So excited to read your new review. I came back to cruising. 4 years ago because I was lured by Allure. I read your review several times in preparation for that trip and found it very enjoyable and informative. Look forward to all of your reviews even if I'm not considering that ship. Last April I tried Oasis and loved that too. PS 30 days 'til Anthem, but I think Oasis class will still be my number 1!

We took a few photos of the Opal theater.

For some reason these remind me of Alice in Wonderland.

We decided to head upstairs and get a few pictures of the Spa. That is something that I failed to do with my Allure review. Then again, I was just getting started in my blogging career.

There was one nice lady at the counter, I asked her if we could tour around. She said, sure, but she was not sure if it was open. One thing that I noticed was that they did not have any private tours here like all the other cruise lines do. Maybe it was because it was still rather early? I am not sure, but in the end, I like it better this way than the high pressure sales tours.

 

I thought the spa and the gym were both sub-par at best. I have no idea why they decided to place them all the way down there, so hidden from sunlight. And instead place the kids clubs on the top decks, where the spa is usually on other vessels. I am sure the kids don't appreciate the natural sunlight, as much as the people attending the spa would. It was just a little odd to see it like that.

 

The Gym did have some windows, but they are portholes vs the full glass ones on the other ships. Oh, no hydrotherapy pool on this ship either.

 

So mom and I started our self guided tour just walking around. I forgot to tell you, I still had that 30lbs backpack with me. So yeah, I tried to make it quick. The rooms were supposed to open @ 1pm.

 

Here is the tour.

I asked to take my bag down the stairs. Nope, that was a no go, she just gave me that look, LoL.

Gambee,

 

Glad to see this review. We did our first Oasis class cruise on the Allure last month. Your previous review was extremely helpful. BTW agree, the Central Park area, Trellis and Vintages, were our favorite spots on Allure.

 

Cheers

Tom

I am really not sure their thermal suite is worth it. Granted, it is half the price of NCL ones, but the NCL ones are 6x the space and amenities.

 

I will let you be the judge.

It is a rather small area for a ship this size, don't you think so?

Around the corner is the Gym.

Like I said, why isn't this area up on top? That is beyond me, the Gym is not even that big.

The Gym can be accessed from the running track, that is a really nice feature. Although one that I did not partake in :D

We finished our tour and went back out to the Spa waiting area. There is a little smoothie there and I got a few pictures of the area and what they offer.

Redbull $4.50.... They are really maximizing their profits.

With our rooms being not ready yet, we decided to go to the kids clubs and check it out.

 

I was dying to get rid of my backpack!

On Deck 14 you have a nice view of central park.

The younger kids club is on deck 14, on deck above the bridge, and one below the Solarium. Like I said, this is prime Spa area!

 

That said, the area was well appointed and decorated.
