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

Getting onboard went very fast and they were well organized. The veranda stateroom is small with a very small counter in the bathroom, large enough for a tooth brush and a glass of water. The Windjammer dining is ok for breakfast ... Read more

The Allure of the Seas is a really beautiful ship. The cabins are some of the nicest I have experienced. Also, the ship itself was amazing. I liked that it doesn't have the average cruise ship configuration. Some of the stand outs are ... Read more

Between the grumpy pushy crowds, name calling drunks in the elevators, persistent upselling EVERYWHERE... this was not a good experience. Other contributors talked about the unavailability of shows, how about if the shows were consistently ... Read more
