We were a group of five travelers. My husband and I and adult children. The Ship: Beautiful but starting to need some updating. Furniture in common areas is starting to age. Cabin: We had a Central Park Balcony. The location was great. Our A/C didn't work very well. We called and it was fixed and then worked fine. Excursions: Four of us signed up for an excursion with RCCL. The excursion was described as eight hours with six hours of travel time. I figured that meant two hours at our destination. We received notice that we would only have 30-45 minutes at our destination in a note attached to our excursion tickets. One of our group that stayed back told us that RCCL put our group on the last ferry to leave headed for Playa Del Carmen. RCCL needs to take a look at logistics and prioritize to accommodate participants of lengthy excursions. We ended up with about an hour at our destination because the tour company did a great job, but RCCL dropped the ball on this. I'm glad the ship went to Costa Maya, which we love. Get away from the port (tourist trap) and take a taxi to town. It is my happy place. We took a private tour to a resort/beach in Roatan and didn't leave the ship in Nassau. Food/Drinks: The food is fine, but not as good as in years past. Gone are the free tastings before heading to dinner. I also wish there were more venues included, I'm tired of having to pay extra for every little thing. We did have one specialty lunch at Sabor and it was fabulous. We bought the premium drink package and I wouldn't buy it again. I felt obligated to drink a lot more than I normally do to take advantage of the unlimited drinks. Also, with four port days (although we stayed on the ship during one) and having a lot of activities planned, it was hard to get our money's worth. Entertainment: Excellent!!!! We saw all of the shows and they were very good with one exception being one of the Headliners, however, that is personal preference as I overheard many people had liked it so I won't mention the entertainer. Service: We had excellent service from all staff members we encountered. Internet: We didn't buy internet service. Using the internet cafe to check in for our flight cost us $10.00 for one hour of use. There are no more pay by the minute options. Overall: In an attempt to making cruising for everyone and create bigger ships with more activities, some of us long time cruisers are left behind. I miss the ShipShape program (I think that was the name) events where you collected bucks by doing activities and earned RCCL swag. I miss getting a gift when I cruise as a thanks for being loyal, but overall, cruising is still a great way to travel. We didn't use the gym or the spa. I noticed many of the group exercises classes in the gym have a fee. We picked this cruise mostly for the great itinerary. Read Less

This was our 1st Oasis Class Ship and it was just "OK". We were in a Balcony Room on the 14th floor in the front of the ship. My wife and I have now gone on 5 Royal cruises in the past 10 years and have been on Freedom and Adventure of the Seas previously. We've also been on Norwegian and Celebrity. We really looked forward to going on this cruise but left feeling... "eh". Pluses. Getting on and off in Miami is a breeze. The on-line check-in process has improved so no more lines at the terminal. The entertainment. We were split on this. On the smaller ships the Main Theater shows were no reservations needed. Due to the amount of people on Allure EVERYTHING needed reservations. Momma Mia was good as well as the Headliner show. The rest were only "ok". This includes the Aqua show, The food was good in the main dining room. We don't do the specialty dining rooms for dinner. We did do "Johnny Rockets" for lunch which was good. Rooms service and dining room service were good as usual. The promenade shows were fun. We also went to the "Sushi Class" in the Japanese Restaurant and enjoyed that. Cons. The big ship was like sleeping at the Mall. Not the "WOW" factor of the promenade of Freedom or Adventure of the Seas. The ship is just too big and crowded. We're used to the up-sell so it was pretty much the same. Our dinner and housekeeping staff made it a point to ask us to give them "10's" in the after cruise review. This was a first. We've never had staff tell us this before but there must be competition for these jobs. Our biggest con was men were allowed to wear shorts and flip-flops in the main dining room on Formal nights. Dress Code? What dress code! I heard that Royal has recently allowed shorts as part of the Casual Dining nights. On past trips men were stopped at the door. We asked our waiter about this and he said they recently never say anything. Also, we saw less of the cruise director on this ship than the other trips. We didn't even see him until Wednesday. The activities manager should be promoted to a cruise director on one of the ships. She was fun and EVERYWHERE. Lastly, This was a big ship so getting from point "A" to point "B" was a trek. Overall - We can say we experienced the bigger ship but we will go back to the Freedom and Voyager class ships. They are just nicer. We still like Royal better than the others (even though the entertainment on Norwegian is much better). Read Less

I wanted to try the big ship versus the smaller ones and see what it was like. There were no lines and they move people about efficentaly when getting on and off. The commercials make it look like there is so much to do. There was! We are 65 and 71 and did not do the rockwall climbing or slides. We saw other seniors doing the zip line.There are 4 big pools and we swam in the afternoon at 4 when the masses of sunbathers cleared out. There are lots of family’s on this ship. The park on the ship was beautiful and we sat up there every day and ate and/or read. There are many places on this ship to get away from everyone. The running/walking track on deck 5 is covered and goes around the outside of the whole ship. You are in the shade the whole time. All the shows we went to were EXCELLENT! Mama Mia, the aqua show, the comedy club, escape room, quest show, karaoke, Ocean AriaAqua show were all very entertaining. We wanted a balcony cabin for privacy and views. Royal Carribeans price was lower than Norwegians. They get a 10 for disembarking and visual recognition when going thru customs. No lines and we were done in 1 minute! Overall, a great time and would do it again. Read Less
