Always wanted to cruise this big ship. The ship was very big so everyone was spread out. We only ate in the MDR one night, ate at Chops, Sabor(mexican) and buffet the rest of the time. We have good food and service at Windjammer because we ... Read more

I cruise for the ship not the ports. This time I was lucky and went to St. Kitts, a port I have never visited before. As for the Allure, it didn't disappoint. Been on the Oasis 3 times before so I knew we would like the Allure also. I do ... Read more

We have sailed on the Oasis several times so we decided it was time to try the Allure. Royal Caribbean has the embarkation process down to a science. It went very smoothly. Because we were in a junior suite, we were able to board ... Read more

I have been sailing, on multiple cruise lines, for the past 30 years. In August 2011, my family and I sailed on the Oasis of the Seas and had an absolutely amazing time. The ship was new, large, had great amenities, and was a positive ... Read more

Sailed on my husband's birthday and wanted this itinerary; St Maartin especially. With the storm Hermine threatening Florida, we left the west coast early and arrived early to the dock. Parking was quite easy and dropping a bag as well ... Read more

We choose this cruise for the ship and not the ports. We had already been to all of the stops before. The ship is huge, just as we expected. That was a good thing and a bad thing. The size was great because there were lot's of things to do ... Read more

We cruised RC for the first time in August on the Allure of the Seas. Previously, we have cruised with Princess, Carnival, and Disney. While I'd not cruise with Carnival again and Princess is not very kid-friendly, we have routinely ... Read more

There is no question that the ship is beautiful. However, i have cruised over ten times with Royal Caribbean and other companies and I would say this was the worst of them all. Firstly, there are too many people. It became quite ... Read more

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
