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

We traveled with our two adult children on the Thanksgiving cruise. They had an interior stateroom and we splurged with a Central Park view with balcony. The rooms were just as we expected having cruised with Royal in the past on Mariner ... Read more

Group of 43 and 13 guests in our immediate group. I did not like taking the elevators as we had to wait a long time and it seemed to stop at every floor. The pools were great, enjoyed the hot tub, wave runner and zipline. I'm 56 yrs old ... 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

We've cruised 7 times (Gold Mem. w Royal Caribbean) and by far this ship was the biggest disappointment. All show, comedy routines were sold out Day 1. Tried lunch day 2 and the line out the door at the Windjammer, so we tried the dining ... Read more

I would have given this cruise a 3 out of 5 but thinking back on it it was a below average experience. I've Cruised Royal Caribbean before on their smaller ship to the bahamas and had a great time but I don't remember the food being ... Read more

We have waited years to sail on Allure ... the prices have increased rather than decreased so we took advantage of a two-night Getaway sail that was available this past weekend just so we could finally see the ship! Cabin: We were on a ... Read more

This is my second cruise, however; it was my first time with Royal Caribbean. I was extremely excited because the Allure of the seas was said to be one of the biggest ships in the world. I would recommend this cruise for singles, or ... Read more

Even though The Allure of the Seas Ship and employees were fantastic, the food and lack of headroom were below average! They promised me 7' 6" of headroom in our stateroom, we only had about 6' 9" of headroom. Being 7' 2" ... Read more

The Allure is a big ship and you need to be prepared for it when sold out like our cruise was. That said RC should not have made the venues so small for the amount of people on board. Time after time you could not get in to bars that ... Read more
