We are frequent RC cruisers. We very much enjoyed the Baltic Cruise. My only criticism would be the Dining Room food has dropped in it's quality. The Specialty Restaurants are delightful! Service and food exceptional. Unfortunately, most people do not feel the need to pay for better food. Overall service on the ship is wonderful. I highly recommend Royal Caribbean.

fine as a second choice
Reviewed on: 06 Jul 2013
RC could do better. To charge a fee in not so special restaurants aboard is nickel and diming. The overall maintenance was minimal as the balcony woodwork needed attention. Staterooms a bit scimpy as well as balcony space. The card room needs attention and someone to manage the care of the board games as well as the card packs. Excursion costs much higher than if purchased off ship. A good second choice, but look at competitors first.

We had a wonderful time. We were very lucky to have beautiful weather. The staff were all very attentive and helpful. Dinners in the dining room were very good otherwise typical cruise fare. Would definitely recommend the helicopter trip to the glacier. Had lived in Alaska years ago but it was worth a trip back to see the amazing scenery again.

RCI needs to look into how this ship is being run

dining experience awful chops food was bad and certainly not worth $30 extra we had a theft on board which was mishandled so badly not enough agents on board to help with open booking a new cruise however Giovanni's was terrific the chef made dishes that were better than many NYC restaurants and our italian waiter just made our dining experience more special this trip did not live up to the norm for RCI I brought a guest who had never been on a cruise Wrong one to bring them on

Celebrating New Years on the Allure of the Seas was a perfect way to start off 2014! Our family of 8 had an incredible time. Lots of great memories from ziplining over the Haiti beach, bobsledding down Jamaica's Mystic Mountain, and scuba diving the beautiful ocean off of Cozumel. And when we were not off exploring the port of calls, we were entertained every minute of the day and night with wonderful shows, parties, great food, and parades. It was a trip of a lifetime!

This ship is a great size. Not so large that it feels over crowded, yet so much to do onboard.

As an emerald member in their "frequent sailor" club, I'm pleased to say that this cruise line continues to provide the best value, accommodation, service, and entertainment, in spite of introducing the largest mega ships in the world. I didn't think it could be done and have had to eat my words. I have sailed on both the Oasis and Allure in the past 12 months and could not have been more satisfied.

Do Not Reccomend

The staff aboard the Navigator of the seas was rude upon arrival at the Port of Galveston. We had not recieved any communication that our boat had reached port late, and when we arrived at the port, the first woman we came into contact with wearing Royal Caribbean attire argued and yelled at my group. That should have told us something about what we were to expect aboard the Navigator of the Seas. Although, we had 5 employees that treated us with the most respect, and made our journey a fun one, the vast majority of the crew aboard this ship didnt care that we were aboard at all. I understand that it was a very busy week, but that shouldnt have changed how we were treated aboard the ship. Norweigan has proved to us to be a much better cruise line, and I will go with them from now on, rather than giving Royal Caribbean another chance.

First, the port of Bayone was a nightmare. We were in a traffic jam for over 45 minutes once we reached the port. Check in went fairly well. The cruise went well . I found Royal Carribean to be bare bones compaired to other lines I have been on. No amenities at all, not a pen hand cream or even a 10 cent shower cap to be found. I asked for a small pillow :"we have none" I was told. The room was clean, Windjammer Cafe crowded and we found part of a katsup packet and a bristle in our food . Also returned food that was not fit to eat. no one ever contacted us to apoligize. , Leaving the ship was another horror. 45 minutes on the staircase on the ship and another hour for our driver to reach us. The only reason I would travel this line again is if it the only ship going somewhere I really wanted to go.

Food wasn't good. Poorly supervised children. Entertainment was poor. The cruise wasn't up to RCCL standards. We did like our specialty dinner. We are going on another cruise with RCCL in January and hopefully that one will be better. This is the first time we experienced a bad cruise with RCCL and we have been on lots of them with RCCL.

Large ship -- no problems
Reviewed on: 27 Feb 2015
Having been a fan of smaller ships, I was a little concerned when I decided to book this trip on a larger ship. There was really no cause for concern. There were no long lines--there are plenty of venues to handle all the people. The shows were spectacular. The drink packages made it easy to have the refreshments I wanted when I wanted. The cabin was spacious and had lots of storage (not always the case on many ships). Overall, I was very pleased with the experience.

Royal Caribbean's Adventure of the Seas was a lovely ship with many activities offered. The shows were excellent and the food was good. Little things have changes as the company seems to be cutting some corners. They, for example, stop leaving chocolate candies on the pillows. This is a small thing, but one we missed. There seemed to be a bigger push by employees to up sale items. The staff were pleasant, but seemed a bit stretched. I would travel with Royal again, but hope more and more of the "cruse experience" extras are not lost as they try to make more money.

My cruise on Adventure of the seas was a very busy week. Up early and out on excursions everyday. The main reason for my great experience was the service received from the staff. Cabin steward, waiter. Assistant waiter, Head waiter, bar servers, dealers and any other staff we were involved with. The photographer we used during the whole cruise was awesome and we got a great package with all our photos. I'm already to go again. Thank Royal Caribbean and Trish Mercer.

Ports were great but ship could use some refurbishing. Service on the ship was also good.

Ship is a perfect size! Large screen has been added to the deck, but would suggest having the covers over the hot tubs removable for major viewings. So much space was limited & unable to be used during the super bowl, as it blocked the view, which made it very crowded and people had to stand. Audio was difficult to hear on the upper decks.
Blindsided on the gratuities
Reviewed on: 25 May 2016
When I checked in online, the gratuity was 12.95/person/day. no problem, I expect that and I've paid it before. However, when we boarded the ship, the gratuity had increased to $13.50/day. I don't object to them raising the rate, and I don't object to the extra 55 cents. My objection is that they said one thing and then changed it without notification. That's just petty. I visited the Guest Services desk and had the gratuity removed from my bill. Then I gave cash to my cabin attendant and dining table staff in the equivalent amount I would have paid at 12.95/day. This is the third year I've cruised with RCCL and the menu in the dining room, while delicious, hasn't changed. Also, the singing waiters on the last evening are just downright annoying. Other than that, the cruise was great. The RCCL staff is unfailingly friendly and polite. We really enjoyed the cruise!

This ship does not meet Royal Caribbean standards. Honestly I felt like I was on a cruise where the staff was being trained on the job. Apparently the ship was suppose to go to dry dock which I believe it did but apparently due to Hurricane Matthew supplies needed for repairs didn't arrive, so not all repairs were done. Now they are doing repairs while the ship is cruising. Our group had toilet issues in our staterooms and we were told 50 staterooms were affected by this. We were given various excuses of why the problems were happening. We met some people getting off the ship that had plumbing problems last year on this ship and they were given a 50% off another cruise so they decided to give this one a try again since it was going to dry docked to be repaired. They were quite disappointed when they had plumbing problems again. This apparently has been going on for some time now, and the company needs to stop lying to customers and get it fixed correctly.

The ship itself was good. The cruise director, Elvis- excellent. But the customer service that we received on board was not the best. ONE EXAMPLE: After waiting 40 min for a beverage, I simply left the table and procured drinks for everyone at a nearby bar. SECOND: dirty towels piled up in our cabin. We got new ones due to the fact that our steward did not take or replenish. It was small things that made this trip untoloerable for the customer.

cruise ship injury
Reviewed on: 21 Jun 2017
Less than 24 hours into our cruise my wife suffered a severe cut to her knee. The injury was due to equipment issues with the ship. The medical staff took care of the injury that required stitches and a shot. The staff after the injury kept their distance from us fearing a lawsuit I guess. The ship itself was in good shape and the food on board was good. Dealing with RCCL after the cruise is becomming somewhat of an issue.

Royal Caribbean Adventure of the Seas
Reviewed on: 17 Sep 2017
This ship is one of the older ships that I guess has been upgraded, and we were not disappointed as a whole. We did not use all the activities on the ship, but there seemed a lot for people to do, especially the children. The entertainment was average. With only one exception the food in the dining rooms was good and presented well. Our junior suite was just what we needed and the cabin steward provided excellent service. We would rate the service by most employees as above average, and most employees were helpful when you needed answers to questions or directions. The pre-cruise check-in process was easy, and the embark and debark and airport transfer process went smoothly. Prior to the cruise, I had contact via email with customer service and was pleased with the responses to my questions. We would use Royal Caribbean again.

Activities/entertainment -- enjoyed putt putt golf and the evening shows. Balcony Cabin -- offered all the space and storage we needed for 3 people. Staff -- everyone was friendly and helpful. Dining -- This was the only area of disappointment. We've been on 4 different cruise lines and the dining room and buffet food was not among our best from our previous cruises. Anytime dining on Princess and Norwegian has shorter lines that on RC. We made reservations for dinner or we would have been waiting in a long line to be seated.

Fall color cruise
Reviewed on: 05 Oct 2018
Generally pretty good. Food was excellent. Staff was always helpful, smiling, and friendly. The ship was clean and in good repair. I did think too many on-board activities were fee based with limited options for free time. This was a cool weather cruise so many of the open deck activities were not very comfortable. The process for leaving the ship and connecting with excursions tended to be chaotic and confusing. Definitely could use improvement. Compared to 9 other cruises we have taken, this was the worse. Timing was unfortunate. Fall was late this year and there was very little color change. Can't fault the Cruise line for not knowing over a year in advance when the color would peak.
