Pre-Cruise - flew to San Juan on April 16th and spent 3 glorious days in Mayaguez with our friend. Absolutely loved it there. On the 19th, we boarded Adventure. This was our 75th cruise and our 68th on Royal Caribbean. We have been on Voyager and Explorer but this was our first time on Adventure. We have cruised many times our of San Juan. By far our favorite place to cruise from. We love the Southern Caribbean. Very port intensive which is what we love. Spent all our time on our favorite beaches. Just a brief review of all the things: Ship - gorgeous. So pretty. Very clean and well maintained. Loved the new Diamond Lounge. We never went to the CL. the DL is so much nicer with the great views. The Concierge in the DL (Ryno Strapp) was one of the best we have ever had. Instead of sitting at his desk all week and not talking to us until the last night when they want tips, he talked to every table at least 5-10 minutes each and every night. What a great guy. Enjoyed talking to him. Staff were so friendly - always a good morning or hi. Service was fantastic. We were very pleased to see great service at the pool. On Enchantment in Feb you could not find a pool server to save you life. On Adventure, they were all over the place. Never had to hunt one down so Adventure gets major kudos for that. We had a Deck 8 hump balcony and loved it. Have the same cabin on Adventure again next year. Food - a subjective topic for me as I am not a foodie at all. But my husband thought the food was excellent. We ate 3 nights in the MTD, 1 night in Johnny Rockets, and 2 nights in the buffet. all were excellent. Buffet the final night in the Island Oasis was amazing - stir fry, seafood, chicken. So many choices!! Only complaint from hubby is that he did not think the lobster was that great. Everything else was wonderful Shows - probably some of the best we have seen on Royal (other than Oasis/Allure). Went both times to the Ice Show it was so good. First night comedian was so funny (and I don't like comedians). Vegas style show was awesome, so colorful and the singers/dancers were very good. They had a group of 5 guys one night that made their own music. Called REVOICED. OMG they were fantastic!!! Loved them, so talented. Then they had another production show with some latin American dance champions that were so good. Only night we did not like was the last night when they had a mime Ports of Call - we are beach people so don't do excursions. We have our favorite beaches on each island and that is where we spent our days. Loved everything about the ship, shows, staff, service, etc. Cannot wait to go on Adventure again next year.

Cabin Review

Cabin 8313
Very nice hump balcony. Mirror in the bath could be replaced, showing its age a bit, but not a big deal for us. Views were perfect. Right in the middle of the hump which is our favorite place to be.
