The revolutionary, stunning and breathtaking Allure of the Seas left the Turku shipyard on 29 October 2010, at 0545 UTC, heading directly to her future home port of Port Everglades, near Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She arrived home November 11, at approximately 9:30 a.m EST, celebrated by thousands of fans. Captain Hernan Zini reports:
From now on, this ship will be a media darling: with a genuine event every time she sails. To give you a taste of the future, four-time Grammy Award-winning artist Taylor Swift is scheduled to perform live on-board Royal Caribbean International’s newest and most innovative ship yet, Allure of the Seas, in the amazing, open-air AquaTheater while the ship is docked in Cozumel, Mexico on January 21, 2011.
But even without super stars, a journey aboard Allure of the Seas will woo you every time. They spent a great deal of time fine-tuning their product. They added amazing entertainment, brilliant international cuisine, genuine and topped by superlatives, like, for example, the largest Margarita collection at sea, featured by Rita’s Cantina. And since we talk superlatives, what about DreamWorks® Experience? Yes, almost better than Disney Land, this ship welcomes families with DreamWorks 3D movies, and ice and aqua shows. Allure of the Seas will be the exclusive ship in the Royal Caribbean fleet with the How to Train Your DragonTM Ice Show and MadagascarTM Aqua Show.
They spare no superlatives when describing their wonder, but why would anyone featuring the following do?
The revolutionary design of Allure of the Seas will fill your days at sea with wonder: wake to two-story ocean views in our contemporary Loft Suites, hop onto a classic, full-sized carousel in our Boardwalk neighborhood, spend some quiet time in our adults-only Solarium, and let the kids’ imaginations run wild in our Youth Zone – the largest dedicated youth area at sea. Jump right into our Pool Zone, where you’ll find our 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 amphitheater at sea.
So meet Allure of the Seas, a travel event every time she sails. She got us excited, and you can bet, the Argophilia team will soon be on board, to report live, at the scene… Until next time, behold the Royal Caribbean queen.
