Pluses and Minuses of the 7 day Caribbean Cruise

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

One of my favorite parts of the cruise was the diversity of the passengers.

 

Since I'm a huge sports fan I enjoyed having a TV in my stateroom to watch any of the post season college football games of my choice without any distractions.

 

I also enjoyed visiting five different ports.

 

I enjoyed the size of the ship, it felt like a "hotel on water".

 

The ship staff were great, especially my stateroom attendant.

 

The Promenade Café was a hit with my wife and I.  We loved having the ability to have a snack pretty much any time of the day or night.

 

We also liked having soft serve ice cream anytime throughout the day or evening.

 

Several things need improvement.  The Windjammer restaurant needs to have a major overhaul of their menu.  There were "TOO" many days with the same food offerings. That was very disappointing.

 

The evening entertainment was very disappointing as well.  There needs to be more entertainment geared toward adults, more shows; comedy; musicals; etc.

 

It would be nice to have more shops to explore on board.

 

Since this was a "New Years" cruise, do not have the cruise celebration (almost immediately when passengers board the ship).  Plan better.

 

When we disembarked from the ship the luggage area was very confusing because not everything was marked to find our luggage.

 

Also, the taxi service was a disaster and very confusing once the cruise ended.  Please be more organized.  There was very little signage for taxi service. Have one designated area for taxi's that are taking passengers to hotels and another for those going to the airport.

The customer service in all areas were excellent, from housekeeping to room service, rests and shops.  The food variety was not the best, it could be better...

This ship is fabulous, great customer service, amazing food and the ports were all wonderful. I really liked the fact that there was only one day at sea, this allowed us to get out and experience a new place everyday.

Enjoyable week

Adventure of the Seas has been recently refurbished and it shows - nice kids pool area, waterslides, new carpet, etc. The crew - MDR, room attendants, bar waiters - were excellent as usual. The food in the MDR to good to very good (yes, we had lobster on the last night). The itinerary - St. Thomas, St. Kitts, Aruba, and Curacao is excellent. The ice shows are stronger than those seen on other ships. My disappointment was that Chops was not yet open, and the cruise director and her staff did not have the energy or apparent want to interact with passengers as I have experienced on other ships (which made events rather long and boring and actually made me avoid things I typically enjoy - the 70's show, Quest - as I didn't want to suffer through the lack of energy of the mistress of cerremonies). Overall a nice way to spend the Christmas holidays.

The staff onboard MAKES the EXPERIENCE

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The best part of the cruise was the staff onboard. This goes from the room attendant, Owen to the dining room staff, Junior, Lena, Gerald, Dewa as well as the maitre'd Anthony and Devan, also included are the sport activity staff, i.e. Jade, Joao, Callum, Ali and Angeline.

The staff are always there to serve and will do anything to make the trip more enjoyable. This is particularly true for the dining staff, especially Gerald who was very helpful in recommending dinner items as well as  bringing an alternative meal. Anthony surprised us one night with a great chicken tikka masala because we mentioned that we enjoyed the Indian dinner at the windjammer  - incredible.

 

As for the sports staff that has to deal with the Flowrider. They were the best. Rain or shine they are there patiently coaching the passengers. The three that stood out the most for me were Joao, Angeline and Callum who took time to coach me through the stand up surf and also the boogie board. Had a great blast on that!!! Best entertainment so far.

 

The other entertainment was okay. However a few of the events that was hosted by Connie, were pretty good since she made most of the experience fun. This included Trivia to dances. I am surprised that the night club experience is lacking this time compared to when I was on the Mariner of the Sea a few years back where there were multiple dance area. This time, it seemed that only the Moon bar was the only place to dance.

 

Another experience that made is all worth while was the chef's table. There was some error in the handling of our dining for two and the ship crew accidentally booked us on the Chef's Table for the last night. It was a good experience but way too much alcohol which I could hardly even consume half of it. But the quality of the food and the pairing of the wine was just exquisite. Also the table attendant and the chef took time to explain what we were eating which made for a wonderful experience.

 

Generally great experience on the ship. General buffet (windjammer) food was slightly below par but for an everyday lunch meal it was okay. However it could be enhanced by better dessert selection since most of the desserts were mousse based.

 

Will definitely be coming back. Once again a shout out to all the staff members on the Adventure of the Seas - we will be back!

worst company ever

I had no favorite part because my son was born in Puerto Rico and they decided to replace there birth certificates. Well we were not aware of this so he was told even though he had his original certificate that he was not able to board. I spoke to my travel agent who was not aware of this. Royal Caribbean is the worst. There director told me its my fault I should have known. No where on their website does it say anything about this issue. 

Go to carnival or one of the other cruise line that actually care about their guests.

This was our second time sailing on Adventure of the seas, the first time was in July 2003 when the ship was nearly new. I like the Adventures layout better than any of the other ships i have sailed upon, of which there are many. She is still in great shape, they have kept everything top notch. The service is very good. However the food quality has taken a dive, specifically with the sea food and deserts. I ordered several seafood dishes including shrimp cocktail, clams, fish of the day, etc. they all had an overly fishy flavor, the deserts nearly alll are a pan style pudding and the souffle I had was not fresh, it had a thick skin on top. The premium restaurant Giovanni's was super Fantastic, specifically the pasta, best i have ever had. The ports of call were good however, Saint Kits is quite lacking, a sea day would be preferable. Saint Martin, Saint Lucia, Antigua are my favorites.

The Hot tubs in the adult pool area are quiet and not busy in the evenings! Grab a free icecream cone by the main pool during the afternoon!

My tip: go to the sauna and the steam room as much as you can. Both are free and make you feel great.
