I am someone who always reads reviews.  I have learned that I should take about 50% of what I read.  The people who complain about everything on a cruise, from service to food to entertainment, I don't believe are capable of ... Read more

My wife and I had a great time on the Allure. This was our 10th cruise and was one of the best. I have been wanting to sail the Oasis class since their inception, but was skeptical about traveling with 6000+ passengers. We are so glad that ... Read more

This ship is different from others due to the Central Park And Boardwalk areas. This is a great feature on the Oasis class ships. A must have is a cabin in one of these areas. Our Boardwalk view balcony cabin provided both a view of the ... Read more
