Services on the Adventures of the Sea were outstanding. Pleasant no matter where you were and whomever you talked to. Food was excellent and they were pleased to serve you extra also. The last night was a ball seeing the chefs waiters helpers All parade around for you to cheer them on for their wonderful job. Captain was great he would keep us all up to date on weather and for this being my 1st cruise, it was pleasant sailing back and forth. Royal Caribbean you have my next cruise. Only thing is just wish we had another movie channel or a comedy series on the tv for watching when getting dressed or just for relaxing before bedtime! Ship was big yet there was no waiting on line for anything. Everything was organized perfectly. Wasn’t too happy with the fact that at Atlantis we couldn’t find even one beach chair to just sit and watch our grandchild play in the water. Every chair was saved They should have had a section in different places for us who came from the boat . You should have different prices like just to visit Atlantis and not have to pay the 199 for each of us We actually went there because we wanted to see the place. We were married there 34 years ago and wanted to see it. Read Less

I took this cruise because my dancers were performing on the ship and we went as a large group. We had a wonderful experience and my only criticism is the process in which they handled the tendering at Coco Cay. The food and service were excellent. The ship was super clean, classy and fun! The entertainment was terrific and there was never a lack of something to do. The cruise director, Chloda was absolutely outstanding and had us constantly laughing and looking forward to the next activity! We loved the comedians, magicians, singers and dancers. They even had an ice show! I was super impressed with how well the crew handled a medical emergency and coast guard rescue from the ship.....well done! I had a few friends that had things go wrong and the staff went out of their way to try to resolve it as fast as possible and to their satisfaction as well. Read Less

My girlfriend and I did a 7 day Royal Caribbean cruise with stops at Port Canaveral, Coco Cay and Nassau, Bahamas. The crew made the cruise as great as it was. From the wait staff, to the bartenders, to the room service, to the entertainers, Royal Caribbean’s staff was amazing throughout. Our cabin was cleaned and spotless everyday. The breakfast buffet was full and plenty everyday. The wait staff was impeccable during our evening dining and the bartenders were fast and friendly. Royal Caribbean made shore excursions easy to get to and were very well organized. The pool side entertainment and late night entertainment was one of the many highlights of our trip. The singers and dancers were fantastic. The comedians were hilarious. The magician was blindblowing and the entertainment staff provided us with fun and laughs throughout. This was my first cruise and I could not be any happier with my decision to cruise with Royal Caribbean. I would highly recommend cruising with Royal Caribbean and would also highly recommend the Adventure of the Seas. Read Less

We had a lot of fun on Adventure of the Seas. This ship had a little bit of everything and if you got bored, it was your own damn fault (I heard one couple complain at dinner that there wasn't a great selection of pay per view movies!! Who has time to watch movies on a cruise?). We enjoyed all of the late night shows; the Quest was a lot of fun, the comedians were funny, and the ice show was pretty. The best entertainment night was the Elton John tribute show (that guy was awesome). Also, the disco party is always a favorite of ours, especially when the guys dressed like the Village People come down to dance with the audience. There were so many things to do every day: trivia, mini golf, ping pong, shuffleboard, ice skating, and even the Flow Rider, which is simulated surfing. It's ALL fun. We went on several excursions. The best one was in Portland, Maine, when we boarded an old schooner and took a sail around the bay. Sure, in the Caribbean, they would've handed us rum punch, but I guess I can't count on that in 57-degree Maine. We also too, a bus to the Portland Head Light. There were vendors set up right outside the ship and we were able to buy a bunch of handmade souvenirs that were pretty nice. In Bar Harbor, we went on a bus trip to Acadia National Park and a lobster bake, which was a HIT with the folks on our cruise: we had 3 tour buses full of folks doing this. Okay, the bus trip was ridiculous--our guide kept saying, "this is a good spot to take photos! The view is amazing--but we're not going to stop here, so just look out your window. On the left. There it goes!" He did this several times. We stopped exactly twice to take photos at some kind of little bridge thing that was important in some way and another time at a bathroom, for r old folks who I guess couldn't hold it (nothing to see at that stop). I didn't really see Acadia Narional Park except for the glances of things as we rolled by. We saw other tour buses stopping and people getting out, but we whizzed right on by everyone. That was disappointing. But the meal was pretty amazing and my mom said it made up for the crappy "tour". Everyone got a whole lobster, a half an ear of corn, and 3 new potatoes (red potatoes). There were many very happy lobster-eating folks! In the Canadian ports, we did hop on-hop off bus tours around the cities, which were blah. No air conditioning. I guess they don't need it that far north usually, but the day we were in Halifax, it was 93 degrees and we were melting on that double decker bus. I'm not sure why we paid over $50 per person to do those, but they have us some interesting history lessons about the cities, I guess. My only complaint on this whole cruise was with the Internet. We prepaid for the Internet package a few months beforehand. It was over $100 for the week and sadly, was unreliable and SLOW. VERY SLOW. So slow, in fact, that we weren't able to FaceTime with family (we have a family member who was undergoing chemo and wanted to check on him, but were unable to do so because of our unreliable connection). I think the Internet package is touted as being "the fastest at sea" or something to that effect. Really, I'd like the proof on that one. It was hard to load email when I needed to check in a few times during that week. Read Less

I throughly enjoyed our cruise and would recommend this ship and a Canadian/New England cruise. Foremost, the crew was amazing, especially our main dining room staff and state room attendants. I appreciate the hard work, attentiveness and kindness. They provided the personal touches that made the experience special. The food was excellent (especially in the main dining room, most hit or miss in the wind jammer), the amenities were good (pools, flowrider, perfect storm slides, ice skating), the entertainment we saw was very good (especially the ice show and lounge entertainment). The experience was everything I was looking for, being: pampered, indulged, wowed, entertained. Background: Our group of 10 included four kids (4-9 years old), four adults in the their 40’s and two seniors in their 70’s. None of us had been on a cruise in the last 10 years. We were celebrating a 50th anniversary and looking for lots of family time, interesting ports and food choices that would accommodate various eating preferences. Embarkation: Half of our group flew into Newark the day before embarkation and stayed at the Country Inn & Suites near the airport. They had good reports about the hotel and it provided a shuttle from the airport to the hotel (but not to the cruise terminal). They took an Uber to the cruise terminal in the morning. Two of our group took an Amtrak to Newark the morning of the cruise and took an Uber to the terminal. My group drove to the terminal and parked their. Parking was $140 for the cruise and we got covered parking in the structure. The parking area is right next to the embarkation area, maybe a five minute walk. Embarkation was easy, if a bit chaotic with the different lines (screening, check-in). We arrived quite a bit earlier (2 hours) than our scheduled check-in time and there was no problem getting on early. Stateroom: We had five interior staterooms on deck 6. The rooms were small, but not as small as we feared. The furniture, rugs, cabinets etc were in pretty good shape, but not as good condition as the public spaces. We were very pleased with our choice of an interior room. The darkness helped with sleep and relaxation. The rooms were overall very quiet, but there was some early morning noises of carts rolling coming from service decks below. Deck 6 seemed like a good location: close to the Royal promenade and dining room. Our stateroom attendants were excellent, hard working, friendly and engaging with the kids. Thanks Suseno and Renalto! Dining: Dinner: We had all our dinners in the Sapphire main dining room. We were happy with our choice to eat there over the Windjammer. None of us tried the specialty dining options. The food ranged from good to excellent. We took our server’s recommendations and were pleased. The excellent dishes were: lamb chops, escargot, burrata, beet and greens salad, prime rib, lobster tail (yes, there was lobster night), crab cake. The desserts were also very good, especially the cheese cake, molten chocolate cake, warm cookie with ice cream, creme brulee. The dinner service was great. Our server, Seddely, learned our preferences and had food ready for the kids when we arrived. He pampered us with extra servings without asking. The head waiter, Nikolai, arranged for special food for a gluten free member of our group and had a special cake ordered for the celebration of the 50th anniversary we were taking the cruise to celebrate. The extraordinary thing the dinner service did was expand the size of our table. We had ten people at a table that would comfortably sit eight. We had been on the waiting list for the early seating, so I was happy to be there at all. The dining room staff noticed we didn’t have a lot of room and on the third day they had a carpenter on the ship cut a piece of plywood to fit on top of our table to give us more room. It was truly exceptional and kind service. I had mixed feelings about the early, 5:30pm, seating. It worked with the kid’s schedules, but we missed the sights as we left three of the four ports at 5:30pm. We could’ve switched to the Windjammer those nights, but I did enjoy the main dining room. Lunches: We tried the windjammer and main dining room. The main dining room had its usual excellent service and entree choices not available at the windjammer. There was a flourless chocolate cake with rsaperiees at the main dining room that I only saw at the first at-sea day that was extraordinary. I guess I don’t have much to say about the lunches, they were not a food highlight. Breakfast: we tried the Windjammer, main dining room and room service (free options only) for breakfast. All three had similar options, but the main dining room had an a la carte menu in addition to a buffet. Regardless of the venue, I thought the variety of croissants were the best pastry items. The omelet station in the windjammer had the freshest food which was a nice change. Activities: The highlights were the more active amenities: Flowrider, perfect storm water slides, rock climbing, ice skating. The staff at the water sports and the rock climbing stood out as being really supportive, there was a very positive feeling. The 7 and 9 year olds were tall enough for the water slide (48” min., I believe), but only the 9 year old was tall enough for the Flowrider (52” to boogie board). I rode the water slide a few times and it was pretty thrilling. The lines were moderate on our cruise, but I could see them being quite long on caribbean cruises with warmer weather. Ice skating was fun and it was cool that the skaters from the ice show handled the logistics of the open skate sessions so you could see them off the ice. Entertainment: We didn’t go to too many of the entertainment events, but what we saw was very good. The ice show was amazing, not to be missed. The show was very creative and the skaters very skilled, especially for such a small space. I was impressed that they had 10 skaters! Our cruise was over July 4th. There was a balloon drop on the Royal promenade in the evening and a very good rendition of the US national anthem by one of the professional singers. It was cool to see the prep in the morning, quite a production. I saw the big band perform a few times which was quite good. Kids: The kids loved the boat, especially the food :) We didn’t use the onboard child care, so I can’t say anything about that. Summary: A very well run cruise. I would recommend this cruise line, ship and itinerary to others. Read Less

Had a great time and was taken care of like we were royalty! Excellent staff and plenty to see on ship as well as ports of call. Enjoyed the many shows on board. The shore excursions were very good and the tour guides very informative and had plenty of personal experiences related to the tours. The food in all the dinning rooms was delicious. The evening dinner was made special by our wait staff. The would have our drinks at the table when we arrived every evening and would take care of us with out complaint. they were always smiling and I felt that they loved to make their guest happy. The shows on board were always very professional. The entertainment provided by staff was fun also. The "game show" and trivia events were awesome. The entertainment staff made sure that there was something for everyone to enjoy! Thanks for an awesome vacation. Read Less

We found our time extremely relaxing and thank the crew for an amazing voyage! My expectations were exceeded as I figured it would be mediocre compared to our Alaska cruise with an upscale cruise line. Because of the service we received I would definitely go RC again. From the food and beverage staff - the housekeeping staff - we were treated like royalty and enjoyed the adventure. I say this as a person who has worked in hospitality for over 25 years and actually conducted customer service training to more than 2,000 local Lancastrians This crew nailed it! Entertainment as ok - the comedian was super! The ice show was great. I liked that coffee was available at 5am as I am an early riser and enjoyed this. Would definitely recommend that you do choose a time for dining as not having done that it was problematic at times to get to dine in the MDR - which was our fault. Read Less

My wife and I got a great deal on this cruise. We have always stayed away from the NY/NJ/Balt to Bahamas / Port Canaveral itinerary. We just thought it was a blah itinerary. We were wrong. We met friends in Port Canaveral and had a great time. Coco Cay was simple and perfect. The trip to Cabbage Beach in Nassau is a favorite or ours. Three fun stops and some great days at sea. We've been on big ships and small ships and the Adventure OTS was right in the middle. It was easy to navigate and not Oasis long. We had a 6th floor forward balcony. The location was perfect. A simple walk down a flight of stairs to the Promenade, casino and theater. The staff was great. The food was good and plentiful. The comedians were very good. The stage shows were ok. The ice show was very good. Overall we had a great time on the ship. We spent most of the days in the Solarium since we didn't bring the kids. It was peaceful and just what we needed. Were there kids on board? Yes. Did doors slam? Yes. Could the food in the Windjammer be better? Yes. We still found a way to enjoy ourselves. We found that the buffet items in the main dining room for breakfast and lunch were better than the Windjammer. It was also easier to find a seat and get good service. We got great value from the alcohol and non-alcohol drink packages. The internet worked well. The Flow Rider is great. The shop's prices were reasonable. Embarkation and Disembarkation were simple. Port Bayonne was easy to get into and out of. Overall, I'd take the Adventure and this itinerary any time and would be guaranteed a great time. Read Less

I love cursing with Royal Caribbean! Plenty to do for all ages, food is fantastic and I love the pools, hot tubs and water slides. The shows are wonderful, staff very accommodating and it's hard to resist such great tasting food. Online check-in makes everything run smoothly and no long waiting in lines upon returning. My luggage was there at port waiting and customs were a breeze. The captain and his staff all came out for the farewell show on our last night and shook everyone's hand as we were leaving. My cabin with balcony was the perfect place for reading my book, tanning, enjoying the sights at ports and just watching the moon and listening to the waves at night. I looked forward to each day and choosing the activities/shows I wanted to see and participate in. Our dinner waiters were the best and took great care of us. We couldn't have asked for a better cabin steward! Last year the same week we returned this years cruise was booked. Ready to plan my 2019 cruise now. Read Less

HThis cruise was very nice free style cruising.I enjoyed the time I spent on this cruise I had a amazing time.The food was amazing the shows were great there was something for everyone to do whether you enjoy the casino to the food an also the staff were very nice the pool was amazing because they also have a solarium for adults or people have to be 16 to get into that part.The food was good anyone could find something to eat.Also the shows were entertaining as well as the club on the 14 floor at night was very nice an you could dance all night long there if you wanted to. Overall I had a lovely time spending time on Royal Caribbean. The only thing I didn’t agree with is you have to pay for bottled water an the other cruise I have been on they made sure to keep you hydrated with bottled water regardless but I had amazing time.
