Allure of the Seas Boardwalk Balconys
Hello Everyone, We are booked on the Allure soon in a Board Walk Balcony on Deck 9. Anyone one have any comments on the room location? Good, Bad, Noisy. We have been on two RC cruises and have been very happy with ships and service but have never been on the Oasis class ship.

Appreciate any advice!!!!

Having been on Allure I don't think any noise issues will be a problem. You may hear crickets at night and birds during the day, of course piped in, but I did notice some real small birds flying around. It is not in a real noisy area of the ship. Some cabin blaconies have some good views of the back of the ship, where they do the water show and light show...I think you'll enjoy it. January 21st, 2013 07:33 PM

One thing we learned from being on the Allure is that the Central Park balcony cabins are definitely much more quiet than the Boardwalk balcony cabins.

The CP area has all the trees and bushes to absorb the noise, plus there's just less traffic and less activity. Whereas the Boardwalk area does not have anything to absorb the noise and has alot more activity. While some of these cabins afford a nice view of the Aqua Theater, I much prefer the CP area for the quiet.

Just keep in mind that you're always on display with any of these balcony cabins, so you don't have alot of privacy. And you definitely have to keep the curtains closed, especially at night.

I have a boardwalk balcony booked for August 25. I can't wait for this balcony as you get the boardwalk, aqua theater and the ocean. I can't wait.

When we were on the Allure my Daughter had a Boardwalk cabin. Noise was not an issue. She had an aft cabin and a perfect view of the Aqua theater from her balcony. The "inside out cabins are very nice".

In addition to seeing the Aqua theater, you can also see the wake of the ship in back....Those cabins looks really nice...I think they also had some family suites back there as well.

I was on deck 10 boardwalk four cabins from the end. During the day if u sit on balcony you will hear the hustle and bustle. If u want to take a nap close your sliding door and the noise goes away. The aqua show runs at night but once it's over u can see people on the boardwalk; but noise is minimal. Like the above poster stated. You have the boardwalk, the ocean, and the aqua theater. Central Park cabins are too boring and quiet. I had 15 on my cruise. We had people in boardwalk, Central Park, and balcony cabins. I liked the boardwalk the best.

I'm not sure I'd ever book a Central Park or Boardwalk Balcony as I don't see how you can have any privacy in those cabins without having your shades pulled all 7 days? Not sure why I'd pay extra money to basically live in an inside cabin with a balcony attached? For little to sometimes no difference, I'd book an ocean view and have the privacy and natural light all day with out the concern of the other staterooms across the way or passer bys looking into my cabin. It's just my point of view having sailed on Allure four times and always noticing closed shades all day in these cabins, just a question the value.
