Just back from 8 nights on Adventure of the Seas, had a great time. Not really one for writing reviews but here are a few points.
Check in – at the port at about 10.45 and on the ship pretty quickly, only issue we had is the lady who checked us in insisted on seeing our ESTA’s so we had to stand and log into each one on our phone even though we had already been in the US for three days. Having travelled to the US several times we have never been asked to see them by border security when entering the US and were not asked for them when we arrived back after the cruise so thought this was a bit strange, others in our party who checked in separately were not asked for theirs?
Main Dining room – the service was excellent from our two servers and everything I ate was really good quality if not a little cool sometimes but this is to be expected with catering on this scale. They were very accommodating as well, one night there was battered cod on the menus which came with some sort of sauce and rice, 3 or 4 in our group asked if the could have it with chips (French fries) so they could have British Fish and Chips, they even found us a bottle of malt vinegar.
Windjammer - Again excellent choice to eat and everything was of a pretty good quality for a buffet, finding a table was sometimes a bit of a chore but eventually would get one.
Chops – We had the three night dining plan and ate in chops twice, on both occasions the food was excellent, both times I had the black pepper pork and 16oz rib eye, second time I also had the Carpaccio, it was ok but not the best I’ve had. First time the service was excellent, second time it was truly awful, the table was booked for 8.15pm and as we had a 5 and 9 year old they had said if we come a bit earlier and the table is ready we could get in. We ended up arriving at about 8.10pm but there was people still sat at the table, we didn’t end up getting in until about 8.25pm. we didn’t end up leaving until about 10.30pm and that was without having desserts as it was so slow, the waiter was even pushing for an additional tip as well.
Giovannis – Mixed reviews from our group here, I thought is was delicious, had the Carpaccio followed by the Ossobuco. Some didn’t really enjoy what they had. Service was pretty good.
Jonny Rockets – Really enjoyed the Burger here, thought is was pretty good quality. Found our server a bit rude.
Ship – Really liked the ship, liked the size, It was easy to get around, cabin was a bit dated but to be expected with a ship of this age. All the public area and bars were really nice, loved the promenade and sitting outside the Dog and Duck.
Any questions, feel free to ask.
