Best spots on Allure of the Seas throughout the day

Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas offers as much to see and do as it is impressive in nature.  This ship was designed to be a major focal point of your cruise vacation, and is arguably a Royal Caribbean ship that redefined what a cruise ship can offer.

With so many options onboard, here are our top picks for places on Allure of the Seas to go, depending on what you are looking to do!

Have breakfast

A hidden gem for breakfast on Allure of the Seas is Johnny Rockets, in the Boardwalk neighborhood. Unlike the Windjammer, which tends to get crowded, Johnny Rockets does not get nearly as crowded.

On Allure of the Seas, Johnny Rockets is open for breakfast and offers some great traditional breakfast items, such as pancakes, omelettes, French toast, and more.

The best part? It's complimentary!  Johnny Rockets is complimentary for breakfast on Allure of the Seas (lunch and dinner at Johnny Rockets still cost extra).

Have breakfast (without a wait)

While Johnny Rockets is a good spot for breakfast, if you are in a hurry (like on a port day), the best spot for a quick grab-and-go breakfast is Park Cafe in the Central Park neighborhood.

Park Cafe tends to be less crowded than the Windjammer and offers a great breakfast spread, complete with a make-your-own bagel bar.

Guests with a drink package can also get their premium coffee or tea at Park Cafe.

Be sure to come back to Park Cafe later in the day for a wonderful kummelweck sandwich!

Get the best snack

We just invoked the spirit of the kummelweck sandwich, but our choice for the best snack on Allure of the Seas has to be the guacamole at Sabor Taqueria & Tequila Bar.

The tableside created guacamole at Sabor will change your life for the better.  It is amazingly good and the kind of food that illicit daydreams like a bad Wayne's World dream sequence.

There are two ways to get this most awesome snack.  You can opt to dine at Sabor and only pay for what you order, or go to the Sabor bar on the Boardwalk and order up a serving to take with you elsewhere on the ship. 

The Sabor bar is the circular bar area outside the entrance to Sabor and they serve up the same great guacamole the sit down restaurant has!

See what's around you

Whether you are about to sail away, are in port or just want to enjoy the vista of the ocean around you, be sure to go to the deck wings on deck 14 for the best view onboard.

These bridge wings extend away from the side of the ship, giving guests a very unique view of your surroundings, and Allure of the Seas itself.

To get to the wing viewing areas, go all the way forward in the deck 14 on the port side. Once you arrive at the end of the corridor, there will be a glass door on the left.

Do something totally different

If you are the "been there, done that" kind of cruiser, then you should try the Prohibition Party on Allure of the Seas.

Part mystery, part jazz club and all fun, the Prohibition Party is a private event that combines live music, unlimited alcohol and a loose storyline to provide all guests with a very memorable evening.

The premise of the Prohibition Party is you are going to a 1920's-style speakeasy, where guests dress up and play the part of Prohibition-era people looking to have a good time.

Grab a Coke

Guests that purchase an unlimited drink package will receive a souvenir Coca-Cola cup that can be used with the Coca-Cola Freestyle machines.  There are machines around the ship, but usually there is just one machine per location.

If you want the best spot to use the machines, head to the Royal Promenade and look for the machines next to Sorrento's Pizza.  There are two machines there, which means there is double the usual capacity for just one location and that means shorter lines!

Find a spot to relax

Looking for somewhere that is shaded and is quiet and a great spot to sit and relax?  

Head to deck 5 and go all the way to the aft of the ship.  You will find chairs that have a great view of the ocean and are usually without many other passengers.

Find a less crowded bar

Bars are great for mingling, but sometimes you just want a drink without the wait and our top pick is the Wipe Out Bar in the Pool and Sports Zone neighborhood on deck 16.

Not only is the Wipe Out Bar usually less crowded than other bars, it offers a great view of the FlowRider surf simulators, as well as a view of the ocean behind you.

With seating for 36, the alfresco bar also offers uninterrupted views over the stern.

Honorable mention to Vintages, which tends to be the least crowded bar on any Royal Caribbean ship.

Date night

Anyone looking to celebrate an evening on Allure of the Seas with a nice evening out, should consider spending their time in Central Park.

Once the sun goes down, Central Park becomes even more beautiful with the fantastic lighting through the neighborhood.  The ambiance gets even better with the regularly scheduled live string music in the evening.

Of course, Central Park is home to a number of incredibly popular and fantastic restaurant choices: Chops Grille, Giovanni's Table and 150 Central Park.

Cap it all off with an evening stroll and maybe a private photo shoot in the
