Adventure of the Seas

Our first time here. We did the All West Beach Hopping tour with Irie Tours and had a great time. Our ship arrived 2 ours late due to medical evacuations, but they were waiting for us at the pier and still gave us the full tour. We visited several beaches and interesting sights and there were only 12 of us on the full size bus, so we each had our own row. We were able to snorkel at 3 different sites, including snorkeling with turtles.
This was our first time here and some of the best snorkeling we have done anywhere. We did the afternoon tour with Woodwind Catamaran and it was excellent. We stopped at 2 locations for 35-40 minute of snorkeling each time, and were provided with drinks and great food as well. The number of people onboard was limited, so it never felt crowded.
This was our first visit here as well. What we saw of the island looked very nice. We rarely book excursions through the ship, but did book the DePalm Island excursion prior to boarding the ship since they offered a discount. There was an issue with the booking once on board that they finally got resolved after contacting the shore side office. The meeting location, communication and organization for the tour were very poor and chaotic. DePalm Island itself was fine and offered great snorkeling, all-inclusive food & drink, loungers and more. I would go to DePalm Island again if I was staying in Aruba, but would not book as a ship excursion again due to the disorganization of finding he tour departure area and relatively short time we actually had on the island (approx 4 hours) after allowing for travel time.

Make sure to check-in online ahead of time to speed up the boarding process. The Royal Caribbean app is also very helpful for viewing menus, activities, deck plans, etc.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
This was my 3rd time to this port and 2nd time to go to Maya Chan. It was a great day, as expected, and nice to see my name as a returning guest next to the chairs reserved and ready just steps away from the ocean, pool and restrooms. I was welcomed with a drink, chips, salsa and fresh guacamole. The servers made sure all of my needs were met. The lunch was fantastic. There was some sea grass washing ashore, but workers did their best to keep it raked away and it did not seem to interfere with anyone’s enjoyment of the day.
Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
This was my 3rd time to Mahogany Bay, but the first time to just stay at the port and use the beach. We were the only ship in port, so the beach was never crowded, with maybe 15% of the loungers ever occupied at one time. The weather was perfect and I had a great lunch of jerk chicken, rice & beans and plantains for only $ 9.00.
Santo Tomas De Castilla, Guatemala
This was my 3rd time to this port and I enjoy it because it isn’t commercialized with the typical shops and bars. I have done a tour of the Rio Dulce and Livingston in the past with Happy Fish. This time I was on a solo cruise and booked a day pass to Amatique Bay Resort through the cruise line. It was a First Class resort with a great beach, waterslides, amazing pool with a swim-up bar and reasonable drink and food prices. Frozen drinks were $ 5 US, burger and fries was $ 10 and bottled water was $ 2.
Key West, Florida
I booked an afternoon snorkeling excursion with Sebago tours and loved it. I saw 2 of the largest sharks I have seen in over 30 years of snorkeling. The sale back with drinks included was relaxing.
Embarkation and debarkation were the fastest of any cruise I have been on. I did self-assist when departing and left my cabin at 7:30 and using Lyft was at the airport by 8:05.
