A Great Cruise

Sail Date: September 01, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The Adventures of the Sea is a beautiful ship with impressive Promenade several stories high. Pool areas and Solarium were wonderful with lots of lounge chairs available but were a bit crowded on sea days. The many varied activities available provided everyone with something to do. Loved the mini golf, rock wall, inline skating and ice skating. . . . The list goes on. And who ever heard of a ice rink in the middle of a ship??? The ice show was spectacular. Richard Spacey was a great cruise director. Such energy!!/ The Tribute to the Beatles was outstanding and enjoyed the other evening entertainment as well.

Dining and Personal Staff were wonderful and very attentive. Enjoyed the waiters singing for us on 2 occasions and always looked forward to returning to our stateroom at the end of the day to see what creative treat our personal staff had left for us. Might suggest that you offer a class on how to make the different animals that they created for us with towels.

This was an overall very good cruise and we met many nice people while on board. The experience will be definitely repeated in the near future.

Thanks for such a wonderful trip.

Pros: The staff and entertainers were great. Good itinerary and offshore excursions

Cons: Long wait for the elevators,

Cabin / Stateroom
The stateroom was clean and serviceable but was quite small. We found ourselves in each others way when trying to get ready to go out. Might suggest that the lights overhead in the sleeping area be on a different switch as the ones in the seating area of the stateroom so if someone was staying up later it wouldn't disturb the ones sleeping.
Ship Quality
We thought the ship was very clean and well laid out. However, did think that a snack area in or around the pool area would be an asset to catch a quick bite without having to dress up to go into windjammer or island grille. The wait for the elevators was a constant problem. Could be improved upon.
Food and Dining
Food was good and plenty of it. Liked the fact that you had some sugar free desserts available.
Service and Staff
Our personnel stateroom Wendall was outstanding. Seemed to always be nearby to handle whatever need we might have. Loved his special touch with creating animals out of the towels. Think instructions should be offered or printed up so we could try to do that at home. How about a course on it next time??
Children's Programs
No little children in our party, but did think that there was activities for all ages available on the ship. Was impressed with the rock wall, mini golf and inline skating and ice skating available.
Loved the ice show, the tribute to the beatles and the comedy show. Richard Spacey is a great cruise director. Also liked the Shopping information and only wished that I had taken advantage of it at the beginning of the cruise instead of half way through. Next time I will be looking for it at the start.
