Allure of the Seas Western Itinerary
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Our balcony room on the 14th deck worked well for us. It's proximity to the pool deck and Windjammer was nice. One room towards the bow (14692) had a bulkhead view obstruction towards the bow. We certainly preferred our room.
We went to the main dining room three nights (both formal nights plus Friday) and went to four specialty restaurants. Giovanni's food was good but the room was quite noisy and we were seated too close to another couple to hold a decent conversation. We certainly heard theirs. We wish we asked for a table out doors there. Samba's was as advertised....meat, meat, meat. We both agreed there was some that was good and More some not so good. We would not go again. Izumu was highly favored by my wife. Neither of us had previous experience with sushi. We both loved Chops steaks and Mud Pie desert. If we could redo it, we'd go twice to Chops and not to Samba's.
I highly recommend this ship and if you can pay the price go to the specialty restaurants as they are better than the main dining room. Less
Cabin review: D414694 Superior Outside View Stateroom with Balcony
14694 Generally bigger than we're used to so we were happy. The bathroom also was bigger than previous ships we've been on. The balcony was adequately sized. We saw the room next to us (14692) had a metal plate bulkhead blocking their view towards the bow. We were glad to be where we were. Also this room had no noise from above or below. It was convenient to the pool deck one floor up and the windjammer which was two floors up. A lot less need for the elevators and easy access to soda refills (yes I used the soda plan).Read All Superior Outside View Stateroom with Balcony (D4) Reviews >>
