Family Cruise 2017 Selected as other family members wanted to do Royal and it was for 3 family member's birthdays. To put it mildly my wife and I were very disappointed by Royal in so many ways. We have been on Disney, NCL, ... Read more

The Harmony is a new ship. The staterooms are tasteful decorated, with two separate closets and plenty of storage space. I was disappointed with embarkation. Initially There was no one curbside to take our luggage. We arrived at our ... 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

We loved the Allure the first time we went on it two years ago and decided to go again on the Eastern Caribbean itinerary. (The first time we did the Western Caribbean itinerary.) We felt a little rushed on this itinerary initially. We ... Read more

The entertainment was 1st class - and I'm really picky since I've seen Mamma Mia twice on Broadway. Food was great. Really enjoyed 2 specialty restaurants as well. Never seemed that crowded even though a huge ship. Our room was a Central ... Read more

This was our 4th time on the Freedom. We were happy to see that the ship itself has been well kept up. When we got to our balcony cabin, we were extra pleased to see that the old deck furniture had been replaced with some very nice new ... Read more

I chose this one for family reasons. I had been on the Allure once before (2014). I feel like there were more activities and less "sales" events the first time. I recall that on the first cruise I had trouble deciding which ... Read more

Central Park on the Allure (and Oasis) is a nice place to relax and 'chill' while listening to the bird calls and taking in the beautiful 'grounds' of live plants and trees. The Rising Tides Bar didn't always keep its posted schedule. I ... Read more

Allure is a exceptional ship. Crew worked very hard in all areas and had very favorable things to say about the ship and the cruise lines. Ship excursions operators have difficulty handling the large volume of passengers in st. ... Read more

Embarkation was a breeze. Rom was ready at 1:00. We had a D2 Balcony. The cabin was nothing special. The layout of the closets was not ideal. Storage is very limited. We were on the Anthem and there was twice the amount of storage space ... Read more

We chose this ship for a birthday celebration. This was our first RC cruise and probably our last. We are platinum on Carnival and enjoy the fun atmosphere on Carnival much better. There is always fun in the disco and dance music ... Read more
