I enjoyed a mini cruise on board Royal Caribbean’s Adventure of the Seas – and wow what can I say!
As part of the voyager class of Royal Caribbean ships, she had many features included mini golf, ice skating rink & a rock climbing wall, she was like a floating resort!
The main attraction is the Royal Promenade, which runs the length of the ship, spanned over 4 decks. The Royal Promenade contains shops, cafes, bars and shops and is like the central hub of the ship. I had an interior promenade stateroom, which felt like an outside as I had a full window overlooking the promenade and all its activities. At night the entertainers do a street parade, but don’t be put off thinking there will be too much noise in these staterooms, they are well sound proofed.
Throughout the day there is so much entertainment, you can take in an ice-skating show, or if your feeling brave perhaps try the Rock Climbing wall on top deck and beat your fellow racer! Or if you want to sit on top deck in the sun with a book enjoying the weather you can do, the on board library is one of the biggest I have seen at sea with plenty of books.
When it comes to dining and drinking, the choices again are endless. The main dining room holds around 2,000 passengers, or there is Portofino, the Italian restaurant on board. The Windjammer restaurant is the help yourself buffet and provides food throughout the day and the Promenade Café is open for breakfast and light snacks. You have to try Johnny Rockets on board – this is a 1950s style burger restaurant, there is a small cover charge for this, but well worth it to experience the true American dining experience!
After all of that food, you can enjoy the spa and gym facilities. Filled with treadmills, bikes and weights, you aren’t short of space to enjoy a relaxing workout.
The entertainment on board is top class! A new show every night in the Lyric theatre, the shows always contain a very large cast and enjoy some great music and light shows too.
As I previously mentioned, I was in a promenade interior stateroom, which did have views to people watch throughout the day. There are also the usual interior, oceanview, balconies, suites, royal suite, & owners suite if you’re going to push the boat out. !
At the end of the Promenade are the reception and shore excursion counters who are always on hand to assist you throughout the cruise. If you fancy a flutter, the Schooner Bar located below the Promenade, is packed with gaming tables, poker, roulette and slot machines.
I had a great time on board the Adventure of the Seas during her seasons in Europe, she is to be based in the Caribbean for 2015, so why not try a Caribbean cruise on board the amazing vessel! i would hightly recommend
