This was the second stop of the cruise itinerary. I walked around, but Falmouth is very small. There are a lot of shops around the port, but if you want to go to the beach, you must take a tour.
The Harmony of the seas is the perfect cruise for kids. I went with my nephew who is 8 years old and he had a blast.
Rock climbing wall
Theater, I watched the premiere of Trolls and Mrs Peregrine home for peculiar children
Ultimate Abyss slide
There are also water slides, kids pool with games, video arcade and a kids club that kids will enjoy and have fun.
Kids will love it and families can relax while traveling.
A week ago I spent Thanksgiving with my family at the Harmony of the seas.
The special menu was delicious
Turkey , the star of the night
Last but not least, pecan pie with ice cream
There was also pumpkin pie which was delicious as well
It was the first time to spend thanksgiving at a cruise and it was wonderful.
There are so many things to eat at a cruise that after cruising I need to go to the gym, probably after holidays, so next year^^
I tried to eat a little bit and not so bit of everything, but there is so much food, its impossible.
Let’s start with breakfast
From the buffet
This was at Johnny Rockets
Coffee , pastry and a book
Salmon from the main dining, there is also a small buffet for lunch
The buffet at the Windjammer restaurant
At the Solarium restaurant there is a buffet and the Park cafe have paninis and salads
My dinner was programmed at 8.30 pm, so at 5 pm I ate nachos or chili fries
Main dinning dinner
Shrimp with panko
Lobster with vegetables and mashed potatoes
Filet mignon with mushroom and vegetables
The Solarium has a buffet and a la carte, but the menu is the same everyday and The windjammer has a buffet.
There was a 24hour café with pastries and sandwiches and a pizza place open until late at night.
And the best part, everything was complimentary^^
Harmony of the Seas a larger version of Oasis of the seas and Allure of the seas. I loved it and recommend it to everyone ! Here my favorite decks

Iam back from my cruise trip.
Harmony of the Seas the biggest cruise on earth.
It is very similar to the Oasis of the Seas and The Allure of the Seas, but it has the tallest slide on sea and three water slides, kids will love it.
The food was great, I will talk more about it in a different post. The shows were incredible, specially Grease and the service was excellent!
Yesterday was the independence day of Peru and to celebrate I ate a Cebiche or Ceviche, the most famous peruvian dish. Ceviche is not a salad, it doesnt come with tomatoes, if its white is not so good. It probably means the fish is not so fresh.
There are a lot of cevicherias and many ways to prepare it. For me ceviche must be simple just fish, salt, lime juice, garlic and peruvian aji pepper, sometimes little ginger if it’s nikkei style. Not marinated, if the fish meat is white, it means it was cooked by the lime juice and the taste will be different, ceviche should be eaten right away after it is prepared. In the local markets it is white because it is already prepared in advance.
It is ok to eat it, but for me the taste is heavier.
Fresh fish is important to prepare ceviche, a variety of fresh fish and seafood can be found at the local markets. It is possible to order ceviche mixto which is fish and seafood ceviche.
Combine with peruvian corn and sweet potato, mouthwatering…
This is a very healthy dish.
If you eat ceviche in other countries, it may be different, they may have their own versions of ceviche, but the real one is in Peru.
Happy independence day Peru!
If you see a sign that says chifa,
it means chinese restaurant in Peru.
The chinese food in Peru is delicious, peruvians are in love with chifas, so much you will see more chifas than peruvian restaurants, they say you can see one every corner in commercial streets.
Sundays are full with families, some eat once a week at their favorite Chifa.
The chinese food style here is from Canton.
My favorite chifa in Lima is Titi and Hou Wha, if you go to Titi dont forget to make reservations in advance.
The wantan soup at Titi is extremely delicious with pork, duck and chicken.
Taipa a mix of beef, chicken, shrimp and duck with veggies hmmmm is also a good choice.
Iam hungry again!
Peru is also famous for their japanese and Nikkei restaurants. More than 80,000 descendants of japanese are living in Peru. They contributed to the local cuisine bringing a japanese flavor to the most famous dishes.
One of the most famous chef that has worked in Peru is Nobu Matsuhisa, while working at a japanese restaurant, he combined the peruvian and japanese ingredients making it a wonderful fusion.
One of my favorite restaurants is Hanzo Conquistadores in San Isidro. You can try a lot of japanese peruvian fusion here.
Everything was fresh and delicious
Price is not so expensive, $20 – 30 per person. In the US this would cost $60-$100 per person, so dont miss it if you travel to Peru.
And of course a plate of desserts
