  1. Yes. We loved them on the Edge Brought 2 of them home.
  2. We are "scheduled" to be there the second day it is open. We already have a day pass to the CoCo Beach Club reserved. Keeping fingers crossed and
  3. We were on the Harmony last March. My adult daughters, son-in-law and grandkids, ages 10, 8 and 6 were able to climb the rock wall. The ship supplied special shoes for the climb.
  4. We were in a Grand Suite earlier this year on Harmony. Loved CK. Never ate in MDR and did not miss it. Had not had the best experience in MDR on recent cruises. We ate most meals there. Breakfast was very good and great to be away from the crazy busy Windjammer. Our grandkids, 6, 8 and 10, were able to get "kids type meals" on any night as special requests. They loved it there. Staff is excellent. We did eat at Sabor one night and were not impressed. Expensive and not the best service. We are now officially spoiled and have 2 other cruises booked in a suite.
  5. After seeing this topic, I went to our reservation on the Harmony for 1/26/2020. We have a beach bed at CocoCay booked at $299. It is now $199. I called Royal Caribbean and cancelled and rebooked. Even the agent on the phone was surprised how much less it was. Love this blog!
  6. I agree. We will be taking our silicone straws on our next cruise.
  7. You can use your Starbucks app if pre-loaded with money, but not stars.
  8. In the Grand Suite on the Harmony we were able to get a bottle (or more) of water any time the Suite Lounge was open. They did not limit us. The Suite Lounge is open at least 11-11. You could get a can of soda also. We would put extra in the refrigerator in the room.
  9. Will this be like the Barefoot Beach Club on Labadee?? Suites area?
  10. We had eaten at Sabor on the Navigaror (I think) Loved it. Ate dinner at the Sabor on the Harmony. We were not impressed. No atmospehere, service was not the best and food was so-so.
  11. The kids can order from the adult menu. Our 10 year old grandson did enjoy some of the adult menu items. We requested different meals for the grandkids that was not on either the adult or kids menu and they were able to get it for them (PB&J for the 6 year old). Coastal Kitchen is amazing service and the food is excellent.
  12. They gave our grandchild an extra sea pass card for their parents room which was right next door to us. She was not listed on the manifest in their room. We had the balcony wall opened between our rooms. They just made the sofa bed up with 3 pillows, etc. and at a 90 degree angle to the normal way they make up the sofa bed. All worked out great!
  13. I believe the GS room on the Anthem is the same size as the GS on Harmony. When we cruised on the Harmony recently, our daughter, son-in-law and 3 children (10, 8, 6) were in the room next to us. One of the grandchildren was officially in our room. They said they could not put a cot or rollaway in the GS room because of coast guard rules about room size and number of people. They did make up the sofa bed the other direction for all 3 of them and it worked out well. The one bathroom for the 5 of them was not a problem. The perks for a Grand Suite are awesome. We all loved the Coastal Kitc
  14. Breakfast menu is the same every day, but you can order other meals and they will accommodate.
  15. When we were on the Harmony, my daughter had special requests for breakfast that were not on the menu. They easily and graciously accommodated her requests.
  16. We did our first suite (Grand Suite on Harmony) recently. We had originally booked a large balcony room. We decided to upgrade to the GS and were very happy we did. We do not do multiple cruises a year, so felt this was great for us. We usually drink beer and wine and occasionally a blended drink, so the free drinks from the Suite Lounge were fine for us. So we did not buy a drink package as we have on previous cruises. The Coastal Kitchen, suite lounge, concierge and the Suite Deck were well worth the money for us. Each person has to decide what works for them and what they are willing
  17. In St. Thomas we did the "Pirates, Sail, Snorkel and Beach" We have 3 grandkids, 9, 8, and 6. We all loved it. The ship was "Bones". We sailed and then went to Honeymoon Beach on Water Island to snorkel and swim. The beach was very nice and has a great bar, Dinghey's. Food and drinks were good and quick. This was a RCCL excursion which we liked because it was scheduled to arrive back just 30 minutes before sailing and we were comfortable with that timing because it was a sanctioned RCCL cruise.
  18. chair clips to hold towels. Can be windy on the sea day especially.
  19. Recently returned from the 9-night Harmony of the Seas sailing. There were 8 of us, including 3 children ages 6, 8 and 9. All 8 of us at there for dinner 6 of the nights onboard. The food and waiters were great. The children's menu is the same each night, but they were able to order off the adult menu also. What was really awesome was that they also got them chicken strips, cheeseburgers and fries and mac and cheese, even though it was not on the menu. The waiters were so sweet to our grandkids and brought them chocolate milk and "Shirley temple" drinks as soon as they sat down. We (the
  20. We used the Luggage Valet for 8 people and 8 suitcases. It was awesome. We were in a Grand Suite so we did not have to pay the $25 fee. We were on the Harmony and disembarked on Sunday 4/7/19. We were on Delta and left FLL at 11:55. When we got to the airport with just carryon backpacks and one small pull carryon, we would have gladly paid $50 or more each after seeing the check-in line in the Delta terminal 2. We arrived about 9:00 am and the baggage check-in wound back and forth many times AND there was a line against the wall that went to the other end of the terminal and outside. Yo
  21. When we left the Harmony yesterday, there was a table with mounds of power strips on it that were confiscated when the cruisers came onboard. I'm not sure how they would know which one was their power strip. So apparently they are not allowed on board.
  22. We were in the Barefoot Beach suites area, so that is probably why we were not billed for the beers.
  23. I know there have been previous questions about the Suite Lounge drinks. We just returned from the Harmony on 4/7/19. From 11 am to 11 pm you can get free beer (3 or 4 kinds), free wine, free sodas and free bottled water. From 4:30 pm to 8:00 pm you can also get mixed drinks free. They do not do any of the "fuzzy" drinks up there. This also applied to Labadee after 11 am. We told our grandkids they were not "free" they were "pre-Paid".
  24. When we got on the Harmony 3/29/19 the drink package was $70 for the first and $35 for the second. I believe that is more than if purchased before the cruise. On our 9-day it would have been almost $1400 for 2 people when they add the 18% tip. We were in a Grand Suite and so glad we did not buy one.
