This was my 3rd cruise, but my husband's first. We LOVED the Allure. We would definitely go on another cruise on this ship. The ship is so large and has so much to do. We did not get to see or experience everything on the ship. The ... Read more

We had a great time on Allure of the Seas. As many other reviews have stated, the ship is HUGE. I never really felt like it was overcrowded though, except for 1 day at sea when they closed the upper pool deck because of wind, that day was ... Read more

This was our second cruise, the first being on Solstice of the Seas in the Mediterranean almost seven years ago through Celebrity (RC's high end line). The ship was very impressive and the staterooms a pleasant surprise for size, ... Read more

We have been cruising Disney with our small children but decided to save a few bucks and go with RC on this one. It was by no means poor or below average, but we couldn't help but compare against what we are used to (Disney). If you ... Read more

This was our 32nd cruise and 12th on RCL. This review is in 3 parts; why I chose Allure, How RCL performed, and my opinions. Several years ago we saw the Allure and decided it was just too large a ship for us and we will never go on ... Read more

We love to sail on Allure of the Seas because it suits our cruising style perfectly. This ship caters to the active and fun-loving but might be overwhelming for the more sedentary. The best part about sailing out of Port Everglades is ... Read more

I would have rated this a 5-star normally, but the sheer number of people cause me to downgrade my rating. Checking in was a very simple process that took less than 10 minutes from the time we entered the terminal. The wait time to ... Read more

If you have ever been on the Oasis, this ship is built almost exactly like it as far as the lay out and venues. Embarkation was typical. Waited in a short line to check in, had no problems. Got on board and went straight to find lunch. ... Read more

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 was our first cruise with Royal Caribbean, but our 7th overall (the others were Princess and Carnival) and it was a great first impression of RC. I'll review RC while comparing the experience to our other cruises. Embarkation: We ... 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
