Not WOWED by RCCL Adventure of the Seas

Sail Date: September 05, 2015

Reviewed: 11 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship is old and dated. Food and soft drinks no better than cheaper cruise lines. The theater shows were a big disappointment. Smaller lounges with singing, sports bar, comics but little seating. The coffee was really bad but could purchase better coffee. No view under balcony hand rail on deck 6, also no air flow due to design. Bathroom counter small, faucet dripped continuously. Ran out of hot water on 2nd formal night. My time dining had no wait staff entertainment on formal night. Only deck game is shuffleboard. Only two soft serve ice cream machines open 12- 4 pm, they were broke most of the time and when working, the ice cream was runny. We were not WOWED with this ship. Passengers were quieter and acted more mature than cheaper cruise lines.

Destinations and Excursions
Barbados taxi drivers divert you to lousy Payne's beach, Payne's water bottom full of rocks and shells, no one could get into the water. After paying $30 for taxi and another $20 for chairs, workers started chain sawing tree. We left after 1-hour and took another taxi to the beach we wanted. If you have another beach in mind, don't let the taxi front men tell you the beach is unsafe, like they told us.

Taxi front men at port lie. Use scare tactics to route you to a beach where they are teamed up with the chair, umbrella, bar & food, water sports vendors. Locals somewhat pushy over and over again asking you to buy their goods.


Old and dated. Quiet crowd.
