My completely fake and made up LIVE blog from Harmony of the Seas - April 18, 2020!

Recommended Posts

That's right friends, it's time to (pretend to) cruise again and you're all invited!

I can't believe my (non-existent) cruise is finally here, and I am headed back on my favorite ship of all time, Harmony of the Seas!

First, I'd like to point out that I did not start my live blog many months in advance, as @Lovetocruise2002 always  does.

Second, here are the details for this sailing.

Because I didn't pay anything to go onboard, I'm going big time!

We have the Royal Loft Suite booked for this sailing. After all, nothing is too good for my family (especially if it's all pretend).

Having stayed once before on Deck 16 in the suite area, I am looking forward to the suite enclave onboard and enjoying more time in the Suite Lounge.  Who knows, I might just go to Coastal Kitchen!

Our cruise is a 7-night itinerary, with visits to Perfect Day at CocoCay, Cozumel, Costa Maya and then back to CocoCay again! It will be 4 ports of non-stop sun, surf, and eating.

I managed to pull some strings with the government, and got some friends onboard with me for this sailing.  I'm cruising with @Big Dawg Ron, @JLMoran, @AnnetteJackson, @Lovetocruise2002's husband & @Galveston Steve!

Who knows, more may fly during the cruise...because why the heck not! 

My plan is to take the stretch limo over to Port Canaveral on Saturday, and be in the terminal (and subsequently onboard) as soon as I can!

@Big Dawg Ron ?  Really ?  I thought about coming along but I don't have the energy to keep up with this wild man. Good luck !!!  Besides, it looks like a guys-only deal.  I never really wanted to go anyway...

BTW, I am certain that @mpoole3 will have his feelings hurt by not being invited.

😉

This just pretend thing is already getting you!  You're staying in the solarium?  Or the WJ?  Haha

Can you tell I'm not a Suite person? Since your hubby is coming, I figured we'd be camping outside the Windjammer anyway in anticipation of Mongolian grill time

I'm following along!  Can't wait to read about the pretend Suite life!  Is poor @Lovetocruise2002 staying at home with the girls while her husband gets to go?  Maybe there were no more suites left on this sailing?

Story of my life, still working, but virtually...come on summer!

With it being the day before the cruise, I decided to start packing today.

I heard that @CGTLH found a copy of a SetSail Pass on the ground in front of the terminal from 2 years ago, and managed to photoshop boarding pass and get himself a room on Harmony too.  Welcome aboard pumpkin head!

Hubby just wanted me to remind you that you were supposed to request the Genie to set up Mongolian grill in the room.  Star Class rookie mistake...😆

Sorry I'm late, had some issues with my SetSail Pass...

Oh man, what a first day onboard! I guess I was SO busy that I just plain forgot to share an update!

The limo service was fantastic to the port.  The caviar wasn't up to my usual standards, but it's so hard to get the good Russian stuff these days...

Got to the terminal right at 10am, and found the permanents of the tent @CGTLH set up the night before outside the entrance to terminal 1.

Embarkation was super simple, and I was glad to see my Genie ready to escort me onboard. 

I had planned to meet everyone at Sabor, but I ran into @AnnetteJackson on the Promenade and we sat down for a really important work meeting to go over how we can best serve the fabulus RCBlog community.

After the meeting wrapped up, I was going to grab lunch at the Windjammer, but that work meeting made going up the stairs tricky.

Park Cafe serves up fabulous roast beef sandwiches, so I decided to take some time and grab one or two.

Stateroom looks fabulous. Royal Loft Suite is the way to cruise, and I think we're going to have to do an in-suite party at some point.

My favorite part of the suite on embarkation was the very comfortable couch.

After muster drill, I decided to join the party up on the pool deck. The sailaway party at the pool is synonymous with embarkation day, and I found the whole crew waiting up there @Big Dawg Ron, @Galveston Steve @CGTLH @AnnetteJackson @JLMoran & Justin.

We discovered there was no Mongolian Grill in the 'Jammer this evening, so I let @Big Dawg Ron talk me into Izumi Hibachi!

You know, it's crazy, but I cannot recall exactly what occurred after dinner...

While I'm sure it tastes lovely, you need the surprise and adulation that comes with discovering Mongolian Grill as you turn the corner and see that magical sign posted.
