Are those current plane pictures?  I didn't realize that the hotels on the North end of Maho Beach had been rebuilt.  If so, very good news for the island.

 

Yes,  I just took each of those this afternoon.

Just got caught up with your review, and have to say it's making me very excited for my departure in 18 days. We will be on the Allure and same itinerary, but first cruise for us! Thank you for taking the time to review.  

 

You’re in for an amazing cruise, she’s an amazing ship. Thanks for following along!

Thank you for your wonderful review!  If able, can you snap a picture of the Starbucks menu boards? I'm interested in the pricing. We are sailing the 19th.  Thanks again! 

 

Thanks for following along!  I’ll see what I can do. 😀

As exciting as it would be to watch the planes at Maho Beach, The noise would probably kill me. Was there anyone wearing ear protection since those planes are coming in at about 120-140db noise level?

 

Not that I could see. However if you are over in the bar area it’s not that loud.

the biggest ship I have sailed on is explorer and I usually sail the little ladies from Baltimore. I am in awe of the size of this ship. I m booked on the Indy and I feel overwhelmed with that. I cant imagine being on Allure. And your pics never look crowded anywhere. amazing. 

 

thanks for bringing us along.

Honestly I’ve felt more crowded sailing on Enchantment of the seas, Brilliance of the seas, Jewel of the seas and Monarch of the seas over any of my many sailings on Oasis class ships. Especially getting on and off ships at ports is a breeze. But in general I rarely feel crowded on these ships.

What did you think of the Martini? Sounds interesting. Also was that the Lobster Thermidor? if so how was it? I've heard mixed reviews. The Beef Tenderloin for 2 seems real yummy, I have not eaten at 150 Central Park yet but will on Harmony this coming October.

After the 70’s show we somehow ended up back in the casino. At the start things were looking not to favorable. Changed machines a few times then won this...

Then lost this to the last $11.00

Was a good night, lost some of this at another machine but ended the night decently..

 

 

 

Went to the elevator and realized it was now...

Time for sleep. We dock early in San Juan and plan to eat breakfast at the Chocolate restaurant, see some umbrellas over a street then it’s time to get back on the ship for a 1:00pm all about.

Oh the cucumber martini is amazing. Really liked the lobster Thermidor. 150 Central Park is by far one of my favorites. Definitely thumbs up on the tenderloin too!
