"We went on the December 17, 2016, Harmony of the Seas cruise, sailing out of Fort Lauderdale. The following aspects of the ship were excellent: the flow rider, the common areas, the shows (especially Grease), and..."Read More

Bed was too close to the balcony when the beds are together and the bed was next to the balcony door when they were separated into twin beds and I could not open the balcony door and go out onto the balcony without kneeling on the bed first. The ship is very similar to Oasis of the seas, Allure of the seas & Symphony of the sea but with some differences. Harmony has some different stores that ...

This cruise was non stop fun and excitement! Harmony of the seas really impressed us on this one. We had a balcony cabin that was very well appointed and very clean. The ship itself was huge with entertainment to match! The zip line was short but a very cool experience being right over the boardwalk area! There was a carousel on the board walk area that was more of a novelty item, but none the ...

It was my 50th birthday and I heard so many wonderful things about these huge Oasis class of ships! I researched obsessively about what room to choose and ultimately went with Room 12599, on the starboard side of the ship overlooking Central Park. It was lovely! I have a fear of heights and don’t like balconies overlooking the water. But the balcony overlooking the park was cozy and just ...

We chose this ship because it was a newer ship and the fantastic reviews. Embarking was quick & easy. Unfortunately the only time of year we are able to go is Spring Break, we expected a lot of families and children on board. What we didn't expect was parents allowing their children to run wild all over the ship day and night. Children were allow to run through the Casino while it was ...

Firstly I just want to say how good the service was at every restaurant especially at the main dining hall. We ordered kosher food every and within minutes the food arrived. And every meal was so delicious. The ship was so big I could've been on it for another year there were so many things I didn't get to do that looked like so much fun. There was entertainment every night whether it was an aqua ...

This was my first cruise anywhere and I had no idea what to expect. I was in awe when I stepped foot on the ship. There was so much to do, that I didn’t get to see everything on the ship. Our rooms were always kept clean with some towel animals left on our bed. The Guest Service dept was incredible!! If you ever had a issue (minor or major) they would call and ask to come up to our cabin to ...

This was our first experience on the cruise. We really enjoyed the food and the entertainment. They had a great daycare and kids areas. Even though it was raining for 3 days, with the amount of activities available on the ship we didn’t even notice the bad weather. we were extremely impressed with the service. Our waiter Zaldy was incredible - he would make figures out of napkins for our kids. ...

We loved this ship! We experienced lots of new things. We rode the carousel even though we are older, we rode the rising tide bar twice, watched the bionic bartenders, saw the show Grease, Columbus the musical, the ice show, the aqua show and all were very entertaining. Our cabin steward Xavier Fernandes was exceptional, he kept our cabin 12698 spotless, made a big deal out of our anniversary, ...

19 times on oasis class ships. Lately the food has been going downhill fast. Royal listened to feed back. This April 2019 sailing on the Harmony was wonderful. The food overall was very good and the presentation was improved as well. Service in the dining room and our room steward service was wonderful. Every person we encountered was friendly. We were beyond pleasantly surprised. I ...

My mom and I went on this cruise because we wanted to try out one of the big ships, and we have to say we loved it! The way the ship is broken into neighborhoods it never felt crowded. Overall fun vacation! Embarkation and debarkation: Very smooth. We're used to other cruise lines guiding you to certain locations upon getting on the ship, but it was a free for all, figure it out yourself ...
