It was our first cruise ship trip, and we had a great time. I heard about the Allure of the Seas through someone else before and they were all positive comments. Most of the staff were very friendly and they want to make sure you have a ... Read more

The choice of this cruise was made by a quilting shop - we made quilts and had classes on sea days. That said, this was my first cruise (I'm 75 years old); my friend has been on quite a few cruises, but never one on a ship this big. ... Read more

To start, this is only my second cruise. The first was on the QE2 in an upper tier cabin 25 years ago. So keep in mind I'm coming from that kind of experience. The Independence of the Seas was hilariously enormous to me with never ... Read more

This was my first cruise and I was very apprehensive of sea sickness. It was great; every experience convinced me to do it again. From embarkation to debarking I was pleased; no sea sickness. The Freedom of the Seas was a great choice: ... Read more
