The Allure of the Seas gave us a brand new cruising feeling. Being the largest cruise ship in the world (2-1/2 inches longer than the Oasis of the Seas), and yet you don't get lost easily. There are interactive screens on every floor to inform you the quickest way to go from where you are to where you want to go. You can pre-book all your shows on line and you won't miss one. There are many upscale restaurants and some of them are opened for breakfast for free. As a diamond member, Allure offers a diamond club lounge where wine, beer, cappuccino and snacks are served for free. The Diamond club lounge is overlooking the promenade where parades are performed. One unique feature in the promenade is the rising star bar where the bar rises up from deck 5 (promenade deck) to deck 8 (central park) and down again.
I watched one of the Oasis promo video and the Central Park 150 upscale restaurant ($35 charge) serves Kobe steak but not on the Allure. May be because of the earth quake in Japan that no Kobe steak are shipped to the Allure.
Overall, I have a very pleasant feeling on this cruise and I definitely would want to go back again.
