At 1,184 feet long and weighing in at 222,900 tons, Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas is the largest cruise ship ever built. It's able to carry 5,400 passengers—plus crew—and with on-board amenities like a skating rink, a miniature golf course, surfing simulators, and a merry-go-round, there's little need to ever leave the ship.

Does it sound like a completely obscene and ridiculous way to spend a vacation? It sure does. Are you curious what it would be like to spend a week on the ship without having to actually pay for a room? You bet you are, and thanks to Google Street View, you can now wander the decks of the Allure of the Seas without leaving home. [Royal Caribbean via Engadget via Telegraph]

I just noticed something that bothers me about this ship: all of these balconies overlooking the mall area. Why would I want to go on a cruise and look over my balcony at people wandering into overpriced stores when I can be looking at the ocean and islands and such? One of my best memories from my cruise a few years ago was sitting on the balcony at 3am watching the lightning from a nearby hurricane as we skirted around it.
