Great value, best cruise on RC!!!
Allure of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Review SummaryMy husband and I cruised on the Allure of the Seas for our honeymoon. After going on 4 previous cruises with Royal Caribbean, this was by far the best experience. The ship itself is breathtaking! It was hard to believe the imagination and igenuity that were put into the creation of this vessel--there is an actual park in the middle of the ship, with live plants!!! Amazingly, we had intimate moments, despite the enormity of the ship. Also, if you are into specialty restaurants, it is defintely worth checking out other food options (for a fee). Otherwise, the free food is pretty good, except for the Windjammer Cafe which we detested. Beyond that, the entertainment is fantastic and our cruise director, Ken, was amazing (just be sure to book entertainment before the cruise OR on the 1st day since the popular shows sell out fast). The ports of call were all beautiful, but expensive. Honestly, we enjoyed the ship more than the destinations, but that's because we love to be on the water..And, we were lucky to have fairly calm seas. Overall, this was a great value for our money and we cannot wait to sail again with RC!!!
