Ship Facts: Allure of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Allure of the Seas Deck Plans
Love at first Allure!

The Allure of the Seas was my first ever cruise and it was love from the first moment of embarkation. Arrival, was smooth, effortless, our baggage was waiting at our stateroom as promised at 1:00. Amazing transition from one group of 6,000 passengers to the next. Everything was clean and ready to sail away with umbrella drink in hand and Calypso music playing us out of port for a fantastic cruise. RCI can't control the weather but it was perfect too. Food was fantastic in the main dining room. (Roger Luis & Manolo were great.) Giovanni's was spectacular for specialty dinner before the Prohibition Event for the select few (Shhhhh!) in Jazz 4 Club. Speak Easy password, Flapper attire, jazz, refreshments served in coffee cups, Charleston lesson and all. What fun!

Our port excursions were wonderful, especially the snorkeling at St. John's Trunk Bay from St. Thomas.

Only downside on St. Maarten, wish we had been told ahead of time that May 1 is a holiday there, and all the shops were closed.

Loved strolling Central Park with nightcap from Rising Tide Bar, shopping along the Promenade, listening to piano bar, observing young folks at the pool from the Schooner Bar or during the day playing mini golf, etc.

There was so much to see and do, couldn't possibly do it all on one cruise. No lines for anything though.

Only criticism is the ridiculous cost of photos. In digital age there is no need to print and reject so many fabulous pictures that are taken. RCI should sell the CD for one reasonable price. More people would purchase. 20 prints & a CD for $450 is too much. Also, don't need 20 8x10 photos no matter how good they are. We did however, like the way you could find all photos you are in (facial recognition) in one designated portfolio.

All in all, FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE! Was my first, but it will not be my last cruise, and can't imagine any better ship than RCI Allure.
