Honeymooners on Allure

Sail Date: November 2012
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami

Our Allure experience from start to finish was truly amazing. We got married on her in the Chapel on the first day of sailing. 11/11/12. 1330. From Port check in to our wedding everything went perfect. The staff that assisted us at the Port of Miami and then on board were fabulous. (Isis. Sandra. Leo. Anca.) On arrival on board 11.30 we put a notice on the ship message board to invite fellow cruisers to attend our wedding as we were getting married without family or friends. If any of those people are reading this review a big thank you for coming to our wedding..and making it special....We had about 20 people attend.

The Cruise Director and his staff were amazing. Such a dedicated and talented group of people. The shows on board were exceptional. Especially the Blue Planet Show. From ice skating to diving to dance and song all shows were truly brilliant. All done on the high seas weather permitting as accidents could easily occur if weather was not favourable at the time of More the shows. We were lucky enough to see some shows twice as we rebooked for a second week. We loved the ship so much that we ended up booking back to back cruises, thus we did Eastern and Western Carribean destinations.

Our wedding dinner was at 150 Central and it was such a memorable night. Truly amazing food and great service. Food combinations were so interesting and proportionally sized as the courses just kept coming. A degustation menu which is the way to dine in this restaurant. All food on board Allure was of a high standard especially in the specialty restaurants. We are now home and have the post cruise blues and miss everything about Allure. Thanks Royal Carribean for making our wedding and honeymoon so special over the 14 days we cruised on her...Gayle and Christian Jordan. (Australia) Less

Cabin review: Allure of the Seas Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony Deck 9 7308

Both cabins fabulous. Balcony cabin aft portside was wonderful. Deck 7. No noise at all. Second cruise inside cabin forward starboard Deck 9 was very quiet also. Easy access to lifts. No problems with either end of ship or either side of ship. If anyone is on a budget definately book inside cabin. A big saving allowing you to spend more money elsewhere on holiday.

Port and Shore Excursions

Great place to hire a car and drive around and discover the fabulous bars and restaurants.

Nice beaches and facilities but sadly due to life circumstances the locals are too pushy and irritating. You cant walk around in peace and enjoy the markets and entertainment.

Horseback Riding

(2)
Only tour we did with ship and was disappointed with the tour. There was too much waiting on arrival at the horse riding venue. Too many ships in port. Staff were excellent and kept us entertained with games/jokes etc but we had only 30 minutes total on horses. Allure passengers were last to get horses so spent lots of time just sitting around. When we did get to ride the horses and swim them it was lots of fun. We feel we missed out on other exciting options as a result of doing this tour. Allure kindly refunded our money on arrival back to ship since we were so disappointed.
