Adventure of the Seas

April 2016 - Adventure of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern

Amazing Islands but buyer beware

Every cruise has highlights and not-so-great moments.  On board, the Murder Mystery Dinner was lots of fun and I had one of the best fillet mignon I've ever had.  The cafeteria still dining worked well for us for breakfast and lunch.  The Dining room cuisine was hit or miss - too much salt, not enough spices. Room staff and wait staff wre al very nice.

 Enjoyed the movies under the stars, mini-golf,and rock climbing wall, ice show.

We went on several excursions - the Spices and Sunshine tour on Grenada was marvelous- best transport and driver, expert guides througha spice and herbal botanical garden and lovely stop at Radisson beachfront.

Snorkeling at Buck Isand was very nice- good boat and crew, well informed guides, lots of sea turtles.  On St Lucia, the venue- PItons was awesome but the snorkel gear was sketchy and no guides while in the water.  On Antigua, we had a very disppointing RC beach excursion - paid way too much for a ride to a mediocre location where we had to pay for everything a a carte - chairs, umbrella, drinks. No food avaiable.  The description in the xcursion guide was very misleading and RC was very reluctant to refund us.

 

Make sure you take time to enjoy Puerto Rico! there's much to offer in the way of great food, beautiful architecture, history and nature, beautiful beaches and more.
