Live from Finland: Shipyard Tour of Allure of the Seas!

Where's Cruise Critic? Cruise Critic's Senior Editor Erica Silverstein is at the STX Turku Shipyard in Turku, Finland, today for a hard-hat tour of Royal Caribbean's under-construction Allure of the Seas. The 225,282-ton, 5,400-passenger vessel is the second in the Oasis class, the largest cruise ships ever built!

What we know so far: Silverstein has just sent some news via text message -- Allure of the Seas will follow in the footsteps of recently launched megaship Norwegian Epic (pictured) by introducing a churrascaria, or Brazilian steakhouse, onboard. The eatery, the Samba Grill, will take the place of the Solarium Bistro at night.

Not surprisingly, there will be a cover charge -- of $25 per person -- to dine at the all-the-meat-you-can-eat restaurant.

What's coming up: Later today, we'll be posting Silverstein's photos of the ship -- inside and out -- and first impressions. Bookmark Cruise Critic News and keep checking back for the latest on Allure!

In the meantime, we want to know what you're most excited about. Join the conversation in our dedicated Allure of the Seas forum!
