This was our seventh cruise with RCCL and we had a blast despite some of our issues with the cruise. We arrived a day earlier and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Port and Sea. We had read some negative reviews about it but it was great and super clean. We took their shuttle to the port and got their around 12:15pm. There were no lines and since we are platinum members and had a suite we went to the priority line. We were checked in and on our way in 5 minutes. Upon entrance to the ship we were directed to the Adventure Ocean staff as we had our two boys with us, ages 7 and 8 and told where to go for lunch. My first impression of the Windjammer was what a mess. There are endless lines and people cutting in front of you. They really need to do something as it was way to hectic. The seating was also an issue. We then went to check out our cabin. It was a nice size with plenty of storage space as well as a bathtub. It was rather outdated and there was a musty smell outside our door in the hallway. However, James, our cabin steward was great. The pool area was a mess as it was spring break and the chair hogs were at it. Also, they really need to enforce the smoking policy as there was not a place on the pool deck to get away from it. I usually don't complain but this was something that was not acceptable as they were even smoking around the children's splash pool, which by the way was hardly ever on. Food was okay. We ate in Chops one night and it was worth the $20.00 each. The food is sometimes bland in the dining room and the lobster was soggy. In Jamaica we went to Shaw Beach. It was nice but not great by any means. It was very rocky and there was a nude beach right next door. In Grand Cayman we did the snorkel and stingray tour. This was a blast and the water was beautiful. The shows are not the best and most of them are pretty boring. We did love the Quest though. They really need to have some todays hits music going on and not have to start at midnight. The solarium pool was nice and quiet but think they should allow children in at night at it is sometimes to windy on the open deck pool and the solarium pool was empty most nights. The kids loved Adventure Ocean and that is one of the reasons we only sail on RCCL. We have been on Carnival and were not impressed at all. Overall, we had a nice time but they need to really update the whole ship not just bits and pieces.
