When you combine one of the world’s best-loved cruise ship brands with the allure and atmosphere of a high-class Las Vegas gambling hotel, the result is arguably the best casino cruise ship experience on all of Neptune’s great oceans.
Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas ticks all the boxes when it comes to offering the finest in luxury vacations, and for pokies fans the Allure will take your gaming experience to a whole new level.
Everything you could wish for in a Las Vegas casino will be found on board the Allure, including more than 500 slot machines (notably the popular Wheel of Fortune and Triple Diamond machines) along with the magnetic atmosphere created by 27 bustling roulette, blackjack and baccarat tables that have been spread out over a jaw-dropping 18,000 square foot casino. Caribbean stud poker, craps and video poker are other popular games set to challenge your gambling instincts.
All you can drink
Just as you would expect from any self-respecting ‘Vegas’ casino, when you are sitting on a hot hand or are running hot at the tables, you don’t need to break away to hunt down a refreshing drink – bar staff are on hand to ferry your drinks tableside so you can focus on your hand. How very James Bond of them!
A (Casino) Royale experience
To bring a true touch of Bond glamour to your gambling experience, all casinos on Royal Caribbean ships have been named Casino Royale, after Ian Fleming’s first Bond novel of the same name that was published back in 1953. The book was ironically only adapted (albeit very loosely) into an official Bond movie in 2006 when Daniel Craig thrust himself into Bond folklore with one of the greatest performances by a double-O agent on the silver screen. Casino Royale was also memorable for one of the most dramatic casino battles that drew the somewhat dry (but never shaken) Bond line: “That last hand nearly killed me”.
If you really want to channel Bond, James Bond, then you can take it to another level on the Allure by claiming your seat at one of the stylish poker rooms catering to the really serious players.
Stocked with more bars than any other cruise ship, the Allure offers the chance to get to know your fellow passengers while enjoying an evening of bar-hopping to help you wind down after all the excitement of the casino. There’s also a dazzling array of onboard entertainment on offer, including the chance to get away from it all in the Solarium, a retreat that serves up soothing whirlpools and a refreshing water mist designed to keep you cool on hot summer days. The nights are also super-hot on board the Allure, which plays host to a wide range of Broadway shows including CATS, Mamma Mia! and We Will Rock You.
Marvellous Med and mysterious Maya adventures
The world’s second-largest cruise ship can sleep up to 5,400 passengers per cruise, stretches out 362m in length and weighs a staggering 225,000 tonnes (before lunch!). The Allure also offers an unforgettable opportunity to experience the best of the Mediterranean and its carefully planned itineraries ensure you won’t miss out on any of the hot ticket tourist sights and sounds whenever the Allure pulls into land. Across the pond you can hit land and thrill to the chance of jungle strolling in Mexico, exploring the mysteries of the Mayan culture on the Yucatán Peninsula, or taking the tourist road more travelled by soaking up the brilliant warm-water beaches of the Caribbean on a 7-night adventure ex-Miami.
