Allure of the Seas

January 2017 - Allure of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

Beautiful Ship

I must say this is a beautiful ship.  However, too many passengers for my taste.  Cabin was comfortable, entertainment was enjoyable and food was OK.  Cabin steward was outstanding.  Staff was excellent.  Main problem was the amount of guests and compromises that brings to the enjoyment of the cruise.

Anthem of the Seas

February 2016 - Anthem of the Seas to Caribbean - Bahamas

Beautiful Ship - Death Defying Trip

If you haven't been living in a cave the past two weeks you probably saw the Anthem of the Seas in the news.  We knew from the start it was going to be a rough trip.  However, it is only by the grace of God that this didn't turn into a disaster dwarfing the Titanic.  We didn't turn into the wind until the ship began listing.  The listing was due to the winds hitting this ship broadside.  It took about thirty minutes to get the ship into position to ride out the storm.  The next eight hours were sheer terror.  Broken glass in the bathroom and items getting tossed around the stateroom.  Even I was tossed from the bathroom door onto the bed across the room.  Slight injury that I chose not to report.  After reaching the coast of Florida it was decided to turn the ship around.  Five days at sea with no stops.  Although it looks like a beautiful ship we never got to explore it  or utilize it's many amenities.  I have cruised out of New York before and have hit rough seas.  Nothing like this.  Sustained winds were 150mph.  Captain himself, in an interview the next day,  mentioned that we had recorded gusts at 180mph!  If you choose to cruise out of New York I would strongly urge you to avoid the winter and the hurricane season (summer and fall).  Guess that leaves just the spring.  As a result we are getting a full refund of the cruise fare and 50% off (based on that fare) for a future cruise taken within the next twelve months.  However, I am getting nothing towards my lost vacation time.  I am only thankful we are still alive.  For a while there I thought the ship was going to capsize.
