Great cruise

We flew into San Juan the night before and were able to get on the ship early and easy.  The ship was very nice and had many things to enjoy.  The food did not seem quite as good as prior cruises on RC but it was still good and we ate plenty.  I did like that this ship had actual wash bowls before you enter the buffet area which I think might keep the norovirus at bay.  I've had that before and it is not good.  Our room was nice and seemed to have lots of storage.  We did all the excursions on our own.  All in all--a very pleasant and relaxing trip with great beaches to enjoy!

Adventures of the Sea Cruise

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

This was a very nice cruise.  We did have one issue with our stateroom.  The bathroom had a terrible urine odor that was so over powering.  We reported this right away and the ship crew tried everything to get this smell out.  After 5 days they were finally able to clear out the smell.  We did stay out of our room most of the time but would have liked to enjoy the balcony a bit more the first 5 days. 

We feel they did not compensate us enough for this horrible inconvenience for this odor.  We were given 15% off our next cruise to use within a year.  Found out later that our friend has one issue for one day and received 20% off their next cruise.  very disappointed in this part of the service.  

 

On another note, this was a lovely ship, service was great, food was very good and we did enjoy our time.  Just wish we did not have to endure that horrible smell in our room for 5 days.

We enjoyed everything about this cruise -- the ship was beautiful and very clean,, our balcony room very comfortable, our room steward the greatest, food was delicious, our wait staff exceptional, entertainment fantastic and on-board activities plentiful.  The Dream Vacations excursions were fun,informative and very affordable.  The islands we visited were some of the best we have ever encountered. We have no complaints, just praise!

The cruise was fabulous. They sure know how to take care of their passengers. The ports were just as great. It's a great way of getting a glimpse of places you'd like to go back to. The amazing things we saw. Staff on board have tremendous customer service skills and treat you like your their only passenger. Really impressed w the customer service. The ship itself is unreal. So much to see and do.

The full experience of just knowing everything was taken care of for us. From morning to night.  For our breakfast, lunch, dinner and entertainment or relaxation. There was something to do or not if we so choose. We could play, exercise, dance, listen to music, watch a show, play a game, surf, ice skate, eat a wonderful meal with our wonderful servers. Then retire to a refreshened well made bed and bathroom.

We enjoyed the heavy, port itenerary. Staff was always friendly, helpful and welcoming. Dining experience at Chefs Table and Giovanni's was a little disappointing but did not spoil our trip.

1st time royal cruiser

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I've been on 7 cruises and this is my first time on Royal Caribbean. The,food quality Iwas better but not the night entertainment. I like the comedians better on Carnival. The singers and dancers were comparable between all the cruise ships from Costa to Holland America to Carnival and this. Thesee were some of the nicest ports from the beach to shopping and snorkeling. The coffee was excellent and bold. If you are debating on getting the coffee package don't.  Service varied and the drinks didn't always come out tasting correct.

Overall great vacation! As usual the crew staff were generally friendly and helpful. I gave three stars for a few different reasons. It could be that it has been a few years since I have cruised with RC or it could be that the ship is now considered 'older', i am not sure. I was somewhat disappointed with the food, some of the staff service, and overall quality of the ship. It wasn't exactly as I remembered a fews year back. I always remembered the staff being overly friendly and entertainment being excellent. I couldn't say this was the case this time. It's the little things that add up and matter. We didn't receive any mints on our pillows at night, we only saw and spoke to our ship room attendant once (7 day cruise), only received towel animals twice, shows were lacking in quality (there was 1 excellent one though) and just overall not as high morale. Ice cream machine hours were limited, activities on the ship were randomly closed or out of order, etc. It was stuff like this that put a little damper on the trip. That being said we still had a great time! The cruise itself was busy with 5 different ports so we were at port mire than we were at sea. My next cruise I think I will aim to go on one of the newer ships and see if it RC quality that has decreased in general or if it simply that Adventure of the Seas is now an 'aged' ship.

Disappointed

I was disappointed at the quality of entertainment on the Cruise as well as the customer service.  Since the Line charges your tips to your sea pass, there seems to be no incentive for the staff to provide better service.

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.

Get a balcony on the 7th floor. Perfect location.
