7 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Sail Date: March 11, 2012 Ship: Allure of the Seas Cabin Type: Balcony Traveled As: Family (older children) Reviewed: 5 years ago
The ship was very pretty and clean. Most of the staff was friendly and eager to help. The food was not good, especially for the price you pay for the trip. It just seemed like every time you turn around there was a small charge. But mainly the food not being good took its toll on the trip!
Food and Dining
1 out of 5
The food wasnt not that great, especially for the price. The best thing i can say is the grill cheese was great in the Cafe. The dining room everything had a "Campbell golden mushroom" taste on almost all the meat. Just the quality of the food was way below average. As far as the buffet it was ok but food ended up being over cooked and dried out again everything tasted the same. Very disappointed.

Excursion was great once you were there. It was hurry up and wait and traveling to the excursions took up soooo much time so a 6hr excursion to Xel-ha ended up being like maybe 4hrs once you were there. They tell you about the ferry but dont tell you about the bus ride once youre over there. Same thing in Jamaica. VERY SPENDY once you break it down time vs. money. My advice is No excursions and just walk around once youre off the boat.

They were great and friendly. I just wish they extended it out to after 10pm. because there is some activates for Adults but cost extra to leave your child. Six dollars an hour, which isnt much but if you think about how much you spend on everything else kind of stinks. Especially if you wanted to go have one of their pricey drinks. So on the bright side they did save us money by staying in!

Out stateroom guy was great. Customer relations seemed bothered and not eager to help at all.
