Image a Place in the Middle of Me...

Imagine a place in the middle of me where the world revolves around you! Sound familiar? 
I'm pretty sure you have all seen the Royal Carribean commercial for the Allure of the Seas cruise ship. I just got back from a charter cruise on that very ship. Yup, you heard me right. I said charter cruise. My company rented out the entire ship to take the company on a four day charter cruise on the biggest cruise ship that is currently on the market. 
It was wonderful! The ship was HUGE. And when I say huge I really mean HUGE. It featured an aqua theater, an ice skating rink, several theaters, LOTS of restaurants including a Starbucks, a Johnny Rockets, Mexican restaurant, Japanese steakhouse and more! 
Don't believe how massive this cruise ship is? Check out my pictures and notice the "baby" cruise ship parked next to the Allure of the Seas:

My favorite part of the cruise? The shows and the food! The shows were awesome....better than a show you would see for $200 a ticket in Vegas. The food was also incredible. Hands down favorite restaurant I ate at was Govanni's Italian restaurant. Simply divine.
My least favorite part?  The added charges on everything. It was very difficult to know what cost extra and what didn't. If you weren't careful you could be charged $10 for a Snickers bar or like me, $8.95 for a cup of water when it is free everywhere else on the ship. 
All in all though I would recommend this ship if you are looking for a cruise. We were on this ship the same week as the ship terror happening on the Carnival ship by the way....
And to leave you with a laugh here is a photo of me ziplining across the ship!
