August 2016 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Allure of the Seas
We are a family of 4 adults [2 boys in mid-20's] and this is our 4th cruise. NEVER have had any problems. Service & weather always perfect! I booked w/ Cheap Cruises for myself & husband [b/c gratuities were included]. Booked directly w/ RC for boys room [b/c they booked earlier]. Linking reservations together was a piece of cake. We reserved a show each night. Tip: there are always 2 lines to the shows, [even though they don't have signs] but 1 line is for reserved & other is for waiting. If you reserved, don't make mistake & wait in line like we did the 1st time. I recommend buying water package so you always have water in room. I try to drink water & was in need of water all the time. Also bring some w/you on the islands. Beer/wine package turned out to be worth the $300. Many pools but small. Cant swim, only bop around. Read daily "Compass" that housekeeping puts in your room. Soooo much to do. Let photographers take pictures, no obligation to buy but you're sure to find many you'll like. If you like quiet, spend time on Solarium deck and in Central Park. Giovanni's was delicious but no need to spend for other restaurants. Main dining rooms have delicious foods. Make friends with your waiter. You'll get all you want and more. But do give them extra tip at end. They deserve it. Cheap Cruises was great to work with. Bon Voyage!!
