May 2016 - Allure of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern
Still some long lines at the windjammer buffet at main dining hours. Food there is fair, nothing to write home about. The cruise line wants to upsell you on specialty restaurants, and does a better job at entertainment shows then the food menu even at the My time dining. Smoking is still a problem, it is not a complete smoking venue, as the casino allow cigars and cigs, the folks on the upper and lower balconies smoke like fiends and no enforcement just warnings etc.
Boarding was great and quick, but off loading was a night mare, standing inline after you number was called was a ridiculous 1 hour. Why call if the lines are that long...all they wanted to do is get everybody off the ship and into the holding point (the building with hundreds of standing folks in long lines and not moving much).
Service was great, the attendants and waiters superb
