Decent ship, but amenities still lacking due to COVID
"When they finally ran their first full show on the sixth of seven days, the cruise director noted they had cancelled the show 21 times in a row.Firstly, RC needs to have a backup plan since there was no substitution for that night's entertainment when the aqua show was cancelled...."Read More

B2B on one of our favorite ships

We just returned from B2B 8-day cruises on the Allure. We have cruised on the Allure in the past. Embarkation went very smoothly. Once on board we headed to Deck 15 to enjoy the Solarium area until our cabin was ready. This is how we start every cruise on an Oasis Class ship. Our cabin, a Balcony on Deck 8 was good, not great, I'll talk more about that below. Entertainment was good - ...

I usually cruise by myself or with one of my best friends. For this cruise we had a group of six. Boarding was easy and quick. We had a blast on Allure, we had new cruisers and experienced cruisers in our group. We found all that we wanted to do on the cruise. So many activities (and beverages) to keep us entertained. I was in an ocean balcony, the room was the high level of clean that ...

I'll try to go in order: *Embarkation was chaotic and confusing. We got put in the wrong line and had to switch after waiting through it. Had to show different papers to different people at different "checkpoints" and it wasn't clear what the logic was behind each of the requirements at each place. There wasn't much information about what to do when you first got on board (for example, I didn't ...

Group of 6 adults and 2 teens: 6 of us had never cruised before. Happy to report we had an amazing experience and were very impressed with pretty much everything! The ship was gorgeous-sparkling clean, beautifully designed-it's huge. We never felt crowded or cramped. The boarding process was well organized and efficient, as was disembarking. We had an ocean balcony room with an adjoining room for ...

Had several cruises and vacations canceled in the last 2 years, so excited to finally get on a cruise. Most of this post was my comments shared with cruise line on their after cruise questionnaire. Not sure if they read, but after taking the time to comment, thought I would share. Went with husband and 2 kids, after canceling a Celebrity Cruise that was during this same time a few months ...

Our balcony was the perfect mix of ocean view and people watching. No noise issues when balcony door completely closed. The service and food were exceptional. The shows were full of talented performers, both the ice show and Mama Mia. The theme/show choice wasn't my favorite but still very entertaining. I have the coffee card and enjoyed iced coffee and cookies on the balcony. Best foods on this ...

I was part of a group convention that took place on the Allure in February 2022. The ship had about 3,000 passengers, or about 60% full. While we were told 'everything would be up and running' we found that generally was not true in all cases. In many situations, hours were cut or openings were hard to come by. Shows booked fast. When something was cancelled it was rarely replaced. There was ...

When I research my next cruise, I always tend to go for the lengthy in depth reviews because they inform me the most. I've been on multiple cruises, almost one every year since 2016 and thought it would be useful to offer my input on recent cruising. For reference, I am in my 20s, travelled with 2 "minors" (Put into quotes because they are both over 18 but under 21 so considered minors ...

I am a long time cruiser this is my first cruise on royal Caribbean. Service was fantastic but the beds were like sleeping on a box spring. Not enough options for food even buying a food package I was not impressed at all with the food. Food in the windjammer was the same food every night. Not enough sweets after meal. One night I was just looking for a cup of coffee. Nothing was open then ...

I choose this ship because of the activities and ports it docked at. This is the first time I didn’t have to wear a seasick patch during a cruise. Ship is very steady I barely felt it when we were docking. Mama Mia is Broadway quality. The diving show reminded me of Circus Soleil. Ice show was missing some performers so they could not perform the show but they were able to give us a showcase ...
