Our 15 Day Amazing and Magical Mediterranean Vacation

5/5 (2)

Sailing the mediterranean aboard rccl harmony of the seas

first class trip AA to Barcelon, Spain
Harmony of the Seas, Largest Cruise Ship in the Word!

We departed from MIA to Barcelona, Spain on American Airlines. We normally fly First Class if the flight is more than 2 hours. As you can see Master Giovanni was happy with this decision. The flight aboard American Airlines, I must admit was pretty amazing. We landed in Barcelona feeling well rested and ready to board, the largest cruise ship on earth, Harmony of the Seas.

We were in awe when our driver pulled up next to this mammoth ship. It was a world within itself. We were so excited to board this beautiful ship and were ready for our 15 day European vacation. It would consist of 7 days aboard Harmony of the Seas, 4 days in Roses, Spain and 4 days in Barcelona, Spain.

Upon boarding Harmony of the Seas, I was more impressed! It was huge, yet never felt crowded. With almost 5500 passengers aboard, it is crazy how we never felt crowded, nor did we have to wait in line for meals or shows. As you can see from our picture, it felt as we had the ship to ourselves. Keep in mind we traveled during prime time, which was for July 4th holidays.

Since it was our first day aboard the Harmony of the Seas, we decided to continue our healthy diet with salads and a wrap but decided to pop open a bottle of Champagne to celebrate the beginning of our magical journey. C’est la vie!

We had so many amazing meals aboard Harmony of the Seas, in reality all of our meals were amazing. Of course the highlight of our cruise was our dinner at Wonderland.

We spent 7 days aboard this beauty. We did choice a busy itinerary, as we were out at sea 1 day out of 7. We felt we needed a week aboard the ship to be able to enjoy all of the amenities Harmony of the Seas has to offer. While the food was amazing, we were able to stay fit and active with all of the activities and amenities Harmony of the Seas has to offer. From Golf, gym, water slides, dancing and so much more.

Make sure to read Day 1 as we arrive at our first stop, Palma de Mallorca.

Until then, ciao, i like to move it, move it!

    Although I have been on cruises before, I have honestly never seen a cruise ship this big. It’s impressive!! I love that your vacation was part sea, part land and you were able to see so much. It makes me want to add it to my vacation wish list!

    • Evelyn Hernandez

    What an incredible vacation! The slide looks soooo cool – I want to go on it. Did you find that because you were on a cruise, you didn’t get to experience as much culture?

    • Evelyn Hernandez

      Posted 2018-07-28 2:32 pm

      Not at all, we did experience the culture, also keep in mind half of the vacation was spent on land.

    It’s amazing you manage to stay fit and eat healthy despite the busy itineraries and mouth watering foods…..

    • Evelyn Hernandez

    Im obsessed with the Med but never considered the cruise option because I thought it might get a bit claustrophobic bit this looks great and like you said never felt crowded. Sounds fab.

    • Evelyn Hernandez

      Posted 2018-07-27 9:05 pm

      Not crowded at all, maybe a smaller ship might give you the claustrophobic feeling, but Harmony of the seas as ample space.

    I cruised the Med with Oceania Cruises and it was legit my favorite vacation of ALL TIME – I would have not changed a THING! Cruising is 10000% the only way to travel in my personal opinion and I cannot wait to do it again ASAP!
