  3. Harmony of the Seas
We are experienced cruisers and have previously sailed on Oasis of the Seas, so we were eager to try Harmony. It was very similar to Oasis but several years newer. The promenade on deck 5 was the site of a large parade as well as dance parties, in addition to the shopping, food locations and bars. The Boardwalk had a Starbucks where Oasis had an ice cream parlor and I thought the ice cream parlor was preferable. The other Boardwalk restaurants included Johnny Rockets, Sabor and a hot dog stand. Central Park was also similar to Oasis and the Park Cafe was a nice place to have lunch. There was a daily planner which listed many activities. We enjoyed the trivia in the Schooner Bar, the dance parties and the many shows. The Fine Line show at the Aqua Theater is not to be missed. We saw it twice: once with a reservation and later in the week as standby. The theater was also used for an amusing men's belly flop contest and an event for repeat cruisers which was a morning version of the Captain's cocktail party. There were two ice shows and a full production of Grease as well as a musical titled Columbus. The only one we didn't like was Columbus, really corny jokes. We found the dining room food and service to be excellent so we did not have dinner at any of the specialty restaurants. We only ate lunch at the Windjammer once and found it to be overcrowded and noisy, so on the other days we ate at some of the alternatives: Johnny Rockets, Park Cafe, the pizza place on Deck Five and the Promenade Cafe. For breakfast we ate in the main dining room. The passengers were a mix of ages and there were also guests from other countries

Large ship with plenty of activities

Cabin Review

Cabin 7292
The cabin was spacious with plenty of room to hang our clothes in two closets and ample drawer space. The bed was large. The bathroom seemed more spacious than prior RCCL ships I have experienced. The balcony had an unobstructed view and the cabin had a futon type couch. The two of us were quite comfortable.
