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

Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly. We were amazed. It literally took us less than 15 minutes for both. They have this down to a science. The ship was beautifully like a 4 start hotel with beautifull art all over and great ... Read more

We took this cruise with my daughter, her family of 4, and my sons 2 boys (both teens). We had the boys in our room. D2-8598. It was cramped, when the sofa was converted to a bed, but still doable. The larger deck made it comfortable ... 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

First off - wonderful ship. So much to do, you can't go wrong. Now, the practical (more helpful stuff) - Dining - There are about 11 places to eat free. Windjammer buffet is crazy crowded during 'traditional' meal times. But it ... Read more

A family group of 11. Myself, wife and 1 daughter (all former cruisers). 1 sister, 1 daughter, 1 son-in-law and 5 grandkids (all first-timers). Worst part is getting a large group like that to the ship (and back) easily. Flight costs were ... Read more

The trip started the day before embarkation. We stayed at the Lago Mar in Ft Lauderdale. The hotel was pricey but what a fun place to stay. We were right on the beach and actually got up at 4:30 in the morning to walk down to the mouth of ... Read more
