  3. Harmony of the Seas
I believe RCCL has finally made a ship that is too big to provide its usual high level of service. The staff does not seem to be trained up to the usual RCCL standards. Harmony is not an Oasis class ship. Its many high-tech additions added nothing to my experience. Activities on board leave much to be desired after knowing what to expect since we've cruised on both on Oasis and Allure. The activities director-Katy-was 15 minutes late to teach Zumba. She gave no reason. Not enough opportunities for Trivia! Harmony offers many health related talks but most require you to buy their Elemis products to achieve the desired results. The thermal suite was great. There are many lounges in the Solarium, but there is NO pool! Big mistake RCCL! How are you supposed to cool off...in the 100° whirlpool? The water slides are not open regularly, so it’s hit or miss when you want to go on. The Windjammer food selections are limited, many items have no taste at all. The staff berates you into washing your hands before entering, while other times you can just walk in. The singing in Grease was just above High School level. The comedy show was hysterical. The time limited "free for all" shopping was scary to behold. Grown women throwing elbows to get a $10 watch and bracelet set. Needless to say Harmony we won't be back. Oasis and Allure for us from now on.

Cabin Review

Cabin
The room layout is great, but the décor is dark. The shower was more spacious then on other Oasis class ships.The sink, if you can call it that, was too small. You had to stand sideways to wash your face!
