Flatters to Deceive

Review for MSC Meraviglia to Transatlantic

This was my first and probably last MSC cruise. It's a pity because the ship itself has some good points and the ports of call were fantastic. We picked the ship up in Southampton along with what it turns out a lot of new crew who took a couple of days to come to terms with things. Staff were very polite and willing to assist if possible. We had a balcony cabin which was kept spotless ...

Selected this cruise to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary so special occasion = the Yacht Club experience. I'm so glad I chose the YC as the rest of the ship was just way too big for me. One of the reasons I paid so much for YC was priority embarkation and disembarkation. Unfortunately there was no priority embarkation at Kiel, despite what I'd been told beforehand and it really was ...

We are on a trans Atlantic crossing from Barcelona to Fort Lauderdale on the inaugural cruise of Royal Caribbean's Harmony of the Seas. We chose a balcony room overlooking the Boardwalk - #11723. The room is quite spacious - the king size bed is close to the balcony with two very small nightstands with no drawers. The bedding is very comfortable. There is plenty of storage space - room ...

World’s largest cruise ship – Transatlantic

After some twenty cruises aboard Azamara and Celebrity ships, we had an urge to try the world’s largest cruise ship, Harmony of the Seas. We are avid readers of Cruise Critic, and we really had no prior expectations regarding this ship. There are three companies under one umbrella – Azamara at the top of the list (in both price and quality), followed by Celebrity and then Royal Caribbean (RCCL), ...

A beautiful ship, no doubt about that. No doubt that it is large. I am one of those cruisers who loves to see the body of water on which I'm sailing on. I felt that was missing on this newest RCI ship, if I wanted to be in a atmosphere of forced sunlight I would go to Las Vegas. What happened to the windows on the Schooner Bar? There were lots of activities to keep one busy so no fear there. I can ...

We have over 18 cruises under our belt. But this ship topped them all. We were privileged to cruise the historic trip from Spain to Ft. Lauderdale and witnessed first-hand the coming together of Allure and Oasis with the Harmony in Ft. Lauderdale. What an experience! And what a beautiful and well-appointed ship. Despite the 6,000 passengers, we did not feel crowded or boxed-in. The food was ...

We were nervous about this ship as we usually prefer Radiance class ships which are rather smaller but the ship was fantastic and the entire cruise was great. We never felt that the ship was too big, and the ambiance and the extra facilities were wonderful. The shows were outstanding and the use of new technologies helped immensely . Really enjoyed the abyss and water slides with no queues but I ...

Over half the passengers were Diamond and above.. Although they opened most bars and restaurants for drinks and coffee.. the clubs were sometimes standing room only.. I believe they did the best they could. In the dining room it seemed you could not get food delivered to the table hot .. unfortunately service was not up to par. It was obvious that the dining room was not running well for some ...

Our embarkation went very smoothly as did disembarkation. Disembarkation was slower than embarkation but considering the number of passengers this was expected. The Diamond lounge was pathetic, even with 3 venues open they could not accommodate the number of members on board (approximately 2600) the Diamond Concierge had a few members that he clicked with and would spend the time socializing ...

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. The balcony cabins are very nice. There is so much to do. The Zip line, though short, is great. There is a very nice mini golf course, along with ping pong, ...
