July 2015 - 7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip) Cruise on Adventure of the Seas
Some Great Some Awful
This was my first cruise and I was very excited because I heard so many great reviews about Royal Caribbean ship & food selection. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed with 2 things in particular, the rooms and the food. I am not not at all a picky eater, but I could not stomach most of it. Almost everything was disguisting. Dinner was better than the buffet, but still mediocore (my waitor and server were great though). I actually lost weight on the trip because of this. I waited everyday to eat on the islands. The ship was absolutely beautiful, I just wish the rooms matched everything else. It was extremely small, gloomy, and outdated. I felt like I was stepping into a dirty motel. Maybe this is intentional so ppl won't stay in them. IDK. The islands were beautiful and I loved waking up to a new place everyday and if you decided to stay on the ship, there is always something scheduled to do (which I loved). The kids program seemed to be ok, I wish they would let the young children out of the playroom and into the kiddy pool area, but I guess there may not be enough staff to ensure the safety of every child that may attend. Next time I cruise I will have to get a much bigger cabin with a window and I pray the food will be better.
