We have travelled on the Oasis, Independence and Allure all of which were exceptional. Therefore, we expected the same on the newest ship the Harmony. The ship itself is gorgeous. However, we found that the variety of shopping was much ... Read more

Just loved this ship. We were travelling with friends and it was their first cruise so I was a little bit concerned that this ship may have been too big but we couldn't have been more wrong. The ship is designed in such a way that you ... Read more

I had booked this cruise before the ship was built and was regretting it based on the negative reviews. But, I have to say, while SOME of the negative points were well founded, I did have a really nice vacation. Here's my experience (as ... Read more

We had to make a last minute change from another cruise line to this one due to medical issues and had never sailed with Royal Caribbean before- the day we got on the ship we were bombarded with requests to purchase specialty dining ... Read more

What a disappointment from previous RC cruises. The food quantity and selection has been cut by at least two-thirds in the Windjammer and various other places. There are not enough tables in the Windjammer on cruise days and breakfast ... Read more

Being a curious cruiser I wanted to get to know the ship. It was just too crowded, everywhere. Just too many people even for a ship of this size. You had to qeue up most everywhere. Except for the paid restaurants the service was poor. ... Read more
