Is the Allure the sister to Oasis? Limit to 5... (shorter posts lol)

Yep the newer and bigger (OK- by 2 inches, haha!) sister! My aunt and uncle sailed the inaugural in November and they said it was astounding, amazing, wonderful, awesome, and all adjectives in between. Looking forward to the whole Dreamworks thing too, see if it can measure up to the big cheese (in that aspect, I doubt it, but it should be fun nevertheless!)

Cruise Criticers would NEVER stand for a TR that takes a few months like this one did. Over there I do things differently, I actually write the whole thing first and post it at once. I don't prefer that but they would eat me alive otherwise. Just not the same atmosphere as here! LOL!

If it is "5 o'clock somewhere," does that mean it can be 5 o'clock anywhere and all the time?

Okay - I have to post. I've just read this entire TR and then went and read your first one. Your older dd looked EXACTLY like your younger one!! (And I think they both look like you!) I loved your TR!!! The pictures are amazing. Makes me want to take the exact same excursions you did! (Oh - and if you need another cruise- please consider the MR 9/25 Wonder!!!! I'd love to meet you!)

Anyway, we're booked on the Oasis next year, so I'd love to read your TR on the Allure. Can you link it here?

Hi Jennifer! Thanks so much for reading! Isn't it funny how alike they look (except for the lighter hair and blue eyes Sarah has, otherwise she still looks so much like the other two did when they were toddlers). I looked back at the old TRs recently too and the pictures are something else. Can't believe how much they've grown!!! (and me too, sadly! )

Thank you so much, they were wonderful excursions...I do highly recommend them. (IMO you can't go wrong!!!)

9/25 this year? Ah, I would love to join you but that is right when we will be on Allure (9/18/11) or if 2012 Fantasy (9/22/12)...it's a great week to cruise!

Oh I definitely will, there is a lot of interest in the new ships, we are very excited to check that baby out! (We sailed Freedom class RCCL-Independence of the Seas- last year and LOVED it, so I expect we will be delighted with Allure!)

Thanks again for reading, so glad you enjoyed it and have an amazing cruise!!

Just finished reading your trip report. Wow - it was a really great week, wasn't it?

I didn't make it to Castaway Cay because of my stomach bug - your pictures look great. Could I borrow the ones of the Black Pearl? My parents got one shot of it but it's not very good.

We skipped breakfast on the last day as well (got off the ship and got Dunkin Donuts coffee) but we disembarked as soon as they opened it up - around 7:15 - 7:30 in the morning. If you want to get off early, go then - there was no line up and no waiting.

Just got back from my Back to Back on the Carnival Dream - they were some great cruises and I can see that different cruise lines offer different experiences (all similar but the differences make each trip special). I hope your Allure cruise is wonderful. It looks to be a great ship with a lot of different activities.

Of course, anything you want please go ahead and grab!!! You should be able to save it by right clicking, if not you can follow the link to photobucket and download it there.

Yep, I knew we had just waited too long. Funny how even though we loved the food on the ship so much this time how good the stuff you are used to "back home" tastes..like Mickey D's and Dunkin Donuts!

That's right! So what did you think about the C-Dream? A coworker of mine went on it and she did not like it at all. But then, she got VERY seasick and was miserable the entire time, plus I had hyped her up so much on how great cruising was (it was her first time) I think maybe her expectations were unrealistic.

We are so excited for Allure. I love Disney so much but man...this is looking like it is going to be one amazing cruise! They do so much Dreamworks stuff too...ice show, aqua show, even character breakfast. It will be fun!!

Wow, what a great trip reported filled with helpful tips and lovely pictures.

The pictures with your older kids dolting on their little sissy really made me smile.

Oh they do love their little sister so much, they are awesome kids (not that I'm biased or anything! )

Thank you so much for reading! I'm glad you enjoyed it and it was helpful!

Just wanted to let everyone know we recently returned from our RCCL Allure of the Seas cruise!

It was really amazing, and if you don't know much about this ship and want to find out more about this architectural marvel, or about the Dreamworks Experience onboard and how it compares to DCL, well be sure to check out my new Trip Report:

Shrek Takes On Mickey: The Dreamworks Experience Aboard Allure of the Seas 9/18-25

Hope to see you all there!

I know it is more than a year later but I just had to say I really enjoyed your TR. I started out reading your Allure TR and then found this one. We are going on our first family cruise on the Magic and so I really enjoyed your Magic one. Great writing! I felt like I was there with you guys.
