Adventure of the Seas

Our Ship Review
Deal Expert / Travel Blogger

Royal Caribbean’s Voyager Class is a family of five, and the 3,114-passenger Adventure of the Seas — the “middle child” — has perhaps the most appropriate name, given the multiple heart-pounding activities on board. Passengers can skate (on ice in Studio B), rock climb, scream their way down the twisting Perfect Storm waterslides, and even say, "I do" in the Skylight Chapel. The outdoor movie screen was added during the ship's 2014 dry dock, and additional amenities and activities were added during 2016 and 2018 refreshes — but unlike its “Amplified” siblings Voyager of the Seas, Mariner of the Seas, and Navigator of the Seas, Adventure of Seas had its turn postponed by the pandemic.

What We Love

The Royal Promenade: This atrium-like street of shops, bars, and restaurants is featured on all of Royal Caribbean's Voyager-, Freedom-, and Oasis-class ships, and its interior balcony rooms give it a vibrant, neighborhood feel.

Living Vicariously: Even if you opt to play it safe, watching others get their pulse racing while surfing on FlowRider or spiraling down the Cyclone and Typhoon racer slides will boost your mood as you retreat to the Vitality Spa or one of the three pools and six whirlpools, including those in the adults-only Solarium.

Best Known For

Having Something For Everyone: Athletes can go big with heavy-duty cardio in the gym or take it easy with a round of mini-golf on the nine-hole Adventure Dunes course. The party crowd can rub elbows in the Duck & Dog Pub or sip seductively in the Champagne Bar. Music lovers are able to enjoy it sultry at Boleros and soft at the Blue Moon Jazz Club.

Honoring the Heroes of 9/11: Christened in October 2001, Adventure of the Seas has four godparents — two New York City firefighters and two members of the NYPD.

Who It's Best For

Families Seeking Value: Voyager-class ships have enough fun features to keep kids and teens entertained — plus affordable cruise fares that will make mom and dad happy.

Partners-To-Be: The Skylight Chapel, located at the highest point on the ship, can accommodate up to 40 guests for a wedding at sea.

Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

Cool with Caution: If your idea of a cool adventure is to ice skate, pack a sweater. It is, after all, ice skating.
