Adventure of the Seas Overview

By Cruiseline.com

Designed with the active traveler in mind, Royal Caribbean’s Adventure of the Seas offers a wide variety of innovative onboard experiences. From its signature rock-climbing wall, which towers 200 feet above the ocean, to its 9-hole miniature golf course, this Voyager-class ship appeals to vacationers looking for a cruise experience jam-packed with action and excitement. Thrill seekers can get their hearts pumping on the dual-racing waterslides or catch a wave in the surf simulator, then rejuvenate with a relaxing session in the ship's full-service Vitality spa or indulge in the luxurious champagne bar.

Having first set sail in November 2001, Adventure of the Seas remains one of the larger ships cruising today, measuring over three football fields long. In January 2018, Adventure underwent an extensive revitalization. The month-long refurbishment added new staterooms, a VIP Suite Lounge and the Izumi restaurant, which serves Japanese cuisine and sushi. Coming up in 2021, Adventure of the Seas is scheduled for additional modernization through Royal Caribbean’s $900 million Royal Amplified effort, which will create additional amenities, such as an escape room, laser tag, and Sky Pad, a virtual reality trampoline experience.

The ship now boasts 1,557 staterooms, supporting up to 3,114 passengers. Many of its staterooms include ocean views, and over a third have private balconies where cruisers can enjoy the salt air. With home ports in New Jersey, Fort Lauderdale, and Quebec City, Adventure of the Seas offers cruises with stops in the Caribbean, Bermuda, and Eastern Canada, depending on the season. The Caribbean itineraries also feature Royal Caribbean's exclusive Perfect Day at CocoCay, which allows travelers to customize their onshore experience on Royal Caribbean’s popular private island.

Best For

Families with teens and older kids, energetic couples, and extroverted multigenerational families are the best fit for this active at-sea experience.

What to Know

Adventure of the Seas is actually somewhat “small” compared to newer Royal Caribbean ships, but it may be difficult to find a quiet, out-of-the-way spot with over 3,000 passengers on board. And while you can lounge around the pool all day on a Royal Caribbean ship, Celebrity and Princess ships are better for low-key cruisers who don’t need rock-climbing walls or surf simulators.

As I have mentioned before the Adventure of the Seas is a perfect sized ship. I have been on the larger ships and they are not for me. This was my 13th cruise, all with Royal Caribbean and I have not plans to 'jump ship' except to maybe to try a Celebrity/

The Hot tubs in the adult pool area are quiet and not busy in the evenings! Grab a free icecream cone by the main pool during the afternoon!

My tip: go to the sauna and the steam room as much as you can. Both are free and make you feel great.
