Wanted to check out this ship - design is not too nice as most of the shopping and dining do not have windows to the outside. You would never know that you are on a ship unless you are on the top decks. Ship was pretty clean and well ... Read more

My two friends and I went along on the cruise with a class reunion group. Dinner in the main dining room was elegant with excellent food and service. I'm not sure of the spelling, but our waiter Thiomas? Thiomer? was fabulous. In addition ... Read more

Embarkation and disembarkation is always a breeze on the Allure. The staff are very quick during this process and wait times are minimal. We prefer the Allure out of the Oasis class ships because of the staff . . . the ENTIRE staff, ... Read more

We wanted to try a very large cruise ship. There was far too much walking on a ship of this size. Because of the layout of the ship, there are only elevator banks near the bow and stern of the ship. Smaller ships have elevators in the ... Read more

Largest ship I have ever sailed on and getting on and off was the fastest and smoothest of all others. The ship is layed out in such a way that it was never felt crowded. There are lots of elevators and generally although often full it was ... Read more

The Allure is one of my favourite ships. Although it is a large ship, the embarkation and disembarkation are faster than other ships. I love the Central Park area and the adults only solarium area. There are lots of healthy food options ... Read more

We were very happy with our time on the Allure of the Seas. The service was excellent. Loved the food in the main dining room. Samba Grill, the Brazilian restaurant, wasn't my favorite but the staff was great. My 11 and 13 year old had ... Read more

AAA recommended it. We were blown away by the shear size of the boat as our hotel shuttle approached it. The "neighborhoods"- Boardwalk, Central Park, Promenade, Casino, Sports- were amazing. The carousel alone blew us away as ... Read more

This was our 3rd trip with Royal Caribbean. We sailed on Independence of the Sea, Oasis of the Seas, and Harmony of the Seas. We had a great time on each cruise. The embarkation and disembarkation was the smoothest on Harmony of the ... Read more

We are long time R/C cruisers, and were dying to cruise on this amazing ship. We booked the cruise seven months in advance to find that all junior suites were taken. We settled for an oceanview stateroom with balcony. The cabin was ... Read more

The itinerary was wonderful. San Juan, St. Kitts & Sint Maarten. I think I could live without Laberdee, however. Freedom is a great ship. Big enough but not crowded.It is in good shape overall. Getting on & off was painless. The ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the St Kitts venue and we love this class of ship. The ship is dated and a bit tired, with worn carpet, missing caulk in bathroom, and we actually had a missing shelf in our bathroom. Our room steward was ... Read more

Food in the Windjammer and in the dining room was subpar. We've been on 25+ Royal Caribbean cruises and this has been the worst so far. Specialty restaurants are the way to go. Above and beyond service and food. alcoholic Drinks on the ... Read more

This is the first time we were on this class of ships. It was a nice ship but I do not like the Centrum. I would much prefer a promenade. Where our cabin was located we used the elevators at the Centrum and whenever they had something ... Read more

This was our first time cruising on a mega ship from a US port, as we usually cruise Radiance or Voyager class from Sydney, Australia. We were therefore very excited to try this ship. Check in was relatively fast, helped by the fact we ... Read more
