Just returned from two weeks on Allure OTS. One week encompassed the President's cruise, an experience which made the two weeks vastly different with positive and negatives to each. Allure is a beautiful ship with so much to do, truly a ... Read more

Wanted a quick getaway and it was very relaxing. It's a small ship, you'll get to see the same new friends over and over again. Being small, dinner service was tight. Our chairs backed up to a service station and we were bumped by ... Read more

We are prior RC's Oasis and Freedom class cruisers, as well as Holland, Disney & Princess travelers. In summary, bigger is not always better. This sip is almost too big for its own good. Quality & consistency in service is lacking. ... Read more

This cruise was a booking as part of a larger group booking with families of 25 teenage girls that had a chance to dance on the ship through their local dance company. This is why it was chosen, with the idea in mind that Bermuda is a ... Read more
