This was our 5th cruise and first on Royal Caribbean (have another one planned in Oct). Have sailed Norwegian and Princess twice each before. Since we live in Texas, Galveston is great to sail from as no air travel is needed. Something ... Read more

Sailed November 2014
Myself and 11 other people cruised on this ship November 2014. My experience getting to the ship was a little worrism because we flew in the same day the ship sailed out (never will do again). Let's just say the ship was scheduled to ... Read more

I would echo almost all of the positive impressions found in past reviews of Allure of the Seas except those concerning the on board wines served in the Specialty Restaurants as well as the Concierge Lounge. As a long-time wine educator ... Read more

After reading some quite negative reviews my partner asked me to pen something in the hope that future cruisers may get some good feedback. We are a couple of older working people who looked forward to this cruise for 9 months from the ... Read more

Returned two hours ago from an 11 day cruise to the Canaries. An outbreak of Noro-virus ensured that several thousand people were kept waiting at Southampton, either shoved into a departure lounge (no water or toilets) or freezing outside ... Read more

It is a given that if you have booked yourself onto either Royal Caribbean's Oasis or Allure of the Seas ships, you are well aware that they are the largest passenger cruise ships in the world. You have probably done your homework ranging ... Read more

We were dissappointed with our cruise especially since we have sailed on Royal Carribean and were very pleased. It seems that the Mariner has cut back in many areas to save costs. Our getting on the ship took a very long time...about 2 ... Read more

INDEPENDENCE OF THE SEAS OCT 9TH- OCT 20TH 2011 This was our first cruise and also our first holiday for over 5 years, so a perfect holiday was well needed. RCI have ticked every box, I cannot complain or give a negative feedback on ... Read more

Regent Seven Seas Cruises sets the standard in all-inclusive luxury cruising! I can't say enough about how exquisite everything was -- the ship, food, staff, and state room. We booked the 10-night "Scenic Havens" cruise aboard SS ... Read more

Sailed September 2011
My wife and I decided to come to Florida for a few weeks and decided on a cruise for 7 days from Miami / Ft L so the Allure leaving the day after we arrived was too good an opportunity to miss. We had previously cruised twice with ... Read more

Firstly, let me say, I never liked the thought of a cruise - probably as a result of impressions gained when growing up as a child (i.e. cruises were for pensioners, full of unbearable overdressing, social climbers & nouveau riche ... Read more

This was my 9th cruise 8th with RCI. We were on the Independence of the Seas sailing from Southampton 29/11/2010 for an 11 night cruise to the Canaries. We stayed in Southampton the night before joining the ship and saw the ship come into ... Read more

Would the crowds be overwhelming? Would we spend most of our time standing in line? Shoulder-to-shoulder with other passengers? Searching for seats at every event? We needn't have worried and should have known better - because the folks ... Read more

We waited many years before booking an Alaska cruise. After all, the whole idea is to enjoy the water, the tropical climate, and the exotic islands. Well...been there and done that enough times that it was time for a new adventure. We were ... Read more

Let me start by saying a big thank you to Royal Caribbean for allowing my wife and I to change our cruise date to July 5th 2009 from May 10th.  Swine flu caused the May 10th sailing to be re-routed to Oregon, Washington, and ... Read more

Jim (67) and I (62) chose this ship for our 25th cruise, mainly because it is the nicest ship in the Carib this summer, and has (we thought) a live Hold'Em Poker table.  Overall, the ship is stunning and service is good.  We are ... Read more
