We went on our first cruises this year. It was for a 60th birthday for a close family friend with a group of 20 people. It was a blast. Other than challenges with the luggage, the over all experience was absolutely superb. We weren't prepared for the cruise as we had over packed clothes and shoes. We were up set that we weren't allowed irons on board, but to be fair the laundry was provided as a complimentary service - at lease we know for next time. We enjoyed the islands - although Labadee was a bit too hot for us. The last thing I'd like to say is that every thing on board is quite expensive so be prepared to pay $3.50 for a regular bottle of water (and an 18% service charge will be added to your bill for every service). So ensure you register your credit card - as it makes life much easier. All it all we enjoyed our experience, It has made us catch the cruise bug and we will definitely go again. Read Less

I have never cruised before and I was a little worried about being on a ship with over 5000 people. I was completely won over - there was so much to do and we never had to wait in line (except for one excursion where we had to wait for the bus, but never when we were on the ship). There is something for everyone. I did not go with my kids but the entire time I kept thinking, "my kids would love this!" and I even think my husband would go and that is saying a lot because he typically does not like crowds. The shows were fantastic. I knew I would like Grease, but that wasn't even my favorite show! Thin Line was so good I went twice. And Columbus was very funny and I would've seen it again if there was enough time. Getting on and off the ship was so easy, in fact I drove and parked in the lot by the boat and it was only about 20 yards from the ship. I would go on this ship over and over again. Read Less

The ship was amazing. The staff members were terrific. The crown loft suite was fabulous. Grease and Columbus were wonderful. The food was good everywhere (we ate mostly in the Coastal Kitchen, but also tried the Hibachi, Sabors, Johnny Rockets, and all were great). Water slides were really fun. Highly recommend iSkate show as well. 1887 was good but we had trouble following the plot. Also recommend the comedian. He was very funny. We did our own shore excursions so I can't rate those. We got the beer/wine package which was worth it. I am not sure I would recommend the photo package because there weren't that many photographers around and you can take photos with your phone anyway. Our teenagers loved it and made friends on the ship (two 18-year olds and a 14 year old). Only criticism was the Solarium restaurant. It was hot and the food was not as good as elsewhere in my opinion. We would highly recommend Harmony of the Seas to all! Read Less

This was our first time Cruising and was really looking forward to it but was a bit disappointed to read the first reviews of this ship when it launched back in May BUT we need not have worried because to say this ship is AMAZING is an understatement! It is truly exceptional beyond description because you just have to go on it to understand. I personally think the negative reviews must have been given because of the weather as we were on this ship only a mere 3 weeks later and it is 100% finished and operational. The staff on RC are exceptional and must get a big THANK YOU from us because you all made our trip memorable. All staff from stateroom attendant to dining room staff and everyone in between. Ship is spotless (know its new but can only imagine older ships have same standard of cleanliness and hygiene) well designed and to us newcomers would only know you are sailing along by looking out! The food is fabulous and the choice is vast. Spa was so relaxing and again the staff exceptional. The entertainment on board is as good as anywhere. The production of Grease was outstanding. I could go on and on about our week long (way too short) holiday but it would read the same so if you want a holiday of a lifetime go on Harmony of the Seas or any other Royal Caribbean cruise ship and you wont be disappointed. The only negative all week long is that you could easily come off the ship at least 1 stone heavier with all the delicious food....... Take a bow you are a fab company Read Less
