June 2016 - Adventure of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern
Just a quick review of our time on the AOS. We had a good time with only one real complaint, but overall a great ship and crew aboard the AOS. Embarkation (San Juan): This is our only real complaint for the entire trip. We arrived at the port about 1:40 PM the day of embarkation and found the staff to be overwhelmed and alot of confused people left to fend on their own to try and figure out what was going on. The staff was non-caring and appeared to be clueless about the procedures. Heard and saw plenty of shrugs and I don't care attitudes from the staff. But our fellow passengers were very polite and saved the day for those that had not been to SJ before. Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, and St Marteen: We enjoyed all the ports of call, but Bonaire was our favorite, the people were friendly and the island was gorgeous. The Ship: She was very well maintained and spotless with a great crew to boot. The Food: We ate at the MDR for all meals except the formal nights and found the food and service (VJ and Peter were the best) very good. The Windjammer had a great variety of food that was flavorful and good. Shows: We attended most shows but only stayed for the Motown Show, these guys were really good. The rest...ehhh not so much. Voom Internet: Bought at pre-cruise price, reception throughout the ship, speed was about what an old ISDN line would be, not great but at least good enough to Facebook and check email. Overall we had a great time and would recommend the cruise and ship to all.
