  1. So, the Harmony is now sailing the Western Caribbean this week due to the storm changing its itinerary. Is it feasible it might return to Tampa on Sunday instead of PC, with the 9/1 sailing leaving from there? Just curious, and I know pure speculation at this point — but that would be an easier scenario for us than switching to FLL or Miami (considering we could still fly into MCO on Saturday). [sigh] This hurry up and wait is a little tough on the nerves. I’ve sailed during hurricane season before but never in September - always mid-October and later, and have been incredibly lucky.
  2. So excited to follow this thread this week. We’ll be doing this a week from today!
  3. Great, thank you for the info. Just out of curiosity, has this policy cut down on people wanting to leave these towels on chairs for hours to save them while they are away from the pool?
  4. Hello - in reading some recent posts, it seems RCCL has changed their policy on pool/beach towels since I last sailed with them (or, I’ve just forgotten), so I’m wondering if we should bring along our own just in case. So, did I read correctly these are in your stateroom and you are to take them with you to the pool, and then take back to your stateroom? So they aren’t on deck for you to use and discard when done? And for port days, do you take them off the ship with you to the beach if you don’t have one of your own? And, I’ve read where you are charged for them if you lose them? Even on Coco Cay? How is all this processed?
  5. Hello - just booked Bernard’s Tours to take us to Pinel Island in a couple of weeks during a port day on the Harmony of the Seas. I’ve been there once before while on a land-based vacation 3 years ago. I’ve seen posts from earlier in the summer. Anyone have any more recent experiences there to share? Also, we dock at 7:00, but our Bernard’s meet time is 10:00. I thought for ships that come in that early, his tours start earlier? (I’ve done his Orient-Maho tour before.) Could it be his earlier time slot(s) were filled? I just wondered how long we’d actually have on the island itself.
  6. I think she does both, but she does have songs that she has purchased through iTunes and has created playlists with those, so she will be good.
  7. Great, thanks so much for all the responses! I’m still learning all the different functions of these aids and will definitely test them out. Of course, I feel I’m too young to need them but it’s always the people around you who disagree, yes? Like my daughter who told me she wasn’t traveling with me anymore unless I got them! 🙄
  8. Hi - a couple of questions; one for my daughter: will she be able to listen to music on her iPhone via air buds while walking the track on board? Does she need to be “online” (WiFi) for this? For some reason, I don’t think so for her downloaded playlists, but I’m also somewhat tech challenged, so I wanted to be sure. Now, for me; I recently had to start wearing hearing aids and they are Bluetooth-enabled so I can adjust the volume, filter background noise, check battery level, etc., through an app on my phone. I’m thinking I will need to be online for this? Also, they serve as my “air buds” for listening to my playlist music. Same question as above?
  9. It says it is included in the 3, 4, and 5 night dining plan, so I would think so? We have the Chops+1, so if we do this, I’ll have to see if it makes more sense to cancel and do the 3-night plan.
  10. Has anyone done this on the Harmony? If so, how was it?
  11. Hello - first time on Oasis class ship, with many more choices for lunch when first getting on the ship. We’ve usually just headed to the Windjammer along with the masses, although getting on early helps some. We will have our under-seater-sized carry-on rollers with us. What alternatives would you recommend on the Harmony? Dinner will be at Chops that night.
  12. Are you asking what the difference in cost is, or why we would go with the two instead of the three? I don’t think the cost difference was that much, but I was always one who didn’t mind the MDR (although reading the reviews lately, I’m wondering now). So, I wasn’t sure I wanted to commit to three specialty venues this time. Sometimes when I travel solo and want pure R&R, I even look forward to a quiet room service dinner on my balcony! 😄 As as for the other responses - wow, almost unanimous for 150 CP! Thank you!
  13. No, I don’t, unfortunately. Try this one: https://www.cruisemapper.com/ports I didn’t find this site as easy to navigate so it isn’t my go-to one, but it does go further out.
