  1. Dont think we were in surge. Standard uber was like $85....so an extra $15 for the xl...but we needed the room. "shuttles" were $45 a person each way...with 4 people....uber was the way to go...plus.....i dint want to be part of a shuttle cattle call.
  2. We had a good time overall. I know my thoughts may seem a little overly critical. Just giving my honest feedback. Plenty of awesome things also. My 12 year old had at least 20 ice cream cones. We were deck 8 ocean view balcony.
  3. Family of 4, me, wife (late 40's and 2 girls 12-17) My main take away is, RC has a line management problem. Overall, i didn't get the feeling Harmony was a gigantic ship. Seemed the same size as the Disney Wonder from 10 years ago. I mean that in terms of public spaces you could go. The difference to us was in the extra 5 decks of cabins. Making everywhere you went on the ship crowded and just one line after another. I call this a line management problem because RC either doesn't care, or doesn't know how to efficiently deal with this congestion. Embarkation was quick and easy.
  4. Harmony of the seas next week. 2nd cruise ever. Last cruise was a Disney Cruise in 2008. But we have done a lot of travel. Jamaica a few time, Dominican, Hawaii, Disney (more times then i will admit), snow ski trips. So not Jaded, just hard to please I guess.
  5. Been to Disney many times. (like 40+ vacations in last 30 years). the key is to buy your park tickets early, and make you fast pass + reservations (3) the day the open up, and stack them one after another. Have everything loaded up into "mydisneyexperience" app. Simple day will go like this. 9am port 9:30am off ship 10:00am uber to Disney's Contemporary Hotel ($75) 11:30am walk to Magic Kingdom Entrance. Since you pre bought your park tickets, you can just walk in (after security) 12:00pm use 1st fast pass for splash mountain 12:30pm ride pirates of the c
  6. Looked at all the excursions available from RC and doing a canned excursion with several hundred cruise people just doesnt excite us (family of 4, me, wife, 17-12 YO girls). I have looked at all the web sites. All the "things to do" just look like tourist traps. At this point I am leaning towards just staying on the ship all day. Anyone have any ideas? Willing to pay for an experience that is unique and not just a big locals money grab.
  7. We are on Harmony next week (june) and the memorial sale for UDP was $52,,,,black friday was $55, Darn right I cancelled and re booked. $42 bucks saved
  8. before sail away...if it is a NO you can still get off the boat and not be miserable for the duration of the cruise.... just sayin
  9. As a QA professional.....I blame lazy developers who don't unit test..but that's just me
  10. On harmony next week....games 4 and 5 while we are at sea. wish us luck. #LGB
  11. Did the same thing. Booked black friday prices for next weeks cruise. Memorial day sale works out to be $3 a day savings for us. $21 is $21 bucks. Kind of a hassle to cancel and rebook everything on RC's crappy web site. But I got it done. Now just waiting to make sure my refund to my CC gets processed properly.
  12. understand RC's position on this, but not happy. Originally my plan was to get 1/2 day tickets for 17 and 12 year old daughters and mom and I would hang at our cabana. Saw the must be accompanied by an adult 18+ provision. Had to cancel the 2 half day passes and book 4 full days passes. Looks like I get to do some tubing now. Not that big a deal. just not ideal.
  13. For around the pool or at coco cay. I assume its ok to bring our yeti tumblers too keep cold. with the ultimate drink package, will the make my drink in my cup, or will I have to transfer on my won?
  14. 1st off. this is my 1st post. I have been reading these boards for 9 months as a guide to booking an preparing for our cruise on Harmony next week (june 2, 2019). My question is this. Can I bring a portable blue tooth speaker to our rented beach bungalow? We frequently do beach trips, and a day at the beach is not complete without propper music. Has anyone done this before? is it frowned upon? Thanks for any insight you can provide.
