(2 p.m. EST) -- Does the world's largest cruise ship ever sleep? Join us aboard the just-launched 225,282-ton, 5,400 passenger Allure of the Seas as we knock off 24 essential activities in 24 hours.

Managing Editor John Deiner and Associate Editor Dan Askin hooked up the java-drip IV -- the free stuff, not the for-fee Starbucks -- and set out without sleep in search of something to do at every hour on Allure of the Seas.

Eat cupcakes for breakfast, gawk at ogres and giant pandas during a morning parade, and spend the afternoon shopping for $7,500 watches or eating sausages with a hot dog dressed in a Hawaiian shirt. When night falls, experience a Brazilian cowboy meatfest and Broadway show, and after midnight, hit the dance floor or grab a slice at Sorrento's. Think there's nothing for the bleary-eyed insomniac to do at 5 a.m.? That's exactly when Allure's eccentric stairwell art comes alive.
