Sail Date: May 2011
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

My husband and I decided to cruise Allure to truly see the difference between large and small. Our final decision.....SMALL.

PROS

boarding - No time at all

Ship was beautiful,

entertainment was OUTSTANDING (5 star),

very friendly crew.

food good.

Lots to do for kids

Walk off (we were off by 6:00 a.m.)

CONS

Not much to do while at sea

Solarium pool (COOOOOLD)wish I had a picture of every face that stepped into the pool...Funny home video style.

Shops are too expensive

My time dining (great seating, but too impersonal) Not profesional photos taken. Waiters do not have much time. Prepaid tips (Head Waiter came to our table twice and seemed to have other things on his mind) And his tip was pre-paid.

Not enough ports

cabins are smaller

Boardwalk Balcony cabin noisy at night until around 1:00 a.m. Less

Cabin review: Allure of the Seas Boardwalk view Stateroom with Balcony Deck 8 11297

Tiny Closet, no room when coffee table is placed in front of couch. Smaller ships have roomier closets. Bed...Comfy Boardwalk balcony....NOISY AT NIGHT until around 1:00 a.m.

Port and Shore Excursions


Blue Lagoon Experience, wonderful beach, but not easy to get on the floating slides etc... (really need some type of ladder to get onto)
