We're going in October - can't wait.

Been a good few weeks here... had Trainman-2 doing the Freedom last week and now you doing the Allure... it's like a free vacation.

First Trainman-2 on the Freedom and now you on the Allure. As I write this, the Allure is about 150 miles north northeast of Punta Cana airport.

Thanks again and have a wonderful week!!

Michelle
Thanks for the nice comments. . .I am in the Caribou Coffeehouse, next to AutoTrain in Lorton. I will post a few pics when I board, but I am posting now with my iPad and am unable to attached pics. .

The AutoTrain leaves at 4PM, and I have to get my car over there by 3. . .I know that the AT costs a bit more and it takes much more time to get to my destination, but. . . I don't like to fly. . .

I have flown, and I will again but I think I will wait to fly when Mrs.Radio want to go to Hawaii next year.:o

Thanks for tuning in. . .

Yippeee Radio is taking all of us on the Allure of the Seas, well you sure makes us feel like we are right there with you. I can’t wait to follow your report you are one of my favorites to read on cruise critic along with Trainman and Bionic man. I do have a request if you could get pics of all the menus where ever you eat, it would be nice if you could post them when you get back home.

You last report was fabulous so I'm really looking forward to reading this one too as I'll be sailing on Allure next week Eastern, but I want to hear all about the shows and food. Will you be eating in the main dining room or only at speciality restaurants?

Woo Hoo!!! Another "LIVE" from Radio - can't wait! We are going on Allure for the first time in September and also doing the Western. What cabin category are you in? We are in a D1 on the "hump". Hope this is a good location because I feel clueless about this ship. Have a wonderful time! Wanda

The pier in labadee is wonderful. We hadnt been for a few years and we were there this past December. Truly needed and makes it much easier to not have to tender.

Labadee has changed a lot, you will like it.
