Thumbs down Just returned from Adventure of the Seas.

Thanks for reading. Let me first say that getting on the ship was confusing in the baggage handeling procedures. There was 3 lines one with bags one without and one line Im not sure of. Once on-board we found our room. It was clean and bright. We went to the Windjammer for lunch. There was a good selection of food. It was just okay. We had breakfast in the dining room and wouldn't recommend it. Eggs cold. This happened twice. We arent the dining room breakfast crowd but others in the group did, so we went. All other days ate at the windjammer, and the food was warm. Dining room dinners were again just okay to bad. Food cold tasteless and the selections werent that great. We aren't picky people at all. We have sailed on Carnivale and NCL and still feel Carnival is the best line. On Carnival you could get ice tea and such 24 / 7 try to find it on the RCI not after 7pm. Ice cream always a line on RCI due to the fact they had a sever couldn't get it yourself. We always pick the early dining and the walk around do some activities then go for a bite before bed. Not on RCI no buffet after dinner. There was a place to get pizza and a sandwich but nothing to drink such as ice tea or such. Very disappointed, people said RCI treats you like royality we didn't have that expierence and will stick with Carnival or NCL. Have been on the Victory and Valor and 2 NCL's and we feel like we wouldn't go back on a RCI going forward.

Welcome back. Yep, your experience was pretty much the same as mine, aboard "Mariner of the Seas". I've stuck to Carnival, or even Celebrity since that cruise, and probably won't be returning to RCI for some time. Thanks for posting!

I to agree that Carnival seems to be one of the better cruise lines. Carnival at times has its down falls, but over all service tends to prevail!

I'm off on the Mariner of the Seas on Sunday. I will write a review.

Of the 15 RCCL cruises I have taken, I will say that the Adventure of the Seas was my least favorite.

We had a similar experience in regards to food on the Voyager of the Seas. Thanks for sharing!
