Wonderful Thanksgiving Cruise

Sail Date: November 20, 2011

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship is beautiful and spacious with plenty of activities to keep 6,000 passengers from crowding up in public areas. The crew was attentive, friendly and helpful. Scheduling of shows, public events, and main dining was flawless and allowed passengers to do as much or as little as they wanted.

Pros: The entertainment selection and quality of entertainment was great.

Cons: The itinerary.

Recommends Allure of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship was immaculate, nicely decorated (large Holiday Tree was put up on the Promenade deck the day after Thanksgiving, and it was gorgeous).
Food and Dining
We chose "My Time Dining" and loved it. This is the first cruise we've eaten in the Main Dining Room most nights. We went to Specialty Restaurant "Giovanis Table" one night and really enjoyed that as well. Food and service was excellent.
Cabin / Stateroom
The cabin was clean and had plenty of storage, and quite a few little things that really made a difference, like automatic nightlight in the bathroom, and swivel/multi-plug electrical outlet.
Service and Staff
The variety and quality of shows was the best we've seen out of 16 cruises we've taken so far. You had to reserve in advance to ensure you were able to see all the shows you wanted to, but we liked being able to have everything done prior to boarding the ship.
