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.

Not our favorite cruise

Cabin Review

Cabin 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.
