  1. The $47 price in the Cruise Planner includes the Buy One, get 50% off Second discount. The $50 price you saw before was a 20% off deal and now you see $47 for this 25% off deal. The discounts you are seeing are off the full price of the package if you were to purchase on board the ship.
  2. The June 2016 cruise compass is the itinerary you are looking for. I posted the link below. https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/cruise-compasses/allure-of-the-seas/sun-2016-06-26-0000 Also, not sure if you are interested but there is a blog by @mpoole3 from June 2016 for the same itinerary. https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2016/05/31/live-blogging-allure-of-the-seas-preamble https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2016/06/06/allure-of-the-seas-live-blog-day-1-embarkation-day https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2016/06/07/allure-of-the-seas-live-blog-day-2-sea-day https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2016/06/08/allure-of-the-seas-live-blog-day-3-sea-day https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2016/06/09/allure-of-the-seas-live-blog-day-4-st-maarten https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2016/06/10/allure-of-the-seas-live-blog-day-5-san-juan https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2016/06/11/allure-of-the-seas-live-blog-day-6-labadee https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2016/06/12/allure-of-the-seas-live-blog-day-7-sea-day
  3. Below is a link to all the cruise compasses for Allure. The most recent one is from March of this year. Enjoy your cruise! https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/cruise-compass?ship=274
  4. In the past, we have booked direct with RCCL and via another TA. This year we switched to MEI and are happy with our decision. So far, our TA has changed one sail date, repriced two cruises and resolved an issue with our OBC not showing the correct amount. Each of these changes would have required a call to RCCL, but instead it was a quick email to our TA. Plus, like @twangster said, the TA mainly helps with the booking process so you will retain complete control over your cruise planner purchases. You can always give MEI (or another TA) a try to see how you like the process. We started out by transferring a direct cruise booking over to MEI. Once we were happy with our decision, we began booking with them too.
  5. When we sailed this past February on Brilliance, there were no couples message available in the Cruise Planner. Once we boarded, we stopped by the spa table and was able to book the message we wanted at the time we wanted. Also, the spa offers many discounts so be sure to ask (i.e. Crown & Anchor, port day specials, etc.).
  6. Please add October 28, 2018 (Oasis) and September 8, 2019 (Harmony).
  7. Just received an email from our TA stating we saved $448 plus we got an extra $25 OBC by applying the current promotions.
  8. No, the main dining room is available for you each night of your cruise. During formal night, the majority of guests will dress in more formal attire (i.e. sport coats, cocktail dresses, etc). Non-formal nights are more casual. You have the 5:30 seating so if you choose to dine in the main dining room, just show up a few minutes before 5:30 and you will be seated at your table (dining room & table number will be printed on your Seapass card). If you choose not to dine in the main dining room, you can enjoy dinner at one of the other free locations (i.e. Sorrento's, Windjammer Marketplace, SeaPlex Dog House, etc) or one of the locations that charge an additional fee (i.e. Izumi, Chops Grille, Johnny Rockets, etc). You only need to eat dinner at 5:30 if you choose to dine in the main dining room. For example, if you dine in the Windjammer, you can show up anytime during their dinner hours. I suggest trying the different restaurants to see which one you like best. Each can offer a different atmosphere and selections of foods. When we cruise with our kids, we tend to eat dinner in the Windjammer because it offers us more flexibility and a bigger selection of foods. When we cruise without our kids, we like to eat in the main dining room so we can sit back and relax more. The main buffet on the ship is the Windjammer and it is open for breakfast, lunch & dinner. If you want something quicker, you can grab pizza at Sorrento's or a hot dog at SeaPlex Dog House.
  9. Yes, there will be one formal night on a 5 night cruise. I've included a link below that has some great information on formal nights. https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2018/01/01/everything-you-need-know-about-formal-night-royal-caribbean-cruise
  10. In order to see our kids reservation, I manually linked the reservation and selected one of my kids when prompted. Once I did this, their reservation showed up for me to manage. Our TA at MEI suggested we do it this way because we are their parents and they are minors.
  11. I couldn't agree more! While in the MDR, we usually speak with the head waiter to arrange vegan meals. Plus, we request more vegetarian/vegan type meals on every survey we receive from RCCL.
