Two of us sailed for a week in the Eastern Caribs on May 6 on Allure of the Seas, our biggest Royal Caribbean ship yet! It' s a wonderful cruise ...and we are hard to please! We worried needlessly that 6,000 guests would be unmanageable! The ship design and procedures for going ashore divided guests so nicely we were hardly aware of the headcount. A nice design too is the elevator button that says "Gangway" ...so you don't care what deck its on. They open lots of gangways when you need them. Great idea! The diving aqua show was amazing, as was seeing Broadway's "Chicago" professionally staged at sea! We enjoyed watching the flow rider 'amateur surfers learning to surf' shows daily on the sport deck... Also an amazing delight was sitting in Central Park nite and day amid trees and exotic plants, and sometimes hearing the small musical concerts at night in Central Park, a lovely respite at sea! We like the Promenade (as we do on all the big RCCL ships) and this one is no exception...great to go to the Promenade Cafe and get light sandwiches and coffee/tea snacks, avoiding the crowds at Windjammer buffet esp at lunch. They could do more with their dancing water fountain shows at the aqua arena...no need for more performers, just some music and some colorful lights at night would be super (like in Vegas)!!

Port and Shore Excursions

Port
Cozumel always appeals. Lots to see and do. Enjoyed the quick trip to the island's small Mayan ruins. Love walking right off the ship onto the dock and shops a short pace away. Well designed port.

Its a nice, safe well laid out port. Falmouth Jamaica could use a normal shop or two where you could buy shoes, tennies, normal clothes like a Gap or a Foot Locker for all that stuff we forget to pack or want to upgrade while on vacation.
