Best part of the whole meal. Seriously! I'm not a dessert eater either.

I'm in the MDR right now for dinner #2 with Breezy, Husker, Bugsy & Stevie from our roll call.

 

More later. :-) Fun Adventures cruising Royal Caribbean continue! :-)

Andy wanted to get closer to Wendy so he drank some of her Martini.

For allowing him to drink her drink he must now wear a Pink Boa.

Dale is this your first cruise on the wonderful Oasis class ships?

 

What a treat they are :) Enjoy Giovannis

 

My first time but certainly not my last. One week shortly isn't enough. :-)

Great Job! Love your pics and love following both yours and Chris's LIVE reports. Photos are great and must say I'm loving what Andy is getting up to! (can I borrow him for my Oasis cruise next month:)).

 

Love the Boardwalk and cabins -- my first was probably not far from you -- 10719, Emmy and Rick were across from me on that cruise. Next month Boardwalk again, just say closer to the aft and looking forward to it:)

What type of beef was that dish the photo is a bit cloudy, by the way thanks a bunch for those!

 

Menu says beef tenderloin. It was nice and tender. Hit the spot. :-)

Thanx Bugsy and Mr F/S... still glued to your sites and appreciate all your pics - Dale: can you please join us on the Q for 2015?

Host Corkey

 

Once it gets closer I may look into cruising on her then. Would be lots of fun. I'm also considering doing the transatlantic next fall.

Got lost wandering around looking for Andy. There was a report he got loose and is very tipsy. Here are some of the places I stumbled upon I've never been. My rather dark pictures don't do the area justice. This ship is simply amazing all over.

In my hunt for Andy I decided to stop off and have a drink or two at the On Air with Bugsy.

You stopped for a DRINK, when Andy could be passed out and about to get run over by a cabin steward's cart, or worse, stepped on by an over-sized cartoon character? Bad friend :mad:

 

:p

THANK YOU Mr Fun and Bugsy for allowing us to share your cruise. I am so enjoying all of the pictures and insight before we sail on her in less than 4 short weeks!! I am particularly enjoying watching Andy's shenanigans. He is TOO CUTE and loves his cocktails!!!

 

What amazes me is today was your first sea day and yet it didn't look crowded anywhere in any of your pictures. Bars are empty, the flow rider didn't look packed, normal amounts of people playing golf and even the pool didn't look crowded!!! I LOVE that!!!

 

Just want you to know how much we all appreciate both of your live threads. I know how much work goes into them and I am having so much fun sailing with you via the world wide web!!!

Good Evening...

 

Today has been another wonderful and busy day aboard the Allure of the Seas. It started out with room service and a nice relaxing morning on my balcony with a couple cups of coffee over looking the ocean and the boardwalk. That quiet time quickly progressed to our CC meet and mingle and then our slot pull. After our slot pull we progressed to the dining room for a great lunch. Not really sure where the time went today because before I knew it, it was 2pm.

 

 

Look even the little people have their own chairs.

 

null_zps5cc1f8ea.jpg

 

Made my way around the ship enjoying our day at sea. Later in the afternoon I made my way to the beach pool and hung out with Breezy, Husker, Lisa &Anthony. Was a nice afternoon and pool side conversation. Made my way back to my room for a bit and a brief nap before dinner at Gio's. Woke up from my nap around 615. My reservation was at 630. Was a speedy shower and change. Had a very nice waiter, don't recall his name but he was nice and asked if I had any shows I needed to get to. I advised I didn't but to put me on the fast track to eat as I was meeting up with friends at 8:00 to eat again. I was out of there just before 8. My meal was fairly good with my dessert being the best. I have no idea what it was as I didn't look at the menu and went with my waiters suggestion.

 

Made my way to the MDR for my second meal with Bugsy, Breezy, Husker and another nice couple from our roll call.

 

After dinner made a contribution to the casino and then walked around the ship for a bit. This ship never has felt crowded to me.

 

Some good news though in my search for Andy is I found him at the bow of the ship in the Solarium hot tub. Good thing he didn't get caught as I'm really not sure he is over 21.

 

null_zpsefdf69a8.jpg

 

Because of his antics I'm having tonight's towel animal watch after him. Hope he behaves. Tomorrow we are in Labadee and I'll be enjoying some quiet time on shore and doing the Dragon Zip line. That's all for today though, I must now get some sleep.

 

null_zps1e5a78b5.jpg

 

We have been rocking and rolling this afternoon and evening, it's rather nice. Seemed as though we passed thru a rain storm for a bit too.

 

 

 

Till a later time, "Live" from the "Allure of the Seas"!

Really enjoying the ride. Your pics are great. I am thinking you may have to put a leash on Andy, and limit him a little. LOL so funny....

 

I am with the others, you need to join us on Q in 2015.

I love your review so far, have a fun time in Labadee! I can't wait to be on the Allure, four months from today we will be four days into our Allure cruise. WOO HOO...don't want to hurry time, but ready for my spring break cruise. I don't know what I'm going to call my March cruises once my daughter is in college and no longer wants to share her spring breaks with us...LOL

What was the drink you had? (pina colada looking with greenish specks) Looked yummy!

Thanks again for sharing your cruise with us!

Have a great day in Labadee! I'll be thinking about you all on the beach today while I'm sitting in my office... :mad:

 

Thanks again for letting us cruise with you! I'm have a blast with this review and missing the oasis even more now.

I am new to CC and am not sure what Live even means let alone how to follow - can anyone help me. I am going on the Allure December 15th and am so excited so any pointers for me would be appreciated.

"Live" means the poster is posting their review while on the ship, as it unfolds. Other reviews are post cruise.

 

Welcome to CC!

Your dessert at Gio's was a Tiramisu, honestly I am not crazy about them in general. But my bf seemed to love their tiramisu!

So enjoying your adventures with Andy and beautiful photos, too. Will Andy be doing the zip line? It is loads of fun! Look forward to your photos from today. This a my favorite place to sun, swim and relax! Can't wait to visit again in January!
