I would like to start out by expressing my thanks to the many employees of the Adventure of the Seas, from waiters to room stewards to greeters at the Windjammer, servcie desk, and maintainance. You are all a credit to your profession. Special call out to Stacy at the Windjammer and Elmer our room steward. Thank you both for exceeding our expectations and making our cruise the great time it was.
Ship- The AOS, may not look like it did 5 years ago. She needs a little make-up but is very clean. Yes there was a little wear on the carpet, needs a little paint here and there, but it's what is inside that counts. The staff is second to none and they are the heart of this ship.
Food- We ate at the dining room twice during the cruise. The food was great but the 3rd level was very loud from all of the noise below. We had a difficult time trying to have a conversation. So we decided to try the Windjammer for dinner. This was our 4th cruise on RCCL and we have never ate dinner in the Windjammer. Well, we never went back to the dining room. The Windjammer had a great selection of food, it was very quiet and very comfortable. We also a one special night at Portifino's all I can say is WOW. The food and service were worth the $20.00. Best meal I have had in quite sometime. Highly recommend it.
Ports- We loved all of the ports with the exception of St Croix..very beautiful but not an aweful lot to do.
Please be very careful when reading reviews. As I said earlier the AOS might not be the newest ship in the fleet, but she has the biggest heart.
We have already booked her again for either next year or the year after when she gets a bit of a face lift.
