    For this to make sense you need to know that we have recently been on Adventure of the Seas.

     
    We were sat watching the TV last night, our eldest little girl who is 9 was sat watching videos on YouTube, all of a sudden she takes her earphones off and says “mam, dad do you know that Allure of the Seas, Oasis of the Seas, Harmony of the Seas and Symphony of the Seas are much better than our ship” the reason she gave was that they had a robot that makes you drinks, made us both laugh.

    A Brit here.
    What is this wash cloth you talk about? Is it like a small towel, say 8 x 8 inches? If so ive never seen one in a hotel in the uk, we would call them a flannel in the UK. They used to be common in the 80's/90's but not now, I dont know anyone that uses one.
    Im sure a hotel could provide one, ask for a flannel though, they will know exactly what you are talking about.

    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.

    We will (hopefully) be on our flight to Miami for a few nights there before we get on Adventure for 8 nights 😀
    I say hopefully as the cruise and flights (British Airways) were booked through Thomas Cook, we should be finding out this afternoon if everything is ok wiht the flights and cruise. RC have posted on their website that they are honouring all booking made through Thomas Cook and will be contacting everyone in sail date order. With us being only 4 weeks out and having paid the balance of both flights and cruise about 8 weeks ago we are keeping our fingers crossed that Thomas Cook have paid them both.

    We are going to take ours on the first day when we go in October, im not sure if they will want to stay though. They are 5 and 9 and are always a little apprehensive to go in kids clubs initially but end up loving them, but being in different age groups im not sure if they will actually want to go in.

    We are 9 weeks out from flying to Miami for a few nights pre cruise on Adventure, it has been booked since last October and I have been boring my wife with information ever since haha.
    Whenever we go anywhere I research and look into everything in as much detail as possible were as she just books it then turns up on the day 🤣

    Bit of both, on our next one we had it included in the cost (UK Offer) but would still buy it as we are pretty heavy drinkers and would defiantely work out cheaper.
