Those International Critters … they never miss a birthday. The Critters, a benevolent group of Cruise Critic members who first came together during the inaugural journey of Oasis of the Seas, gathered anew on the December 4 voyage of Allure of the Seas and marked the behemoth’s first year in service. (The 225,282-ton ship launched in November 2010.) Host Elizanessie had a cake made and presented during the cruise. Beyond the celebration, however, the Critters were on a more important mission: The ship’s stop in Labadee, Haiti, afforded the group the opportunity to visit L’Ecole Nouvelle Royal Caribbean and deliver musical instruments (top photo) for the children there. Get all the details on the heart-warming visit and check out the plethora of photos from the event here.
