Thank you so much John for finding this out. Even though it's expensive I may have to go for it as it is on my bucket list and a lot cheaper than buying a whole bottle. Vintages will be the closest bar to our cabin on 8 so I can see us spending time there getting a cocktail and then taking it back to room and sitting on the balcony. Looking forward to hearing your adventures today!

 

CP150 has it according to the guys in Vintages. 

 

Wonderland might have it also, I'll check

Hoping it lasts through our Singapore trip in '21

 

... and here's hoping this time you'll enjoy the pool at Marina Bay Sands 😀

 

As usual, following along, Bella doesn't seem worried when posing beside the luggage... Enjoy your cruise!!

I usually do 2 bucks per bag, or maybe 3 bucks for 2, when dropping off. If they help me during debarking, definitely more. 

Thanks, appreciate the guideline!

Keep in mind, Harmony has a bigger CK footprint than Oasis and Allure. More tables, more waiters, etc..

 

More real estate due to getting rid of the Chef's Table, and shrinking the size of the bar (seating area)?   Are there problems keeping the SL seating separate from CK seating?   

 

Happy you are enjoying your cruise!  🙂

Spoke with Ace this morning.  CK manager. He said he always accommodates JS passengers for dinner. He will fit you in.

Thanks so much.  I have been wondering about the JS situation.  We are very flexible with our dinner times so am glad to hear that the CK manager works the JS folks in.  Happy belated birthday!  Enjoying your live review.

Im loving your posts! Cant wait to be back on the Harmony in a little over 3 weeks! Last time I was on the Harmony was during Hurricane Irma and our cruise went from 7 to 10 days..... it was phenomenal! Do you happen to know if Fe (she was a bartender at Boleros) is on the ship? (not sure if you have seen her at any of the bars). My mom and I were just curious because she made our cruise fantastic and were hoping to see her again this cruise.

Definitely a problem,  folks sit in the perimeter tables all the time.

Seems a simple fix would be to put up one of those oriental style fold out screens in between the sections, versus the "invisible line"...does not take up much room and helps just a bit with sound deadening.  But hey...that's just too simple for RCI to comprehend.  😉

You must be on my cruise!  September 1?   10 days would be great!   However, being shortened 3 days not so great.  :(     Im just hoping the Caribbean stays quiet like it is right now until we can at least get on the ship!

Honestly,  I can tear that production to pieces.

 

Vs, "I don't like CATs, its boring"

 

The only saving grace to Fine Line is it's over in 45 minutes

Interested in your thoughts of why you did not care for it. I made a reservation for it, but if it's that bad I'd rather do something else or enjoy some good cocktails.

If only Cats was that short. 😉  Enjoy Holland House today.

Swank, go at least once and watch it.  I watched the first half of Cats and gracefully left at intermission.  I gave it a chance but it just wasn't for me.

I remember you saying that in one of your reviews. Not to be boring but I can take or leave all the shows, Give me the sea, some good food and good spirits and set me on the balcony, I'm good. Everything else is nice but just being on a cruise makes me extremely happy.

Not John, but here is my take:

Ninja turtles on acid.

Left with a headache.
