I was traveling with a group not a cruise line I would have picked on my own because of comments I have heard from other people. The food was ok at best some was so tasteless I could not believe that what I put on my plate had no flavor. The bacon in the morning was mostly a large pile of warm but very what I considered raw bacon. They charge $4 for a can of coke/power aid, and $2.50 for a small bag of popcorn for the outside movie. Other cruise lines I have been on (which is 5 others) charge from $2 to $2.75 for a coke and nothing for popcorn. The staff on the cruise was mostly great very helpful, and friendly. The cabin was nice but for being larger then others I have had, had less space to put away stuff only three draws one was only two inches deep. Read Less

I was on the cruise alone as I could not find a room mate. I had heard so much about Allure of the Seas and it was my first cruise on Allure. I feel that the cruise is for children. There were too many children's. Even thought the Daily Compass specified no shorts, baseball caps, t shirts and flip flop were not acceptable for dinner in the dining room, I saw too many of them On Formal nights I think may 25% of the ship were appropriately dressed My room attendant provide excellent service. There were not enough activities for senior guests. The Shore Excursions were overpriced for the bus or boat ride. There should be a large golf carts available for senior guest from Ship to the end of the pier, being a large ship it is docked too far from the end of the pier. I do not think I will go on Allure again. Read Less

Allure of the Seas Sept 11 -18 I took my first cruise the year on the Allure Of The Seas, embarking on 0911/2011. Pro: The ship is beautiful. We ate at 150 Park Avenue and Giovanni's, both were fantastic. There were numerous pools and Jacuzzi's, many of which were open 24 hours a day and featured great water views. Embarkation was smooth and easy. I enjoyed all of the excursions and had no difficulty getting of the ship or meeting the representative of each excursion. The excursions were one of my favorite parts of my vacation. Unlike the ship, every excursion was well staffed with cheerful, friendly employees. Con: The Allure of the Seas has one glaring shortcoming. It is understaffed. I have never been on a vacation where there were fewer employees watching over the property. The only employees I saw were the ones tasked with taking my money. Absolutely minimalist pool service. The unsupervised nature of the ship led to some troubling incidents for the women in my party. At one point myself and fellow passengers had to basically form vigilante vigilante groups to ward off unruly passengers. In general, the last place on earth a single person should be. I was thankful I came with friends. My travelling companions and I took excursions in Haiti, Jamaica and Mexico and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We are planning to go back to Jamaica and stay at the Iberostar Rose Hotel in Jaimaica that was the site of one of our excursions. Disembarkation was a madhouse, as you might expect with no employees. We heard some voices over the PA system, but that was as close as we got to any organization. This was my first cruise. I found the positive aspects of the journey far outweighed any negative impressions. I plan on cruising again, but I will research more carefully next time to find a cruise line that avoids the glaring shortcoming of personal service that Royal Carribean exhibited. Read Less
