Why are so many disappointed with this ship

Our friends sailed on the allure and said it was a disappointment. Has anyone else found this ship to be like this, just a note they have been on more than 15 ships.

Some people prefer the smaller ships to the floating resorts.

Although they didn't care for it, others love it.

It all comes down to what would you like in your cruise?

In a lot of cases opinion will depend upon pre-conceived expectations. Those that go in with certain expectations will usually end up disappointed where as those without expectations are rarely disappointed.

Some will love a ship some not so much. Go to the reviews and read several of them. You can read reviews from people on the same cruise and get completely different views. I’ve read reviews from cruises I have been on and wondered if they were on the same ship I was.

Some people do love smaller ships some large i love them allLove

What was it about the ship that your friends were disappointed in?

We prefer the smaller vessels for a variety of reasons. There are a few features on the giants I like, however, don't think we will book one anymore, mainly due my concern that the safety procedures on board are no longer commensurate with the ever expanding size and huge volume of guests.

You ask about RCI's Oasis Class, specifically, the Allure of the Seas. If I were to book one of the Oasis Class, I would look at the reviews. They are pretty good. For instance, Cruise Line has 1329 guests who rate the Allure as Excellent to Good, while 308 rate it as average and 105 rate it poor or terrible. C.C. guests are 1787 Excellent to Good, 316 average and 179 poor or terrible. Those ratings are not too shabby. Obviously a lot of voyagers do not agree with your friends

To each their own. Monique and I have discussed the Oasis Class ships, like the Allure. It would be a case of the ship would be the destination instead of the ports of call. We, personally, prefer the smaller ships, but those I know who have sailed on these behemoths usually are 50/50 with their impressions of the ships. So, I am not surprised by some of the reviews..

Maybe I missed something, but which ship are we talking about here?

RCCL Allure of the Seas

Oh OK I didn't see a tag besides Royal Caribbean.
