An excellent cruise

Sail Date: June 26, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

we were very impressed with the ship; the staff geniality; the cleanliness & responsiveness of crew.

Pros: the staff's responsiveness to our needs; the cordiality ==up to the staff supervisor (who wasn't above getting you a cup of coffee_also, the entertainment on board was exceptional; the vegas show production was spectacular; also, the small group entertainers==the violinist, guitarist; combo groups

Cons: not enough info regarding the drop offs on ports of call; especially Rome==had to take a train (l=1/2 hrs.) & then a cab just to get to the spanish stairs; it was an ordeal that we could have done without; as we had been to italy many times before.

Recommends Adventure of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
with so many passengers; the ship was well organized so everything went over well.
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
our room with balcony made us feel like we were on a floating hotel; it was great seeing the ports of call from our balcony. we even had breakfast in our room prior to a debarcation.
Service and Staff
the staff was the #1 amenity; we've been on other cruises but didn't have the international quality of hominess that the crew provided.
the las vegas show production & ice=sakting show & small groups, e.g. the calypso band @ the pool & even the library was helpful.
Children's Programs
the cruise offered something for everyone.;; we especially enjoyed the "My Time" dining option.
Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands
we also enjoyed this island.
Cagliari, Sardinia
although this was the main reason for taking this cruise; we were mostly disappointed by this island from all the ports of call.
Ajaccio, Corsica
we really enjoyed this island; the friendliness of the people & restaurant responsiveness
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
i would like to have been advised to not get off the ship ==it wasn't worth all the bother to get to rome==we were under the impression that we were goiing to be dropped off in the Vatican Area which didn't happen; if we were forewarned the inconvenience involved to get to rome center==we would have stayed on board; it was a wasted day.
