I am so excited. I finally made my deposit for Royal Caribbean, Allure of the Seas. I have heard so many exciting things about this ship that I had to experience it for myself. The only down fall is that its not until Valentines's Day of 2013 , more than a year away, but the good side is that I have until 12/2012 to pay it off little by little. It's going to be a romantic get a way just me and hubby no kids. I am so looking forward to it. Have any of you been on Royal Caribbean and in what ship? Give me any details you want to provide. Looking forward to your feed back...

I just came back last Friday from a Norweigan cruise down the Pacific coast. It was great. The hospitality was really tops. A year ago, we tried Princess cruises, and it was as great as the NCL. We were just planning on trying out Royal Caribbean next time/year. Our uncle was just on one, and he said it was great too. I hope I could save up so we could afford it. Goodluck with yours, and I hope make it!

Isn't cruising great, they told me one time once you start cruising you'll never stop, I personally didn't believe it. But when I first went on my cruise in NCL back in 2008, I have been cruising every year since then, my hubby and I have gotten addicted every year we go to different islands in caribbean. We were a bit spectacle about it because of my children since they are small, but my kids love it, they have been cruising since the age of two & three. So far next year we have a cruise booked with Carnival during the summer (8 days) and now we just booked for the just the two of us in Royal Caribbean (valentine getaway). I hope you do save up for Royal Caribbean, especially Allure of the Seas I hear that it is an experience all by itself.

I am delighted to hear that you have booked a trip on the Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas. It was an excellent idea to book it then pay off a little each month. That is the convenience of the credit card. You have more than one year to pay the amount you owe. You have something special to look forward to in 2013. I haven't ever been on that sort of cruise.

Thank you!!! I am so excited, a little romantic get-a-way with my hubby just the two of us and especially on Royal Caribbean, I have heard that the ship is an experience all by itself. You should consider taking a small cruise, I thought I wouldn't like it, turns out I am addicted to it, and my children love them, we've been cruising every year since 2008. Once you start cruising, you'll never stop. It's funny my boss was the exact same way, he never wanted to cruise, we bugged him so much that he finally went on his first cruise this year back in June as soon as he came back from his cruise, the next day was making reservations for his next one. Him and his wife loved it.

I have been on 9 royal caribbean cruises. There isnt one that wasnt good at all. I have been on the oasis of the seas and the Allure of the seas. I went on the Allure this year. It was fantastic, dont forget to book a speciality resturant. I have done chops, giovannies and the mexican resturant on the boardwalk called Ritas. None of them were bad and were all good. They do charge you to go to these places and you can make all your reservations on royal caribbeans website and that makes it alot easier. Also sign all your waviers online too then you dont have to do it when your on board. Always pay for your coke card online too and the coke bottle will be in your state room waiting for you. You can book shore exercusions online as well and most everything you can do online before you go.

I have taken cruises before in Carnival, Norweigan and Disney, but this my first on Royal. Thanks for recommending the restaurants, I was aware they had them, but I wasn't sure about the cover charges if there were any. I love Mexican food so I will definitely be visiting Ritas. I am not sure if I am booking in excursions since I have been to the Bahamas numerous times, so that I am still debating, but if I do I will definitely be booking them online. I've also heard that they have beautiful live shows inclduing an ice skating show at night. Can't wait!!!

Oh that's great,having a cruise.Never try or been in a cruise but I always wanted to try it,but it is really expensive.My boss always went in a cruise every year and she keep telling that it is really nice.She also showed some pictures which are really nice and great.I hope I could try even for once in the near future.Maybe I should start saving money to make my dream come true.
