This was our first voyage on an Oasis class ship. Overall, we had a great time. The ship can be overwhelming but there was a lot to choose from. The first thing I would recommend is to get on early, find a place to camp out and get on the app and make your event reservations for events during the cruise. The staff was outstanding during the entire cruise, I did feel bad for them having to ...

This cruise had the following itinerary: Depart Port Canaveral, two ocean days, one day in St Maarten, one day in St Thomas USVI, another ocean day, one day in Coco Cay, returning to Port Canaveral the following morning. We have done several Royal Caribbean cruises in the past. The cruise was fun but not great, especially after two years cooped up due to COVID. This cruise was our second time ...

Harmony itself was great but you can tell they are still struggling to get on their feet post Covid. The good: We had a great cabin attendant. As usual my family of four (two adults and two teenagers) put him through the ringer with keeping up and he didn't disappoint. Cabin was perfect the entire time. This service is what we've come to love about RCCL. The Windjammer is good for grab ...

The staff's English was not that great. Passengers did Not have to wear masks crew did which is stupid as they all are about to get mandatory 4th booster. Staff don't feel or act as a team. All very sperate departments. Example, getting a latte and the bakery share the same counter. You walk up to the counter where the employee is alone and ask for a latte she points to the other employee who ...

We sailed on the Oasis in July 2018--were very impressed. We liked the big ship atmosphere & food-service. Had booked a 2020 trip on Harmony, but COVID caused the trips to be cancelled, so this trip was a make-up for that one. I completed all documents I could on line before sailing. Wife completed the remainder on her Royal App. This made check-in very quick. Only 3500 pass . on ship ...

We were very excited to try out a large ship and Royal Caribbean, having only been on Carnival in the past. I can't believe how shocked we were with how much further ahead in service, amenities, and overall quality this ship was to our previous Carnival cruises. This made my fifth cruise overall, so I felt confident in comparing the two against each other on the first impressions and knowing what ...

I am trying to get someone to address the lack of vegetarian food options. I had 3 night dinning package and 4 at coastal kitchen. Very limited options for vegetarian and special requests could not be accommodated even with advance notice . Had one special dish the chef at coastal prepared that was nice. Buffet at lunch had salad. The server told me pasta was vegetarian, but it had pork. ...

My wife and I booked our cruise last September on Harmony of the Seas basically for three reasons: 1) We wanted to cruise on a newer and larger RC ship, 2) the itinerary to St. Johns was originally included, and 3) the price was right for a balcony. We hoped the Covid mess would be long gone by January, 2022. We even Royal-upped our room by placing a bid on an upgraded ocean balcony which we ...

Back to cruising! This was out second cruise this year, the Covid year. We were on the Carnival Elation in October. We chose this cruise because the were giving away cruises and it fell on out 40th anniversary. We are Vaxed, and boosted, and the price was great. We drive down to Port Canaveral when we leave from here. Much less stressful to get to the port. Parking structure was ...

We had sailed on the Symphony 2 years ago and loved everything, especially our evening at Wonderland. When we booked this cruise, I,of course, made another reservation to go to Wonderland. Our first experience was so much fun and delicious food. However, it was quite the opposite this time. There were 9 of us and they put us at 2 tables next to each other rather thane large table. Didn't feel ...
