Just completed my ninth cruise overall and my first as a solo cruiser. Was very disappointed at the solo gathering. No one showed up the first gathering. At the the first solo and and single lunch two other people showed up (Roy and Sara). Sara was delightful. Never say Roy again. This Asthmatic hated the smoking in the Casino. This is a problem across all Cruise Lines (except Disney (no Casino)). Royal Caribbean is a more laid back atmosphere that Holland America. I believe they are trying to compete with Carnival. The food (in the main dining room) and entertainment is on par with Carnival. If you can afford it, I recommend that you buy the Key package (to get reserved seating section at the shows and the Speciality Dining package. Recommended Shows: The Fine Line (Aqua Show) Headliners: Revoiced Columbus the Musical Was turned off by the hard sell tactics after my massage. Not going to book spa treatments anymore on any future cruises, The beverage packages were a nice feature on Royal Caribbean, I would have liked to have had that on other cruise lines. Bottom Line: If you want a ver casual cruising environment, Royal Caribbean is recommended. If you're looking for something a little more elegant, try a different Cruise Line. Read Less

Since my last RC cruise 3 yrs ago.... Sit down dinners in My Time dining - food quality is of a lesser quality, food choices in Windjammer the same for 7 days. When cruising, no space available anywhere! I would definitely reconsider booking on such a big diverse boat. On the plus side, there were more shows/entertainment/music venues which is why the rating of 9 vs a 7. The only option for solo cruisers to meet were not honored/recognized by staff so we didn't even get admitted due to families taking up the tables in the Rising Tide bar. The Staff was still pretty amazing everywhere, and you didn't have to wait for a drink anywhere for more than a few minutes. We had a cabin overlooking Central Park which was very nice. Housekeeping was phenomenal as usual. In all fairness, this is probably a great family cruise but not so much for singles & friends. It was nice to see once though. Read Less

Normally we cruise on the smaller ships. Now 70+ cruises under our belt. Because of all the TV advertising of the Harmony we decided to give it a try. Our cabin was on deck 3 cabin 3654 next to the elevator right below where you board. It was a perfect location. When you exit the ship in port, you return and go up an escalator , yes escalator. Where does it take you. About 50 feet from our state room. How nice. If you think it is like a mall, it is. The boardwalk was tranquil and so very nice. The shows were all excellent. The comedian stunk. Old jokes. The juggler was so, so. All the trivia was excellent. All the small gatherings were excellent. They had a copy of the Family Feud called the Friendly Feud. it was also excellent. I have no idea why some say it was super crowded. it was not even close to that. We had on board 6100 guests not including the thousand of employees. All are mostly scattered throughout the ship. The only time there was any crowd was when the had a show in the middle of the ship. Everyone wanted to watch. Big deal. Even with that, it was not bad at all. Never any pushing or shoving. Everyone could not have been any nicer or helpful. Just excellent. Now for the food. After 70+ cruises we almost never go to the dining room. The buffet is for us. We were told as for the guests thy had over 60 different nationalities on board. The buffet reflect it. They had just about anything you could think of. Always the perfect temperature. The food was nothing but excellent. Example, On Carnival if you want a chocolate covered strawberry you buy it. If you want carrot cake, you buy it. On here they were walking around giving them to anyone. The strawberries were gigantic and available most all the time. With or without chocolate. How about fresh make crepes. When was the last time you had those. Yes they had several fruits for them. All fresh. I love mashed potatoes. Not only did they have them everyday for lunch and dinner. They were perfectly made. How about this. We were told if you check out the dining room menu and you see something on it they did not have at the buffet. They will get it for you. WoW! Found that out when I saw a person with a New York strip and wanted to know were they were. I only have one negative thing and that is our preference, really nothing against the ship. We like sitting in the cassino and looking out while enjoying a drink. Not on the Harmony. You can see out only in the dining rooms or the buffet or just go out on an upper deck. That is it. Otherwise. I totally recommend you go on the oasis class ships. The new Symphony will probable be even better. Normally onj the 6th evening we start to slow up and are ready to debark. Not this time. The week flew by so fast. So much to see and do. I could go on and on. Do it, you will love it. Loke going to Vegas and seeing the shows, like going to a beautiful mall, like going to exquisite restaurants and other locations. Super nice and big casino. Did I mention, awesome for the younger people. Kids and teenagers. So fantastic for them. Happy sailing :-) Read Less

I would highly recommend this cruise to others. The entertainment was very good. It was always easy to find something fun to do even when the weather wasn't good. The first few days were stormy so the ship rocked back and forth more than I thought it would being such a big ship. We had a really good time at all the ports participating in royal caribbean excursions. The main dinning room food needs improvement but there are other food options on board for additional charges that were delicious. The bartenders and wait staff were on top of everything. They were also very friendly and started good conversation. The fitness area was too small for the number of people on board. It was always too busy to do anything. Cozumel was a blast. The beach was beautiful. I would highly recommend the playa mia shore excursion in Cozumel. For only 50 dollars you get to swim, snorkel, kayak, and play on a beach water park in beautiful waters.

Harmony of the Seas currently been the largest cruise ship at sea. Its size offers the best overall experiences at sea. The food at Central park is amazing; you can get to try them with a dining package which is a decent deal. Main dining room however can be crowded and the personalized service is not really possible. Cabin is very good; the attendant is very friendly, helpful and willing to go the extra mile to make sure you get everything you wanted. Shops has many choice for gifts and duty free as such. The flowrider and zipline is awesome along with the abyss slide. Central park is on of the best area if you are going on a romantic cruise. Boardwalk is perfect for family with young children. The bar and adult area is perfect for anyone who simply wants some quiet time. The internet onboard is the fast I've used on any cruise ship; however please note the different option of surf vs surf+stream the price is a little different too. Be sure to do your reservation on any activity as early as possible! Overall the ship is one of the best at sea worth cruising with! Happy sailing! Read Less

Went with VTG singles group. Was on deck 6, which had the spa/gym fwd, boardwalk aft. It was great. Carousel, restaurants, rock climbing and the aqua shows at the boardwalk. Elevators got crowded at times and so did the buffet. Did find a nice buffet for breakfast in the adult area with 6 hot tubs I would get my fruit from after an omelet & coffee at Johnny Rocket's in the Boardwalk. Central Park on deck 8 also had a complimentary restaurant for quick snacks. Top decks had zipline, 2 wave riders, miniature golf, table tennis, pools, 10 story Abyss tub slide and probably more I forgot! They let you reserve most of the shows online to beat the crowds (close to 6,000 people). There's 2 times a day they let people ice skate in studio B for half an hour, I understand you'll need to sign up for your time. I'm not a picky eater, but the dinning room had a great buffet for lunch/dinner with great chocolate things. Friday night's prime rib was cut with a fork! Read Less

I wanted to experience one of the newest ship and I was not disappointed, since the minute you walk in it is impressive the spacious and modern venues. It is decorated with a very tasteful designs, loved the art on the walls. The rooms were spacious with the latest technology. The service was good, the food was excellent, good selections on the drinks. The shows were excellent also. What impressed me the must was the cruise director, what an excellent job! I have been in many cruises and only on w of them I have seen a cruise director that good, there was never a dull moment, from different themes every-night to the disco late at night he was always there overlooking all the staff members, for me it made the difference What a great time we all had! The service was excellent and we were able to see all the officials at some point or other. Lots of activities to keep you busy the whole day. Read Less

Embarkation & disembarkation was fast & well organized. Come prepared with all documentation needed and all will go smoothly. The ship is beautiful and was festively decorated for Christmas. It is so large that we never felt crowded. They emphasize on cleanliness so there are hand sanitizers everywhere. Which I think is a great idea considering all the germs out there. We stayed in cabin 11677 and the room was very comfortable with enough closet space. Our room was always clean. The stewards were friendly and attentive. We never had any problems with noise. We dined in Silk and when available we also had breakfast there. The food and service were impeccable. The Windjammer offers quality food with plenty of variety. The pizza was also very good. The entertainment was off the charts. I loved every single show we went to see. There was a different show every day. 1880, Big Daddy’s Hideaway, The Fine Line, The Attic, to name a few, were all worth seeing. Central Park was beautiful as well as the Carousel. We loved the Ultimare Abyss and the water slides. My husband loved the wave pool. We were never able to use the Wall or the Zip Line. Every time we went they were closed. The Dragon Flight in Labadee was awesome. Snorkeling in Cozumel was a definite repeat and a bus tour in Jamaica. The week was fabulous although the weather tried to dampen the fun. Read Less

Harmony of the Seas, currently the largest ship at sea, is the perfect cruise for people who are easily bored. It has a huge variety of activities and very good entertainment. It truly is a resort unto itself. Getting off at the ports is a completely optional experience. PRO: This is a ship for those with multiple age groups and activity levels in their party. The halls are wide enough for scooters and those with mobility challenges; while two flowriders, a zip line, mini-golf, ice skating, 17 story slides, and more, keep those who are active busy. The ship is ENORMOUS or GINORMOUS as my 14 year old would say. She was impressed with the size of the kids club and said the other kids were very nice. The gym is larger than many back at home and the service staff was always cordial. This is a great ship for a conference, the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome; yet the ship was large enough that the other passengers didn't even know that we were onboard. The cabins are average size but the closets are very well thought out. The entertainment, especially Grease and the Fine Line were some of the best I've ever seen at sea. There is always a buzz around the ship of various bands, etc. We liked the escape room too. CONS: The regular dinning venues are mediocre at best. This is a ship where I would HIGHLY recommend the speciality dinning. The Wonderland and Park 150 were good. We often ate at the free Park Cafe for breakfast and the Solarium for dinner. The main dinning room was pretty much inedible. It is a ship for drinking. Although this isn't a con, it is something to know if you are a non-drinker. Also, the Casino reeks of smoke, so much that we never went through nor played. The bathrooms, while well configured are small with only one plug in the ceiling. Also, they do NOT give you: shampoo, conditioner, or lotion; just a 2 in one canister adhered to the shower. The various venues in the ship always have music, this can be great but isn't always the most relaxing. There really isn't a place for "quite and calm" if you are trying to get away from it all. Also, because the ship is so big, one doesn't really feel the movement. This can be good for some people; however, I like to feel the ship move. Would I go again? Yes with a group. I think this is a perfect ship for either conventions or multi-age groups. There is certainly something WOW for everyone. Read Less

Great value for money! The variety of shows and activities on board is high, and they are all of really good quality. From ice skating shows to Grease to fantastic comedy and a great surprise headliner show, to watching a movie on deck, to all the clubbing, live music, dining, drinking, wine tasting, sports, swimming and many more activities, it was just great! The port and beaches of Labadee Haiti is a big farce, as it is owned entirely by Royal Caribbean itself, so we felt betrayed as we had booked the Historic Walking tour in an area where there was absolutely no history to talk about. Falmouth Jamaica and Cozumel Mexico were great experiences and the tours there were amazing! Really cool to see so much of the local culture. We had a wonderful experience sailing on an all inclusive ship and sightseeing two countries on the way. The Harmony is a very cool ship that everyone should see, and the people working on board are all very friendly and helpful. Read Less

Harmony of the Seas is the best cruise i've taken. Andrea my stateroom coordinator is extraordinary. I am a picky eater and I had no problem with the food. My 10 year old son would begin his activities at 7:30 am and by 6:00 pm he's exhausted. All the staff was very helpful and friendly. They have a lot of stores and every day they have a different special. I love that you can prepay almost everything (Drink Package, Internet, Arcade, Photos, Shore Excursions, Specialty Dining & Spa Services). They also have an Escape Room, Carousel water slides, ultimate abyss, basketball, ping pong, volleyball, water surfing, gliding and Ice Skating Rink for entertainment for the whole family. The comedy shows were hilarious. I loved the moving bar lol. I felt like royalty while cruising with Royal Caribbean My one issue is the fact that my son and I did not get our $300 on board credit per passenger as stated. Read Less

excellent ship and ports & shore excursions. The organization was excellent. The service was top. Enough activities to do and very various. The excursions organized by Royal Caribbean were excellent. The qualitiy of the food was very good and various. A lot of choice of cocktails and other drink. Also a lot of choice with the different buffets. I did already many cruises, mostly with MSC, but this was my best cruise (better quality, the ship, etc). In the future, from now on, I will try to cruise only with Royal Caribbean, These ships are very big, but not disturbing. As the ship is very big, there is a lot of possibilities of activities and place enough. For every activity on the ship, you have never to wait too long (or not to wait at all). I surely recommand Royal Caribbean to each one who like cruises. You will not be disappointed. Read Less

My partner and I took the first cruise out of Fort Lauderdale on this Ship for 3 days, which was amazing, and of course it would be since it was the first time it traveled in Florida. But what blew me away was we decided to do it again but this time for 7 days traveling from Fort Lauderdale to Haiti, Jamaica, and Mexico! The experience was just as amazing as the first cruise if not better. To me that shows the level of consistency and pride this company takes in there cruise line and ships! Getting on the ship was super quick, easy and convenient! We were greeted with amazing friendly staff and even on embarkation and disembarkation the music was playing as we arrived and left making it feel like we were on vacation even when leaving the ship. The ship is 10 stars beautiful. We had an ocean view balcony the first trip and this time a central park balcony! We received a free bottle of wine and a dinner in central park when we arrived, which was super cool not knowing we were getting that for free at all. Plus the room has more storage than we even needed and I even over packed haha! Its super modern compared to all other cruise line I have been on. We honestly ate at the Windjammer and had room service the entire trip its so good and convent we did not even need the dinner in the main hall this trip! But last trip it was for sure a great experience! The entertainment was above and beyond, I made it our ultimate goal to do everything on this ship this trip around (which in the end we did not even get to since there was so much to do). The play "Grease" was amazing but what really got me was the ice skating show (1887) and most importantly "Columbus" (A MUST SEE). Columbus has this old day MODERN THEME going on and it was truly original and even the staff looked like they enjoyed every second of performing on stage! We got to see puppeteers, comedians, and so much more like the late night evening game show event what the entire room of hundreds of people joined in to play the game. I have never seen an entire room with this many people get so involved in a game before i was truly impressed. The Excursions were something we normally do not do and we have take 10 plus cruises. But we were having a blast so decided lets do one every port! We were so impressed and will now do an excursion every Royal Caribbean Cruise we go on! Port 1 - Labadee, Haiti - Excursion - Dragons Flight Zip line - This Excursions started it off for us.The staff on the ISLAND which is owned by Royal Caribbean were amazing! We had this Australian Lady who was so upbeat and cool who took us from the training and practice all the way to the top and saying go. Service was outstanding! The zip line views are breathtaking and it is apparently the worlds largest zip line over water! (MUST DO THIS). Port 2 - Jamaica - Excursion - Horse back riding on trail and ocean - We have always wanted to ride horses, so that day we did and we had an amazing time. We were going thru the trails and learning how to ride horses and the sayings, we met the staff on shift who were helpful and cool. We then were taken knee deep into the turquoise color ocean waters and ran with the horses. Such an experience! Port 3 - Mexico, Cozumel - Excursion - ATV and Cave Diving - All I should say is FUN, FUN, & FUN! We were with a group of 20+ people and we all got our own ATV. We drove trough trails and to these beautiful caves and went cave diving! Well I did as well as a few others.This to us was such a bucket list kind of thing and it was great! So OVERALL this ship and and this Company are truly amazing and I already pre-booked the same exact cruise in December! Read Less

My husband and I chose this cruise because we wanted to experience a large ship cruise. Our only disappointments were the lack of anything decent to watch on TV before going to bed, no ice routinely in our cabin. Our balcony cabin was sleek and modern. The ship itself is really nice with so many modern features. The Wi-Fi was the best we ever had on a ship, even though it was slow at times. The shows were amazing! The ship didn't really feel crowded, I was surprised. While I think there were not as many things on the dinner menu, it was adequate. Other dining spots were very nice. Best buffet at sea so far. I was not really impressed with Sabor but it was good too. The Solarium Bistro was very nice, especially the appetizers. The lunch in American Icon was outstanding with choices of your choice in on a salad bar, buffet, or order from the menu or a combination of all the choices. That buffet was beyond outstanding - 5 stars! We enjoyed the excursions we went on in Jamaica and Haiti, we did not go on an excursion in Cozumel. Read Less
