  1. Perfect Day at Lelepa will also be built with sustainability features designed to safeguard the island's ecosystems and will be the first carbon neutral* private cruise destination in the world. Cox Architecture, a sustainable, design-focused contemporary architectural firm based in Australia, will serve as the lead architect on the project. "We believe our destinations should be sustainably designed," Bayley said. "That idea goes beyond simply protecting the ecological features of Lelepa and includes showing respect for the people and traditions that make this a special place." Vanuatu Prime Minister Salwai said, "Vanuatu is a true paradise for both our people and the visitors we welcome to our shores each year. Today marks a major step forward in our island nation's close relationship with Royal Caribbean and one that will support sustainable growth for future generations. The Ni-Vanuatu people look forward to welcoming Royal Caribbean guests from around the world to enjoy extraordinary adventures and relaxation during their Perfect Day at Lelepa." Bayley said, "Anyone who has encountered the tremendous natural beauty of Lelepa can understand why it is the perfect setting for 'Perfect Day.' Our guests who travel to the South Pacific are seeking authentic adventures and genuine relaxation, and they will find both here." Perfect Day at Lelepa will have a different look and feel from Royal Caribbean's wildly popular Perfect Day at CocoCay "because our guests around the world all have different definitions for their perfect day — and all of them are right. Our designers and nature have created the ideal South Pacific experience and we expect the results will be stunning."
  2. Just off the press from RCCL: An island paradise reimagined, Perfect Day at Lelepa will be the exclusive home of Royal Caribbean's newest private island destination in the Southern Hemisphere. The only island of its kind, one of the natural gems of the South Pacific, unlike anywhere else in the world. Only on Royal Caribbean.

  4. OK thanks everyone so much for your advice. I've still got a lot of thinking to do, including which deck to try to be on as Deck 8, 10 & 12 seem to be the most recommended ones, but I do know that sticking with an ocean view balcony (rather than Boardwalk or Central Park) will be what we want and that I should keep away from Deck 14.
  5. I'm considering flying cruising on Harmony of the Seas in December 2020. It will be me, my husband and our youngest daughter who would turn 16 on the cruise. As we've never cruised on a ship larger than Freedom, the choice of cabins on Harmony is mind-boggling to me! I'm certainly fascinated by the Central Park and Boardwalk balcony cabins but I know that I definitely want to see the sea. And, although the aft Boardwalk balcony cabins do partly see the sea, I'm worried about the noise at night (my daughter and I are light sleepers) plus not sure how I'd feel facing other cabins. So think I'm probably safest booking an oceanview balcony cabin. I know that I've been very spoilt by our cruise last year where my family of five cruised for two weeks from Sydney to Singapore on Voyager in two aft cabins - both of which had massive balconies (two loungers plus table & chairs). So that's why I'm considering possibly an Oceanview with Large Balcony on this Harmony cruise even though I know it would still be half the size of our Voyager balconies. But then I wonder if the increase in balcony size between that and a regular balcony is negligible so not worth the increase in price and, since all the ones the Large balcony category cabins seem to be located on the first hump, that might perhaps not be a good location on the ship? See I'm very confused! Does anyone that has sailed Harmony or another Oasis class ship, have any advice. What are the favoured locations/decks on these ships? Many thanks for any advice 🙂
  6. We did a family trip to Europe 4 years ago which included visiting the Christmas markets in Munich, Innsbruck, Seefeld-in Tirol and Colmar. I found them all totally magical especially Colmar (just Google Image "Colmar at Christmas" to see what I mean). I'd have loved to go back another year at take my parents as I know my Mum would love to see the Christmas markets. However, I think the only way that I think my parents would do it is if they were on a river cruise. I looked into it and then I realised that my favourite time to experience the markets was at night time when the sparkly lights were at their most magical. But I think that, by that time of later afternoon/evening, you'd need to be back on your river cruise ship as it would be departing. Hence we have not done it.
