Review summary

We really enjoyed this trip and plan to continue cruising with Royal Caribbean. The Oasis class ships are just amazing.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
We waited just a few min in the line and checked in with no problems. It's amazing that RC can make it look easy getting that many people on on board.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food and staff in both the Windjammer and the main dining room were both excellent.

Globe and Atlas Pub

5 out of 5

We had a great time exploring different bourbons and getting to know the great bartenders in the pub.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We only used the Jacuzzi's and didn't get in the pools. The only problem was we tried to stick to the adult only Jacuzzi's and there were constantly kids in there. It was always the parents bringing them but RC needs to enforce the policy.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
The shows were very entertaining and the performers were awesome. We really enjoyed Mam Mia, it was far better than Cats on our last cruise. The ice dancers were great as were the performers in the water show.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The wait staff was always very polite and helpful. Our room was always very clean and the stewards were always super nice.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
LOVE this ship design. The Allure was very clean and well maintained but you can tell it's getting to be time for a refurbishment.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Our Cabin was nice. Just enough room and well laid out. There is one glaring problem though, almost NO outlets. I usually bring an extension cord but took it out of my bag at some point and forgot to put it back in and I regretted it the whole trip.

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

5 out of 5

Nassau, Bahamas

5 out of 5
We mostly walked around and shopped. We took a local taxi for a short tour, everyone was nice.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

5 out of 5
We took an excursion that went up to the top of the hills and some other nice photo spots. We also went over to the beach and it was very nice.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

5 out of 5
We took an excursion that went to Brimstone fort and it was very interesting. Great place for photos and to learn some history.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Just as when we boarding RC made it look fairly easy to get a huge number of ppl off the boat fairly quickly.
