Great trip for Spring Break- Allure

Sail Date: March 2011
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

My Wife and 2 Daughters (12 and 15) took a cruise on the Allure for Spring Break. Last year we cruised on FOS during Spring Break. This is by far the best family cruise vacation that we have ever taken. The Allure was amazing!

We stayed in adjoining cabins a GS (8260) and Outside Cabin (8262). Deck 8 was the place to be in our opinion. Wife and I spent time everyday in Central Park a 30 sec. walk from our cabin. We also found that walking through Central Park was a quick and easy way to get from the forward to aft elevators.

It was Spring Break and we found that the ship did not seem crowded which was amazing. Twice in a week we found lines and just adjusted out plans. The teens did not spend much time in the programs. They found more than enough to do with each other.

The food was in line with other RCCL dining rooms and Windjammer. We had Sushi at Izuma and that we great. We had another great experience at Chops Grill.

THe best day of the trip was our More stop at Labadee. We have been to other "private cruise" destinations but this was hands down the best. We did Dragon's Breath zip line it was awesome. We spent the rest of the day at Barefoot Beach in a cabana reserved for Suite Guests. Please see my youtube videos of each:

Our to and from the Ship was a breeze. We came in the night before and stayed at the Marroitt near FLL. On Sunday morning we left the ship at 8:45 and were at our gate at FLL by 10:00 for a noon flight. Smoothest travel on and off ever.

We cannot wait to go back and cruise on the allure again! Less
