Royal Caribbean International’s Allure of the Seas has begun homeporting at Port Canaveral in Florida, USA, becoming the first Oasis-class ship to offer three- and four-night itineraries to The Bahamas, as well as the cruise line’s private island, Perfect Day at CocoCay. 

The ship arrived in port on 26 October 2023 and, in keeping with maritime tradition, port CEO Captain John Murray welcomed Allure’s captain Tobias Oster and hotel director Adriana Tibaudo to Florida.

“We’re proud to be Royal Caribbean’s partner in this industry-first offering,” said Murray. “Our partners see a strong demand in our market for shorter itineraries on an Oasis-class ship. We are thrilled to welcome home the Allure of the Seas and look forward to delivering exceptional customer service experiences to their cruise guests.”

Port Canaveral has expanded its parking capacity with approximately 1,000 new spaces near Cruise Terminal 1 to accommodate any Allure of the Seas’ guests arriving by car.

Allure of the Seas is the fourth Royal Caribbean ship to homeport at Port Canaveral; it joins Wonder of the Seas, Mariner of the Seas and Adventure of the Seas.
