Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas

Royal Caribbean International's newest cruise ship, Allure of the Seas, sailed next to its sister-ship Oasis of the Seas on Saturday, Nov. 13. Allure received a warm greeting from the 8,000 guests and crew members aboard the Oasis of the Seas. The two ships are the largest in the world. Allure of the Seas is five centimeters longer than Oasis of the Seas.

The Allure of the Seas will be home to the first Starbucks at Sea. In the upcoming week, the ship will be board by landscapers, who will add more than 12,000 live plants to the ship's Central Park neighborhood. NBC's TODAY broadcasts the fourth hour of their show live from Allure on Friday, Nov. 19, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. ET. Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb will unveil the massive cruise ship's entertainment and onboard amenities.
