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

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
