we embarked the adventure of the seas at approx 10.30 am on 13th november. i found the process very efficient and fast as we had already printed our sea pass.within 10 mins we aboard and exploring this beautiful ship.it is very beautiful and well looked after.the cabin was a standard inside but was more than adequate with a large bed,very comfortable, and small sitting area. the storage was more than adequate and well thought out.it was well cared for by our efficient and helpful attendant meryleena,thank you.
i queued for approx 15 mins to have our dining time and restaurant altered, we travelled with another 2 couples. this was done with great efficiency by a very helpful australian girl.
the main dining room was lovely and our waiters daniel and ephraim were helpful and entertaining during the trip.the food was good and well presented.
we had room service for breakfast the two days in port as the island restaurant could be jam packed at times with difficulty in getting a table. romm service breakfast was lovely. the food in the island restaurant was lovely with lots o choice ,especially the desserts as my expanded waistline will testify.
we enjoyed the schooner bar in the evening but get there early as seats are limited,the ice show was great and i enjoyed the casino.
the only critisism was the price of drinks with the house wine at six dollars a glass plus tax and gratuities but with what i paid for the cruise i was very happy. this was my first cruise with rci but i hope not the last
the cabin was very comfortable and quiet. the bed was large and the sitting area adequate,good storage and well planned
rained the day we visited tenerife and we just walked about the town which we found rather dull and uninspiring
just walked from boat into funchal,nice walk around the promenade. too big a queue for the cable car so we walked around the town which was very pretty. found a taxi driver offering the same tour as the boat for 15 euro each as opposed to 50 euro each. so my advice is not to book tour on the boat and find one a lot cheaper in town
