Royal Caribbean International masterpiece Allure of the Seas, sister of the Oasis of the Seas is the world’s largest cruise ship. The $1.5 billion ship is built by South Korea’s STX Finland Cruise shipyards in Finland.
With the ability to accommodate the 6,300 passengers and about 2,000 crew members the Allure of the Seas is like a miniature city, travelling from Fort Lauderdale to the Carribbean at a comfortable 22 knots. It have 2700 private cabins and 26 dining options include the first Starbucks at sea.
Allure of the Seas is the most revolutionary ship introducing Royal Caribbean’s new neighborhood concept, which provides vacationers with the opportunity to seek out relevant experiences in seven themed areas based on their personal styles, preferences or moods. That seven “neighborhoods,” include a sprawling green area with fully grown trees reproducing New York’s Central Park; a Coney Island-style Boardwalk; and numerous amenities offering rock walls, ice skating rinks and swimming pools with surf simulators.
Like its 11-month-old twin Oasis, Allure soars 65 metres above the waterline, stretches 360 metres from bow to stern and fully loaded weighs 225,282 tons. Standing upright at 1,187 feet tall, Allure of the Seas is 124 feet taller than the Eiffel Tower. Allure of the Seas’ length is approximately equal to three and half regulation size soccer/football fields and is 5.11 times longer than a Boeing 747 Jetliner! It was constructed out of remarkable 500.000 individual parts!
One day at the revolutionary design of Allure of the Seas can look like this : wake to two-storey ocean views in contemporary Loft Suites, hop onto a classic, full-sized carousel in our Boardwalk neighbourhood, spend some quiet time in adults-only Solarium and let the kids’ imaginations run wild in Youth Zone – the largest dedicated youth area at sea. Jump right into Pool Zone, where you’ll find H2O Zone, cantilevered whirlpools, FlowRiders® and a thrilling zip-line view of the ship and sea below. When it’s time to unwind, go for a stroll in Central Park – a meandering garden and lush public space lined with foliage and fine restaurants – or take in the majestic view from any of the multiple balconies overlooking the AquaTheater, the first amphitheatre at sea.
