November 2014 - Adventure of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern
Big ship, nice cabin, good food, suitable shopping but the PERKS were missing. This cruise seemed to be oriented towards a Hispanic clientele which, if intended, should have been emphasized. Meals were mostly average and repetitious for the most part. We saw no ice carvings, no floral arrangements and no carved fruits and vegetables - disappointed! Our first mission onboard was to have the sofa cushion in our cabin cleaned of some large stains of who knows what - YUCK! This was, however, attended to promptly. Our second mission was to have our table reservations corrected. Our party of four was seated at separate (and distant) tables even though all reservations were made under my name. After three attempts on my part, this was corrected but the promised notice of correction and table assignment was never delivered. I was finally advised verbally after constant persistence.We heard scuttlebutt that this was a major problem on our cruise and many parents had been separated from their dependent children. Dining sometimes dragged on for two hours causing us to miss some activities. Disembarking at the end of the cruise was delayed so long that we began to fear we would never get off in time to make our travel arrangements. Entertainment was sometimes lack-luster and attendance was minimal. This was not a bad cruise but it definitely lacked PERKS. This was our seventh cruise but our first cruise with RC. However, RC will not be first choice for our next cruise.
