Royal Caribbean's Adventure of the Seas passing by

One of the largest cruise ships this season, the 311 m x 38.6 m Adventure of the Seas, was tonight going northwards in the Sound on its way from Copenhagen to Tallinn. The number of crew is 1.180 and the passenger capacity is 3114.

This is how the Cruise Critic describes the ship, built by Aker Finnyards in Turku
Finland and completed in 2001:

Adventure of the Seas debuted in 2001 as the third in the series of Royal Caribbean's game-changing Voyager-class vessels. Though Adventure has been bypassed in size and amenities by the Freedom-class trio and the massive Oasis-class twins, it's still among the world's larger ships, with a range of the most uncruise-like venues at sea, such as a rollerblading track, ice-skating rink and rock-climbing wall -- not to mention the bustling hub that is Royal Promenade, a shopping mall-esque boulevard of retail stores, bars and cafes. -

This ship is so well designed -- with lots of very distinctly themed rooms and with even the larger venues like the Lyric Theater and Imperial Lounge feeling unexpectedly cozy -- that Adventure of the Seas has the potential to spoil first-timers and even seduce some of us crusty ol' cruise traditionalists.

Next year the Adventure of the Seas is scheduled to receive a major upgrade.
