I was really worried about this cruise after reading some of the reviews but was pleasantly surprised by AOS!! We had a fantastic time! We were a family of 4 and had a balcony room 9622. Dennis was our room attendant and was excellent! The Windjammer and pool were only 2 flights up from us. We were close to the stairs and it was still quiet at night. The shipped was sold out due to spring break and we still felt we could do everything we wanted. We thought the entertainment was outstanding and really enjoyed Bobby the Cruise Director and his staff. They were engaged and went out of their way to include everyone at events. My 8 year old used the kids club in the evenings and enjoyed it. My 12 year old participated in some activities at the teen club but spent a lot of time checking out all the action at different venues.
Food for us was great. The dinners at night got a little long but if you got in right away and ordered first it seemed to go faster. We actually really liked the variety and food in the Windjammer. Again, with 2 boys everyone was happy.
The pool was busy on sea day but totally open on port days. We had fun at the pool parties and tried to get involved in the events listed.
