We were very excited to experience the Allure of the Seas. The Allure of the Seas was an exceptional ship. The ship was very clean and the food was exceptional. Our stateroom was wonderful and so was our Stateroom Service. First ... Read more

We decided to try a bigger ship this time, but was not very impressed. Restaurant selections were poor, unless you wanted to pay extra. Having to wait in line for the buffet was disappointing. You would also think this ship would have a ... Read more

This was only our 2nd cruise. The first was on NCL and believe me, this won hands down! The embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly. The cabin was roomy enough for 2 and we were totally grateful for the wonderful "hand held" ... Read more

My husband and I were celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary and had planned this cruise for a whole year! From the very beginning everything flowed very easy. We did not explore Ft Lauderdale because we just weren't interested (we are ... Read more

We chose the Allure because it was our first cruise and I wanted the biggest boat I could get for the destination because I tend to get sea-sick easily. The boat is awesome! My husband got a massage - the hot stone massage. Don't know if ... Read more

We chose this cruise due to the timing (Spring Break). In Tennessee we have an early spring break which somewhat unfortunately coincides with collage spring break. That was our only hesitation at booking this cruise. Yet, we were very ... Read more

There is so much to do on this ship you can't do it all. The shows were wonderful, particularly Mamma Mia and Blue Planet - a must-see! The service in the dining room was excellent - they took good care of my daughter with severe food ... Read more

Met up for a week long cruise with our long time friends. Wined, dined and exercised our way through the western Caribbean. There were 6300 people on board but we never felt overwhelmed by crowds. The balcony cabin was spacious enough and ... Read more

We just returned from the Western Caribbean itinerary with 2 adults and 2 teenage girls. Even though there were over 7000 passengers on board the week we went, embarkation, disembarkation and the public areas on the ship didn't reflect ... Read more

It was our 25th anniversary so splurged on an L1 Crown Loft Suite on the Harmony. Wow. Sadly, I just read a quote that a luxury once experienced becomes a necessity. Sadly I fear that's true. The suite is truly a lovely small ... Read more

This was our first cruise with RCCL. Our only other cruise was on the Disney Dream. It's very hard to compare RCCL to Disney, especially when you're cruising with an 8 year old. We were also cruising with anoth couple and their 8 year ... Read more

We were quite pleased with our cruise experience. The cabin (oceanview 2556) was more impressive and roomy than we had anticipated. The cabin appointments were good, the cabin was clean, and generally was above our expectation. The bed ... Read more

Chose this cruise for the ship and destinations. There were a great many things that we loved, and some that we didn't. I am Platinum cruiser, and this definitely up to standards. First and foremost, there are many other reviews from ... Read more

We are RCL Crown and Anchor members but have never sailed on Serenade or to any of these ports. We knew going in the ship was older and is scheduled for a refurb this year. You could definitely tell that. A lot of the particle board ... Read more

We booked somewhat last minute in February because we liked the sound of the itinerary. Getting on the ship took a bit of time (long lines) but went smoothly. We ate at Windjammer the first day for lunch and it had a decent selection, ... Read more

I took this 2-port, 5-Night cruise to visit Haiti and Jamaica. This was my 27th cruise and I usually cruise Solo. Unfortunately, we had a "medical emergency" which caused us to turn back and go to the Miami Port. Judging by how ... Read more

I hated the boarding procedures for this cruise. This is not my first cruise with Royal Caribbean. Normally there is entrance for suite guests and regular guests. Then they separate guests by Gold, Platinum, Emerald and Diamond. Giving ... Read more

The Allure of The Seas is an incredible boat. Even with 10-12 foot seas, the boat barely moved. It's very spacious and we never felt like we were crowded or needed to get away from people. The variety of restaurants and bars was great! ... Read more
