We picked this cruise since it was 8 nights, a great price, and went to one of our favorite ports (St. Maarten). It had been 3 years since we last sailed on Royal Caribbean due to them having limited sailings (seasonal only) on the West Coast. In that time, we have sailed on Holland America, Princess, and several Carnival West Coast cruises. Overall, Royal Caribbean is still our favorite cruise line. Flying from the West Coast, we arrived the night before the cruise. We picked our hotel based upon free airport, and cruise port, shuttle transfers. The Quality Inn Cruise Port South met both these requirements. The airport shuttle runs until 12:30 AM which matches the flights arriving at Ft. Lauderdale Airport. However, due to a Southwest flight delay passing through Denver, our adult daughter arrived at 12:40 so a taxi ($25) was needed for her. The hotel is located next to McDonalds and Taco Bell. Within walking distance are several other restaurants and a K-Mart. Guests can make last minute purchases (wine?) or grab a bite to eat after a long flight. The hotel itself is old, but is fine for one night. The morning breakfast was better than expected and the shuttle to the cruise port was the most organized we have ever seen in our many Florida cruises. With the free shuttles, it was worth the price. We had a scheduled boarding time of 1:00-1:30 PM. Due to the 11:00 hotel check out time, and shuttle schedule, we arrived at port at 11:30. To our surprise, we were allowed to go straight on the ship. Royal Caribbean allows guest to pre-load their security photo from home which really speeds-up embarkation. By 11:45 we were in the Windjammer eating lunch. The Windjammer, instead of having the usual alcohol based hand sanitizer dispensers, has built-in sinks. The 8 wash basins each have a faucet which not only dispenses warm water, and soap, but also contains a hand blower. It was actually fun to “washy washy” before each meal. The selection of food in the Windjammer was good. However, seating was an issue. The staff cleaned tables as fast as they came available, but you had to watch for people leaving and then make a dash for the table. We always found a table, but it took a little work. The ship is in great shape. The Flow Rider, rock climbing wall, water slides, splash area, ice skating rink, pools, shuffleboard, and Ping-Pong, kept us busy during the 4 at days at sea. The mini-golf course is situated on two decks with one of the holes taking the ball to the lower deck. Unlike other brands we have been on where the mini-golf course was just AstroTurf with a hole in it, the Adventure of the Seas has structures (a boat, lighthouse, giant clam shell, etc) like a real mini-golf course. Also, our last Carnival ship had hollow plastic balls which do not act like real balls. Royal Caribbean still uses real golf balls. For ice skating, you have to sign-up in the morning before the first session for ANY session during that day. We did not know this and arrived at the 2nd session to find it full (35 skaters per session). On the next sea day, we arrived before the first session and got our desired session stickers. The sessions last 30 minutes and skaters are required to wear long pants (make-sure to pack one pair of long pants for this and not only shorts) and socks. At 1:30 the rooms opened. Your room key is located at your room. Our luggage was also at the room waiting for us. The room was good size with a fold down bed (located above the head area of the main bed). The fold down bed remained down then entire cruise, but was out of the way. The shower had a glass door and the balcony had two chairs, which folded down flat, and a table. Unlike other ships which have glass walls separating the balconies, the Adventure of the Seas balconies have one glass wall, and one full metal wall. This limits possible disturbances to only one neighbor instead of two. It resulted in a more private feeling. The AC worked great and kept the room cool. There was an empty refrigerator in the room which came in great for storing cold water. You use a magnet on the door to indicate to the stateroom attendant when you are out of the room. Unlike Carnival, which has gone to one time per day service, Royal Caribbean still does twice daily room maintenance. Our cabin attendance was great and the room was always serviced while we were either away at breakfast or at dinner. Since it was a Caribbean cruise, we bought the non-alcoholic drink package (pre-cruise sale price $23.50 per day which included 18% tips). This allowed you to get ANY drink at the Coffee Café (which served Starbucks and great iced mocha frappes), fresh juice, bottled water, and mock cocktails at the bars. You also got a micro-chipped plastic cup which allowed you to use the self-service machines throughout the ship for soda. Unlike Carnival, which gives you a receipt (that has a space for an additional tip (above the 18% already paid) making you feel bad if you do not tip again) to sign, Royal Caribbean just swipes your card and you are on your way. No pressure for additional tips. With the hot weather, the package (which does not have to be bought for all guests staying in the same room) was a good deal. Highly recommend the non-alcoholic Mango Daiquiri. The package even works on Labadee. For dinner we had early seating. You order your entire meal (appetizer(s), main course, and dessert) at once. This allowed the waiters to seamlessly deliver your meal without long waits. Each night we would order two appetizers which would be delivered at the same time. Once you finished a course, the next course would magically appear. On the second Formal Night, lobster was on the menu. Although some cruise lines charge extra for lobster, on the 7 night, or longer, Royal Caribbean cruises it is still complimentary and you can order as many as you like. The lobster was the best we have had in our many cruises and shamelessly we each had 3 (while on vacation…..). For the other 7 nights, the menu kept our taste buds entertained and the food was delivered hot. One area where Royal Caribbean fell short was celebrating Special Occasions. During prior cruises, we received a free photo coupon on Carnival during a birthday, a balloon and card on Princess during a special event, and other such items. On this cruise, we were celebrating our 25th anniversary (as noted in the reservation). The DAY AFTER the anniversary, we received a 10% off jewelry coupon. No other recognition (a card would have been nice) from Royal Caribbean. It was kind of a letdown after seeing what other bands did and made us wonder why they even ask when booking. The first port of call was Royal Caribbean’s private beach Labadee. Although there is a zip line, roller coaster, and other fun activities (extra cost) on the beach, we decided to just lie on the beach and enjoy the sun since during prior visits we had done the activities. Chairs are provided for free and there are shade trees. The drink package works at Labadee and we kept hydrated with sodas and non-alcoholic Labaduzies (tropical fruit daiquiris). They also serve a free BBQ lunch. The lunch was great and we made several snack runs to the serving area for additional cookies and desserts. One great thing about the beach, there are no venders. The venders are limited to certain areas near the restrooms (where you will get the usual aggressive selling). So you can just lay back, sip Labaduzies, and enjoy the beach. The second port of call was Porto Rico. We had a van tour excursion booked through Royal Caribbean, but upon receiving our tickets on the ship, we noticed the tour time had changed. The new time interfered with our dinner time. We cancelled the tour (full refund) and instead walked to the two forts. Both are near the ship and are run by the U.S. Park Service. One admission price is good for both forts. The forts were interesting and the walk was easy. The third port of call was St. Maarten. St. Maarten (Dutch side, St. Martin French side). Here we went to Maho Beach. This is the famous beach by Princess Julianna Airport where planes fly over right above your head. Excursions to the beach ran about $40 per person. A taxi is about $30. We took the public transportation (vans which run on a scheduled route every 10 minutes) for $2 per person each way. It was a short walk to the main street where we caught a van with a “Maho Beach” sign in the window (the other route is Marigot). If you see lots on vans with Marigot, and none with Maho Beach, you are on the wrong direction street since the locations are in opposite directions. The trip to Maho Beach took 25 minutes and cost only $6. A majority of the large planes (Airbus 320s and 737s) land between 11:45-2:00 so this is the best time for viewing. Unfortunately, about half way during our visit, it started to rain. We went to the near-by Sun Set Bar and Grill ($9 daiquiris, $4 beers) for a drink and shelter. If you have to use the restroom, use it before ordering. They charge $1 to use the restroom, but give you a $1 drink coupon. After watching the planes, it was another $6 van ride back to Philipsburg (cruise dock) which took about 40 minutes. We happen to be in Philipsburg on Labor Day and were treated to an interesting Labor Day parade. It was like a New Orleans Mardi Gras parade with free t-shirts, and beer, being handed from the floats to the spectators. Once word of warning, the parade participants were very scantly clothed and also seemed to have enjoyed the free beverages. We would probably not take any young children to watch the parade. The last port of call was St. Kitts. Here we took a Royal Caribbean booked van tour of the island for $24 a person. After several days in the sun, and never having been to St. Kitts before, we picked the relaxing Panoramic Drive in the air conditioned van. The tour was nice with the only complaint being it was shorter than the advertised 2 hours. The tour made two stops as it wound around the tiny island. The driver used a PA system and the van was in good shape. For this cruise, we bought the unlimited photo package ($199 pre-sale). It was fun taking numerous photos (354) which will keep the memories alive for many years to come. The photos are downloadable to your phone, or any device, while on board the ship. You can also load the photos from a link emailed to your after the cruise. Instead of agonizing over which photos to buy, and ending-up with a $100 photo bill for a few favorites, this package gave us all photos for every person in your stateroom with you buying only 1 package per room. If somebody from your room is in the photo, you get it. Debarkation went fast. After leaving our stateroom at 8:00, we got breakfast in the Windjammer (stops serving at 8:30). By the time we finished breakfast, numbers 1-24 had been called. Being group 10, we walked right off the ship. Customs took about 15 minutes. Having a 4:50 flight, we reserved a car with Hertz for the day. The Hertz shuttle makes loops between the several ships and their office. Due to port rules, you cannot take a car rental shuttle to an airport rental location. Thus, all the car rental shuttles go to off airport locations. Although we had pre-paid for the rental car, and somehow managed to arrive exactly at the rental time (great guessing), Hertz had no car for us. An employee had to go the airport and bring a car over which took about 30 minutes. The car only had 3/8 a tank of gas and we were told to return it at the same level. When we returned the car later at the airport, we were told we owed for the missing gas. Luckily between a photo of the odometer/gas gauge upon pick-up, a gas receipt for the estimates used gas, and only driving 58 miles, we were able to convince the attendant there was no way we could use 5/8 a tank of gas. The gas charge was removed, but it did cost us about 15 minutes of our time. If you do rent from Hertz, be warned. While waiting for our flight, we drove about 25 minutes (no tolls along the way) to Sawgrass Recreation Park for an air boat ride. Using a coupon online, we were able to pre-buy the tickets for a great price. The ride was about 30 minutes and we saw 3 adult alligators. Sawgrass Mills was picked based upon location, price, type of boat used, and recommendations online. After the ride, we visited their animal area and got to hold a baby alligator. They also have several animals to view. It made for a nice 2 hour visit. It was then off to a late lunch and the airport for our flight home. Overall, the cruise was fantastic. It greatly exceeded our expectations (except for the Special Occasion). Adventure of the Seas is a wonderful ship with an outstanding crew. Read Less

Smoothest embarkation and disembarkation yet.This was my 9th cruise and royal has it down to a science. We self assisted off and were in our shuttle before we were supposed to be getting off the ship. Adventure is a nice size ship, not too big and not too small. Cabins were very clean and this ship is hardly dated at all. Plenty of closet/storage space and mini fridge. The water slides are a blast. Dinner in the main dinning room is great. And the crew are the best and so very friendly. All seem to really love their jobs. Services was excellent all around. Loved our itinerary with a sea day, 4 ports and end with two more sea days. I highly recommend the Golden Eagle catamaran/snorkel excursion thru RC at St. Martens. Excellent snorkeling/beach and friendly crew. We did a walking tour of Old San Juan that included the fort-private tour for 6 of us through cruise planners. Ricky was great. St. Kitt's excursion was Capitol and Beach thru Island Paradise Tours that I found on Cruise Critic. Also a private tour for 8 of us. Only $37pp-great price and Stanley was a very nice guide that took good care of us. St. Martens, Labadee and St. Kitt's are all beautiful ports and a must see. The water is so blue. Ship is very relaxing or as wild as you want to be. From relaxing poolside to singing karaoke in the Schooner bar or gambling in the casino. We had six adults and all agree we would do this itinerary again! My adult nephew praised the gym. Said it was great for his daily work out. Read Less

This was a deal I could not pass up. A once in a lifetime opportunity that gave me a chance to cruise like I have not in all my 40+ cruises. The Owner's Suite has more storage than 15 Oasis of the Seas ocean view balcony cabins combined. I was on the Oasis of the Seas in an ocean view balcony cabin in March 2019 and was very disappointed with storage. Left much to be desired, especially in the bath room. I had an issue with the balcony. It is not very long and extremely narrow. Could barely hold 2 chairs, 1 round glass topped table and one chaise lounge. The bathroom was amazing with a full shower, toilet, bidet, two sinks and a jacuzzi tub. The lighting in the cabin takes some getting used to. A metal plate with tiny round black buttons; mounted next to the main door and with two smaller plates in the bedroom, are used for all lighting in the cabin. The buttons were each labeled but the printing is tiny and faded. For such a large cabin the "dining table" only had 2 chairs. Plus the table has an annoying knob type thing mounted in the middle of the table. Would be nice if the table top was perfectly flat. The suite lounge was a fabulous experience and I got a chance to meet some very nice people. I chatted with more people on this one cruise than in my last 10 cruises. Food and service was good. Service in the main dining room was fabulous. Specialty dining was okay, the food and service was not any better than in the main dining venue. A person expects better service and better quality food when paying extra. All things considered the Adventure of the Seas was an excellent cruise. My last Voyager class ship cruise was on the Explorer of the Seas in October 2001. I am looking forward to cruises on the Anthem and Oasis of the Seas ships in 2020. Read Less

My DH and I recently sailed on Adventure OTS. I know it is not the newest or the biggest, but it was perfect for us and for what we wanted to do on a cruise This was my 51st total cruise, and I am Diamond on Royal. This carries some nice perks which I will go into in a bit. As there aren't too many reviews for this ship, I wanted to share my thoughts We drove down the night before. We live about 3 hours or so from the port but I have learned not to arrive the day of. We stayed at the Embassy Suites and took a taxi to the port. As my DH travels we had points for the hotel and free rental car. So we rented a vehicle from Deltona to the airport in FLL, and then rented one for free to go home. Worked out great. We arrived at the port about noon, and we were on the ship in about 15 to 20 minutes. Since our room would not be ready until a bit after 1pm, we decided to just relax in the Schooner Bar and enjoy a couple of drinks. Once our room was ready we went and got our room keys and dropped off our carry on. We explored the ship a bit until it was time for Muster. Once Muster was finished, we went back to our room. Our suitcases were there so we unpacked. The cabin has so much storage space! We only used about half the drawers, and there were plenty of hangers in the closet. Our cabin number was 7618, which is a Hump Balcony mid-ship. Lots of room for the two reclining chairs plus a full size table. The bathroom was a bit smaller than some of the ships I have been on, but it was adequate and everything was good. Love the shower doors instead of the clingy curtains on some other ships! The biggest downside was the bed and the pillows. I would have been as comfortable sleeping on the floor! I cannot believe how hard the bed was and how flat the pillows were. Definitely a negative in my book.. The only other thing that annoyed me was the room was sometimes not cleaned until after 1:30 or so. As we like to relax in our room or out on the balcony, it was a bit of a drag. Not enough to make me upset the whole day, but enough to annoy me. We went on the cruise for some much needed R and R. We never got off the ship, and stayed on all week. Our days were spent in the Solarium, out on the balcony, in the casino a bit, or sitting on the Promenade. It was pure bliss. We had the Your Time dining, but still had a reservation for each night. I know it seems a little bit of an oxymoron to have reservations for dining on my time, but it worked for us. We sat at the same table each night with the same staff. Dinner was great every night, and took about an hour. Meals were brought out hot, my water glass stayed full, and I enjoyed my banana split for dessert each and every night. Breakfast was usually at the Windjammer, although we did eat in the dining room twice for breakfast. Lunch was always the Windjammer. It is spread out in a great way and there was little if any congestion or lines during the times we went. The Washy-Washy woman is a pure delight and always made me smile. The casino was very tight, and surprisingly not too smoky. I did not notice too many people who were smoking without playing. I am not sure if that is due to good policing by the staff or if less people are smoking. Diamond Perks: We used the free 8x10 photo, and definitely enjoyed the three cocktails loaded onto our Sea Pass card each day between 4:30 and 8:30. Since the drinks were available we never did make it to the lounge for pre-dinner snacks. We were also able to get off the ship a bit quicker since the Loyalty Ambassador was outside and saw us and two other couples who met with him during the week. He literally escorted us through the line and we were off the ship, collected out luggage, went through Customs, and in our car in about 30 minutes. My DH and I just looked at each other and said WOW! I am not sure if I covered everything, but if you have any questions I will try to answer them. We did go to a couple of the shows (don't remember the names) and they were very well done. I didn't keep the daily sheets as they are pretty generic in my opinion. Most folks dressed accordingly to the suggested dress, but there were a few in shorts and jeans on the more dressier nights. I don't care, but thought I would mention it since it comes up in discussion. My DH and I get a bit dressy, but we do it for ourselves and for each other. All in all it was just what we were wanting and needing, and except for the horrible mattress - a perfect cruise for us. Read Less

Chose this cruise based on dates (need specific dates when traveling with teachers and kids), ship, and cost. We also looked at Allure and Rhapsody. Rhapsody was too small and not enough for the kids and Allure was more expensive. We traveled with three families total (6 adults and 6 kids, ages 7,8,9,9,10,12). We all had interior rooms on deck 8 (8445, mine, 8457, and 8469). Rooms we as to be expected, small yet manageable. I was actually pleasantly surprised how easily 4 fit in one small room. Before we got on the ship we stayed in an Airbnb in Weston, FL. It was nice to be away from the Ft. Lauderdale and Miami crowd. We went to Everglades Holiday Park and enjoyed seeing gators in their natural habitat and the kids each got to hold a baby gator. Embarkation was as expected. Lot of traffic getting to the Port. Once in, the lines weren't too bad. Dining in the Main Dinning Room was great. We signed up for My Time Dinning and made reservations for the whole week. This ensured that we had the same wait staff, but weren't restricted to eating at 5:30 or 8:00. Our nightly reservation was at 6:00, except on one night, which was 8:00 since the ship didn't leave port until 7. We had two in our party with allergies (gluten and dairy). Our wait staff did an excellent job of making sure we were able to order what we wanted and have it prepared to suite our dietary needs, even if the menu did not indicate it to be gluten or dairy free. The wait staff also did a great job with the kids. They gave them different logic puzzle to figure out each night. It kept the kids entertained quiet. Dinning in the Windjammer was a little less than I expected. Our last cruise, in 2017, had a whole section of gluten free options (sandwiches, cookies, desserts, pastas, etc) but Adventure only had 1-2 breads and 1-2 desserts. I was told I could ask anyone wearing a white shirt to get special orders of GF, but because my allergy is not severe I just picked things I knew to be GF and didn't bother with asking. Kids club was hit and miss. The two youngest loved kids club and asked to go back repeatedly. The middle three did not care for it, saying the activates were too "baby" and they didn't have the option to sit out. They only went twice. The oldest was in a group by herself, but was able to go to the middle age club, when they went. For the most part the activities and entertainment were excellent. There was not a Broadway show, as there is on other RC ships, but the shows were good nonetheless. The Fire and Ice show was great! I am always amazed all they are able to do on such small sheet of ice. My biggest complaint of the cruise was the "Sexiest Man Competition" held at the main pool in the middle of the day. This was completely inappropriate to have in front of children. The men were conducting lap dances to receive the title of sexiest man. Even when I had my kids stop watching and go back to swimming the competition was broadcast on the big movie screen for all to see. RC really should have put a stop to the crude behavior, but instead they were encouraging it. Read Less

We like the six night itinerary, long enough and we like having a weekend day to get ready and day to recover before back to work, so leaving on Sunday and back on Saturday is perfect. Embark day was very smooth, The ship is beautiful, big but not humongous and easy to figure out after a day or so. We had an inside cabin on deck 7, plenty of space for the two of us, we’re boaters and we like the real “boat” feel of an inside cabin but it might not be for everyone. Our cabin steward was very sweet but there was a bit of a language barrier that we haven’t had before. We had a bit of a mixup with our dining, we had chosen main dining early when we booked months ago but all of a sudden when we got our sea passes (which you don’t get now until you go to your cabin) they said My Time Dining. So we had to kind of push to get a table for two in main dining and didn’t get that until the 2nd night. They worked it out for us but it shouldn’t have happened and we missed out on a night at our “real” table. We moved on though and it was fine. Our servers there were very good, Nidia in particular. The food was good, some nights especially good. We liked the new sinks going into the Windjammer, very slick with wash and dry all in one, and much better than the constant antibacterial stuff that always feels so sticky, I’d rather wash my hands. We liked the Windjammer buffet for lunch and a couple of breakfasts, good food, nice variety. We spend lots of time outside and enjoy the deck above the pool. But geez, even though they really really try to tell people no saving chairs there are still so many people that do that! We never need to be right in the middle of things so we were always able to find chairs but you do see people wandering around looking for seats when there are so many saved and never used. It’s a selfish thing that never seems to change. In Cozumel we did the single rider ATV/Cavern swim excursion, very fun! We thought it might be slow riding but we were pleasantly surprised, they really let us fly! And the cavern was very cool, a literal bat cave which I thought would freak me out but our guides did such a great job of explaining it all that it felt ok to get in and swim. Great experience. I’m all over the place here, but we also really enjoyed the guy in the piano bar, can’t remember his name but he did a really funny little show. Disembarkation was made super easy by using a porter for our luggage. Our guy got our bags and somehow got us to the head of a very long line, it took us 15 mins from walking off the ship to getting into the parking garage shuttle! Money well spent on that one!

Our cabin was perfect; fantastic location. except not enough room for my wheel chair.(The handicapped cabin was more expensive).Our room's caretaker was excellent. No room for improvement there either. She was a kind sweet young lady, very thorough. We even enjoyed chatting with her. The food was fantastic anywhere we went we were well accommodated in the DR.The main complaint we had was the constant loud music videos on deck, never any quiet time. We found this a bit distressing. Service was great all the way around with one exception, when I needed a break in the line at the cafe they would not accommodate me. I cant wait in line and I needed a snack.All the other food venues were closed. This was a concern. Outside this complaint the service was excellent.. Read Less

Everything was excellent, except the casino allows smoking throughout. Many of us could not stay there as long as we would wish. The smokers also seemed rude and purposely blew smoke towards others. I don't know if it was on purpose, or if they were just oblivious to the non-smokers. Coming from Florida where it is illegal to smoke in a public place, I was aghast that smokers had more rights than we non-smokers. Everything else was superior. Departure was easy and smooth; disembarkation was fast and smooth. I liked the Adventure of the Seas. This was my first time on her, and all was good. We had a small cabin, but it was clean, neat, close to the elevators , and Tu was a great cabin steward. Dining was fine. We ate in the Cafe' Promenade, Windjammer, and Sapphire restaurants. Food was very good, but I would have liked a larger selection of entree's. Our waiter and ass't waiter were among the best I have ever had. There were many activities and entertainment shows: nothing as grand as on the Oasis and Allure (no Broadway productions) , but we had good shows. The comedians were only average, but the singers and dancers were very good. Back stage tour was very interesting. The Company Men ( a male quartet) was excellent! I have their CD. They were quite the experience. Service was excellent throughout the ship. I love Grand Cayman, but did not book any excursions this trip. Costa Maya: I just explored and went shopping; then I watched the dolphins being fed and jumping. In Cozumel I took the tour to Chichen Itza. It was a lifetime goal and did not disappoint. Some on the tour did not realize that it takes most of the day to travel back and forth. We only had a little over an hour there, but I knew what to expect. I was not disappointed! I travelled with a friend. I would definitely go again. I love cruising. Read Less

We chose this cruise because of the great price and the great ports of call.We had a great time.It was our grand-sons first cruise and now tells people he will be pinnacle one day.lol.Many great choices in MDR including chicken,pork,beef,vegetarian,fish,shrimp,Italian dishes,shrimp,and lobster.Most of our faves on appetizers and desserts.Also had great choices for the kiddos.Adventure Ocean was a great option for grand-son.He had fun.The ship has many things to do onboard.Our wait staff were some of the BEST!!Joyal and Jean at table 132.Table was great.A bartender recognized on my sea pass it was by birthday and wished me a happy birthday.Embarkation happened in like 5 minutes fast and easy!!Really the only negative was our bed.It was one of of the worst compared to the other shipsAll 4 ports were awesome.We would definitely go again if the price is right.Phenomenal value.Grand-son loved the ice-show.Hubby liked the dancing and I had a few date nights with hubby and grand-son.Over-all great memories made.Because there were great photographers onboard ;we got some great photos as well to remember it by.
