The "Allure" is an amazing ship. It was hard to imagine that it actually was a ship cruising through the water and not a city. It is huge, but the interactive signage kept us from getting lost. Central Park is just beautiful, and the Promenade and Boardwalk were attractive and interesting places.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was excellent. It was prepared well and the presentation was very appealing.

Oceanaria and Blue Planet were wonderful shows. We chose not to attend "Chicago" because of the "R" rating. We enjoyed Jazz on 4 but did not attend the Comedy Shows because of the "blue" humor.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The wait staff in the dining room were outstanding! Our stateroom attendant was very helpful and attended to all of our needs. Even the maintenance personnel responded to our request very quickly.

We really liked Cozumel seven years ago. However, the vendors have become much more aggressive since that time which made it very difficult to shop. The prices have gone up significantly. We really enjoyed our experience at Poncho's Backyard. The food was very good, the waiters were very friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was relaxing and comfortable - a welcome change from the walk down the street.

Every activity costs extra and the vendors were so aggressive that it made our family uncomfortable to walk to the beach.

Not a lot to do now. This area is still under development and it is difficulty to rate.

Pros: The food and Oceanaria

Cons: The Ports of Call
