The Adventure of the Seas is the third of five Voyager-class cruise ships that have been built for the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line. It was constructed by Kvaerner Masa-Yards at the Turku New Shipyard in Finland. The other vessels were the Voyager of the Seas, which was delivered in October 1999 and the Explorer of the Seas, which was delivered in September 2000.

The 140,000gt cruise liner has an overall length of 311m (1,020ft), and an exceptionally large breadth of 38.6m (126ft) at waterline level or 48m (157.4ft) at the bridge wings. Its draught is 8.6m (28.2ft). The height from keel to the top of the funnel is 72.3m (237ft) and the gross tonnage is approximately 137,300t. The total deck area is 137,000m² (1,522,000ft²) with 15,400m² of outside deck areas for passengers.

The ship has a passenger capacity of 3,840 passengers and a crew capacity of 1,180, giving a total number of 5,020 on board. There are 667 crew cabins. The total interior (air conditioned area) area is over 90,000m² of which approximately 30,000m² is public passenger area.

The hotel facilities include 1,557 staterooms. The main passenger cabins are located on decks 2 and 3. The staterooms vary in size from 15m² to 45m². Of these staterooms, 1,077 (69%) have a sea view, and 757 (49%) have balconies. Every stateroom has a mini-bar and a 19in TV. The vast majority of the outside staterooms are fitted with a veranda.

There are 15,500 seats for passengers of which 5,300 seats are in cabins and 2,000 are seats on outer decks.

The layout features a four-deck-high horizontal walkway called the royal promenade. The length of the promenade is almost half the ship's length, with an eleven-deck-high atria called the centrums at either end. Almost 10% of the Adventure's staterooms face the royal promenade with bay windows.

The propulsion machinery consists of three azimuthing electric 14MW Azipod podded electric propulsion units. The two units on the sides are fully azimuthing, whereas the one at the centreline is a fixed unit. It incorporates an electric AC motor, located inside the propeller pod, which directly drives a fixed-pitch propeller. There are four 3MW tunnel thrusters in the bow. Dynamic positioning systems ensure no anchoring is needed in sensitive coral areas.
