We were very happy with our Royal Caribbean cruise. We chose the Allure because we have a tween and a teen and they were excited about all of the activities that are available. We booked this vacation as our family's Christmas present.
EMBARKATION It was painless. It took us about 15 minutes to get on board. After going through security we received a band for our 11 year old to wear on his wrist.
STAFF The staff was friendly and went above and beyond to meet our needs. Our room attendant, Made, was excellent.
I bought along a hanging storage bag but did not need it. There was plenty of space for all four of us. The sofa folds into a double bed that our children shared. The balcony is a great place to eat breakfast and have coffee. We did not hear our neighbors at all. The room is very clean and up to date.
We arrived a few days early and went to the beach.
We did not have enough time to enjoy San Juan. We did walk to the forts.
We actually went to Labadee due to weather. This is a beautiful area with much to do. We were tired and enjoyed some time on the ship.
