Wonderful the second time around: Allure of the Seas Cruise Review by Cruise a holic
Overall Member Rating
Wonderful the second time around
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
We enjoyed the speciality extra charge restaurants. The main dining room was crowded and the food just okay. They have a good cafe More in Central park that was free and did make nice salad's and panini's. You can also get free hot dogs and donuts free on the board walk. The buffet was fair- Celebrity Solstice class ships buffets are much better with more food choice including fresh omeletes made to order.
Our cabin was a Central Park Balcony view. This is our third CP cabin (1 Oasis 2 Allure) and in the future will consider a balcony view. It is a little weird not seeing the water and not knowing if you are docked or not. While the first two times we loved the CPV as we took our grandchildren on their first cruise and were concerned that the water view might disturb them- we prefer it! The boardwalk is too noisey IMO as it is noisey from morning to night with a merry go round ringing a bell and playing music from 10AM to 10PM most days. They also have many other activities adding to the noise during the day and at night.
Many shops on the ship- a Coach Store, Britto store, and wonderful Jewelry store and the usual other assortment of stores. We didn't use the Casino, but unlike Carnival , you do not have to walk through the casino to get to other areas of the ship. We also do not enjoy the "art" auctions.
We are booked on the new Quantum of the Seas and are looking forward to another Royal Caribbean ship!
We a truly fans of Royal Caribbean! Less
Enjoyed the cabin. The bathroom sink is very low- so if you are tall, not very comfortable. Small compact but okay for a week's cruise.
