My husband and I have been on more than 30 cruises. Royal Caribbean is our choice. We just completed a 7 day western Caribbean cruise. We prefer a smaller ship, but choose the allure and the Oasis because we live near port everglades. The Allure is a beautiful ship. It would be a better experience for repeat passengers if Royal Caribbean changed the two main shows. How many times should you have to see Chicago and Blue Planet?? The aqua show, Ice shows, comedy club are great. We really enjoyed Giovanni's table............food and service there were perfect. Our room attendant for our 14 th deck balcony cabin was wonderful.
