The Allure is a truly amazing ship, with a lot of things to do on it. It will take a couple of days to fully explore the ship. However, in focusing on the big things, they seemed to have overlooked the little stuff. The service quality was not consistent, with many crew members not engaging with guests, preferring to communicate amongst themselves in their native language. The food was also uneven. The quality of entrees in the main dining room were not consistently good, although there were moments. The service quality in there was also not ver good. We were on My Time Dining, which didn't allow us to develop a relationship with a server as we had on past cruises. However, the Giovanni's Table experience was amazing. The ports in the Eastern Caribbean were also not very inspiring. This cruise got 4 stars because of the sheer number of things to do on the ship.

Not enough time to get out of Nassau. The town felt like Tijuana.

Emerald Beach was a fun destination off the beaten path.

The jeep and boat tour was fun but the island is full of poverty.
