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 ...

Floating Mall

Not Too Alluring

Spending longer than normal on this ship I got a good look and feel for this particular cruise. First, the ship is so large that it docks at industrial docks. Lots of cranes, truck noise and very ugly views. The ...

Disappointed

This has only been my second cruise and I feel completely disappointed. The food was average and the staff seem overworked and most places understaffed. I know the allure is the largest boat in the world and that ...

Very Disappointing

My wife and I just returned from the Western Mediterranean route starting and ending in Rome. We were very much looking forward to being on the Allure since we had heard so much about it. We came away very ...

Allure of the Seas was not so alluring on its first transatlantic cruise

Traveling with my wife on Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas transatlantic crossing of April 19 - May 1, 2015 was our 11th cruise in eight years, on four different lines. Having done one cruise each on Norwegian ...
