Spa appointments are available for the port days only. Sea days will be available onboard.
You will need the following information to register:

Ship: Harmony of the Seas
Date: February 4, 2023
Your Royal Caribbean Reservation #:
Name EXACTLY as we have it:
Passport Number and Expiration Date

Please note that each stateroom has only one number assigned for all guests and that the Royal Caribbean Reservation Number is different from the Atlantis Confirmation number. Also, you must enter your name exactly as shown above to enter the system properly.

If a reservation number does not appear above, it means that we are still waiting for your booking number from Royal Caribbean. We will send an update email to you as soon as we receive the booking numbers.

Should you encounter trouble with Royal’s online system, please contact them directly at (866) 562-7625. Atlantis does not have access or the ability to make changes to the Royal Caribbean system. If you are not able to successfully check-in online, please do not worry as it will not affect you booking status or ability to board.

Customize Your Cruise Experience
Once you are registered, you will find many ways to customize your cruise. Royal Caribbean has added a lot of exciting options to our journey, with many new ones that haven’t been available previously. Here are some of the highlights:

• Shore Excursions are available for all our ports. We strongly recommend securing space for these in advance and have some exciting options in all four ports.
• Internet packages are available at a discount to rates onboard!
• New dining packages let you enjoy the fantastic restaurants around Harmony with huge savings. There’s even a new “unlimited dining package” that saves you almost 50%.
• Non-alcoholic beverage packages are also available

We are also pleased to announce that Royal Caribbean is offering a alcoholic beverage coupons to Atlantis guests onboard. See the next section for details!

Although you may book most of the above packages onboard, booking online will save time get you exactly what you want in advance. Most have plenty of availability, but there is always that chance that some options will sell out. All cruise options will be available until February 1.

New! Beverage Packages Available Now
We’re thrilled to announce that Royal Caribbean will once again offer alcoholic beverage packages to Atlantis guests. You can purchase a package of 20 drink coupons in advance for just $225, with each coupon valid for up to a $14 drink at any bar. The coupons may also be used to buy 2 non-alcoholic beverages.

We used a similar system on our recent Odyssey and Navigator charters and the response was overwhelming. Not only did it speed up service considerably, but you enjoy a substantial savings. And of course, the coupons can be easily shared by friends!

Since Royal Caribbean’s booking site can’t handle coupons yet (long story), we’re making it easy and letting you add the packages directly to your Atlantis reservation and the coupon books will be available for express pickup on our first day onboard.

To purchase beverage packages in advance, please sign into your Atlantis account here and follow the steps below:

https://res.atlantisevents.com/Booking/Account/LogOn

1. Click on Your Upcoming Reservation by clicking your name that appears on the top right corner of the webpage.
2. After that, choose “View/Modify” under your Harmony Cruise reservation. You will then be directed to your reservation summary, with “Add More Options” available at the bottom of the page.
3.From there, click Add Drink Tickets and you will be able to purchase drink tickets accordingly

A few restrictions apply and Royal’s standard 18% gratuity is added to the coupon book at time of purchase. The rates on our website are the same as you will pay onboard, but onboard it will take a lot longer to get the packages!

So, what happens next? On Friday we’ll send out a final email with updated arrival information and tips to make your first day go smoothly.

Thank you again for choosing Atlantis for your vacation. We are looking forward to seeing you all onboard Harmony for this amazing journey.

Warm regards,
Rich, James Q, James X, Malcolm, and the rest of your Atlantis family

Your Party Themes
We have a lot of exciting entertainment planned onboard, including some ridiculously fun parties! Here’s a preview of the major theme nights during your cruise. As with all our events, costumes are completely optional – we want you to be comfortable and enjoy yourself as you are.  You’ll have a great time no matter what!

Mother Earth Our planet needs some love and care, so tonight, we celebrate the beauty of the elements around us: Fire, Water, Earth, Sky. Be a literal element or a person that’s surrounded by one, or just come as an original citizen of the world! Let’s try to cool down Mother Earth with some creativity and craziness.
Into the Jungle We’re going deep tonight into uncharted territory, where things are as wild as it gets. In the only jungle at sea, you’ll find scantily clad native wannabees, dangerous animal prints, hunters without mobile services, and maybe some strangely moving foliage. Follow the beats to the dance floor and watch out for the occasional castaway cruise ship passenger.
Playground Fast, flashy, bright, and silly! We’re turning the Theater into a musical playground filled with bouncy sounds that are sure to bring a smile to your face. Neon, sparkles, and lights are the way to go tonight, and don’t take anything too seriously!
White Dreams Let your imagination run wild at Atlantis’ pinnacle party. Celebrate the joys of harmony in our community by dressing up or down in one simple color that everyone looks good in. Be as creative as your dreams, as sexy as your desires, as irreverent as your laughs, or keep it simple with your favorite white shorts. All are welcome here at an epic party that takes you into dawn and beyond!
Dog Tag T-Dance The troops come home for Atlantis’ longest-running signature afternoon party. Show your creative strength at our first big outdoor party inspired by the joys of men in (small) uniforms. We’ll provide souvenir dog tags, you do the rest.
Disco Daze T-Dance Disco lives on as we take you back to the glory days of the 70s with an afternoon of pure musical magic on the dance floor. Artificial fabrics, excess facial hair, oversized shoes, and other obnoxious accessories welcome!
Over the Rainbow T-Dance This one isn’t just about Dorothy or a scary multicolor tube-top from Pride. But that’s a start. Show up as a singular color from your own personal rainbow, an Oz-like inspiration, or the worst combination of colors you can pull together. And if you’re just “over” the rainbow, come as you are and enjoy!

What happens next?  We’ll send an update about 2 weeks before departure with your Cruise Vacation Guide containing a full preview of our entertainment and how to prepare for this exciting adventure.

Until then, we hope 2023 is off to a great start for you and cannot wait to see you all in Ft Lauderdale. Thank you again for choosing Atlantis for your holiday and get ready for a great time!

Warm regards,
Rich, James Q, James X, Malcolm, and the rest of your Atlantis family

Communications Timeline

About Three Weeks Before Departure
Register for your cruise with the instructions that we’ll provide by email. You’ll need to provide passport information and other details directly to our cruise lines to complete your registration. We typically send out this information by email about a month prior to sailing. If you’re booking within a month of departure, it might take a little longer for us to add you to the cruise line’s manifest.

Pre-Order Shore Excursions. We work closely with our cruise lines to create exciting shore excursions just for our guests. These optional tours are the best way to see these amazing places in the company of your friends onboard. Space is often limited, so booking in advance is the best way to plan!

Review our preliminary schedule including party themes. We try to keep our party themes simple enough that you don’t have to worry about them long in advance. You can create a sensational outfit, shop for something fun, or simply come as you are — either way you’ll fit right in and have a great time. Themes for your cruise will be sent by email and posted right here on the “Already Booked” page about 4 weeks prior to departure.

Two Weeks Before Departure
Read Our Cruise Vacation Guide with valuable information about your ship, the entertainment, our ports, packing advice, and so much more. We’ll notify you by email once this document is available for download.

The Last Days Before Departure
Check your email for any last-minute communications regarding boarding advice, weather updates, parties in our departure city, and other things that might come up.
