Ship Facts: Allure of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Allure of the Seas Deck Plans
Cruise worth experiencing

BACKGROUND: Previously went no Norweigan-Mexican Riviera (awful), Royal Caribbean-Alaska (good), Carnival-Panama Canal (disappointing), and Celebrity-Rome-Israel (excellent. Decided to experience largest cruise ship in the world, especially for son, age 12 1/2.

HOTEL INFO: Stayed in Ft. Lauderdale at Renaissance--good people, nice place. Used Dollar Rent a car, right near ship terminal.

SHIP INFO: LIke being in a floating city --very well designed, creative plan.

ACTIVITIES: Great varity aboard.

EMBARKATION: Amazing that with 6200 passengers, it was a matter of minutes. Super impressed with efficiency.

EXCURSIONS: Very touristy, hyper-emphasis on tips. Did our own snorkel in Cozumel and saved money. Dolphins ii Jamaica terrific.

STATEROOM: Adequate balcony room, spartan, nothing special. Had two adjoining balconies -- that was nice. But often smelled moisture and humidity in hallways.

DINING: This cruise avoided specialty restaurants to spend money instead on excursions. Sorrento's pizza highly recommend along with othr free venues--the cafe next to customer services had great sugar-free chocolate ship cookies and sandwiches; also Park Cafe. Dining room food was just adequate; but cold fruit soups good. Desserts are a farce, with mainly sugar rather than taste. What I would give for a good piece of pie or cake. Lamb chops so fatty as to be ridiculous.

ENTERTAINMENT: High marks to aqau iving show, and to second ice show . Really solid.

Disembarkation: Early ify ou take your own (wheeled) luggage. What a concept -- we were off ship shortly after it landed and through customs without line.

OTHER COMMENTS: Gym area a bit run-down -- embarrassing for FCL that their mats are in disrepair -- would not cost much for new ones. And no personnel there in gym.
