The Ultimate Ship

Sail Date: January 23, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We were a little reluctant to take this cruise because of the number of passengers and our age. We were so wrong. There is something for everyone in every age group on this ship. Once we were on it did not seem crowded at all. Never had to wait in line for elevators (24) or buffet lines. This was our 21st cruise on multiple lines and we both said this was our ultiment cruise. The only way we can top is to take Oasis of the Seas next year.

Pros: The layout of ship and the ease to get around and avoidance of crowds even though so many on the ship

Cons: That we had to get off!!!!!! Also having to make reservation for shows but understood why.

Recommends Allure of the Seas? Yes!

As stated before we were a little late trying to get into shows but manage to see all of them with the exception of Chicago which we were not that disappointed after hearing some of the passengers comments.
Ship Quality
Even though new ship they were constantly cleaning all areas.
Food and Dining
We had reservations a couple of night in the Any time dining room but we enjoyed the buffet in Windjammer most of the time. Did eat at Rita's and Giavannis which was great.
Cabin / Stateroom
Had one of the Best Stewards we have ever had
Service and Staff
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
We did get off in St Maarten which is one of our favorite ports. Very pretty area
