Adventure of the Seas

July 2016 - Adventure of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern

Overall was a very good time.

This was our second time on this ship and itinerary (7 day Southern Caribbean from San Juan). Overall was a very good time. The dining room experience was great. The food was very good and the service was great. We always felt that we were being taken care of. Our cabin (inside-promenade view) was great. At first we were a little reluctant to book inside but we needed 2 connecting rooms and it worked out great for our party of four. The kids had their own room and bathroom all for less than an outside balcony room with us crammed in together. The ship is very nice and clean but a little bit dated. One complaint was the lack of any real structured programs for the 14-17 yr old kids. They basically were on their own on the ship. One other complaint was that the music at poolside the entire trip was Latino. I'm all for Latino music but the entire cruise? last complaint was the free cruise bingo giveaway was way too disorganized and they ran out of electronic boards for the overflow crowd.

Don't get me wrong, this was a fun time overall and I would recommend this itinerary and the Adventure of the Seas for sure.

TSF's Tips

Castries, St. Lucia - Finally anchored at a different port that was modern and clean. Last cruise was horrible in port.
Basseterre, St. Kitts - The dolphin encounter was very fun for the kids. The Kayaking and snorkel trip requires 2 things: (1) you better to be ready to paddle a kayak FAR!!! It's a long 2 mile kayak trip I loved it but my family wasn't happy. (2) you better be ready to flipper your way to a snorkel spot FAR!!!! from the beach. I brought my own equipment but they had everything you needed including flippers. I felt like I was swimming for ever though. Still a great time and the crew was great. Their little beach buffet afterwards was interesting and a tasty treat of local fruit and cake.
Bridgetown, Barbados - Have fun on the beach getaway but keep your stuff close and don't be distracted by the roving beach vendors . Jet ski rentals at the restaurant desk instead of the beach vendors are your best bet. Be prepared to walk like a half mile down the beach to where they launch them though.
San Juan, Puerto Rico - Stayed pre-trip at the Embassy Suites (don't recommend) not very clean/needs updating/location isn't the greatest. Stayed post-trip at Marriott Stellaris Casino(recommended) was clean/staff was very friendly/location is great with beach/fun time at bar and casino. Also, buy your duty free booze in the San Juan airport on your way home. Better deals than the ship or other ports
