7 Night Western Mediterranean (Malaga Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 21, 2012
Ship: Adventure of the Seas
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 5 years ago

We booked an owners suite as a huge splurge for our family summer vacation. we did this thinking we would have childcare for our two children while onboard. Although royal Caribbean advertises a childcare nursery for guests 2 and under they do not have one on Adventures of the Seas. Major problem! Our only option was in room babysitting which costs $19/hour. We complained and they did give us a $200 credit. The vacation cost us over $5000 so I really don't feel like $200 is enough to compensate for the fact that this vacation was not what we thought it would be. Huge BUMMER! Also the suite concierge was confusing and frankly arrogant not a huge help when your dealing with this kind of fowl-up.
