One of the best cruise ships we have ever been on. From the staff, rooms, food, and overall activities to choose from, we could not have asked for more. The food at many of the available restaurants was excellent. We especially enjoyed the casual experience at Windjammer. The food was excellent every day! We were not highly impressed with the Chop House, especially for the price, but everything else was great. You could not have asked for a friendlier room attendant! There are so many activities to participate in that you will never be bored. The casino is very tight. Don’t spend too much time in there, or you will leave broke. Other than those two negative ratings, the rest was awesome. Make sure to take the VIP dolphin swim in Nassau. Our family loved it! Although there is still damage from last year’s hurricanes, St. Thomas and St. Kitts were still beautiful! We will definitely be back for another Harmony of the Seas cruise! Read Less

SERVICE - 8.5/10 Overall, the service was exceptional. Some higher demand areas needs improvement but overall, really really impressive. Many workers are from countries with very demanding work ethics and that shows in how they present themselves. Great job! FOOD - 8.5/10 We had the ultimate dining package. To us, it was worth it. Because the free food is generally a hit but some misses. The specialty restaurants were a great experience generally but not made all equal. Jamie's Italian and Izumi were the best. If you think Italian is just Italian, you'll be shocked. ACTIVITIES - 9/10 So much to do on this ship! You can definitely spend all 7 days on the ship and barely get familiar with it all. It was a lot to take in but they organized it pretty well with the daily newsletters. ALCOHOL - 9/10 Loved the Deluxe package. Do not skimp on the drinks and a lot of variety. CABIN - 9/10 Excellent attendant, clean, and sizeable. My ONLY gripe on this whole ship is that they have short toilets, but not a biggie- just a first world preference. PORTS - 8/10 Ports were generally clean and well laid out. Definitely can tell it has RC all over it, but it was enjoyable. Overall, this was an amazing experience. Highly recommended ship. So much to do that can cater to everyone, it is a ship definitely worth cruising. Such great service from majority and impressive shows/events. The restaurants are hit or miss but majority are good.

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

This is my second time on the ship and it was perfect for me. The first time I was part of a group of twenty this year I went alone and I had a blast. I did not get off the ship, no desire to do so. I always had dinner in the dining room. For lunch I tried different venues including Sabor which was awesome. For dinner I was seated with different groups however a few nights I wanted to sit alone and the staff accommodated me. I avoided the Windjammer at all cost, I believe I got food there twice but I never ate in there. I was so familiar with the ship that I was able to avoid the crowds. I treated myself to SPA services which was worth its weight in gold. Did room service one night, the service was great, I overdid it and the food was not that great. I jogged on the track on 5 which was less crowded than the fitness center. The only show I was interested in watching was the Aqua show. I watched it in daytime which wasn't as great as at night. Night life was perfect, I hung out in the casino everynight and would leave with different groups of people and show up to Dazzles and the Attic. I had a wonderful time and met many wonderful people. Too bad I met no one from this group since I got no invitation to attend. Read Less

I have sailed on many cruise lines, and Royal Caribbean is one of my favorites. However, I would only go on the Harmony of the Seas one time. It is great to experience such a large boat, but it did not have some of the things I liked on smaller ships. For example, reservations were needed for EVERYTHING. Grease, The Fine Line, and the ice skating shows were done unbelievably well. Columbus and the other aqua show were supposed to be comedies, but they seem to be for younger children. The humor is random and childish. However, we didn't have a show we could go to every night because of reservations. This is the largest thing I disliked about the cruise. On other ships, my family and I have been able to attend a show every night without reservations, whether they be dancing shows or plays. I enjoyed having that. I understand why they don't do it, and that is because of the sheer amount of people, but I still missed that. Also, My Time Dining was unsatisfactory. We still had to wait to eat because reservations were made for the whole week by other guests. The excursions were amazing, and there always seemed to be seats at the pool (party of 2). Our cabin was always maintained, and the crew was friendly. It was crazy that every time we came back to the room, even in the middle of the day, our cabin was clean. The staff is very friendly, and they seem to always know the answers. We would ask people questions unrelated to their specific job, but they still knew where to point us, and that was very nice. There were many amenities on this cruise for kids, and for adults as well. The water slides were popular with the kids, as well as the ice cream machine. The cruise director was phenomenal and hosted many events across the ship. He was hilarious and personable, and he was able to make the crowd laugh when the moment could have been awkward. On a different note, the excursions were great! We went on the Rainbow Reef Snorkel in Nassau and the Mt. Liamuiga Volcano Hike in St. Kitts. We initially were unsure about the Rainbow Reef Snorkel because of the lack of pictures or proper reviews on it, however, we found that it was quite satisfactory. There were many rock and coral formations to look at and dive down to. There were tons of fish because they chum the water, but it was still nice to have things to look at. If you got away from the people a little bit, you saw more fish doing natural things. It was very nice. The hike in St. Kitts was the best excursion that I have ever done. I love doing strenuous things outdoors, as I often participate in mud runs (Spartan Races, Tough Mudders, etc.), so this was right up my alley. It was a very strenuous hike, and their aren't many breaks. You are in groups of about 12, and, at one point, we had to scramble over the rocks to get to the summit. It was 2000ft in about 2 1/2 hours, so if you are not fit, I do not suggest this excursion. It is definitely not one for pictures and sight seeing until you get to the top. Honestly, my descent was more of an uncoordinated slide down the mountain. I thought it was so fun, and the group I was in also loved it. Most also said they had wished they had brought an old pair of sneakers though. Overall, I really enjoyed this cruise, and it met and exceeded almost all of my expectations. The embarkation and disembarkation all went smoothly, but my family and I live in Florida, so we just drove ourselves and took care of our own luggage. It was a great experience, and I highly recommend it. Read Less

Wanted to get on board on the biggest cruise ever, Harmony had its first trip from the USA to the Caribbean. The immigration and check in process was fast and with no problem. Planned the trip since January 2016. Party of 15 with all family members. Rooms were clean and had an acceptable space, our bags were near the room, we had to take them inside our cabins. Overall experience is 100%, food was great in every restaurant we ate, but the best food is definitely at dinner were you are attended by a personal waiter and a helper. Every day he already knew our drinks and what kind of food or taste we wanted to try, bought a bottle of wine every day at an affordable prices, $ 50 to $ 65 each. Kids menus are very good. It is and overall experience for the whole family, many activities to do alone or with your loved ones. Teens loved the wave, pool, sports deck. The smaller ones, loved the carrousel, pool and the arcade. The excursions on each Island were investigated on line to get affordable prices and to know everyones experiences. Everytime you get on board again, you have to pass thru X-rays and inspections. People on the Islands are very friendly. Shows and entertainment was very good and it makes you lose control that you are on the ocean. Ice cream, hot dogs and pizza is an everyday meal for between meals, all included in the price. Very highly recommended for a lifetime experience. Read Less
