Review SummaryWe recently sailed on the Adventure of the Seas and Royal Caribbean for the first time, and all I can say is "Wow!". The ship is very large, and we had no idea what to expect. Great restaurants, a fantastic pool areas, skating rink, rock wall climbing, casino and a nightclub. We really like Royal Caribbean's style, service, and the Adventure did not disappoint.
The Windjammer buffet really isn't a "buffet" anymore, now it's like a cool marketplace/food court with many more choices, stations you can approach from all sides (so no endless line!). Very wide-open and airy feeling, a huge step up from the typical ship buffet. We loved all the nightlife options and especially the night shows in The Lyric (we went to all of them). Felt like a totally different night out, every single night. The new Seattle's Best coffee shop and the new Ben and Jerry's didn't hurt, either! The ship features are most we've seen (we have sailed on NCL and Carnival, and this blows them away)
Our stateroom was cozy and had some new features (really liked the new shower 'door" vs the old curtains which always got the floor soaked). Lots of new storage elements have been aded, easy to unpack and fell like there was a place for everything. Overall we have to say the ship was really impressive, the staff was wonderful as always, and even if you've sailed on Adventure before, she's worth a second look.
