Harmony of the Seas

May 2019 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Harmony of the Seas

Allure of the Seas

May 2018 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Allure of the Seas

We just departed. Had a wonderful time on the Allure. I am posting from my opinion, the great and not so great. Boarding was a breeze! Luggage came as expected . Ship is clean and beautiful. Every island was a blast. Cozumel was fun! Senior Frogs was a blast. Costa maya... take a taxi down town to beach. $8 for 4 people. Massages on the beach ..great. $25 for 1 hour. Near the tipsy turtle. Roatan..amazing snorkeling at Banana Rama. The food....definitely not what Royal used to be. Standards have dropped significantly. Dining room, very repetitive. Windjammer..okay. nice variety. Lines tend to be long at breakfast. Great find is the Solarium!! The shows... oceanaria.. outstanding! Comedy great! Blue Planet..... just don't do it! The drink package was great for us. I would recommend if you will enjoy cocktails, speciality coffees and soda. The bartenders are very nice and they certainly do not under pour. Overall the couple we were with made this trip wonderful! I am disappointed over all with RCI and could be the size of ship. They are lacking the small touches that always made them top notch. Deboarding.... heinous. Even with mobile passport. Almost 2 hours in line. In 11 cruises, never had it this way. We are booked on Harmoney next, we will see if the Harmony does better. If not, I am glad we experienced the bigger ships however will probably go back to mid size RCI ship.
