Adventure of the Seas is one of the popular Voyager-class ships sailing for Royal Caribbean, and she has some great features along with a wide range of stateroom and suite options.

They aren’t all equally good though – some are in a more awkward location, or their view is impeded. Some are a little noisier too, which isn’t ideal if you’re a light sleeper.

In this guide, I’ll tell you all about the different stateroom and suite options on Adventure of the Seas, and tips on picking the best one for your cruise.

How To Choose The Best Cabin

I’ve created a free checklist of what to look out for when choosing a cruise cabin. If you’d like a copy, just leave your email address and it will be with you right away.

Adventure of the Seas Room Categories

Adventure of the Seas is one of five Voyager-class cruise ships, although none of them are identical – each is slightly different, and some have different cabin categories.

Adventure has 15 different cabin types to choose from. The cabins can be broken down into four categories: inside, outside, balcony and suite.

Inside Cabins:

  • Interior Stateroom – Sleeps up to 2 or 4

Royal Caribbean’s suites come with not only more space, but also a huge list of extra benefits. You can see those here: Royal Caribbean Suite Perks.

Many people will be just as happy going for a cheaper room – an Inside Stateroom is often ideal for a short cruise to Perfect Day at CocoCay.

However, if you have the budget for it, there are some staterooms and suites which are much, much bigger. So, next, let’s have a look at how the rooms on Adventure of the Seas compare in terms of square footage…

Adventure of the Seas Room Sizes

The cabin sizes on Adventure of the Seas vary a lot. The largest suites are almost twelve times the size of the smallest staterooms!

There’s also some variation with cabins of the same type. Certain interior and ocean view cabins are 60% bigger than others. However, before you get excited about the possibility of booking a huge cabin, these are wheelchair-accessible cabins and so they’re only available for the people who need them.

If you do want a large cabin, there are some very big outside staterooms and suites to choose from.

Adventure of the Seas Rooms From Smallest to Biggest:

  • Studio Interior Stateroom – 106 sq ft
  • Interior Stateroom – 160 to 256 sq ft
  • Ocean View Stateroom – 161 to 276 sq ft
  • Promenade View Interior Stateroom – 167 sq feet
  • Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony – 198 sq ft

Adventure of the Seas Deck Plan

When choosing the best stateroom for your cruise, the deck plan can give you lots of useful information such as:

  • Where your cabin is located
  • The size of your cabin and balcony in square feet
  • What types of extra beds are provided e.g. sofa beds or Pullman beds

Should You Pick Your Room Or Not?

When you book a Royal Caribbean cruise online, you’ll often see two prices, which look like this…

choose room

Royal Caribbean usually gives guests the choice to select their room for an extra fee. If you opt not to choose your own room, you’ll be assigned what’s known as a ‘Guarantee Stateroom’.

What’s a Guarantee Stateroom?

On a cruise, a guarantee room guarantees that you’ll receive a cabin in that category (e.g. interior stateroom) or higher (if you’re lucky enough to be upgraded).

Benefits of choosing your stateroom number:

  • Choose your preferred location on the ship
  • Book two cabins next to each other
  • Avoid undesirable cabins

Booking Multiple Cabins

If you want interconnecting cabins that have a door between them, you will have to pay to pick your own room.

Tip: For a family of four, it’s sometimes cheaper to get two interconnecting cabins than to get one cabin that sleeps four.

Connecting door on Adventure of the Seas

If you just want cabins next door to each other, you can opt to let Royal Caribbean choose your room and request that your cabins are nearby. However, there’s no guarantee that they will be.

If you have adjacent balcony cabins, you can ask your stateroom attendant to open the balcony dividers to create one large balcony. You do not need interconnecting rooms to do this. If you’re friendly with your neighbours, the partition can be opened, as long as everybody agrees.

Adventure of the Seas Cabins to Avoid

One of the main reasons why people choose their own cabin number on a cruise is to avoid ending up in one of the worst rooms on the ship.

If you choose a cabin that’s in a noisy location, a long walk from anything or has an obstructed view from the balcony, it can put a real downer on your trip.

Here are the cabins to avoid on Adventure of the Seas…

1. Noisy Cabins on Adventure of the Seas

2330 to 2358, 2630 to 2658: Cabins at the aft end of Deck 2 are the closest to the ship’s engines and so you may experience some engine noise and propeller vibrations in these cabins. They are also beneath the main dining room.

2240, 2233, 2235 and 2536: These cabins are right next to the Royal Theatre so you may expect some noise during performances and rehearsals.

Tip: If you only want one cabin, avoid the cabins with interconnecting doors. Cabin doors are never as soundproof as walls, so you may be able to hear your neighbours.

3540 and 3240: These cabins are located right next to public bathrooms.

3600 to 3616: These cabins are beneath Boleros bar and so there may be noise until the small hours.

6575, 6577, 6579, 6581, 6583, 6587, 6589, 6591, 6593, 6595 and 6597: These Promenade View Interior Staterooms are located directly above the Duck and Dog Pub on Deck 5. Aside from the fact that people on the promenade on Deck 6 and your neighbours can see right in, these cabins have also been reported as being noisy until after midnight as people gather, chat and sing outside the pub.

1248 to 1305 and 1548 to 1605: These staterooms and suites are located directly beneath the pool areas. This could mean that you can hear some noise from deck chairs being dragged across the floor in the morning. Early risers should have no problems here, though.

2. Rooms That Are a Long Walk From Anything

9465, 9467, 9469, 9471, 9473, 9475, 9477, 9479: These cabins are a really long way from the elevators. All cabins right at the back of the ship are far from the elevators, but this problem is made so much worse on Deck 9, because you have to walk right to the end of the ship and then go back on yourself to reach your cabin!

On the deck plan below, you would have to follow the red line to take you from the nearest elevator to your cabin. This distance is about 500 feet, which is a really long way if you struggle with walking or are carrying a child.

I accidentally booked cabin 9465 on Mariner of the Seas, which is a similar ship. This is the furthest cabin from the elevators on the whole ship! I wouldn’t mind myself, but my child had a condition which means that she can’t walk too far without getting tired. I called my travel agent and they changed it for me with no problems.

3. Cabins With Obstructed Views

Aft cabin and suites: Aft balconies are the ones right at the back of the ship that look out to where the ship has been. On most cruise ships, aft balconies offer the best views of all. This is not so on Adventure of the Seas!

Due to the design of the ship, the aft cabin balconies aren’t at the rear edge of the ship. There’s an extra area between the balcony and the end of the ship. This means that steel structures partially obstruct your view looking out and completely obstruct your view when you look down.

Whilst the view from the aft balconies seems to be less than ideal, these cabins actually get great reviews online. One advantage of the aft cabins on Adventure of the Seas is that the balconies are much larger than standard balconies on the port and starboard sides.

If you do want to go for an aft balcony, I’d recommend choosing a corner one for the biggest balcony space and the least obstructed view.

Best Deck on Adventure of the Seas

Many people ask which is the best deck on Adventure of the Seas. In fact, there isn’t one deck that’s the best, but there are three decks that are particularly good if you want a quiet room that’s not too far from the action.

Decks 7, 8 and 9

If you’re looking for a nice quiet room on Adventure of the Seas, you can’t go wrong with Deck 7, Deck 8 or Deck 9. All cabins on these decks only have other cabins above and below them. This creates a buffer from the noise of the public areas.

Best Rooms on Adventure of the Seas

The best cabins on Adventure of the Seas are very much down to personal preference. For some people, the cheapest inside cabins are the best. Others prefer a spacious room with panoramic windows. Whereas for some cruisers, a balcony is an absolute must.

Here are some Adventure of the Seas rooms which you should look out for as they offer something special…

BEST INSIDE: Promenade View Interior Stateroom

It’s pretty rare for an inside stateroom to have a window. Although you won’t be able to see the sea, having a window which looks out over the promenade can be great for those who enjoy people watching.

Even if you keep your curtain closed the whole time, you can make use of the window seat which is an extra area that standard inside cabins on Adventure of the Seas don’t have.

BEST OUTSIDE: Spacious Panoramic Ocean View Stateroom

The windows in outside cabins vary in size. On some ships, you’ll have just a small porthole above the bed. On Adventure of the Seas, however, the windows in many of the cabins are very large indeed.

I particularly love the window in this Spacious Panoramic Ocean View Stateroom which is located at the front of the ship, high up on Deck 12. This cabin is also really big, even larger than the most spacious balcony cabins.

BEST BALCONY: Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

There are two types of Royal Caribbean Adventure of the Seas balcony room – standard and spacious. Whilst you may expect the spacious one to be better, and in some ways it is, I just don’t think that the extra space is worth the extra price.

In fact, with the spacious balcony cabin, you get only five square feet more space in your room and four square feet more space on your balcony. That’s not even enough room for an extra chair, so you probably won’t even notice that your room is any bigger.

Be sure to look at the price difference before you make the decision to upgrade to a spacious balcony.

BEST SUITE: Royal Suite

The Royal Suite is the top suite on any Royal Caribbean ship. On Adventure of the Seas, the Royal Suite sleeps up to four people and, at 1260 square feet, it is more than twice the size of any other suite on the ship.

Of course, a photo would never do this suite justice, but take a look at the video above to see what you can expect from the Royal Suite with its private hot tub on the balcony and baby grand piano.
