7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 23, 2011
Ship: Adventure of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

This was my 1st cruise and it was great! I would say that 65% of the ship was over 50 years old and 98% of the people were couples, which was fun too. It was a great time, the food was great, the boat was clean, & the entertainment was fun.

Drinks were expensive, but being on vacation it was not a big deal. I do recommend not getting the soda package or maybe just cheating a little and only getting one instead of 2 packages.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Loved it all. We ate 6 out of 7 nights in the main dining hall. It was great! The buffet was, well, a buffet, good variety, great service & semi great food. Johnny Rockets was a fun alternative too.

We did the Pirate ship, the America's Cup sailing, and diving in St. Croix. Each was very memorable and super fun!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
No Americans on staff, but it didn't matter everyone was always smiling, always pleasant, and welcoming.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
We were in port with other ships and were able to talk to other people from there ships. Each person I talked to made me feel like I picked the right ship. I am thinking that the next time I cruise I will only be picking a Royal Caribbean ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

Can't say enough about having a balcony. Otherwise it was a cruise ship room, small shower/bathroom and all.

Walked around a bit, but felt like we had a sign over our head the said suckers and was approached by all kinds of swindlers.
