Review summary

Totally awesome! This was our fifth cruise in 4 years and our first 7-night cruise on Royal Caribbean. After being (we thought) was spoiled by another cruise line, we were unprepared to shift our alliance and loyalty to RCL, but The Adventure of the Seas was by-far the most wonderful ship we could ever imagine to sail on. The Promenade gave us the true feel of Paris, the theatre gave us a flare of Vegas, Johnny Rockets brought back warm memories, etc.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Having become accustomed to a free-style type dining on another line, we decided to have the early seating in the dining room (which was unbelieveable - 3 stories high). We enjoyed having our own table, waiter, assistant waiter and head waiter. They immediately knew what we liked to drink, when we wanted our coffee and always called us by our first names.

Of course with every cruise there is unlimited activities and you simply cannot do everything you want to do in 7 days. However, our Cruise Director, Richard Spacey, was so talented and funny, so we are glad we took in everything he was a part of. On our last evening show, he had made a film of "What your Cruise Director really does in 24 hours". I wish everyone could see this as it was the funniest skit we have ever seen.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our dining room waiter, Rommel from Phillipines, was such a joy and we immediately felt at ease with him. He was always cheerful, helpful and very professional. His assistant, Ardeth from Colombia, was so precious we wanted to bring her home with us.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Even though this ship was one of RCL's largest, we never once felt crowded. The staff was always cleaning and polishing and even the restrooms were never in need of any services.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The only thing we would have changed about our balcony cabin was that we were on the 6th deck which meant our balcony did not have the full plexiglass which would have given us a better view of the ocean. The 6th deck is part of the structure of the ship. Our cabin (#6586) was in the center of the ship which gave us better access to anywhere we wanted to go on the ship.

Pros: The Adventure of the Seas is the most gorgeous cruise ship we have ever sailed on and her staff was remarkable in every way....friendliness, helpfulness and sincerity.

Cons: That it had to end.
