Chose this cruise for the itinerary. Initially we were concerned about the small ship size but actually found we loved the more intimate setting. Other than embarkation day, this ship does not pressure you to buy drink or restaurant ... Read more

We did this as our honeymoon. Stateroom: We had a room with a balcony. It was smaller but the perfect size for two people. We didn't get to use the balcony much because the sun didn't really hit it much but it was so nice to have ... Read more

Chose this cruise as it had the port destination of interest. Really wanted to see Barcelona, so it made sense to leave from Barcelona. Embarkation & Disembarkation were amazing. No hassles. Easy and no queues. Brilliance of ... Read more

Service was great is most areas of the ship, but the quality of the food in the main dining room was very average - one or two good meals but the vast majority mediocre at best. Speciality dining good - Chefs table a real treat and Chops ... Read more

This was a figment of what an RCCL cruise should be. I've done RCCL cruising before, and cruised with others, this was not up to par. Crew service was one of the two items that was on point for this cruise the second item was what drew me ... Read more

Recently we have booked most of our cruises based on the ship. We love both the Quantum Class and the Oasis Class ships. A cruise on another type of ship to us is now boring. The Harmony of the Seas is terrific. She is beautiful. ... Read more

This was our 3rd T/A and 17th cruise with RCCL; we have had some excellent experiences, but this is the best so far. Beautiful ship and a wonderful crew. As with most things it is all about leadership; Captain Gus is far more than a nice ... Read more
