Not a nice cruise, a smokey ship where smoking is allowed even in the no smoking areas, as a Brit did not enjoy the Spanish majority of paasengers habit of pushing and shouting whereever they are,even at the dining table. Great food in the Mozart dining room but windjammer is a total bun fight,hard to get a seat as passengers save seats for the rest of their family/friends, sit at the tables even when finished eating,another Spanish habit, same with bookingsunbeds. expensive for drinks with...

Disappointing! Smoking throughout most of the ship (inside and out)made many areas virtually uninhabitable. We have sailed with RCI before and this was far more "down-market" and low key.There seemed no escape from the noisy "belly-flop" and "sexy man" competitions around the pool that serve to epitomise the tone and flavour of the cruse. Perhaps this company have focussed on providing an experience that is less formal and luxurious, leaving Celebrity to provide a more "special"... (read more)

Just returned from my first crusise with my family and 2 other families. The Adnenture of the seas was very impressive for size, cleanliness and public rooms. We embarked in Malaga and stopped at Sardinia, Corsica, Rome and Palma. Sardinia was disapointing but the other 3 were excellent.The choice and quality of food was superb. All the staff were friendly, the entertainment was excellent and catered for all tastes. The drinks were expensive but that was not a surprise, the brochure states... (read more)

beautiful clean ship and all staff friendly and helpful
plenty to do day and night great ports of call
disappointed that on top of 15% service tax there was an additional 7% spanish tax which we were not advised of in advance of cruise
APPROX 80% of the passengers were Spanish and the cruise director was spanish and first intoductions at shows were in spanish with jokes and then in english no jokes.Pool party only catered to the spanish passengers this is our 3rd royal caribbean cruise and... (read more)

for the frist time in the med we felt the crew couldn't cope with the influx of spanish as we found out they had been offered a week for 600 euros a couple we as we paid £1000 a week apprantly this was a special offer to only our spanish friends who not only were ignorant but ignored all cruise protocal eg dress codes common curtisey to staff and fellow guests,but besides that we had a good trip. why wer't we offered an upgrade seeing you had plenty of cabins free and we paid a lot more than...

The ship is well organized and as noted the service is superb.
The food is very good and those who expect gourmet dinning are unrealistic.
Getting 3,000 + passengers on and off ship is well organized and again, its 3,000 people and probably 9,000 pieces of luggage.
The ship is immaculate.
The entertainment is highly enjoyable.
The ports of call are accommodating and well kept. It pays to do some research on your own to determine how you want to spend your time and money. The buyers regret on... (read more)

We bought their hot deal special right from the site. Ended up being $781 Canadian including taxes. We had an inside cabin with promenade view window. We booked the flight separately, if you choose to do this then you have to transport your own luggage. If you book the flight with Royal, then there is a guy waiting to take your luggage at the airport.
We took a van size taxi, we had 5 in our group. Cost was around $20, really good for 5 people. The driver was like a tour guide, really... (read more)
