Allure of the Seas changes maiden voyage schedule

first_img<a href=”” target=”_blank”><img src=”;cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE&amp;n=a5c63036″ border=”0″ alt=””></a> Royal Caribbean International has pushed the first revenue voyage for Allure of the Seas’ inaugural season forward by one week.  The ship’s maiden voyage will be a seven-night Western Caribbean itinerary, which will now set sail on December 5, 2010 instead of on December 12, 2010 as originally planned. Guests booked on the original sail date of December 12 will be contacted by their travel agent or a Royal Caribbean representative, and given the opportunity to move their cruise vacation to December 5*. Booked guests who opt for the December 5 sailing will be re-accommodated in the same stateroom and category, and the cruise fare will be the lower of either the fare paid or current prices. Guests booked on the December 12, 2010 sailing will have until the end of the month to switch to the December 5 sailing and ensure they keep the same stateroom. Australians who want to experience the Allure of the Seas firsthand can call 1800 754 500 and travel professionals should call 1300 754 500.Prices for seven night Eastern Caribbean cruise start from $1,795** (sailing in March 2011).  Royal Caribbean International was able to push the Allure dates forward because the ship is ahead of schedule; the yard is now able to complete the ship earlier than planned.* No guests travelling from Australia were affected by this change.**Prices are for inside cabin, per person, including all taxes and gratuities.
