Adventure of the Seas Cruise Review by CruisingCpl
- Sail Date: January 2006
- Destination: Southern Caribbean
We also felt the staff on the ship were overwhelmed by these P.R. passengers. Once again this is not to reflect all residents of P.R. as our day in San Juan was excellent and the people on the island were always helpful and courteous. Beautiful parks very clean ect. We also met another couple during our trip whom had spoken with a staff of the ship whom was distraught and informed them that alot of the staff was unhappy as cruises sailing out of this port usually contained a large number of guests whom do not tip for excellent service and was also reported to them that some of these guests would constantly take toilet paper from the bathrooms and would remove items from the honor bars in the rooms and then report they were never there. It was easily apparent to us that the entire ships staff morale was down but continued with good service. Our first day was Aruba and upon departure we rented a jeep. Aruba was beautiful and we highly recommend renting a jeep. We put approximately 100 miles on the jeep and was our favorite port on the entire cruise. We also rented a jeep in St Maarten but would recommend a cab to future travellers as it would definitely be more cost effective. Our second stop was Curacao and we rented a jeep there. We enjoyed a nice day of exploring the island and went to Happy Beach which was nice. Another of our other ports was St Thomas and we went to Megans Bay which is absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately other previous mentioned passengers also descended on this area with their children and continued to be loud and let their children act out the entire time. St Thomas is very expensive for cab fair approximately 10$ per person each way so rent a jeep! The days at sea were nice but would prefer to split them up better as it felt we were always in port and did not give us a chance to unwind between ports. As stated before this is our 3rd sailing on RCCL and found that the voyager ships all have the same activities which are abundant and you can't easily be bored. The food was very good especially at the formal dining area, where our group met up and discussed the day at ports. Our one complaint was that the gameshows and day activities were the same on all 3 cruises and felt they need to come up with some new material for those who have cruised on The Voyager class previously. We will sail with RCCL again however we will never sail out of P.R. again as it seemed to affect the entire mood of the ship. Once again this is not to reflect upon all of P.R. and its residents. Maybe RCCL should be less concerned with "filling" the ship at a lower cost. The Ship itself is well appointed and well laid out. After 3 cruises we probably have not seen it all. Our other complaint was departure in which rooms are assigned a color and number to be called for departure. We were exited to be number 1 however no one seemed to listen and everyone attempted to exit the ship at once. We never saw this on our sailings out of Fla. We would still recommend RCCL based on our previous sailings and hope this review has been helpful.
