Ship Facts: Allure of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Allure of the Seas Deck Plans
Big, Too Big
It is a marvel to see however, if you want to feel the waves of the ocean this boat is not for you. No need for patches, wristbands or seasickness pills!

If you like to lay by the pool expect to be crammed into 1 of 4 small pools with the lounge chairs roped together so the chairs cannot be moved. The two back pools are for kids, the 2 front pools are for adults and kids.. The jacuzzis are large and nice. The pool in the Solarium is for adults only but is very small.

Embarkation and Debarkation were smooth and quick. They offered a 6:45 am luggage in hand early walk-off program. The windjammer buffet upstairs deck 16 is a disaster 700 seats for 5500 passengers, crammed and no room for the crew to even move.

The buffet doesn't have fruit at lunch. There are other free dining venues but you have to hunt for fruit. The boardwalk was great for bratwurst and other sausages and the carousel was amusing. You need reservations for all the shows you may want to do this as soon as you get on board. The Aqua theater show was great however it was cancelled (as other shows were cancelled) and then rebooked while you are in port.

The food in the dining room was good. They don't have a served breakfast in the dining room. If you have mytime dining you must pay pre paid gratuities for this service. The food at Chops Grill and Giovanni's is worth the cover charge.Labadee and Falmouth, Jamaica are cruise created ports. In Falmouth you have to take a taxi (if you are not on an excursion) The nearest city Montego Bay is about 1 hour away.The service on the ship is excellent.
