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 ...

Too many people on this ship

We did the Mediterranean Cruise followed by the transatlantic back to Fort Lauderdale in October/November. In defense of the ship, it is a beautiful ship and has so much to offer the cruiser whether a family or ...

It's not definite that we will rebook on this cruise line, as I had hoped.

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 ...

Royal ruined the WOW factor for us.

We cruise with Royal because they are a very good cruise line with a great choice of entertainment, excellent staff and a high standard in dining options. As well as that they allways have a very good range of ...

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 ...

As an experienced traveller, I was looking forward to my first RC cruise. There were definitely positives, but also a few large negatives. Food - good selection, no complaints. Not excellent food but definitely ...

A bigger ship doesn't get better.

The ship is too big, the more state rooms they add just means more people to eat and use the facilities. They fill the rest of the ship with, flow rider, rock climbing, ice rink, not really necessary as you are off ...

Just Too Big For Us, and Unimpressed with the Food

I've been on several RCI ships, including Freedom, Majesty, and Brilliance. My wife before joined me on Freedom of the Seas, and that turned out to be our favorite ship. We had high hopes for Allure, so maybe ...

Not for Us

This was our 5th cruise with RCL. Have always had a good time . However, the allure of the seas was just not for us, we found it rather crass. There is no doubt that it is a marvellous bit of engineering and very ...
