We've been debating going on the Allure for a little while now, but this report is pretty much making it happen for us. We just went on the Mariner a few months back, so I think a year end cruise on the Allure will be properly timed!

^ If you liked the Voyager class of ship (Mariner), then you'd LOVE the Oasis class! We did Mariner last year (and I'd still love to do that ship again), but Allure/Oasis really is in a different league. Crazy!

Yeah, we absolutely loved the Mariner, but we went without the kids. Next cruise, the girls will be old enough to really enjoy it, so we'll take them along, and it looks like the Allure will be the winner for that. My girls will sit on that damn carousel all day, lol.

BTW, did you guys see The Quest yet? We did that on Mariner, and the section that I was captain of won. Many blackmail worthy pics of me in drag were the result, lol.

Thanks again for the report!

You guys should try the Carnival Magic-coming out in May of this year. It will have the longest Twister slide yet & another Drain Pipe slide. Allure Of The Seas really needs a coaster to top it all off! They should build a new deck with a giant kick ass coaster spanning the whole entire deck! & A full round of mini golf-18 holes! & A giant ass waterslide. Then it will be complete! ;)

Last week's Disney cruise or this one from RCCL? Wow can't decide between the two. Amazing report Robb, thanks for taking the time out of your vacation to post this.

Robb, what trivia questions were they using? I ask because I wrote trivia questions for both Oasis and Allure and am curious if they are still being used? I also did a word scramble activity for them to use on the large video screen.

Thanks

They had this whole skit of a shark chasing a guy in a life raft! It was both slightly disturbing and awesome at the same time.


I must now see this show.

I've been ill all week, and have not been eating, so the food pictures are really getting to me! Someone should bring me some warm chocolate cake. Stupid Ice Bat won't make me any...
