Default Adventure of the Seas

:x Stay away from Adventure of the Seas. Surly unresponsive staff, dirty rooms, a Captain who is more concerned about his staff than passengers, poor on-board activities, and don't expect to get what you asked for. This ship is a real meat factory.

lancer1945,

Most people who frequent these boards, myself included, tend to ignore a post such as this. It appears as if you have a personal axe to grind here. If you have a problem with the cruise or cruiseline, their customer service department is the proper forum for fixing those grievences.

If you want others here to pay attention, you should submit a real review with all the information, both good and bad concerning your cruise with the details of what you think went wrong.

If you are looking for sympathy from others, flamming RCI's Adventure of the Seas on the RCI board here without specifics will probably not get you whatever you are seeking here. If, however, you put your grievences in a review, trying to be as objective as possible, maybe there will be some on the board who can assist with getting satisfaction from RCI if that is truly what you desire, or maybe we can do our best to explain what or why some things happen onboard a cruise ship.

Sorry Lancer, but I think you must be talking about some isolated incident that may have happened to you. But your comments certainly do not speak for the rest of us. I was on AOS in December and found the staff on this ship to be just as friendly, accommodating and hospitable as on any other RCI ship. And, specifically talking about the captain...I had the good fortune of being able to take a bridge tour after which he invited about 8 or 9 of us into his private stateroom to talk with us. He could not have been nicer to us and from what I heard from others who saw him on the ship after that, he was just as friendly then.
As blueliner wrote...if you have a personal axe to grind, contact client relations at RCI...this isn't the venue. Nor will you get much sympathy since it's on the Royal Caribbean threads.

AOS is on the list of my all time FAVORITE cruises. I had a blast and the ship was great, wonderful food, and tons of fun. The Captain, on the other hand...did leave a bad taste in my mouth. He was very rude.

Thanks DTW. I think posters like this do a great disservice, both to those who may have a real legitimate grievance, and to those who haven't been on a particular ship or cruise line they are considering and see a post like this.

We all understand things can go wrong on a cruise, and if your complaint is legitimate, you can work out those problems with the cruise line. I consider myself lucky in that I have not had any major problems with any cruise line or ship. A few very minor problems that the ship personnel themselves or the customer service dept. has handled quickly and very well I might add. Unfortunately, on these boards we usually only hear the complainers side of the story, not any other version of the story unless another poster here was also on the cruise.

I haven't been on the AOS yet, and I've read many reviews, both good and bad about AOS, but I am really looking forward to my cruise on her this fall. It's all about expectations, and I've been on enough RCI ships to have realistic expectations for my cruise, and enjoy it no matter what.

And if there is anyone on this board who could possibly know that more than I (probably many) it's Dave the Wave! He knows how to enjoy EVERY cruise!

Well we shall see if OP returns to post more details on exactly what was wrong on his sailing.

"Poor onboard activities" I would really like to know what he meant by that?? More details please!

Blue you will have a great cruise on Adventure!!
