Upcoming Harmony Genie B2B


Recommended Posts

DW and I are doing a HOS B2B in March for our 30th anniversary. Sky Loft(1724) first week and Aqua Theater (8330) second week.

 

Looking for thoughts from folks that may have done something like this in Star Class.

 

Will we have the same Genie both weeks?

We are looking forward to in-room dining. Any Tips? Inside or out on balcony?

What don't miss Genie items? (Bridge Tour, Wine Tasting, Daily treats, ...)

Can we get Starbucks delivered to the room each morning? How about Fresh OJ?

What are your favorite snacks to ask for? (cheese plate, cookies, Guacamole, ...)

What beverages are available in-room? Can you get Coke Zero?

Will the genie get you a couple of bottles of wine each day?

With just two of us traveling, what should we tip our Genie?

What do you know now that you wish you would have known before you cruised?

We were in 9330 and our genie was Daniel. We tipped him $100 per person in the room but there were five of us. We had all the soda we requested but we didn't request Coke Zero. We had champagne when we boarded and two bottles of wine we never even touched. We used the beer in the fridge and went to the bars and dining room for wine and other drinks. The Robot bar was great! My granddaughter asked for M & M's and they were brought to her! They left sunscreen, bug repellant and all kinds of goodies. I loved the coffee machine! We never ate in the room but ate at the Coastal Kitchen for breakfast and specialty restaurants for lunch and dinner. They were all FANTASTIC!!!

 

I didn't realize we skipped the lines upon disembarking. We were off in 10 minutes!!!! That was a nice surprise.

We had a loft suite for a week on the Oasis and tipped 300.00 for my wife and I.

One of the advantages of the program to us is the immediate boarding when you arrive at 10:30-11 and having your cabin available right then with all your luggage.

Then you'll go over your itinerary with the Genie for the week and make any adjustments needed and address anything that you didn't cover in the emails previous to your boarding.

We aren't big wine drinkers so I can't comment on that.

And with the drink package (and Starbucks beverages) included we were good!

Our favorite sodas and beers were fully stocked throughout the week.

We know the Oasis class ships well and our needs were minimal and other than the specialty dining when we wanted and reserving us the best seats for all shows we didn't do much with our Genie.

He did meet us on departure day at our cabin with a porter and escort us and our luggage right to a customs desk.

I'm sure you'll have the ability to request the same genie for both voyages (unless you don't like him or her) and since your back to backing, your embarkation will be very speedy on the 2nd. leg I would anticipate.

As far as the special deliveries and the tours around the ship, I would recommend you ask for anything you think and see how well they can deliver.

As for our favorites, CP150 and the cucumber martini is fabulous!

Have a great time!

Steve

Hi Fisherwoman

 

Any Aqua Theater Cabin Tips? Did you watch the shows from the balcony?
