Review summary

First cruise with RCI and have been back many more times. After sailing on Cunard most recently we were refreshed with what RCI had to offer. Without doubt they have the happiest and friendliest crew at sea . Adventurer of Seas is a lovely ship noting in particular the ice ring with spectacular free ice shows and the promenade shopping with the cafe promenade open 24/7 serving drinks and light refreshments. This is located on deck 4 rather than go to deck 13 for the Windjammer. A great place to sit and watch the world and fellow passengers go by.The ships entertainment crew were zany and up for a laugh with a village people costume and 70/s revival event held there one evening much to everyones amusement.

Our cabin D2 superior had tea making facilities which was nice and a first on board a ship for us.Plenty of hanging space for long dresses, large 3 sofa sofa and under bed storage for suitcases. In room flat tv showing accounts updated immediatley when you spent on board which was great for keeping track of all your expenses.
