First let me start off by saying we did not pay for this cruise. This was an incentive trip from one of my husband's vendors so our experience may be a little different in some aspects. We are 48 years old and were not traveling with children. Therefore I cannot comment on any family activities other than to say we never saw the carousel open, never saw the build-a-bear type store or the candy ...

Nice Ship; Very Basic Cabin; Cruise Director Not the Best

This ship is certainly big and there are so many beautiful features to see. The shows are brilliant particularly Mamma Mia but the Ice Games show and the Aqua Show were also brilliant. The food was a little below the quality we received on the Brilliance of the Seas earlier this year and the wait staff were overly attentive, constantly begging you to give them a 10 in the post cruise ...

Booked this trip for my wife's "decade" birthday. Thought it would be a good way to see different parts of Europe. However, a day in each port only gives you a small taste of each location. But that is what we were looking for. I've sailed on Royal Caribbean twice before and three times on Carnival. I found the check in process in Barcelona to be extremely smooth. Short lines moved right ...

Allure Review Transportation - We shared a cab from the Renaissance Barcelona Hotel to the port for only 20 Euros. Great ride at a great price despite the traffic. On boarding - Totally easy. At the Barcelona port I gave the tagged checked bag to the porter and quickly headed to the RCCL check-in. For Gold members there were very few in line. Post check in but prior to boarding the ship ...

It is 5 AM, and I am in California, but still on Europe time. About 72 hours back, but still can't sleep much past 3:30 AM, so I decided to do this review. Keep that in mind. This was my third cruise; second on Royal Caribbean, both to the Mediterranean. I will start by saying my first cruise was about fifty years ago, and such a disaster (think Titanic; I didn't drown, but that was sort ...

The Preliminaries. TA booked us into a hotel in the Barcelona suburb of Poblenou, 15 Euro taxi from Las Ramblas. Melia was uber modern and very comfortable. The area had two malls for last minute shopping, H&M, Zara, Burger King etc. wife was spoiled for choice. Had a lovely meal in a local street restaurant on Saturday evening with local families, local food well cooked and at local prices. ...

We enjoyed our trip on the Allure of the Seas. Overall we had a great time, but there are some things we wish we knew before we went on our trip. We did not know about many services, options, and hidden away places until we had been on the ship for 2 or 3 days. Hopefully, these tips will help you on your next cruise... 1. My Time Dining.

We have sailed on RC many times, and Barcelona was the easiest port ever in terms of embarkation. Upon arrival at the ship, porters met us at the taxi and took our luggage immediately, so we didn't have to drag bags at all. Check in began at 11, and obviously most people waited until later, because we had no wait at all and were heading onboard within about 15 minutes. NOTE: There is a duty ...

We sailed on the Allure in January around the Caribean and were so impressed that we booked again for August sailing out of Barcelona which was ideal for us with only a 2 hour flight this time from Manchester. Embarkation and disembarkation was the quickest we have ever experienced. The ship is lovely. Yes it's large but it easy to find your way around with the monitors. We found 90% of ...

We travelled from within Spain by car to Barceleona the day before we were due to sail. Parked in the World Trade Centre Car Park, using their cruise parking deal, and stayed in the hote located above it - the Eurostar Grand Marina. The hotel was good with fantastic views of Barcelona and literally just a few minutes from the cruise port, visible from the hotel. Embarcation at noon was ...
