7 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 21, 2014
Ship: Allure of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 9585
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The ship was very noisy and they nickel and dime you for everything. Service is not what I was use to on RCL and the food left a lot to be desired.  Very little space to call your own if you want to be in a quiet zone.  Also, did not like the fact that you have to make reservations to see any show.  Not up to my expectations for a RCL cruise.  I will take the smaller ships anytime.

food in windjammer same every day. Food in dining room not what I would expect from RCL. I think they do this so you will pay at one of their specialty restaurants
