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 think that I may have been one of the first fifty people on the ship. I walked on and WOW what a beautiful ship it is the same of her sisters Oasis and Allure but it felt to me amazing. I know that the ships are so similar but each are slightly different. I headed to Central Park and enjoyed a glass of wine at the Trellis Bar. Yes I know it's early, but it was the day of the Maiden Voyage. I explored the ship before returning to Central Park again I thought that Harmony was beautifull. Yes there was some snagging to do but the ship was only just over a week or so old. Every day for me just got better and better I met up with some new friends from the Maiden voyage on Ovation. We all enjoyed the Ovation but Harmony just had that bigger WOW factor some how. I had a single cabin with ocean view on deck 4 it was great and I had a very kind cabin steward called John who looked after all the single cabins so well. All the fellow single cruisers I met said the same thing.

This time I never experienced any specialality resturants apart from the wonderful tapas in Vintages. I had dining in the American Icon restaurant and was lucky to have Denisse and Georgi to take care of us. The food was for me amazing with quite a few new dishes again WOW I felt so guilty one night with a choice of two main dishes to choose from. Thanks to Denisse I had both and felt very very full, the food was amazing I have to say.

I enjoyed the Diamond Club and when it was busy the Attic was opened up, thank you to everyone for looking after us all.
