The Allure of the Seas cruise ship passes under the Store Belt Bridge connecting Danish islands of Fuenen and Zealand on October 30, 2010. The Allure of the Seas, which cruised out of the shipyard in Turku on October 29, southwestern Finland where it was built, faces its first big test on October 30, when it must squeeze under a Danish bridge, just one foot (30 centimeters) taller than the ship. At 361 metres (1,100 feet) long and 66 metres wide, the "Allure of the Seas" is matched in size only by its twin, "Oasis of the Seas," which was launched one year ago from the same shipyard in Turku, western Finland. The Allure can take 6,360 passengers and will have a crew of 2,100 from 65 different countries.
