Adventure of the Seas

February 2017 - Adventure of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern

Fun Family Outing

If the most important parts of the cruise are the port's and the service, then this is the cruise for you.  First, the pros:

 

1.  Service.  This ship is smaller than the Oasis class, and I believe the employees are less stressed out and better able to serve guests.  Dining room, room attendants, guest services, windjammer, pool area.... very friendly and helpful.

 

2.  Not crowded.  Yes, the Royal Promenade gets crowded for 70s night, but this ship never seemed crowded.  I never waited at the buffet or dining room.  Embarking and disembarking were organized.  Elevators and poolside were very manageable.  

 

3.  The Port's.  They were great.  My favorite was Aruba with it's beaches.

 

4.  The Activities.  We enjoyed the  flow rider, rock climbing, the 2 waterslides, mini golf, volleyball, dodgeball, basketball, trivia contests.  Lots of fun.

 

Now, the cons:

 

1.  Entertainment.  The ice show was good.  The hypnotist show was good. The entertainment director, Elvis, was excellent.  The other musicals were boring.  There was one night that didn't have a show.  They played a movie instead....the same movie they played at poolside!

 

2.  Kids program.  They didn't staff this area well, and it looked very depressing whenever I walked by.  I didn't want to leave my kids there.

 

The food was not great, but it was good.  The Allure had better food.

 

Overall,  me and my family were very happy with this cruise.

Allure of the Seas

August 2016 - Allure of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

First time Cruise

I had high expectations for this cruise, and I was not disappointed.  Embarking and disembarking were very busy, but organized and efficient.  I did not receive my bags until 9pm, but I had a carry-on with a change of clothes.  

 

  Food: Very good.  The windjammer buffet had a great selection for breakfast and lunch.  I didn't eat dinner there, but I'm sure dinner is good, too.  I enjoyed the Park Cafe, the solarium bistro, and cafe promenade.  The wipeout cafe and Sorrento pizza were so-so.  The hot dog place on the boardwalk was a pleasant surprise, but you need to ask them for water or iced tea.

 

The dining room was Excellent!  The food was great, the service was great, the atmosphere was great.  It was great!!!  We had breakfast there, also.  The food was good, but the windjammer may be more convenient.

 

Too crowded: This is my only complaint.  This was my first cruise, so I don't know if this is the norm.  The elevators were slow and crowded, the pool was crowded, guests would sometimes be inconsiderate with the deck chairs or not making space for extra seats at the shows.

 

  The shows were very well done; many onboard activities.  The excursions were also well done.

 

I'm looking forward to my next cruise!
