Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas doesn't debut until December 2010 but that doesn't mean you can't now drool over its itineraries. The cruise line has announced the inaugural season of the ship, 42 sailings to the Eastern and Western Caribbean on seven-night voyages every Sunday beginning December 12, 2010. Bookings will open April 2 for Diamond and Diamond Plus level members of the Crown & Anchor Society and April 8 for all Crown & Anchor Society members. General bookings will open April 13.
Allure of the Seas will depart from Port Everglades and alternate a seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itinerary. Both itineraries will feature three days. On the Eastern Caribbean itinerary, the ship will call at St. Thomas (Charlotte Amalie), St. Maarten (Philipsburg) and Nassau, the Bahamas. The Western Caribbean itinerary will call at Falmouth, Jamaica; Cozumel, Mexico; and Labadee, Royal Caribbean's private island.
Both Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas will span 16 decks and accommodate 5,400 guests; they will also feature the cruise line's new neighborhood concept composed of seven themed areas throughout the ship that offer different experiences.
