We chose this cruise because we wanted to party over New Year's and we did. Easy getting on the ship with an early shuttle and as promised room was open right at 1 o'clock. The Adventure is an older ship and showing her age even though many on board said she had been recently renovated. Casino was small, paint and hardware needed attention and many areas were just not serviced in a timely manner especially public restrooms. Room attendants were top notch for us and for everyone we chatted with but they battled with hardware falling off and bath areas that just were not cleanable. Shows were average with the exception of the second production show and a fabulous hypnotist who had everyone laughing out loud. Can not comment on ports or excursion since we had done the Caymans many times including spending a week at Christmas one year and had also visited the Mexican ports at a safer time. There was just the two of us and we enjoyed pool days and party nights. Bartenders are good at their jobs and pool attendants were very attentive. Food was only average or below average if you cruise on any of the upscale lines. Would I go again? Probably would if I needed a party and a short cruise but not willing to travel from Kentucky for a short cruise on this ship. This time fit perfectly because we were able to follow it with two weeks in a condo at Pompano.

Easy on, lazy days, slow leaving.
