The Allure of the Seas is GORGEOUS. I can't wait to travel on that Oasis class again. The crew is fantastic. Felt very welcome and at home.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
All meals were great, especially if they were at the restaurants. The drinks were exceptional, the Champagne and Martini Bar was the best place for a drink.

Rita's Cantina

4 out of 5

Called "Sabor" on the Allure of the Seas, the food was excellent (although I did not care for the pork tacos), but the menu could have been more ambitious. They ran out of Red Sangria, and the Margaritas were not as good.

Johnny Rockets

3 out of 5

Poorly managed. The wait staff was really stretched out, empty tables remained unclean for long periods of time, a long line would form, even though there were empty tables available. Food was good, the milkshakes were great.

150 Central Park

5 out of 5

One of the finest restaurants I have ever been to. The soups were amazing, the lobster was great, the dessert was to die for, and the ambiance was relaxed and elegant.

Solarium Bar

4 out of 5

Great drinks.

Boleros Lounge

5 out of 5

Drinks were amazing, and the entertainers were top notch. If you want to dance and party to Latin music, this is your spot. Don't have to be Hispanic to enjoy, everybody is welcome!

Giovanni's Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar

The dinner was excellent, but 150 Park is a much better restaurant.

Everyone was exceptional, professional, courteous, welcoming and friendly. Not a single complaint. Felt pampered and genuinely liked by all personnel.

Ship Quality

LOVED the ship's design. The cleanliness was exceptional. Spotless.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Loved the view from the balcony (Aqua Theater plus ocean back view). The cabin was small, but good enough for 2 people.

Ship tip

Study the floor plan. Sample all the restaurants/bars. No need to go to the Windjammer for breakfast and lunch, as these are offered at multiple spots throughout the vessel.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

4 out of 5

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

The Dutch side of the island is faring much better than the French side. However, the beach was exceptional.
