I went on this cruise as part of a group that owns franchises in Florida. While I never complain about a cruise because I love them so much, the Explorer of the Seas had some flaws. We had a balcony stateroom which was great. Inyoman our ... Read more

We chose this cruise as we were first time cruisers, who live in FL. We wanted a fairly quick cruise that would take us somewhere different. Nice ship. We knew it was an older ship prior to the trip. Majesty was clean and well ... Read more

My husband and I appreciate a "family" atmosphere, even though we have no children. We don't do modern comedy and we don't drink any alcohol. We enjoyed ourselves in the Deck 4 outside seating, when we could find a seat and the ... Read more

Great value with RC kicking in forth night free. This is a very old ship with a $50 mil. new paint job. The crew is poor even for the budget cruise market. Dining staff is the best, they try but somehow manage to always miss the mark. ... Read more

We chose the cruise for the destinations. Which on 50% of the time was as expected. The others were not as advertised. We had to pay extra to get into the local towns, even when using their shuttle services. In Dubrovnik, they charged $12 ... Read more

This is one of many cruises we have done. The Navigator of the seas feels old and tired. We had a suite for the first time as a special treat and as we had a third person with us. Whilst roomy the sofa bed was very uncomfortable and needed ... Read more

We are prior RC's Oasis and Freedom class cruisers, as well as Holland, Disney & Princess travelers. In summary, bigger is not always better. This sip is almost too big for its own good. Quality & consistency in service is lacking. ... Read more

Where to start. Embarkation was a cattle call. Everyone waited for almost 2 hours even with assigned times. Purchases that were paid and were to be in the cabin, were not and I had to go to guest services and "prove" paid for ... Read more

We chose this cruise for a family vacation with kids beginning at age 6 and adults up to 71 years old. This boat had something for everyone and was fantastic. We stayed in 6300, towards the back of the ship. We never felt any roll or ... Read more

We were on the Harmony of the Seas for a 7 day Med cruise from Rome departing Rome on July 14, 2016. My rating on the ship and cruise is really 4.5 stars (but I couldn't figure-out how to show that in the star rating above). Overall ... Read more

Harmony of the Seas is a new ship. As a new ship. It has many options. It also has many people - about 6,000. It has approximately 2,500 crew. Sometimes it seems like it is not crowded. Other times not so. When I talk to friends and ... Read more
