March 2016 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Allure of the Seas
From a steerage passenger
While overall cruising on the Allure is a great experience it's beginning to feel like there are two classes of passengers. The Viking lounge has always been my favorite place to have a cocktail before dinner while watching the sunset, but now it's a private dining room for the people who are staying in suites. I don't mind that the best seats in the theater are saved for them or that the ice shows front row seats are theirs, or that on Labadee the best beach is fenced off for them, or that the diamond club no longer has the chefs table inside, or that a section of the pool deck is closed off for them, but when you take the best venue on the ship and turn it into an exclusive restaurant for them and only use it at meal times, I believe Royal Caribbean has relegated the rest of us to steerage class.
