I took this cruise with my wife.  We enjoyed the ports for their shopping and a few had good excursions--although many were really just beach ports for which it is cheaper to get off and find a taxi to the beach rather than a set excursion.


The ship itself, though, feels very dated and didn't have the entertainment we were hoping for.  The casino was almost entirely slot machines, missing the electronic poker and blackjack machines that are on the newer ships.  The cabins were pretty worn and ours had a few maintenance problems through the trip.


The highlight of the trip was the dining service we receive at my time dining.  They were great and really made the ship seem better than it was.


Overall, we'll probably go another RC cruise but we'll stick to the newer ships.  Who knows though, the Adventure is scheduled to be refurbished this fall, so it may be much better in a short time.
