Never again: Allure of the Seas Cruise Review by Eveie
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
If you like to eat good food on vacation, you must buy it. Nothing is included, other than mediocre cafe food in a very limited number More of places. Even the grand dining room offered very small bland fare with better options for purchase only. If you want to eat late, buy it, no midnight buffets here. But from the minute you walk on to the ship, they are lined up trying to sell you spa packages, photos and 'specialty' dining packages. Want good coffee? Buy it, with a 18% gratuity added, at Starbucks.
Not only was I dismayed with the constant hard-selling techniques used, but after falling and injuring my ankle in the fitness area, once again, the first response by the fitness manager was, didn't you see the sign? Well, I admit I saw no sign as I tripped over a gap in front of a treadmill. No offer to help as you would expect out of common curtesy.
I will not travel with RCL again since no amount of money could make that experience worth it. Less

Friendly cooks and lots of drinks, if you like that. Mexico is Mexico, hot and stinky, what else can I say?
Favorite excursion of the entire vacation. Wonderful tour guides, very friendly and entertaining. Beautiful country side and views from plantation. Great food and hostesses at plantation and nice gift shop with better prices than in town. Highly recommend this tour.
This cruise exceeded our expec...
