  1. I am responsible for making our extended family trip reservations and decisions. I chose to go on Allure this year because there is so much to do and we were kind of bored on Carnival last year. However, since there are so many of us, we have to eat in the free restaurants because I have to stay on a budget for the family. We have hungry teenage boys and I booked this cruise for them to eat and enjoy the food. They are not food snobs, but we were not impressed with the food on Carnival last year (except for Guys Burgers, they didn't stop talking about that). I have researched food on board and it seems like the dining room and Windjammer are not great? We were on the Adventure of the Seas a couple of years ago and thought that the food was much better than Carnival. Actually, we really enjoyed Adventure. We went on that ship twice and both times we had great food and amazing staff. In fact, our server from the year before remembered us and came to visit our table a couple of times. Can someone share their experience with the Dining room food on Allure, please? I could change ships, but I got a pretty decent deal on the Allure and there seems to be a lot to do on the ship. Uuuuggggg, the pressure!
  2. Who is the current Headliner on the Allure?
  3. My cruise isn’t until Nov, so I cannot reserve shows yet. But I would like to know some things about the various shows in order to, at least, reserve our dining time. Is Mamma Mia more than one day during the week and what time does it start? Do you still need reservations for the ice show? Is there more than one ice show? Do you need reservations for the water show (at the end of the boardwalk)? ibrealize this info can change, but it will be a big help to me for now, anyway. Thanks!
  4. How do you like it? I've heard good and bad! We are on the Anthem next, but looking at the Allure for a 2020 trip!
  5. We just booked rooms 9102 and 9104. Anyone been in those rooms that can tell me if the window is the round one or a rectangular type ? thank you!
  6. I know they are practically same ship with the exception of shows and departures. I reading on Harmony and see the Solarium is different , no pool but water misters above that I don’t get. Is it a water misting area? These are the little differences I’m wanting to find out about. From pictures the solarium doesn’t look as nice as the Allure...maybe it’s just the photos I’ve seen. If you’ve sailed both what are the little differences between the two. Harmony doesn’t have the Italian restaurant in Central Park from what I can tell , that was the best meal we had on Allure . I see Starbucks is on the Boardwalk? thanks in advance!
  7. Can someone please tell me what the current shows are currently on the Allure of the Seas? Which ones require reservations? We're 75 days from sailing and haven't been able to see a list of shows, much less make any reservations. Thanks!
  8. We are leaving Feb 17 on Allure of the Seas and am wondering if we will be able to use our i phones to text each other while on the ship without buying the internet package. Thanks for any insight, I am reading conflicting info when I search. Thanks in advance...
  9. Nov 1 ,2020 Allure of the Seas sails from Barcelona Spain on a 14 night trans Atlantic voyage to Miami . Although we have sailed many times on RCCL & Celebrity ships ,we never sailed on a ship of this size . We would book into a 4D ocean balcony cabin ,if we do book this cruise We would appreciate from those who have sailed this huge ship their likes & dislikes while sailing in Allure of the Seas .Also how would you rank the food quality & service We have done to date 81 cruises ;but ,never in a ship this size & really enjoyed Celebrity & Holland America cruise lines for different reasons Thanks in advance for your replies 😋
  10. Going on the Allure on a family (6 peeps) cruise in May. Haven't been on RCL since 2003, so I have a few questions. 1. Are there online documentations to fill out? So far the web site says I have no check in docs yet. When do they pop up? 2. In the general info on the web site, it says that extension cords are prohibited. Does this include a 6 in 1 non-surge protected short cord? Should I put it in my checked luggage or my carry on? 3. Do we need to make advanced reservations for entertainment events (Momma Mia, Beatles, etc)? 4. Do we need to make advanced reservations for the main dining room (6 top)? 5. How diligent is RCL for looking for booze in checked luggage? Shhh, have it down pat on Princess 🙂 Thanks for any info
  11. What time does embarkment on the Allure normally begin. Also, at what time can you get to your room. Thank you: Matt
  12. Do the cabins have robes in them? If not, are they available for the asking?
  13. I just switched to this room at no additional charge, keep hearing about aft rooms so thought I'd give it a try. Anyone stayed in this room recently? I've read some older posts, love that there's a secret balcony next door that doesn't get used a lot. Being further from elevator isn't a problem as we love to walk. This Ukigirl can't wait, the countdown begins, woohoo!
  14. Hi there. I had a question about coastal kitchen. I have heard the menu is not very big and if you have finicky eaters (16 year old) it may not be the place to go. Will they make items not on the menu ? Obtain something from another restaurant?
  15. Does anyone know if the Allure still has the Prohibition Party for 2019?
  16. I got the following email from RCL, Dear Guest, We are reaching out to let you know that, regrettably, we have to cancel your Allure of the Seas February 9th, 2020 cruise, as it has been chartered. We know this news is disappointing and apologize for the impact to your vacation. How do you charter a ship that already has a hard schedule? LOL. Anyway, it is giving us a chance to possibly(but not for sure) go with another cruise line. Their alternate options offer nothing for the inconvenience. And the one date we would consider(Feb.2nd) is not even offered. Sometimes when you get a bad feeling about something you should go with it. Any thoughts on this? Thanks, Brent

    Ovation v Allure

    I have sailed on Allure once, and it was my favorite cruise ship to date. I have an Alaskan cruise booked on Ovation for June. If there is someone who has been on both of these classes of RCI ships, I would be interested in any kind of comparison--pro or con--of these two ships.
  18. Just booked a cruise on the Allure for Sept. 22, 2019 and the dining time for main seating is 5:15pm. Never had that early of a time and was wondering if anyone who has been on it recently can confirm what time was their dining times. By the way, this is not My Time Dining, but regular main seating...thanks
  19. Does anyone know which nights are formal nights on the Allure OTS? I'll be on the January 27th cruise and want to make some spa appointments on a non-formal night sea day. Thanks. Beth
  20. Do they have a Past Guest Party on Allure? Just curious!
  21. Looking at a TA on the Allure. Is there a Diamond Lounge where you can get Cappuccino?
  22. I searched and read a thread from 2017 about whether Diamond happy hour drinks available in MDR on various ships, also if they are confined to certain bars. Consensus was that they can be had in dining rooms, even specialty restaurants, but not in certain bars, such as Rising Tide. We are Diamond newbies, going on Allure very soon and wanted to check to see if this is still the case or policy has changed. Thanks!
  23. I know the obvious answer is “under the bed”. What is the height of the opening under the bed? Curious how “tall” the suitcase can be.
  24. Hi, Everyone! We were on Anthem in April and had success putting a small case of bottled water in a reusable grocery bag with a luggage tag and sending it through with our checked luggage. Wondering if anyone has had recent success with this on Allure. We have a beverage package, so not a huge deal, but it's nice to have a stash of bottled water in our fridge without having to order one with every drink. Thanks! Laura
  25. I tried looking on earlier threads... is the SetSail on the Royal App being used for boarding now? Or do I need to print a copy?
