Allure Gets A Mixed Review For Our Family Cruise

Sail Date: July 2013
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
We came away from our cruise with very mixed feelings. I'll list the pros and cons as our group of seven saw them.

Pros: -Embarkation and disembarkation. Both were well organized.

-The Allure is a beautiful, clean, well maintained ship.

-Entertainment was of a high quality. In some cases, simply amazing.

-Our ocean view balcony staterooms were ample with plenty of storage.

We especially enjoyed the fact that our balconies could be opened so we

-Food in the main dining room and the Windjammer was consistently good.

-Sports deck activities were big fun!

Cons: -The ship was much, much, much too crowded!

-There was a long wait for elevators.

-We spent much time waiting in line for food.

-The dining room was so loud we could More barely carry on a conversation.

Our table was a piece of plywood on a table base and very tipsy.

-About 1/3 of the crew was excellent! Unfortunately the other 2/3 were

poor. Some were just rude. Others just seemed apathetic.
