Allure of the Seas emerged from its 18-day drydock at Navantia with 10 new suites, a revamped Izumi Hibachi & Sushi restaurant, a Sabor Taqueria & Tequila Bar, a Coastal Kitchen and new boutiques.

Through October Allure will sail from Barcelona for the first full Oasis-class Europe season, following a micro-season operated by Oasis of the Seas in autumn 2014.

In November Allure of the Seas will return to Port Everglades for alternating western and eastern Caribbean cruises every Sunday.

Among the ship's 18 restaurants are the re-imagined Izumi Japanese Cuisine, now Izumi Hibachi & Sushi, offering a full teppanyaki menu along with sushi rolls and sashimi.

Sabor Taqueria & Tequila Bar offers Mexican dishes, including hand-made tableside guacamole, plus a curated beverage menu of tequilas, mezcal and Mexican beers, as well as sangrias and tableside-mixed margaritas.

Borrowed from the Quantum class, Coastal Kitchen is an exclusive restaurant for suite passengers and Crown & Anchor Pinnacle members. It fuses Mediterranean and California flavors and has an ample wine list chosen specifically for the venue.

Allure of the Seas continues to offer Giovanni’s Table, 150 Central Park and Vintages Wine Bar, among all the specialty restaurants introduced on the Oasis class.

The 10 new suites offer stunning views of the ocean or the Aqua Theater and Boardwalk neighborhood and include two Royal Suites, six Grand Suites and two Royal Family Suites. They come with new, exclusive suite amenities that include a suite lounge and a new sun deck area with lounge furniture, shaded and seating areas and private service.

Coastal Kitchen provides suite passengers full-service breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Newly added boutiques include kate spade new york and Michael Kors, in addition to the passenger-favorite Coach fine leathers boutique. Fine jewelry and luxury timepieces are available in the new Regalia in the Park, Royal Caribbean’s duty-free boutique in the Central Park neighborhood.
