Review summary

The Adventure of the Seas was so impressive. From the minute we stepped on board we were blown away at the quality and condition of the ship. Even given that it's 14 years old it was immaculate. The ship has great amenities, the pool area was very nice, ice skating was a fun addition, the live music on board was spectacular and because a lot of the passengers are from Puerto Rico there is a fun vibe, lots of dancing.

We were travelling with a 4 year old and a baby so got a family oceanview room. It was right at the front of the ship so a little rocky a night but the room was huge, great condition, new flat screen TV, tonnes of storage. We couldn't have asked for anything better.


The staff on board were incredible. Five star service all the way! Everyone seemed genuinely happy to be working on board the ship. Our dining room waiter was amazing. Our cabin attendant did a great job keeping our space clean and tidy.


Food on board, I can't say enough about how good it was!!!! Casual dining in the Windjammer cafe always had some favourites and some things that were different each day at lunch. Breakfast in the Windjammer cafe was the same each day but a lot of choice. Be sure to eat in the dining room on your sea day as the lunch there was really good too. Dinner each night was phenomenal!!! We ate like kings!!! Three courses, plenty of choice on each menu. Different items every night or you could choose from classics.


If you are after a cruise that goes to lots of ports this is a great one to choose. As you see five different stops along the way. St Lucia was definitely our favourite!

Our son didn't enjoy the Kids Club, we didn't feel the staff were that caring.

Somanath in the dining room was our waiter each evening and did a wonderful job! Lulu in the Windjammer cafe was always so friendly each day. Our room attendant Romeo did a great job keeping our cabin tidy and clean.

Outstanding. Newly upgraded tech like the poolside big screen, flat screens in the room etc.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Very spacious, great layout with a bunkbed nook for kids worked well. Right at the front of the ship which did make it a little rocky at night but happy to sacrifice that to gain the extra space. No balcony but two large portholes. We preferred not to have a balcony as had small children with us.
