December 2016 - Adventure of the Seas to Caribbean
Adventure of the Seas has been recently refurbished and it shows - nice kids pool area, waterslides, new carpet, etc. The crew - MDR, room attendants, bar waiters - were excellent as usual. The food in the MDR to good to very good (yes, we had lobster on the last night). The itinerary - St. Thomas, St. Kitts, Aruba, and Curacao is excellent. The ice shows are stronger than those seen on other ships. My disappointment was that Chops was not yet open, and the cruise director and her staff did not have the energy or apparent want to interact with passengers as I have experienced on other ships (which made events rather long and boring and actually made me avoid things I typically enjoy - the 70's show, Quest - as I didn't want to suffer through the lack of energy of the mistress of cerremonies). Overall a nice way to spend the Christmas holidays.
