LIVE from Allure of the Seas, sailing April 27th!

Recommended Posts

Hello friends! Once again, the sea is calling my name...

 

It's time for a vacation and I am happy to be once again reporting LIVE from my favorite ship the incredible Allure of the Seas sailing this Sunday! This will include two days in Fort Lauderdale as a "warm up" to the adventure and I promise plenty of food porn for everyone! :D

 

This time my travels will take me to the eastern Caribbean, an area I haven't been to for nearly two years. Our stops include Nassau, St. Thomas, and St. Maarten.

 

For those of you not familiar with me, my friend and fellow CC member Radio inspired me to do my first ever LIVE from Oasis back in October of 2012 and it turned out well. I appreciate all that followed along and have followed my more recent adventures aboard Celebrity Silhouette and Allure just a little over 5 months ago. As you know I love to take photos and give everyone a chance to follow along "virtually" my adventures sailing to the Caribbean

 

LIVE reviews take a lot of time and effort but the end result I feel is well worth it, especially seeing so many people and their excitement as I provide them with daily reports.

 

So join me on what is sure to be another fantastic cruise to the Caribbean aboard Allure! As Radio would say, "thanks for tuning in everyone." :)

The car is loaded up and ready to go and I'll be headed to my hotel by O'hare shortly

Even the car is getting into the Pink Boa and Fedora cruisers spirit ;)

Hi Chris,

I will definitely be following your review. Your last one was very informative and in one word "awesome". Our family of 4 will be sailing on the Allure in October for the first time. I am super excited :D

Hello friends! Once again, the sea is calling my name...

 

It's time for a vacation and I am happy to be once again reporting LIVE from my favorite ship the incredible Allure of the Seas sailing this Sunday! This will include two days in Fort Lauderdale as a "warm up" to the adventure and I promise plenty of food porn for everyone! :D

With you all the way, Chris! Wish I was there with you!

Hi Chris,

Well, your adventure has officially begun. As I have said before, you will have 10,000 posts before the Allure departs FLL. I am ready to enjoy this trip vicariously with all your wonderful pictures and narrative. Plus, I can enjoy seeing all lovely food presentations that you and your cruise friends will enjoy without me gaining any weight !!!!

Hey Chris, will definitely be looking forward to your daily posts. I love the Allure. Going to try to do my own live postings from Oasis 3-10 May. ;) I'm not good at the pictures like you though. Safe travels and have a wonderful cruise. :D

Well, Chris! Off "we" go to someplace you will be visiting again in November on the Regal Princess. But I will be with you in PERSON then, but this time I'll be a virtual follower! I'm sure you have perfected your talents with reporting LIVE, and I can hardly wait to read your daily updates! I'll be in front of the screen watching your SailAway from FLL, so if you have a special place for me to try to find you, let me know ASAP!

 

Bon Voyage, my friend! See you in about 190 days, give or take! :rolleyes:

OMGosh your going again yet!!

 

Chris I have a few questions if you don't mind...I have to say your last review on the Allure blew me away, we are going on the eastern caribbean sailing on her in two weeks, too bad I missed you.

 

Anyway, have a few questions if you don't mind:

 

1- When you board the ship let me know whether there are workers right there taking reservations for specialty dining, we have 5 nights booked already, but hoping to add two others and hoping we don't have to go right to the restaurants to make these reservations...sometimes on RC ships, when you board there are people walking around (workers) taking these reservations.

 

2- Please let me know the menu for 150 Central Park, I am hoping they have changed the menu from the last one, i do know they tend to change according to seasons, would truly like to see the updated one.

 

Oh boy, I get to sail with you this week and two weeks get the real thing now this is going to be exciting!

 

Where are you going for lunch when you get to FLL and dinner let us know lol have a ball!
