We just returned from B2B 8-day cruises on the Allure. We have cruised on the Allure in the past.
Embarkation went very smoothly.
Once on board we headed to Deck 15 to enjoy the Solarium area until our cabin was ready. This is how we start every cruise on an Oasis Class ship. Our cabin, a Balcony on Deck 8 was good, not great, I'll talk more about that below.
