Royal Caribbean Cruises
has taken the decision to move forward the first revenue voyage of its Allure of the Seas
vessel in 2010 by a week.
The inaugural trip of the year for the Oasis-class ship was originally set to take place on December 12th, but has now been changed to seven days earlier and is a Western Caribbean itinerary.
Passengers initially set to be on board this first trip have been given until the end of the month to reschedule their plans, if they want to remain as one of the primary users of the vessel's new and exclusive amenities.
These include light and fountain shows in the AquaTheater, a studio B ice-skating rink and high diving.
Meanwhile, the ship can carry 5.400 passengers and is spread across 16 decks, bringing together themed areas including the Royal Promenade, Central Park and a Pool and Sports Zone.
Passengers looking to sample the delights of Allure of the Seas can also embark on a trip taking in the eastern stretch of the Caribbean, with all experiences beginning from the ship's home port in Florida.
In terms of eating options, holidaymakers can opt for a traditional signature steakhouse, a new casual Italian restaurant or cafes combining European pastries and chocolates.
