Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

Our stateroom tenant was the best and the highlight of the trip. He had all the answers and was always there for you.

The guest services, waitstaff, and cruise director/staff were always clueless. THey were never able to provide the right information or assist. The night events weren't planned so both seating could attend the big events. For example: the art action, jewerly action, bingo ran late every time so 1st seating would get backed up.

Pros: islands except st croix

Cons: night time events on the board had poor planning, lack of knowledge by the staff

Recommends Adventure of the Seas? No.

Food and Dining
The selection of food was poor. Multiple times the food whether it was meat or seafood came out dry. Our waiter and his assistant couldn't get there act togehter. Some nights some of the guest at our able were not given bread. Getting drinks at times was impossible and forget having the water refilled. Once we filed a complaint on the 3rd day the head waiter tried to make things better but thing didn't improve.
Cabin / Stateroom
Some of the rooms suppposedly had a couch that could be turned into a bed, but its not true. We had to go and request a roll-away bed which did take up a lot of room.
The activites were poorly planned. There is nothing for the ages 23-34 to do. The jesters club always had the youngesters til crfew (eventhough the staff was suppose to kick them out at 11pm) and the much older crowd after. You will have bnetter luck of getting to do the activities if you have the late seating. THe only throughout day was the one day at sea.
Service and Staff
All were friendly, just not the most intelligent people on board. Some had no common sense.
Ship Quality
St. John's, Antigua

Don't Miss: Sneaky PEte's Beach
Castries, St. Lucia
The island realy didn't have any highlights. I guess you can say the markets.
Bridgetown, Barbados

Don't Miss: Boat Yard Beach
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Definitely an island you will want to go back to again!!
Don't Miss: best shopping of the trip, orient beach
Frederiksted, St. Croix, U.S.V.I.
barely any shopping, nothing to do on the island unless you do a tour which then there isn't much to see. Not worth getting of the boat for.
