Ice skating in the Caribbean sounds like an odd activity, but it is possible to do so on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship such as Adventure of the Seas.

This 1,040-foot-long vessel has 14 guest decks that can house a total of 3,807 guests and 1,185 crew members.

It also has an ice skating rink.

Although many Royal Caribbean cruise ships also have skating rinks, Adventure of the Seas is one of the few that promotes free ice-skating shows for entertainment.

Other forms of entertainment include Broadway-style entertainment on a main stage, a casino with 291 slots and 16 tables, video arcade, outdoor movie screen and 15 bars, lounges and nightclubs.

The ship has other recreational activities in addition to the ice skating rink. They include a spa and fitness center, three pools, six whirlpools, a rock-climbing wall, mini golf course, golf simulator, basketball court and in-line skating track.

Family-friendly programs include babies (6 to 18 months), toddlers (18 to 36 months), children (separate programs for 3-5 years, 6-8 years and 9-11 years), tweens (11-12 years) and teens. Teens and tweens have lounge areas and a disco nightclub. The ship also schedules games, contests, classes and lectures.

Like all cruise ships, Adventure of the Seas has a large main dining room for lunch and dinner. Also like major cruise ships, it has other dining options including Windjammer Café for casual meals, a sushi restaurant, Asian-fusion cuisine and a smaller cafe for coffee and pastries/snacks.


All staterooms have twin beds that can convert into king-size beds, private bath, vanity area, flat panel TVs, electric mini-bar and individually controlled air conditioning. The ship also has 26 wheelchair accessible staterooms.

Staterooms fall into four categories from lowest price to highest price: interior, oceanview, balcony and suite / deluxe.

Prices vary based on space and amenities. The most common amenities are windows and balconies.

The standard interior stateroom has two twin beds that convert into a king, a sitting area and 150 square feet of living space. The Promenade stateroom has two twins, sofa, 160 square feet and a bowed window that overlooks the ship's interior Royal Promenade.

The oceanview category has windows for each of its three types of cabins in standard, large and family sizes. They range from 160 square feet to 265 square feet. The family stateroom can handle up to six guests.

Adventure of the Seas has two balcony staterooms. The smallest has 164 square feet of living space and 51 square feet of balcony space. It holds two guests. The “Superior" stateroom has 179 square feet of living space and 52 square feet of balcony. Note that prices vary depending on the deck.

The suite / deluxe category has more space than the other categories plus balconies. They range from the “Junior" option with 264 square feet of living space and 75 square feet of balcony to the “Royal" suites with 1,087 feet of space and 217 feet of balcony. The royal suite also has a separate bedroom, baby grand piano and concierge service.
