Ship Facts: Allure of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Allure of the Seas Deck Plans
Allure is a good ship
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 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!
