This was our fifth cruise on Allure of the Seas and it did not disappoint. We cruise quite often and this was our third cruise on Allure since Nov 2023. In Nov we stayed in an Aqua suite, in Jan 2024 we staying in a Grand suite and this time we stayed in a Crown Loft suite. The suite was amazing, it is an upstairs bedroom with a downstairs living room. I enjoyed the floor to ceiling windows of the suite, lots of natural light. My daughter enjoyed having the two bathrooms, the first floor bathroom was pretty standard with most other staterooms, it had the phone booth type show but had a large vanity. The second floor master bathroom had a very nice walk in shower that spanned the entire back wall with shower heads on both side walls and an rain shower head in the middle of the shower. There was tons of storage and lots of outlets and USB ports for charging. It was conveniently located near the Coastal Kitchen and suite lounge. This suite came with two suite attendants who were amazing, Adriana and Imade made the cruise very enjoyable, they were friendly and very attentive. When we arrived at our suite, there was twelve bottles of Evian water, Adriana said we had ordered them but we hadn't, regardless she said "Well, there here so they are yours." We had great bottled water for the entire cruise. Thank you to both of them for taking such good care of us. Imade was a towel genius who ensured we had new towel sculptures each day to include a pretty elaborate mermaid. The cruise was a standard 3 night, four day cruise to Nassau and Coco Cay. We have been to Nassau numerous times and at first chose not to do a shore excursion but changed our mind and went on the semi-submissible submarine where we were supposed to get a close up of the sea life around some of the coral reefs in a protected marine sanctuary. It was not the best shore excursion and I would not recommend it to other cruisers. There was minimal wildlife to view, the windows on the vessel needed a good cleaning and when there were fish, it was difficult to get good pictures of them due to the glare on the windows. We always enjoy Coco Cay, we bought floating mats, the ones with floats on either side and mesh in the middle. These are the only floats RC allows in the lagoon swimming area. The weather was perfect as was the water temperature, so it was nice to lay on our floats and float around the lagoon. I had a interesting encounter when an Iguana decided to crawl up into my lap for a visit, it was kind of cool until the Iguana decided to bite me about four times and it had such sharp claws that it scratched my legs up pretty good when crawling around on my. I didn't want to shoo it away until my wife and daughter could see it. Should this happen to you, make sure to wash the area bitten well with soap and water and apply an antibiotic to the area. All in all it was another amazing short cruise. We have an upcoming 7 day cruise to Alaska in August aboard Quantum of the Seas, followed by another short three night four day cruise on Utopia in October 2024. Another five day cruise in April 2025 to the Mediterranean on Allure after it is amped and finally a seven day cruise on Icon of the Seas in June 2025. We love cruising on Royal Caribbean and always have a great time. Thanks RC for making more family memories for our family and we look forward to many more.

Was a decent short getaway. The ship itself is kept very clean. The shows at AquaTheater were good and not too boring like on some other ships. We got a balcony room and it was very clean and room service was always accessible and polite. One thing that sticks out for this ship is the friendly staff and nice people. Food at the buffet tasted good for what it was, but lacking in variety from day to day. Specialty restaurants would be the way to go if you want some food that taste better than what you get at the buffet. Sabor Taqueria & Tequila is good to get some falavorful food. You may also want to try 150 Central Park which seems like it was a good idea, but I found the portions to be smaller than I like and we waited too long before we got any food, but once it arrived it was very good. The server was friendly and likely not their fault how fast food came out. There are too many things to do on the ship and waiting for food or eating is not something I consider fun. I don't know if that is normal for that restaurant because we only ate there once. They have a Flowrider surf which was fun to do, the zipline is also a fun thing to do at least once while you are on the ship. As with all cruises they have quite a few places to shop if that is what you like to do. Thermal Spa is a good option to get away from the crowd and just relax. Its not as spacious as I expected but it was clean and the staff were all very nice. Overall I would say for a short cruise its a decent option. The staff is always courteous and helpful if you need anything. Getting off and on the ship was pretty fast and no hassles compared to some other cruises.

Big ship with many offerings for all generations. The crew and service were super. This sailing must have been sold out. It was packed. Too many people for my liking and more than a few that left their social skills in the parking deck before boarding. That aside, the ship, the food, drinks, and ports were fine. We had a good time and will cruise again in the near future.

We have not even gotten started on our trip sailing on 4/29/24, but it's already starting out to be a terrible experiance. We booked this cruise because of the fact that we were going to a Labadee, where there is a direct beach access with free food and beverages. Due to current violence happening in Haiti, our itineary was changed to nassau, where now we have to pay extra to go to a beach excursion, and pay additional for beverages/food. At least take us to another beach area or to cococay, instead of downgrading our trip without any refund. This will be my first and last time cruising with Royal Caribbean.

Amazing ship! We had such a good time on our 3 night Bahamas cruise - the cabin was great, loved the balcony and the beds were super comfy - we had 10316 which was 5 person occupancy, there were 4 of us and it was plenty of room. Food was first class, drinks package in advance at cheapest rate definitely worth it and the service on board from all staff whether cabin attendants, dining staff, pool staff etc was five star. First time on a cruise and I highly recommend it!
