Allure of the Seas

November 2016 - Allure of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

Disappointed travelers

Pros

+ Allure of the Seas was a pretty awesome ship - Central Park, Aqua Theater, rock climbing, etc.

+ OceanAria is an awesome show and Mama Mia was fun

+ Very good fitness center

+ Samba Grill was good

 

Cons 

- Windjammer buffet food was subpar quality and selection was not good

- RC is constantly trying to sell you something that is not included in the cruise price

- Shore excursions are overpriced and don't always accurately reflect what the description says

- Norovirus broke out during our cruise and a family member fell victim to it

- The staff in the buffet we're not very friendly or helpful

- Shore excursions were disorganized and not worth the money

Royal Princess

May 2016 - Royal Princess to Europe - Mediterranean

Royal Princess delivers a royal vacation

First time cruising with Princess and overall it was a very enjoyable experience. 

Mini-suite stateroom was good size, had good space, and a very comfortable bed.

Staff at all levels was very nice, very accommodating and interesting to talk with.

Food was good with broad selection at the buffet.

Never felt crowded, even on sailing days. 

Really enjoyed The Voice of the Ocean and Movies Under the Stars.

Stability of the ship was surprisingly excellent, even on rougher sea days.

The ship decor and layout was upscale/elegant in nature and very beautiful, but less fun than Royal Caribbean.

 

The ships amenities and activities cater to a more mature crowd -- over 55. 

The theater was smaller and less impressive than on Royal Caribbean, thus the shows were less extravagant, yet the dancers and singers were talented.

The fitness center was decent but more geared for cardio vs. weight training.

Lotus Spa tried to sell us $300 worth of lotion/oil following our spa service--appaling.

SiteSeekers's Tips

Naples, Italy - Naples itself leaves a lot to be desired and does not have a good reputation for safety. I recommend a tour to the Amalfi Coast or Pompeii if you have not already been.
Royal Princess Royal Princess - Gelateria and International Cafe NOT included in cruise price so prepare to pay extra for a sweet treat. Or go to the buffet's Pastry Shop for a wide selection of sweet treats each lunch and dinner service.
