  3. Allure of the Seas
We have sailed before on other cruise lines and wanted to try Royal Caribbean Allure of the seas... we did not pick the itinerary thats for sure.. We chose the Allure for the size and things to do on board.. Lets start at the beginning.. checking and boarding 100 % perfect.... walk around the ship and as very impressed.. We had 2 balcony rooms adjoining overlooking Boardwalk.. NEVER NEVER DO THIS...... We did not have a choice as we needed adjoining room for our daughters (18 & 20). We could never sit outside because of the noice level. it was very bad.. i took Video and brought it to guest services and they told me that they could not do anything. Next.. the food.. on this occasion they had private functions in the dining room for lunches, so this ended up making out wait time to 20 mins to be seated... Once seated we were always rushed because it took so long in the wait line. So after all this we decided to use windjammer, food was good and no real issue.. but not really what we paid for... We also had the soda package and to find a machine that was not out of service was a real issue and to try and get serviced at the bar with a soda package, they look at you like you were a lower class quest. We only had 3 ports of call so spent alot of time on the ship... the ship is truly amazing for what it is.. but they cannot handle that many people at dining and trying to get a sun chair... I can send anyone a video of the Noice issue (really bad....) let me know..

Very disappointing...
