Pre-Cruise: stayed at Crowne Plaza Sawgrass Mills; Excellent Hotel with location within walking distance to the Mall. Lots of REAL bargains on shoes, handbags, purses, dresses, etc. Good food at Grand Lux restaurant with reasonable prices. Took Cab from Ft. Lauderdal Airport to Hotel $50.00 Hotel Stay $99 special Labadee: Excellent RCL private island. Bought some local carvings. Very Good BBQ served by RCL Staff and very good amenities as well. Would definitely re-visit this island. Was on the Oasis of the Seas last year and although the two ships are identical here are my comparisions: Broadway show "Hairspray" on the Oasis was better than "Chicago" on the Allure Headliner show "Beatlemania" on the Oasis was excellent ans so was "ABBA" on the Allure Comedy show on Oasis was much better than on the Allure Aqua Theatre show on the Oasis was much better than the one on the Allure New show called "Blue Planet" on the Allure was outstanding with special effects Food & Cabin were excellent on both ships Air Conditioning system throughout the ship was much better on the Allure than on Oasis whats else can I say but "Outstanding value for your money on an Outstanding ship". Don't settle for anything else....

Was on the Oasis of the Seas last year and although the two ships are identical here are my comparisions:

Broadway show "Hairspray" on the Oasis was better than "Chicago" on the Allure



Headliner show "Beatlemania" on the Oasis was excellent ans so was "ABBA" on the Allure



Comedy show on Oasis was much better than on the Allure



Aqua Theatre show on the Oasis was much better than the one on the Allure



New show called "Blue Planet" on the Allure was outstanding with special effects



Food & Cabin were excellent on both ships



Air Conditioning system throughout the ship was much better on the Allure than on Oasis



whats else can I say but "Outstanding value for your money on an Outstanding ship". Don't settle for anything else....

Cabin Review

Cabin
Boardwalk Balcony Cabin at back of the ship. Noisy at times but quiet after around 11:00pm at night.
We had very noisy neighbours with three children who made a lot of racket at night but this is not reflective of the cabin in general. Perhaps it was just our draw of luck.
A bit small in size compared to other balcony cabins we have used but generally very comfortable

  • Ocho Rios
    Falmouth Jamaica: New port site for large ships with construction is still in-progress although 75% is complete. Took an Ocho-Rios & Montego bay combined Tour which started with tour of Ocho Rios and then a stop a Dunns River Falls for those who wanted to go up the Falls. Then it was on to Montego Bay with a stop at Doctors Cove for Lunch. Overall a very relaxing trip with good amount of sightseeing. Cost of Trip: $99 each
