The most fantastic cruise of our lives

|

I've seen some less than stellar reviews regarding the RC Western Mediterranean. If you will notice, most of the complaints seem to be focused on alcohol problems, and posted by alcoholics (IMHO). The Allure of the ...

Very Disappointed - Shocked, Really

This was my second cruise. The first cruise was on the Navigator of the Seas. No comparison - Navigator is such a classy ship in comparison, and the experience on Navigator of the Seas wins over Allure of the Seas ...

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 ...

Great experience but this ship was made for the Caribbean

If you're looking for a modern ship with every amenity imaginable look no further. Royal Caribbean certainly outdid themselves with the Oasis class of ships. A ship this size begs the question, is it possible for a ...

Kind of Meh

We were already in Spain, outside of Barcelona, and it made sense to take advantage of the time and place to extend our time in the area and see more of the Mediterranean ports, including those in Italy. Although ...

A Fantastic Experience If You Plan Ahead

This was our first cruise and we had a great time. We booked a balcony cabin and ended up on the 14th floor, mid-ship on the port side. Our room attendant was a treasure, friendly and helpful and most of the staff ...

Allure is Too Big

Overall I had a good cruise with lots of friends onboard. I had a Balcony Cabin on Deck 11 near the forward elevators. My first full morning I went to walk on the walking/jogging track (great). I turned left from ...

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 ...

Too many people on this ship

We did the Mediterranean Cruise followed by the transatlantic back to Fort Lauderdale in October/November. In defense of the ship, it is a beautiful ship and has so much to offer the cruiser whether a family or ...

Good and Bad

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 ...

Yes, we will sail on the Allure again.

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 ...

It's not definite that we will rebook on this cruise line, as I had hoped.

This was to be a very special trip for us. A 25th celebration, 25 years in the making to travel to Europe and experience a great ship, which was our first cruise and I had hoped a start to several cruises in the ...

Allure of the Seas was not for me; sailed Oct. 11-18/15.

This was my 8th Cruise. I totally agree with a previous review that our cruise was very impacted by the large group of 3000 and not in a good way. We had 5 port days and finding a place to have quick breakfast was ...
