Questions?? Just got off of the Allure of the Seas!

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

Just finished a fabulous cruise on the Allure of the Seas 05/26/2019-06/02/2019!  We totally enjoyed every minute of it, except maybe the lines for "my time dining" (but we figured that out too).. If you have any questions, I would be happy to try to answer them.  We had an Ocean balcony room on the 6th floor, which we found to be an excellent location and felt next to no motion and had no noise issues!  We are so jealous of all of you future cruisers and can't wait to go back!!

 

Patti!!

2) Were there two different comedians? 

3) Favorite bar?

Sure, we found out that you can't really make a "reservation" until after 7:30 for MTD because the people that made them on-shore will be getting those (they also use the dining room for some traditional diners). So one night the Matire 'D (excuse spelling) took our name and gave us a card and just told us to come back in 1/2 hr and he would seat us immediately. So every night we did that.  We got dressed for dinner, went there, got the card and then went to Schooners and had a glass of wine. Then we went to dinner and sat right down.

 

My absolute favorite comedians name was Rich (forget his last name, but it was a Jewish name)..soooo funny. The woman (can't remember her name at all, sorry and I'm at work so I can't look it up) was NOT too funny the first night that we saw her. The second night she was better, but not as good as Rich.  The MC "Jamezy" was actually funnier than her.

 

Favorite bar was "Bow and Stern". We went there 3 different nights to hear Charlie Jourdan, but I think he was finishing up after our cruise.  We loved him.  We also liked the piano player/singer at Schooner and of course, the bar next to the Flow Rider was a big hit as well.

 

I can't even believe that we are back for almost a week already.. :(

just go and have the Matre 'D give you a card to come back when he tells you.  It works out well.  We live in NJ and are used to having to wait for dinner.  So, just plan on it ahead of time, go listen to some piano music or have a glass of wine and relax and when you go back, you'll sit right down.

 

Have a ball!!  I'm so jealous!

Did you see any drink cards for sale?

yes, half way through the cruise, they were offering 10 drinks for $79 I think.  It was also "shareable " with other family members, but we had the deluxe drink package anyway.

Howdy! My family and I are sailing the week of Thanksgiving (: We have sailed on Oasis about 6/7 years ago...

What eats were your favorite outside of the dining room?

For MTD, around what time did you eat each night?

How was the crowd on the cruise? Young, old, family, or couples?

Favorite drink??

We only ate at one specialty restaurant, CHOPS and it was fabulous!  Could cut the meat with a fork!  We ate between 7-8 every night. Didn't really notice the crowd too much, except when everyone was at Promenade for dance parties.  Mixed crowd, which we loved... babies, elderly, couples, newlyweds, all ages!!  Rum punch always makes me feel like I'm on vacation, but the Pina coladas were awesome too!  Have a ball, so jealous!!

I thought the bed was extremely comfy.. They had egg crates on top of mattress.. Slept well every night, and I'm not a good sleeper normally!!

Everything and everyone was fabulous.. The ONLY issue we had was one morning (the day we were in San Juan), we ate breakfast in the restaurant. We sat pretty quick, but the waiter was slow getting to us and they brought my daughters breakfast, about 15 mins before ours arrived.  No apologies or anything.  But, it all fairness, it was packed that day.  We got over it and had a great day anyway!!

I was on the same cruise. The comedian Rich was hysterical we were in the first row so he picked on my friends mom who had a heavy Italian accent. And your right the woman comedian was blah

Curious, why you did not care for Giovannis?

Was looking at trying it in a couple weeks.  We usually just do Chops, have had quite a few good meals at Chops.

And yes, love Chops on Allure.

 

Thanks

 

Safe travels.

We are in 6644 right in the "thick" of things, we can "hopefully" make our way back from the Schooner bar!  LOL😉😍  Which is across from our room!  That's the way we roll!😁

I just didn’t think it was anything special. I’m Italian and very very picky about Italian food so maybe that’s why.  Like Olive Garden I wouldn’t dare step foot in there lol. Not saying Giovanni’s is like Olive Garden. I will say the service was outstanding. I just wasn’t a fan of the food either were my friends
