Allure of the Seas

Sail Date: November 2012
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Pros: Embarkment procedure. Beautiful ship. In fact, unless you are actually looking at the ocean you really wouldn't realize you are on a ship. Specialty restaurants (additional $$). Rooms, beds, showers, room steward (Joanie), Roger in Chops Grille. Gym. Walking track. Service in Wind Jammer. Ken as the cruise director and his team were great. Loved the game Love and Marriage and Blue Planet and Aqua Theater water shows. Conrad the photographer was very engaging and took some fun and fantastic photos. Did like the photo viewing system, very organized and made it easy to review often. Liked the kiosks as well.

Cons: Main Dining service (Victor and his bunch). Main dining food, everything on board is nickel and dimed i.e. $2.00 for popcorn in the On Air bar when you have already spent well over $100.00 on beer during the game. Charging for food and drinks in some many restaurants seemed to be just confusing and limited where we went as we didn't feel that we wanted to keep More paying more for everything. .Pizza quality disapointing. Hygiene in cupcake shop needs some help as the worker continually touched her face and ran her fingers through her hair in the process of making an over sized cupcake. Deserts in main dining were hit or miss. The cost for photos seemed very excessive to me. I understand paying for the cd and charging a fair amount, but $400 seemed a little steep. With a ship the size of the Allure, it surprised me that the only y place to be able to get food after :00 p.m. is Sorentos or the promanade cafe. That was disappointing and frustrating. Less

Cabin review: D510218 Superior Outside View Stateroom with Balcony

Closet was very small, surprisingly small. Did like that there a lot of hangers though, that helped a little. The bed was the most impressive part, very comfy and big, definitely a major plus in my book.
