Posted you on another thread as well. Trying to decide between cabin 10729 & 11729 on Allure.
Any thoughts?
Thanks, Chris
Both are great. I guess I'd lean toward 11729 because of it's proximity to the infamous public area right next door that has nice lounge chairs available.

Thank you so much for your postings. I can't believe how much information you included and the pictures were wonderful! I know this took a lot of time and I for one really appreciate it!
We've cruised a little bit but looking so forward to checking out the Oasis in May...expecially since we've gotten such a great look at the ship thru your pictures!

Strictly speaking cost-wise, especially with car rentals in Florida so cheap, it's not usually the cheapest way to get to Florida for a cruise, unless there are other particular reasons involved, such as you plan to stay for a while, or you just really don't like to fly.

I've never done it but I would like to some day. As with so many other aspects of cruising, sometimes we have to live vicariously through Radio!

Theron
Yes, you are correct. . . It is not the cheapest way to go to Florida.

The Fare for me and my Car is about $240 each way. . . If Mrs Radio goes. . .The fare would be about $80 more. . . But I usually get a Sleeper which costs a little more. . .

It is perfect for me, because I dont have to fly

The price includes unlimited bottled water, and coffee. They also serve complimentary wine, cheese, and snacks when you leave Lorton, VA.

Oh yeah, you also get Dinner, and breakfast (included). . .
They show a different movie for the Northbound and southbound run. . .

Our group of 8 enjoyed this cruise as well....just curious, did anyone hear the outcome of the crew member who was injured in Cozumel during the safety drill......we think of him and his family?

I see you are looking to do the Western on Allure in May, does that one stop at Falmouth? Can't wait to hear your thoughts on that port.

Hi Radio-
Like you, my family and I will be taking the Auto Train to Orlando, from there we plan to drive to Universal Orlando, drop our stuff in the Royal Pacific onsite hotel, and plan to hit Universal Studios park. The next day we plan to visit Islands of Adventure, and afterwards we are moving our stuff to the Doubletree hotel (We are boarding AllureOTS the next day, so we didn't feel the need to pay the extra money to stay onsite when we are allowed to use the Express Pass during our IOA check out day, and won't be using it the next day when we leave for Allure). Anyway this question is a little off topic for this website, but do you think we will be able to get through both parks in the 1.5 days we have? Keep in mind we have the Express Pass, and we are not concerned with shows and eating at gourmet restaurants, my kids just want to hit the big rides. My real concern is that we won't have enough time for Universal Studios, because by the time we leave the Auto Train and check into the Royal Pacific, it may not be enough time to hit all of the big rides. Thanks! Hope you had fun on your cruise!
