April 2015 - 12 Night Transatlantic Eastbound (Ft. Lauderdale To Barcelona) Cruise on Allure of the Seas
Not for me
Had a good time on this ship because I met a number of nice people, The large number of Diamond members were well handled. Cabin steward was excellent. Water show was superb. Windjammer fare standard for the line. MDR menu choices and quality of ingredients below par. Little contact with the sea on this ship. Inside it feels like your local mega shopping mall has sailed off with you inside it. Central Park surprisingly nice, Forward conservatory sort of works. Boardwalk is a waste of space. Rising Tide Bar is a hokey gimmick. (and as a previous reviewer noted the machinery to run makes an appalling noise on deck 3 aft.) Very good program for children and teens. Families will love this ship. Me, not so much.
