  1. I'm looking forward to some workouts to burn those extra cruise calories. What is the fitness center like? Was it crowded?
  2. Have you seen the photo of the woman standing on the outside ledge of her balcony on Allure? It's popping up last 2 days supposedly on this week's sailing. My question if you've seen it, does it look real? The balcony railing wall looks solid white but I believe all of Allure balconies have glass. I can't place this location on Allure.
  3. Do you board from the port or starboard side? Also, which deck do you board on? Thank you. Yancycruiser
  4. I am looking at a week of Cruise Compass dailies from a May 2019 sailing on the Allure and there is no mention of what the bar hours are. The closest thing I see is that the Cafe Promenade Bar and the Pool Bar open early and also several that are open late. So I'm looking for a list of when all the different bars are open. Is there a current list of the bar hours for the Allure?
  5. Were going on Allure in a couple of weeks. We were on her several years ago. I was really looking forward to going to the Main theater to see some 3D movies again but I just got done looking at someones cruise compass from this past September and I dont see any listings for the 3D movies only a few movies offered at the aqua theater. Does anyone know if they no longer do the 3D in the theater?
  6. Hi All, Looking forward to our first B2B cruise in October. I have heard some ships provide a lunch for those staying on for an additional cruise. Anyone know if this happens on Allure? Thanks in advance for any replies! 🌴⛴🌴⛴
  7. Hello! I am looking for information on the Western Mediterranean itinerary on Allure of the Seas or the Greece/Croatia itenerary on Rhapsody. I am not looking for info on the Allure as I've sailed it before, but rather on the itinerarys, or if someone can compare the two boats. Hope that make sese. Can someone guide me as to where to find reviews of this specific itinerary? Looking to sail early June, 2020. We are really limited on our travel dates, so needs to be something the first week of June. Thank you!
  8. Hi, just came back from a Cruise on the Rhapsody (Greek Islands), after we loved the Rhapsody so much the year before. We already booked a Cruise on the Allure for September 2020. 7 Nights Mediterranean (from Barcelona to Mallorca, Provence, Pisa/Florence, Rome, Naples and back). The last time we've been on the Allure was back in 2011, so I'm excited to revisit her after her upcoming overhaul in November. But now for my real question. We booked the unlimited Dining package this cruise and were happy about it (except Chops Grille was closed for a private event the last night!). Too bad though we only had one cruising day and we only could spend one lunch at Izumi. So now I really wonder about the Allure and I hope somebody who was there recently can help me out: Do the specialty restaurants on the Allure close on port days as well for lunch? Or can I use may unlimited Dining package as well on some port days for lunch? Because I've been to Pisa, Florence and Rome several times and I might just wanna stay on the ship and enjoy the Allure to its fullest. But if all specialty restaurants close as well for lunch, I might have to rethink buying the unlimited package or not. It's also quite bad that when purchasing an unlimited package, you can't make reservations before the cruise online. That means some restaurants might be booked out when boarding. Happened to some passengers on this cruise. Thanks for any help!
  9. Anyone on Allure recently who can say if they have faux feather pillows? NOT in the suites, but regular staterooms. And not the foam blocks type either, just trying to decide whether to bring mine. Thanks in advance!
  10. I'm looking at a May 2019 Cruise Compass for the Allure and on embarkation day it says nothing about when any of the bars open. We will probably be on board prior to our room being available so we were going to have a drink beforehand. Will most of the bars be open when they start allowing passengers to board? We are embarking this weekend.
  11. Hello! Woo hoo! Just booked last night. This is my first RC cruise - I have done Princess and Carnival in the past. Wow - airfare is nuts! Looking to book a returning flight from West Palm Beach. Since this is my first RC, not sure how quick they are to disembark at Port Everglade. Anyone gotten off Allure o hte Seas at this port? We plan to bring our own luggage off and leave as early as we are able. Previous I have disembarked by 8 or earlier, but this is my first megaship cruise and was curious as to how quick they are. Does RC disembark those who bring their luggage themselves? I am hoping to be off the 8:30 - 9 to catch a noon flight at West Palm Beach airport. Sound reasonable? Any recommendations for transportation from ship to West Palm Beach airport? Thanks!
  12. I'm pretty sure that I read somewhere that they do not have an omelet station in the Windjammer on the Allure. Is there anywhere on the Allure that has an omelet station for breakfast?? Thank you all in advance!!
  13. Hello all! We are starting to plan out next cruise. Both Harmony and Allure have cruises that go out on January 3, 2021. The one on Harmony goes to St. Kitts, St. Thomas, and Coco Cay. The one on Allure goes to Coco Cay, St. Maarten, and San Juan. We would be picking an inside cabin with no view. I know that the ships are pretty close to the same, and that Allure will be getting updated before we go, but are the shows and food about the same also? Looking at the deck plans Allure's inside cabins might be smaller. (but not a deal breaker) We have always managed to do Western Caribbean, so this will be our first Eastern Caribbean, and I'm not sure which itinerary is best for us. I have looked at the excursions, and again about the same for the things we would enjoy. Prices are pretty comparable on either as well. So I am looking for some opinions. Ultimately I know it is our decision, but some opinions will help us weigh the good and bad, pros and cons. Thanks!
  14. $7.95 + 18% gratuity seems high gratuity on $7.95 ? used to be no charge.
  15. When on Oasis of the Seas our Royal Refreshment beverage package included Red Bulls and smoothies at the Spa. Can anyone confirm that this is also the case for Allure? It may impact our decision on a beverage package. Thanks much!
  16. My last cruise was on Celebrity Equinox and it took over two hours to board. Long time on my feet as I am 74 years old. What amount of time should I expect on AOS? I am Platinum.
  17. 23 days until we sail Allure. This won't be our first time with Royal but will be our first Oasis class.I have been wanting sail and Oasis class ship since is debut. What are the "must dos?" We are primarily going for the ship, as that is destination in itself. We are only getting off the ship in San Juan. We plan to spend a lot of time our BW balcony people watching, in the solarium reading or drinking one of the many bars. Oh, and did I mention drinking? But seriously, what are some of your favs on the Allure? Happy cruising!
  18. Currently on Allure sailing towards Cozumel and thought I would do a quick review of our JS. This is our first cruise back on RCI in 8 years after mostly sailing Celebrity and Princess and definitely not one of our favorites. I read about the JS having minimal benefits on CC but am pleasantly surprised. We checked in on the app and once we arrived at the port (about 10:45) got in line. Once they saw our boarding pass said Sea class they directed us to the Suite check in which I thought was for Sky and above. There was no line for suites, they quickly took our photo and a photo of our passports and directed us to the upstairs waiting area all in about 3 minutes. once upstairs they asked to see our boarding pass and escorted us to the Sea and Sky waiting area. This was another surprise as I figured we would be in the Diamond+ area. Some posts on here make the JS seem like there are no benefits other than double points. By 11:00 they called Pinnacle and all Suites to board and we were on within minutes. our cabin is on the hump and has a huge double depth balcony with two lounge chairs and a table with two chairs. This is about the only place we can get any peace and quiet on the ship 🙂 . I love that the cabin is so wide and spacious compared to a Princess mini which is narrow but longer. The walk-in closet is huge and there is tons of storage, drawers and shelves for a 30 day cruise. The large sitting area with a sofa and chair is also useful. Of course there is a full tub in the bathroom with the L’Occitane bath products. The first night we saw Mama Mia and went up to deck 5. There was a large reserved area for suitres and Pinnacles. We figured it was Sky and above but to our surprise our Sea class cards were welcomed. We were able to show up to Oceanaria and the hardliner show about 10 mins prior since we had the reserved seats. The one disappointment has been Coastal Kitchen. We have tried to get in three different nights, two nights we were told no availability and the third night we were told they could squeeze us in at 8:30 pm which is way too late to eat for us so we have given up. I had the Diamond concierge call each time for us no luck. Not a big deal but wanted to try it. Overall very happy with our JS size and benefits. I will try and post some pictures and n a few minutes. I am typing from the Solarium so please forgive any spelling errors. Happy to answer any questions as well.
  19. I’m on the coming Sunday 9/29 sailing of the Allure and am 5.5 months into my Ketogenic lifestyle. I’m down 30ish lbs and finally feel pretty cute again. I don’t want to cheat. Does anyone have any experience with this WOE while cruising? I have a game plan in mind and have reviewed various menus etc. but I request and welcome all tips or past experiences as guidance. Thank you
  20. My girlfriend and I are going on the Allure of the Seas in a couple weeks and enjoy playing Pokémon Go. We have the unlimited internet, any tips or tricks for those that like to play, or any way to find groups of other players? Stops or gyms on the boat?
  21. I was looking to see what all options they have in the soda package, i know they have the freestyle machines but do they have other options on these machines like lemonade and ice tea as well or is it only carbonated soda? Just seeing if it is worth getting the package for my daughter but she doesn't really drink soda but she drinks fruit punch, lemonade, ice tea and other things that soda dispensers also have just don't know how it is set up on the Allure. Any past cruisers have any input that would be greatly appreciated.
  22. I've read about people "getting stuck" on deck 7 on the Allure. Can someone tell me what this means?
  23. For the Aug 25th sailing on the Allure when were you notified of the complete itinerary change? We were handed the information right before boarding but hear some people received an email. If you were on that sailing and received an email when did you get it? Thanks
  24. Do they show the NFL football games on Sunday or Thursday evenings on big screens? I was thinking they might use the Aquatheater but Ocean Aria is scheduled for embarkation day Sunday.
