AMAZING ANNIVERSARY TRIP

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Loved this cruise, everything about it was great. The food was delicious, the shows were entertaining (definitely book these in advance). Service was very good everywhere, only ran into a few grumpy people. Can't believe how many people were on the ship! For the most part, everyone was very spread out. The only busy time was sea days at the pool with everyone reserving chairs. There were people of all ages, can't wait to take our kids on the next trip. I had high expectations and they were met.

Best ship we've ever been on!

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We've done around 10 cruises and experienced many great ships. The "Allure of the Seas" is by far the best ship and experience we've ever had. Pictures don't do it justice! The Promenade, Boardwalk, and Central Park are just amazing to see and experience. All of the shows and productions  on board the ship were of the highest order we have seen when compared to any of the previous cruises we've done. The food and service we're 5 stars. We intend to try to book a cruise on the "Allure" if possible again sometime in the fall.

Allue of the Seas 7 day western cruise

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The ship was clean, beautiful and nicely staffed with professional people.  Everything was great until Labadee.  We decided on the zipline excursion and absolutely loved it.  The lunch provided by RC was excellent too.  The only suggestion I have is to make sure signs are posted on the beach concerning coral and broken rocks.  At the end of the zipline there were many postings of no swimming.  We decided to relax after our zipline trip further down the beach close to the Artisian Market. You could actually see the people going by overhead on the zipline. There were plenty of chairs on the beach and people were out in the ocean on rafts relaxing so we thought it was safe to walk in the water.  We saw no warning signs about the coral or no swimming.  Unfortunely, my husband fell and broke his ankle.  I overheard a couple talking behind us as we were getting my husband to a  chair complaining about how rough and almost impossible it was to walk into the water due to coral and rocks.   We had to take my husband  back to the boat in a wheel chair. Luckily, it was at the end of our trip.  Saturday my husband had to spend the whole day in our cabin with his leg propped up and taking pain medicine. I do want to say the medical staff on the ship was great and very helpful. Thankfully, we were with friends and they helped me with pushing my husband in the wheel chair to dinner, and unboarding on Sunday.  Please place warning signs in this area to prevent others from being hurt and ruining the last of their vacation and having to miss work when returning home. Or, better yet clean out the coral in the swimming area.  It was a swimming area because they had ropes indicating where to swim safely.  I would hate to see children run in and become injured as well as any other adults.

Awesome Trip on Allure of the Seas

We would definitely recommend this cruise to others. even though there were 6330 passengers on this cruise it didn't seem crowded with people. Plenty  of activities to do onboard the ship. The shows were excellent. The behind the scenes tour was good and informative.  The ports were clean and the activities we did in port were fun. Since our last time at Labadee, the cruise company has really cleaned the island up.  The food was fantastic.

Awesome cruise overall

I would do it all again. Just read your compass every morning. Don't make too many pre arranged plans and enjoy the moments. Enjoy the main dining more often than not. Try the free restaurants. They were exceptional. Forget shopping and enjoy life. Ride the carousel and drink champagne. The shows are great. Best cruise I have ever been on. Totally indescribable

Beautiful ship. Great pools and activities. Great entertainment. A total mix of population meant that nothing felt very crowded (except Labadee). Good food and accommodating dining room staff. Friendly crew.

We always enjoy Royal Caribbean.  Ship was nice and loved the kid's club.

 

The only thing I would change is that I feel like Royal Caribbean is always trying to sell me something.  As much as we pay for the cruse there should be more fun free activities and I should not always feel like everything on the cruise compass is meant to just make more money off of me.  That aspect is very annoying.  Almost like I am being suckered into buying a time share.  If you need to...bake that into the cruise price and then just let me enjoy myself on the boat with activities that are included and real.

Too Big

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Way too many people on board. Way too few busboys in the buffet areas. Buffets are disgusting, regularly saw people putting food back.

Too few outlets for water.

Every machine has a sign that says you cannot refill your glass due to sanitary reasons but every nitwit who has a coke refill card is jamming their dirty cups into these spots.

The Brazilian steak house sucked. not a real facsimile at very disappointing.

Drink prices run from $7.25/16 oz. Bud Lite, house wine $12/glass, mixed drinks start at $13. Yes any mixed drink starts at $13. Luckily I'm not a big drinker.

While we had a great waiter and busboy for dinner for the late seating they no longer serve everyone appetizers, soups, salads and entrees at the same time. They pretty much get it to you as fast as you order and finish each course so not a very relaxing experience as I have been use to on previous cruises. It was pretty much like eating at a Denny's.

At the casino they allowed one player to continually bully other players at the craps table without asking him to be quiet.

Central Park has a great cafe that during lunch allows you to make your own salad. I wish I would have known this earlier. It is also not nearly as crowded as other places on the ship.

Park Cafe has the best Roast Beef sandwich

We found that eating breakfast on the 3rd deck dining room was much better than battling the crowds at the buffet. We could order off the menu if we desired, and if in a hurry, there was a full buffet to choose from.
