We chose the Allure for our first family cruise due to the wide variety of entertainments and facilities for both adults and teenagers. We weren't disappointed as everyone in our group had a fantastic time. The teenagers met a brilliant group of peers and have stayed in touch since we returned to the UK. The adults had a great time at all the shows and in the bars and restaurants. None of us could fault the food, drinks or service at any time in our trip. Our interconnected sea view balcony staterooms were well appointed and serviced promptly at all times (well done Lobo!). The embarkation and disembarkation processes were uncomplicated and pretty efficient given the vast numbers of guests being processed. The only criticism we would have (and one that will stop us repeating this type of cruise) is that we were very disappointed in the ports of call. Although Nassau was 'ok' in that we could wander around town on our own and see some of the locality, the remaining ports were all dedicated to extracting as many dollars from cruisers pockets as possible. We ended up buying an expensive excursion to a beach club on Roatan just to get away from the incessant hassling that we experienced at Cozumel and Costa Maya.
Reasonable space and facilities. Would have preferred some coffee/tea making facility to save having to trudge down to deck 5 every morning before breakfast. Beds were very comfortable and although we had a toilet blockage at one point, this was cleared very quickly (and remotely!).
