Adventure of the Seas

September 2015 - Adventure of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern

What an Experience!

This was our first cruise and it was an amazing experience!  From the moment we boarded the Adventure of the Seas in San Juan PR, to all the small islands we visited, to the time we returned back to San Juan 7 days later, it was top notch service!  We have talked with several people on the cruise and all of them said that Royal Caribbean was high class.  This cruise was catered to the older age group and everyone on board was mature.  All staff from the dinning room to the ones that took care of our room all deserve 5 Stars!  Room was spacious and clean.  Shows where amazing and very entertaining.  The only issue was when we were docked at an island, none of the shops on the ship where open.  Maybe this was to encourage everyone to shop at the port instead of on the ship?  Other than that, we will definetly be taking another cruise next year.Happy

charleshsmith1's Tips

Frederiksted, St. Croix, U.S.V.I. - Went to Christiansted Resort and laid out on the beach. Incredible blue water. Also did some shopping in Christiansted and learned the history of the island. Very interesting.
Bridgetown, Barbados - We enjoyed the island tour. Recommend going to the St John's Parish Church. One of the oldest churches in the Caribbean.
Castries, St. Lucia - Take the island tour that takes you to the volcano. Really enjoyed the tour guide and seeing the winding hills and mountains.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten - Was disappointed in the yacht excursion that took us to the Princess Juliana Airport where the plans where "suppose" to fly over the boat. The yacht ride was fun and the crew was great, but it would have been cheaper to take a taxi to the beach and eat at the Sunset Bar and Grill. We would have been a lot closer to the plans.
San Juan, Puerto Rico - Island is full of history. We went to the Arecibo Observatory for 1 day and then Old San Juan and forts on the day we boarded the ship. Wish we had more time for Old San Juan.
Adventure of the Seas Adventure of the Seas - Plan your shore excursions early because they fill up fast or each port will have taxis that can take you anywhere on the island. Bring clothing to dress up for evening activities. Professional pictures are taken every night and can be purchased the next day.
