I recently won tickets off radio from Pop2Life to cruise the Allure of the Seas in Jan 2011. I've never cruised before but have wanted to all my life. This trip will be for me and my 9 year old daughter who will turn 10 while we are in Costa Maya. We are really looking forward to our trip in 2 weeks and I wanted to say thank you to all who have posted about this ship. It has been real informative and I'm hoping to have the time of our lives. Added benefit: Taylor Swift will be performing onboard during our trip. My daughter is a HUGE fan of Taylor Swift and is truly excited to get to see her!
I do have a question I'm hoping someone could answer. When visiting ports of call, should I already have cash on me or do they take credit cards? Is there somewhere I can access a machine to obtain cash onboard?
