Adventure of the Seas berthed at Curacao

The Adventure of the Seas is a modern vessel, with every amenity, and comfortable and spacious cabins. We had a cabin at the stern of the ship, which allowed us great views. Phil and Julie were immediately on the deck below us, which allowed us to lower a toy crab suspended over their balcony! We also managed to get our steward to deliver a blow up shark to their cabin, while we were all out. We were also left daily gifts by our steward, in the form of towel art.

Beware of sharks and crabs!

Towel art

Evenings were very busy, with a Carribean sunset starting the proceedings. Prior to dinner we usually visited one of the bars, where we joined in the daily Trivia Quiz. The competition was strong and we only managed to win once.

Sunset and recliners

At dinner we shared the table with two American couples from Louisiana. They were lovely people and our thanks to Frieda and Mervin and Jackie and John for their humour, friendship and entertaining conversations. Also for the pump that helped to blow up the shark!
Shown below is the Dining Room, with the waiters on the stairs entertaining us with their singing. There was entertainment provided every evening. The theatre shows were of a very high standard and our Cruise Director, Richard Spacey, who also came from Southampton UK, was excellent. There was also an Ice Show, with an international cast, which was also fantastic.

Main "street" Parade

A couple of nights there was a parade along the main "street" which had shops, pubs and even a car on it. Whenever we had a moment's rest we could sit on the loungers on our balcony and watch the world go by.

The ship itself is138,000-ton, with accomodation for 3,114 guests. The picture below was taken from the top of the sky-lift at St Thomas.

Day and night provided constant activities for guests, the list is too long to mention. It included wall climbing, roller skating, crazy golf, table tennis, poolside competitions, talent contests, quiz competitions, a library, dancing and various lectures on a host of topics. If you didn't feel up to any of the above, you could always sunbathe or eat in the numerous cafes and restaurants.

The Adventure of the Seas is a wonderful ship. If you get the chance take a cruise on her. We had a perfect holiday, thanks to the professionalism of her captain and crew.
