Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas finishes ship-wide refurbishment


The largest cruise ship in the world, Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas has finished an 18-day drydock revitalization just in time to begin her European cruise season.

The drydock refurbishment added some new features to the ship, including new restaurants.

Royal Caribbean also added 10 new suites onboard Allure of the Seas. In total, there are two Royal Suites, six Grand Suites and two Royal Family Suites.

Also new for suite guests is a Suite Lounge, where suite guests can go to relax onboard the ship just for them.  There's also a new Sun Deck that gives suite guests a reserved spot to catch some rays.

For all guests, there will be new merchandise locations to checkout on, including Kate Spade New York and Michael Kors shops.  Over in Central Park, there's a new luxury timepiece shop, Regalia in the Park.

Through October 2015, Allure of the Seas will be homeported in Barcelona, Spain and offer cruises in the Mediterranean.  In November 2015, Allure of the Seas will return home to Fort Lauderdale, Florida to resume Caribbean cruises.
