5 other transatlantic voyages on Royal Caribbean and this was by far the most disappointing. First, the food was exceptionally bland and tasteless in both the main dining rooms and the Jade and Windjammer, surprisingly even the Indian ... Read more

Boarding at Southampton was a dream compared to US ports, super-efficient, but that seemed to be the end of the good times. The cabin was clean and mostly worked though the shower had to be turned well past the red protective button to ... Read more

This was our first transatlantic and generally we enjoyed it. However it didn't start too smoothly as once onboard we noticed our sea passes were endorsed as Emerald and not Diamond as they should have been. Having seen the C&A manager ... Read more

This was our first transatlantic cruise and it won't be our last. While it wasn't our favorite cruise to date, it was a thoroughly enjoyable time. Embarkation was a breeze. In fact, we were able to board early due to the fact that the ... Read more

Overall we really liked the ship. Some nice improvements were the showers, as a plus sized woman, it was nice to have a shower that was easier to maneuver inside, the addition of the shaver bar was nice as well . We felt the room had more ... Read more

Great Entertainment. See all the shows but book online before your cruise and still arrive 30-45 minutes early for best seats. Great Speciality Restaurants. Buy the package before you cruise online. Main Dining Room. Crowded, slow ... 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

Transatlantics are best value especially when booked early. Cabin had creaking metal overhead which made it difficult to sleep. Otherwise the cabin was fine. Room attendant was very pleasant and efficient. Johnny Rockets was best for ... Read more

Of several TAs we have done over the years, this was one of the best. Our reasons were many: 1) So many nice touches were done for the passengers by the hotel director and other management, e.g. gift hats received, multiple raffles ... Read more
