Great trip on the Allure
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
I can't say enough good things about the service and the cleanliness of the ship. Everywhere we went some crew member was either cleaning or asking about our day. Our cabin steward was awesome. He was the friendliest steward we have ever had.
Being in our 60's we really didn't want to sail with alot of kids, and October was the right time to go. I don't know how More many kids, but it was probably less than 300. We hardly ever interacted with them so I can't say for sure how many were on board. I will say that if you travel with kids, this ship is for them. There were alot of activities on the Boardwalk that was just for kids.
On sea days we hung out in the Solarium which was very relaxing. Plenty of deck chairs.
Except for Rita's Cantina, we ate every night in the MDR and the food was very good. My husband loves escargot and he got it every night. It was never available on the Mariner. We ate at Chops Grille on the Mariner and it was delicious but the two hour meal was more than my DH could endure. Rita's food was not the greatest but the entertainment and the drinks were good.
The entertainment on this ship was outstanding. Ocean Aria was just okay, but Chicago and Blue Planet were great. We also really enjoyed the comedy show very much and of course Quest was fun. Allan Brooks was our CD and he did a great job.
We probably won't sail the Allure any time in the near future as there are so many other ports we want to see, but if we are ever sailing the Caribbean again, you can bet we'll be on the Allure. Less
Cabin review: D17198 Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Large Balcony
Our cabin was the norm. The closet was too small, but the balcony was bigger than usual. We were on the hump. It was a very quiet cabin.Read All Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Large Balcony (D1) Reviews >>
