  3. Harmony of the Seas
We chose this cruise line for the high standard associated with Royal Caribbean and we chose the ship -Harmony- for the size and variety of the ship. It was the only ship that had an escape room and the PADI Scuba diving experience. Safe to say, we had no regrets for our choice. Embarkation was a bit strenuous (line after line), however one Gangway was broken which severely delayed our embarkation. The staff was able to find an efficient method of seating people in lines and getting us on the ship when it was our turn. Staff was absolutely incredible. Very efficient, always cleaning and tidying up. Ready to serve at any moment of the day. Activities were wide and varied. Entertainment was simply divine by a wide range of extremely talented artists and performers. My husband and I were surprisingly delighted by the dining options. There are a handful of restaurants that are not included in the price of the cruise, but we never felt the need to try them out as the included dining exceeded all our expectations. The main dining hall is more of a sit down dining experience, and when you feel the desire to be waited on and have a delectable full meal. The Windjammer marketplace has an INCREDIBLE variety and multitude of food. It is absolutely impossible to TRY all the food, as there is a magnitude of food options from all over the world. The dining staff is constantly on the lookout to anticipate and take care of all your needs. I would recommend doing an excursion at every port of call, as it is unlikely that you will get to see much of the country when you embark at a port. The ports are a mini city on their own and are not really linked to the "real country", so you aren't really experiencing the culture much. All in all, a very thrilling and satisfying experience. Would highly recommend to everyone!!

Phenomenal experience on Harmony of the Seas!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Mayan Ruins
    Interesting experience. Extremely hot and difficult to enjoy at times but learned a lot about an ancient interesting culture.

  • Snorkeling
    Great people. I had a little panic attack with the snorkel (not the best swimmer) and the tour guide was very helpful and understanding.
