Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

We found the ship to be clean while in need of carpet replacement (they were trying to get this done as a matter of fact, during our sailing). The ship offers many areas in which to relax and or to get lost...the lounge/bar areas are comfortable and they provide soothing music. The gym is positioned at the rear and walking on the treadmill while in motion is quite a challenge however, the spa area with the wet and dry steam room is a real actually feel like you're away in an upscale spa..very nice. A bit about the guests that board from Puerto Rico...if you're looking to spend a relaxing, not so loud vacation on a ship, DON'T board in Puerto Rico. The majority of the guests were from the island and while it's wonderful to see folks having a good time, it's not so great when they impose their energy onto others...for example, they were loud in the elevators, the dining room, hallways, hot tubs, spas, everywhere! Why must anyone yell when the person they're speaking to is right next to them? I'm of Hispanic descent so no, I'm not prejudice, I just happen to have manners and know the difference between a back yard BBQ, and a cruise ship.

Pros: Our Dinner Servers

Cons: Rude Guests, Rude Staff, Terrible Food

Recommends Adventure of the Seas? No.

Food and Dining
The quality of the buffet line food is a C+, at best. Eat in the dining room whenever possible; the food is better.
Service and Staff
There were three people that made our trip special; the two servers at dinner and the bar tender. Other than the three, we encountered rude staff who were less than willing to help and instead told you who to chase down in order to get some type of help!
Ship Quality
Decor is nice and the public restrooms were always clean.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a Jr. Suite. The balcony size was very comfy. We had a small walk in closet and plenty of drawers. The shower walls had mildew and needed to be better cleaned.
They had the group, Mosaic on board. They're amazing but we were extremely disappointed when we popped the $15 dollar CD into our computer and it only had about 17 minutes of music, total! It was a challenge to get a refund. We were told that the group had already gotten off of the ship and they could not refund us the money...WHAT? We paid with our ship card, not cash! They approve the sales of merchandise so I was of the opinion that the ship then needs to take responsibility for the lack of quality of the product...after going back and forth for about 10 minutes, we were refunded our money...what a challenge.
