Any input would be greatly appreciated!
Also make sure you are comparing apples to apples stateroom-wise. I didn't realize it at first but I was comparing a 5A to one of RCCL's lower level balcony rooms.
We are booked in a 5A, deck 9 oceanview verandah. Western itinerary, week of 4/12 2A/1C is $5377. (Yikes!)
Allure 4/13 Eastern itinerary, "superior oceanview stateroom with balcony" $4577.93. Boardwalk and central park view rooms are cheaper, but I wanted to compare comparable staterooms. Soda card about $150 (since there is soda included on the fantasy only fair to add it in). My difference is $650, not taking into consideration the $250-ish onboard credits.
There are a lot more dining options on the Allure (free and fee-based) but I think a lot more kid things for my son on the Fantasy.
On a side note, I am both happy and grateful that this is my biggest problem at the moment lol!
