Embarkation: It was fast, however instead of giving you your SeaPass, you have to wait until 13h-13h30 for your rooms to be ready. Since it was too cold to be outside, all the guests were cramped inside, walking with their coats and ... Read more

Chose this trip because people we travel with wanted to try a large ship. 1. Embarkation was quick and smooth. (We are Diamond Plus so it is easier on us now.) 2. It is a big ship and had good entertainment, but we truly like the ... Read more

We have a group of 60 mature travelers, from first-timers to veteran cruisers. Picked Allure of the seas because of the itinerary and newness of the ship. Everyone enjoyed the cruise. The ship is pretty advanced with digital technology. ... Read more

We were spoiled on the Oasis and The Allure that being said we decided to venture out and book a 10 day based on the ports of call since the larger ships aren't able to go to some of these ports. We booked this as a future cruise and our ... Read more
