the ship was OK, but the excursions were really bad. I had a terrible experience at departure.  I was not permitted to disembark the ship because I owed money.  Apparently, my credit card put a limit on the amount that i could charge.  No one anywhere could explain to me the problem.  I had to use another credit card to pay the bill, and I still do not know the answer to the problem.

The ship itself is wonderful. The Entertainment was top notch and being able to reserve a seat is the best part. Staff was excellent!

Wish the comedians would have changed their routine once or twice, it was the same all week. Also, that more towel stations were open all the time , not just one.

ROYAL C has put profit before quality

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The zipline, climbing wall, and flowrider were great if you like to stand in long lines.  The open hours for these activities were way to short so everyone that wanted to use them was crammed into lines when they were open.  The free dining was the same thing.  Breakfast ended at 10:30am so at 10am the line was long, the food was picked over, and no available seating.  The selection of fresh fruit was terrible.  The dinner quality also slipping.  Some entres good, not great.  Other entres were terrible.

Fantastic Spring Break!

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

We stayed in a 2 bedroom Aquatheater Suite and had the "Star Class" included with our stateroom (We will always book without this extra amenities)! This meant that we had a "Genie" assigned to us during our entire stay (Daniel was amazing, discreet, and did a fantastic job for us). This Genie took care of making reservations to everything we wanted to do and see on the ship! We had early embarkation, all access to the Coastal Kitchen (Star and Sky class only), dining at all specialty restaurants, premium drink package (21 and over), reserved seating at every entertainment venues, complementary VOOM (High Speed Internet), complimentary gratuity, priority disembarkation at certain ports, deluxe linens and bath products. We had a fairly early flight on our way back home and Daniel made sure we were of the ship and through custom before 7:30am! This trip was an experience of a lifetime... The excursions we picked were ok, I think we will be handpicking the different places we want to visit, or activities we want to do on our own, next cruise.

An over crowded cruise ship

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

After 5 cruises, this was the most expensive, and the least value for your money. Long line-ups for food and not enough seating after you got your food in Marketplace. Had to pay extra for Johnny Rockets Hamburger joint. Really cheap!!! Couldn't see Mama Mia due to sold out and only played for 3 days. Not enough lounge chairs due to 1600 kids on board. Food was good in Icom restaurant but long waiting time to get in. Very limited food choices after 9:00 P.M. Drinks were over priced compared to my previous cruises. A lack of free drinks at night. Fruit punch and lemonade available until 6:00 PM then only coffee, tea, or water after. Picture taking everywhere on board all the time was all a money generating theme for Royal Caribbean Cruise Ships.

Spring Break 2017

The Allure of the Seas ship is amazing.  It's truly a moving city.  The Boardwalk, Central Park, the pools and all that goes with them are fun and made for a fun week at sea.  We found some of the dining room food and service to be less than other cruises.  We did My Time dining which may have affected the service side, but the food I think would've been the same for everyone.  The staff looked as though they were hustling ALL the time, but we still could not get through a meal in an hour or less and forget about getting drinks during dinner.  We would wait about 20-30 min for drinks.  The food was hit or miss.  We found ourselves going to Wind Jammers more often than prior cruises because it was quicker and the food was about the same.  Guest Services was probably the only reliable staff on the ship.  Our room porter was again, working very hard, but he did not engage with us until he had a problem with something.  Otherwise, we never say him and he barely spoke to us.  Bartenders were seemingly very busy every time we tried to get a drink and they seemed "put off" by us asking for service.  One of the bars by the pool was more casual and friendly but the kids had the drink package and the bartenders were not at all interested in filling up their sodas.  All in all the ship was great, but for me it was a one time trip on this ship.  I'll explore other ones to get better service and better food on future trips.  I'm sure everyone's experience is different so perhaps going on the ship when it's not spring break would help?  Anyway, I'd recommend the ship to others but it wasn't for me to return to on future cruises.

Amazing Trip

It was a wonderful trip.  I could not have asked for a better way to spend our 20th anniversary! Specialty restaurants were amazing and Schooners Bar was the best!

We enjoyed Cozumel and Jamaica!  I would highly recommend this cruise to anyone.

Great Ship and Cruise

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Allure of the Seas is a huge ship with lots to do onboard.  Their computer systems were having some issues during our cruise.  Other than that everything was really good.  The only thing that would have made this cruise better is if parents were better at managing their children.

Was a fun vacation

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

The ship was excellent.  The entertainment was great.  The only thing that frustrated me was that there should be more locations to get ice cream.  And there's not enough ways to get drinks of just water or juice if you are not on a beverage plan. I was really thirsty all week and with a family of 8, the drink plans were out of the question.

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.
