I feel like we got the best deal for our money using AffordableTours.
We love afforrdable tours and LeVon. The agents are very helpful, knowledgeable and accommodating.
Because of the size of the ship, the layout was a bit confusing at times. There is no easy way from forward to aft on some of the decks. The staff was phenomenal. There were plenty of amenities and entertainment options, so it didn't feel crowded after embarkation. The shows were great, and there were several to choose from, but the smaller venues meant that you had to reserve a seat to be sure to get in. The stand-up comedians, for example, were completley completely booked for every show. I highly recommend getting the Royal Caribean app. It was a huge help for locating food, booking excursions, and keeping us on time.
Royal Caribbean cruise is perfect for a family cruise. We have always done smaller ships and we were worried about going on a cruise with 5000 plus passengers. The good news is that there was virtually no waiting. hey did an excellent job.
Allure of the Seas operated by Royal Caribbean is a very beautiful, large ship with a lot of people. I will look for a smaller ship next time that doesn't go to St. Maarten or San Juan Puerto Rico. The tour we took in San Juan was disappointing to say the least. Tours outside of San Juan might better.
Reminders to customers to make sure to pay attention to discounts offered by Royal Caribbean on packages. They do have expiration dates. We missed out on 25% discounts do to our lack of attention to the details.
I have a business with Affordable Tours for more than 5 years. I am always coming back because of Jody. He is very professional, thoughtful and amazing travel agent. I found the service and response of Jody to be excellent. I wanted to thank you very much for planning our last trip to Caribbean. It was amazing and exceeded my expectations! We had a wonderful time and were very pleased with your service, Jody!
Thank you Jody!You are awesome!
I want to thank our travel consultant at Affordable Tours for helping to make my first cruise a memorable one. I traveled with one of my adult children and we had a fabulous time.
I highly recommend cruising Royal Caribbean's Allure. The crew do a remarkable job satisfying cruisers. Almost everyone had a huge smile on their face and you could tell they loved their jobs. The shows were remarkable, but I highly recommend you book your shows before boarding the Allure; as they are filled extremely fast once you wait to board the ship for your booking. We selected Your Time dining, which we loved. We were able to change times we ate if we had a show to see during our usual eating time. Also, if you must attend a show earlier than the usual time for eating; simply tell the crew when being seated that you have a show and give the time of the show. You will be seated and given the menufor the meal immediately. Your meal will be served quite quickly to accomodate your schedule. If you need anything additional in your cabin, notify the cabin person and he or she will bring it to you ASAP. We found a waiter whose service was impecable; an we requested to be seated at one of his tables. There was no hesitation on behalf of the people seating us to assign us to his area The area of Haiti we visited had beautiful well maintained beaches. We did not stay there to eat, as it was very hot and humid. Instead, we returned to the ship for cooler temperatures. I attended shopping seminars and they were very informative. She noted several places she recommended us to shop. Also, she told us how to choose diamonds, etc. Almost each evening, she gave us a charm for the free braclet given by Diamonds International. Of course, the bracelet is cheap, but an excellent gift for young girls. Pure vanilla can be bought at each port. I found that this is an excellent gift for your family or friends who love baking, as this is something they will use.
We had a wonderful time! See you on our next cruise.
Affordabletours did a fine job helping me book my cabin and one for my son and his bride. Thank you very much!
Great trip with good friends on an outstanding ship, Allure of Seas (RCI) ! So much to see and do just on board this ship.
