Disappointing Cruise

Sail Date: May 04, 2008

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Suite

The ship is a beautyful looking ship. Instead of an atrium it has a huge "Main Street" with plenty of stores. For over 3,000 passengers there are not enough elevators. The goal of the cruise line seems to be to find many ways to get you to spend extra money. The ship's newspaper is not delivered to your room. You had to hunt for it upstairs in "business services". Sometimes they were out of the english language edition.

Pros: The entertainment and numerous activities

Cons: Food

Recommends Adventure of the Seas? No.

The buildings are beautiful. Stores and stands are v ery poor quality.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
The ship tries to keep you on the Dutch side of the island because that is where their "recommended" stores are. The French side uses Euros but there were many stores that were selling at 1 Euro equals $1.
Don't Miss: Marigaut. Take a taxi or one of the tours that lets you spend time there. Great crafts and restaurants.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Save your quality shopping for this port. There is plenty of it and at good prices.
Oranjestad, Aruba
Very good shopping. Nothing much else to see. Skip the casinos in town.
