I was a bit wary of cruising mainly due to seasickness experienced on car ferries from UK to France. I decided to take the plunge with my experienced cruiser family. To my delight, I didn't feel nauseous at all. We had a great cabin on ... Read more

First off, I have to say being that this ship launched in 2015, I expected a few bumps along the way but never in my wildest dreams did I think I would have such a horrible vacation. Check-in in Bayonne was ridiculous, all of the tablets ... Read more

This is my second cruise, however; it was my first time with Royal Caribbean. I was extremely excited because the Allure of the seas was said to be one of the biggest ships in the world. I would recommend this cruise for singles, or ... Read more
