Harmony of the Seas Cruise Review by Geemaof3

  • Destination: the Eastern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

We were a little disappointed in this cruise. We have been on 5 other RCI cruises that we loved. We feel that some of the quality that RC is known for was given up for quantity. The food in MDR and Windjammer was not up to their usual standards. This ship seems to be geared toward young families and 21-24 year olds that seem to think that they can only have a good time if they are drunk. I went down to have a cigarette around 4am and there was a group of about 20 of them that were blocking the entrance to the deck. They had confiscated a handicapped scooter from somewhere and were racing it up and down the pool deck banging into the chairs and tables, blaring music, girls were dancing on the pool railings...just totally out of control. There were about 6 of us down there and we were all very upset. This happened 2 mornings in a row. Of course, no security around. On the bright side, our room steward was excellent, we enjoyed Columbus and thought that Labadee was beautiful...a very pleasant surprise. It is now our favorite port. I am glad we tried Harmony but would not go on it again. I just hope that people who were doing their first cruise on it do not judge RC by this ship. We will stick to Freedom size ships from now on.

Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony
Cabin D6 14-618

Cabin was nice...usual RC. Our room steward was excellent. She was always friendly, asked how we were and how our day was going and room was always clean.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

We were very pleasantly surprised. Labadee is beautiful! It was about 90 minutes long and we learned so much. They are very proud people. Our tour guide was excellent.

Island Tour

Our tour guide took us to the highest point on the island. Views were gorgeous even on a cloudy day. We stopped at certain points for picture taking opportunities. Guide was very informative yet had a good sense of humor. Would recommend.
