OK so we gave cruised twice before in the med so we had an idea what to expect before we boarded the Allure of the seas. But when driving up to the port and you get your first view of the ship you still say WOW that is one heck of an impressive sight.
Boarding through the terminal is slick and the friendly staff guide you to the check in and then onto the ship. You enter straight into the ships luxurious Royal Promenade and the WOW continues. This ship may be currently the worlds largest cruise ship, but once the cabins become available up and the initial influx of gests dissipate throughout the ship, you would never guess there are over 5,000 gests on board. The staff all have a genuine smile on their faces and provided us with a very high level of service throughout the 7 day cruise.
The food and the many shows throughout the week were top class. We hope to sail on this ship again as soon as we can save up enough money to book for the Western Caribbean cruise.
