Default Allure is BIG

Just came in on the Poesia and the Allure came in afterwards. It is BIG!

Interesting articles in local newspapers about her.

Yes Snoozeman, the Allure is so big that you would think it came from Texas.

But seriously we have sailed on her sister-ship The Oasis and those big beautiful ships make for a fun-filled cruise.
I am very happy to say that I have my Allure cruise (1-16-2010) all paid up.

It sounds wonderful. I just read Paul's article about her. She really made the other ships look small.

Once you sail on those big ships, the other ones seem very small.

I am not a great writer, but I will let you all know how things went.

It will be hard to top the Oasis, because I got to meet ( ready2gonow ) Darlene and her husband Don on our cruise in april.

I do hope to meet other cruisemates someday.

Default Photo from the Allure!

We love Don & Darlene. We have two booked with them coming up in 2011.

Here's a photo taken from the Allure when they met the Oasis. Notice all the crew watching. (I have a friend on the Allure)

It is good, looks like dawn or sunset and the Oasis is coming up along side. My friend took it. He's a bartender on board. Notice that the crew doesn't wear their uniforms, which makes since, but I never really thought about it. I do see a few chiefs hats though.

Cool Ready For The Allure

We did the Oasis last December and just booked the Allure in May 2011 using our free certificate from our RCCL credit card. It will be nice to compare the two.
