Allure of the Seas Cruise Review by RobinKS

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2018
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Embarkation was a breeze, barely any wait.

We had sailed on Allure before and were still impressed with the ship, despite it's age. There were some areas that needed some attention - Freestyle machine outside Sorrentos, men's restroom on pool deck, but overall well maintained.

This was our 9th Royal Caribbean cruise and have to agree with the common trend in reviews that service and quality are in a downward trend. We sailed Anthem last May and saw significant cuts on this sailing both in amount of onboard activities as well as food in the MDR. If you're a fish/seafood lover, you'll be very happy with MDR menus, if not, you'll probably get quickly bored. Both starters and desserts only had one or two changes each night. We have always enjoyed the MDR in the past, but will most likely start frequenting specialty restaurants. Our dining staff was also very slow for just a table of 4. We were seated right inside the door and could see that the majority of diners arrived after we did (traditional seating) and the majority left before we did an we aren't slow eaters and ordered as soon as waiter arrived.

Entertainment as usual was very good. Was disappointed that our reservation for the Comedy Club on the final night was moved to the main theatre instead of the intimate Comedy club venue - very different experience.

Debarkation was also a breeze.

Cabin D2 10276

Cabin was nice, but very cramped once sleeper sofa was pulled out at night for our teenage son.

Everglades Tour

This was fun, but disappointed that airboat ride was very short.

This was fun, but river tubing was more like a lazy river, which is not quite as adventurous as we were expecting. Adventure falls part was a joke.

ATV Adventure

This was a lot of fun, but returned us to the pier just minutes before all aboard time.
