August 2015 - Allure of the Seas to Europe - Western Mediterranean
My wife and I just completed our European cruise on August 20th, 2015. We had a great time! The Allure of the Seas is a huge ship with over 5,000 guests but it never seemed crowded. The food was the best that we have ever experienced on a cruise. Now, we did eat in the dining room only 1 time and it was good, but the other nights we ate at the specialty restaurants - Giovanni's, Sabor, Chops Grill, and 150 Central Park - and they were outstanding!
The ports of call were very fun as well. We did tours through Delta Vacations for Naples, Mallorca, and Marseille and were very pleased with them. We did a Royal Caribbean excursion to Florence and that was wonderful as well.
This is a great way to get a taste of Europe and we will likely go and do it again. Very highly recommend.
