Terrible service and unfriendly crew

We are loyal RC Platinum members. The Allure is a beautiful ship but the service and food is not up to RC standards as we have experienced on previous cruises. The crew appeared to just be going thru the motions without any enthusiasm. If you got in their way they would give you a dirty look and expect you to move rather than them moving for you. I have never experienced such terrible service ...

While there were great things about this cruise, overall I was somewhat glad for it to be over by the end. This was my first cruise and the experience was generally disappointing, with some good parts. Embarkation was awful. Complete chaos and the staff along the way were very Curt and seemed irritated with us at times. By the time we were actually on board, we felt like we just wanted to go ...

Everything on this ship is over crowded. Lines and long waits for almost all the dining venues. Everywhere we went aboard this ship was crowded except for the Diamond Lounge. This was a Caribbean cruise and the design of the ship, open on the inside, means the ship was very warm throughout. We had our room thermostat turned all the way down and the room never really cooled off. Lots to do but ...

Did not sail to St. Thomas as planned. Would not allow any refunds.

I choose this cruise because it did sail to St. Thomas. Several days before boarding I found out that they would not sail to St. Thomas as planned. Royal would not allow any refunds or transfers to another ship. They did not even notify us. We found out by trying to book a shore excursion. We called Royal. They would not allow any cancellations or re-book or transfer to another ship. We ...

I've been told for years that I need to try a cruise. Everything is included, you visit multiple exotic locations, the people are so nice...Ok, well, not everything is included and when you're a 1st timer (they have ways of determining this when you're booking), they do the best they can to nickel and dime you. The included restaurant fare is typical of a standard all-you-can-eat buffet in the US, ...

Lots of luxury and little variety of fun aboard.

I really would have liked to see more variety on the boat, lots of luxury, lots of people, few pools and slow service in the restaurants. The shows more of the same. It's not a "fun ship". The service charges you consume that are not included are very high. There is no variety of activities in the pool or when the boat is on the sea. Only the 70 's party was super fun for everyone. Captain's ...

All of my other cruises, 5+, have been on Carnival. I wanted to try RCI because the ships seemed bigger and better. I was wrong. Yes, the ship was big and pretty but not better. I felt nickeled and dimed and was bored. The rooms are smaller, parties were hard to come by. Shows were okay. While the comedians were funny, they should have new materiel by the end of the cruise. The Quest was ...

Allure of seas embarkation was fast and organized with pleasant people directing you. Get a diagram of ship at check in as it is helpful to get your bearings. The front of the ship is the entertainment venues and the back of the ship is food venues. The boardwalk and aqua theatre are in the back with the sports deck ( flow rider, rock climbing wall. Putt putt golf,,ping pong). The boardwalk is ...

My wife and I cruised with my daughter her boyfriend and our son and his family. We have curised multiple times with Royal Caribbean and each time the included services go down. They seem to get their hand deeper into my pocket each subsequent cruise. I mean really, do you need to charge for bottled water? The quality of the food was not great. The buffet was similar to going to the Old Country ...

Cruise was chosen as it is an Oasis class for its size. Reasons were for Solarium, Spa and 150 Central Park. On a birthday event at the Spa I was not allowed in at my booked time. One of the staff were not only not understanding but lied and said the room wasn't ready and was being sanitized. After 45 minutes they admitted another couple was using it. There was a refund and ...
