  3. Allure of the Seas
We have taken our granddaughters on a cruise every summer for the past 10 years. This was our second time with them on the Allure and they loved every minute onboard! These large ships offer a lot of activities for teens ( they are 15 and 17) and as grandparents, we can keep busy doing our thing knowing they are having a wonderful time. We loved the RC app that allowed us to keep in touch, since we never purchase Wi-Fi on the ship. It's annoying to see so many people who "stay connected" on their phones all day instead of enjoying all the ship has to offer.The Allure is beautiful, just big enough without being overwhelming and the crew is exceptional. I needed medical attention for the first time ever in all my 50+ cruises. Nothing major, just a cut that needed a few stitches. I couldn't get over the facility--fully equiped and efficient. We had a balcony overlooking the Boardwalk. Fun watching the Aqua Show from our room. The food in Americon was perfectly fine. We have a vegetarian granddaughter who is fussy and she ate every V meal offered on the nightly menu and loved them. Even though we have seen all the shows (this was our 3rd Allure sailing), we love Mama Mia, Blue Planet and the Ice Show. They never disappoint! We are Casino Royal Prime, so drinks are free. We are a little disappointed that Video Poker machines in a bank to the left of the bar have been replaced by slot machines (that were always empty) since that's our game of choice but we managed to win and lose and have fun, just the same!

Another Great Week
