We chose this cruise for the ship, not for the destinations as it was a repositioning cruise and we had previously done all these ports. Our cabin was terrific, a bit skinnier than I expected, from the photos that I had previously seen. ... Read more

We sailed from Sydney to Singapore on the ovation. As suite members we found the embarkation and disembarkation experience great as we obviously had priority. The ship is very big and beautiful and being new has far more advanced ... Read more

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

Food was absolutely disgusting. Presentation was poor and looked like a five year old had put something on a plate. No consistency. We would order the same dish and it looked completely different. The shows were not that great ... Read more
