We recently cruised on Royal Caribbean's Harmony of the Seas and had a blast! This ship is gorgeous, and is very well kept. The ships layout is almost identical to the Allure and the Oasis, but with some extras that make this ship even better. There is a ton of activities for the whole family on this ship. My kids, 11 and 9, enjoyed the additions of the waterslides and the Ultimate Abyss dry slide. They both were fun things to do. The Flow Rider and Zip Line were both great adrenaline- pumping attractions, while the mini golf was the best on any cruise ship. The sports court was great, but always busy. When we walked into the theater to see Grease and it was almost full, we knew it was good. And it didn't disappoint. It outshined the other theater show, Columbus. The ice skating show on this ship was fantastic and unique to this ship. Both aqua shows, The Fine Line and Hideaway Heist, were super cool with crazy acrobatic stunts and super high dives. The food was good on this ship, with the exception of the seafood. The dining room was very elegant and welcoming, but the experience wouldn't have been the same with out our wonderful server, Jorge and Bogdan. It wasn't the best food ever, but it was good for a cruise ship. My main problem with this ship is that there is people everywhere. When you are with 6,421 other people, there will be long lines so be prepared. We had some fun days in port. In Nassau, which isn't anything special, we stayed on the ship for the day. When we arrived in St. Thomas, we went zip lining to see some breathtaking views of the islands around us. In St. Maarten, we bought a day room at the Westin and went there for a fantastic day in the pool and at the beach. Overall, we had a great cruise and would recommend this ship in a heartbeat!

A Great Time on the Largest Cruise Ship in the World!

Love the new layout with the closets. Makes the balcony cabin seem much more spacious.
