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

By: bobby

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.

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!

Do Not Reccomend

By: StacysReviews

Reviewed on: 30 Mar 2014

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.

slightly dissapointed

By: nana6

Reviewed on: 20 Jun 2014

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.

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.

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.

Blindsided on the gratuities

By: sdiver43

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!

Horrible Experience

By: Tinkerbell

Reviewed on: 09 Mar 2017

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.

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.

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.

Generally our experience was positive, but the biggest exception to that was the lack of access to drinking water. There were very few places to get a glass of water. The bartenders were extremely reluctant to bring you a glass of water unless you were also buying drinks. Even if you bought drinks they still did not bring you water most times. It is obvious Royal Caribbean has made even drinking water a profit center via their bottled water packages. Another complaint was the frequent interruption of our relaxation by staff trying to sell us packages to the paying restaurants. It was like getting telemarketing calls while at home. These things left us with the impression that Royal Caribbean's focus has shifted to profit from add ons as opposed to their customers having an outstanding vacation experience. We have been loyal Royal Caribbean customers in the past, but we will now be looking at other cruise lines for future cruises.

The situation was resolved when the bartender found he had given back the wrong card. There was no apology or any attempt to make it right. My husband had a similar experience with a Guest Services attendant who told him it was his cell service and that the ship was having Internet problems.

The beds are hard and uncomfortable, the menus change only slightly in the main dining room, the food was not as good as we are used to on other cruise lines - eg. one night I ordered a puff pastry stew - the puff pastry was about 9 inches wide and looked like a frisbee and it sat on top of a combo of peas, corn and mushrooms with a tasteless gravy. Every night the ice cream was a choice of vanilla, chocolate or strawberry and when I did order it one night it tasted like it had freezer burn. The steaks were generally tough. The itinerary was changed so we had to go through border clearance twice and the lineups were hours long. Disembarkation for tours were chaotic. No lotion was provided in the rooms and you could not buy it on the ship. Our room was clean when we boarded but our friend's room was dirty. We love to play trivia but the room where it was held was very small and it was hard to ever find a seat.

Finally we had to ask guests to know where we had to meet.). They need to give clear directions and place them in your room the night before. Also, the food was so so. I was expecting better quality meats than provided. (Often the fish and chicken was dry. The steak strips were tough and chewy.). But did love their buns!!! And finally was upset with the large line up to get a taxi after disembarking at the end of the cruise. We waited nearly two hours standing in line in the damp and cold. Many people were very upset!! Could they not have let groups go off the ship at intervals so the wait time would have been less. It is hard on the elderly and those with health issues.

Not enough public spaces for the number of passengers. Everything required waiting in a long line. Not enough staff for the number of passengers. Cabins not refurbished.

Disappointed in my cruise and cabin attendant

By: Mary

Reviewed on: 06 Nov 2019

I was one of 5 people sharing a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom suite and I felt like a second class passenger. The cabin was not prepared for 5 guests and I had to ask for bedding, towels and drinking glass (which I never got the entire trip), when booking this trip at the next cruise office we were assured that this cabin would comfortably accommodate 6 people, my husband died before we could take the trip and I continued to go on the trip. The bed provided was too small for me (how two people would share it was a mystery to me) I am 6feet tall...eventually a single bed was brought in for me...having enough towels was an issue...we all like a fresh towel to shower with and we had to share a drinking glass for us to drink water with our meds. Paying the extra money for a suite was just NOT worth it.

Great sailing

Cruise ship was a little smaller than the Liberty that we had travelled on before so the pool area for kids was a bit cramped. Cruise food and service was very good. We enjoyed the evening shows very much. One suggestion is that they would have a peanut free area for baking and desserts so people with allergies would not have to worry.

This was my first trip on royal. I think the ship was layed out very nice and easy to get around, plenty of signage of where things were. The adult pool was very nice just needed a little music in the background

Had Medical Emergency and did not go on this cruise

Had a medical emergency just before the planned cruises (was booked for a back to back cruise on the same ship) and had to cancel just a few day before our scheduled departure. Glad we had the trip insurance we didn't lose our full payment and will get most of of our money back. We were looking forward to these cruises as we would have been moved up to Diamond Plus on this trip. We will make it up sometime in the future. Thank You Royal Caribbean.

Great Adventure


Reviewed on: 13 Jan 2020

My husband and I have been on many cruises. We enjoyed the Adventure. She is fairly new which is always a plus. The amenities, such as Coastal Kitchen, were enjoyable. We dined in Wunderland as our complementary specialty restaurant. It was an enjoyable and entertaining experience. We would definitely sail on Adventure again.

Ship size

Reviewed on: 26 Jan 2020

I have traveled several times with Royal Caribbean on several different size ships. Adventure of the Seas is very easy to get around and not as large as some of the other ships, however, the shows were not as good as other ships I have been on.

Goldilocks-sized ship, not too big, not too small!

By: Theresa

Reviewed on: 05 Mar 2020

We had sailed on many ships on Royal Caribbean and the Adventure of the Seas is one of our favorites. It's just the right size so you're not walking for 10 minutes just to get from one end to the other. But it's not too small where you feel like you're missing out. It has every amenity that the larger class ships have. But best of all, it's not super crowded! There weren't too many bodies in the hot tubs and there was never the announcement in Windjammer where they say something like, "When you are done, please enjoy other parts of the ship so that other guests can have a seat." Because of this, I felt the service was phenomenal because they can devote their attention to you! The only amenity I noticed that they didn't have was Royal Tots for the babies, so if you're traveling with kids under age 3 and need babysitting, this may not be the ship for you. (They still have Adventure Ocean for kids ages 3 and up, of course.) Other than that, two thumbs up from us!

We had a very nice cruise. Our suite was spacious and room steward was excellent. Suite lounge concierge was great. One of the cleanest ships we have experienced. Specially restaurants and spa were very enjoyable.
