if an important reason for going on a cruise is the cuisine   DON T step foot on the Allure.   Food is not served hot   (don't forget they are trying to serve 6000 people at a time)   The fried eggs are like hard boiled eggs but flat not ovoid.   The bread is obviously frozen bread thawed.  Really poor quality sandwich bread, tasteless.  The Premium restaurant Chops serves "dungeness crab and shrimpt cakes.     Lets call it like it is    bread crumbs and a LOT of seasoning    fried in a lot of grease.  This offering is listed as on of the restaurants specialties.     OH    the special doughnut  offerings.   More frozen dough,   really sad.     Rooms were clean and attractive.   Entertainment was excellent, especially their Aqua show.   The shoping area was just like your local mall but onboard.  Ports of call typical.   Get off the ship   travel to the  overpriced junk shops     Different day same junk.      My partner and I have been on many cruises all over the world  and its the age old story   You get what you pay for

Ship Quality
Attractve, certainly not artistically decorate
Food and Dining
Except for Giovanni's table which was an exceptional dining experience If you eat every meal there you will be very happy We found this restaurant on the second day and enjoyed every dinner there for the rest of the trip
Service and Staff there every evening
Aqual show, Chicago wonderful Piano player at the nautical bar was not good and the young latin lady who was the mc for trivia bordered on being rude. I can explain

For example: We found that eating breakfast on the 3rd deck dining room was much better than battling the crowds at the buffet. We could order off the menu if we desired, and if in a hurry, there was a full buffet to choose from.
