Allure is a good ship

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

Embarkation and debarkation were a snap, 20 mins on (Door to Ship) and 25 mins ship to outside. Service for breakfast was VERY marginal (1 + hour on 3 seperate days) had to get head waiter and Matre'd involved. Food was a solid B, and dining service was great at night. Chops, 150 Park and samba grill were great as alternative dining (At a cheap price!)

Chicago (Show) was a C, Blue Planet was an A+, Ice shows were A+, headliner show was a solid D -, and the comedians were a C (At best)The Aqua show was an A + (even w/ 2nd show being allowed to only use low springboard and not the 10 and 30 meter dives due ti high winds)The reservation system really seemed to control the crowds and the number of no shows allowed to see a 2nd show as a stand by.

Royal Promenade was awesome, very spacios (Double the size of Freedom class ships) Had 2 parades (But since they were just a mirror of each other, not that great!)

we salied with about 6,300 passengers, but you would More never have known it, as lines were minimal. Getting on and off in ports was a breeze and never a wit. It was nice being "DOCKED" at Labadee (RCCL's private island) so "NO TENDERS" to the island.

CD and his staff were very good (An A) kept everyone involved and had alot of options/events everyday.

Daimond Plus / Pinacle members special events were top notch as well. Meet and greets with senior staff, special diving show and more.

Based on the show quality and some service problems I can only give Allure of the Seas an B +. Compared to 2 sailings on Oasis of the Seas which rated a well deserved A + with zero service issues, and ALL shows were A +_ (In fact we saw every show twice on Oasis) And CD and staff on Oasis was slightly better also.

To summarize: A great ship, Might have a service issue or 2 (But they will address them as soon as told. Don't miss this ship! Less

Cabin review: Allure of the Seas Boardwalk view Stateroom with Balcony Deck 8 14711

Had cabins 14711 and 14713 (Adjoining) Small closet space, small storage space. Great view of the Aqua Theater and the shows in the aqua theater. if you have adjoining cabins the balcony screen can be opened so you can go cabin to cabin from the balcony. You also have a great view of people Zip-Lining past. Bathroom was adequate (They all are small!) we would def. use these cabins again! Cabin noise (Cabin to cabin) was very minimal and we did not hear a lot of noise from the hallways

Port and Shore Excursions


Brand new port (Built by and exclusively for Royal caribbean and its sister companies) Only 2 ships in Port (Still adding stores) Shopping was OK, Must take a helicopter tour of the island! Awesome view, great value (Less $$ for 2 people than we paid for 1 in Alaska!) Got a great view of the port, dunns river falls and the rest of the island.
