Just a few thoughts re. traveling on this ship with 4 kids -- ages 12 to 4. We stayed in the ultra spacious family suite, room 11528. We loved it, it was really spacious. It had bunk beds behind a curtain, a couch that had a trundle, and a king size bed. Also, a walk in closet that was so nice. The kids loved to sit in the porthole windows. A few tips that worked for us: we loved the specialty dining restaurants Jamie Oliver's Italian, Chops, Izumi Hibachi, and Chops. We enjoyed the food much better there than the regular dining room. We brought the kids everywhere. We had the 3 night dining package, which was great. We brought an iPad for the kids to watch during dinner. We brought water bottles to fill up and never needed them. We didn't book an excursion on 1 day at port and wish we had because everything is closed on the ship when you're at port -- no flow rider, no slides, no climbing wall, etc. We brought life jackets for our kids to use on excursions and are really glad we did. Especially for Labadee. We brought snacks for our room and didn't really need them. I ended up giving them to a nice local Haitian woman in Labadee. I wish I brought more food for the Haitian people. I gave them whatever I had (beef jerky, granola bars, applesauce) and they were so grateful for everything. I wish I had more cash to buy their goods as well. You can't get into your stateroom until 1pm, so there really is no need to get to the ship before then. The Windjammer restaurant is PACKED and most slides, etc. aren't open yet. There's a shampoo dispenser in the shower, but no other toiletries. The hair dryer was sufficient -- you have to hold down the button to make it keep working, but it was fine with our time constraints. The fortresses are definitely within walking distance from the ship on San Juan. No need to book an excursion there. No need to book an excursion on Labadee, either. The Fine Line is a must see. We loved it! The ice skating show was really cool, too. We didn't do any of the kids clubs. I'll post the cruise compass when I have the chance! Read Less

Just returned from another great RCCL cruise. Service was even better than previous cruises on Harmony. Food which has always been good, seems to have improved in quality, especially the meats. Steaks and roast beef were much improved from previous Oasis class cruises. Entertainment on Harmony is vast and offers so much for every taste and interest. Cabins are done in low key, relaxing colors. Not the largest at sea, but thoughtfully appointed; it's the small things, like hair dryers NOT attached to drawers, walls, or counters. New this voyage was a cabin refrigerator I could actually use. Was wonderful to enter the cabin (boardwalk balcony) and NOT find it packed with cruise line items for sale. Really appreciated the empty refrigerator; who wants to pay that much a night for a hotel room with a frig only to find you can not use it as the cruise line has it full of items to sell. Kudoos to RCCL ! Cabin attendant Iputu S. was among the best I have ever had. I always marvel that embarkation and debarkation on Oasis class ships is the most efficient and speedy of any ship; I attribute this to the new RCCL super terminals ! My advice to those reading this review is to give careful consideration to cabin choice. I prefer the Boardwalk neighborhood, but do tend to switch depending on the purpose of the cruise; family when young grand children are with me, solo get a way to relax, etc. While I usually book a BW cabin, I love the open, peaceful, atmosphere of central park with its live light classical concerts nightly (acoustic guitar, string quartets, keyboard) and twinkling lights of the park at night. Those who worry that the boardwalk is "too noisy", I "usually" do not find it so, having said that, because the weather/wind can effect the aqua show on the Boardwalk, and often does in the Caribbean, the shows sometimes must be postponed and are performed as late as a 10:30 start. Although not often, there can be special parties, with bands and dancing that at times last until midnight. Again, not the usual, but, for those who may have very young children with early bedtimes, or those who themselves like to turn in early on cruises, or those who just want quiet when sitting on their balcony, the boardwalk is probably not for you. I personally also very much enjoy booking Central park balcony cabins at times, but usually go back to the view of the Boardwalk for the next cruise. Read Less

This was our first Presidents Cruise and if I could only cruise once a year I would pick this cruise. The entertainment, food and general overall atmosphere was wonderful! The only drawback is the sheer number of high-level crown and anchor members aboard, this limits the number of extras those in lower levels get, you still get to attend things , but maybe not in person it may be at the Aqua theater or Studio B. In terms of things to do - one could not attend every event but the opportunity to try was there. My only criticism in the negative is that the staff was pulled in many directions with the corporate CEOs aboard and service in the dining areas for breakfast and lunch needs attention. Harmony is a huge ship and for those with disabilities, the wait time to go from floor to floor with elevators can take time. Despite any negatives, this was the best I have taken in a long time already booked for next year! Read Less
