Allure of the Seas is the newest addi­tion to the Roy­al Caribbean fleet and the world’s largest cruise ship. With 2,700 rooms span­ning 16 decks, Allure of the Seas is like a minia­ture city mov­ing from Fort Laud­erdale to the Caribbean at 22 knots. On board there is every­thing you need for a com­fort­able stay and recre­ation, and even a Star­bucks restau­rant.

In the selec­tion of the largest cruise ships, we already wrote about the giant Oasis of the Seas. The lin­er Allure of the Seas was built accord­ing to the same project and is its twin.

In an upright posi­tion, the cruise ship reach­es 1,187 feet, which is 124 feet high­er than the Eif­fel Tow­er. The ship is approx­i­mate­ly the size of three and a half foot­ball fields. Charm of the Seas was cre­at­ed from 500,000 indi­vid­ual pieces, using 158,503 gal­lons of paint. The ship’s elec­tri­cal cables, when unfold­ed, would approx­i­mate­ly cov­er the dis­tance from Fort Laud­erdale to Alas­ka.


Ships of a sim­i­lar project, like the Oasis of the Seas, are the first ship to receive the DNV (Det Norske Ver­i­tas) mark as a Green Label in the pass­port. This means that it is extreme­ly friend­ly to the envi­ron­ment. It uses an advanced sewage treat­ment sys­tem that has been designed to be twice as strict as US fed­er­al stan­dards for dis­charge of sewage in ports.

Every­thing that can be recy­cled is recy­cled right on the ship. Mod­ern waste han­dling facil­i­ties, buck­ets and com­pactors, as well as crush­ers for glass, light bulbs, tin and alu­minum have been installed. In addi­tion, Oasis con­tains the largest freez­er in the world to store all waste safe­ly.


The coat­ing of the largest cruise ship is made from non-tox­ic, tech­no­log­i­cal­ly advanced mate­ri­als that reduce drag, thus increas­ing fuel effi­cien­cy.
