We chose the Allure because we had cruised on Oasis in 2014 and liked it. I think the first time you go on a ship that size, it is quite overwhelming and there is so much to see and do that you just can't get to it all. This time, I felt ... Read more

This was my first cruise ever and will not be my last. I can't even explain how beautiful the ship was and how you didn't feel like you were even on a boat. From the check in process to boarding the ship was a total breeze. It was a ... Read more

The Allure is not a bad ship, and we didn't have a bad time. I think it really depends on what you are looking for. We are more used to higher end than RC, and we booked a Loft suite on the Allure. The new Suite program is very nice, ... Read more

We wanted to experience the ship and its size. The ports were not a draw for us and they were ok. Disappointed with Nassau and not be able to see Atlantis since they required a tour to get into to see it. I was not aware that we could ... Read more

Sailed on Allure of the Seas. Huge ship. From an engineering standpoint extremely impressive, some shows were good, and that's about the best thing I can about the cruise. RCI made this huge ship with tons of room. And for the most ... Read more

We had a great time, but the best part was the entertainment, specifically the Jazz musicians. I will send the first person who can post the last name of Ernesto from Ernesto's Jazz Quartet $5 bucks, because I did not get his last name and ... Read more

I chose RCL because I was interested in the size of the ship. It took us 3 hours to get to the port and upon arrival was met with the most disorganized and confusing drop off, including rude workers and a nasty BSO officer. Who stepped in ... Read more
