While the design length of the Allure of the Seas is the same as that of her sister, 360 metres (1,181 ft), she is actually some 50 millimetres (2 in) longer than the Oasis of the Seas. According to the shipyard, this is not intentional and such small differences in length may occur simply due to the temperature of the steel in a ship as big as this. The gross tonnage of the Allure is 225,282 and her displacement — the actual weight of the ship — is equal to that of the Oasis, which is estimated to be around 100,000 tons, about the same as that of an American Nimitz-class aircraft carrier.Her steel hull alone weighs roughly 54,000 tons. The ship features a two-deck dance hall, a theatre with 1,380 seats, and an ice skating rink.
In 2011, Taylor Swift became the first internationally recognized artist to use the amphitheatre onboard the Allure of the Seas as part of a world concert tour. It was used as the first date of her Speak Now World Tour. Competition winners took to the ship to attend the concert.

Very nice shot. I will be in Port Everglades when she is in port too. Where did you took this picture. Is it possible to go there? Where would be the best light at noon time to take a shot of her?
