Allure is the largest we have ever cruised. We have cruised many times on various cruise lines, most recently a 10 nighter on Anthem of the Seas, so I will make some comparisons to Anthem. We arrived in FL a few days early and we ... Read more

This was our first time cruising as a husband and wife. We had a great time. Staff was always friendly. Embarkation was quick. We were on the boat by noon, in our room by 1 and had our luggage by 1:30. The ports were beautiful and the ship ... Read more

Wanted to check out this ship - design is not too nice as most of the shopping and dining do not have windows to the outside. You would never know that you are on a ship unless you are on the top decks. Ship was pretty clean and well ... Read more

My two friends and I went along on the cruise with a class reunion group. Dinner in the main dining room was elegant with excellent food and service. I'm not sure of the spelling, but our waiter Thiomas? Thiomer? was fabulous. In addition ... Read more

Embarkation and disembarkation is always a breeze on the Allure. The staff are very quick during this process and wait times are minimal. We prefer the Allure out of the Oasis class ships because of the staff . . . the ENTIRE staff, ... Read more

We wanted to try a very large cruise ship. There was far too much walking on a ship of this size. Because of the layout of the ship, there are only elevator banks near the bow and stern of the ship. Smaller ships have elevators in the ... Read more

The crews are very friendly, always greet you with a smile. The room attendants are very hardworking. They fix the room twice a day and all lines smells fresh. The food is fantastic. So many varieties to choose from. I will cruise ... Read more

Largest ship I have ever sailed on and getting on and off was the fastest and smoothest of all others. The ship is layed out in such a way that it was never felt crowded. There are lots of elevators and generally although often full it was ... Read more

The Allure is one of my favourite ships. Although it is a large ship, the embarkation and disembarkation are faster than other ships. I love the Central Park area and the adults only solarium area. There are lots of healthy food options ... Read more

We were very happy with our time on the Allure of the Seas. The service was excellent. Loved the food in the main dining room. Samba Grill, the Brazilian restaurant, wasn't my favorite but the staff was great. My 11 and 13 year old had ... Read more

AAA recommended it. We were blown away by the shear size of the boat as our hotel shuttle approached it. The "neighborhoods"- Boardwalk, Central Park, Promenade, Casino, Sports- were amazing. The carousel alone blew us away as ... Read more

This was our first time cruising on a mega ship from a US port, as we usually cruise Radiance or Voyager class from Sydney, Australia. We were therefore very excited to try this ship. Check in was relatively fast, helped by the fact we ... Read more

We loved the Allure the first time we went on it two years ago and decided to go again on the Eastern Caribbean itinerary. (The first time we did the Western Caribbean itinerary.) We felt a little rushed on this itinerary initially. We ... Read more

The entertainment was 1st class - and I'm really picky since I've seen Mamma Mia twice on Broadway. Food was great. Really enjoyed 2 specialty restaurants as well. Never seemed that crowded even though a huge ship. Our room was a Central ... Read more

I chose this one for family reasons. I had been on the Allure once before (2014). I feel like there were more activities and less "sales" events the first time. I recall that on the first cruise I had trouble deciding which ... Read more

Central Park on the Allure (and Oasis) is a nice place to relax and 'chill' while listening to the bird calls and taking in the beautiful 'grounds' of live plants and trees. The Rising Tides Bar didn't always keep its posted schedule. I ... Read more

Allure is a exceptional ship. Crew worked very hard in all areas and had very favorable things to say about the ship and the cruise lines. Ship excursions operators have difficulty handling the large volume of passengers in st. ... Read more

Embarkation was a breeze. Rom was ready at 1:00. We had a D2 Balcony. The cabin was nothing special. The layout of the closets was not ideal. Storage is very limited. We were on the Anthem and there was twice the amount of storage space ... Read more

I have cruised multiple times on Royal Caribbean and on Carnival, all on different ships. I found the food on Carnival to be better and more consistent when eating in the main dining rooms, and the shows were more interesting. We traveled ... Read more

We went on this cruise as part of a group, the Iowa Academy of Family Physicians. A huge disappointment was when we got there, they had given away our meeting room, where we were to hold continuing education, to another group. We ended ... Read more

We chose this ship for a birthday celebration. This was our first RC cruise and probably our last. We are platinum on Carnival and enjoy the fun atmosphere on Carnival much better. There is always fun in the disco and dance music ... Read more
