Ship Facts: Allure of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Allure of the Seas Deck Plans
Outdone themselves!
Loved the Allure, absolutely beautiful ship, almost too many things to do. I would definitely consider a two week cruise on this ship. A few things have changed. Food wasn't as good as on others ships (in my opinion). I almost felt as though it was intentional to get you to to try the specialty dining (which I did and Chops was AMAZING!) Coffee was horrible, but of course if you want to buy coffee.....No more entertainment in the dining room. The waiters use to sing on Italian night and dance on Caribbean night, but no more :(

They cater to smokers! Many more venues allow smoking. They try to say one side is non-smoking but c'mon, it's smoke! My friend couldn't enjoy her balcony because she was flanked by chain smokers. Boleros seemed like a nice lounge, but I couldn't stand the smoke for more than 5 minutes or smelling like smoke when I left. Same with the Solarium, one side is smoking. Get the gist? If it's going to stay this way, RCCL needs to upgrade it ventilation system, because it stunk, pun intended. If all of that isn't enough...they did away with the clothes line in the shower!!! What's up with that? :) They did add a leg shaving bar! Those are the few cons, the pros way out weigh them.

Kids club or Adventure Ocean was amazing. My 4 1/2 year old son loved it. Central Park was awesome, Service was awesome, the boardwalk was awesome, the location of the venues made more sense and therefore the layout flowed a lot easier. Easier to memorize the ship and venues even considering the size. Never felt crowded. The running track runs the length of the ship and is on it's own deck so you don't have to fight the casual strollers, brilliant! You don't have to wear life jackets to the drill! Solarium is beautiful. They even used it as a back up disco one night when the teens were in the club. Photo system is a lot smoother. Embarkation and Debarkation a piece of cake. You can make free video messages in the "on air" lounge and email them to friends and family, telling them what a blast you're having.

All in All, a wonderful vacation. Looking forward to the next one!
