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

Enchantment of the Seas was not what I expected. My first two cruises were on larger ships with many amenities. I was worried I would not adjust to the ship's age and size. However, I did read the ship was refurbished not too long ago. ... Read more

We booked this cruise while on another cruise back in 2015, so we had plenty of time to read reviews, and to plan accordingly. We are fairly frequent cruisers (Diamond Plus with Crown & Anchor Society) so we had a pretty good idea ... Read more
