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 ship features a two-deck dance hall, a theater with 1,380 seats, and an ice skating rink. Many of the ship’s interiors were extensively decorated by muralist Clarissa Parish.
