A spectacular ship with lots of options. Two of our family members went on the zip line. We played mini golf, which was interesting with lots of wind. The ball had a mind of its own! A highlight for me was participation in a Flash Mob with ... Read more

This is our 34th cruise (10th Royal Caribbean) and I am very disappointed with the service and the quality of food onboard. Long lines and little seating in the Wind Jammer Café. The menu changed very little from day to day and ... Read more

After having been on 30 cruises, I would not recommend this ship to anyone. The Windjammer is the same size as on smaller ships which equates to not being able to accommodate the number of passengers on this ship. This is the first time ... Read more

Having been to most ports in the Caribbean several times, we wanted to experience one of Royal Caribbean's super ships rather than the ports. The ports included Labadee, their private resort on the island of Haiti, Jamaica (Falmouth) and ... Read more

Safety is a huge concern for me. I was horrified that our muster station was out in an open deck arena. If there was an issue with the ship in inclement weather we would be exposed and certainly chaos could reign in that environment. I was ... Read more

We had been on the Oasis a few years ago and found that some of the differences on this class of ship took a couple of days to adjust to. This time we knew about this from our Oasis cruise, but it still took a little time to adjust. The ... Read more

Never again will I take this cruise and highly advise you not to either. First: I was horrified that our muster station was out in an over crowded bar, I had to step over tables to find a seat. I felt so uneasy If there was an issue with ... Read more

This is my first time on this ship but I have been in others so I can compare. I know this is not a Crystal or Celebrity line but I would consider that the customer service should be almost as equal on everyone, on this ship is just the ... Read more

This was our 4th cruise, 2nd on RCI. We sailed on the Oasis in May 2015 and decided to check out the Allure. Just like the Oasis with over 6,000 passengers, you'd never know that many people were on board because of its size. There are so ... Read more
