Royal Caribbean Post Round-Up: July 9, 2017

The weekend is here and that means we have finished up another week with plenty of Royal Caribbean news to share. If you missed any of it, here is your neatly tied wrap-up of it all!

The big story this week was Royal Caribbean will test a new drink policy on a few upcoming Harmony of the Seas cruises where if one adult gets an unlimited alcohol package, all adults in the same stateroom would be required to buy it as well.
The pilot program will be for eight Harmony of the Seas sailings starting September 30, 2017 through November 18, 2017.

Harmony of the Seas Live Blog – Day 7 – Sea Day

Our last day on Harmony of the Seas is here, and it is another sea day.

I started off my morning with my usual coffee and breakfast from Park Cafe.  I will definitely miss this morning routine!  I even had it out on my balcony today since the sun was not hitting my balcony directly yet.

After a morning of work, I met my wife for a quick lunch at Sabor.  I just had to sneak in one more bowl of guacamole into my cruise before I left.

Royal Caribbean testing new unlimited alcohol package rule that requires all adults to purchase a package

Royal Caribbean is testing a new policy change for its unlimited alcohol package,where all adults in a stateroom will be required to purchase an unlimited alcohol package if one adult in the room purchases it.

Cruise Critic is reporting Harmony of the Seas will test out the new rule over the course of a few sailings, where all passengers 21 years old and older will be required to purchase a beverage package, if at least one other person in their cabin has one.
This pilot program will be for eight Harmony of the Seas sailings starting September 30, 2017 through November 18, 2017.
Evidently the program is being tested as a counter-reaction to too many guests sharing drink package benefits with other guests who have not purchased the drink package.
When Royal Caribbean first introduced their drink packages, they incl…

Harmony of the Seas Live Blog – Day 6 – Sea Day

Day six is here and it only our second sea day, which is kind of hard to believe because I am used to having more sea days earlier in the cruise.

Today was another work from the ship day, and I grabbed a latte from Cafe Promenade before going up to Park Cafe for my vegetable breakfast sandwich.  I definitely enjoy mornings where I can walk in Central Park to grab my coffee, rather than just walking to my kitchen at home.


My wife spent her morning reading in the Solarium wh…

Royal Caribbean Secrets: hidden lounge deck on Harmony of the Seas

Along the jogging deck on Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas are two lesser-known areas for guests to sit back, and enjoy the view of the ocean from the comfort of a lounge chair.
Many guests may know that on the aft of Oasis Class ships are lounge chairs to enjoy the view of the wake, but on Harmony of the Seas there is a small seating area on both sides of the forward section on deck 5 of the ship to relax in.

Harmony of the Seas Live Blog – Day 3 – Sea Day

Our first sea day is here, and that also means my first day working from the ship.

I made a coffee run to Cafe Promenade before logging on for the day and discovered that the crew were hard at work setting up Fourth of July decorations on the Royal Promenade.  In fact, there are already a few Independence Day events on the ship, including a BBQ and hot dog eating contest.


I could really get used to having my morning coffee on a cruise ship.

Harmony of the Seas Live Blog – Day 5 – St. Kitts

Our fifth day brings us to the island of St. Kitts, and it is also our last port stop.

Unfortuinately, I did not have the opportunity to get off the ship and see the island because I had to work today.  From the looks of it, I would say the weather made for another beautiful day for many that chose to take various excursions around the island.
My morning began with coffee and breakfast at Park Cafe.  I opted to go there to enjoy my favorite breakfast food on Harmony: the vegetable breakfast sandwich.
