Ah, the donut shop on Allure.  I remember we'd have a full breakfast. Then headed to the Boardwalk immediately after and had a donut for dessert.  Only on vacation!

 

Having such a stressful day at work today, but those water photos are really helping.  So relaxing and peaceful!...

Amazing review. Seems like you're having a great time so far.

 

Glad it’s helping your work day! Thanks for following along!

Today’s lunch was at Chops and of course it was simply amazing. Took awhile to get our food because today is the Pinnacle lunching with the officers. Pinnacle luncheon gets a different menu than the traditional Chops menu, complete with lobster tails.

Alas our menu as we are not Pinnacle, however sitting right next to their luncheon was just like being there. That’s the closest we’ll ever get to be Pinnacle. 😀

Guess this is one way to use the Unlimited Dining Package. I thought about going over after to Johnny Rockets for some onion rings but it’s time to go quickly shower and head to the Diamond Lounge for a couple dirty martinis before dinner. 

 

 

There simply is not enough time in a day to get everything done each day on a cruise. 😀

Food looks delicious. Where is everyone? Port Day? Looking for a review of the Diamond Lounge. Thanks for all the excellent info.

 

Today’s a day at sea. Most times these Oasis class ships will not feel as though there are 6000+ people on it.

 

No complaints on the Diamond Lounge. They get extra points too as they know how to make a dirty martini. Read my old reviews and you’ll see not all of them know how. 😀

 

 

Thanks for following along!

Thank  you  so  very  much  for  taking the time to share  your  experience  with  us !   It looks  like  the  weather  is  absolutely  amazing !    We sail out on June  2nd  and are so excited I can't  stand  it !  

 

It appears  that  the  chair hogs are out in full  force .... Oink Oink !   But I  guess that is  to be expected on sea days . 

 

Thanks  again !   And  keep  up the  great  work !    Loving this  review !

My friends got their gift today. Bracket made from plastic trash in the ocean. Each bracelet represents a certain amount of the ocean being cleaned up and then making various plastic bracelets.

Its been an amazing week, Allure is ever so beautiful in every way. There is not one thing of substance to complain about. You’re in for a super cruise. Thanks for following along!

I see Pez was the top cruiser. We have been on a couple of cruises with him on Allure. Surprised Andrew has never mentioned cruising with him, he is quite the flow rider.

 

Enjoying your review and missing being on a cruise.

 

Cruised with Pez more than a few years ago on Allure before I started doing live reviews. Nice guy.  On the same cruise we also sailed with Walter, a gentleman who must have been in his 80s and was out flow riding.
