Review of MY Harmony G
Harmony G is a sleek, almost futuristic-looking luxury yacht in the fleet of Athens-based Variety Cruises. The ship was delivered to the company in 2001, and was completely renovated during 2009-2010 refurbishment, with changes to her public areas and cabins. Ideally sized to reach small coves, Harmony G cruises in the Mediterranean, Black Sea and Red Sea repositioning through the Suez Canal.
This cruise ship has 4 passenger decks and capacity for 43 guests. The 21 outside-only staterooms have either portholes or picture windows. Cabins are in 4 categories: A and B (on the Main Deck) and C (on Lower Deck) are determined by location. There are four P cabins (on Upper Deck) which are effectively junior suites with seating areas featuring convertible sofa beds. Cabins range from 9 to 18 m2 (99 to 193 ft2), which might seem too "cozy" based on cruise ship expectations, but is actually quite spacious for a yacht. All accommodations are decorated in soft colors and provide individual climate controls, TVs, safes, minifridges, bathrooms with hair dryers and showers, and either portholes or large windows. Beds can be doubles, queens or twins.
The sunny weather of the standard itineraries of my Harmony G means a lot of time spent outside, whether at the outdoor bar, on a sun deck lounger, or utilizing the marina platform used for water sports (kayaks and snorkeling equipment are provided).
Indoors passengers will find a comfortable lounge with adjacent bar and dining room which offers all meals in single seating. Menu items reflect region's cuisine. Breakfast and lunch are buffet-style affairs, while 3-course dinners boast table service. Cocktails and wine are available at additional cost.
Onboard entertainment is limited to TV (in the lounge and in staterooms, local channels only). The yacht offers Wi-Fi for an additional fee. A cruise coordinator provides shore excursion information and destination briefings.
