Waited for a whole year to take my children and 2 preschool grandchildren on the biggest ship in the world. Getting onboard was simple, changing tables in the MDR simple, ordering afternoon room service simple, using Central Park cafe for ... Read more

I have been on probably 6 or 7 cruises with Royal Caribbean in the last 15 years. This time I wanted to go on the BIG ONE! I have always thought that a ship couldn't be too big, as I had sailed on Mariner of the Seas previously. I was ... Read more

This cruise will be from the perspective of a 30 year old. I have to caveat it that way because I find that a lot of cruisers are much older than me and may not find my review perspective accurate for their age category. I will however try ... Read more

The things I most enjoyed was the adult sun area, the Solarium cafe, the spa area, the Windjammer for breakfast, our wait staff at dinner, and Mama Mia! Actually, all the shows were amazing, but Mama Mia was my favorite. The comedy ... Read more

Just returned from a 7-night Western Caribbean cruise on Allure OTS. And we loved it! We did Oasis in 2013 and must say we liked Allure more. Although the ship is 99% the same, we think service was better on Allure. The ship still looks ... Read more

This was the second cruise of the year for us. We sailed Freedom of the Seas in January and were somewhat disappointed with that experience. It was refreshing to sail Allure and find a much better experience. So first the not so good ... Read more

Where to start... Royalcaribbean promote their ship experience as "premium", and "all inclusive", but neither is true. The food in the complemtary restaurants is mediocre, at best. And to not have soda included in ... Read more

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

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
