  3. Allure of the Seas
We are a family of 3-mother in her 50's and 2 adult daughters in their 20's. This was our 17th cruise-I believe our 4th on RC. Overall the Allure was the best vessel we have sailed on. It has a magnificent design with lots of light and interesting open areas. Our favorite locale was Central Park on deck 8. That being said, our experience on this ship was average. Most staff interactions were average to below average. The general demeanor of the staff seemed to be indifference and at times unpleasant. Notable exceptions included our assistant waiter on Deck 4 Neeraj-who consistently aimed to please with great effectiveness and who sincerely contributed to our dining pleasure, and our Stateroom attendant for cabin 6196: Pande-who was very amiable and extremely hard working. Many staff seemed to be helpful in a begrudging way. Staff morale seemed fair at best, perhaps they are under too much strain from the sheer size of the passenger load. THe food was average overall. We did the 3 evening specialty dining package at the sushi restaurant and Park 150 (twice). THe food was excellent in both of these venues. However, in Park 150 the service-while obviously well intended and pleasant was extremely disorganized and slow. We waited over one hour to order our dinner at Park 150-this was excessive-despite the pleasing nature of all the servers. We enjoyed the jogging deck on 5 and the spacious outdoor ares on Decks 14 and 15. On only one occasion did we find it difficult to locate 3 available pool chairs. We enjoyed the DIamond Lounge-most evenings and found the atmosphere to be quite pleasant. We had an ocean facing cabin-which was well designed

Magnificent vessel
