Harmony of the Seas Cruise Review by sworn to fun

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2016
  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

We choose this cruise for the ports and the ship. This ship was built in France and it was the only year the ship would sail in the Mediterranean Sea before re-positioning to Florida. The ship was awesome, the crew was awesome and our cabin with a balcony was the nicest cabin we have ever had. The shows were great as always and the activities kept us busy when we were not on shore.

But the highlights of the cruise was the ports and the Shore Excursions were the best we have ever been on. We highly recommend that in Italy to do the long excursions in Rome and in Florence / Pisa. Both excursions were 11 hour days and worth every penny. We were with other cruisers that have been on 30 plus cruises and they agreed it was the best excursions that they have ever been on. You won't be able to take this ship in the Mediterranean, but they have other ships sailing the area and we highly recommend to take the RC excursions. The larger ships can't get into as many ports but the entertainment on these ships are second to none. The only thing we didn't get used to was the dynamic dinning, on our next cruise were going to go back to classic

Cabin Review

Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony
Cabin D6 9294

This is the best balcony cabin we have ever had. We noticed that the bathrooms were a little larger and she shower had more room in it. We're small so it was never a problem for us but it is a little larger. Also the TV's are built into the wall giving more room to walk around the bed. The living room area with the couch was also more roomier. We don't spend alot of time in our cabin since there is so much to do on the ship, but when we come back it is nice to relax and watch the ocean go by.

Florence & Pisa Tour

11 hour tour -- one of the best if not best tours ever. Tower of Pisa and then all the statues and old building in Florence breath taking.

City Tour

Another 11 hour tour. Colosseum, Trevi Fountain , St Peter's Basilica , Sistine Chapel, St Peters Square on and on and on. It was unbelievable worth every penny.

Mt. Vesuvius

We would have given this an excellent if we had got to the top but it was pouring rain and fog and we in all fairness give them an average for just getting the bus to the trail head only to have to turn around and bring us back down the mountain. They did however give us a tour of Naples to fill in the rest of the day which was the best they could have done given the poor weather
