We booked our first cruise through and chose Royal Caribbean for a seven day cruise of the eastern Caribbean islands. Royal Caribbean has a good reputation among several of our retired friends, We flew into San Juan from Minneapolis three days early on January 8th to get some time to visit Puerto Rico for the first time. After three enjoyable days, we boarded the "Adventure of the Seas" ship at 4pm on the first day of the cruise. We traveled overnight, the next day, and overnight again to Barbados. We used RCI shore excursions on Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Maartens, and St. Croix. They were all good to excellent. We hired our own taxi in Antigua to take us to sights and that worked out well too.

The food and service on our ship was great. We thoroughly enjoyed our morning and evening meals in the main dining room. We ate lunch and one breakfast in the Windjammer Buffet as well. The selection and quality was good. We also really enjoyed the entertainment on the ship: the evening shows and the musicians that played at various venues. An added plus was an ice rink with skate rentals, and an excellent ice show. Since I still play hockey, it was fun to skate there.

We had a great first cruise experience, and are now convinced it is a fun alternative way to travel.

It was very comfortable and easy to live in for a seven day trip. It was small, but very efficiently arranged. Good hot showers in the morning.

Ship Tip

It's an excellent ship for a cruise.
