Ship Facts: Allure of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Allure of the Seas Deck Plans
Loved Allure! Didn't think I would....
We were a group of 4, stayed with the Florida brother so drove to port and parked at the park and go for an Internet special of $55 for the week. Embarkation was the smoothest we have ever experienced - on the ship in 1/2 hour! Ship was just terrific. We ate lunch at the Park Cafe initially and were in our room at 1 pm sharp! JS was very large with a huge balcony with 2 lounge chairs, and a table and chairs.

Late dinner in MDR was really the only negative. There was a very large group from NYC that had almost 1/2 the dining area - had their own chef and multiple food requests out of the ordinary. There were many very ill behaved, demanding children - literally standing on tables, shouting, banging metal tops together. They were exceptionally disrespectful to the servers and other diners! The only night they did not show up was the last night when you bring your gratuities. The staff was very unhappy. We went to guest services to no avail! We choose the late dinner to get away from children! I will try to search for this group and AVOID THEM at all cost in the future. Our servers were wonderful at our table.

Many Brazilians on this ship and a great variety of people from all over - great experience! Americans seemed the most ill behaved in most areas.

Neighborhoods: nice separation with kids in Boardwalk, Central Park more quiet, Promenade usually crowded but good people watching.

Pools: like the variety! Never trouble finding a chair either in sun or shade.

Multiple restaurants! Avoid the Windjammer if you can - way crowded!! Too much to write about - should go, we were NOT disappointed. In fact pleasantly surprised!
