So cruising on the Allure or the Oasis is just a drive away.

Lucky you. I have to fly to all the ports.

I have flown to most of my cruises. I did drive from Connecticut to Florida twice, but when I retired I move to Palm Coast, Florida.
We have been here since November, 2011.

I love living here. Weare situated between Daytona and St. Augustine. It's only an hour and 15 minutes to Orlando. Lot's of things to do.
Palm Coast is a quiet community and we live 10 minutes from Flagler Beach. We would not go back north to live.
The cost of living is cheaper here and I can grow plants all year long. We do go back for visits. We will be flying up next Friday for a ten day visit.

It was fine living in Ct. when I was working, since I did have a good job, and New England has a lot of beauty. But I never did like the Cold and my DW hates winter even more than I do.

So now we are happy Florida retirees.

Yes, Florida is a great place for us older folks.

It's easier to drive to our cruises now.

CQ, is there much difference between sailing on the Explorer as opposed to sailing on the Allure?

My cruises on Royal have been on the Liberty twice the Oasis twice and once on the Allure.
But I really would love to try the Allure again.

TM Liberty is a blown up version of Explorer. Explorer has no FLowrider Liberty does.....

Of course then there is Allure which is in a world of her own....Aqua theater, Dream works, Dazzles, central park, boardwalk etc. etc. etc. etc.

CQ, I find that once you sail on the Oasis and or the Allure, you become spoiled.

We love Celebrity Cruises, but after doing the big Royal ships it's hard to get used to the small ships.

CQ, I hope that you had a great birthday.


When you can you should celebrate your birthday on a Royal ship.

I can't believe that it was almost 5 years ago that I celebrated mine on the Liberty.

CruiseQueen> Why do you refer to Carnival Breeze as "WalMart" in your cruise history? I tried looking for a review, but couldn't find any by you in the CM Cruise Reviews section. I have sailed both the Dream and Freedom (back-to-back on both), which are both older sister ships to Breeze. I am curious to find out what aspects you found to be WalMar-tish when compared to your RCI experiences, because I hope to go back to RCI again soon (hopefully next January).

Hi Shipshore....Carnival Breeze for us was a watered down, low budget ship...We thought we would give a brand new Carnival ship a try after all it's a fun ship? The entertainment/activities are horrible. There are 8 singers and dancers and they put on 4 shows during the week..The Brits, Motown, Divas..can't remember the 4th. 30 minute shows basically the same type of show just different music. Then the Hasbro game show and Karaoke....not my type of after dinner entertainment. I prefer to be entertained by professionals not my fellow cruisers.

Music....oh my if you have a passion for music and dance like I do Breeze is not for you...one band that is not bad on deck 5 but nobody dances....poolside is a DJ no band......and the DJ in the nightclub starts out with dance music for the first hour then it's all hardcore rap. Not many dance classes either.

There were nights we had nothing to do. The painful part was when we docked in Falmouth the Allure was next to us and we were sad and realized we were on the wrong ship....

The service around the ship was not like Royal. The comedy club is a joke...we never got in to see the show the line was way too long. They need to put the comedy show in the showroom or go by reservations like Royal does. Lido breakfest buffet lines were long. There were two very close to being fights thank goodness staff broke it up....first one during the deck party. second one was when we were in line to get into the comedy show a guy in line starts screaming and cursing about not being able to get in another guy tells him to shut up at that point we left the line since we were not getting in anyway there was no more room plus the two guys were getting closer and closer to each other. That situation was scary hanging out with the locals in Jamaica is not.

and some credit where it's due...our MDR waiter and assistant on Breeze were very good....the cabin was great we had the 1 and 1/2 bath cabin loved it. alot of closet space too. Food was good same as Royal (however I'm not a foodie I calorie count and pick healthy choices) The water slides were fun and the 3D thrill ride. The teen program however was horrible. The piano bar entertainer Ron Pass was good...we are not piano bar type cruisers but there was nothing else to do.

Allure and Breeze are like night and day....Allure is loaded with music and dance....Breeze hardly any music and dance.

The Breeze is a nice looking ship...would compare it more to a Voyager class ship.

Breeze will work for a cruiser that is looking for a very basic cruise....cheap prices, good food, sit around the pool all day, drink and gamble at night. And never saw Funship Freddy...he might have gotten let go may not be in the budget anymore.

It's good to have choices in cruiselines.......

What's an awesome cruise experience for one cruiser may not be for the next.....all depends what the cruiser is looking for in his/her cruise vacation....

Happy Cruising!!

I would just like to add that once yousail on the Oasis or the Allure, other ships will pale in comparison.

It's not easy to step back from A+ to something of a lesser grade.

I will stick with ships that are between A+ and B- and will stay away from C D and F ships....

I am at a point in life where we enjoy our cruises, but I don't really need to cruise that often, because we do other trips as well, I will only cruise on my favorite ships.

My future cruises will be on Royal or Celebrity.

Sometimes it's good to take a break from cruising and do land vacations. Gotta mix it up sometimes.

Mostly will stick to Royal however NCL Breakaway is on my "to cruise" list. Shall see what the reviews are like once they start rolling in....

A little collage I made from my A+ Allure cruise.....
