On a ship with multiple time zones, its own Boardwalk and Central Park, and some 20 places to eat, passengers won’t get to do everything in a week. During a seven-night Western Caribbean voyage on the 6,360-passenger Allure of the Seas, we certainly tried, sampling bison and six table salts at the ship’s $40-a-head restaurant, attending evening shows that actually “sold out” and wandering the streets of the Caribbean’s newest port in search of jerk chicken and cheap Red Stripe.
What we found: Unless Allureans are superhuman or, more realistically, booked on back-to-back sailings, they’ll have to make some hard choices.

So you have time for all the good stuff, here are seven things not to do on the world’s largest cruise ship.
