Allure of the Seas, part of the Oasis Class

Yesterday, Royal Caribbean announced that their largest ship, the Allure of the Seas, will be in Europe for summer 2015!

Also the biggest cruise ship in the world, the Allure will be based in the port of Barcelona from April to October 2015, taking passengers around the Western Mediterranean in a way that has never been experienced before. The 3, 5 and 7 night itineraries will include stops across Spain, France and Italy, including Rome, Palma de Mallorca, Florence and Marseilles.

This is the first time the Allure of the Seas will sail in Europe, so you will be able to explore this wonderful ship without the hassle of crossing the Atlantic! At 225,282 gross tonnes, it is the largest ship in their fleet and the largest in the world, in fact. Twice the height of the Gherkin, longer than four football pitches and with 16 passenger decks, the Allure of the Seas has one of the widest selection of on board activities available at sea.

With seven distinct neighbourhoods, you’re not likely to get bored on this spectacular ship. Follow in the footsteps of Tom Daley and try your luck on the Flowrider, speed down the white-knuckle zipline, clamber up the rock wall or just take a wander through Central Park, the first ever living park at sea.
