Worst cruise ever; Harmony of the Seas should be renamed Hazard on the Seas!
"We were sold this as an inaugural cruise, it was not, in fact even the cruise director alluded to it as a test voyage or words to that effect, And it certainly was testing! areas closed down, not enough seating, at..."Read More

This was me and my wife's 5th year wedding anniversary. It was great. We enjoyed everything. This was our second cruise and our first with Royal Caribbean. If there was anything that could have been better it was the food in the windjammer. It wasn't bad but it wasn't amazing at all either. It was just mediocre compared to other places on the ship that you have to pay for. We went to Izumi, ...

First, the class of Ships we were not unknown, but there is much to discover new. Everyone who said that I already know, better was taught. Here the Oasis-class was Advanced models, I would describe it as Oasis-Plus. Certainly the Department still needs more work per se, but it all worked. The Team grows. It was a wonderful trip with great weather, great for a Maiden Voyage. The Cabin, the ...

I originally booked the maiden cruise from Southampton to Barcelona long before they added the two 3 and 4 night preview cruises which I will review separately. The contrast to the 3 and 4nt cruises was amazing, with most of the contractors disembarked and 99% of things operational those just joining were all asking the same question, what could have been wrong? Ironically of the two weeks ...

Chose this 4 night cruise to experience the Harmony and be able to have a good look around her. Checking in at Southampton was just the best experience ever, from the Rail Station to Port, 5 mins in a cab, checked in Southampton by the ladies with IPads and onboard within 15 mins. We were early so cabin was not available, not a problem, we had a wander before going to The Windjammer for a ...

Trying out Harmony, the largest liner.

We chose this 'taster' three day cruise to see what the new Harmony of the Seas was like. It was advertised as the largest cruise liner. We had been on Oasis of the Seas and did not expect there would be many differences (Except for a few inches in length) but we found the twisting tube runs fun, as something new. The ship was really not ready to sail. There were workmen (mostly French) all ...

My wife and I have just returned from the maiden voyage of Royal Caribbean's Harmony of the Seas from Southampton to Barcellona sailing 29th May 2016. As you can imagine, the ship is huge, but don't let that put you off. There is so much to do, even on a sea day, you run out of time before its time for diner. With all the neighbourhoods that are availible there is always something to do. A coffee ...

I had the wonderful experience of sailing on the Maiden voyage of Harmony of the Seas sailing from Southampton. I have met some lovely friends who were lucky enough to sail on the four and three night cruises. My friends on the three night cruise had experienced some minor issues but nothing that took away from their experience on Harmony. The experience at Southampton was fun and amazing and I ...

Boarding was excellent. Great service, staff were amazing. Really great shows and entertainment. Lots to do for children. The only thing I would recommend is a ocean view balcony as not a really nice bar were you can sit and watch the sea go by. Most things on this ship are internal. The ship was kept very clean. The cabins are really nice with lots of storage, the safe is small. American and ...
