Review of Adventure Of The Seas

Launched in 2001, Adventure of the Seas is the 3rd Voyager-class Royal Caribbean ship, together with Explorer, Navigator, Mariner and Voyager.

History - construction and ownership

Royal Caribbean International (RCI) is an US company, trademarked brand and subsidiary owned by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd (RCCL, shipowner). RCI was established in 1968 and currently has over 1/5 of the worldwide cruise market. RCI also has RCCL's largest fleet as both number of vessels and GT tonnage (ship sizes and capacities). All Royal Caribbean liners have names ending with "of the Seas".

Adventure Of The Seas cruise ship (Royal Caribbean)

The 137,276-ton, 3,690-passenger cruise ship Adventure of the Seas has been bypassed in size and conveniences by the Freedom-class trio and the massive Oasis-class twins. However, it's still between the largest ships in the world, with a range of the most uncruise-like places at sea, like a rollerblading track, ice-skating rink and rock-climbing wall - not to mention the bustling hub Royal Promenade, which is a shopping mall-esque boulevard of retail shops, bars, clubs and cafes.

Cruise itinerary program

Adventure of the Seas itinerary program is based on roundtrip departures from San Juan, Puerto Rico and Southern Caribbean cruises to Barbados.

Cabins

Most Adventure of the Seas staterooms are 150-sq.foot insides (480). Almost 50% of ship's accommodations have private balcony views. There are a total of 1557 staterooms in 25 categories. 26 are the wheelchair accessible rooms. The largest aboard Adventure of the Seas are the Royal Suites (1090 ft2 - more than 100 m2!).

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

From the meals in the three main dining rooms to the buffet choices in Windjammer Cafe and options available at 24-hour Cafe Promenade, food aboard Adventure of the Seas is well prepared with plentiful choices, especially considering ship's capacity. The main dining rooms offer flexible "My Time Dining" during dinner. Guests can choose between assigned early or late dining, or opt for flexible dining.

Windjammer is the ship's buffet restaurant with an egg station at breakfast and a carving station at lunch. Vegetarians will do better in the MDR at lunch. The Windjammer, however, is an option for the nights when flexibility is expected. The buffet features the items offered on the main dining room menu. The Italian-themed Giovanni’s Table charges a US$20 per-person cover charge (specialty beverages, wine, beer and soda are paid separately), and offers a multi-course meal. Johnny Rockets is another specialty eatery, 1950's-style burger joint, where passengers can indulge in hot dogs, burgers, chili fries and onion rings.

Shipboard entertainment options - Fun and Sport

Atmosphere diversity is the key aboard Adventure of the Seas. The Lyric Theater has a great Art Nouveau interior; the solarium pool evokes the glories of Venice; and the large Casino Royal centers on a Hollywood theme. The Duck and Dog Pub is ideal for Anglo-philes, Champagne Bar is very stylish and Jester's Nightclub resonates with a Gothic vibe.

At night, Adventure of the Seas offers two kinds of entertainment - traditional-style productions (singing and dancing shows) presented in The Lyric, and goofy episodes like "Love and Marriage". Bar venues offer various musical performances aimed to please everybody at any time with classical guitar, jazz and country. Beyond the usual, where this cruise vessel excels is the unique, like Studio B ice rink which hosts "Cool Art - Hot Ice" - worth the effort to get a ticket (free of charge but the venue is tiny, so tickets are limited).

As one of the first passenger ships returning to NYC after the Sept 11 attacks, Adventure of the Seas is in deep connection with this city.

The ship's official maiden voyage began on the 18th of November, 2001 from port San Juan Puerto Rican.

Cruise 2018 itinerary changes due to drydock refurbishment

During the ship's 2016-2018 drydock refurbishment (USD 61 million renovation project) were added two waterslides (Cyclone, Typhoon), Splashaway Bay (waterpark), FlowRider, Izumi (Japanese restaurant),  Chops Grille (steakhouse), Boleros Lounge, Suite Lounge, 100 new staterooms.

However, due to Hurricane Matthew, the ship's drydock in Freeport Bahamas was only partially completed and finished in March 2018. To accommodate the ship's 30-day long dry-dock refurbishment in 2018 (January 31-March 1), RCI had to cancel all Adventure Of The Seas cruises in 2018 scheduled for the period January 13 - February 10.

USD 200 per cabin onboard credit, USD 400 per suite onboard credit (Junior Suite and above grades), flight change fee (due to airline reservation changes) up to USD 200 per person reimbursment for domestic / USA flights and USD 300 per person reimbursment for international flights.
