Overview

The 6,780-passenger Allure of the Seas, unveiled in 2010, is among the largest cruise ships in the world. There are 2,100 crew members on board to cater to passengers' needs. Along with signature line amenities like rock climbing walls and ice skating rinks, the ship houses seven unique neighborhoods with a variety of activities, shows and dining options.

A recent renovation unveiled new slides and rides on board, as well as reimagined spaces for kids and teens. Other standout features include a zip line that descends nine decks, two surf simulators and a floating version of Central Park with seasonal flower gardens and canopy trees. Plus, with 16 dining options – and a Starbucks at sea – every member of the family will be satisfied.

In terms of lodging, about 65 percent of cabins feature balconies, and all staterooms are appointed with TVs and minifridges. Interior staterooms are the most economical option, but those who splurge on Suites are granted larger balconies and concierge service. Crowd-free areas might be difficult to find due to the outrageous capacity of the ship, but some recent cruisers praise the nonstop activity and entertainment. 

In 2019-20, Allure of the Seas departs from MiamiFort Lauderdale and Barcelona for sailings in the Caribbean and Europe.
