This was me and my wife's 5th year wedding anniversary. It was great. We enjoyed everything. This was our second cruise and our first with Royal Caribbean. If there was anything that could have been better it was the food in the windjammer. It wasn't bad but it wasn't amazing at all either. It was just mediocre compared to other places on the ship that you have to pay for. We went to Izumi, ...

First, the class of Ships we were not unknown, but there is much to discover new. Everyone who said that I already know, better was taught. Here the Oasis-class was Advanced models, I would describe it as Oasis-Plus. Certainly the Department still needs more work per se, but it all worked. The Team grows. It was a wonderful trip with great weather, great for a Maiden Voyage. The Cabin, the ...

This was the innagural cruise for the Harmony of the Seas from Southampton England to Barcelona Spain. We have been on the Oasis of the Seas so there was a familiarity with the ship. The Harmony was nothing less than amazing all around. We had no issues whatsoever. Service was top notch all around. Our cabin steward was awesome as was our MDR waiter and beverage waitress. We really loved the ...

I had wanted to try an Oasis class ship for some time and this was a perfect opportunity as it was departing from my local port.I would normally avoid brand new ships,until the teething problems are sorted out,but this was a one off as it is unlikely that Harmony will return to Southampton. The boarding process was the fastest and easiest I have ever experienced,as soon as we got out of the ...

Harmony of the Seas Maiden Voyage 29 May – 5 June We booked this holiday back last year, mainly to experience the ship as the ports of call were of less interest, other than Barcelona where we stayed for 4 days after the cruise. I was going with my cousin whom had never cruised before and also suffered from motion sickness. After reading the bad press the ship received following the pre ...

I originally booked the maiden cruise from Southampton to Barcelona long before they added the two 3 and 4 night preview cruises which I will review separately. The contrast to the 3 and 4nt cruises was amazing, with most of the contractors disembarked and 99% of things operational those just joining were all asking the same question, what could have been wrong? Ironically of the two weeks ...

Chose this 4 night cruise to experience the Harmony and be able to have a good look around her. Checking in at Southampton was just the best experience ever, from the Rail Station to Port, 5 mins in a cab, checked in Southampton by the ladies with IPads and onboard within 15 mins. We were early so cabin was not available, not a problem, we had a wander before going to The Windjammer for a ...

My wife and I have just returned from the maiden voyage of Royal Caribbean's Harmony of the Seas from Southampton to Barcellona sailing 29th May 2016. As you can imagine, the ship is huge, but don't let that put you off. There is so much to do, even on a sea day, you run out of time before its time for diner. With all the neighbourhoods that are availible there is always something to do. A coffee ...

Trying out Harmony, the largest liner.

We chose this 'taster' three day cruise to see what the new Harmony of the Seas was like. It was advertised as the largest cruise liner. We had been on Oasis of the Seas and did not expect there would be many differences (Except for a few inches in length) but we found the twisting tube runs fun, as something new. The ship was really not ready to sail. There were workmen (mostly French) all ...

I had the wonderful experience of sailing on the Maiden voyage of Harmony of the Seas sailing from Southampton. I have met some lovely friends who were lucky enough to sail on the four and three night cruises. My friends on the three night cruise had experienced some minor issues but nothing that took away from their experience on Harmony. The experience at Southampton was fun and amazing and I ...
