Quite a trip

Sail Date: February 01, 2010

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

The ship is very well laid out. Its the biggest one we've been on, and it felt the least crowded. It was not possible to participate in every availble activity.

Pros: Customer service on the ship

Cons: Hairpin turns on mountain roads

Recommends Adventure of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
This is the bigget area of concern. Portofino, the specialty restaurant was great. However, anything cooked on the breakfast buffet was mediocre, at best. The same stuff was also served in the main dining room. Dinners were better but not great.
Ship Quality
You can tell the ship has been around a while, but it is very well maintained. We experienced none of the plumbing and elevator issues mentioned in other reviews we've seen.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a junior suite and it was far better than other balcony rooms we've had before. You get all the amenities you would get in a good hotel room, and the balcony was terrific: three chairs (one a recliner) and a table. The room was full of closets and drawers. Our four large suitcases didn't use more than half the space. It had a walk-in closet with shelves.
Service and Staff
The stateroom attendant , waiter and head waiter were fantastic. Others on board were also very helpful. RCL must have a terrific training and recruitment program.
Mercedes, the cruise director was fun. They had an act, the Scintas, who were headliners in Las Vegas when we visited in the past. Their show was great,but the best thing was their friendliness. We saw them several times on the ship. A highlight of the cruise, for us, was when they joined the singer at the piano bar to sing several songs, and banter (and drink) with the folks in the bar.
