“I Dream of Genie” – Star Class - Harmony of the Seas – 03/10/19-03/17/19

Recommended Posts

Thank you so much for your wonderful live review. I will miss checking in each day. We are just getting started on our cruise vacations so heaven only knows if we will ever even consider Star Class, maybe once the kids are done with college....I can dream, right. Until then at least my hubby has agreed that we get a cruise without the kids for each cruise we take as a family. It looks like you and your family had the most amazing vacation- I bet you splurge again after a week like that because how can you go back?

The morning you have to disembark is the worst feeling ever...

Heading to CK soon for breakfast and then we are off...

The best thing to do at such morning is to start and browse RCL site to see if maybe , just maybe there is a place to squeeze another cruise 🙂

First , thank you so much for taking everyone with your SC adventure, I know its not easy to update as much as you done, you spoiled us 😀

Second , RC should sponsor your next SC cruise, or at least give you a huge discount , just ask them to see how many people browsed their site during the last week  for SC prices , I think you convinced many to at least try and book one.    

Have a safe trip home and may your next cruise and SC will come soon.

She’ll just have to remind them that both of her recent live blogs have more views than @twangster

Cruising without the kids is just as important! Enjoy that!

I would be happy if they just gave triple points for SC sailings

Thank you so much for this amazing review! So full of information and you ( and others) always answered questions which was very much appreciated for a newbie! What an amazing vacation for you and your family!

That is the beauty of a live blog. Great interaction and lots to learn from each other. For example, I now know how to warm cookies for my next cruise 😂

Well, walk off was a breeze. Araceli came to pick us up in our cabin at 8:30 am. We were at the curb waiting for Lyft by 8:45 am. There is no wait time with the SC departure. She bypassed all lines and elevators.  No drama from any other guests, and since we had LV, there was nothing to pick up either.

Last sad sight...

FLL is another story, it is packed here. So far everything is good at the gate and our flight home is on time.

Happy to answer any other questions if there are any. If not, thank you all for following along with us. It has been a wonderful week and I have loved sharing the experience with all of you. 😊

Sabrina, a huge thanks to you and your family for taking us along on your SC adventure! It has given me (and I am sure all readers of this blog) an opportunity to step away and imagine what our lives can be! Sometimes, we all just need a little hope.

Like so many others have joked, how can you go back to regular suite life?!?! Which is still pretty fancy for me!!

Safe travels back home!!

Ugh...the feeling of walking off the ship, having been pampered all week...and back to the real world of waiting, and lines...sigh.  Not sure I like that.  Maybe Royal can extend the SC service to include bringing you to the airport & bypassing all the lines and escorting you right onto the plane.  Now that would be service worth paying for!

Once she learns to take photos at the “golden hour” all the other bots are screwed. 

Not going to happen ever. That is my dinner time. And if you haven’t guessed already, we like to eat 😂

On your anthem trip in a JS, you still get to go to CK for dinner!  With a window seat, of course. Safe travels home

Yes, dinner only, depending on availability 😥

Glad you made it home safely! I’m sure re-entry will be rough. 

Quick question. I’m looking at the photo package since we have such a big group. I thought I’d double check and make sure that wasn’t included with SC. Didn’t find it anywhere but didn’t want to assume. Thanks!

No package included. If you are Diamond and above, you can still get your one free photo per adult.

Also, if you are interested, the Genie can arrange a private photography session for you but you would pay for the pictures. @tiny260 might have some more info on that.

Interesting, I’d love photos that weren’t just the typical backdrop, and of course without waiting in line 😉

The Genie scheduled our time with the photographer for one of the formal evenings, it is only done in the Studio, very professional, the sitting is free, he took probably 40 pictures, some just continuous, trying to get a genuine reaction photo instead of a pose. My wife just told me the only choice are black and white. We scheduled a preview for one of the sea days.

We then went through all of the photos and we picked out 8 or 10 I can't remember, he then touches these up in Photoshop I think, he gives you an example while you are sitting there so you know what to expect.

So 8-10 photos for the 2 of us was $500, if you buy the whole digital package they are supposed to throw in all the photo's including the untouched up photos.

Something happened on ours and we got the 8-10 touched up and the 8-10 untouched, we didn't get the other 20-30 other untouched, either we were never supposed to or we misunderstood what we thought we agreed to.

With that said, I was hesitant going in because I had heard horror stories of peoples packages being in the $1200 range, maybe it depends on how many people are in the sitting? The person that posted this was a Grandmother and it was a whole family cruise, so I assume a whole family photo sitting.

They are really good photos, I'm glad we did them, my Wife and I had not sit down for photo's in probably 20 years, so it was a good thing for us to do.

Let me know if you have any other questions. I keep referring to the photographer as a he, because our was. They are also very serious about focusing on you, they lock the door and even if people are knocking they will not stop and answer the door.
