We Still Do – Vow Renewal on Harmony - 1/26/20 – 2/2/20

Recommended Posts

Then off to Izumi Habichi. And oh my god. The food, the entertainment, and sake were all top notch. I was seriously blown away... and completely stuffed! I highly recommend Izumi! Best hibachi for the experience hands down. They let us do Sake Bombs but we had to drop them in, that was disappointing but I can understand the rule.

Grandma was gracious enough to watch the kid for the night. So Off to rising tide, a few chocolate martinis for the wife and a few espresso martinis for me (no wonder I cant sleep) was a perfect night cap! We went back to the room for a bit ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) then closed down the suite deck jacuzzi.

Jackie was beat but I cant sleep so I explored the ship with noone on it. And got some amazing pics.

 

I'll attempt to organize the next set of pics better. For now here is the port say at st maartin and the room decorations.

I had to sit in the suite deck while they all got ready. I reread my vows, and madE a few last minute adjustments at the bar with vodka on the rocks.

Well that sounds like an activity that had the potential to go horribly wrong. Obviously you did well though since she said yes again. Congrats on the renewal, and thanks so much for all the great pictures. Enjoying them greatly.

Another great day. Well almost..  We went walking around San Juan, I forgot to take my morning meds so I had to reboard the ship and told my group I'd meet back up with them. On my way back right at the spot I was supposed to meet with them I saw someone get punched in the face and mugged. It pretty much ruined the port and I didnt feel comfortable having my wife and kid out there. So I had us leave early. Mother in law and sister in law stayed, dont think they were happy about me taking them back to the ship. Too bad.

We did get an invite to the helipad sail away for suite guests with the ship officers and they let me bring my whole party. So everyone had a great treat. I thought it was amazing, Mohamed saw me taking a picture of the bridge and told me to come see him later. I also saw one of the fine line performers out there. I didnt want to impede in his time but I did tell him I recognized him and told him he was great. He seemed surprised I recognized him, but he was actually memorable.

Started to rain so we had to leave otherwise I would stayed for the sunset. Headed back to the suite and waited for the sunset from our balcony.  

 

We agreed that we needed a coastal kitchen night. I really wish we had gone earlier in the cruise. My wife got the mushroom consomme and short ribs, I got french onion soup and the shortribs. Daughter got steak again (steak every single dinner service... that's my girl!). The food was amazing. @Lovetocruise2002  I am #teamCK now. (Not sure I'm tagging people right) Too bad we will still need to have group meals otherwise I wouldnt go anywhere else. Dessert we had ricotta cheesecake, coconut custard and the chocolate cake. Very happy the lounge bar had port wine, because I forgot to being on a bottle. I researched didnt looke like the venue's had any. Got that that car CK has some, I'll try a few other bars tomorrow. It really tied in the desserts for me. Delicious!

Went to Mohamed to see what he wanted to see me for. He noticed me taking pics of the bridge and worked together a tour for me, my wife and daughter. This is something I really wanted to do. Both of concierge have been amazing. Such a great treat for tomorrow!

 

We went to see Columbus the Musical. I really wasnt sure about this when I read about it, but it was great. Every show has been amazing.

Not able to convince family to watch the kid for another night, guess my initial post about having plenty of childcare was wrong. Just means more time with my 2 favorite people though ( as long as I actually get them both during the day) But since they had to go in early for bed and I have insomnia, I met up with a buddy that is with us and we hit a couple bars, saw the 90s party and went to love and marriage. Really wish my wife could have been there, we would have been picked for sure. Still it was really funny.

 

Tomorrow last sea day. Then coco cay overwater cabanas on saturday!!! Where the hell did this week go. Wish it wasnt ending so soon!

Coco Cay tomorrow! I'll probably do a full detailed Beach Club and Overwater Cabana write up some time after the cruise. I'll still post pics and a little something here.

 

In the meantime  ive got some time to myself again, so I have claimed a suite deck cabana  to relax in. Here are the most recent maps of Coco Cay I have.

Out of curiosity, when did you have to give the names for the people going to the beach club cabana? We have one reserved for our cruise but are only a family of four - wondering if we can invite someone we meet on the cruise (our Coco Cay day is at the end of the cruise) or if we will have to have the names at the beginning of the cruise.

Haven't given out names yet. From what I've seen so far I get the bracelets tomorrow when we get to the cabana area. Only thing I have so far is a single ticket with my name on it. Still dont know who is sitting out lol

We have come to the determination that we are cruise people.

 

This entire trip has been amazing. The staff has been wonderful, the experiences have been great, and the memories will last. Very sad it's almost over!

 

Today I got some alone time on the suite deck to unwind, we toured the bridge, saw the hideaway heist show (another amazing show!!), got dressed up for formal night, and the kid got sick a bit at the main dining room... I don't blame her lobster night made me want to yack too(good thing we had a great lunch at CK!).

 

I recognized a few people in the audience from the Columbus musical. It's odd they seem to want to deny they are in the shows but then gush a bit at compliments. The guy was impressed that I knew he was the main shark, my daughter got a kick out of the one girl when I said I knew she was a cheeseburger.

Wait, hold on. Are you on an Oasis-class cruise, or at a Grade 5 school performance? Right now, the two sound weirdly alike. 😉 😁
