I am a seasoned cruiser, but first time on a Royal Caribbean ship. We loved every bit of Royal Caribbean and the Allure of the Seas cruise ship! We had a Central Park view balcony room on deck 12, midship, but a little closer to the front of the mid ship area. It was a very convenient location for a room, close to elevators, etc. The balcony was very spacious, much bigger than any other balcony room I've had on other cruise lines. The room itself was very spacious and comfortable. I absolutely loved the shower, it's a door instead of a curtain, therefore does not get water all over the floor. Even though the ship is the biggest cruise ship out of all the cruise lines, it did not take long to get anywhere on the ship, we didn't feel like we were walking long at all. We loved the Solarium area, which is the adult only area, it's the perfect place for breakfast, lounging in the sun, there's a small pool and a couple hot tubs. It was our favorite area on the ship. We loved the Bow and Stern Pub on the promenade deck, we ended up there every night. We loved all of the food on the ship. From the Windjammer buffet, to the pizza, it was all very, very good. We had a fabulous time, and will definitely sail Royal Caribbean again, and the Allure of the Seas again!

The company Royal Caribbean uses for transfers at the Houston airport kept travelers waiting for over 2 hours as they were trying to find additional people to fill their bus. The bus set idling for the whole time while we waited. They never did get enough people to fill the bus. When we got to the checkin they said it would only be a 20-30 minute wait, even tho they knew full well that they would be waiting for flights that wouldn’t land for another 2 hours.

Fantastic experience on this ship! I was unsure as to how great it would be given it huge size, but it just allowed them to pack more fun and opportunity into my cruise. Loved the waitstaff who knew our names and preferences. The guy who taught me to use the Flow Rider body surfing area, the carousel, the amazing diving/water show, the ice skating, daily pickleball. It was fantastic.

I am shocked to see anything other than 5 STAR reviews. This ship is astounding! I was amazed from the first moment I saw it on the horizon from my hotel room at dawn the morning we were leaving Galveston. Truly an amazing ship! EVERY SINGLE STAFF member from the time we arrived at the terminal was so nice friendly and helpful. Food was outstanding. We ate in the Windjammer almost every meal, except did love pizza, Johnny Rockets, and Izumi on our first night as a treat. Room service was wonderful and such delicious fruit! - balcony room couldn't have been better! We overlooked the Central Park. We went during the school year so there weren't very many children. The casino was so much fun! Ice capades show was exciting and fun! Pools were very closely monitored. Hot tubs weren't too hot, just right for relaxing and watching football! Zip line was exciting! Wave runner was a blast for my daughter! Our cabin steward was wonderful - always had our room made-up and so clean. There were SO MANY things to do on board! The Boardwalk was so much fun, shopping, eating, games, carousel!!! Parades the first 2 days! Balloon drop! Salute to servicemen! Cory was the best activities director! Couldn't have asked for a better vacation! Will definitely be going back before Allure goes to Florida at the end of 2023.

This was our first adventure on a mega ship and the following are my thoughts. It's big, really big. But I never felt crowded and never really stood in line. Even on port days. Embarkation was very easy in Galveston. Mama Mia was exceptional. We have seen lots of musicals in San Antonio and the cast and production were better than most of those shows. Main dining room service and food were good. Chops was awesome. Giovanni's table was not worth the extra fee. Service was great. Food was just ok. Casino table limits were $10. Even during the day. This is too high for me since I am a casual gambler. Comedy and ice shows were very good. Please note that we made show reservations before getting on the ship. They are free but I highly recommend reservations or you may not get in. we reserved a cruise on a similar ship with an outside balcony instead of over the Boardwalk. The big negative regarding the ship is that water views are limited. Happy Cruising.
