Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 12241

While overall cruising on the Allure is a great experience it's beginning to feel like there are two classes of passengers.  The Viking lounge has always been my favorite place to have a cocktail before dinner while watching the sunset, but now it's a private dining room for the people who are staying in suites. I don't mind that the best seats in the theater are saved for them or that the ice shows front row seats are theirs, or that on Labadee the best beach is fenced off for them, or that the diamond club no longer has the chefs table inside, or that a section of the pool deck is closed off for them,  but when you take the best venue on the ship and turn it into an exclusive restaurant for them and only use it at meal times, I believe Royal Caribbean has relegated the rest of us to steerage class.

Cabin met our expectations and Desiree was an excellent attendant.

Ship Tip

The Vintages wine bar has not only a second list of high end wines but if you get to know the wine tenders you can find some outstanding bottles that are not on any list. Had a $350 wine for $175 and an excellent Barolo for $60. If you get a 2 for 1 credit on your card make sure you try the Camus

Way too expensive, one zip line trip is $100

Don't wait in line for the taxi, go across the street to the shopping center, in the back is a taxi area with no one waiting, save yourself at least on hour
