Thumbs up Brief Review of Allure of the Seas
We just finished traveling on the Allure of the Seas. It was very good and is in the running for "best cruise" we have taken. In case it helps anybody, here are a few brief Pros and Cons. Generally speaking, there was very little to "complain" about on this ship. It was a nice vacation!

Pros
  • Embarking and disembarking is the fastest, and most organized that we have ever experienced
  • The entertainment was top notch
  • The surf similator was a lot of fun
  • There was lots to do on the ship
  • There were never lines to get back on the ship from port which is amazing considering how many passengers are on the ship

Cons
  • The lines for professional photos were too long and we didn't get a chance to take very many of them
  • There were lines for the elevators fairly often
  • The dining room staff seemed very rushed and stressed--they got the job done, but didn't partake in the usual "How was your day?" type of small-talk
  • The room was smaller than what we were used to and had much less storage space
  • We were traveling with two kids and the rooms didn't have bunk beds--they slept in a double bed together and "bugged" each other a lot of the time
