The allure of the Seas® offers something for everyone, from downtime done right in the adults-only Solarium to captivating views from the Rock Climbing Wall and hang-ten sessions on the FlowRider®. Little ones will also find endless ways to have a blast with group activities and games at Adventure Ocean®. No matter what your age, thrills await around every corner. -Royal Caribbean
Stunning destinations and scene-stealing entertainment aren’t the only things to look forward to on your vacation — there’s an adventure for your taste buds, too. Like mouthwatering Italian dishes at Giovanni’s℠ Table, elegant cuisine made from fresh and flavorful ingredients at 150 Central Park, and tender prime meat served in a classic steakhouse setting at Chops Grille℠. Make sure to bring your appetite. -Royal Caribbean
Make it a night out at the theater and jive to all your favorite ABBA hits in Mamma Mia! then belt out everything from show tunes to shower tunes karaoke-style at On Air Club. Craving a date night with your plus-one? Order your favorite glass of wine at Trellis Bar before salsa stepping all night to live Latin bands at Boleros. -Royal Caribbean
The onboard activities, unlimited food choices, amazing fun and massive beauty of the Allure will take you where you want to be.
KTDY cruisers will receive exclusive admission to the onboard Polyester Power Hour Party and other events. Our cruisers will also get their very own Mardi Gras Parade on the ship.
Buses will be offered for those who want to leave the driving to us. In addition, the new facial recognition stations at the new Galveston terminal make debarking the ship as easy as looking in the mirror.
Kermit Duhon, former owner of Travel Machine—A Full-Service Travel Agency located at 102 Westmark Blvd. Suite A, Lafayette, LA 70506, explains why he is taking his family on the KTDY cruise.
Of all the ships I've been on in my career, which have been many, I've had the most fun and best overall experience on Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas than any other ship I've ever been on. She's one of the largest ships in the world with amenities that go over and beyond. The staff is generous, kind, fun and quick. The Allure is designed to move people with ease. Even with thousands of people onboard, there are hardly any lines, no crowds. Everything on this ship flows easily. The entertainment is second to none. The restaurants are all amazing. One of the best meals I've ever had in my life was on an Allure cruise. And the best part is that right now, you can get on this fabulous ship for the price of a cruise on a small 30-year-old ship from a lower quality cruiseline. This is the perfect time to take my family on a much-needed vacation. The memories we will make on the KTDY cruise will be priceless. I can take my family on any ship to any destination in the world. I have chosen the Allure and the KTDY cruise because I know the quality of the ship and the wonderful people KTDY attracts. There's no better cruise in the world for the price right now. -Kermit Duhon, Former Owner of Travel Machine
