Allure of the Seas is a beautiful ship. Very clean and staff is very helpful. It is difficult to tell how big the ship is. There were a few line ups but they moved quickly. Ship staff were very organized.
Embarkment went very smoothly. Got to the port, walked in, waiting only a few minutes and were ready to board the ship. The room wasn't ready when we boarded so we walked around the ship to see what it had to offer. We also went to the Windjammer for some lunch which was very fresh and delicious. The windjammer always had great food with a large variety to choose from.
Once our room was ready, we left our carry on luggage in the room and continued to walk around the ship. Our room steward gave us the low down on our room and his service also.
Dining-we ate breakfast and lunch in the windjammer which is always good food. For dinner we always went to the main dining room. We did my time dining and set out times during our walk around the ship when we first got on the ship….good thing as we noticed some people had to wait for tables for quite some time during the week. Food in the main dining room is always excellent and our server (as always) was super friendly and always willing and eager to please.
Pool was always clean and chairs around the pool were plentiful. The only thing I missed on this ship was that the pool activities were generally done at the water theatre instead of at one of the pools. Too much of a pain to go all that way to watch. Other ships, the activities were always at the main pool so there was better participation.
There is a a lot of things to keep yourself busy on this ship
Shopping was okay, the specials during the week were pretty good.
We very much enjoyed this ship but in all honesty we didn't notice much difference between the larger class ships.
Entertainment was great….I thought the headliner act - in this case Mo5aic- was the best. They were fantastic and I wanted to see if I could go back to watch them but wasn't able to.
