Royal Caribbean will expand Dynamic Dining to Allure of the Seas

Royal Caribbean will expand Dynamic Dining to Allure of the Seas

Oct2014
The largest cruise ship in the world, Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas, will be converted over to Dynamic Dining.

Dynamic Dining is the new twist on traditional cruise ship dining.  Instead of a main dining room with fixed dining times, smaller restaurants are spread all over the cruise ship to offer more choice in ambiance and cuisine.  Some restaurants will be complimentary while others will have a cover charge to dine there.
Earlier this year Royal Caribbean announced sister ship; UPDATE: AUGUST 28: Royal Caribbean has tweeted out more information related to the Dynamic Dining changes coming to Oasis of the Seas. 
The main dining spaces will be remodelled during Oasis of the Seas' drydock later this year but Dynamic Dining itself will not begin until March 2015
It was widely speculated Allure of the Seas would follow suit.

Royal Caribbean's web site is now reflecting the change coming to Allure of the Seas, although the content there appears to have been copy and pasted from the Oasis of the Seas description.
Allure of the Seas is scheduled to go into drydock in May 2015 and will then offer Mediterranean cruises from May 2015 to October 2015.

Oasis of the Seas deck plan changes coming after dry dock is complete

Oct2014
Royal Caribbean is going to be upgrading Oasis of the Seas as part of her upgrades while she is in drydock and there's quite a bit of changes coming to this ship.  After receiving lots of questions related to how where the changes are onboard the ship, we've compiled a list of the changes coming visually.
