The most fantastic cruise of our lives

Very Disappointed - Shocked, Really

This was my second cruise. The first cruise was on the Navigator of the Seas. No comparison - Navigator is such a classy ship in comparison, and the experience on Navigator of the Seas wins over Allure of the Seas ...

Great experience but this ship was made for the Caribbean

If you're looking for a modern ship with every amenity imaginable look no further. Royal Caribbean certainly outdid themselves with the Oasis class of ships. A ship this size begs the question, is it possible for a ...

Kind of Meh

We were already in Spain, outside of Barcelona, and it made sense to take advantage of the time and place to extend our time in the area and see more of the Mediterranean ports, including those in Italy. Although ...

This was our first cruise and we had a great time. We booked a balcony cabin and ended up on the 14th floor, mid-ship on the port side. Our room attendant was a treasure, friendly and helpful and most of the staff ...

This was to be a very special trip for us. A 25th celebration, 25 years in the making to travel to Europe and experience a great ship, which was our first cruise and I had hoped a start to several cruises in the ...

Allure of the Seas was not for me; sailed Oct. 11-18/15.

This was my 8th Cruise. I totally agree with a previous review that our cruise was very impacted by the large group of 3000 and not in a good way. We had 5 port days and finding a place to have quick breakfast was ...

Great ship, but I need more than hardware.

The difference between RCI and others: Great ships - and you need to take what they offer. So out of 80 cruises only 4 were with RCI: Sorry - but their service level is just not ours. Once in a lifetime I ...
