Thanks to Hurricane Dorian, what was suppose to be a seven night trip to St Maarten, St Thomas, and Coco Cay turned into a three night journey to Nassau. We were very grateful to be able to board the Harmony at all, since the date of embarkation had to be moved forward twice due to the storm and the closure of the port. The loss of life and destruction endured by the islands that were hit by Dorian weighed heavily on our minds throughout the trip.

Day One Orlando

The port reopened on Wednesday, the day we flew into Orlando (after rescheduling our flight twice). We stayed at the nearby Courtyard and took the shuttle back to the airport on Thursday. We were transferred to the port by Go Port, which had a wonderful staff updating their website with information regarding the port closure, reopening, and information on their shuttles. Unfortunately, I had booked the airport to port in advance, and gave updates to customer service regarding our new projected dates of embarkation. When we arrived to board the bus to the port, our reservation wasn’t showing up. The customer service reps at the airport counter told us to call customer service for help. Ok. We did, and that rep said that she had thought we had been taken to the port already the previous day. Really? The port was not even open in the morning, and no ships were coming in because the port staff needed time on Wednesday to inspect the port thoroughly before reopening. Finally we had the customer service person on the phone fix our reservation so that the customer service people at the counter who were waiting for her to do something for us, at last gave us tickets for the bus. My advice: just buy your ticket at the counter when you arrive- much simpler.

Cabin Review

Central Park View Balcony

Cabin 2J

One of the few cabins to host a double balcony due to the fact that there is no cabin located directly next door. Very spacious cabin. The balcony contained a table and two chairs, plus two lounge chairs. Nice bathroom with a roomier shower. The cabin is big enough to move around with ease, and you had the option of relaxing on the sofa inside, or lounging on a lounger outside.

Port Reviews

Nassau

DH and I walked around the shopping area before stopping at Señor Frog's. A lot has change since we were here in the 80s. Many high end shops, places to buy gifts for friends back home, and various dining options.
