Best Cruise Yet

Sail Date: January 21, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

I rate this Ship the nicest I have been on so far. Would go again in a minute.

Pros: Very happy, contented Crew

Cons: Ankoring off Shore of Puerto Rico the last night. Very rough night without stabilizers going.

Recommends Adventure of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Very tasteful and fun decore. Very, very clean ship. I liked that a Crew Member stood at the Dining Room doors and made sure everyone used the Antibacterial Soap before they could enter. For such a huge Ship, it was an easy walk to everything.
Service and Staff
Cannot say enough about this. Always went above and beyond. Everyone seemed to understand that this was a Vacation and we all deserved to be cared for and relax. That was the atmosphere that they created for us.
Entertainment
The Shows were very good. There were lots of options all day long. We didn't partake in very many because we like reading out on deck andd playing Shuffle Board. My Husband used the Gym every morning and said it was a really nice one.
Food and Dining
Loved the Formal Dining Room. Also, if you decided to not go to the Formal Dining Room, the other Restaurants where really dressed up for dinner. Casual but with a more Home Dining feel. Very nice touch. Food was great with a huge selection at all times. The Coffee Shop, on the Prominade was a really nice touch. A great place to hang out for a while, any time of day. It offered Coffees, Teas, Cocoa, Pastries, Sandwiches and Pizza all day long. Never too crowded and no fees. We didn't do the Restaurants with cover charges because the regular Dining Rooms were so great. The Buffet Dining Room also had a Guitar or Piano Player each night and extra Service. It was lovely.
Cabin / Stateroom
We opted for an Inside Cabin this time. It was small, which we expected, but very efficient. We had 3 large suitcases and there was plenty of closet space, draws and shelves. Our room was on the 10th Deck and in the middle of the Ship. Very good spot. It was cared for beautifully, every day. Very happy with our Room and Steward.
The Bathroom was roomy with a really nice round shower. I heard some men complaining, including my husband, that they couldn't bend down to retreive the soap unless they openned the doors but I didn't have that problem. #1, I never dropped the soap and #2, I am 5 feet 1 inch tall.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
We once again rented a car and Toured the whole Island. Magnificent views around every bend. Beautiful Island. Been before on several occassions and never get sick of those views.
Don't Miss: Don't miss touring the Island, either on your own (It one road all the way around) or on a bus.
Curacao
Nice Island but a bit Industrial. We signed up for the Jewish Heritage Tour, to see the Oldest Temple in the Western Hemosphere. It was interesting but there were long periods of boring. The famous row of colorful biuldings near the Floating Bridge is very nice to see and was visable from the deck on Ship. We had a nive view of it.
Don't Miss: The Shopping area to see the colorful buildings. Nice place to walk around.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Another Island with magnificent views. We didn't rent a car here because the driving is on the left and the roads are treacherous. We did hire a private Taxi and our Driver, TJ, took us to places we never saw on a purchased Tour, the other times we'd been here. He also stopped at incredable views for as long as we wanted. It is a gorgeous Island. Don't miss any of it.
Don't Miss: Sapphire Beach and the famouse Lookout Points. Prepare to just calm down completey. It's so peaceful.
Oranjestad, Aruba
Love Aruba. I had been before, for a week, so we just rented a car and toured on our own. Very easy Island to get around. If you circle the Island, keeping the beach on the same side, it is a 2 1/2 hour trip and you will hit every attraction. We were back in Town by early afternoon, had a nice lunch and just walked around Town. We are not shoppers but, for those that are, there are plenty of nice stores.
Don't Miss: Baby Beach is beautiful.
