If there were ever a time to getaway this is it and if there were ever a place to have a total vacation experience it has to be a Royal Caribbean cruise aboard their newest ship, the Harmony of the Seas. Amazing, is a perfect word to describe this state-of-the-art marvel because the ship does indeed astonish and surprise you at every turn. http://www.royalcaribbean.com/
Even Harmony’s statistics are
awesome. Built in St. Nazaire, France, she made her debut this year.
The ship is 215.5-ft. wide, 1,188-ft. long and has a total of 16
guest decks with 2,747 staterooms. It is designed to accommodate a
total of 6,780 guests and 2,100 international crewmembers,
approximately one crewmember for each 2.5 guests, to ensure
unparalleled, personalized service. There are rooms and suites to
suit all tastes and budgets and include inside, outside, balcony,
handicapped accessible and virtual balcony cabins.
Virtual balcony cabins are definitely
an example of Royal Caribbean’s dedication to cutting edge
technology. Rooms without a balcony or window tend to allow guests
to lower the expense of the trip but can make one feel slightly
claustrophobic. That was rendered a nonissue with the debut of
staterooms with a virtual balcony. These rooms feature a floor to
ceiling, wall to wall, 80-inch high definition screen that provides
real-time views and sounds of the passing sea. Red Epic HD cinema
cameras are located on the bow and the stern for optimum viewing.
The projection includes a balcony and a railing to enhance the
feeling of security and guests have the option of closing the drapes
if the beauty of their surroundings overwhelms them.
Harmony of the Seas has more
than 15 restaurants, including 8 specialty restaurants that are
themed to the seven neighborhoods on the ship. Together they serve
more than 200 different meals and 340 brands of wine daily. The
Bionic Bar and the Rising Tide Bar, located on the Royal Promenade
successfully segue from dining to entertainment. Robotic bartenders
in the Bionic Bar serve their signature drink and allow guests to
create their own. The Rising Tide Bar lets you enjoy a drink while
floating gently to an upper deck and enjoying the view.
Dining and accommodations on board are wonderful but what really sets Harmony apart is the variety of adrenaline activating mini-adventures offered throughout the day during the length of your voyage and between ports of call. Two walls are available for rock climbing on Deck 6 or you can head up to Deck 16 to Zip Line nine decks high. Guests can also perfect their surfing skills on the Flowrider. The two most popular rides are The Perfect Storm and The Ultimate Abyss. The Perfect Storm, three connected water slides, Cyclone, Monsoon and Typhoon will leave you breathless. You can look forward to regaining your voice on a trip down The Ultimate Abyss. This 10-second, 10-story intense trip is experienced while prone on a padded cushion. Neither ride is for the faint-hearted.
If you are still in search of something to do there are Broadway-style shows, shopping for souvenirs from small shops to Cartier and Bvlgari. After all that fun you can rest, relax and rejuvenate at poolside or with the special services in the spa.
A sail aboard the Harmony of the Seas is an affordable destination, even before you reach a port, that provides unique opportunities for travelers seeking, romance, adventure, a honeymoon, relaxation or a getaway with family and friends. Deals are offered on the website and some are as low as $200.00. Cruise like royalty aboard the Harmony of the Seas. #Harmonyoftheseas
