NEW SHIP NEW PLAYGROUND
Ahoy from GayTravel's Cruise Guru! I am writing from the biggest and boldest ship out there, Harmony of the Seas. The newest member of the fleet is the most innovative cruise ship in the world! She is touted as the ultimate destination for travelers looking for the perfect combination of adrenaline-pumping experiences and relaxation. Royal Caribbean's newest ship arrived for the first time at her homeport of Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, FL on November 5, and I am so thrilled to have been invited to be part of her exclusive naming ceremony. Just when I thought they could not possibly raise the bar and push the limits of my imagination any further,
Royal Caribbean International has blown me away yet again! To read more about my first voyage on Harmony, click here and you will see it was a smashing success!
