  3. Adventure of the Seas
Just returned last night. 7 Days on Adventures of the Sea out of San Juan. Stops in Barbados, St. Lucia, Antigua, St. Maarten & St. Croix. This ship is 10 years old and in need of updates. Inefficient crew to passenger ratio. Overall service is fair. Too few room attendants. Too few wait staff. Too small public dining area (cafeteria) to accommodate 3300 passengers. Difficult to find seating at breakfast or lunch. Understaffed as well for evening dining in assigned dining rooms. Food quality poor in all aspects. NO onboard presentations regarding ports of call OTHER than recommended stores to visit in port. Do your own research before as their super slow internet service barely allows you to check your email for less than $10-15. (Takes 5 minutes just to log in - horrendous!!) ABSOLUTELY NO ONE ON DUTY IN THE BUSINESS CENTER E V E R !!!!! No hot water on several evenings. Only scalding hot water in room sinks on some mornings. 10 year old tv's in all rooms, with flat screens only available in some public bar areas. Poor management of 3300 passengers. Totally disorganized when embarking and disembarking. LOW quality shows in the theatre. Poor selection of movies offered. Few dining options with the public cafeteria dining not large enough to accommodate a boat of this large size. Little entertainment in the evenings other than bad shows in the theatre. No dancing other than partiesby the pool beginning at 11:30PM at night. BORING on many nights. POOR business center with no help available for internet service which was the slowest speed ever found in recent history on a cruise line. (Takes 10 minutes to access one's email, at a cost of 58 cents per minute.) At ports of call from 8:30 to 5:30, 4:30 some ports. Not enough time. On board contests? Oh yeah, they give the winner a pen? Not even a t-shirt? DO NOT RECOMMEND.

Cabin Review

Cabin
Cabin space was ample. Nice balcony. Old tv's. Beds not so comfortable. NO HOT WATER on THREE different evenings before dinner.

Too many rooms assigned to not enough people.

Food in their Windjammer Cafe was deplorable. Food in the fine dining room was horrible, both morning and evening. ONLY decent place to eat was JOHNNY ROCKETS, which charges a $4.95 service charge to eat there, IF you want to eat hamburgers and hot dogs every day. Unexcusable.

AVOID THIS SHIP - ADVENTURE OF THE SEA.
