Have been on several cruises and our first for Royal Caribbean - Adventure of the Seas was a "okay" ship that is getting ready for dry-dock refurbishment - so there were some blemishes but nothing ugly - Cabin was adequate but needs a good cleaning/polishing in dry-dock, heard from others that their suite cabins were smaller than suites on other ships.  Food options was minimal between Main Dinning (food good), Windjammer café (food steam table variety) - Chef's Table was excellent and worth the price with the food and wine you get -- Giovanni's was nice Italian meal, nothing spectacular, but still good - Johnny Rockets cover charge followed by their delicious milk shake and you pay as much as you would on land. Spa had excellent services - relaxation room was not great and lacks dressing rooms, thermal spa.  Service was like the elevators - sometime both were slower than expected.  Service personnel were not quick or especially outgoing (maybe because the pending dry dock?)  Entertainment was good - Comedians were excellent, singers were good, dancers/shows were fair. Quest game show was outrageously funny. Would have expected more midday activities to cover the generations of people. Embark/Disembark - need to be simply patient with both expect delays or you will get frustrated.  Leaving from San Juan during Hurricane season is chancy but worked out for us.

Cabin / Stateroom
Size of cabin was adequate, some blemishes need to be attended to. With dry-dock forthcoming - cabin refurbishment is in order. Excellent location to mid ship elevators with no noise to be concerned about.

Chef's Table is worth the price - good food, wine and conversation.
