That’s totally understandable

I’m thinking 150 Central Park. I’m a family of 5, really don’t wanna spend the extra money if I don’t have to

This time we’re going to try the Brazilian style steak house as well as the sushi place—that will be a tough one for me, but my wife really likes it. You may want to give one of the places a shot just to see.

Eplan it really depends on your tastes and the experience you want. My wife and I have cruised many times to include the Oasis. We found the main dinning room service and food were excellent. We ate at the steak house one night and it was nice.

Had anyone been on this ship before? This is my first cruise period. Is it worth paying to go dine at other restaurants, or just stick to the main dining room?

Poker chips!

VladColeman

Anyone play poker on the Allure of the seas? Do they give u poker chips or is it a digital screen?

Going on the Allure on Oct 28. This will be my 5th cruise, but first out of Fort Lauderdale. Any tips on the port? Also considering getting the photo package, it is just my boyfriend and I going. Is it worth it? Should I do the prints or the digital option? Just can’t decide. I always purchase a few photos but I’m not sure if I would purchase $250 worth. Thank you!

Yea originally they asked me if I just wanted to move to an ocean view then I asked about the balcony and they updated the price

otgracing17

Sep 08, 2018 - 8:57 pm

Well I guess we will bring our costumes along! Can't wait!!!

madrace87

Sep 06, 2018 - 11:20 am

My wife and I are wondering how many people will dress up. We love Halloween and are thinking about bringing a costume as well. We will be on the same cruise!

islandcruiser14

Sep 06, 2018 - 7:40 am

Cool! Glad to hear it!

connie1958

I always dress in costume for Halloween on the RC ships. Always a fun day.

islandcruiser14

Sep 05, 2018 - 1:17 pm

So...here's a question for everyone... Are any of you planning on costumes for Halloween and/or decorating your cabin doors/interior balconies? We had a blast on the Freedom of the Seas, 2 years ago with costumes and decorating our door! The whole ship was decorated and everyone was in a festive spirit! They even had a huge costume parade and party down the Royal Promenade. Lmk what you're all thinking, please. Thanks and Happy Hump Day!🤪

We were offered waitlist for an upgrade for Suites but they didn’t include a price. They just asked if we wanted to be placed on a list. Good Luck!!!🍀

61 days, WELCOME ABOARD, very excited-airport couldn’t come soon enough because that means tequila and OJ to start the relaxation. 🛳🎉🍷☀️🍸🥂.

VladColeman

Aug 26, 2018 - 10:58 am

Got an email to be put on a waitlist for an upgrade to an oceanview for around $250. Anyone get an email for balcony upgrade waitlists? If so how much did it say?

TruTrojan

Aug 22, 2018 - 6:42 pm

I am SO ready for this cruise!

CruiseChaser

Aug 22, 2018 - 5:16 pm

We were there in May and the French side was still in pretty bad shape. Dutch side rebounding nicely.

islandcruiser14

Aug 21, 2018 - 2:56 pm

We were on the Freedom of the Seas 2 years ago for Halloween and nearly everyone dressed in a costume...myself included. It was a blast! Whole ship was decorated, too!

islandcruiser14

Aug 21, 2018 - 2:53 pm

Congratulations!

islandcruiser14

Aug 21, 2018 - 2:51 pm

So...what are the costumes? What were you last time?

islandcruiser14

Aug 21, 2018 - 2:49 pm

Dude! It's amazing! I love Royal Caribbean's ships!

I recommend rolling any items that wrinkle easily and pack Downy Wrinkle Release.

jenlwolff

Unfortunately, no, they’re not.

Are clothes steamers allowed?

gifink

Aug 01, 2018 - 6:05 pm

In March it was good. Still a work in progress, but still very nice. A lot open, still some places closed. Some will never come back.

TruTrojan

If you tap on the St Maarten pic for this cruise you’ll see up to date postings for the port

LoveToCruise73

Has anyone been to St Maarten since the hurricane? What condition is it in? Thinking of a beach excursion while we’re there

TruTrojan

Jul 20, 2018 - 5:40 pm

Just got off the RCI site and I still couldn’t book any shows.

gifink

Jul 20, 2018 - 2:21 pm

Entertainment is open in the cruise planner. If you have not cruised on an Oasis class ship before, know that you should make reservations for the shows. It does not cost and you can change times later. If you do not have reservations you will be puy into the "standby" line and will only get in about 10 minutes before the show starts. Seats will be limited.

TruTrojan

Have been to Great Bay Beach in the past and had a great time time. Usually do some shopping, and then eat and drink at an establishment along the boardwalk and then rent chairs on the beach. Good times! 😀

LoveToCruise73

Jul 12, 2018 - 3:11 pm

Buccaneer Beach or Great Bay Beach in St Maarten, which would you recommend?

TruTrojan

Jun 08, 2018 - 6:38 pm

Thank you

gifink

Jun 04, 2018 - 11:36 pm

Be sure to make show reservations when they open up. I didn't like that idea first time we cruise an Oasis class ship, but found it to be helpful since there is so much to do on the ship. Our preferred specialty restaurant is Chops.

gifink

Jun 04, 2018 - 11:32 pm

Should be everyone on this thread since it is posted in the October 28 Allure forum. This would include us.

gifink

Jun 04, 2018 - 11:30 pm

Yes, but it seems to be very rare. Most Royal cruises truly do cruise at capacity.

gifink

Jun 04, 2018 - 11:20 pm

No they do not. But you can book onboard and get some perks. You get reduced deposit and extra OBC (if your booked cruise is at least 6 months out).

Does RCI offer certificates towards future cruises if you book another cruise while on board? Carnival use to sell the certificates at a 50% discount

TruTrojan

Apr 04, 2018 - 8:59 pm

Sailed Oasis and my wife and I were amazed at how well things were done. Never really encountered a crowd with the exception of the flow rider. Main dining was the best service we ever received.

TruTrojan

Apr 04, 2018 - 8:56 pm

Some folks go all out and others just go, Carnival goes way out

Hello, we usually cruise with Carnival, this will be our first time on Royal. Question, on Carnival when it gets closer to cruising time they sometimes call u to give a nice discount to upgrade your room. Do they do this on Royal?

LoveToCruise73
