Allure of the Seas Cruise Review by tvrugg21

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2019
  • Destination: the Eastern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Interior


Layout is interesting and fun atmosphere. Feels like a small city on the seas.


Interior stateroom was small but still comfortable.


Service is great. Everything you could expect.


Not impressive at all. Maybe you should consider specialty restaurants because there isn’t anything special happening at the buffet or main dining. But if you have to add specialty restaurants to get good food it limits the value of the cruise line.


Loved the space to walk/run while having decent views.


Shows were decent but not impressive. Comedy club was worth the time. Skip the big shows in Amber Theater and go to any live music venues at night which are very good. Ice rink on cruise ship is unexpected and crazy! Ice Games was worth seeing.


This was beautiful but is not peaceful or quiet. Very noisy with talking and people brining their own battery powered speakers into space to play music.


Went pretty quickly. Watch out if you aren’t a RCL member already, you won’t board until shortly before noon.


Face recognition was a huge time saver. Express checkout was a little slow but still acceptable. Off the ship by 7:30ish.


St. Maartin - first time there. Will definitely go back. Check out Kay’s Jewelers. Can easily walk from cruise port to downtown.

San Juan - love shopping in this town. Low pressure and you can walk to shops easily.

Labadee - beautiful location. Unfortunately Artisan Village isn’t thought out well. Food is mediocre. Pressure for tipping and up sell for everything - have mindset of Jamaica or Nassau even though it’s RCLs port.

Cabin Review

Cabin 1V 11273

It was acceptable. Interior is always a little tight but you’re not spending much time there. Bed was comfortable.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

San Juan

Fort is walking distance as is downtown shops.


Only gets a 3 because it’s beautiful. Otherwise a 1 or 2 since you’re stuck with RCLs experience.
