The Start of the Adventure of the Seas
The Adventure of the Seas made its debut in 2001 as the Royal Caribbean International's third in line cruise ship in the Voyager class. The Voyager-class ships are among the largest passenger vessels in the whole world. Even if Adventure of the Seas today is superseded by the huge Oasis-class and Freedom- class cruise ships, it is still among the largest. This ship is still in the limelight as one of those cruise ships that offer many not-the-ordinary cruise activities like the rock-climbing wall, ice-skating ring, roller blading track, and not to forget the strings of bars, cafes, and retail stores found in the Royal Promenade on the cruise ship itself.
This ship has designed its interiors with larger venues such as the Imperial Lounge and Lyric Theatre along with the themed rooms that spell "welcoming and comfy." This ship is a sure hit with the refined travelers as well as the first timers.
Life onboard the Adventure of the Seas
Dress Code for the Passengers
The dress code is mostly casual except for two formal nights where the female passengers wear short cocktail dresses and the male passengers are geared in suits. Other than that, passengers are free to adorn smart casuals with a touch of their own style.
The average age of the passengers range between 35 to 55 plus and this ship is one of the favorites for families. In fact, Adventure of the Seas is a great way to cruise for families and couples. For any type of group, you will always find impressive facility. For example, a business group has access to a conference room; families have different options for activities depending on their age group. Interestingly, the daily compass is printed in six languages because of the huge international diversity onboard.
If you are looking for an active cruise filled with activities even onboard, Adventure of the Seas will not disappoint you. The activities are designed to accommodate the taste and style of all passengers beginning with the traditional to the absolutely contemporary passengers. During the day you can keep yourself busy with activities like rock climbing, bingo, horse racing, dancing, art and craft workshops, seminars, art auctions, different contests, etc. At the pool side you have a band that entertains the guests with lively Caribbean music all through the day. In the evenings you can enjoy the conventional production shows. The bars also offer a steady stream of musical performances like western or country jazz, classical guitars, etc. Another must see aboard the Adventure of the Seas is the "Cool Art-Hot Ice," show. Passengers do not need to pay for the show, but due to the space constraint, the tickets are limited.
The food is well prepared no matter where you get it from--the buffet or the dining room-- and you also get a wide array of choices. The "My Time Dining" feature is available which gives the guests the option to pick a mealtime of their choice within a timeframe. The menu is nothing like gourmet-created specialties but the food is good with fine choices for vegetarians and non-vegetarians. The delights offered in the ship include the Atlantic cod, Black Angus top sirloin, chicken breast, and rigatoni with marinara sauce.
