You can't help but be impressed with the ship.  It is truly awesome. 

Unfortunately, the crowds detracted from the experience.  The number of guests on board overwhelmed the ship's facilities, as extensive as they were.  The pools were so unbelievably crowded that even the thought of getting into them was revolting. The wait for the elevators (always packed like sardine tins) was annoying and the dining rooms were so crammed with guests they resembled chicken farms.  

If you enjoy Manhattan at rush hour, you're going to love the Allure of the Seas.
