We chose this ship because we had loved it in 2012, but this time, we were not impressed. The mattresses in our cabin were caving in and very uncomfortable, there were stains on the carpet, holes in the curtains. It seemed like the ... Read more

I cruise for the ship not the ports. This time I was lucky and went to St. Kitts, a port I have never visited before. As for the Allure, it didn't disappoint. Been on the Oasis 3 times before so I knew we would like the Allure also. I do ... Read more

We have sailed on the Oasis several times so we decided it was time to try the Allure. Royal Caribbean has the embarkation process down to a science. It went very smoothly. Because we were in a junior suite, we were able to board ... Read more

I have been sailing, on multiple cruise lines, for the past 30 years. In August 2011, my family and I sailed on the Oasis of the Seas and had an absolutely amazing time. The ship was new, large, had great amenities, and was a positive ... Read more

We previously sailed on Explorer and Freedom class ships. Because of the hype about the Oasis class, we decided to book in February. The ship is very big, however, fairly easy to get around and with the number of people, there was really ... Read more

There is so many things but I'll list some of them. First hire better chefs so the food can taste better and have more varieties. You need to add more activities dancing and such. Let the manager of the beauty place that is not nice to do ... Read more

We have been on numerous RCCL vessels and have maintained our trips to the mid-size ships. We had always heard rumors that the larger ships were too impersonal. Our vacation on Oasis found this to be entirely false. The crew was very ... Read more

We choose Royal Caribbean because of their knowledge video on gluten free, and we choose this ship because it was smaller and we thought it would be more intimate and accommodating. We then choose an owners suite, to have the extra special ... Read more

We choose this cruise for the ship and not the ports. We had already been to all of the stops before. The ship is huge, just as we expected. That was a good thing and a bad thing. The size was great because there were lot's of things to do ... Read more
