  1. You’re welcome! You’re also in a great location, right by the forward elevators, relatively close to everything above and below, and one deck from Central Park. Enjoy Allure! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. If my “calculations” are correct, 9556 should have the bed by the balcony. Happy sailing! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Chances of cancelling a cruise are very slim - there are only a select few conditions in which this would occur, those being charters, mechanical issues, last-minute drydock decision (extremely rare, happened for Allure last January but that was the first I’ve heard of that) - overall I think you’re good. I would always recommend travel insurance in any case, just to be safe. Have a great cruise! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. Your Cruise Director will be Michele Scarpato. He was Activities Manager on my 2015 Allure cruise, and was CD on Symphony for most of the inaugural Med season. I thought he did a great job, happy to see him thriving as a CD! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. For a lack of better description, it’s basically a message board app where you can connect your accounts on various message board forums (CC and others) and all your subscriptions will show up in your notifications feed. I only use the app for CC, but it is very convenient and you never miss anything because all your notifications live in one place! I have it on iOS, and I believe it was free on the App Store.

  6. Agreed! Tapatalk has made using CC so convenient for me. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. If you are using the Tapatalk app, posting to a thread does indeed subscribe you. I’m not sure about those not using the app. I, for one, appreciate the work you do here and think it’s great to be able to know who’s in command of your ship. Thank you! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. My apologies - I was not aware of any such rule, and even looked it up before trying my response to confirm I was providing you with accurate information. Case in point, I have been on many cruises with my family, including a brother who spends his days at the FlowRider - boogie boarding (although he has tried standup a few times). On the Oasis in 2014, he was 11 and while our parents would sometimes go back there to be with him for a little bit, I don’t believe they ever spent the whole day watching him. Granted that was 5 years ago so the rules may have changed since then; if they have, I have yet to hear anything about it or see it posted anywhere. My apologies again for the confusion!

  9. Deck 14 is directly below the pool deck, so there may be some noise. I would stick with Deck 12 as there are cabins above and below. As far as docking, as Bob stated, Harmony normally docks with the starboard side facing the dock, with the exception of certain port days when they need to test the lifeboats on that side, which occurs on select sailings based on the ship’s drill schedule. On sailings where this does occur, it will only take place on one of the port days, and all other port days the ship will dock starboard side as per usual. Generally, 12630 will look out at the dock and 12230 will have a view of the harbor. The view depends on the port - if you book 12630, some days you may be looking directly into another ship’s balconies (or, given the height of Deck 12, directly across at another ship’s pool deck), and other days you may have a direct view of the island (as is the case with Labadee). Often times the port side will have a great view of the ocean or of the island itself, depending on the design of the port. Which ports are you stopping at? I believe the Harmony offers two eastern itineraries; which ports you stop at may determine which side is better for you. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. I do not believe there is an age requirement (someone correct me if I’m wrong); the restrictions are by height and state that boogie boarders must be 52 inches and stand-up surfers must be 58 inches. I hope this helped, enjoy Harmony! Wonderful ship! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
