Harmony Aug 4, 2019 - We're not on Empress anymore.

Recommended Posts

Obviously we get off in the morning,  but o have a ton of stuff to still post. Maybe I'll get it completed before we board again on the 18th. 😇

Indeed. And a GS to boot. 😇

 

I have, obviously, made some poor life choices. <shaking my head> <SIGH>.

We were on Harmony in May and Empress in late June.  An enjoyable time on each but obviously totally different experiences.  Harmony is simply an amazing creation but, for my own tastes Harmony is too big and Empress is now too small.  I think my favorite Royal class ships are Vision, Radiance, Voyager, and Freedom.    The Oasis class ships are on the list where we wouldn't book them on our own, but if friends wanted to go we'd certainly join them.

Great review John, I’m looking forward to whatever you have still to add. It’s really too bad you couldn’t find any good ocean views from the ship, I appreciate you trying! 😉

Left Bionic Bar at 7:25, home at 7:45. 😁

Was that where you met the concierge?  If so guessing 7:15 was the meet up time then?

We require photographic proof.  

(or, more honestly, we really love pics of adorable pups!)

Hmm, sexy dancers in skin tight catsuits. Yea, that's outdated. 🤣

 

And all this time, I thought you went for the songs and "story"😁

We went up to SL, but it got to be 7:15, so we just left. Said some goodbyes to folks waiting in Bionic Bar and left the ship. 

 

Self assist was still going on, but we fit right in.

 

Did facial recognition as you entered luggage hall. Passport much better than birth certificate now. 😉 Grabbed luggage and walked out. Got a cab and headed home. $20 + $3 tip

It's both. I figured that has been made clear many times. 😉

She goes to groomer on Wednesday 

 

I'd take a pic, but she's staring at Laura eating pizza right now🍕

Just left the casino. I was told no fee to get credits on the slots. I didnt try it, but they sounded sincere. When do you sail?

I normally <snip> out photos when quoting but I think everyone needs an extra dose of adorable today.  😍

Thanks for the pictures!

Some of the food is better, the service is a little better. It can be very relaxed or a madhouse.  The view is generally very nice. 

 

That being said, some of the menus aren't our cup of tea. Really dissapointed in the second lunch menu, days 5-7, and the kiddie menu.

I have to lay a guilt trip on DH so he’ll eat dinner in the MDR with me instead of his beloved WJ. 

I booked a junior suite for the room, as we usually get mini suites when we sail on Princess. Royal’s balcony cabins are bigger than Princess’s, and one would have worked, but I wanted the hump. 

I hope I can get him into Coastal Kitchen and that he’ll be happy with the food, at least a couple of times.
