We took this cruise with my parents, brother, sister-in-law, and nieces (ages 11 and 5) for Spring Break. We boarded on Easter Sunday and found that several of the venues had chocolate eggs for the kids and the young at heart. It was a ... Read more

We took this cruise with my daughter, her family of 4, and my sons 2 boys (both teens). We had the boys in our room. D2-8598. It was cramped, when the sofa was converted to a bed, but still doable. The larger deck made it comfortable ... Read more

My husband and I picked this cruise specifically because my 12 year old daughter wanted to be on an Oasis size ship. The ports visited were St. Thomas, St. Martin and Nassau. Ship: Clean; big without seeming crowded; lots of ... Read more

I had heard in advance this week was going to be a very busy week on the ship. I must say RC did an outstanding job in so many ways! Getting all these people on the boat was incredible. We didn't wait at all. In fact, we have cruised ... Read more

This ship is different from others due to the Central Park And Boardwalk areas. This is a great feature on the Oasis class ships. A must have is a cabin in one of these areas. Our Boardwalk view balcony cabin provided both a view of the ... Read more

First off - wonderful ship. So much to do, you can't go wrong. Now, the practical (more helpful stuff) - Dining - There are about 11 places to eat free. Windjammer buffet is crazy crowded during 'traditional' meal times. But it ... Read more

We were cruising with 8 of our family and friends. At first we were were concerned that such a big ship with so many people during spring break would be too crowded, but there were only a few times when the crowds were overwhelming (the ... Read more

Our 7th cruise with RCL(2nd Allure) was for spring break with my wife and 2 teenage boys. We were amazed again at all of the things to do on Allure. Embarkation was so easy and now that we are Gold C&A that helps as well. ... Read more

This was our first time on an Oasis class ship. The largest ship we had sailed previously was a Voyager class ship. We hadn't sailed on Royal Caribbean for over 5 years. In the interim, we had sailed a couple of long Holland America ... Read more

A family group of 11. Myself, wife and 1 daughter (all former cruisers). 1 sister, 1 daughter, 1 son-in-law and 5 grandkids (all first-timers). Worst part is getting a large group like that to the ship (and back) easily. Flight costs were ... Read more

The trip started the day before embarkation. We stayed at the Lago Mar in Ft Lauderdale. The hotel was pricey but what a fun place to stay. We were right on the beach and actually got up at 4:30 in the morning to walk down to the mouth of ... 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

Enjoyed the cruise on the largest ship in the fleet. I did find the ship too large as we were still finding new things on the last day. The promenade area is open to three of the main bars. When activities were being done in the bars or ... 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
