7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 23, 2016
Ship: Adventure of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 1388
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Dining and housekeeping staff were exceptional!!  Our cabin was spacious, but the pole in the middle of the room wasn't very well planned.  It was directly between the bed and the TV.  There are plenty of onboard activities, but not many that really interested us.  WiFi should be available at a more reasonable cost and with more websites available for free (e.g. weather, CNN news, etc.)  One of our excursions was cancelled and re-scheduled to a much earlier time, due to no fault of our own, and our our only notification about this was a voicemail on our cabin phone; which we happened to notice only by dumb luck.  Better communication should have been provided.

Our cabin was spacious, but the furniture configuration should have been better thought-out due to the pole in the middle of the room. Fortunately, we brought our own shampoo and conditioner, as none was supplied by the ship.

Ship Tip

Bring your own shampoo and conditioner, wear comfortable shoes - there's a lot of walking around the ship, confirm your excursions early, as they may be changed with not much advance notice.

More excursions should have been available, but were not. So you might miss the really good parts of the island.

Friars' Bay is a beautiful beach, and only a short taxi ride from the pier.

There is nothing to do in the immediate area of the pier. We saw very little of Barbados.
