Harmony of the Seas - Family Fun at Sea!

As a part of our ongoing commitment to our clients, Purple Palm Vacations spends a lot of time learning about popular destinations by visiting them firsthand. Recently we had the pleasure of sailing on one of the largest cruise ships at sea on a 7 night Eastern Caribbean sailing adventure. This ship impressed us with its spectacular entertainment, wide variety of fun activities, and a surprising lack of crowds, considering the number of guests and crew on the ship. 

We Recommend This Ship For:  Families with kids of all ages, Multi Generations and Groups
