I just came back from Adventure Of The Seas ... It was my first cruise and it was amazing from the beginning to end ! ... Getting on the ship in Cape liberty was quick ... We got on the ship at 11 by 1 our bags were at the rooms already .. I had a balcony room it was a nice size for two people it had a little couch also and a makeup area. The balcony was my favorite I would deff recommend to get one ... The pool area was beautiful plenty of bars the drinks were excellent!! I don’t drink a lot so I only got the refreshment package but I will deff be getting the alcohol next time .. coco cay is so nice there’s everything on it ... chairs everywhere to sit or u can upgrade and spend money on a cabana .. We did the jet ski tour it was well worth !! The boat brings ur lunch on the beach which was cool and that’s Royal Caribbean’s island so all the drinks were free if u had the package there’s all little huts and hair braiding there’s even a bar in the water ... Florida we went went to the beach with the shuttle it brought us right there and right back bet relaxing... Nassau we did the Belmont island and that was gorgeous!!! It rained on an off but it was still insanely nice the only water you can see crystal clear there was two pools optional swim with dolphins ... the only thing is the food and drinks where a little expensive but we got a few drinks and went back to the boat to eat when we were done ...The main dining room was delicious the waiter Ramil and he’s helper Pablo was the best and the room cleaner edy was great to ...The food was great every day and we did the buffet at the windjammer which had everything... I went with a group of people I am 24 and the ages were 24 to 70 andWe all had a great time it’s a family boat , single people will have a good time and a lot for kids everyone there is something for .... the shows and game shows are awesome ... !I already booked my second one !!!

Chosen for port of Embarkation and cost. Unfortunately, with everyone telling me how great cruises are, etc. It set a level of expectation that I didn't feel was met. The soups were too salty, the Omelette station was too slow, worse since there were two people preparing them and then oiling the pan AND spraying it. The Cafe Promenade which catered to the out of hours dining rooms featured pizza, tea sandwiches and salads. But Ni's winning smile was worth the trip. The schedule should have been given for the entire length of the cruise instead of daily. It would help you plan your itinerary better when there was an overlap, which forced you to sometimes make the wrong decision if you didn't think you'd get a second opportunity, It seemed kind of silly that the photography gallery was inaccessible when the cash registers weren't open. It's obviously for upselling purposes but if I could have the opportunity to review my images on MY time I might have purchased more, I hate being rushed. The drink and wi-fi sales the last two days were last minute marketing gimmicks which was a waste of time. It might help those of us who don't drink enough to justify a drink package, especially if your partner doesn't drink. Read Less

Wow, the phrase: "You Have Got to be Kidding" came out a lot. This was our first RC cruise and didn't know what to expect. For starters, the RC website was cumbersome to use, having to log in multiple times on one session was annoying. I uploaded id photos a number of times and looks like they finally were accepted, only to have our pictures taken again at check-in. We really liked the touch-screen maps on the ship, they were helpful. I wish they had rolled out the app for all of their ships, it's a great feature on the Carnival ships. The major disappointment was the food we received in the dining room, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Our dinner table mates, who have taken RC before, also mentioned the food was bland and not up to their usual standards. Breakfast on the first sea day, the buffet/a-la-carte was new to us and we did the a-la-carte. the server gave my wife a hard time, because she ordered things that could be obtained from the buffet, why have a menu? We're on a nice cruise and didn't want to deal with a server giving us attitude, we can get that at home. She was giving others a hard time too. The first three dinners the food was BLAND at best (color, taste, texture), we expected to be blown away by the food. A highlight was the Cafe Promenade, it was quick and everything but the pizza was good. Though we only ate lunch in the dining room once, it was equally sad. It wasn't until the fourth night that we actually got a good meal, we got in late due to recuperating from a shore excursion, so we did the my time dining and got a great serving team. Karl helped us order off menu and we got the Indian vegetarian meal that the crew gets. It was the bomb and ordered the Indian vegetarian the rest of the trip (definitely not bland). The fitness center was great, one downside was if you showed up at 6:00 am, you couldn't get a locker until 7:30. Also, there wasn't any water to take to-go. Had to go, all sweaty, to the Cafe Promenade on deck 5 to get a glass of water. Also enjoyed the skating show and the piano bar. We were very pleased about the clientele, especially since it was spring break. we appreciated the way the ship manages children's entertainment, it was much better than expected. The food and food service really put us off, there was A LOT to like about the ship, but the dining room experience was a huge disappointment. Read Less

I hope that this experience is not an indication of the standard service that the Royal Caribbean brand will now be providing. Check in was a nightmare. New policies about who can and can't check in are in effect and not communicated. If traveling with a minor in a separate cabin if they do not ajoin and the adult in the room with the minor has not checked in, you have to wait until they do check in before the minor can check in despite traveling. Of course the flight of the adult was delayed but luckily we were able to switch the minor to a different room to at least get her aboard the ship then switched her back after the adult arrived. If we knew having adjoining rooms would have satisfied this then we would have booked those room types or traveled all together. This was the slowest and worst check in I have ever experienced. Waiting for the elevator just to get to the room was totally ridiculous. Cabins...we had cabins were on decks 7 and 8 midship. Outside balconies and interior rooms with a view of the decks below. The rooms were nice and our stateroom attendant Damain was great! And very attentive. Rooms availability upon boarding was a big plus. Not having to wait around in the Windjammer with carry on luggage and backpacks was really nice. Dinner...dispite linking all of our reservations for 8:30 dinner the dining room was totally clueless that our group of 19 wanted to be seated together or even next to each other. And we couldn't be seated until 9pm and didn't get food until almost 10pm. Dinner seating got better in the main dining room as the cruise progressed but by then we found alternatives. Two dinner dining highlights were the Murder Mystery Dinner at Giovanni's Table courtesy of our waiter Mohammed and dinner on day 5 at Chops Grill made amazing by our waiter Igor! But on the last night of the cruise 6 other members of our parry went to Chops and sat for 40 minutes with no service at all. After they walked the host and maitre'd apologized and offered to comp the meal if they came back in but the experience was already ruined and they went to the main dining room at our regular dining time. Windjammer...Breakfast...as to be expected getting a table on sea days was an exercise in patience and restraint but the Adventure of the Seas offered room service which we opted to get on the second sea day to avoid the issues we had on the first all day at sea. The food arrived within the time window but the order form says indicate the amount of food you wish to order. This is where things get lost in translation...we wanted 4 pancakes but what we got was 4 orders of pancakes. We wanted 3 scrambled eggs but what we got was three orders of 2 scrambled eggs. The bacon had the number 3 beside it so we ordered 2 orders expecting 6 bacon strips we got a pile of bacon on each of the three orders of eggs. The order form is definitely needs to be clarified. Excursions...we had 4 originally then one was canceled days before we set sail. No issue because we were refunded the money. BUT when our excursion tickets were delivered we were missing some and others had different times so we had to change all the time to make sure the group stayed together. The excursions we picked overall were fun but the Helmut Dive in Aruba was great but if we had known that this was an activity island after paying for the most expensive activity we would have liked to stay longer to enjoy the entire facility. As it was we left late because we were waiting for 1 person who didn't show up, the ferry wasn't there by the time we arrived or departed so we lost an hour of our onsite excursion time easily which was disappointing. The Amazing Race excursion in St. Maarten was a little hectic. They suggested that we have 10 to 12 people on each team which did not work well. Our team consisted of people who did the excursion before with teams of four people and they preferred that experience over this one. However after that we relaxed on the beach and went jet skiing which was great. Kids Club/Teen Club We had an 11 year old (her fourth cruise) and 12 year old (first time cruiser) with us and usually Kids Club is the highlight of the cruise. But not this year. Everytime they went to the Teen Club for an activity that was on the schedule there was no one in the area. The girls were so disappointed that they gave up going to the club. Guest Services...I was on a line either at Guest Services or Shore Excursions 4 times the first day. After that, I was at Guest Services at least twice a day every day for the entire cruise. Pools...small and jammed packed. If you didn't get a spot by 9am then your weren't going to get a spot until 5pm when the 6pm diners left to get ready for dinner. Bars....service at all the bars was meh! Most of us had the ultimate beverage package but the drink of the day was NOT included ...um so the all included package was not really ALL inclusive. We were also disappointed that there was no "happy hour" like we experienced on the Anthem. Entertainment..if there was something interesting and actually occurring for the teens durning the time the "adult only" activities was going on then maybe the adult activities wouldn't have had so many kids in the audience or as participants. The Blue Moon Bar/night club was fun but the 80's party was more like a 80's, 90's and 2000's party. And the music was defininately repeated on other nights despite the theme so it was kind of one note. The silent party was interesting and fun but that was one hour at night twice during the sailing. Where were the shows or comedians for the late dining crowd? It felt like there were limited options once the 8:30pm dinner session was over. 10pm no shows or entertainment only a deejay or live band in the middle of a set. On the last night durnign the farewell show they was a comedian who did an adult show later on that evening but one show on the last night of the cruise was too little too late. The cupcake decoration class was cute but not well advertised. We stumbled across it. In general the onboard activities seem to be scarce. There were two formal nights, an 80's party and white party which if we would have known about prior to getting on board we would have packed clothes to attend the events. Overall this year's family trip with 20 of us was fun and we enjoyed ourselves but this experience with Royal Caribbean was far below our expectations for the brand. We will stick to all inclusive resorts that are used to larger parties when we travel with more than 6 people. Or maybe we will try the larger ships. Read Less

We wanted to do the southern Caribbean especially the island of Bonaire. Boarding was fast however the photos uploaded did not load to their system. Also we were unable to sign the waivers online like previously. Very annoying. The room was normal and nothing special. The dining room menu had many items repeating night to night. Shrimp cocktail and no sugar added apple pie and several other items recurred nightly. The food temperature was also slightly above warm. The Windjammer had a huge selection and the same items appeared everymorning. Always a strawberry smoothie no other flavors, same granola with apple and yogurt. No variation. Did not offer Tomato juice had to ask for it. Then at the pool bar is limited for alcoholic drinks. They no longer use island Oasis drink mix but rather use cream and ice and flavoring from another company. They have a limited menu and would appreciate a large list of frozen drinks / island drinks. The drink of the day is also on the weak side. Entertainment was ok. Casino was smokey. It was decent but nothing at all exceptional. Read Less

Initially recommended by to me by a friend, they made us aware of Royal Caribbean and the great selection of cruises available. The overall cruise experience superseded my expectations. The destinations were a great selection of Caribbean islands to visit. The onboard entertainment and organised events like the ice skating shows and musicals were fantastically organised and choreographed, the food (both buffet and a la carte) were excellent standard and the service was truly second to none. We found the ship to be incredibly clean. Our cabin was tidied and cleaned twice daily. The facilities were clean. The staff across the ship went over and above expected levels to make our cruise experience a special experience. The staff also made a big effort with our children and made their experience a special one also. It was a truly wonderful week made better by the service levels given to all guests on board. Thank you so much Royal Caribbean, Read Less

Overall this trip may have been my favorite cruise on Royal Caribbean. One thing I really liked is that we went down to San Juan a day before our ship left to get a full day 1 of our cruise. We stayed at the Hampton Inn and had good service. The next morning at 11:00 we left our hotel and got an Uber. You can not get on the ship before 12:00. Because we are Emerald members we got to skip the big embarkation line. The ship had been recently updated with a FloRider and waterslides. The fun waterslides had a clear plastic part so you could see over the ocean. Everything was very clean and updated to a modern level. We had better entertainment on Oasis and Allure, but the comedians were very good. As always, the food was spectacular and came in great portions. On my 4 cruises with Royal Caribbean, I have never seen a unhappy crew member. They are all so nice! I would never go to a different cruise line. But I would gladly go again! Read Less

I think that the Adventure of the Sea is beautiful cruise and the employees were super kind and attentive my cabin was always kept super clean, we love the way we were treated specially at the Dining great service thanks to Rosalino, Dianah and the rest of the crew. The entertainment and activities were super fun I think there was a little bit for everyone. I was amazed on how fast and easy we embaked and diembarked the service in general was an A+. My only regret is that Royal Caribbean was mostly an all inclusive type of cruise were only few things were to be paid seprately like pictures package, liquor, island excursions.... I disagree there were that enough water station or having to pay for drinking water and the internet should be free. It was really had to get anything to drink unless you buy your drinking package with I found to be too expensive. Read Less

The activities on the ship were well run, and a lot of fun. They did have a great balance of events in types in both English and Spanish. The ports we went to were great in the south-east Caribbean, and we were docked at each of them. The excursions we did through the ship were great values and a ton of fun. We did two of them and both were well run as well. The dinner service was excellent, and they went out of their way to meet our needs. I was pleasantly surprised with the buffet (Windjammer cafe) whose food was excellent for all meals during the day! The few issues we had were the main dining room's (sapphire) breakfast food and service. I love eggs benedict at that was the only place to get it on the cruise, but each time I ordered it the eggs were overcooked. In addition to that, the service at breakfast was subpar, with servers not offering us coffee, or pastries as they walked around and skipped us. The cabin was what you expect on a cruise, totally manageable space wise with a nice couch to sit on if you want. Having a window overlooking the promenade was very nice to make it feel more open. The only issue I had with the cabin is that when they had loud late night parties on the promenade we could hear the bass and a little of the music. It only happened two nights of the cruise and the rest of the time the room was very quiet. My wife and I were very happy with it as our honeymoon cruise. Read Less

In overall opinion the cruise is good but the food menu is poor. The meats selection is not good for my opinion. I was confuse because I did not known if the salads and pasta were the principal plate and the meats the complements. Too much foods with differents ingredients and strong tastes. I think that the foots must be provide by contries and choosing the must allusive of every region or country. For example Mexico the burritos and nachos, US the hamburger and chicken wings, PR the rice and beans, and so on. When I purchased the tickets for the cruise nobody tell us how was the package for shore excurtions, the packages of drinks. I believe that this packages should be explains with more details. Because in my case, if I had the general opinion of how these packages are. I would have bought before. Because the islands that we visit, does not have much to see by yourself. Read Less
