The Allure is a big ship and you need to be prepared for it when sold out like our cruise was. That said RC should not have made the venues so small for the amount of people on board. Time after time you could not get in to bars that ... Read more

This was my 3rd cruise ever. The first was a short Carnival Carnival cruise 10 years ago, then an 8 night this past January on the Independence of the Seas. I was slightly apprehensive about 11 nights at sea: would there be enough to do, ... Read more

We live in Fort Lauderdale and it's the home port for the Allure. Because of this, the ship gets a lot of publicity. We ordinarily don't like a ship this big, but we were curious. Several of our friends had sailed on her and raved about ... Read more

We have cruised on RCCL 25 times. We have taken 7 transatlantic cruises, 5 on RCCL and 2 on Celebrity. There were some wonderful things about the Allure and some disappointing aspects. Entertainment was spectacular. Best of any cruise we ... Read more

Background: I have traditionally been a luxury or upper mainstream cruiser, and cruise for relaxation and for destination. Since retiring I have branched out and Royal Caribbean has filled primarily a niche role for me as the line of ... Read more

Evidently, they were more interested in getting into port to celebrate their first docking in America than their existing passengers that made the transatlantic voyage. It took us 4 hours of waiting before we desinbarked. When they did get ... Read more

This was our 17th cruise on RC. All our other cruises were wonderful. This one was NOT! I don't know if RC uses the repositioning cruises as training schools for their staff, but it sure seemed that way. First the good. Ports of call and ... Read more

We choose cruises for the ports of call or destinations. This was a 24 day back-to-back cruise, leaving from Harwich and finishing in Boston. The weather was dry and sunny throughout and we enjoyed all the ports we stopped at. It would ... Read more

Our first TransAtlantic cruise! We absolutely enjoyed it each day. Our cabin was clean, very comfortable beds, towels always refreshed, cabin steward always pleasant. Loved the size of the ship easy to get around and this class ship most ... Read more

When I purchase a transatlantic cruise, I expect the food to be above average. We are not the college/Caribbean crowd that gets drunk and parties on a 4 night cruise out of Miami, the demographics on board are more affluent. I had a ... Read more

We had booked this TA 11 months in advance, and chose it because we would sail on the Brilliance, our favourite class of RCI ships. The ports were more or less fun, interesting, or not so much. This review concentrates on our 15-day ... Read more

"Sorry that area is closed" is a refrain we heard on a daily basis in one or more areas. 1. Royal Crown Lounge is for Diamond only. 2. Colony Club is closed for private event. 3. Open dining area behind Windjammer is ... Read more

This was our 25th cruise. We cruise with different cruise lines. RCC has the smallest rooms of any cruise lines we have been on. You had to slide around the bed to get to the balcony or other side of the room. Their beds are ... Read more

Let me start by saying we have cruised many times, with Celebrity and Princess but this cruise was inferior to both of those lines. It was our first time with RCCL and we chose this as a relaxing way back across the Atlantic after a trip ... Read more
