Just got off Allure's 7-day western caribbean cruise. Overall the cruise was good but not the best we've had. Shows were good. Chicago doesn't seem to be appropriate for the "cruise" crowd. I'm a huge theatre goer. Last year's production on Oasis of Hairspray was awesome so we were disappointed with Chicago. Headliner show was great and so was Blue Planet.

The dinner food in the MDR was also very disappointing. Several nights the food wasn't even edible -- way too salty (mostly the pastas). Everyone at our table felt the same way. Some nights the food was good but overall very disappointing. Breakfasts in the MDR were wonderful as always. Mostly ate at Windjammer for lunch to avoid the MDR. Windjammer was good. Never had to wait for a table and the food choices were varied. We didn't eat at any specialty restaurants except Johnny Rockets - and it was great.

Crew was great - very helpful and willing to do anything for you. Bars were great as were the clubs.

Very disappointment with our excursion to Labadee. I had worked with Access office to reserve an accessible cabana. The cabana was accessible the getting to the cabana was not. They did give us a refund.

Allure of the Seas August 10-17 - Didn't live up to our expectations

Cabin Review

Cabin 6236

Accessible Oceanview cabin with balcony hump. Room was great. We had table and two chairs plus two loungers. Spent a good bit of time there.
