Review SummaryThis is my third time sailing on Adventure of the seas. I love this Ship and this Itinerary. If you like activities and stops then this is the perfect cruise for you. I do have to say that the service and overall food has gone down. I wouldnt waste my time going to the formal dining room, unless its for breakfast. The service and food has gotten alot worse. The food in the windjammer buffet however has gotten better. If you strictly go for the food you may be dissapointed. If you love the beach, scenerary and excursions you must take this cruise. I would highly recommend booking excursions through Royal. You get what you pay for. The only exception is the Virgin Islands. The excursions arent very good. You are better off taking a cab to the beach, or enjoying the free beach walking distance from the ship. That is what I did last time. This time we booked a Catamaran on the Jolly mon and it was not very good. The rum punch was all punch no rum. The female captain took along time to park on the beach and woubd up parking to far from the beach, which made it difficult for tge older passengers to get on board. She also cut our beach time short by a half our so she could sell teeshirts. Epic fail. Aside from that the other excursions were awesome. We did the st Maarten beach break, the antigua kayak tour, the St Lucia segway tour, Ive also done the antigua lobster lunch cruise, both are amazing. In the past Ive done the barbados turtle catamaran. We wound up taking a cab to a local beach for only $5 per person, which was ok. Its easy to cab to a noce beach on Barbados, but if you have the money I would reccomend an excursion.
When booking your room, esoecially on this ship, book your room high up. It is very easy to leave the ship, and so convenient to be able to walk up to deck 11 were the pool, windjammer, and gym is. We stayed and deck ten near the front. It was so convenient to be able to quickly walk to the gym, pool, or windjammer.
My third time on this ship and tge food quality has gotten worse. The exception was tge windjammer and johnny rockets. Dont miss out on the steaks grilled to order and the stir fry. Breakfast buffet is mediocre. Skip the first line and walk straight in to tge omelet line. Grwat job givibg tickets for omeletts,oder it the hit the second kess crowded line
