  3. Adventure of the Seas
Well, our cruise can be summed up in many words, but some of the best to describe it were, fun-filled, exciting, and an "adventure". The people were very nice and helpful. We left from San Juan, Puerto Rico on Royal Caribbeans Adventure of The Seas, and embarked on our journey to St. Thomas, St, Maarten, Antigua, St. Lucia, and Barbados. We went with a large group of friends which we definitely recommend. We had 3 children with us who completely adored this trip. (The only thing we found to be a little disappointing was our seventeen yr old, and 2 sixteen yr olds found the Teen Club not to be what they expected. However, the night when families were allowed in the night club, Dancing through the Decades, and all the other activities completely made up for it.) We also found this cruise to be very safe, and noticed more security and control on the ship. Each day was completely packed with activities, so much that some days our kids didnt even want to get off to explore the ports. They even told us that the day at sea was their favorite and we believe it because we hardly saw them that day except for at dinner and all they could talk about were their activities of the day. From amazing shows after dinner, Name that Tune in the Schooner Bar, cocktails in the Viking Crown Lounge to the Belly Flop Competition, our days were filled and fun. The atmosphere was really great too. Every night on the decks there were countless parties with island music that really put everyone in the island spirit. Our two girls also grew quite hooked on our cruise director. He was so funny and outgoing. He was the best cruise director we have ever had and we've been on 11 cruises. His name is Richard Spacey. With his quick English wit, and great comedic timing, he set the perfect mood for each and every event. The girls were absolutely smitten by the end of our cruise. He seemed like a nice guy and his care for his job, really showed through. Time without the kids was nice for us, too. The Solarium was very relaxing, and a great place to just to kick back and talk with one another. At night the Casino Royale was hopping! We had so much fun and won some money! Our husbands played roulette, while the ladies stuck to the slots. It was a wonderful time. Jesters nightclub was packed too. We found it more geared for a slightly younger crowd (our seventeen year old was dying to get in), but still we had a good time dancing. Each night after our dinner, we would go to see a show. Although all of the shows were enjoyable, our families found the Royal Caribbean Singers and Dancers to be like Broadway performers, just like they said. Their shows seemed like a lot had been put into them and they appealed to everyone. Though, we didnt fancy the comedians, such as El Gaucho, as much. But still, the entertainment was phenomenal. The Royal Promenade was like nothing else. It looked like you were walking down a real street. It had perfect little boutiques, a few bars to lounge at (and enjoy a night cap), and the Cafe Promenade that offers food and beverages 24 hrs. It was a great amenity to the ship. Our families also took advantage of the numerous opportunities to have professional photos taken. On formal nights, and just for fun, you could take pictures, and buy just the ones you liked. We bought many and are really happy about the memories they hold. It was an amazing week and a great spring break for our kids. We can NOT wait to get back on another cruise. Royal Caribbean is the only cruise line we will ever cruise with. They provided us with the most excellent services, and have made our cruise another wonderful vacation. There are hopefully, many, many more to come for us. Enjoy your Cruising!
