Western Caribbean Allure of the Seas 04/2014
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Cabin review: 8545
My interior cabin was roughly the same size as the Freedom and the room was ample and well furnished, however, the layout of the beds was terribly awkward. You opened the door, took a few steps and ran right into the bed. Maneuvering around the bed to get to the sofa area was challenging and could not be done easily if you had spent any time at all at any of the fine bars on board.
Port and Shore Excursions
Dolphin Swim & Encounter
In Cozumel, we did the $105 excursion, Push, Pull, Swim with the Dolphins at Chankanaab (spelling) and it was also well worth it. Be warned though, photos are $38 for one or 3/$55. You can buy a CD for well over $100 but that was out of my budget. Lunch at Chankanaab was both palatable and reasonable at $10-$15 USD. Shopping in Cozumel was terrible as the locals were rude, pushy and misleading about their wares.
Falmouth was wonderful and I took the $42 RCCL excursion to Montego Bay and I definitely recommend that. It was VERY well worth the $42 but be prepared to shell out $6/ per chair plus $6 for an umbrella if you want to enjoy the beach and have a place to keep your belongings (lockers were NOT an option).
This cruise exceeded our expec...
