Allure of the Seas

September 2014 - Allure of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

Seven days of complete relaxation

First of all I liked this cruise just because of the ship which was beautiful. And clean. My stateroom lady kept my room very clean. I was on deck 12 room 12280 on the recent cruise to the Caribbean from Sept. 7 to 14th. Unfortunately, I didn't get her name. But you can figure it out I hope. Anyway, I loved the ship. One little critique: it was a little too big! :) But then again, all that walking probably helped keep my weight gain down! :)

The dining room was lovely and the food was good. Our waiters, Norman and Jovach (Hope I spelled his name correctly) were the best. They were right on everything, like filling one's water glass etc., without being intrusive. So I give them both the highest marks. Plus they were friendly and Norman's recommendations were always very good.

Overall it was a lovely week and I was a little envious of those passengers who were staying on for another week. Maybe next time we'll do that when we do the southern Caribbean! Sincerely, Natalie R. Cornell (John's wife.) PS OK, I see you want a comparison to other cruises. We've had four other ones: we crossed the Atlantic in the QEII and I have to say that ship was also wonderful, we had a Royal Caribbean cruise years ago and I remember it as being nice, but I can't recall anything specifically at this point, we took a cruise on a Greek ship when we visited Greece and that was not nearly as nice, although it was pleasant but really can't compare to a Royal Caribbean cruise, (but the waiters did come marching in the last night carrying Baked Alaska and that was impressive) and we took a Holland America cruise to Quebec. I liked this cruise better.

nrcornell's Tips

Cozumel, Mexico - Once again we bought souveniers and headed back to the ship. I did have a hilarious moment when one of the merchants wrote on his building that his prices were better than Wal Mart, which I'm sure they were, and that broken English was spoken here, Perfect Spanish was spoken here. For some reason I thought that was hysterical and he and I shared a good laugh. The people at all the ports were very friendly.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island) - Like I said, the Caribbean offers only so much. We used to have a condo at Crescent Beach so I'm afraid I wasn't that impressed with the beach, but I'm sure it was great for the Caribbean. I did notice the zip line and my husband and I did that later in the week on the ship and it was really fun! Plus now I can brag to my four grandsons that Grandma did the zip line. :) Ok, back to Labadee, it was fine. I read my book under a palm tree. What more can one ask for?
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida - We live in Florida so we just came down, parked our car and got on the ship. But years ago I lived in Lauderdale and there are wonderful things to do in Lauderdale.
Allure of the Seas Allure of the Seas - The machines in the Casino don't pay very well, but I just looked at it as my twenty dollars gave me two hours of enjoyment--not the slots, the Poker machines. Those slots take your money too quickly! :) But then maybe that's how all Casinos are. I don't know.
