Fun Trip on Royal's Adventure of the Seas

Sail Date: April 16, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Just returned from a trip on Adventure of the Seas.  We chose this cruise for the ports of call not for the ship.  The ship is showing a bit of age.  She is still lovely and very clean, but you can see that she can use some upgrading which I understand is scheduled for later this year.  We enjoyed each port and did an excursion in each.  One day of rain but that is no one's fault.  The only disappointment is you can see the food quality has changed from years past.  Not horrible, but not great.  Also the best staff is being moved to the big new ships, which was told to us by some of the staff.  Some of the staff seems unhappy and some is being trained and just not quite ready to be on their own.  Not enough to spoil the trip, but in comparison to trips on Royal in the past, you could see the difference.  The Activities Staff was great, loved Dan Dan the Cruise Ship Entertainment Director, and the shows were good!

Some was very good, some not so much. Not enough to ruin the trip, but nothing to exciting


Don't miss the Mystery Night Dinner! That was fun.
