ADVENTURES OF THE SEAS

We've taken cruising to a whole new level. Enjoy one-of-a-kind features like an ice-skating rink, the Royal Promenade and a rock-climbing wall just for starters. How did we accommodate all of these innovative ideas on one cruise ship? Simple. We built a bigger ship.

Adventure of the Seas Ship Review

  • A wonder of engineering, RCI's “Adventure of the Seas” is a sight to see. Featuring everything from a street fair, rock climbing wall and even an ice-skating rink! This 138,000-ton, 3,114 –guest ship is part of the Voyager class of ships, with innovations highlighting the highest space-per-guest ratio in cruising. Enjoy the enhanced staterooms, expanded dining options and amazing recreational facilities.

  • Main Dining Room - The three-tier dining room features a wide variety of menu items and impeccable service.
  • Johnny Rockets Restaurant - Step into our '50s diner, which features red naugahyde booths, formica counters, a jukebox, burgers, fries and, of course, good old-fashioned malted milk shakes.
  • Windjammer Cafe - This seaside café offers buffet-style breakfasts and lunches. In the evenings, the café's casual atmosphere is complemented by a changing menu and restaurant-style service.
  • Adventure Lyric Theater - Our theater - five stories from orchestra pit to domed ceiling - features contemporary musical stage productions.
  • Conference Center - Our comfortable conference center features state-of-the-art presentation equipment and a variety of meeting rooms.
  • Rock Climbing Wall: Royal Caribbean cruise ships are the only ones in the world to offer rock-climbing walls. Whether it's your first time on a rock wall or if you're a seasoned climber, there are challenges for all levels of experience. Royal Caribbean will provide all of the equipment, including shoes, helmets and harnesses. All you need to do is bring a pair of socks and, of course, your sense of adventure.
  • The Royal Promenade, cruising's first horizontal atrium, is two football fields in length and four decks high. With a wide selection of shops, restaurants and entertainment the Royal Promenade will be the place to be.
  • Ice Skating Rink. Take a shot at a double axle in the only ice skating rink at sea. Or, once the rink is converted to a stage, settle in for an unforgettable show in the same unique area.

    Our final day at sea..... sitting on the balcony just gazing at the water. Strolling around the ship, swimming in the pool, playing mini golf, climbing the rock wall, trying again at some trivia, enjoying the drinks of the day, listening to music at different venues around the ship, playing the slots, seeing towels folded into creatures that visited our stateroom, eating and eating and eating some more. Not wanting to pack and think about having to bring this trip to an end.

    February 1, 2014

    • Sue C

      will miss your post Caroline! at least we have next years cruise to look forward to ...a new bunch of islands and a new ship! xoxo

    So it's Friday and if you are still dreaming along with me we are in Curacao. It's striking seeing all the beautiful colored buildings, walking around the town, visiting the cave and the beach, kyacking and snorkeling and seeing all the beautiful fish. Enjoying our last island getaway....

  • CarolineFCS7

    Been posting on Sue's facebook. In case you missed-
    Sunday- Don't want to be here.

    Monday-Close your eyes. Breathe deeply. Imagine.... Mountain Top, Skyline Drive, downtown shopping, Magen's Bay.... are you there?

    So what was for dinner tonight? Rack of lamb, prime rib, duck, lobster tail, pork scallipone, AND lasagna?!? Escargot, scallops, chilled soup, AND salad?!? Chocolate cake, tiramasu, creme broulette, AND cheesecake?!?

    Tuesday- Eyes still closed. Still breathing deeply. Still relaxed. If its Tuesday, it must be St. Kitts. Ahh.... the train around the island, beautiful shoreline, pretty blue of the sea, jeep ride into the rainforest, monkeys, beach time at Frigate Bay or another beauty. Loving it!

    This trip was so much fun! I had the opportunity to be with a lot of fun women, and visit several islands I had never been to before- St. John, St. Kitts, Aruba, and Curacao. We went to great beaches and had fun days of sun, snorkeling, and relaxation. I am still laughing about that raft water ride in Aruba. Thanks for talking me into that one Sue:). On the boat, the slots tournament was a lot of fun, the food and entertainment was great, and the Royal Caribbean staff was wonderful. Thank you Sue and Janice for all the effort that goes in to making these trips a success!
    Great photos!!

Smiles, Hugs, and waves till we 'meet up' again!

    Thank you Sue and Janice for organizing a wonderful get away in the middle of the cold, brutal winter. I appreciate all you do for me and the group.
    The cruise was really fun, I had a blast even though I was lazy, lying on the beach all day and enjoying the sunshine and water. I did exactly what I wanted to do, get warm and swim all with the help of your hard work. Thank you both!!

I enjoyed spending time with some old friends and made some new friends. I am not sure if I will miss the warm weather or being waited on from the dining staff more... Thomas and Wesley went above and beyond to serve us and always saying it was their pleasure! It was great. Getting ready for work..back to reality :)

  • Jill

    An important heads up for those of us who live alone- it's supposed to be frigid cold weather here part of the time we're away. Remember to keep your heat on at a sufficient level to prevent frozen pipes. I also keep cabinet doors open under sinks to let heat in at the pipes, especially on outside walls.

  • Peggy

    Has anyone made a reservation at the Occidental Grand Aruba resort for the 23rd yet? It is $77, inclusive,from 9-6. Once the reservation is made, the company emails a voucher to be presented to the hotel. I have checked on the transportation and we can either take a cab or a bus to the hotel. My understanding is this is the best beach on Aruba (Palm Beach), and this is where all the nice resorts are. We can always book from the ship, but we will have to pay to access the website from the ship computers to buy and print the voucher. Can anyone please let me know if interested in this? Also if anyone wants to do a snorkeling trip on another island please get in touch. To see what is included in Aruba, and book, go to http://www.caribbeandaypass.com/

    2 · January 15, 2014

    • Jody M

      Hi Peggy, yes I'm definitely in for the Occidental too but it says advanced purchase of the day pass isn't necessary....were you told otherwise ? It's my understanding we can buy it when we get to the hotel. You me and Lisa should hop a cab there, it'll be cheap split three ways and faster :)

      January 16, 2014

    • Janice T.

      Peggy, on the other 2 cruises I've been on, one RC, you could also book excursions from the TV in your cabin. You didn't need Internet for that. I think you can also cancel them.

      1 · January 17, 2014

  • Jody M

    Sue, since Bee and I are flying in on Sunday can you give us your cell number in case so we can find you when we get settled on the ship? I've never met anyone from the group before so I'm nervous that I won't be able to identify anyone.

    2 · January 16, 2014

    Here are my plans for the trip:
    SJ - BEACH/POOL @ HOTEL and would love to visit Old San Juan, read they have a free trolley that takes you to the National Historic Site (which is suppose to have great views).
    St. Thomas - cab to Megan's Bay - shop when heading back to ship
    St. Kitts - Water Ferry to Mr. X's Shiggidy Shack on Frigate Bay Beach, water taxi is $5 each way and offers $2 discount on chairs for taking water taxi:)
    Aruba - Kim I'm with you cab to hotel beach - wing it
    Curacao - may just opt to stay on ship and enjoy an empty ship!

    At this point I am just thinking a R&R

      I'd like to see anything around San Juan but would also wonder if we could check out a little time on a beach for a nice start to our trip as well as a relaxing finish to our cruise.

    "Ladies and gentlemen, the captain has
    turned on the Fly-Fi™ sign. Please feel free
    to roam about the Internet."

    The rumors are true – JetBlue's Fly-Fi™ is real broadband Internet in the sky! This onboard innovation, brought to you by our partnership with LiveTV, delivers a robust online experience much like you would expect at home or work.

    Fly-Fi™ is now available on a very limited number of JetBlue aircraft, and we're working hard to install this new service across our fleet as quickly as possible. While we're in our beta period, our basic web browsing plan, Simply Surf, will be free on flights through June 2014 with a high-bandwidth plan available for purchase.
    COPIED AND PASTED FROM THEIR WEBSITE, FYI
