Itineraries

Allure of the Seas itinerary program is based on 7-day Caribbean cruises leaving roundtrip from homeports in Florida USA (Fort Lauderdale or Port Canaveral). In 2015, Allure OTS was deployed in Europe (for the first time) for 7-day Western Mediterranean cruises leaving roundtrip from homeports Civitavecchia-Rome (Italy) and Barcelona (Spain). On repositioning, the ship offers Transatlantic crossings between Europe and Florida.

Starting November 10, 2022, Allure OTS was homeported in Galveston Texas.

Starting October 30, 2023, Allure OTS has regularly scheduled 3-4-night short breaks (out of Port Canaveral/Orlando to The Bahamas' Nassau and CocoCay Island) which made it the first Oasis-class liner to offer Caribbean mini-cruises. In July 2024, Allure OTS again changes homeport and starts turnaround operations out of Miami - operating the same Bahamian short break itineraries to Nassau and CocoCay.

Allure Of The Seas Wiki

Allure is Royal Caribbean's 2nd Oasis-class liner - with sisterships OasisHarmony, Symphony and Wonder. Until Harmony's inauguration in 2016, Allure and Oasis were the world's biggest cruise vessels. Still, Allure was the bigger one - just 50 mm (nearly 2 inches) longer compared to Oasis. The hulls of both vessels were named in May 2008, following an online competition for proposing the best ship name.

Allure OTS is one of the few vessels named by a cartoon movie character. Her godmother is Princess Fiona, from the movie Shrek. The ceremony took place on the 28th of November, 2010 at Port Everglades near Fort Lauderdale. After the naming ceremony, Allure set sail on her maiden voyage, on the 1st of December 2010, to both the East and the West Caribbean.

The ship has telescoping funnels to be able to sail across under bridges. Royal Caribbean Oasis-class ships are the first cruise vessels to get a DNV Green Passport. This is a key element for the Clean Ship Design certificate. The certificate is not compulsory, but it shows the environmental commitment of the operator. The hulls of Allure and Oasis ships have a special non-toxic covering that minimizes friction and saves fuel.

On November 4, 2016, world's 3 largest passenger liners (Harmony, Allure and Oasis) convened off Florida's coast. The unique event was live-streamed officially by RCI, starting at approx 5 pm EST. The meeting at open sea coincided with the Harmony's arrival at Port Everglades (her US homeport), finishing a 13-night Transatlantic repositioning cruise from Barcelona to Florida (Oct 23 - Nov 5). The following aerial photo shows an Oasis-class vessel (as looked from above).

The liner's namesake is the Oceania Cruises' ship Allura (2025-built).

Allure OTS refurbishment 2020 review (Royal Amplified)

The ship's Royal Amplified drydock refurb in 2020 was originally scheduled for March 13 - May 9, but was postponed (due to the global health crisis/COVID pandemic) as all seaports (and shipyards) in Spain remained closed in March-April. Allure OTS' drydock 2020 was postponed and revised, with all the staterooms and venue upgrades paused and delayed until RCI's financial situation improves.

The revised drydocking project was estimated at ~EUR 16 million (~USD 17,5 M), including mainly hull and machinery maintenance works. By the original 58-day drydocking project (budgeted USD 165 million / EUR 148 million) at Navantia Shipyard (in Cadiz Spain) were planned to be added new venues and staterooms, and many existing venues and onboard spaces to be extensively upgraded-redesigned and enhanced.
