Allure of the Seas Ship is Royal Caribbean International masterpiece of naval engineering features the first-ever on board surf park at sea; cantilevered whirlpools that extend 12 feet beyond the sides of the ship… Allure of the Seas will be the world’s largest and most revolutionary ship introducing Royal Caribbean’s new neighborhood concept, which will provide vacationers with the opportunity to seek out relevant experiences in seven themed areas based on their personal styles, preferences or moods.
Overall, the ship exudes an air of elegance, without being stuffy. At full capacity, Allure accommodates 6,318 guests and 2,384 crew. There are 16 passenger decks and 24 elevators. There are 2,706 state rooms, 72 percent with balconies. They feature the latest technology, including flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations. They do a remarkable job of maximizing the space with shelves, cabinets and cubbyholes for all your belongings. Particularly useful are the interactive touch-screen guides on every deck with buttons like “What to Do Right Now” and “Room Finder” .
Central Park is a revolutionary public space combining nature with nautical. Central Park features several alfresco dining options and more than 300 staterooms, which rise six decks to overlook the Park. Quiet reading corners, specimen gardens, and other hidden surprises await guests among the winding paths. Bringing the outdoors in, Central Park offers guests a tranquil outdoor space, open to the sky, like never seen before.
You can’t miss the full-size carousel, with its 18 hand-carved figures. Rita’s Cantina is here, a new Mexican specialty restaurant, a Johnny Rockets with its signature dancing waiters, the Aqua Theater, featuring water and light shows and two 43-foot-high rock climbing walls for the adventurous. Also here is the surprisingly popular Dog House, where you order from seven varieties of custom-made hot dogs.
A mega-size ship deserves mega-size entertainment, and Allure delivers, starting with a full-scale, Broadway-caliber production of Chicago. There’s also an ice show, a 3-D movie theater, a Cirque du Soleil-style experience, a comedy club, a jazz club, dance clubs, including the two-story Dazzles, and gambling in Casino Royale. The big story here is Royal Caribbean’s alliance with DreamWorks, whose characters and creations are integrated throughout the ship.
