February 2015 - 7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip) Cruise on Adventure of the Seas
The islands visited were wonderful, full of pleasant and helpful people with beautiful things to see and fun things to do. Because of that this cruise was very good. My disappointments were with the ship and ship board activities. Disappointments: #1 the food in the buffet (Windjammer)- the breakfast buffet was bad. The eggs reminded me of the eggs we got at boy scout camp, army surplus quality; the biscuits and gravy were the worst I have ever had; like hockey pucks with watery soup with bits of yesterdays left over sausage links for gravy. The Windjammer closes early, and when it is closed the only food available is down on the promenade, so if you are up on deck in the evening you have to go to the belly of the ship to find something to eat, or go to Johnny's where you have to pay for the food. Oh and if you are a fan of the midnight buffet forget it. Other ships have had food up on deck seemingly 24 hrs/day; pizza, burgers, hot dogs, etc, not this ship. #2 Music- for some reason they put their music in the middle of crowded, noisy, busy venues (such as the middle of the promenade) where it is impossible to enjoy, and in many cases there is no where to even sit to listen. #3 Dancing- if you like to dance on a cruise, find a different ship. Only once during the week were we able to find dance music in a venue that had a dance floor or any room to dance.
Don't get me wrong it was a very good cruise, but next time I will do it on a different ship.
