Ship Facts: Allure of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Allure of the Seas Deck Plans
Too big not to fail

We don't recommend this ship for anyone over 60 not traveling with family. You pay top dollar to sle on this ship and frankly it's not worth it.

Here is the good-

- Great entertainment and shows. Some if the best at sea!

- lots of choices for dinning, but often not worth the extra money.

- Nice looking ship with very intelligently designed cabins.

The not so good and sometimes bad-

- Fitness center run by Steiner and much if the equipment requires maintenance. Very frustrating trying to watch TV on elliptical/treadmills.

- Casino almost always $ 10.- minimum bet and offers lousy playing odds.

- the Buffet is terrible and alway over crowded and noisy. Main dinning room service mediocre at best until lasf two nights. Food very mediocre with poor quality meats and fish. Best was the brazil steak house for lunch.

- Pool area is unbelieveable crowded and chaise lounges very cheap and not padded. Pool looked like a Coney Island resort.

-Elevators were packed and often went the wrong direction just to get on them.

- Daytime activities very poor and movies were strictly children's affairs. No movie theatre.

-Disenbarking process was very slow and behind schedule.

Saving grace was the Diamond lounge which we understand in Septmber 2013 they will lower the amenities for Diiamond/Platinum members. We felt that the public areas were much too small for the number if passengers and we waited in line for everything. More like going to Disneyland then going on a cruise ship. Much to big for our experienced selves.

We would go agin if we went with our kids and grand kids only.
