Default Back from the Adventure!!!!

We got back from our honeymoon yesterday (6/15) and had an awesome time on Adventure of the Seas!! Everything was perfect, the crew was friendly, helpful, and everything ran smoothly! We ate at the dining room once because after meeting our fake and pretentious tablemates we decided to stay away. They pounced on us for not being at dinner on Sunday night and basically interrogated us when we ran into them once or twice during the cruise. We didn't let it bother us and had a wonderful time on the ship. We ate at Portfino's once and had a free bottle of champagne which made up for our dining room experience. Captain Remo was the perfect captain and and seemed like he was straight out of the seafaring days of the Titanic. Wish we had been at St. Thomas longer and Antigua was completely awful and the worst of the ports of call except for the Jolly Roger Party cruise we took.

Any questions just e-mail me or write back here. We are hooked on cruising now and depressed from the typical vacation let down.

P.S The towel animals were a bonus, the toilet flushing sounds were memorable and our cabin steward was awesome.

Fox,
You will have a great time and it was more than I expected. We did the following excursions:

St. Maarten - Shipwreck Cove snorkeling and afterwards we sailed down the coast and got a tour plus free rum punch and an open bar. ( worth every penny)

Antigua- Jolly Roger Ship ( the rope swing, walking the plank, and rum punch made this a great experience, plus we got to lay on the beach also )

Barbados- Atlantis Submarine ( we went down 120 ft. and saw coral, many fish, etc. Very interesting but a little hyped up in the advertisment).

St. Thomas had great snorkeling &shopping, along with St. Lucia. The other ports were good , except for Antigua. In Antigua beware of the markets because the people are in your face and the pressure is high.

I wish we had been at St. Thomas and St. Maarten longer but we had an awesome time and we are hooked on cruising now. The ship and crew were helpful and always there for you.

Jay

If you guys had horrible table mates, you should have talked to the maitre'd (spelling?). He could have changed you guys.

We lucked out with our two cruises on Royal. Last year on Voyager, my family got matched with another family with a child a year older than mine. We hit it off right away and ended up spending a lot of time with them--it helped everyone have a great time.

This year, we got matched with another family--this time with two kids. My daughter was right in the middle of the ages, and she made friends with both kids. Everyone got along, and we had a blast again, hanging out with these folks.

Royal seems to do a great job matching up tablemates (at least with us!)
