  1. Enjoy your review and pictures. We are booked on Harmony in June crusing the same itinerary. Thanks for taking the time to share.
  2. There are pictures of the South Beach Cabanas, can't remember if it was a stand alone thread or embedded in one of the Harmony of the Seas Reviews.
  3. Now that South Beach is open for business, just curious if anyone has any feedback on the cabanas? I've seen pictures of them but would like to hear more about the service, amenities offered, etc. We have one rented during our stop in June. Thanks in advance for input.
  4. How far in advance do you need to complete the check in via the RC app? Can it be done the day before sailing?
  5. I just booked the western Med for June 2021 on Harmony sailing out of Barcelona. We are also planning to spend some time on the backside in Barcelona. Any tips for hotels or locations in Barcelona? Did you use taxis or uber to get around? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
  6. Just booked a western Mediterranean cruise for 2021. About how far is the Hilton Barcelona from the cruise port? We plan to fly over the day two days ahead of the cruise then stay for a week or so after the cruise. I would assume taxis or the like are readily available from major hotels to get to the port.
  7. Following! We are from Charlottesville, VA. Nice to see so many fellow Virginians on the thread. We are booked on Harmony next June, after school lets out for the summer. Love the pictures of your fur babies, we also have a 3 year old maltese. He is my little cuddle buddy. Look forward to your posts from your week onboard. Which itinerary are you sailing?
  8. I am enjoying your live posts on Harmony. We are sailing her June of next year. I booked a cabana on South Beach for us during our stop....don't think they will be finished until the end of the calendar year. I assume the pool area is area open to everyone. I actually considered changing cabanas but not for $1,299. I'll stay on South Beach and walk to the pool or take the tram. 🙂
  9. Something else to keep in mind if you get a next cruise open booking, while you have up to a year to book your sailing, you have to select your sailing within 60 days or you lose the OBC benefit. I wanted to secure an open booking since the itineraries I am interested in won't be open until end of this calendar year. I tried to find a way to work it out with the Next Cruise folks on Freedom a week ago but it was a no go. I opted not to go with the next cruise certificate this time because I will not get the OBC.
  10. Just got off Freedom June 30. I pre-purchased the $199 all print package for the 13 of us sailing in the Villa suite. Every print picture taken of any of us were included in the package. If you purchase one package for room 1 and you and the 14 year old are in pictures for with those booked in room 2 and room 3, the pictures should be included in your package. My only caution is keep track your pictures as we had to request reprint of pictures we knew were taken but we couldn't find. At the end of the week, we had close to two hundred pictures taken.
  11. The vanity area has a closet with drawers for storage in the bedroom. My sister and her husband stayed in that room and didn't haven any issues with the layout and storage.
  12. I love reading this. While we just returned from Freedom this past Sunday, we are booked on Harmony for June of next year. Very excited to try Harmony to see how she differs from her sisters, Oasis and Allure.
  13. Does anyone have any info regarding the South Beach Cabanas? I rented one for our stop at CocoCay next year but see very little discussed about these type and don't see many showing those as an option to rent.
  14. As promised, a few pictures from the balcony.
  15. I paid $6,400 for passenger 1&2 and then $496 for the remaining passengers. Keep in mind that I booked in May 2017 for a June 2019 sailing. So not sure these costs are still current. If you plan to book, you need to plan well in advance since there is only one of this type of cabin on the ship and as soon as the sailing opens for booking it will book quickly.
