Allure of the Seas March 6, 2016

Magnificent ship! We really enjoyed Central Park, the Boardwalk, and the rest of ship. Spent most of our time during the day in the Solarium-adult section, and found it to be just to our liking. Participated in all of the activities-flow rider, rock climbing, zip line, and ice skating. The comedy shows, ship entertainment was  very well done. We really liked the Aqua shows, and reservations ahead of time do make a difference with over 5,000 passengers.  The dining experience and food did not disappoint.  Best (quickest) boarding experience we have ever add-close to 20 cruises now.

jamestd's Tips

Roseau, Dominica - Another Cruises Only booked trip- snorkeling, botanical gardens, city overlook, and travel to two waterfalls-swimming up the gorge was great to get to the hidden waterfall, and then the double falls was very good- would recommend this excursion to everyone.
Tortola, British Virgin Islands - Take the island taxi to the beach- half the ship's price and you go back when you want to-not ship mandated length of stay.
Basseterre, St. Kitts - Snorkeled down past the "Strip". Reef was great, took little speedboats to get to the reef-again-not a ship excursion-through Cruises Only website. Just the four of us-did as we pleased. Ate lunch at one of the restaurants on the strip-just remember-"island time" on the service, but the wait was well worth it.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten - Cruises only excursion-snorkel and catamaran ride to beach. Snorkel trip was only fair here-all underwater staged, but after the natural reefs at the others would be a comedown. Sailed up to Mullet Bay, was able to stop at Maho Bay and watch the planes come in /take off-quite a treat for some of our family who had only seen photos from our past stays on the island.
St. John's, Antigua - Another Cruises Only excursion- kayak/snorkel trip. Saw different fish/formations on the reef, all snorkeling trips were different, which made it worthwhile-not the same old sights at every port.
Nassau, Bahamas - We went to an offsite resort, took the local bus service which was very entertaining -in a good way! Don't be afraid to venture outside of downtown as we have always had great experiences.
Majesty of the Seas Majesty of the Seas - Be prepared to relax as this ship doesn't have the activities of our previous ship- Allure of the Seas, but this is exactly what we wanted.
