I throughly enjoyed our cruise and would recommend this ship and a Canadian/New England cruise. Foremost, the crew was amazing, especially our main dining room staff and state room attendants. I appreciate the hard work, attentiveness and kindness. They provided the personal touches that made the experience special. The food was excellent (especially in the main dining room, most hit or miss in the wind jammer), the amenities were good (pools, flowrider, perfect storm slides, ice skating), the entertainment we saw was very good (especially the ice show and lounge entertainment). The experience was everything I was looking for, being: pampered, indulged, wowed, entertained. Background: Our group of 10 included four kids (4-9 years old), four adults in the their 40’s and two seniors in their 70’s. None of us had been on a cruise in the last 10 years. We were celebrating a 50th anniversary and looking for lots of family time, interesting ports and food choices that would accommodate various eating preferences. Embarkation: Half of our group flew into Newark the day before embarkation and stayed at the Country Inn & Suites near the airport. They had good reports about the hotel and it provided a shuttle from the airport to the hotel (but not to the cruise terminal). They took an Uber to the cruise terminal in the morning. Two of our group took an Amtrak to Newark the morning of the cruise and took an Uber to the terminal. My group drove to the terminal and parked their. Parking was $140 for the cruise and we got covered parking in the structure. The parking area is right next to the embarkation area, maybe a five minute walk. Embarkation was easy, if a bit chaotic with the different lines (screening, check-in). We arrived quite a bit earlier (2 hours) than our scheduled check-in time and there was no problem getting on early. Stateroom: We had five interior staterooms on deck 6. The rooms were small, but not as small as we feared. The furniture, rugs, cabinets etc were in pretty good shape, but not as good condition as the public spaces. We were very pleased with our choice of an interior room. The darkness helped with sleep and relaxation. The rooms were overall very quiet, but there was some early morning noises of carts rolling coming from service decks below. Deck 6 seemed like a good location: close to the Royal promenade and dining room. Our stateroom attendants were excellent, hard working, friendly and engaging with the kids. Thanks Suseno and Renalto! Dining: Dinner: We had all our dinners in the Sapphire main dining room. We were happy with our choice to eat there over the Windjammer. None of us tried the specialty dining options. The food ranged from good to excellent. We took our server’s recommendations and were pleased. The excellent dishes were: lamb chops, escargot, burrata, beet and greens salad, prime rib, lobster tail (yes, there was lobster night), crab cake. The desserts were also very good, especially the cheese cake, molten chocolate cake, warm cookie with ice cream, creme brulee. The dinner service was great. Our server, Seddely, learned our preferences and had food ready for the kids when we arrived. He pampered us with extra servings without asking. The head waiter, Nikolai, arranged for special food for a gluten free member of our group and had a special cake ordered for the celebration of the 50th anniversary we were taking the cruise to celebrate. The extraordinary thing the dinner service did was expand the size of our table. We had ten people at a table that would comfortably sit eight. We had been on the waiting list for the early seating, so I was happy to be there at all. The dining room staff noticed we didn’t have a lot of room and on the third day they had a carpenter on the ship cut a piece of plywood to fit on top of our table to give us more room. It was truly exceptional and kind service. I had mixed feelings about the early, 5:30pm, seating. It worked with the kid’s schedules, but we missed the sights as we left three of the four ports at 5:30pm. We could’ve switched to the Windjammer those nights, but I did enjoy the main dining room. Lunches: We tried the windjammer and main dining room. The main dining room had its usual excellent service and entree choices not available at the windjammer. There was a flourless chocolate cake with rsaperiees at the main dining room that I only saw at the first at-sea day that was extraordinary. I guess I don’t have much to say about the lunches, they were not a food highlight. Breakfast: we tried the Windjammer, main dining room and room service (free options only) for breakfast. All three had similar options, but the main dining room had an a la carte menu in addition to a buffet. Regardless of the venue, I thought the variety of croissants were the best pastry items. The omelet station in the windjammer had the freshest food which was a nice change. Activities: The highlights were the more active amenities: Flowrider, perfect storm water slides, rock climbing, ice skating. The staff at the water sports and the rock climbing stood out as being really supportive, there was a very positive feeling. The 7 and 9 year olds were tall enough for the water slide (48” min., I believe), but only the 9 year old was tall enough for the Flowrider (52” to boogie board). I rode the water slide a few times and it was pretty thrilling. The lines were moderate on our cruise, but I could see them being quite long on caribbean cruises with warmer weather. Ice skating was fun and it was cool that the skaters from the ice show handled the logistics of the open skate sessions so you could see them off the ice. Entertainment: We didn’t go to too many of the entertainment events, but what we saw was very good. The ice show was amazing, not to be missed. The show was very creative and the skaters very skilled, especially for such a small space. I was impressed that they had 10 skaters! Our cruise was over July 4th. There was a balloon drop on the Royal promenade in the evening and a very good rendition of the US national anthem by one of the professional singers. It was cool to see the prep in the morning, quite a production. I saw the big band perform a few times which was quite good. Kids: The kids loved the boat, especially the food :) We didn’t use the onboard child care, so I can’t say anything about that. Summary: A very well run cruise. I would recommend this cruise line, ship and itinerary to others. Read Less

We had a lot of fun on Adventure of the Seas. This ship had a little bit of everything and if you got bored, it was your own damn fault (I heard one couple complain at dinner that there wasn't a great selection of pay per view movies!! Who has time to watch movies on a cruise?). We enjoyed all of the late night shows; the Quest was a lot of fun, the comedians were funny, and the ice show was pretty. The best entertainment night was the Elton John tribute show (that guy was awesome). Also, the disco party is always a favorite of ours, especially when the guys dressed like the Village People come down to dance with the audience. There were so many things to do every day: trivia, mini golf, ping pong, shuffleboard, ice skating, and even the Flow Rider, which is simulated surfing. It's ALL fun. We went on several excursions. The best one was in Portland, Maine, when we boarded an old schooner and took a sail around the bay. Sure, in the Caribbean, they would've handed us rum punch, but I guess I can't count on that in 57-degree Maine. We also too, a bus to the Portland Head Light. There were vendors set up right outside the ship and we were able to buy a bunch of handmade souvenirs that were pretty nice. In Bar Harbor, we went on a bus trip to Acadia National Park and a lobster bake, which was a HIT with the folks on our cruise: we had 3 tour buses full of folks doing this. Okay, the bus trip was ridiculous--our guide kept saying, "this is a good spot to take photos! The view is amazing--but we're not going to stop here, so just look out your window. On the left. There it goes!" He did this several times. We stopped exactly twice to take photos at some kind of little bridge thing that was important in some way and another time at a bathroom, for r old folks who I guess couldn't hold it (nothing to see at that stop). I didn't really see Acadia Narional Park except for the glances of things as we rolled by. We saw other tour buses stopping and people getting out, but we whizzed right on by everyone. That was disappointing. But the meal was pretty amazing and my mom said it made up for the crappy "tour". Everyone got a whole lobster, a half an ear of corn, and 3 new potatoes (red potatoes). There were many very happy lobster-eating folks! In the Canadian ports, we did hop on-hop off bus tours around the cities, which were blah. No air conditioning. I guess they don't need it that far north usually, but the day we were in Halifax, it was 93 degrees and we were melting on that double decker bus. I'm not sure why we paid over $50 per person to do those, but they have us some interesting history lessons about the cities, I guess. My only complaint on this whole cruise was with the Internet. We prepaid for the Internet package a few months beforehand. It was over $100 for the week and sadly, was unreliable and SLOW. VERY SLOW. So slow, in fact, that we weren't able to FaceTime with family (we have a family member who was undergoing chemo and wanted to check on him, but were unable to do so because of our unreliable connection). I think the Internet package is touted as being "the fastest at sea" or something to that effect. Really, I'd like the proof on that one. It was hard to load email when I needed to check in a few times during that week. Read Less

My wife and I got a great deal on this cruise. We have always stayed away from the NY/NJ/Balt to Bahamas / Port Canaveral itinerary. We just thought it was a blah itinerary. We were wrong. We met friends in Port Canaveral and had a great time. Coco Cay was simple and perfect. The trip to Cabbage Beach in Nassau is a favorite or ours. Three fun stops and some great days at sea. We've been on big ships and small ships and the Adventure OTS was right in the middle. It was easy to navigate and not Oasis long. We had a 6th floor forward balcony. The location was perfect. A simple walk down a flight of stairs to the Promenade, casino and theater. The staff was great. The food was good and plentiful. The comedians were very good. The stage shows were ok. The ice show was very good. Overall we had a great time on the ship. We spent most of the days in the Solarium since we didn't bring the kids. It was peaceful and just what we needed. Were there kids on board? Yes. Did doors slam? Yes. Could the food in the Windjammer be better? Yes. We still found a way to enjoy ourselves. We found that the buffet items in the main dining room for breakfast and lunch were better than the Windjammer. It was also easier to find a seat and get good service. We got great value from the alcohol and non-alcohol drink packages. The internet worked well. The Flow Rider is great. The shop's prices were reasonable. Embarkation and Disembarkation were simple. Port Bayonne was easy to get into and out of. Overall, I'd take the Adventure and this itinerary any time and would be guaranteed a great time. Read Less

We had a great time on the cruise. We were with a big family group. We stayed in the suites, they were roomy and comfortable. Renato, our attendance at the room was very friendly and always making sure we were taken care of. The suite lounge was awesome, they had complementary cocktail hour in the afternoons and always snacks and coffee. Having the suite was definitely a perk, since you get to disembark the ship sooner for the excursions. Our service at the Saphire Dining Room was wonderful. The food was delicious and they always took the time to detail its presentation. Our servers Roberto and Rodolfo were amazing. They felt like part of our family, they were always on top of all our needs and very accommodating. It was also very nice to see that most everybody in the ship dressed up at the Dining Room for the formal nights. Overall it was a great cruise for our family, we will try to cruise again. Read Less

I chose this cruise to celebrate my honeymoon and it was a beautiful experience. It was worth every penny. Not only was the staff super nice but the Captain made sure to acknowledge our union. Out stateroom attendant was excellent as he was always what seem like available to help at any time. Our main dining experience was impeccable. We where so excited to eat there every night. Our servers was kind and willing to make sure we had a good dining experience every night. One of our servers would do little tricks for our table and always remembered our names. They where really thorough it made me like they really cared about our dining experience. Overall, I can not describe the beautiful experience I had. This will forever be the best thing i have done. Not sure, if I can afford another cruise so this will forever be embedded as my favorite trip. Thank you Royal Carribean for making my honeymoon memorable. Read Less

We traveled aboard the Addventure of the Seas with a party of sixteen, ranging in age from 6 to 72. Each person was extremely satisfied with their personal experience. We arrived within our scheduked boarding time and did not experience a line. I personally found time to relax, explore the ship, bask in the sun and engage in conversations with fellow travelers. The shows were very good but I would have enjoyed more variety, shows that would have gotten me on my feet preferably shows from the Motown and American Bandstand era. Our Jr. Suite was roomy and well maintained. The stateroom attendant was excellent never intrusive, always on point and performed his tasks around our schedule. Although the formal dining room provided excellant service with a variety of food, the WindJammer was our favorite. Most of our group visited on a regular basis and each time found a great variety of food that suited our taste perfectly. Unfortunately, we did not take advantage of scheduling our cruise while on baord. However, our little travel group is in the process of deciding our next destination. We are 99% sure it will be aboard a Royal Caribbean ship. Read Less

Overall I had a lovely time spending time on Royal Caribbean. The only thing I didn’t agree with is you have to pay for bottled water an the other cruise I have been on they made sure to keep you hydrated with bottled water regardless but I had amazing time.

We sailed with myself, my husband and our 16 year old son. The main reason for this choice was leaving out of NY as I do not like to fly. Embarkation was easy and fast. We were on the ship in less than 30 min. Overall the boat was wonderful. You can be as busy or as lazy all day as you want. Plenty of activities for all ages. Our room stewert, Randy, made our trip most enjoyable. He was top notch! The food was very good and you have a lot of choices. The windjammer café can get very crowded but keep in mind you are sailing with almost 4000 guests! Also on sea days the pools are very crowded. Dinner everynite was very good. Different menu changed daily, and gave you plenty of choices. We enjoyed our ports of call. Cocoa beach, cocoa cay, and Nassau were beautiful. I do not really have anything to complain about here. The whole experience was enjoyable that the ships crew members go above and beyond to make your trip the best Adventure at Sea!! On to our next Royal Carribean cruise! Read Less

I love cursing with Royal Caribbean! Plenty to do for all ages, food is fantastic and I love the pools, hot tubs and water slides. The shows are wonderful, staff very accommodating and it's hard to resist such great tasting food. Online check-in makes everything run smoothly and no long waiting in lines upon returning. My luggage was there at port waiting and customs were a breeze. The captain and his staff all came out for the farewell show on our last night and shook everyone's hand as we were leaving. My cabin with balcony was the perfect place for reading my book, tanning, enjoying the sights at ports and just watching the moon and listening to the waves at night. I looked forward to each day and choosing the activities/shows I wanted to see and participate in. Our dinner waiters were the best and took great care of us. We couldn't have asked for a better cabin steward! Last year the same week we returned this years cruise was booked. Ready to plan my 2019 cruise now. Read Less

This is our 6th RC week long Caribbean cruise with our kids, including my son's girlfriend. My husband has become more disabled so we rented the scooter this time - he can walk a few steps with his cane - and my son ended up using my husband's wheelchair due to injuring his foot just before our trip. The crew were terrific about accommodating us, never making us feel like a burden. My husband was able to get everywhere we wanted on the ship with that scooter, including down to the observation deck (crew was super nice about working the little elevator thing for him) so we could watch our daughter on the flowrider. I missed the big musicals we've seen on Freedom and the Oasis class ships, but the guest musicians I saw (Love) were terrific. The crew's Vegas show was appropriately cheesy - but my daughter informs me it was no worse, and a bit better - than the show she saw on a Princess cruise. We enjoy the pools on shore days, as we've been there before. Again, the staff is always the best - everyone is kind - and so are fellow passengers about letting him and his scooter onto those precious elevators! We had a great time hanging with the grown kiddos. Unfortunately, I can only compare to the other Freedom class ships and Oasis. I took a Carnival weekend cruise to Tijuana many moons ago... This ship is their oldest and while it was very clean, the age showed up - like on the balcony (we had a handicap room - lots of room for the scooter and wheelchair) where you could see rust under paint. They've updated - carpeting was brand new - and like I said, very clean. Those mattresses are hard though some people probably like that. Read Less

We chose this particular cruise based on what was available on the ship verses the price of the cruise. WE LOVE the Adventure of the Seas!!! Seriously, the absolute best ship. My children had a very good time, and so did the adults. My youngest son is 5 and has autism. He was well cared for by the Adventure Ocean club, and each time he had a blast!! He came back dressed as a pirate one night and superman another night, complete with face paint :) There is a splash pad for very young kiddos and primary aged kids as well and my guy loved them both. FYI, there is an organization called Autism at Sea on board this ship that will assist both kids and adults with autism. They offer assistance during excursions and respite for families. I did not find them until the last day of our cruise, next time we will make the connection! My 11 year old was even entertained the entire time. The science and the games were his favorite part of the club. They had a couple of free hours for the arcade games as well which sure was generous, thank you RC!! My 15 year old loved her club. They had a lot to do, well organized and a controlled environment so it could be fun for all. Lots of games, meet and greets, super fun competitions and even a prom :) My 18 year old took the daily itinerary and planned his day. There were lots of sports competitions (volley ball, soccer, and dodge ball). He loved the Broadway style shows, the ice skating shows and Izumi sushi class.The flow rider was a bit of a disappointment. The lines were crazy and the time you actually got on it was very short. It is a big hit, so best advice from my kiddo is get there early. It is not running when the ship is docked either (bummer). We actually missed out on the game shows, there is just so much to do! They played them on the TV later on, hilarious!! Definitely a MUST do the next time. The ice show was the family favorite, followed by the Broadway show and then the dancers. The movies they played on the ship were current. The food was amazing. Main dining room, nothing to improve on. They have perfection down pat. Ice skating was a blast as well. We do not drink alcohol, but still love the pina colada virgins :) The price was very low, only 4.50$ for a drink! Another cruise line was triple that. I will not sail with another cruise line again. This is the first cruise where I did not feel nickle and dimed. We took 2 shore excursions, the jet skis at Coco Cay (OK) and the Seahorse and Snorkel on Nassau (I highly recommend this one). Book ahead for shore excursions! Seriously, like as soon as you can. The discounts are worth it and the choices get limited long before sailing. We did not get the towel animals until the last 2 days? Not sure why, those are always so much fun. Read Less

The embarkation and disembarkation was easy and smooth out of New Jersey. The cafe Promenade would be better if they have more hot food available like hot soups, hot panini, or a salad bar for lunch. Dining in the MDR was slow the first two nights even though we signed up for the My Family dining time. the New menu for the MDR dinner were great! Waiter finally realize we don't like to sit and wait because we skip dessert one night. The rest of the week, we were done dinner within 1 hour. Cookie Monster, Elsa, Cupcake, Little Bee Betty, Crazy Lady, and Jungle Jorge in ADVenture ocean were awesome! Entertainment in the centrum was ok, similar to other ships. Lots of activities for the family to do= ice skating, rock climbing, water slides, pool. We wish the ice cream bar is open after 9pm ( 11am-9pm) we enjoy late night ice cream after the shows and such. Time for water slides to be opened was limited on port days. IT should be opened all day. Read Less

This was our third time on the "Adventure of the Seas" and it didn't disappoint us. In fact, it has undergone a fabulous facelift. This ship now features a new sushi restaurant, upscaled shops, refurbished junior suites/rooms, and much more. Tis was the first time we have sailed an itinerary that schedule two consecutive days at sea on the return. We were concerned initially that the deck, dining areas, and facilities would be overcrowded. We were pleasantly surprised and everything was literally smooth sailing both days at sea. There were plenty of activities on board to keep us occupied and other passengers, too. Coco Cay was a new stop for us and proved to be very nice snorkeling and parasailing options. The Bahamas is always a good time! Food is always excellent in main dining area. Attentive, friendly, and professional crew and staff is always the normal. We have yet to be disappointed and are ALWAYS treated as ROYAL!. See you in January, 2019 on a newer ship! Read Less

Nice price and port a lot closer to home than Florida. Cruise director and manager were entertaining. The wait staff in the Main dining room were wonderful! The promenade was very unique and the Quest was hilarious!! Getting on and off the ship at ports was very easy. Plenty of seating in the windjammer. My state room was always kept clean as were the public restrooms. The pools were not over chemicaled like on other ships. Embarking and disembarking was very smooth. CocoCay’s Beach was a highlight. The water was warm, clear and there was ample snorkeling just on the beach. Our Nassau port excursion was a bust because of storms but the guest services staff gave us a partial reimbursement. I have been to Cocoa Beach several times, but we still had a great time. It’s always a great day on the beach at the ocean. I would book this cruise again. Read Less

Ship was well kept. Food in dining room was great. Plenty of activities for adults on cruise days. Cococay needs more shelters to block the rain. There was a teen area. Limited times for activities like flowrider, rock climbing, basketball court (balls collected at 10 PM), pools & hot tubs even closed early. 16 to 20 yr olds need more activities. Arcade had several games out of order. Entertainment was wonderful. Many excursions were sold out. Most of the staff was very friendly and helpful. Ice cream/frozen yougurt machine only in one area and only one side opened, so lines at times were long, and it closed early too. The comedians were funny & it was nice that they both had “an adult only” sessions later in the evening as well. The large interactive signs were very helpful to locate rooms, activities and menus.

This is our first cruise and we chose the Adventure of the Seas because it is close to home and we have always wanted to visit the ports that are visited by this cruise. We had a wonderful experience on this cruise with respect to their dining room services and their excellent foods. The dining room services are very good and its staff are very professional and attentive to our needs. Their cabin service personnel are also very friendly and efficient and provided excellent services. There are a variety of entertainment on board for various ages, and we really like their song and dance shows, their comedies, and its promenade. We found the cruise is well managed, planned, organized and executed. The embarkation and disembarkation process were very efficient and smooth. There were various off shore excursions available for the ports visited, but we didn't participate in these excursions, although we heard that they were excellent. Being independent minded, we did explore the cities on our own and found them to be interesting. The allowed times onshore were sufficient for visiting some of the interesting sites in these cities. We highly recommend this cruise, especially in the fall for the foliage. Read Less

My wife and I along with four friends and spouses went on the Royal Caribbean Adventure of the Sea New England/Canada seven day cruise. Our experience was great. Both the embarkment and disembarkment went extremely smooth. Our cabin was very satisfactory in size and the bed was exceptionally comfortable, to our surprise. Dining was great! Every meal was an experience in itself. Food was hot and delicious and more dessert selections than you can possibly enjoy even in 7 days. We enjoyed learning the history of each port and the shore excursions were will worth the money. Halifax Nova Scotia and Peggy's Cove may very well be the most interesting and neat place I have ever been to. The tour guide did a great job in telling us the history of Halifax and Peggy's Cove. Royal Caribbean definitely does it right and the dining staff and management take the time to constantly make sure you are happy throughout the cruise. Read Less

We are originally from the northeast and wanted them to see New York Harbor, The Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island , The Verrazano Bridge and the New York Skyline where we came to this country and we grew up. We flew in a day early and stayed in Newark, NJ and had what we call "New York Pizza". We took a Lyft to Port Liberty and had a smooth boarding process. We had a two bedroom grand suite in the rear of the ship for the six of us. Nothing super special but well laid out and very comfortable. Much larger then a standard balcony stateroom. Meals, Entertainment and service where top notch. We did not take any excursions but rather went out in our group of six. If the weather was not so cold it would have been A+ but with cold and rain I will say it was a B rating. In Halifax we went to the Citadel where everybody had a great time. Highly recommend it... On the ship the kids learned how to ice skate and enjoyed the activities and shows the ship had for them. I have tried to sail Canada twice and froze both times. I will think twice before I go again only because of the weather. Read Less

Adventure Of The Seas, is a beautiful ship. As residents of NY City, cruising from the NY/NJ area is very convinient to us. We have cruised other lines, but we love Royal Caribbean, therfore, Anthem of the Seas, is this ship we Cruise more. So when Royal Caribbean, brings over other ships we book them for variety. This time I loved the idea of cruising with Adventure again. Also the itinerary was very inciting for the change, and variety of ports of call. Embarkation and disembarkation is the easiest, simplest and fastest, that I ever experienced. I think Cape Liberty port, is the best port to sail from. We had a hump cabin, and enjoyed the balcony immensely, specially on days at sea when the Windjammer gets really busy. We picked up our food, and brought it to enjoy it in the balcony. The Cabin itself, was spacious and clean. Very comfortable. Entertainment, as always, Royal Caribbean did not disappoint us. A lot of fun on this ship. The cruise director and the RC entertainment staff were outstanding, not a dull moment onboard. We enjoyed a lot, the ice skating show, as well as the production, comedy and movies. Food overall is good. We have had better. Food in the Windjammer I found it very repetitive, meaning, almost every day the same thing for lunch and breakfast. The staff is outstanding, literally, everybody makes it, their business, to make sure you are happy. The Boomer part of it is, as a diamond plus member, the Diamond Club, is a very small area. It was always over crowded, it used to be that Diamond Plus and Pinnacle members had access to the suite Lounge. Not anymore, so the place feels very crowded and suffocating. We avoided it entirely but we couldn't help but feel kind of cheated. That is one of the highlights of our vacation. We counted Cruise point after cruise point until we reached this milestone, we want to enjoy the benefits... Read Less

A Friend found the trip and asked several people to go. There were 13 of us cruising together.. I thoroughly enjoyed the time cruising the North Atlantic and visiting the ports and shore excursions. I found the excursions fun and educational. The service and dining was excellent. The food for the most part was excellent. I can't say enough about all the ship's staff. They were always courteous and helpful..The entertainment was delightful and very entertaining. I found that the embarkation and disembarkation were extremely efficient and well organized..I would definitely cruise with Royal Caribbean again. Although I would have preferred the weather to be a bit warmer so that I would have enjoyed the pools and hot tubs. Although the weather did not cause me to not go ashore and participate in the shore excursions. The only shore excursion that was cold and windy was the Marine Wildlife. We all had hopes of seeing whales and other marine wildlife. We did not see whales but we did see dolphins and otters. Read Less

We sailed on Adventure of the Seas, Royal Carribean. We had never been to Coco cay or Bahamas before. We were disappointed that still didn't see Coco cay due to weather.We had an ocean view balcony room . Room attendant does an excellent job keeping room clean and orderly. Cruise director Chris Brown and activities manager Magic Marvin were excellant. Provided plenty of activities and entertainment., always friendly and courteous and entertaining. Love the morning show. Had a great time at the 70s parade on the Promenade and the Caribbean dance party.The crew that assists with the activities are friendly and were a lot of fun. Love the game shows provided, especially Love and Marriage and The Quest. A lot of fun and laughter. So even though the weather was bad we had a great time.We went to Nassau, Bahamas and did the Discovery Atlantis tour. The tour was informative and loved seeing below the ocean, but don't think would of been enough time to do other activities even if we paid the extra fees. One day there is not enough time. Overall Royal Caribbean has a way of providing a great time even when ports are missed.We will always cruise Royal Carribean. Read Less

Well kept ship, very clean. Great entertainment options. The ice show should not be missed. Would have like to have seen a Broadway type musical but the singers and dancers put on 2 wonderful shows. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Late night food choices were limited; Pizza or cold sandwiches @ promenade cafe. The boarding process was simple and quick. Our room was ready and luggage was delivered quite quickly. Disembarking was impressive. We chose to self check out and carried our own luggage but even those who didnt take that route were able to exit just as quickly. I would definitely reccomend royal Caribbean. Great value for the cost. Shore excursions are a but pricy but I would still recommend booking with the ship as some folks had their jet ski activity cancelled due to rough waters and received a full refund. That's a plus as you never know the weather. Read Less

Waiter Birendra, assistant waiter Jay, and head waiter Noel were outstanding in their very accommodating service to our vegetarian eating style! The main dining room was our choice for dinner every night because of the excellent service provided. Nicholas was very kind in house keeping and went out of his way to make sure everything was just how we asked! Anytime I had asked for a picture to be taken the staff were always happy to snap family pictures and made sure we were happy with the picture before taking off to complete any duties assigned to. The pool or hot tub did give my child a rash all over that was said to be painful and irritating- still not sure if it was from the hot tub or pool but this stopped play time in the pool or hot tub the last two nights :(. Besides that I would have liked to arrive in Nassau earlier and have stayed overnight for no restrictions on returning times- there is so much to do and not enough time at this stop. The food was amazing in Windjammers but would have liked more vegetarian options. Also, the pool played vines all day but we would have liked music videos of pop hits or kid friendly movies and better choice of movies at night. Lastly, I did not enjoy the taste of the alcoholic beverages-tasted funny and the one bartender was not very accommodating when I did not like my drink. Other then those 5 opportunities for improvement I was very satisfied with this ship and cruise line and 100% satisfied with the main dining room staff of Birendra, Jay, and Noel!!! Read Less

We had Alicia and Minguel as our waiters in the main dining room and i couldn’t think of any two better people. They made the cruise much more enjoyable and we built a relationship that was sad to let go of. The ship was amazing. I do wish they had more stores but i could do without. The shows were hilarious and great as well. The activities director Magic Marvin and Chris were great to watch and get to know. There was also a parade the last cruising day so that was enjoyable as well. We were barely in our rooms and had a great time. Lots to do and lots of naps from being so tired lol. I’d definitely go back on this ship especially with the crew they have. They are amazing hardworking people who need so much more recognition for what they do. If the menu does not have anything you want, they will accommodate you if they can. Will definitely be choosing Royal Caribbean again. Read Less
