allure-of-the-seas-worlds-largest-passenger-ship

The Allure of the Seas is the largest passenger ship ever constructed and the statistics are simply mind-boggling:

- 225,282 GRT (gross register tonnage)
– 1,187 feet (362 meters) long
– 215 feet (66 meters) wide
– 213 feet (65 meters) high from the water line
– 30 feet (9.1 meters) draft
– 22 knots cruising speed
– 16 passenger decks, 24 passenger elevators
– 4 bow thrusters with 7,500 horse power each
– 5,400 guests (double occupancy), 6,318 guests total, 2,384 crew (from appx. 80 countries)
– 2,706 staterooms

On a recent vacation aboard the cruise ship, Redditor eatababy took a tour of the ship’s facilities (at a cost of approx. $150) and documented the entire experience. He uploaded a comprehensive 104-picture gallery to Imgur where you can see not only the ‘behind the scenes’ areas but the main areas and rooms as well.

Below you will find just the areas that are typically off-limits to guests, categorized into their respective areas.
