After cruising primarily with Carnival we're going to go on Allure, I did go on Royal one time years ago and it was not nearly as good as Carnival but I know things have changed over the years.
As Donna said I think it's what you want out of a cruise for me all the things on Allure/ Oasis are not what I'm looking for in a cruise, but never the less I want to try it once,I might like FOTS better. The only thing we experienced cut backs on with Carnival was the food & MDR service,everything else was fine, I don't cruise for the entertainment . I'll see after I cruise Allure
If I feel the same way.
