August 2014 - Allure of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern
This is the second time that we cruised on the Allure of the Seas. It was wonderful. Our cabin was perfect. The food was outstanding and bountiful. We booked all the shows and the performances were once again terrific. There was always a variety of things to do on this gorgeous ship at any given time, and we tried to fit most of that in. I enjoyed a wonderful head to toe Swedish massage at the Spa. I especially liked the evening Piano Bar entertainer at the Schooner Bar. Captain Johnny was very personable and my husband got a real "kick" out of his playing a musical instrument on the Promenade Deck. In spite of all the people, elevator waits were not very long. It was a bit crowded at the Solarium and therefore difficult to find a shaded area. We would have really enjoyed taking a tour of the ship, but the cost was prohibitive. I felt that we were bombarded with sales offers for a variety of items. ( Messages left on phone,at our door) I had a voucher issue that took a few days to resolve, but Guest Services went "above and beyond" and finally credited our account so that we were very pleased. All in all, this cruise was extraordinary and we prefer this cruise line to Norwegian and Carnival.
