Great week: Allure of the Seas Cruise Review by bcaha
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
My favorite spot on the ship was the Park Cafe for breakfast. Very peaceful, even on a crowded ship.
Make sure to see Chicago, Blue Planet and Ocean Aria. We reserved Chicago about 2 months prior to sailing, however, once we boarded we accidentally discovered that the date of the show had been changed. This affected our dinner plans for two days. It worked out fine, but it was a good thing we found out and were still able to see the show. I mention this so that you will know to check your Personal Calendar on the tv More menu in your stateroom. That's how we realized the date and time was changed.
Dining room food wasn't great, but the my time dining worked very well. We were able to change our reservation time whenever we needed to without any issues.
I felt like the ship was extremely crowded - over 6000 passengers for the Christmas cruise. It was sometimes tough to get an elevator. However, even with the crowds we never had trouble getting a lounge chair in sun or shade. You can always find at least a couple of chairs. Less
