Ship Facts: Allure of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Allure of the Seas Deck Plans
Another Great RCCL Experience

Well, as if I didn't know in advance, our recent trip to the East Caribbean on the Allure of the Seas was nothing short of great!

First night out the on-board theater presented the Broadway musical production of 'Chicago' and although the cast had little or no actual 'Broadway' experience, the show was fab! Later in the cruise we found out it was the cast's first performance which, as we reflected back made the show that much better! Sexy, sultry and tasteful. Great job.

All the shows on-board were fantastic. The Aqua Theater show (the final performance for that cast) left us wanting more. The high-diving and stunts were first-rate.

Allure presents a show called "Blue Planet" which is not terribly hyped but a must see. They have a scene using a barren tree (origami-ish) that as the scene develops one begins to realize that many of the branches and roots are actually performers in costumes designed to conceal them at the beginning. Got a standing ovation.

As always the food was well beyond good. Dining room was outstanding. On lobster night, our waiter (Bien) came to our table with a second lobster dinner. I asked, '...where did this come from?', to which he replied, 'I went fishing!' Great sense of humor from both Bien and his assistant waiter (wish I could remember his name).

Once again, the Park Cafe served up the Kummelweck sandwich, a beef delight that is particularly tasty and was quite tender every time. It's a don't miss for passengers on both Allure and Oasis voyages.

From the cabin attendants to the wait staff to the pursers desk to the captain, known simply as 'Capt. Johnny', the entire crew was wonderful. Speaking of the Captain, we sailed with him twice in 2006 when he was skipper of the Mariner of the Seas. One question he gets a lot is, 'who's steering the ship when you are on the passenger decks with us?' His favorite quip is to pull a prop out of his pocket and announce, 'fortunately, I have a remote!'

All-in-all every one of the 5 RCCL cruises we have been on has been outstanding. We have sailed on Carnival, Princess and MSC and Royal always does it best.

Hope you enjoy your trip.
