Recommended Posts

So happy to see this thread! We are hitting some of these same ports in March on Liberty- Roatan for our 1st time. More importantly, we were on Oasis in Dec, have Harmony booked for next Dec & are trying to decide which Oasis class to book next.

Lunch today was at Chops.

Mushroom soup. Now this was the best mushroom soup I’ve had in a long time. It even topped the many I had on Oasis this past November and Harmony this past September. Not sure what they did differently but it surely was the best.

Thanks for taking us along.  Looking forward to your posts.

 

We are also doing this one in a few weeks.  We also bought the BOGO dining package.  How/Where did you make your dinner reservations once you got on the ship?

They are calling folks to start meandering to their assigned muster stations. Muster begins at 3:45pm.

Approximately how long did your lunch at Chops take? The food looks amazing, hopefully tasted amazing too!


We were their about an hour. Have lunch like that is a nice kick start to the cruise. When carrying luggage your not surrounded by others and their bags waiting for rooms or tons of folks thinking their is only one place to eat and crowding the windjammer.

I highly recommend starting cruise this way.

Always good to start with a dirty martini

It was a gorgeous sail away with some light showers. We did finally leave the diamond lounge and found the casino was open. Must say with the casino open we behaved and just got a drink and then continued upon our way. Can’t go wrong with a Moscow mule though...


Oh yeah my second dirty martini in the Diamond Lounge earlier tonight was far from dirty.....just straight vodka. Why is it the Diamond Lounge seems to always have trouble with these? Those that followed my last two lives, even on Harmony of the seas this past September a dirty martini wasn’t able to be made in the Diamond Lounge. I know first world problems but it’s kinda funny.


Anyways after Diamond Lounge it was casino bar for Moscow Mule. Ole faithful.

After the casino stop whilst being good and not gambling YET, we made our way to the upper deck 15. Though in the process we missed our stop and went all the way back to deck three to go back up to deck 15 again. We then got some daylight hours above deck before heading back to our rooms to get ready for dinner...


Our beautiful above deck sights

Look forward to your thoughts on Wonderland. If we do any specialty restaurant we will do Wonderland. Have read some negative reviews of people not liking the food. Have a great dinner.

Dinner tonight in wonderland was amazing. Something out of the ordinary and not something you can get anytime. Well worth the experience. This was my second time with my first on Harmony on her Inaugural season. Seems fitting to do it on Symphony’s inaugural season.
