Mott1086 Posted October 23, 2013 #1 Share Posted October 23, 2013 Good Evening, Fellow Cruisers! I Am In A Bit Of A Dilemma, And Am Hoping For Your Expect Advice. I Took My Wife And Parents On Our Very First Cruise This Past May, 2013, On The Allure / Western Caribbean, And Instantly Fell In Love With The Ship, Royal Caribbean, And Cruising In General. In Fact, I Had Such A Great Time That While On The Ship, I Booked Us The Allure Again For May 2014, But This Time The Eastern Caribbean. While Starting The Planning For Our 2015 Trip, I Came Across The Jewel, Which Sails Out Of Puerto Rico, And Has A Very Nice Southern Itinerary. I Was All Set To Book The 2015 Southern Caribbean Trip, While On The Allure In May 2014, And Use The OBC On The Allure Trip. That Was My Plan, Until A Phenomenal Sale Occurred With My Travel Agent, And Involved NCL. You See, I Have Had My Eye On The Getaway, For Some Time…But The Horrid Reviews From The Breakaway Had Me Scared. Well, Love And Behold, My Agent Was Able To Get Me A Spa Mini-Suite On The Getaway For April 2015, With $220 Of OBC, A Free Bottle Of Wine, And Dinner For Two At Cagney’s Steakhouse. I Keep Going Back And Forth, And If I Do Decide On The Getaway, I Need To Book Soon As The Sail Will End Soon. Few Things I Am Considering: The Getaway Total Price For Just The Cruise Is $3300, While The Jewel Is $1900. Now, Before Someone Mentions It, I Know The Ships Are Not In The Same Category. I Am A Big Fan Of Loyalty, And Like The Idea Of Staying With One Line (RCCL) To Boast Up My Crown / Anchor Points. The Reviews For The Breakaway Really Have Me Concerned, But A Few Of Mine Was Just On Her, And Loved Her. I Wonder If The Reviews Have Gotten Better On Breakaway, Only Due To The Fact This Is Slow Time, And Not As Busy. I Love Being In The Sun, At The Pools, And The Crowding Reviews Of The Pool On Seas Days (Breakaway) Have Me Worried. Yes, There Were More People On The Allure, But There Were Also More Pools, And Only Ever Felt Lots Of People After The Muster Drill, When Everyone Left. Thoughts Would Be Greatly Appreciated! I Am Posting This On Both The RCCL / NCL Boards To Get A Good Range Of Advice, As I Am Sure There Will Be Some Bias Opinions. -Michael Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
