Love Central Park

Allure of the Seas Cruise Review by Grambler

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2018
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Ocean View Balcony

We have sailed numerous times on Royal and this was out third on Allure of the Seas and we are booked again in April. What keeps us coming back? We absolutely love Central Park, it is beautiful in the morning and the evening. We love the freshly repaired salads and sandwiches at the Park Cafe.

The diving show Oceanaria in the Aqua theater never ceases to be amazing!

We read all the negative reviews about the crowds at the Windjammer but we have never waited more than a few minutes to get in and usually are able to walk right in and find a table. People complain about lack of variety from day to day but there is so many choices, you certainly could choose something different every day. My only complaint is the coffee is not great there and way too strong.

Breakfast is great at the other free options... Johnny Rockets, Solarium Cafe, Park Cafe and Wipeout Grill.

Chops Steak House is nice but not as nice as one on Oasis of the Seas.

We had drink package which includes Evian water but many bars said they did not have any, they did if they looked in the cooler on the swim deck but some were not interested in looking.

The hot dog stand is pretty plain unless you want a sausage other than a regular beef, hotdog (which you can find up in the Wipe Out Grill) They should offer some chili, onions cheese. I personally eat my hotdog plain but most do not.

This was out 17 th Cruise, 10th on Royal but we are going to focus more on Celebrity because I am sick of the nickel and dining on Royal. Charging for the popcorn at the shows seems silly.

Cabin Review

Ocean View Balcony
Cabin 4D 8288

It is a nice cabin although I would rather have the bed by the balcony rather than by the closet and it made it hard to get into the closet at times.
