Sergey Dolya says: “Imagine a Las Vegas block that floats from city to city. Imagine a ship for 7,500 people, of which 2,500 are employees and staff. Add to that an ice skating rink, volleyball and basketball courts, a golf course, a bowling alley, climbing walls, a fitness center, a spa, infinity pools, and you have the world's largest cruise ship, the Allure of the Seas."

The world's largest cruise ship

1. A cruise liner is, in fact, several independent enterprises. One team is engaged in navigation, another in hotel and accommodation, the third feeds thousands of people every day, the fourth arranges and conducts entertainment, and so on. The life of such a sea monster is very complex and interesting. That's what I want to talk about in today's post...

2. This was my 15th or 16th cruise. I remember that even on large ships I sometimes got sick. Here, there is no feeling at all that you are in the open sea. The colossus is so huge that no pitching is felt at all. We went into a six-point storm, the waves were 4.2 meters high. The ship was motionless, like an Egyptian pyramid.

3. There are original maps and signs on each floor and in each lobby. Everything highlighted in white is a hotel, purple areas are public.

6. The liner consists of two parallel houses connected to each other by jumpers - in front and behind. Between them is an empty space with a green zone. On the roofs of the "houses" pools and deck chairs.

14. On the upper deck there are "wings" that protrude from the hull of the liner to the sides. The wings have two large jacuzzis. You lie in warm water at the height of the 18th floor above the sea and look at the waves below you. Very cool.

15. The nose of the ship. Several decks have been given over to public areas. The design of the canopies is such that it protects from the wind as much as possible, while maintaining the feeling of open space.

18. Now let's see what is between the "houses" of this liner. At the stern there is a carousel, a bar, a park, and a cinema in the distance.

19. In the evening, acrobats perform shows like the Cirque du Soleil in the cinema. Very cool. I thought about stopping by and taking a couple of photos for the report, but I sat there with my mouth open until the end of the show.

20. On the other side of Central Park - an open space with trees and plants at the level of the 8th floor.

28. The deck at the level of the fifth floor goes to the lifeboats. It goes all over the liner, and people are brought here in emergency situations. So that the place does not go to waste, it is used as a treadmill. Passengers of large ships often do this, but only here they specially marked out paths for running and walking. We even agreed on the direction so as not to collide with each other. Full circle - 700 meters.

29. The nose of the ship is occupied by a helipad, passengers are not allowed there. You won't be able to play the scene from Titanic.

34. There is no excursion to the captain's bridge, but I was lucky to sail with a group of Spanish journalists. Their visit was agreed, and I managed to cling to this company. The captain's bridge looks empty. Huge area, but the controls occupy only a small area in the center.

The ship is not controlled by the captain, but by the first officer. He gave us a tour. The officer's name is Gennady. He is from Odessa. Our boy.

35. The ship has no steering wheel. The three propellers of the engine rotate 360 degrees and are set either manually using three rotators (in the foreground of the photo) or using a computer. The system monitors the course and taxis.
