Friendly and fun, yes... High quality food and drink, no

We'd been on a Royal Caribbean cruise before and had a great time, but this trip we walked away with a few disappointments. If you want to lounge in the pool on sea days, then maybe the Allure isn't for you. Because ...

We booked this ship because we loved her sister, the Oasis of the Seas. I was not very impressed with the activities onboard, I was very bored. The shows were amazing though. The dining was good. We ate in the ...

Beautiful ship - however, I felt it was too crowded

The ship was extremely beautiful and large. Entertainment was great. However, shore excursion to the beach bomb out badly. Most of the staff was very accommodating; however, during the days when we were at sea, ...

I first sailed the allure back in 2015 and had a 5 star trip. This time I say 3 stars but the dynamic was different because we were traveling with a 15 month old and it was our second time on the ship so the newness ...

Great for families

Embarkation was so much better at Terminal A than in other terminals. We were handled very quickly and our rooms were ready when we boarded at 11:30. We had our luggage within an hour or two. We had a family ...

Cruise not worth the price we paid for

Ship is popular but we didn’t enjoy it much. The foods or entrée need improvement. Balcony rooms are a lot smaller compared to other ships that we sailed before. The entertainment or shows need improvement ...

Good experience, but probably not again

This was my 8th cruise, 2nd with RC. This was my first time on a mega ship and have to admit that I have mixed feelings. The ship is very impressive both size and condition. It was one of the smoothest sailings that ...
