This was our 30 something cruise, 4th of Royal Caribbean, and 1st on an Oasis Class ship. We cruise out of Miami 12/2 – 12/9. We had an ocean balcony cabin: 11536 Before this cruise I had always avoided the Oasis Class ships because I was worried about the number of passenger and crowd control. I would not have booked this cruise but thanks to my gambling hobby, this was a free cruise for us, so I figured what the heck. My worry regarding crowd control was unwarranted. Royal Caribbean knows how to handle large numbers of guests. The Allure of the Seas turned out to be the most impressive ship I have sailed on and here’s why: MIA-Port: We flew in to MIA. We purchased transfer through Royal Caribbean. Their shuttle buses did not start transporting guests until 10:30 am. There is very limited seating in the baggage claim area where Royal Caribbean passengers gather for the shuttle to the port. If you arrive early you can go up one level an eat breakfast but you must take all of your luggage with you. Embarkation: Embarkation was unbelievably fast and easy. From the time we arrived in the terminal until we walked onboard the Allure was maybe 15-minutes. Once we got on board, we went to Deck 15 Forward (the Solarium) to eat lunch. They have a limited buffet selection but they were not crowded like the Windjammer buffet and the view was incredible. After lunch we explored the ship until our cabin was ready at 1:00 pm. Cabin: We had an Ocean Balcony on Deck 11, Starboard, Forward, 11536. This was a nice enough cabin – no complaints. Adequate storage, good water pressure, clean, and a nice view. Ship: There is so much to write about this incredible ship that it would take a couple of pages, which I’ll write on my blog. I’ll touch on the main things: Food: The was good, not great, but the selection of eateries was impressive. We ate most of our breakfasts in the Main Dining Room (MDR) or Johnny Rockets. In the MDR you have a choice of a buffet or being served, I did both, at the same time. Johnny Rockets has a limited menu, but was never crowded. We at in the Solarium on our last morning. We ate all of our dinners either in the MDR or in a “specialty” restaurant. We rarely eat dinner in the buffet restaurant. The food selection and taste were good. I think that Royal Caribbean has the best onion soup of any cruise line. Their specialty restaurants are very good, although you will pay extra to eat there. We only ate at one specialty restaurant this cruise, Samba. Usually the MDR menus are mine for us, this cruise was no different. Purchase a dining package if you want to try several specialty restaurants – it saves you money. Royal Caribbean’s Coconut Commander Cookies are to die for! I ate about a million of them! The pizza is the best I’ve had at sea and it’s free down on Deck 5. Entertainment: Where do I begin? There is so much to see and do on this ship that you’ll almost need to book a B2B to see it all. The ice-skating shows (2 different ones on our cruise) was very impressive, even though the skaters fell several times. The Aqua shows (2 different ones on our cruise) were beyond incredible. The comedy shows were a 10. The Long Road was great. The entertainment around the ship was top notice. My wife and I really enjoyed the Jazz Club on Deck 4. The 3D movie was a nice touch (no extra charge). The outdoor areas were great too. Several pools, miniature golf, a basket ball court, twin Flow Riders, twin rock-climbing walls, zip line, carolsail, and the list goes on. Lots of stuff for the kids too. Service: Service was as good as it gets. Our cabin attendant was ‘spot on’ and the other servers/employees did a great job. No complaints! Cons: There seemed to be a water leak on our Deck. The carpet in the hall near our cabin was wet and there was a slight mildew smell in the hall. We could not smell it in our cabin. The only complaint I c=had regarding our cabin was that the door to our balcony whistled when the wind was strong. You needed to open it slightly to stop it. I think I forgot to mention it to our cabin attendant…..I’ll send them an email. And, when we arrived back in Miami at 3:20am the side thrusters, used for docking, shock the ship so bad that it woke us up and kept us up for 30-minutes. Other than that, everything met our expectations. Disembarkation: This is always the saddest part of my cruise – I don’t want to leave! The disembarkation process went very smooth and ahead of schedule. From the time out number was called until we found our luggage in the terminal was maybe 10-minutes. Very good job Royal Caribbean! Getting through Customs was made easy by the facial recognition system they use now. Conclusion: If you want to take your family on a cruise that will almost guarantee that they have the time of their lives then book on the Allure of the Seas or one of the other Oasis Class ships! I had a great time and will definitely book another cruise on an Oasis Class ship…. Very soon. I forgot to mention the ports-of-call (we’ve been to them so many times): St. Maarten, San Juan, & Labadie. They were good especially Labadie, Haiti – make it a point to visit there for a fun filled day. My wife’s favorite stop is always St Maarten. Read Less

This was the second time that we travelled on the Allure o/t Seas. 1. The most impressive improvements were embarkation and debarkation. Not doubt RC has done a great job with Terminal A at Miami cruise port and the new procedure. Getting on board worked like a breeze. Also impressive reentry to the US just with facial recognition! 2. The second improvement to mention is the new RC phone-app, which makes it easy to see what is going on, during your stay at the ship. But there are still improvements possible. i.e. I found it difficult to find the arrival and all aboard times for port of calls in the abundance of activities listed. The same activities were also listed on the cabin-tv. While booked shows and shore excursions carried over to the phone, individually entered calendar events at the tv (non ship) would not be shown on the app. At one time the app froze and had to be reinstalled. Mostly though it worked fine. 3. We thought that this time the food in the main dining room was better than the first time we traveled on her. 4. The whole experience on board was also more enjoyable, but this I contribute more to our experience from last time, which helped tremendously to get the most out of a 7 day cruise on a ship of this size. 5. The shows, the main reason we returned to the Allure, were as good as ever, you just have to make sure you book the most convenient time for you beforehand. 6. The hostess in the Elite and higher lounge was of exceptional help with getting thigs organized and clarified as needed! Read Less

We chose this cruise as we have sailed Norwegian twice before and loved it and wanted to try this line as we’d heard great things. Embarkation and disembarkation - so smooth and hassle free I don’t know how they managed getting so many people on and off without any line whatsoever truly amazing. When we got on the ship is certainly impressive but the main deck just feels like a mall, with constant announcements and noise about art auctions, watch sales, drinks package and internet sails, it really did spoil the cruise for us as in the evening this was where all of the bars were and I just felt Like I was sitting in a shopping centre. The boardwalk deck was mostly geared towards children so we didn’t go there, we went to deck 8 often as we purchased the ultimate dining package and that deck was always quiet and pleasant as it’s open air. We went to Giovannis the most we loved it there, we also enjoyed Central Park and the Mexican but we weren’t keen on chops really. Overall choice and food quality was much better on Norwegian and I’d say the food was average even on the package. I wouldn’t go for the package again for dining as you can’t go to the Japanese tables or chef table without extra charges so it wasn’t worth it for us and on our day at sea we really Struggled to get into any restaurant at all. Cabin- we had an ocean view balcony it was a decent size and lots of storage and everything worked well. Staff - all amazing all so mega keen to please and very smiley and genuine no complaints at all. Shows - mama Mia we didn’t like we were both utterly bored but tbh musical theatre isn’t our thing, blue planet was great and the cruise director was really funny . Entertainment we found quite limited as you can only do each show once and there was very limited entertainment in the bars and we just plain didn’t like sitting in the shopping centre bars so we were in bed early most nights Sun decks - not much outside space plenty of hot tub space and good they have adults only area. We never ever queued for a drink and always bottles on offer in mobile bars so can’t complain about that. Again entertainment was lacking it seemed to be always really noisy with pretty average bands which were actually more irritating than entertaining It’s a great ship, it was spotlessly clean and service was impeccable but unfortanately The contact focus on shopping Really spoilt it for us and the main deck was totally focused on shopping .
