There really isn't much to complain about after a trip aboard the Allure of the Seas. We were there for our honeymoon and had a fantastic time! It's the biggest cruise ship in the world and they've really filled it to the brim with things to do. It's easy to spend a fair amount of extra cash if you like excursions, drinks, specialty restaurants, etc. but you could easily spend no money all week and still have a great time.

Labadee is really just a beach day - do NOT visit the shopping areas, the things for sale are lousy and the locals are pretty shady/pushy individuals. Falmouth is in a pretty poor area of Jamaica, though the port has been built up with very touristy shops which are great for souvenirs and duty free shopping. If you want to venture into Jamaica we'd really recommend an excursion just to stay safe. Chukka operates several tours and did a really nice job with our 'Taste of Jamaica' tour, which had great Jamaican food and visited the Good Hope Great House atop a peak with a really great view of the area. Snorkeling in Cozumel is really great. We went on the Three Reef tour which was really nice for first time snorkellers and families, was well-guided, and went to three different spots to show us a nice variety of fish/reefs.

Pros: Fantastic entertainment\, food\, service\, accommodations

Cons: Labadee/Falmouth can be underwhelming (depending on your preferences)
