Allure of the Seas is a wonderfully manufactured ship with a lot of distinctive features (e.g. Promenade, Boardwalk/Aqua theater, Central Park,various beautiful lounges, various pools, jetted tubs, sport activities, and countless restaurants) that set it apart from other ships I've been on. It also offers numerous great shows, tons of live music and entertaniment. However, the eating arrangments and stateroom accomodations that it provides are somewhat inferior to those usually offered on other ships (e.g. Carnival Liberty/ valor). The main hall (Windjammer) for breakfast and lunch is usually very crowded with inadequate space to seat their guests. Many people roam the food court in search of an available seat. The meal choices are also more limited. It does not offer guests the option of having their food freshly made for order by cooks. The staterooms are also smaller, and crammed together, as if they were built to maximize the amount ofpeople they can packed in the ship. All and all, it's a great ship built with an eye for maximizing profits for Royal Caribbean.

Pros: Plenty of fun activities for guests

Cons: Long lines to see the shows
