My wife and I, along with our best friends, decided to try one of RC's "mega-ships," and this one matched up with the dates we could go. Allure was amazing! It is so huge with so many things to do. You really have to try not to have fun if you're going to have a bad time on this ship!
Embarkation was the smoothest we have experienced (this is only our 5th cruise, but still). We were through in almost no time. We took off from RC's new port in Miami. Huge, but very efficient. Workers at the port were great!
The ship itself is massive - the balcony cabins wrap around inside the ship, overlooking a couple different areas. We had an ocean-view balcony cabin and loved it. More roomy than other ship balcony rooms we've had. Nice bed, couch, room to move around. Bathroom was good as well. The only negative about the room was the closet - small and crowded. Did not compare favorably with the Princess ships we've been on. But minor issue - other than that, great room.
Great, except the small closet and the lack of selection on TV. Princess has much better choices. Not that we wanted to watch much anyway. On a previous cruise on Regal Princess, my wife was sick for a day. We were very glad to have a selection of free movies to watch, None here (but thankfully, neither of us got sick).
Great embarkation and disembarkation!
Walked off the ship to shop and look around flamingos and dolphins right by the port. It was nice.
