MS Adventure of the Seas is the third Voyager-class cruise ship operated by Royal Caribbean International that cannot transit the Panama Canal. Voyager-class ships are the fifth largest passenger ships in the world; currently, only Cunard's Queen Mary 2, Norwegian Epic, Royal Caribbean International's Freedom Class and MS Oasis of the Seas ships are larger. She was built in Aker Finnyards in Turku, Finland and completed in 2001. From 2001, she mostly sailed in the Southern Caribbean and departed weekly from the port of San Juan, Puerto Rico. She is now (2010) based in the Mediterranean and offers four or five day cruises from Barcelona
