This was our second time on a Royal Carribean cruise.  We chose the Allure of the Seas because my daughter wanted to go on the worlds largest cruise ship. This will probably be our last time that we sail with Royal Carribean;

Here are some of the things we liked about the boat;

Beautiful ship/very big

Alot of activities for the kids to do

Entertainment was good

Here are the things we did not like;

Very expensive cruise not worth the money/they cut back on alot of things that used to be standard on other Royal Carribean criuses

Worst food ever/felt like they cut back on quality/had second seating and on lobster night couldn't get more because the galley was closed.Never heard of such a thing/Breakfast in the Main Dinning Room they ran out of white toast.For such a large ship this is unheard of.

Our room was so small.We paid for a Balcony room over looking the ocean.This was the smallest room that we have ever been in on a cruise. There was 4 of us. No space,no closet room,had to live out of our suit cases/Room very dirty,carpet never cleaned,hair in the bathroom not ours

11 o'clock at night everyting died down,only 2 places open to get something to eat.Either pizza at one place or little sandwiches at another.Very poor for after hours/i think we lost so pounds on this cruise

On sea days Zip Line,Flow Rider,and Rock Wall were only opened for certain times.For such a large ship and so many passengers they need to have these things open 10 to 5.They only did this on our last day.

Over all didn't like cruise not worth the money
