Adventure of the Seas

October 2015 - Adventure of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern

Expecting More...

We loved the cruise and the itinerary with the many islands, and the service was very good, but there were some shortcomings.   For instance, every day, after arriving back on the boat, there was always a long line and wait for the buffet, and the staff would never open the other side of the buffet to relieve congestion.   Also, there was never any food served on the pool area level, such as we have seen on other cruises, so the only option was the buffet.   Additionally, the buffet never had any ketchup (must have been a shortage), and the staff would always point you to other possible places where ketchup was available (this happened daily).   The ice cream that was available on the pool area deck was never cold, and they would only turn 1 of the 3 available options on (vanilla, chocolate, or mix) at any one time....so the machine was always trying to catch up.   The overall food was good, but I have had better food on other cruises, and was not impressed.   The pool area deck had limited entertainment as well (I only seem to remember music there on the last day, while at sea).   The ship is very nice, including a very nice inside promenade and adult swim area.   I only saw one show, in the promenade area, and always seemed to miss shows in the theater...and I think that was because there may have been only one show per night...hard to say.    I would take this cruise again, but mostly for the great itinerary.

Adventure of the Seas Adventure of the Seas - If you head off the ship during the day, get back early to beat the crowds at the buffet, which is the only available food option (besides Johnny R, that's are additional fees), and the line builds quickly.
