January 2015 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Allure of the Seas
We had a lot of fun on this cruise. There was something to do all day long. We have three girls ages 11-17 and they were busy from late morning (wake up time) to past midnight. My 14 year old wanted the teen area to be available even later (past 1:30 am!) The shows were great too. They made new friends from other countries like Canada & Brazil and also closer to home. At one point I overheard my daughter say, "I would be happy to stay on the boat all day." Meaning she did not feel the need to get off at ports of call. But we had 2 great beach days also. Bahamas was only a half day with a 1:30 pm boarding time that wasn't so great. Also, the ship is so big that it's very hard to find anyone if you don't make a time & place to meet. That is one drawback and it can be a problem if you or your child can't find each other.
