This was our 9th Cruise, eight of our cruises have been on a Disney ship and this was our first Royal Caribbean cruise. The ship is huge! So much to see and do each day that you will never get bored. My five star review is based on ... Read more

Our family of 9 (52yrs-10yrs) enjoys a Christmas cruise every year instead of gifts. We chose Allure because of its amenities, and I'm afraid Allure's size was detrimental to our Ft. Lauderdale airport (FLL) is minutes away from the ... Read more

For a ship of this size (The Allure of the Seas) the cuisine surpassed my expectations. Although we dined in three of the specialty restaurants, considering the quality and variety of food in the dining room, it was not necessary to eat ... Read more

I won this cruise in a poker tournament on another Royal Caribbean cruise. If it had been our first cruise we would never cruise again. It was our first time on the Allure, never again. Lines for everything, from the elevators to ... Read more

This was our second time on Allure of the seas. We did not do all the shows this time because we saw them 6 months ago. We had a boardwalk balcony 9729. It was the very last room and you could watch the aqua shows if you stood up. This ... Read more

We were excited to try RC for the first time, but will not return. Overall, Allure was just far too big with way too many people/kids for our liking and we could see that this line is more geared to a younger group (we usually sail with ... Read more

I have cruised on the Allure before and enjoyed it more the first time. I am surprised they haven't added the tubes and water slides you see on all the other ships in port. Because this ship is SO BIG, you feel more like cattle being ... Read more

I have traveled with RCL since 2005 and I had never (to this point) been disappointed with their food, service, or shipboard experience so I was looking forward to taking my grandchildren (both adults) on the Allure of the Seas. We ... Read more

Had a great time on our first cruise. Paid extra for specialty dining on 4 of the 7 nights and it was well worth it. We especially enjoyed 150 Central Park and ended up eating there twice. Our waiter Ardee was great! The Chef's Table ... Read more

My girlfriend has taken this cruise before on the very same ship with her departed husband. We both liked the price quoted for a room. I liked the fact that the ship was huge and I would have a lot to do onboard. I love only unpacking ... Read more

We did back to back on the Allure to try something different. We had sailed on the Oasis twice before so it felt familiar. Pre cruise hotel stay at Sun Tower Hotel Suites medium size suites I highly recommend. Boarding was quick as usual ... Read more

Large ship with many areas for all type of travelers. Activities for those active travelers such as zip lining, wave rider, knee boarding, basketball, volleyball, and ping pong. For those seeking less activity and serenity there is ... Read more

This was perhaps one of our greatest ships to experience. It was truly a floating city. No disappointments there. We chose this cruise as a getaway just to experience the Allure. It exceeded our expectations. The entertainment was ... Read more

Don't trust the pictures when you book your room make sure it is not a connecting room if that is your thing. I did not want or appreciate the connecting room with no couch and could hear everything neighbors said---- that is so not ... Read more

Choose this cruise because friends wanted to experience a large ship after being on the EOS for a 4 day cruise. When we booked last February we were told Oasis was full but could get us on the Allure; since we had enjoyed our Oasis cruise ... Read more

We went on this cruise specifically to accompany our daughters who wanted to go on the Allure. We have been to the Caribbean many times and were not necessarily keen on the idea but the Allure interested us. I was very impressed by the ... Read more
