Allure of the Seas Ship Tour 2013
In 2013 we sailed Allure of the Seas. This amazing Royal Caribbean mega ship offers something for everyone! I was reluctant to cruise on a ship so large, but the advantage of so many activities and venues is that it feels surprisingly uncrowded! Also, due to the way the ship was designed with certain "neighborhoods and an open interior, I found it much easier to navigate than much smaller ships. The open concept allows you to easily see into other parts of the ship and know which way is forward and which is aft. Although the distances between venues are greater on this ship, it's much easier to find your way around. The only disadvantage of such a large ship is that it cannot tuck into the small ports and off the beaten path locations. We enjoyed this ship as a floating wonder to enjoy while on board and expected to stick to well worn tourist paths while in port.
A couple of notes: These are all our own photos, most of the panoramas are Kathy's and not nearly as good as Jeff's photos. Some of the venues may have changed with recent ship upgrades. We did not receive any compensation or free travel; these are our own impressions.
