Even though there are 6000+ passengers they do a good job of making the ship not feel crowded for the most part. The only issue was getting a chair by the pool, or solarium on sea days. People seem to hold chais by putting towels on them very early even though you're not supposed to do that. Chairs do start opening up around 3pm, you have to get very lucky to get one before that unless you go up early. There are other places to sit on the deck, just not by the pool.
If you can afford a suite upgrade Coastal Kitchen is an amazing place to eat,
Take advantage of the gym and other amenities, so many memories to be made! You would need a full month to experience it all! No time to be board on the ship!
Try to explore the whole boat! Lots to offer!
You will definitely have to sail Allure again to get all there is to do on the ship!
Wait until dry dock is completed before going on this cruise
Know yourself and how much you'll realistically drink on your trip. If you're looking to be fall down inebriated the entire trip then the deluxe drink package is for you. Keep in mind you must wait five to fifteen minutes in between drinks (this is what they don't tell you in the fine print).
No need for speciality dinning
Bring your walking shoes, you do walk a lot.
Take time to read thru the Compass first day so you get the feel of how the activities are set up-it was different then we’ve had before and felt it a little confusing!
Get on board early so you can check out the layout of the ship
Book shows before boarding the ship
Can be as busy or relaxed as you want to be.

Go to the main dining room!
Make time to explore and enjoy the ship.
