Our 3 generational family of 11 wanted to go on a mega ship. Some parts were great; others disappointing. The Aqua Theater show was wonderful. The ice show was a disappointment compared to the ice show that we saw on the Freedom in 2020 that used drones. This show was based on the board game Monopoly and was a yawn. It was disappointing that there weren't more variety/entertainment shows in ...

Let me start by saying, this is my fourth cruise, but it has been 14 years since I have been on a cruise. I need to do it more! I travelled with a first time cruiser, and he certainly wants to do it again! I think Royal Caribbean is the best cruise line I've ever used. Cabin-- 4 of 5 stars. See below. Public spaces- The public spaces were always clean, well-decorated, and inviting. ...

My wife and I were looking for a cruise to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had been on a recent cruise on the same ship. Royal had done a pretty good job of trying to keep cruisers safe from the Pandemic on that one. This time it was totally different. No pandemic protocols whatsoever. Children under 11 free and no vaccination required. So we spent 8 days in a full ship, cramped quarters, ...

This may be long but I found very little recent information all in one place in my research prior to departure, so here is a detailed review. We boarded out of Fort Lauderdale and our boarding time was 11:30am, we were told that they enforced this and I understand why, it regulated the flow and reduced large public gatherings (which is quite comical based on later events while on board). The ...

We sailed twice on Celebrity Reflection from Rome to Miami so we were ready to explore a new ship. This was our first Oasis class, and we were not disappointed with the ship as a destination on our Westbound Transatlantic from Barcelona on October 25th with many days at sea. With only one port en route (Malaga), we decided to spend 7 nights in Barcelona pre-cruise and enjoyed our stay at the ...

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 have taken. That includes the Broadway show, the Aqua show, the ice skating show and the headliner shows. The food in the main dining room was very good. Waiter ...

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, what would the weather be like, would I get sea sick if the water was choppy etc. I have to say the apprehension was unfounded. This was also an anniversary ...

Bed by the closet was a bit of an annoyance, but the cruise was great!

We chose this cruise as the rates for an inside cabin were really low, and then when we found the airfair was super cheap through the cruise line, we jumped at the chance. I have had a few different types of cruises on my to-do list and while I wanted a Transatlantic, I thought if I was going to be on ocean for that long I wanted to be on a large ship. It just so happens that the Allure was the ...

Food and Headroom Lacking

Even though The Allure of the Seas Ship and employees were fantastic, the food and lack of headroom were below average! They promised me 7' 6" of headroom in our stateroom, we only had about 6' 9" of headroom. Being 7' 2" tall on a 12 night cruise was not acceptable. The food was far below average also. The meat in the specialty restaurants were far below for what I was expecting! Except for ...

My wife and I are in our mid-60's and are Diamond Members with RCCL. After our next cruise, we will be Diamond Plus. We have been on about every size ship in the RCCL fleet and this was our second cruise on the Allure. We have been planning for a transatlantic cruise for some time, and this cruise fit in perfectly with our time frame and resources. We consider ourselves experienced travelers and ...
