We choose this cruise for the ship and not the ports. We had already been to all of the stops before. The ship is huge, just as we expected. That was a good thing and a bad thing. The size was great because there were lot's of things to do ... Read more

We cruised RC for the first time in August on the Allure of the Seas. Previously, we have cruised with Princess, Carnival, and Disney. While I'd not cruise with Carnival again and Princess is not very kid-friendly, we have routinely ... Read more

There is no question that the ship is beautiful. However, i have cruised over ten times with Royal Caribbean and other companies and I would say this was the worst of them all. Firstly, there are too many people. It became quite ... Read more

We chose the Allure because we had cruised on Oasis in 2014 and liked it. I think the first time you go on a ship that size, it is quite overwhelming and there is so much to see and do that you just can't get to it all. This time, I felt ... Read more

This was my first cruise ever and will not be my last. I can't even explain how beautiful the ship was and how you didn't feel like you were even on a boat. From the check in process to boarding the ship was a total breeze. It was a ... Read more

The Allure is not a bad ship, and we didn't have a bad time. I think it really depends on what you are looking for. We are more used to higher end than RC, and we booked a Loft suite on the Allure. The new Suite program is very nice, ... Read more
