Allure of the Seas Overview
Accommodating up to 6,780 passengers, Allure of the Seas was once the largest ship in the world, only losing its title in 2015 to its sister ship, Harmony of the Seas. With a plethora of activities from zip lines, surf simulators and rock-climbing walls to Broadway-style shows in the Amber Theater and high-diving acts in the AquaTheater, Allure appeals to all kinds of travelers.
This massive, Oasis-class cruise ship is divided into seven neighborhoods for easier navigation. Each neighborhood has its own distinct theme, from the Boardwalk, a Coney Island-inspired stretch where passengers can ride a handcrafted carousel or enjoy delicious self-serve donuts, to Central Park, an onboard green space with upscale boutiques and restaurants, each neighborhood has a distinct flavor. And speaking of flavors, there’s no shortage of dining options on Allure, with choices ranging from casual buffets and New York style food trucks to elegant steakhouses and sushi bars.
