Royal Caribbean’s ships are known for their signature interior boulevard of boutiques, restaurants, bars and lounges. However, when traveling on the Allure of the Seas, passengers are treated with a spectacular new design of the ship’s Royal Promenade. Read on about some of the favored highlights from Allure of the Seas reviews.
Allure of the Seas showcases an open-sky Central Park that features lush and tropical grounds. It is located in the center of the ship. Over at the Central Park, natural light flows through two crystal canopy sculptured glass domes, illuminating the much wider Royal Promenade. This massive park is more than the length of a football field.
There are a wide variety of dining venues on board Allure of the Seas. For instance, passengers can have a nice cocktail in the Rising Tide bar at the Royal Promenade. The Rising Tide bar is the first-ever moving bar at sea. The Central Park is not only lined with foliage, but it also contains a number of fine restaurants and bars.

The favorite cabins on Allure of the Seas can be found in the staterooms on decks 7 through 12 and also on deck 17. Past cruisers warn of staterooms on deck 3 as not being favored.
