Allure of the Seas

August 2016 - Allure of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

Allure of the Seas - Early September Voyage

The ship is huge. There is plenty to see and do on board. Everything is super clean and well maintained. The crew was very polite and always smiling and helpful. The buffet is very good and interesting.

 

Draw Backs: The pools are over crowded when at sea, nearly shoulder to shoulder at times. My wife and I are not big alcohol drinkers so we take the soda package. There are way too few soda machines on board, this is my second cruise with Royal and I boarded expecting issues at getting soda refills. Many times there were long lines at the soda machine/s and quite often one of the few machines would not be working. You can refill at any bar, but your soda refill choice is limited. The few icy alcohol drinks that we did purchase at the bars were very-very expensive plus tips.

 

The specialty restaurants were OK, but honestly not worth the added cost. I ate 5 of our 7 nights in the specialties and the value was just not there. I will save that money on my next cruise.

Freedom of the Seas

September 2014 - Freedom of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

Great Trip

The ship is very clean and well kept. In general the staff is super. The food was very good. We used the advanced purchase soda option, we do not drink alcohol. There could be more soda machines on board for such a monster ship we only located (4) machines. You can refill at any bar, but the machines are better. The bartenders also were not very friendly about refills. There is also an annoying refill time limit between refills, the machines read the cup when you fill your cup and then you have to wait until you can refill.The Windjammer is terrific for breakfast and lunch.

 

Overall it was a great experience!

MMPIERCY's Tips

Freedom of the Seas Freedom of the Seas - If you are a first time cruisers as we were. Ask all the questions that you can advance and ask anyone that you meet on board for advice. Also we used the $20.00 per bag valet to send your bags from the boat to the airport directly.
