Traveled with children

First time cruise for a family of four with teenage children to celebrate a landmark birthday and decided to go for the biggest and the best !? Having spent four fantastic days pre cruise in Barcelona we had high hopes for Harmony of the Seas but the experience was mixed.

The Ship

There is no doubt this ship is an amazing feat of engineering bordering on the absurd in terms of scale. Getting on and off was remarkably easy and quick if you check in on line. As expected everything about the ship is new and spotless. We had upgraded cabins with ocean balcony which were pleasantly larger than expected with a comfortable bed although still smaller than the average Premier Inn room (this is a ship after all). The ship is busy at peak times especially the last day at sea and the design means you spend a lot of time in one of the 24 lifts on board which always seemed to be busy. The pools are noisy with kids but the Solarium is a pleasant alternative quiet with plenty of sun loungers and hot tubs (not sure why they are so hot when the air tempreature is in the 30s)
