  1. we just did a B2B with him on Allure. He was invisible, but when he was out in public (photos on formal night) he seemed interested in the lives of his crew. His attitude trickles down through the ranks and I'd have to say that Allure has dedicated friendly accomodating crew.
  2. Kind of. All shuttles come to an island area across the street where people are being picked up in private cars. The vans are black so since you're under the parking structure it's a little dark for these old eyes to see. The pick up areas are numbered, I think we were to meet at #14 or 15 but they're not well marked. It was the driver who saw us looking lost who hollered out to us first. I'm not sure about the $30 pp. I thought we paid $25 pp but that was last year, it could have gone up.
  3. yes. In fact at Hobby, he was about to call us to find out where we were. My instructions were to go to the pick up spot at 10:00 am, he was going to call us at 9:45 as he was ready to go! Coming back, EVERYONE was delayed getting into and out of the port because a train was hooking and unhooking cars. Someone said that happens about every 2-3 weeks. The second time I sailed out of Galveston, we had no delays by train.

  5. my DH has celiac, if we eat in the MDR you're supposed to select your meal for the next day so they will make it GF. We found that to be a PITA so we just eat in WJ. Some ships have a separate food island labeled GF, mostly you need to know what you can eat. On Allure, anywhere we ate he had to ask for GF bread (and it was the best GF bread he's ever had!).
  6. RoyalUp told my TA that they hold cabins out of inventory to use for the Royal Up program, they can make more money filling them that way than by giving free upgrades or low cost upgrades at the last minute.
  7. It's been out experience that they scoop ice cream in Windjammer every night for dinner. At least 2 flavors and on special nights they may have 3.

  9. the spreadsheet has March 20 as a rotation date, so you're saying it's going to be March 30 instead?
  10. I saw that too but I couldn't get the I'd to show. Are you sure it's Allure and not the Oasis charter?
  11. buy now. They jack the price for Spring Break knowing all those college kids only want to do one thing on a cruise...well two things but kids might read this.
  12. Actually they do provide the bio sheet (Behind the Name Tag). You pick one up at the rack where the Cruise Compasses are displayed. They don't automatically place them in your room anymore.
