LIVE B2B from Harmony 9/22 and 9/29, A Tale of Two Cruises

Recommended Posts

Part 2 of my summary

 

Week 2 was a blast, well worth any inconveniences. But that is from the opinion of a C&A Pinnacle member. I understand not all had the same experience. We didn't do any of the normal shows, but I did do two of the water slides. Saw two better comedians, and lots of old friends. Met tons of new people, and drank excessively at very little expense.

 

President's Cruise highlights

Pizza was still good

The VISA parties

Martini Night

Tiki Party

Labadee Lounge

Labadee Sail Away

Fireworks

Michael's Club

Polynesian Pinnacle Party

Having Mario seek me out as the CC person to report his true number of points

Cheerfulness of the staff with so many needy people

DSB concert

Sail Away from SJ with Penny and Pete

Massage with Bethanie

Pinnacle Lunch with Helen

Filet three times, lamb and lobster twice

Steak Quesadilla in back of WJ

 

Disappointments

Michael Bolton concert

WineGate drama

Balloon drop (late and no MB)

Missing all the Wild Boys concerts

Crowds at muster, probably should have gone through casino from Studio B

Billy Ocean, I probably left to early

MDR menu SNAFU on day 3

Stories told to me of bad Pinnacle behavior

The fact Laura was sick and missed a lot

Green slide having shorter hours than blue and yellow

 

That's all I can recall. I am in process of booking 50th birthday bash. Maybe Iggy Pop will get invited.

Great review and well summarised.

Pleased Laura is feeling better.

John, thanks for the post cruise shakedowns.

 

You can bet if Iggy is there, so will I. Front row seating should be easy to get.

Overall a well run ship, and will have to sail her some next year if I can find decent prices.

Week after Thanksgiving is looking good.

 

Biker, who is aiming to be on that one.

When the disboards did an update like this they dropped their app and everyone has to use the website which now has a more ‘mobile friendly’ view....but I will really miss Tapatalk if it comes to that! It’s

Much easier for me me to read!!

This was my first thought as well. Going to the web site is so “20th century”! I post very little on disboards now since the app disappeared.

Coming up - week 2

 

 

I haven’t seen any news for PC past Apr 2020. Is Harmony not staying beyond that?

Head waiter said she was only staying 6 months, but April 2020 is obviously longer than that. So who knows

With Allure going into dry dock in Europe in 2020, there would be 3 of the large ladies in Florida for summer 2020. I don’t think they would not have one in PC. As of April 2020, Harmony is in PC, Allure in PE, and Symphony + Oasis in POM. Suppose Harmony could go back to PE and Oasis comes back to PC when Allure heads east .

 

Given the price premium that they are seeking for Harmony in PC vs. what Oasis is, they may keep it there. Time will tell, but it’s fun to speculate!

P.S. We may be on the 1/6/19 Oasis with you! I’m holding a GS that appeared yesterday at a decent price.

Thank you. You mentioned the back of the wind jammer twice. What did you discover back there?

Two hot stations. Oasis and Allure only have dessert back there.

 

Offering varies throughout cruise.

 

Eggs in morning

Mexican, pasta, panini, paella, etc at lunch

Stir fry, crepes, soup dinner

Great reporting / thread John.

 

Awe, you? As I sit here sipping hot ginger and honey tea :( and will play catch-up as missed your last couple of days.

 

Safe travels home.

I wanted to thank you in person for this live thread. My wife and I were on this cruise and had a wonderful time. We passed by you and your wife a couple of times but never had the chance to say hi. My daughters were able to keep up with our cruise by reading your posts. I hope that the two of you feel better soon. Thanks again for the great reporting the last 2 weeks.
