We chose this ship & cruise because of the great reviews & port locations. Originally we were scheduled to visit St. Kitts, St. Thomas, & Bahamas. Two months before our trip we were notified that one of the ships propulsion units was impaired and therefore the itinerary was changed. Instead of St Thomas, Puerto Rico. In addition, only 4 hours in Puerto Rico. And our day in the Bahamas was cut short to half a day as well. This was a huge hit, especially considering we paid over $11k ticket for the suite - to now find out we could make no changes and were stuck. Ugh!! SERVICE - not impressed. Aside from the suite lounge servers, this entire experience felt as though we were being shuttled like cattle. Most disappointing was the spa. On my birthday we scheduled couples massages - showed up and were shuttled into a “relaxation room” with 25 other people and no place to sit. We left immediately and cancelled our services, only to get a rude response from the desk attendant about why it was so crowded. In addition we were upsold constantly, phone calls about dinner packages, peddling in the shopping areas about drink packages. We received emails from our suite concierge ahead of our trip stating she could make reservations for us at restaurants or excursions. We asked ahead to schedule reservations on my birthday and never received a response from the concierge nor did our reservation get scheduled. ROOM- loved the room. Suite attendant was excellent. Plenty of space. Needs some updating though. SHIP- again, disappointment is the word. Although there’s a TON to do and my kids really enjoyed the activities, everything felt very enclosed and compartmentalized. We felt the ship rock through the entire trip even though the weather was perfect. Not sure if it’s because of the size? It was so crowded everywhere. The restaurants were insane. EXCURSIONS- good question. We didn’t book 6 months ahead and by 3 months out everything was sold out. We figured when we got on board more would open up... not the case. Again, major disappointment!! All in all, this is most likely our last RC cruise we will embark on. What a big ticket that was NOT worth the value. Celebrity hands down exceeds RC in every aspect. Read Less

I chose this cruise because it was a time my family could come (9 people in 3 cabins) and Ft Lauderdale was convenient to get to for all. I had heard the Allure was a great ship but I was a bit disappointed that there were no water slides and that RCL no longer had the Dreamworks characters or any substitution. Also, there was no parade on this cruise though they were rehearsing one for the future. Still, everyone had loads of fun with the activities on board. We landed in Ft Lauderdale on the day before (which we usually do) and got on board at 11:15 AM. There were plenty of people to help us learn about the ship and there even was a talk about the ship on embarkation day- though it could have been better. Our luggage was delivered on time though we went to the dining room in shorts and our "special" family t-shirts. The ship is due for changes (retrofitting) and it needs it. There were places where it was showing it's age. Also, as stated before, there were no water slides which almost all ships now seem to have. The service was excellent throughout. We had some issues (like a toilet that stopped working) that were resolved quickly. There were many venues and choices of entertainment and fun that were easy to get into- even without a reservation- and the quality of the entertainment throughout the ship was excellent- especially the orchestra. My wife got sick while on board and had to see the doctor. They took good care of her, allowed her to access movies and room service without charge and even gave us something special at the end of the cruise. Our cruise critic meet and mingle was not attended by as many as should have come. The crew accommodated us and provided a couple of bottles of champaigne for prizes The food was excellent though somewhat salty at times. The menu had enough choices though only 3-4 change daily while 4-5 are served every day. I was not happy to see that you could pay more for a "premiere" steak or full lobster but understand that it would save $40-50 from going to a specialty restaurant- which we never do and don't recommend. Only Chops Grill is actually worth it if you decide to partake. Service throughout was excellent as all of our wants and needs were quickly met and our waiters and cabin personnel were very attentive. The shore excursions were a bit disappointing though the Yunke rainforest tour in Puerto Rico was excellent. The tour of St Martin could have had 1-2 more stops rather than spending 30 minutes at a shopping area. In Labadee, there were not enough trams to handle the crowd at the end of the day and my daughter-in-law and family had to hustle to get back to the ship on time. Most of my family were never on a cruise before and they had a great time. One even booked an open cruise that she can use within one year. The kids enjoyed the mini-golf, trivias, sports court and, of course the food though my 5 year old grandson chose to spend time with his parents rather than go to Adventure Ocean. He was very close to 6 but had to stay with the 3-5 year olds and was not crazy about that. The teens did not spend much time in the lounge but explored other things like the zipline and rock climbing. I always enjoy karaoke and they had that daily. It will be interesting to see the Allure after she is retrofitted and cleaned up. She is a fun ship and there wasn't as much "selling" as I was led to believe. Oh, they do sell but it wasn't pushy- at least to me. Read Less

We docked out of Fort Lauderdale, Fl. and we had two days there before our ship sailed. While in Ft. Lauderdale I’d recommend eating at the Funky Buddha! Fun atmosphere, great food, and flights which allow you to sample the beers. We also went to the Everglades. It was exhilarating! Our captain was lively and fun! He honestly made the experience what it was-enjoyable while simultaneously providing us with the history and information of the Everglades in a hang-on-to-every-word way! Now the important part -the cruise! Wow! Wow! Wow! This was my first cruise so I did a little research and I knew that bags wouldn’t be delivered to our rooms right away so I had everything I needed in my carry-on (This is important to ensure a comfortable first few hours). The room was a good size and we had a balcony that overlooked Central Park which was awesome! Central Park- what a beautifully crafty area to the ship. If ever you’re missing that outside world (not likely because of the port stops) go to Central Park. The view is captivating and you get your nature fix. There were tons of pools and although sometimes finding a chair (or two) by one was somewhat challenging (it’s the place to be!) the setup was convenient. The food was great! We went to our reservations at American Icon Grill the first two nights but favored the Windjammer, buffet style, and that it ultimately were we ended up eating the remaining 5 days. We visited St. Marteen, San Juan, and Labadee. My biggest disappointment was that we were only in San Juan for 6 hours. Not nearly enough time to explore. Labadee was my favorite stop! Relaxing and beautiful! Though, if you plan on shopping- BEWARE! The Haitians will bombard you. I initially wanted to support them and though I did buy some stuff from the small shops, I wanted to get out of there as quick as possible which is unfortunate because I would have shopped more. Unfortunately I did not do any excursions on the ports. Last but definitely not least. The entertainment! I cannot speak more highly of this part! Second to none! Incredible! Sensational! And, well, ENTERTAINING! The aqua show: so nice I saw it twice. No really. I had to go see it a second time. You don’t want to look away. The game shows: fun! You’ll get your laughs in! Contests: belly contest, wakeboard contest, dive contest,etc. GO! The ice show- A MUST SEE! Not only is it fun, entertaining, and well choreographed but it was touching and I found myself holding back tears at one point. Honestly, the entertainment on the ship was my favorite part of the cruise and the next cruise I go on (because there will certainly be a next and a next after that and so on) I will hit up every entertainment opportunity. Cannot speak for kids on the cruise because this was a trip just for my fiancé and I but I will say that I can’t wait to bring my kids w us the next time we go! I know they’d have an experience of a lifetime. Highly recommend this cruise line! Read Less
