I was so lucky to be invited on board Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas last week. We were the first clients to step foot on her and she did not disappoint.
Harmony is the world’s largest cruise ship to date, so before embarking, I made a sneaky visit to City Terminal to have a sneak peek before the crowds arrived and she certainly has the WOW factor!
Embarkation was so well organised and I headed up my first escalator on a ship to meet my fellow Travel Professionals.
Like other Oasis Class ships, Harmony of the Seas has 7 unique ‘neighbourhoods’. You can take a leisurely stroll along the lush avenues of Central Park, enjoy all the fun of the seaside at the Boardwalk, or do some window-shopping in the designer boutiques of the Royal Promenade. It’s easy to forget you are actually on a ship when you are sat in a coffee bar looking out at real trees and plants and watching the work go by!
One of my personal favorites is the interactive screen on every floor. No more getting lost – just a few taps on the screen and you can find your way around this enormous ship, no problem. Anyone who knows me will know exactly why this impresses me so much. Lol
I could go on all day, but I’ll just give you a few tempting morsels to whet your appetite:
Watch robots mix your cocktail at the incredible Bionic Bar, or delight your taste buds with an amazing choice of dining experiences. Harmony has most slides at sea including the Ultimate Abyss (the tallest slide at sea with a 10 storey drop); take a whirl down The Perfect Storm waterslides, Supercell, Typhoon and Cyclone - which features a champagne bowl swirling you around as you descend towards your final big splash!
Yes, the features and gadgets are great, but you’ll also be exploring some stunning locations. It’s time to start getting excited! Soak up Barcelona’s awe-inspiring atmosphere, walk along a beautiful golden beach in Palma de Mallorca, wander through the vibrant city of Rome, or escape from it all to snorkel in the crystal clear waters of Cozumel, Mexico.
After all the excitement end your day by snuggling up in the largest, most luxurious rooms ever.
Whatever you do, there’ll be an adventure waiting for you around every corner!
Before disembarkation, we were treated to a portion of the hit show ‘Grease’! The first time ever performed at sea, I know every word and sang along - I was just sad I wasn’t staying on board for more fun! I’ll be back though!!!!!! No question!
There’s so much more I could tell you about this amazing ship so if you want to know more just get in touch! Harmony is a perfect way for multi-generational families to travel together, enjoy their own type of holiday and have the opportunity to meet up, all at the same time!
There’s a cruise line and ship that’s perfect for everyone. Give me a call and we can chat about what you are looking for and we’ll create a perfect match made in heaven for your fabulous cruise experience!
