Harmony of the Seas, Somewhat Live 5/19 -5/26

Recommended Posts

So here we are a day before we set sail on our first family cruise, and our first Royal Caribbean cruise infact. It is my wife and I, our three daughters who are 5, 6 and 7 years old along with my mom and brother. We booked this in March of last year ,if my memory serves correct, so this trip has been a long time in the making. Will try and post as time permits and put up pictures as well. 

Started packing 3 weeks ago so that is how excited I have been 😁  Took today off work so I can finish packing and some other last minute things. We live in West Palm Beach so tomorrow morning we will hit the road for the port which is an hour drive south for us, not too bad.

 

A few things

Ever since RC came out with their Oasis class ships I knew that I had to go one and when Harmony came out with the all the slides I was sold (im a big kid at heart), so that was one of the reasons we decided on Harmony of the Seas. 

Our trips is headed to the western Caribbean with stops in Labadee, Falmouth and Cozumel. I have been on a cruise to the eastern Caribbean many moons ago on NCL and really wanted to see these island this time around

We booked 2 boardwalk balcony rooms, both towards the back of the ship. I love the hustle and bustle of everything and wanted to have somewhat of a view of the show in the back so i was pretty set on getting one of these rooms. 

 

Our Excursions

Labadee - aquapark, zipline and coaster  

Falmouth - dolphin encounter. 

Cozumel - spending the day at Mr Sanchos 

 

 

Well thanks for following along and if you have any questions or anything please don't hesitate to comment below.

So excited for you, HockeyMan.  I know you're going to have a GREAT time.  The O class ships are amazing.  I would love to see the looks on the kids' faces when they see the ship for the first time.  It's always such an incredible realization that YOU are going to be going on THAT ship !  Enjoy, enjoy !

Thank you everyone. 

Currently sitting in Windjammer with everyone for lunch.

Left our house at 8:30 and got down here about 9:45 with the rain slowing us down some. Parking, security and checking in was such a breeze and then had about a 15 min wait to board. I'd be lying if I said it wasn't a little emotional stepping onboard, similar to when we took our kids to Disney for the first time. 

 

Off to kids club and shore excursions we go

So day one is in the books. Weather wise it was a crummy day but we made the best of it, our Fine Line show was canceled and moved to day 6 due to the weather. Had lunch at Windjammer, then kids got hungry before dinner so we stopped at mini bites and totally ruined dinner so instead the kids decided they wanted to swim instead. So far my kids are having the times of their lives and we have just begun, cant wait to see what else is in store. Off to bed I go, have an early breakfast with the Dreamworks characters in the AM

Glad to hear the girls are having fun. Did they do the slides yet?

My kids are still a little shy with the bigger slides, they will do the smaller ones though. Abyss was closed all day due to the weather, was looking forward to that.

Yeah was a rainy day yesterday and although the slides are covered the exits to the slide were drenched from the rain. Merry go round was closed part of the day due to the same.
