Terrible service and unfriendly crew

|

We are loyal RC Platinum members. The Allure is a beautiful ship but the service and food is not up to RC standards as we have experienced on previous cruises. The crew appeared to just be going thru the motions ...

Lots of luxury and little variety of fun aboard.

I really would have liked to see more variety on the boat, lots of luxury, lots of people, few pools and slow service in the restaurants. The shows more of the same. It's not a "fun ship". The service charges you ...

Constant barrage to buy more things, and constant fees which added up to a lot!

We went on the RC because it according to the checklist seemed to have the same things as Disney but cost was much better. It was a huge mistake. The environment was not at all kid friendly. They have things for ...

RCI comes off as only caring about ways to take your money.

Sailed on Allure of the Seas. Huge ship. From an engineering standpoint extremely impressive, some shows were good, and that's about the best thing I can about the cruise. RCI made this huge ship with tons of ...
