Very friendly and attentive staff overall
|Royal Caribbean International Allure of the Seas||Royal Caribbean International Freedom of the Seas|
We found the staff on Allure of the Seas — including waiters, room stewards and the workers in the ship’s spa, fitness area and at the guest relations staff — all very friendly and polite. Since the ship is so large, it can be a challenge for the staff to remember your name—unless you become a regular at a bar or restaurant. But the professional staff responds to needs and inquiries quickly, and any problems we had were resolved promptly.
Daily shows with the Cruise Director are shown on TV, which is a good way to get information about the day’s activities. You can also use Allure’s Cruise Compass to find about events, and, if you need more information, the guest services counter opens at 7 am and is staffed all day. There’s also a future cruises office where you can purchase special cruise sales for your next trip on the Allure of the Seas.

The Allure’s dress code is quite loose most of the time, with “cruise casual” being the norm in most venues on most nights. That said, there are two “formal nights” during each voyage where passengers are encouraged to dress up. We saw a wide range of dressiness on these formal nights, however, with a few men in tuxedos, others in suits, some in jackets with no ties and others wearing just casual short-sleeve shirts.Read More...
