The Allure had more than 6,000 guests, but it never felt crowded except at embarkation and disembarkation. Compared to other cruise lines embarkation was faster, but it would have been easier for us if there had been a large eye-level ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we had seen this ship in port on other cruises (Carnival) and it seemed so much bigger and better, plus we really liked the ports it was visiting (Bahamas, St. Thomas and St. Maarten). It was a lovely ship with ... Read more

We chose this cruise for spring break because of the interesting ports and the highly-reviewed kid-friendly activities and areas onboard. The ports (Nassau, St. Thomas, St. Maarten) were, indeed, fantastic and we enjoyed excursions we ... Read more

Stateroom was great and the ship was clean, food was not so great and some of the staff are rude. Now that tips are pre-paid they must think that they don't have to be nice. Shore excursions had a limit to how many people can go so you ... Read more

Although the Allure was in dry dock in 2015 she seemed to be pretty beat up. Chairs dirty , stained in the Champagne Bar. Stuffing coming out in the Promenade Cafe The staff at times was nonexistent around the pool deck and American ... Read more

We chose Allure of the Seas, because the ship was built in FInland. Also, the ship's facilities and services seemed suitable for small children. Unfortunately there was a huge delay in the check-in process (due to an IT problem?); we ... Read more

I booked this cruise in april 2016 with my travel agent especially because this was going to be our first tri-generational cruise (9 persons including our 3 grand-children aged 2½ to almost 4). Having sailed several times on ... Read more

The service was consistently bad everywhere. There were some really good crew members, like our room steward, but most was bad. The checkin process was horrible, stood in line for 3 hours. For some reason they computers kept crashing ... Read more

Our daughter wanted to go on a cruise and she is in her mid 40's. Our travel agent told us about this cruise and sounded perfect. Lots of stuff for them to do and lots of bars and restaurants for us! I have been on 22 cruises and 280 ... Read more

This cruise line was part of a number of options I had through RCI. We selected Royal Caribbean to experience a different cruise line from past cruises. We found the Allure of the Sea massive as expected. Our Balcony stateroom was ... Read more

We chose the Allure of the Seas because we had good experiences on other Royal Caribbean Cruises. We were very disappointed with the Allure of the seas trip. The Any Time Dining and shows reservation system was terrible. The Allure ... Read more

The ship was huge yet even though we were at 100% capacity, you knew there were other people on the ship BUT I never felt crowded. I know when I was reading reviews telling me this, I was saying how's the possible. The flow of the ship and ... Read more

I have been on 10 cruises but this was the first for my 11 & 14 year old boys. The ship was great. Lots to do. Very clean. Good variety of food to choose from. We didn't like having to carry around a giant cup for our soda package. ... Read more

Allure of the Seas is an amazing boat. Many fun things to do for all ages on the boat. The cruise began with the check-in attendant messing up our check-in and taking 30 minutes and multiple visits from the supervisor to override her ... Read more

We have earlier cruised mainly in Northern Europe, and were told that service onboard these cruises in the Caribbean would be really good as the staff to guest ratio so high. We were quite disappointed. Really long waiting to get ... Read more

Chose this cruise because of the Estonian connection and also wanted to get a feel for a much larger ship than the ones we have been on before. The embarkation was terrible because of computer malfunction and to get over 6000 people on ... Read more

Service was impeccable! The staff were very friendly and seemed to always remember your likes on board. Your everyday staff member would remember your name and call you by your name which gave me a sense of personal touch. The shows were ... Read more
