What it’s like to sail on Allure of the Seas?
Allure was built in 2010 and is scheduled for a Royal refurbishment in 2019. Allure can hold a little over 6700 guests at full capacity and has 2200 crew onboard. Allure is an Oasis Class ship and is the sister ship to Symphony of the Seas, Harmony of the Seas, Oasis of the Seas and soon to be Wonder of the Seas in 2021. Allure has 16 public decks, 9 complimentary dining options, 10 specialty restaurants, 7 distinct neighborhoods, 4 pools and 42 bars and lounges.
Allure of the Seas was our very first Oasis Class ship and was the largest cruise ship we had sailed on do date. We did not know what to expect but we knew the ship would be huge…and it was huge…and we loved it! On our Allure cruise, we fell in love with the Oasis Class ships. We loved the layout of the ship. Even with 6000 people on the ship, it never felt crowded. There are so many different ways to get to one location and that allowed the crowd flow to keep moving. On other lines, there are only a few decks that house all of the on board activities and this causes bottlenecks and huge crowds of people.
Allure is a great ship for everyone in the family and has something going on for all ages. Want to be adventurous? Check out the sports court area. Want to relax? Grab a seat by the pool or in the Solarium and read your favorite book. There really is an activity going on for everyone.
In our opinion, Royal Caribbean has the best entertainment at sea and you will not be disappointed with the entertainment on Allure. The Broadway show Mamma Mia was awesome and all the other shows were just as fantastic.
