We took this cruise because of price. We live in Florida and are Diamonds with Royal Caribbean. Usually cruise on the bigger ships so not sure how Adventure rates among ships that size. Sometimes internet did not work or was very slow. I work online so this was important. If I had known this I would not have taken this cruise. After missing a lot of work we were also not offered any refund on internet package. Very disappointing. We were happy with all the staff and the Ice Skating show was great. We ate at the windjammer and the food was good I could always find something that I liked. Windjammer was full of people a lot but we could always find a table. We liked the bar on deck 14 it had a nice view of about 270 degrees out the front of the ship. The water in the shower was not always hot and hate taking cold showers. Read Less

Eight day trip into the Caribbean, nice ports, good ship and overall nice experience. The ship was in good condition and nicely decorated for Christmas. The entertainment was good and diversified. The fitness center was not too crowded which is nice and the equipment was plentiful and varied. We like the promenade design with shops and eateries and the Duck and Dog Pub. Surprisingly they have the suites located on deck 10, just below the activities deck which means you should pick your room carefully or the overhead activity can make the room noisy. Eating in the Windjammer Cafe can be hectic at prime time and specially when there a lot of children aboard. The noise level is very high and is not helped by the constant playing of dreadful noisy music. Eating in the dining room is delightful and the food is generally good and certainly plentiful. Overall very satisfactory trip. Read Less

This was our first RC cruise. The ship was beautiful and the service was excellent. We ate in the Windjammer and the food was so much better than Carnival. My husband and I both gained weight. So many deserts, it was hard to choose one so we didnt just have one. If you take this cruise sit in section 12. The wait staff were all so sweet and helpful, I hated to say goodbye to them. We stayed in an inside promonade cabin. It was uncomfortable. Small and no place confortable to sit. It also was loud at times. Our cabin mate was wonderful and did everything he could do to try and soften up our bed but nothing worked. Our ports 1- Labadee is really beautiful, lots of fun in the water. And again the lunch they served was wonderful. 2- PR I love this place. Have been there a couple times. Just wear really comfortable broken in shoes. Don't get blisters like I did. See the fort and the cemetery and eat a mofongo and see if you can find the snow cone man (we couldn't find him this time) lots of walking and lovely shops. 3- St Maartin - we stayed at the boardwalk, shopped some We should have taken a tour. 4- St Kitts - we did the 4x4 and beach. It was ok, saw a lot of the island. The tour people were informative and very nice. We had already seen Brimstone on a prior cruise. If its your first time to the island Brimstone is the way to go. I was not able to get a lounger near the pool. It was always so crowded. My husband is a smoker so he sat at the smoking area on deck 11 all the time. No I will not be booking another cruise for a long time. I was more comfortable on the Carnival Ship. It was cheaper, the food wasn't as good so I didn't eat much and didn't gain weight. Having the smoking area near the pool causes a problem for a couple where one smokes and the other doesn't. if felt like I was always by myself. 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 cruise twice a year, with friends and family. I was excited to try out this ship as it had added the waterslides and had gotten some new updates. Embarkation went smoothly, the ship didn't seem overly crowded, and our room was clean. However, the service was lackluster in the dining room. We waited almost an hour for our main courses to arrive (dinner seating at 8); the waiters seemed rushed; often times our beverages ran out before being refilled, and the food wasn't extraordinary. We ate in Chops Grill for lunch and it was delicious, although there seemed to be only one waiter for the lunch crowd. Dinner in Giovanni's was better; our waitress was phenomenal, but the filet mignon my husband ordered left much to be desired. The shows were lackluster, perhaps because we had seen them before on other ships. We saw a repeat comedian towards the end of the cruise, who used the same jokes when we had seen him on another ship last year. The first comedian at the beginning of the cruise was hilarious, though! We attended both of his shows. The ice skating shows were awesome, those never disappoint. We did have an issue with noise in our stateroom, though, and after four days, they were able to reassign us to another room. Overall, this ship was ok. This was the first cruise that I was disappointed with service in the main dining room. Our room attendants were very nice and courteous and kept everything clean. 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.

For a first time we found great interest on this ship due to all it offered which met our expectations and more. The cabin we had gave a panoramic view where we were able to see the water up front and personal, great view at night. The ship was spectacular and able to walk to the helipad area was a great experience. I even walked there at night and was able to stargaze. (If it was to windy, wouldn't of gotten this opportunity, and did). Unforgettable staff and crew members who gave exceptional service beyond imaginable. Dinner was a whole new level of dining, made you feel like you are a king or queen. Throughout the ship all staff were courteous and respectful as well friendly. Activities available Read Less

STAFF Many of the staff unfriendly, and not helpful or not willing to help. Never answered phones when calling because of long lines at the customer service desk. I have never seem so many employees not willing or able to make a simple decision. I am not a needy person. I own a business and thought about if this was my business. Except for the states room personnel, all employees; food, managers, service, etc., seem to be unhappy and clearly it affected their jobs. It is clear that giving tips automatically has hurt the service on these cruises. INTERNET Internet worthless. They print material saying fastest internet at sea (Voom). Did not work two days, completely down, struggled to load a simple web page, and instead of refunding paying customers for the days not working, hours in line to negotiate refund for lost days. Employee handling my refund looked around to see if any other customers were looking to show me what he was taking off my bill. They clearly did not want to do the right thing and simply refund their customers for something they paid for and did not get. I spent at least two hours on the first day trying to credit a stupid credit that should have been given in the first place. The second time the internet went down, the line as two hours long for the same damn thing. I call the service desk and said I would not stand in line. They said someone would call me back. I said the last time it took two days. I told the service person to call themselves and give me the refund. I received the refund several days after the cruise. DINING We purchased upscale dining. Employee setting times had not clue what he was doing. Arrived at Izumi for a 7:15 reservation at 6:50. Nobody in restaurant and they would not seat us until 7:10. Ordered at 7:30 after asking to be helped and left the restaurant at 8:10, no food, late for show. Employees eating there sat down after us, ate, and left withing 20 minutes. Manager threw the server under the bus and blamed him and our complicated order (we ordered off the menu) as the reason for the mess. After the show we decided to eat at 10 PM at Johnny Rockets. They charged is $12.00 per person. After many, many conversation with the manager, hours wasted, they finally refunded the Johnny Rockets and our up-charge for the fine dining. Food was good at the other two restaurants, but the menu never changed. Just go once or twice and not purchase every night. Moral of the story, find another cruise line! Read Less

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
