Adventure of the Seas

January 2017 - Adventure of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern

Adventure of the Seas Southern Caribbean Trip

I loved all of the trip, the destinations, cruise ship food, room, entertainment, etc.

There was always something to do on board the ship.  I loved the ice show and attended twice. All of the production shows were excellent.  I was not as excited about the hypnotist.  It was ok, about like that variety of show was years ago but more time now.  The fine dining was excellent and the servers assigned to us were top notch.  The room was kept very neat and clean by our steward who knew our names and was very cooperative and friendly.  Leaving and boarding the ship at any stop was never a problem and managing the paperwork before boarding the ship was painless with a fast moving line.  We did have a problem with our sea cards.  Getting on thAe ship for the 1st time the cards would not work, we were told due to a barcode issue.  A Royal Caribbean employee went to the 5th floor to make new cards.Then the 1st time we tried to deboard at St.Thomas we again had an issue with the cards.  This time we went to the 5th floor.  After that our cards worked flawlessly.  There was one other issue.  There were 7 of us who wanted to dine together so we visited the Sapphire area at floor 5 who put us together letting us know we would receive a note the next day about where and when to report to our assigned table.  The next day no note was received by any of the 7.  I checked with Sapphire again and was told all of us have a table on floor 3 at early dining.  Yes we enjoyed the time, great food, excellent service, and spending time together in the Sapphire.

We reported to Trivia and always enjoyed it, Beatles, Neil Diamond, Elvis, time on the beautiful promenade, just watching the water.  We should have checked out the miniature golf but never got there.

Thank you for the wonderful trip. I can go on and on!!

Norwegian Jewel

November 2016 - Norwegian Jewel to Mexico


Loved the cruise.  Food was great.  Best prime rib I've had in awhile at find dining.  I saw more of and talked with the hotel director more than any other cruise I've taken.  He is really a hands-on person in assisting his staff whenever he can.  The staff at Vallarta Adventures did and excellent job with our excursions.  The onboard activites were fun though I did not see any towel folding (may have missed it).

Norwegian Pearl

September 2016 - Norwegian Pearl to North America


Bouchart Garden was the favorite.  It changes with the time of year.  In the spring it was tulips.  In the fall its dahlias.  Its always a beautiful place to visit.

Norwegian Sun

August 2016 - Norwegian Sun to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska


For the 5 of us, this was a GREAT cruise, very memorable.  Weather was perfect for Sept.  Ports were great.  End of the season sales made clothing cheaper than I could buy it at home.  Saw lots of animals in their prime.  Salmon runs were a WOW to watch.  The Sun was very nice and our cabin steward (Vincent) was fantastic.  Will definitely try to do this one again.
