Great Ship, Wonderful Service, Even full (6700 passengers) it did not feel crazy crowded. We ate mostly in the MDR thought the food was good. Really enjoyed the Mediterranean Food at the Solarium Bistro for Dinner. We like to eat lunch in the MDR on sea days, but the menu was pretty limited - the great thing is there’s a buffet in there that you can also use if you don’t see what you like on the menu. Windjammer was pretty busy for breakfast- we tried to eat at the MDR when we had time. Saw most of the shows, they were ok, the standout was Grease. The ship is great for families. We loved Labadee - did the Dragons Breath ZipLine - really enjoyed it. We took a taxi to Paradise Beach in Cozumel - it was fantastic. Climbed the Dunn’s River Falls in Jamaica - loved it! Our favorite neighborhood was Central Park - it’s beautiful and never very crowded. Read Less

I had previously been on the Allure of the Seas ship twice, before I heading on Harmony. I felt excited to go on another cruise that was very similar to Allure, since that experience was amazing. I have two kids, one 14 years old and the other 11. They were excited to explore what activities the ship had to offer, for example the Ultimate Abyss, which was an adult version of the slides at McDonald’s, the fantastic water slides, and even the pizza at Sorrento’s. The shows were very well put together and it was never boring to watch. The Central Park was very beautiful and it was great for taking pictures. The food was very good it had many different cuisines from different countries. The service was amazing the waiters were very nice and generous. Also when I checked in and out it was very fast and smooth. I personally think that the cruise was very fun and exciting, I am very sure I will be coming back in 2019 on Symphony of the seas.

We are return cruisers with Royal Caribbean, and has yet another amazing experience. Everything from the waitstaff to the port experiences were beyond incredible. We thoroughly enjoyed our Central Park Balcony Stateroom and all of the services we experienced during the week. The bartenders, dining room waitstaff, stateroom attendants, spa staff, activities staff, and the overall ship was an unforgettable experience. We had a great time at Royal Caribbean’s Labadee, Haití port. It was very updated and easily accessible for everyone who disembarked the ship. The disembarkation and re embarkation processes were very organized and smooth at each port. In addition, the Falmouth, Jamaica and Cozumel, Mexico ports were just as enjoyable. We were with a large travel group not directly affiliated with Royal Caribbean, but long-time travelers with the the cruise line. Through our private group, we took excursions in Jamaica and Mexico, which we really enjoyed. Overall, I will always recommend Royal Caribbean to those interested in cruising. We are already planning our next cruise with Royal Caribbean! Read Less

I chose to cruise in order to de-stress, relax and enjoy a family vacation. Our experience on board Harmony of the Seas was truly that of royalty. It began at check-in. We were checked-in and on the ship by 10:30a.m. Our rooms were ready prior to the designated time of 1pm. The thermal suite package from Vitality Spa provided daily pampering services. We also enjoyed the early seating at all of the entertainment and activities we attended; therefore, we always had great seats. There was so much to do that you could never get bored. The ports (Labadee, Jamaica, and Mexico) offered a nice getaway from the cruise ship and good deals for shopping. No worries at all. Received royal treatment from room attendant, dining attendant, guest services, and all of the other staff that we were in contact with. We have booked next year's cruise and has started the countdown all over again for another amazing vacation. Read Less

Size of the ship and it gave our grandchildren flexibility for so many options. Their isn't enough time to do everything in a week you want to do. The evening dinning experience was outstanding and our waiters go out of there way to make sure everything is to your pleasure. We ate at 5:30 every night in the main dinning room and Pablo and Prashant are so good you want to take them home with you. Everyone is friendly and go out of their way to make you feel important. With grandchildren it is sometimes hard to find entertainment they like but on this ship the ice show, water show, plays were things they enjoyed and in the past they didn't even want to go see the entertainment. There ages ranged from 13 to 21 so they are picky. We thought the cruise ship was going to be too big but it was perfect for this sailing. Read Less

I chose this cruise based on great feed back from a good friend and she was the best travel agent every through xtreme travel . I loved the ship activities and fine dining. The guest service personnel can be better with billing however overall decent experience. I love the room service Yopi was great and dining server Melissa Jackson was awesome as well #! Over my family friends and I had a great time . Would do it again :) The ports of calls was great and things were conveniently located from and back to ship . The deals we got were great and rock bottom. The only thing with islanders they were a little agressive on their selling tactics but manageable. The free give aways were great but a little time consuming. The shows were awesome with the cruise director he was funny as well. Overall #awesome deal :) Read Less

We were so disappointed when we learned ( after we boarded) we had to book all on board shows ahead of time.- we didn't get the full experience of the cruise. When I called RC, they wanted to help me book excursions, but they never said--{hey can we help you book your shows on board). When you are on vacation, you hope you have some flexibility in your schedule---That is what VACATION is all about. Everything was extra, no room service without a cost. The formal dining was awful,what happened to the waiters that were all about service . . That was not how it used to be. The buffet was good! Compared to years past, the food in the main dining rooms was so below average. What a disappointment for the money---no more cruising with you for us.. We have been cruising with you since 1991--the quality has dropped so much yet the prices keep going up. We sailed from Ft Lauderdale 5/26/18 with 8 of us in total, 3 of which have never cruised. Royal Caribbean was always our go to cruise line, but no more. We will be looking for a cruise line that meets our needs and is upfront about the costs.. Read Less

Wow, this ship is fantastic. If you're thinking of booking this ship, it might be because you feel the ship itself is the destination. If you agree with that statement, then book it and be amazed when you step onto the Harmony of the Seas. The shows and entertainment are top notch. Grease is truly a Broadway-like experience. The Fine Line water acrobatics show is not in the same league as Cirque's "O" at the Bellagio or The Wynn's "La Reve" but it's enjoyable. You'll have the best experience if you make reservations for all the shows you want to see ahead of time via the cruise planner on the Royal Caribbean website, as they get "sold out" and it looks frustrating for non-reservation holders to have to wait outside in a line, while reservation holders just walk right in to choose their seat. While the dining options are numerous, many come with an additional fee. The included (non-fee) dining options are great, however, most dining venues close by 9:00 PM. So, if you are hungry after that time, your only options are pizza, some sandwiches and desserts from Cafe Promenade, or room service at a fee of about $8 per delivery (but order as much as you want within that delivery). No midnight buffets or 24 hour soft-serve machine access on these Oasis-class ships unfortunately. Also, DO NOT EAT AT SABOR, unless you like the idea of paying $25 per person for sub-par Mexican tacos/quesadillas and side dishes (but the fresh guac, chips, and churro were great. Just not worth the cost). If you want to stay in shape while at sea, worry not, as the gym facilities were excellent. The free weight selection was limited, as I tried to duplicate my 5x5 stronglift routine while on the cruise, and had to find machines that could substitute certain exercises that normally required free weights. The weights were also very crowded after 7:30 AM on some days, so get there early. The running track is excellent since it goes around almost the entire circumference of the ship, and the view of the ocean on the aft side is breathtaking early in the morning during your run. Getting off the ship at ports was sometimes pleasant and easy, sometimes extremely disorganized and slow. Communication of when you could get off the ship was equally inconsistent. And there is no priority disembarking for excursion customers (or I couldn't find any information on it -- seems to be inconsistent online, and was given no information when booking my excursion), so you're on your own to fight the rest of the crowd to get off the ship and make it to your excursion if you booked the earliest time slot. Excursions are priced too high. Want to go on a food tour on St Maarten? Over $100 per person. Want a walking tour of Old San Juan and Fort San Cristobal in Puerto Rico? $50 per person, or you could just walk there yourself and pay $7 to get into the fort. Snorkeling excursions are $80-100, where on Carnival, they were $40-60 for a similar experience. I don't see any reason to justify the higher cost. I loved that the Wowband and the Royal IQ phone app were available on this ship, as it was not available when I sailed on Allure of the Seas. The Wowband, acts as your room key card around the ship, but it's on your wrist for super convenience when going to the pool, or opening your stateroom. Officially, it costs $5, but we were never charged (awesome). The Royal IQ app allowed us to access a bunch of things on our phone using the ships wi-fi (can use this without paying for the Zoom internet package), like our daily schedule (reservations), reserve dining options, book excursions, and edit these things too. Also, we had access to the ships daily compass on our phones at all times. Overall, would I recommend the Harmony if you've never been? Heck yeah. This ship beats out any other ship out there for it's sheer size, neighborhoods, and number of available activities (water slides, 2 rock climbing walls, a zip line, etc.). Would I recommend the Harmony if you've already been on another Oasis-class ship? Definitely, yes. Especially, if you like water slides, want to try the Ultimate Abyss slide, want to try the Wowband or have the convenience of the Royal IQ app on your phone. Will I be booking the Harmony again after having already been on it once? Maybe. If I can get a good deal on the booking, and was not looking at other options, this ship is quite enjoyable. But more likely, I will be looking at booking a room on Symphony of the Seas launching at the end of this year or looking at Carnival's upcoming flagship Vista-class ships as their food, itinerary, and excursion options beat Royal Caribbean's in my opinion.

Flew in from Newark the night before, embarkation went smoothly, our junior deluxe suite was fabulous with a walk in closet, balcony, complimentary Moët Chandon champagne and lovely toiletries. The only issue was the shower door. It covered only half the tub. We were careful yet the floor was quite wet after showering, one had to squish to stand on top of the drain to try and keep the shower water from splashing outside. Seriously, needs addressing. After speaking with guest services and our lovely stateroom attendant ‘Leeshell’ we realized there was nothing else we could do. There were a lot of people onboard; a bit crowded. Finding your way around was challenging at first, learning port, aft, forward etc helped tremendously, finding a crew member always solved direction issues. One learned how important washing hands is. KUDOS to Royal Caribbean! We were fortunate to dine in a different venue each evening which was great and entertaining. The Windjammer though very crowded always had a large selection of food for breakfast/lunch. May I suggest adding Greek yogurt for those who can not tolerate regular yogurt? Also, having a selection of nuts would compliment any meal. The smoking section near the pool should be well marked especially for those trying to avoid it. The entertainment was out of this world; absolutely fantastic. Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough time to do everything; there’s always next time! Really enjoyed and took advantage of the great sales on cruise wear, handbags and watches, thank you! Each and every server and attendant was most helpful in every situation except the shower door issue. Cleanliness was a priority and it was evident everywhere. A suggestion for after disembarkation: please have the restrooms on your pier cleaned and with toilet paper, we had issues leaving Saturday. One really notices the difference after being on the cleanest ship. Nassau Bahamas wasn’t inviting, we walked on our own, St Thomas was cleaner. Again, we tried touring alone. We had inquired several times on the ship and were assured the tram was open to take us to the top for a spectacular view of the ship. Unfortunately, the tram was closed due to hurricane damage several months earlier. Please advise future guests. We contracted a tour guide who gave us an excellent education while driving us around for two hours. Eating locally was fun, shopping was good. On St Kitts the shopping was great! A gentleman with monkeys dared to place one in my arms and proceeded to take pictures using our cellphones, before the third person we inquired how much-$10/person, we stopped him and paid the $20. Pictures came out great but $ should have been mentioned first. Again, we contracted a tour guide for an hour who was at least a $100 cheaper than going through Royal Caribbean. Onboard on our last two sea days there were bargains; cruise wear, handbags and watches to name a few. Fortunately, there was time for me to package and mail my items, suitcase was overweight for flight home. May I suggest you offer to mail within the USA. It would encourage more shopping. The track on Deck 5 was the best allowing one to walk the perimeter of the ship showing great views. The children running around wasn’t the best, I believe you encourage families which is great though it’d be nice to have separate accommodating cruises. TCM chartered the Disney Fantasy in Nov 2016 where there were very few children and approximately 2400 passengers; a comfortable amount of guests. Definitely would go again to other ports checking ratio of adults to children. We had an excellent time and thank you for doing such a great job! Also enjoyed ‘my time dining’. Read Less

Get the ultimate dinning package. It was well worth it! We are so well! If you have a chance to do chefs table, I definitely would. There was plenty to do on board. The entertainment was fantastic. Make sure you go to the fine line and grease. For how many people were on board it didn’t feel crowded. They handle the amount of people very well. The only place you felt the crowd was waiting for the elevators. The only critique I have is the sauna package was a little under wellming. Our balcony stateroom was kept very clean. And the staff is extremely friendly. I would recommend the ultimate dinning package and the ultimate drink package. We ate at a nice restaurant every night and every sea day for lunch. We didn’t have to deal with the crowds. Well worth it. Make sure you reserve your restaurants and entertainment when you arrive on board. Read Less

Gareth Friedman our PADI scuba instructor was incredible! Knowledge and passionate. He was accommodating and contentious. Tania managed to get us booked on a last minute excursion that was already full. She told us to meet her on the peer and got us hooked up with a great time! It was a nice personal touch. Julius our attendant was friendly and warm. He made coming back to the room at night feel like coming home after a long day at work. Loved the peacock towel art and the cool cat with our sunglasses. Very fun attendant! Dennis, Cyntia, Enroy, and Enroy’s main waiters (I can’t recall his name) were all excellent in the main dining room! Feedback from the trip: -All staff presented happy and excited to be apart of our experience. We were impressed by how many staff members smiled and had fun at work. This had a huge impact on our satisfaction. -Main Dining: Food and service in dining room were superior. -Shows: 1) Impeccable entertainment - so diverse and eclectic. 2) Being your best artsy thinking cap: 1887 was a difficult story to follow. Talented skaters and great idea do have an ice show but just hard to follow. 3) Columbus was so funny. 4) Grease was classic and well pulled off. 5) Big Daddy’s was fun and exciting. Not as family friendly as it appears lots of bouncing fruits and vegetables...if you know what I mean. 6) The Fine Line was an absolutely incredible performance! We were in awe the entire show. Would recommend this ship just for this show. -Great gym and sports activities. -If you’re not a smoker stick to the beach pool this way you can avoid the clouds of smoke. -Arrival/Departure: Well executed and highly organized. Communication was stellar throughout the entire trip but especially for departure. The ending of the cruise was just as nice as the beginning. Music, breakfast, and attendees made the departure feel better even though it was sad to go. Read Less

The shows were also fantastic GREASE the musical, Columbus these shows were so well put together, the ice show( I can’t remember the name) was super.

pEmbarkation at Port Everglades was smooth but long. Only one gangplank was available which made boarding longer than usual, but the staff handled the situation well. The ship is amazing. I prefer the way the shops are setup on Oasis better than Harmony but overall the ship is wonderful and would be happy to go on her again. The cabins are so much nicer than Oasis. We loved the layout better, and the bathrooms are very nice. One thing I noticed, is I had a hot shower every time which did not happen on Oasis. Looks like they improved on the hot water. Wonderland is something you have to experience. When you go to dinner there you have to be adventurous and go into it with an open mind. The food over all was wonderful, I will be eating there again. Chops Grill still remains our favorite on the ship. I believe is it could be more cost effective to go to the main dinning room and order a Chops 9oz steak for a charge of $16.95. We did this our last day and the steak was still just as amazing as when we had eaten there on day 2. Izumi is a hidden gem. I had never had sushi before, but I will be going back on our next cruise, it was amazing. Keep in mind there are two Izumi's, sushi and the hibachi experience. I believe I will do both next time. Johnny Rockets was a bit disappointing. Were as the service was outstanding as was all the service on the ship, the burger was not as good as I anticipated. The bun was a little over toasted, and the fries did not taste very fresh. The Dog House was great as always. Sabors was actually very good. Try the Simply Perfect Margarita it lived up to its name. The food was really very good, we will be eating there for sure. We spent most of our time in Vintages, we loved the self pour wines and had a wonderful time sipping wines listening to the music in central park. Wine tasting and flights are a must. Park cafe and Windjammer were as good as always. If you are trying to keep your weight down Park cafe is your best friend. Entertainment.. Grease was very well done, but I think we have all seen the movie way to many times. I enjoyed Cats on Oasis better, simply because the show was not as familiar to me. The Aquatheater show was absolutely amazing, a must see. The ice show was very good, but the story line was a little difficult to follow. If you go to seem some amazing skating, you will not be disappointed. I would have to say the best show on the ship was Columbus, all I can say is do not miss this show, it was tremendous. Service on this ship was outstanding. Great crew!!! I prefer more exclusive shore excursions where you can get some private island time. We opted to get day passes at the resorts on Cozumel and Jamaica. I was not able to find any excursions through Royal Caribbean that provided that exclusive feel to it. Other than that the ports were very nice. I hope you have found this information useful, and you enjoy your cruise. Read Less

Each one of the crew members we met were extremely kind and devoted. We really enjoyed every activities we have done on the boat (Zip line, climbing, water slides, pool, casino, shopping, restaurants, shows...). There was a very great ambience everywhere and we felt good at all times. Even though this is a very huge ship and it carries a lot of people, we could find space for privacy when needed or either be surrounded by people when we felt more in a party mood. Both ship and escale experiences were greatly appreciated. It seems like everything was planned and figured in advance for all amenities or activities. Nothing seemed to be missing. As for the escales, disembarkations as well as the embarkations were equal to the service we constantly received on the ship. (Towells, refreshments...) Thank you all again for the great service and dedication to make our journey on the Harmony of the Seas as memorable and pleasant as possible. Read Less

Super great service and extremely nice people. We did not explore the departure city before the cruise, but the next time we will do so. The embarkation and disembarkation went extremely smooth in comparison to other cruises we have went on. We were immense with the cruise liner and all the many great ventures to explore on the ship like the "Central Park" area. It is an amazing ideal to have a park theme on the ship. Therefore, it was very hard to miss being away from home. There was plenty of fun and interesting entertainment such as live jazz & reggae bands and other activities for everyone to enjoy. At each port, we did Shore excursions which were well planned and engaging for my 14-year-old daughter and my 21 yr. old niece. They really enjoyed the shows on board, especially Grease as well as watching the movies. There were many things for them to enjoy, but importantly, they enjoyed the late night pizza shop staying open until 3:00 am. What a perfect "Spring Break" for my daughter and niece.

I picked Harmony because I wanted the biggest and best ship to take my Teens on. They had the time of their lives on the ship, made lots of friends and wore themselves out daily. The boarding on and off the ship was extremely quick. The staff is the most polite and helpful I have ever seen on a ship. The food, wasn't the best I have ever had but there was plenty of options and the lines were not too terribly long. I can't imagine cooking for 6800 passengers though so I didn't focus much on eating. I enjoyed the track around the lower deck and went to the gym a few times, both are very nice. My spa experience was nice however I didn't like trying to be sold products right afterwards. I'd say the only downfall of the ship is that the solarium didn't have a pool and that shade is limited on the pool decks. We were planning our next trip on Harmony before even leaving the ship!

My husband and I wanted to do a test run before we bring the rest of the family onboard in June. The three waterslides were intimidating at first but I'm ready to do them again with the Grandkids. This will be their 3rd cruise and they all requested waterslides this time; I know they'll love these particular slides. The Ultimate Abyss was also very enjoyable for this 67 year old; not sure if it will be challenging enough for the 10 - 16 year olds. The Zipline will also be new for them and I'm sure they'll love it as much as I do. They are all very experienced with the Rockwall, Flowrider, and Ice Skating; looking forwards to improving their skills. We ate in the American Icon Restaurant on the 3rd floor for Traditional Dining at 5:30 PM; felt as though we were in the basement. Spent our last 2 nights at the Windjammer; better selection and great view. In June we'll do Traditional Dining on the 2 Formal Nights since we are a group of 14 then retreat to the Windjammer for a more relaxing dinner on the other nights. Husband and I will be returning to the exact same room; I hope Jopi will still be our Room Attendent; he was great. I did have an issue with someone stealing my favorite water bottle holder while I was using the jogging track. I reported the theft to Kristina Samardzic, Senior Guest Services Officer. She guided me through the theft recovery procedure and the Security Officer caught the thief and returned my water bottle holder within 24 hours; what a great team! Read Less

We chose this cruise due to excellent timing and pricing all aligning to celebrate our anniversary and my sisters birthday. Harmony of the Seas, Wow, what a fantastic, amazing, fun filled ship. Our Boardwalk stateroom with balcony had excellent views of everything, aqua theater and the ocean...beautiful. Our stateroom attendant, Shella was over the top awesome and our wait staff, Viviana and Gene were the best. The food was 5 star and the ports were fun. The dining venues were excellent, the food was plentiful and the selection seemed endless. In our main dining room, The Grand, I had Cobia, Swordfish, Baised beef, Lobster and Buttered Cod all tender and delicious. Chops was outstanding, their 9 oz. filet was succulent, the sides were excellent a wonderful dining experience. The Fitness and Spa center was what you'd expect on the largest cruise ship in the world, top notch and plenty of machines. RCI is on top of their game with the best people, ships and ports. After this cruise, I wouldn't go anywhere else!! Best vacation ever!! Read Less

The Harmony of the Seas is a beautiful Ship with numerous activities. The seas days flew by due to the amount and variety of activities. Food was great and staff was friendly. No complaints here. We have travelled the Caribbean extensively and at this stage the Ship is far more important than the ports of call. This ship met our expectations. Cabin was roomy and comfortable. We had an ocean view balcony with plenty of room for the two of us. You would think embarkation would be a nightmare with 6,000 passengers but like any of the Royal Caribbean cruises it was fast and efficient. Norwiegan you could learn something from these people....Easy access on and off the ship during ports of call and we at no time were met with long lines. If you go on this cruise and hit Cozumel take 45 minutes of your day before arriving and take in the shopping presentation by James Dill. Well worth it and he pays for your cab downtown. Read Less

Daily Planners included dozens of activities to participate in (the cruise), and for all ages. The exit and entrance of the ship at the arriving ports was simple.The three places visited were great. My favorite one was San Juan, Puerto Rico, in which I recommend exploring the old city landmarks by yourself. It is truly a beautiful an colorful old city. In St. Thomas we went to a very nice beach called Magens Bay, which I recommend. In Labadee we took a cool jet ski experience and enjoyed the near beaches.

We paid 129$ per person but we did not get beach chair and umbrella. Its all occupied by resort guest before we reach the resort. Also they ran out of food in beach. I was excited to taste Jerk chicken in Jamaica but its also gone. Read Less

My husband and I chose this pre-Christmas cruise to celebrate a 50th anniversary with family and friends. In fact we booked the suite about 18 months ago. Friends and family had four other balcony staterooms, all on deck 9. We chose the Harmony for the excitement of a new ship. Royal Caribbean treated us like kings and queens, including organizing a private Mexican food anniversary party on the deck. I will never forget dancing with my husband, son, and two grandsons to the Kenny Rogers song "Through the Years." The Harmony of the Seas is a spotless ship with very happy staff members who seemed very proud of the ship. The suite sun deck was perfect and so was the bar tender Antonio. The suite sundeck area was never crowded. Coastal Kitchen was first class with the best views on the ship. Did not spend much time there though as we ate at Specialty restaurants or called room service. By far the best entertainment ever as the ice and water shows are unbelievable. The family had a fantastic time in the Rubicon.We had rain on the Western but sunshine on the Eastern legs of the trip. Ship only felt crowded on rainy days. STAR class was amazing as was our Genie Daniel Goyeneche who has incredible communication skills. We heard from him ten days before the cruise and he was always calling to make sure our everyday wishes were granted. He fulfilled all requests immediately (with a smile) even helping out our balcony guests in gaining access to shows and excursions. the complimentary Starbucks coffee was a real plus. Embarkation and debarkation was a breeze. We chose the ship as our destination so did not get off ont he islands as we have sailed the Caribbean many times before. We did take a tour of Miami as our airline flight was late on the last day. Turned out to be very enjoyable and informative. Will plan another family celebration for sure but will have to save up for STAR class. Read Less

After reading lots of reviews we decided to buy, it was worth it. Harmony is a massive, impressive ship with everything you would like to have on a cruise. Everything for everybody, we were a group of 6 (3 adults and 3 children) on two staterooms, but everyone had fun. Children has lots of activities, specially designed Adventure Ocean is by far the best kids activity center on a ship, besides the ship has lots of pools for small, medium and big kids, great slides and even a surf area. For us the adults I enjoyed the giant 700 meters track on deck 5 for running or walking, there is also a decent gym with a big spa. The shows are very good, specially Grease and Columbus on the Royal Theatre which by the way is awesome. The aqua theater hosts another great show called The Fine Line which is amazing. There are also two more shows on ice, ISkate and 1887, another great thing is that during the day the allow everybody to skate freely. The ships has lots of shops, restaurants (20) and bars. I recommend this ship 100% Read Less

I did cruises before but I want to state that this was the best experience that I ever had on a cruise ship before. Not only was this the biggest, but the staff was the nicest people I have ever met. They had great food and excellent service for whatever I needed. The dining hall was beautiful. I think I took at least one hundred pictures. This year we upgraded from the stateroom to a balcony and it was beautiful. The staterooms are nice but the balcony is another level. And it was extremely clean. There was so much to do I was never bored. The shows were awesome, they had great excursions that I went on, and they had great activities for our group. I would recommend this ship and cruise line to everyone who wants to go on a cruise. I will definitely go again, and again and again. Read Less

Harmony is a fun ship and suitable to any ages. It is good for a family vacation. It provides lots of activities and organized well. The ship is well design and easy to access wherever you would like to go. Central Park is a very unit place and good to relax. It is just like sitting at home. There are many activities for young children and out door activities for teen ages. Entertainments are very good and many alternatives, such as stage performance, musical performance, performance on ice and water. Theater is very well design and good sound effect. Also, the ship has many good exercise equipment. Temperature in exercise room is very good. Also, it provides a running track on the sixth floor. It is half open and close runway, so you can have fresh air that not many ships can provide. Food on the ship has many alternatives and many choices, such as health food, classic alternatives and special styles. The experience on the ship will bring you lots of good memory. Read Less
