Allure of the Seas Cruise Review by Emilio9695: TOO BIG TOO BAD
Overall Member Rating
TOO BIG TOO BAD
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
My wife and I have taken at least one and most years two cruises. Other then Asia we have done most others. This past week after months of planning we took The Allure with our son and daughter their spouses and a 19,16,9,5 year old grandchildren. Since we live 40 miles from the Ft. Lauderdale Seaport it is something we have done many times before. We knew that the best place to park is the Park-N-go which gives excellent service and charges under $50 to park all week. That is where the fun ended.
In the 18 months since I last sailed with RCCL I was shocked to see the vast changes. As a Diamond rated guest I could not believe the nickel and dimming that this Company has fallen to. The best example and that is all it is, was that little piece of Candy the appears on your pillow each night, was no longer. They claim that by eliminating this practice RCCL saves $3 Million each year. No toiletries in bathrooms. No Ice . smaller staterooms.Not even a pen or paper on the desk. A More Casino in which smoking was allowed to the detriment of most guests. 6202 passengers and 2000 crew was just to many to often each day.
We have always enjoyed Cruise ships but after this week we have added RCCL to Carnival as ships we will never use again.
Celebrity Cruises is the best all around in this price level. Less

Great location to swim with the Dolphins. great photos taken by the company. this location is about 15 mins. from port and you can take a $12 taxi and pay at the location and save 45% from ship prices.
Conquest Not Up to Par for Car...
Older ship, nice cruise.
