Cabin: Spacious Ocean View Balcony

We took this cruise as part of a specific group, so neither the ship nor the itinerary was our choice. That said, we had a good time overall and give Royal Caribbean an A- for the experience.

The Ship: The ship is older than most we sail, and it’s age shows. Colors/decoration are dated. The ship has been updated, but with heavy use it is in need of some tweaks. Carpets are worn, furniture is sometimes stained, and sheets/towels are showing wear. The ship is clean, however metal deterioration is visible under paint, paint is scuffed, etc. Nothing major, but if you expect a new, glitzy ship, Adventure isn’t for you. The big plus for us, after having last sailed RC on the Allure, is it’s smaller size. The layout is somewhat similar, just on a more human scale. There were times it felt crowded, but overall no more so than Allure. Elevators were inconsistent, but generally adequate.

The Dining: The food was better than we expected. The main dining room was very good, considering they serve ~2,000 meals at each setting. The specialty restaurants were very good - we had the 3-meal package - and both Izumi and Chops served very good food with excellent service. We enjoyed the Chef’s Table food/wine pairing very much, however the venue on this ship is not ideal - it is a small half-level in the main dining room, so it is too loud to hear the chef’s descriptions clearly and enjoy visiting with others at the 12-person table. The buffet was fine for breakfast/lunch - both changed little during the week, but the food was freshly-made and plentiful, and the service was the best we have experienced in a mass-market ship buffet.

Cabin Review

Spacious Ocean View Balcony

Cabin 4B

Storage adequate for us. Soft surfaces (carpet, sofa, linens, etc) somewhat worn, but clean. Bed adequate but not luxurious. Lighting could be better, but it was adequate.
