parked at the Information Center and walked out to the light house. It was so scenic. This is what you imagine Nova Scotia to look like. The colorful houses reflecting in the water and the large rocks leading out to the lighthouse. There were quite a few tour buses parked behind the main gift shop when we arrived. They had pulled away before we left so we had a few minutes without the large crowds. I bought a latte just inside the gift shop that tasted great. We grabbed a few souvenirs and then decided to share a lobster roll from a stand on our way to the car. We headed back to Halifax and decided to stop at the Fairview Lawn Cemetery where many of those who lost their lives on the titanic are buried. This stop and Peggy’s are cruise excursions for those that rather go that route. We saw some of the people from the ship on tours at them both. As we approached the graves you could hear the tour guides commentary. It was very moving to see these graves, some with names while others with just numbers. From here we returned the car before headed over to the museum. We are not normally museum people and this was the second one on this cruise. The titanic exhibit was the highlight. We both agreed the cemetery was more interesting. We left there and headed back towards the ship along the boardwalk. With time to kill we stopped at the Garrison brewery close to the cruise port for a pint. You have to walk through a large market at the port to get to the ship, giving you one last chance to grab some souvenirs. Our last full day was at sea. Observations about this cruise...you would definitely say the crowd on the ship was as “older” crowd. We never used the pool or hot tub but saw others that did. It never seemed hot enough to us. The highs were very pleasant, in the 70’s most days. We spent many nights in the Duck & Dog pub listening to Carlo. He had quite a following. He is a guitar player from the Philippines that sings many songs that the crowd sings along to. He had quite the following on our cruise. The balcony on this ship is not as large or as open as those on Liberty. The room are about the same. We used the gym both days at sea. The food on the ship was just okay, nothing memorable, good or bad. Our room steward was very attentive. There were very few people out on the deck at night but it was windy most nights. RCL seems to be cutting back on some of their services. Free room service is limited to a continental breakfast. Anything else will cost you. At the bar if you don’t request a certain alcohol you will be given top shelf and pay a lot more for a mixed drink. Being able to upload your photo and fill out your documents online makes for a quicker boarding. If you have never been on a cruise you will enjoy the Adventurer. We had a good time and don’t sweat the small stuff, (like elevators being out). Others seemed very annoyed. This being said, I would likely not recommend this ship to others who have been on a higher class ship solely based on the food and the balcony, two things that we look forward to on ships. Read Less

This was our 7th cruise with RC and as always we did enjoy our cruise and have booked our 8th cruise... however these are things we did not enjoy... Dining Room service that felt like the crew didn't have a clue and never had done this before! Always pushing you on your scores for the survey..always reminding you of their names so that you could drop their names on the survey. Total mix up the first night with our reservation. We were suppose to eat with our friends (which had been pre-arranged!) and they gave our table to a man who screamed louder than we did.. They were a party of two at a table for four!! He was still screaming at the head waiter when we were finally seated some 20 minutes later. And why do we have formal night and they let people wear jean shorts ???? What happened to the “washy washy guy”? (the employee who reminded EVERYONE to wash their hands) You install wonderful fancy sinks as you enter the windjammer and NO one was using them!! The “washy washy guy needs his job back! The food is the same ...every cruise.. I realize you are serving over 4000 people but it was like being at home with the same menu every week. Overall the food is good but boring and repeated again and again. It was my husbands 65th birthday and our friends had arranged with our waiter for a cake...the waiter forgot that day of his birthday but remembered the next night... too little too late!! The only exceptional meal we had was at Chops Grill where we had a lovely lunch served by Luis..A++++ Your meteorologist is seriously overworked because he didn't have any of our forecast right... In Bar Harbor, we dressed for his/her forecasted 57 degrees and it was more like 87... In addition to the meteorologist being overworked your ENTIRE staff looks tired and overworked.. New uniforms would make a huge difference and put a spring in their step.. Standouts were our room steward , Richard, our waiter Luis in Chops Grill, Paul at Starbucks and my husband attended a very good lecture in the fitness center. The itinerary was great on this cruise..our weather was perfect and all in all we did have a nice cruise..Just little disappointments again along the way that would make a HUGE difference if they were corrected..
