About the Trip

February 3 – 10, 2019

Four Fabulous Islands

An all-new itinerary takes you to more places than ever before, as we sail from vibrant gay-central Miami. Start with a full day at Royal Caribbean’s spectacular all-new private island paradise of Coco Cay with more beaches and fun than you ever imagined. We’re one of the first to visit after a $200 million makeover. Some of the world’s best diving and awesome adventures await on the magical island of Roatan. Explore Mayan ruins and unspoiled beaches from the remote port of Costa Maya. And get a taste of authentic Mexican charm in dazzling Cozumel, with nearly endless possibilities.

 

 

Days at sea offer endless options, starting with an entire deck dedicated to sports and activities.  Join a game of water polo in the sports pool, climb one of the two challenging rock walls, soar through the air on the zip line, or play volleyball on the full-size court. There’s even ice skating! Or check out our FlowRider surf simulators 150 feet above the ocean! 

Staying active is easy in the first-rate, fully equipped gym, featuring the latest in cardio and weight-training equipment. And runners will love the wrap-around ocean view track!

 

On Stage, Water and Ice

Three fantastic main-stage venues and unique intimate spaces host the biggest gay entertainment festival in history, starring amazingly talented performers from our community and beyond. The three-story theater hosts a dazzling full production of Broadway’s Mamma Mia!, spectacular production shows, signature entertainers, and Air-Otic, a uniquely original gay flying show.

And that’s just the beginning. Studio B presents a dazzling ice skating show and a few surprises. We’ll even take the show to the water with OceanAria in the Aqua Theater, a true marvel of acrobatics, high-diving, and visual spectacle set against the ocean’s night sky.  

Atlantis presents the world’s best gay comics in the comedy club, a seemingly endless parade of drag queens in Dazzles, and the most original and talented cabaret performers in our community. All with a few surprises popping up along the way.

Allure of the Seas

There’s something for everyone to discover on one of the world’s most spectacular and best-designed ship. With 28 ultra-modern loft suites and 2700 spacious staterooms, this 17-deck marvel proves that the impossible, is possible. You have to see it to believe it. There’s so much packed onto this magnificent ship, that words simply won’t suffice.

Join a game of volleyball or basketball on the largest sports court at sea, or simply relax in one of our hot tubs that overlook the ocean from the side of the ship. The massive pool deck features four distinctive areas, including a “beach” pool and a sports center. And the fitness center rivals any top club you’ve ever seen.

Electrifying Original Concerts.

Only with Concierge Travel and Atlantis you can enjoy some of the world’s top DJ and musical stars in the ocean’s largest and most magnificent outdoor concert setting. We’ve created an extraordinary new experience exclusive to Allure presenting top musical acts in our outdoor arena for thousands of guests. Past years have showcased EDM superstars Galantis & Gareth Emery as well as a live show from Olivia Newton-John. Who knows who we’ll bring in 2019. Atlantis’ legendary parties take place in five incredible venues to create the most spectacular parties on land or sea. From themed T-dances to thrilling evenings, there’s nothing like dancing outdoors under the ocean’s sky. And Allure provides our best settings for parties that defy imagination.

The sensational AquaTheater hosts the biggest afternoon T-dances (and a few special events) in the most spectacular venue yet, surrounded by huge LED screens, world-class sound, soaring views from the balconies and rock walls, and ocean views all around. At night, we’ll transform the massive open-air Solarium into the ocean’s most technically advanced nightclub, with a wrap-around video wall, awesome lasers and dazzling lighting effects. With two stories of dancing, there’s never been a bigger or better venue to host our thrilling events.

And there’s more, including special events in the Promenade and progressive after-hours parties in Studio B. There’s alternative music in Blaze, and retro-classics in the art-deco themed Dazzles.

Whether you want to bask on gorgeous powdery white beaches and swim in pristine turquoise waters or take a more active approach by revving the engine of your personal Waverunner, Coco Cay will provide many ways to relax or go on a unique adventure. Reserved exclusively for cruise ship guests, this 140-acre tropical paradise is all ours for the day.

Enjoy the endless possibilities at the first day of sea including our first afternoon T-Dance or drag queen bingo.

The Conquistadors first saw Mexico from the shores of Cozumel while searching for gold. Today, visitors to the island continue to seek gold and silver jewelry in the shops of San Miguel while having a great time in its many local bars and restaurants. Plus, the waters around Cozumel’s sheltered coral reefs make this one of the best snorkeling areas in the world. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore the ruins of the ancient Mayan city of Tulum, majestically perched above the turquoise Caribbean.

Roatan offers the best of both worlds; natural beauty, including unspoiled beaches and rainforest, or the chance to kick back and enjoy the new casino, shops, bars and restaurants of Mahogany Bay.

Costa Maya, once a trading post for the Mayan Empire, is best known for its jungles, beaches, lagoons and Mayan ruins. Recent development and modern port facilities are making Costa Maya the perfect port of call. With the ancient Mayan City of Chacchoben, soak up the famous Mayan sun at Uvero Beach, take an exciting ride on a ATV or Mini Rhino through the jungle, or go snorkeling to see parrot, butterfly and angelfish.

At our final day at sea, hang with your new friends by the pool, indulge in a day at the spa, or enjoy famous pool games. You’ll be entertained all day to night with the onboard activities.

Welcome back to the vibrant city of Miami. Stay and enjoy the culture, sights and sounds or continue on to one of the many great destinations on South Florida including Ft. Lauderdale and Key West
