June 2015 - Allure of the Seas to Europe - Western Mediterranean
Loved the cruise. However, for us, it was about the itinerary. We would have done this cruise on the Majesty of the Seas. However, it was a great ship, and not once during the week could I tell the ship was moving unless I was watching the waves go by. Entertainment was top notch. Blue Planet, the Aqua Show and Ice Show were amazing. Dining Room food was very good, but not as imaginative as in the past. Several menu items repeated during the 7 days. I would have to say that the sirloin steak I ordered was a bit spongy, and not close to what you would get in Middle America. All 6 of our tablemates visited on the the premium dining rooms, and all came back somewhat unimpressed. For us, it really wasn't about the food. We had a wonderful time. The Captain (Captain Johnny) was the most engaging Captain I have every been around. It seemed as if he truly cared about his team, and really an incredible representation of the RCCL brand. We could completely do this cruise again.
