  3. Adventure of the Seas
This cruise consisted of back to back cruises that went to the eastern and western caribbean. The ice show was very good with some of the best jumps I have seen at sea. The cast seemed really into it. The production shows were mostly good but some of the cabaret acts were not. The hypnotists were really not believable and the act seemed rehearsed. The piano player in the Schooner bar was truly bad. The entertainer in the pub was too loud to have a conversation and could even be heard in the promenade facing cabin! Food and service in the main dining room was good, but the windjammer buffet was not an inviting space. Recent remodeling has made this much too hard and too over lit. Everything is white. Loud music, even at early morning breakfast, made this a space to avoid. Who wants loud music at 7:00 am or at dinner when you are trying to hold a pleasant conversation. Even the pool deck in the early morning had overly loud music, even though there were only a few people there having early morning coffee. Usually you can get the same things offered in the main dining room in the buffet, but not on this ship. Deserts were very poor. The line for pizza by the slice was often long. Entertainment in the Royal Promenade was often so loud you had to seek a place where you get away from it instead of staying to watch. Apparently Royal Caribbean believes that if the sound level isn't ear splitingly loud you cannot be having enough fun. They are wrong.
