Starbucks at Sea

Allure of the Seas Royal Promenade

Walking along the Allure of the Seas Royal Promenade on Deck 5, you smell fresh coffee. It smells like Starbucks coffee you think at first, but then you say, that can't be, I'm on a cruise ship. Now curious even more, you continue walking and you discover that you were correct... it is a Starbucks Coffee shop. 

Starbucks Pastries
Royal Caribbean International entered into an agreement with Starbucks Coffee as jointly announced last October.  As of December, 2010,  guests on Allure of the Seas have the option of purchasing their favorite Starbucks beverages including signature made-to-order espresso beverages and Frappuccino® blended beverages. Breakfast items, pastries, and sweet afternoon treats are also available.

"We are always looking for unique ways and places to connect with our customers and deliver the Starbucks Experience," said Chris Carr, senior vice president and general manager of Starbucks Licensed Stores. "Starbucks' presence aboard Allure of the Seas is another place where our customers want and expect us to be."

Starbucks Menu
Trained baristas offer signature and seasonal beverages and food, as well as the complete line of Starbucks VIA® Ready Brew products, between 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily, based on a la carte pricing. In addition to the Starbucks store, Seattle’s Best Coffee®, a featured brand in the Starbucks portfolio and a Foodservice provider to Royal Caribbean for the past 10 years, is served throughout the cruise ship, including in the Adagio main dining room, conference rooms and the ship’s signature specialty restaurants.
