Fantastic feedback for our Cruise experts

Dear Danny

Just a short note to say a big thank

you for your advice and putting

together of our most recent

wonderful trip, a cruise & stay to

Beijing, 17 day Grand Asia and 4

days in Singapore. It was the best

trip we have done; the weather in

Beijing was crisp and clear because

of APEC, we were so lucky to be

there whilst it was on. The

cruise was out of this world,

such an eye opener; we

even had Japanese food

and used the chopsticks.

We also had Indian,

Chinese and Malaysian

food in Singapore which

we really loved, and it was

really easy to get about

on the MRT (metro) as it

was in Hong Kong for two

days. The Plaza hotel in Beijing was

centrally based and the included

tours were expertly run. The Great

Wall was the highlight here, the air

was crisp, sunny and visibility clear.

The Lavender Hotel in Singapore

was right next door to the MRT and

the staff there were very helpful,

couldn't do enough for us. So once

again Danny you have gone 200%

to make our holiday absolutely

brilliant. You have surpassed

yourself this time as it is the best

experience we have ever had. We

will be in contact very soon to book

again with you, haven't decided

where to go in 2015 yet.

P.S And a fantastic price too!

New Generation Oasis-Class Ship

Harmony of the SeasSM unveils new

thrills & adventures

Royal Caribbean International's new

generation Oasis-class ship, Harmony of

the Seas, is set to launch in April 2016.

The third in the Oasis class of ships -

currently the largest cruise ships in the

world - will continue the award-winning

cruise line's philosophy of innovation

and imagination to offer a unique

vacation adventure for guests. "We are

most amazing collection of experiences,

amenities and activities at sea. Guests

can test their mettle on the ship's three

multi-story waterslides, all of which twist

and turn over Central Park 10 below.

One of the slides also will feature a

champagne bowl that swirls guests

around as they make their approach to

the end of the ride.

"The Oasis class ships continue to

astound and delight both new and

experienced cruisers. They shatter

preconceived notions of what cruising

can be and continue to stand in a

category by themselves," said Richard

D. Fain, Chairman and CEO, Royal

Caribbean Cruises Ltd. "With Harmony

of the Seas, we are making the most

exciting experience at sea even better."

Harmony of the Seas also will feature a

new Bionic Bar on the Royal Promenade.

The Bionic Bar was first introduced

aboard Quantum of the Seas, and

feature robot bartenders serving up oneof-a-kind crafted cocktails while dancing

to a fluid beat. Additionally, guests

onboard Harmony of the Seas will enjoy

RFID technology with Royal WOWBands

that provide them access to their

staterooms as well as make onboard

purchases and reservations. Like her

sisters, Harmony also will feature the

fastest Internet connection at sea where

guests can stream video; Skype with

family and friends back at home; and

share their vacation memories through

social media instantly while at sea.
