1st time on mega ship and 1st time on RCCL

September 2019

St. Maarten-San Juan-Labadee, Haiti

Pros: Great Staff-most food great-(exception was desserts at Marketplace Grill). Specialty venue 150 Central Park was superb! Excellent food and service. Embarkation and debarkation down to a science. I went to all of the shows and they were very good. Mamma Mia was excellent!

Cons: If you don't purchase the drink package, it isn't always easy to find ice water or tea to drink(the complimentary drinks). Complimentary coffee, on the other hand was readily available. On other cruise lines I have been on, the buffet restaurant was always open(not for food)for you to get some water, tea, or lemonade. The door to our balcony evidently didn't seal all the way, because the first couple of nights was pretty windy and the wind howled through it. It wasn't just our stateroom. Others in the Central Park balcony rooms complained of the same thing. Also the showers are very small. If you are a person of size, I can see that this could be a problem.

Allure of the Seas, needs some love

September 2019

St, Kitts, Puerto Rico, Nassau Bahamas

Pros: Most of the ship is nice, lots of choices for things to do and great shows and lots of family activities

Cons: Ship seems like it needs so refreshing, also there I got the impression that they need more staff. Wish they didn't change the route from what was listed in the brochure, very disappointed in that

Allure of the Seas Cruise, July 7 - July 14.

July 2019

St. Martan, San Juan, and Labadie.

Pros: My companion and I enjoyed the cruise. The food, service, and entertainment were excellent. The staff was very accommodating and extremely friendly and responded to all our needs. The ports of call were convenient and interesting to visit.

Cons: The ship was very crowded because of the summer vacation time when children accompanied their parents. There were a total of 6,410 guests (of which 5,492 were double occupancy). The children did not bother us. They were well behaved.

A vacation to remember

September 2016

Nassau, Labadee and Falmouth. Our original ports were Nassau, St Thomas and St Maartin...detour due to hurricane Matthew.

Pros: The ship was exceptionally well maintained, clean and neatly manicured. Staff throughout the ship were friendly, helpful and delightful. Always something to do on the ship.

Cons: Although there was a great variety of food, the temp of the food was tepid not hot. Allowing pets in the Windjammer (we're not talking about allowing seeing eye dogs in) was deplorable. They were on the chair and table. The owner would pet the dog and, without washing his hands, use his fingers instead of the tongs provided to pick up food off serving bars. Highly unsanitary.

Allure of the Seas review

June 2016

St. Maarten, San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Labede, Haiti

Pros: Beautiful, well appointed ship, lovely Central Park gardens, Solarium area was serene. Should be 21 and older not 16. Promenade was quite colorful, very dramatic, incredible stores.

Cons: Had to make reservations to attend shows, time for dinner; too large a ship. When we were at Labade, we were given conflicting times and reasons why we were not able to use the kayaks as far as payment, time, or availability

An Outstanding Cruise

December 2016

Bahamas, St. Thomas, & St. Maarten

Pros: Although the ship is huge, we did not feel that we were crowded. There were all sorts of thing to do including the shows like Mama Mia, the Aqua dive show, Blue Planet, and a comedian. The crew was friendly and the service was outstanding!

Cons: The only cons we came across were our shore excursions thru Royal Carribean. We were looking for more historical tours to be informed about the islands and took one at each port. Alot of times it felt as though they were just taking us to places to shop. We were disappointed in both the Paradise Island sighteeing tour in the Bahamas and the Mountain Top & Blackbeards Castle tour. Take time to read the RC reviews on these tours.
