Allure of the Seas: Tips & Shore Excursions

Sail Date: April 2011
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

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


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 More

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.... Less

Cabin review: B2 Boardwalk View Stateroom with Balcony

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 CNN is the primary NEWS channel followed by TNT for Movies

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
