Guess Andy wanted in on some of the fun. Hope he's not an alcoholic. I can't be sharing my premium beverage package with him.

I think I am in love with Bendy Andy! He seems like my kind of guy! Is he single? Does he like older women??

I forgot to ask, do you think he knows Flat Stanley?

Thank you so much for your review! We get on board next Sunday and are enjoying reading your experience. I do have a quick question for you though...you mentioned having the premium drink package. Is it the old package or the new one? Another report stated that the new package was not available on the Allure today. Is this true? Thanks again!

Subscribed. Loving your review makes me homesick for our boardwalk balcony cabin. We loved it, just hope crew doesn't decide to do tile repair at 1 AM on your cruise.

From what I understand its the new. But I've not got my drink cup yet. But once my phone is back to 100% charged I'm going to see about getting my cup, another adult beverage and a hot dog. I'm hungry again for some reason. :-) From what I understand new package went into effect on 11/15.

I feel like I am so on the Allure thank you so much!

I noticed toiletries in the bathroom sink, what category stateroom do you have and if I forgot sorry, but which deck are you on?

I think Andy is going to get you into trouble sharing your premium drinking package, I also think he may need the toilet soon haha.

So after I chilled out in my room some and waited for my battery hog iPhone charge I wandered down to the boardwalk to get a new hot dog. It was tasty, today I got the German one.



Got an adult beverage called the Captains Caipirinha. I didn't like it so I only drank part of it and donated it the recycle bin at the pool bar.



Got to hear some "Live" island music up on the pool deck.



My replacement drink was the Sunburst Splash. Is alright. I'll finish this drink.



Pool bar menu





As far as I know Andy is back in the room. He's on lock down since he tried to steal my drink.

When I was in Central Park I tried to get my soda cup since there was not one in my room from the guy selling them. Access denied. Guess he hasn't got the memo the drink packages changed as of 11/15. I shall make another attempt at a later time with a new source.

Made my way to Promenade deck to see if I could find someone selling the alcohol packages. Since it was so close to muster I wasn't successful, but will try again after sail away.

Some views on Promenade deck. Looks like a fun bar.





Pizza time



One the best bars on the ships



Then around 4 they started calling folks to the muster stations. I made my way there early because well I'm not sure. But here I am. It's slowly filling up. Must say I rather this than standing out on deck. :-)







Hope by the time the drill arrives I can get back to deck 11 port side in time for sail away with Breezy, Bugsy, Husker and the rest of the crew. Thanks to Breezy I do have a nice pink Fedora. I also have big white hamburger helper hands. You may see me on the webcam. We will all be at the aft of the ship on the not secret deck 11. Look for the Pink Boa and Pink Fedora, fun, feathers and friends sign.

See you all at sail away!

I am loving your review. And the pictures a fantastic.
Are you going to go into the casino? If you do, can you please take a picture of the floor? There are glass rose petals, I believe in the entrance, that my husbands company made. I would love to see them. Thanks!
