Adventure of the Seas Cruise Review by DrGaellon

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2019
  • Destination: the Bahamas
  • Cabin Type: Junior Suite

Sailing out of Bayonne (40 miles from home) was luxuriously convenient. This ship was larger than our first cruise (on Brilliance), but never really felt crowded. We were less-than-impressed with food in the main dining room, and will probably plan for upgraded/specialty dining every night on future cruises. The three specialty restaurants were all excellent, as one might expect.

Our cabin was amazing - much larger than we expected, and very comfortable. Needs more outlets, though. Our room attendant, Emina, was wonderful.

In Bermuda, we did a five-hour wraparound tour of the island with Juanita, the owner of Bermuda Island Tours and More (booked through Viator). She is a native Bermudan and former police officer on the island, so she knows everything there is to know. Highly recommended.

In Nassau, we did the half-day Pearl Island excursion. Lovely beach island and a nice lunch (BBQ chicken and fried grouper, with rice-and-beans and cole slaw). Overpriced drinks, but that's to be expected. We had dinner at the Green Parrot Harbourfront, which was a very nice restaurant - but even though it's only 3/4 mile from the ship, walking there is NOT recommended. We walked through a pretty sketchy part of town.

We were disappointed with the piano player in the Schooner Bar. Somewhat limited repertoire. We very much enjoyed the Champagne Bar, and the Rockstar cocktail (or a variation thereof) is going to be my new summer sipper.

We did not attend any of the entertainment (my husband did karaoke one night and had a lot of fun, he told me) nor did we use the fitness and recreation facilities. We indulged in a hot-rocks couples massage at the spa, which was wonderfully relaxing.

Cabin Review

Junior Suite
Cabin J3 9334

Astonishingly spacious with walk-in closet, bathroom with tub (not just shower stall), loveseat, 2 chairs, cocktail table, large balcony with table, two chairs, and a lounger. We're now spoiled and will likely never go back to a regular balcony room.


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Perfect Day at CocoCay

My husband had a lovely time. I overheated and went back to the ship after less than an hour.

We did the half-day Pearl Island excursion. Lovely beach island and a nice lunch (BBQ chicken and fried grouper, with rice-and-beans and cole slaw). Overpriced drinks, but that's to be expected.
