We chose this cruise company as it was recommended by our local Travel Agent as being disabled friendly, we have 2 disabled children, one physically, one Autistic, so this seemed ideal solution. Never been on a cruise ship before so we thought it may be a little noisy and crowded but there were plenty of quiet spots for us and the children, loads to see and do on board as well as the trips ashore. We chose short trips ashore which were great tasters for parts of Italy, and this was ideal for us.We visited Pisa and Pompeii on 2 separate days, these were excellent and well organised although our daughter couldn't get round most of Pompeii as too steep and uneven ground but found a lovely outside cafe in the market square. All the staff on Harmony are so friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble, from our Room Manager, Diana, to the waiting staff in the restaurants and the chefs in the Windjammer (especially Steve !) they do Royal Caribbean and the guests PROUD !! We were made to feel like VIP's during our week long stay. The facilities are fantastic, great for wheelchair users, although our cabin door was not wide enough to get the wheelchair through unless it was folded but it was not a huge problem. We got cabins with adjoining balconies and connecting door in case of any problems. Atmosphere is brilliant throughout the ship, we all felt safe enough to go and explore alone or together, plenty of shows/music at night. Service was top class throughout, only hiccup was our room service breakfast order for early morning trip was not picked up but when we phoned they rushed it through for us, BRILLIANT! Will definately go again!

Our cabin definately had the WOW factor! Absolutely fabulous and spotlessly clean, beautiful decor, extremely comfy beds and fantastic shower in en-suite bathrooms. Seats on balcony very comfortable and fantastic views day or night!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Leaning Tower of Pisa
    Took only 1 hour by coach, short walk to Pisa and then we had 1 hour to explore on our own. Can get into cathedral for free but was over hour wait so tour rep gave us tip to pay to get tickets to Baptistry 5 Euro's each and could then get into Cathedral straight away. Absolutely beautiful! Good for wheelchairs once you get there.

  • Pompeii Walking Tour
    Bit chaotic getting disabled onto coach at start but excellent after that. Only 45 min journey, tour takes approx 1 - 1 1/2 hours, very interesting and amazing artwork survived the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Our Tour guide Max was very informative, also so had staff to keep group together although did lose them at one point but soon caught up! Didn't get to see the whole tour but Square was spectacular. Well worth the trek.
