Following a slew of itinerary updates for upcoming Allure of the Seas, Royal Caribbean has scheduled the ship to enter a dry dock in January 2018 to fix the issue(s) slowing the ship.

Royal Caribbean confirmed on Twitter that Allure of the Seas will enter dry dock on January 21, 2018.

All this week, many guests have received email notifications from Royal Caribbean alerting them to a "speed restriction" that forced the cruise line to change scheduled port stops.

Royal Caribbean has not indicated the nature of the issue exactly. 

Royal Caribbean Blog reader Brian Davis shared the Captain of Allure of the Seas indicated a few weeks ago that there was damage to one of the three propellers.
