Harmony of the Seas Cruise Review by pleasantlake
- Sail Date: July 2018
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Boardwalk View Balcony
We have cruised many times - Harmony is one of our favorite ships - the staterooms are a bit larger, the ship is immaculate, shows are great (especially the High Wire!) and staff is super friendly. Jeffrey, our cabin steward, was the best we have ever had. Although we didn't love the food at Wonderland, the experience was different and phenomenal. We did feel, however, that we were "nickled and dimed" for absolutely everything aboard - when we sail NCL, for example, the drink package is included, as are typically 3 or 4 specialty dining nights. Places like Johnny Rockets and Sabor should be included. RCCL Harmony's drink package is ridiculously expensive, as are the excursion packages. Bingo is too much $. We were traveling with two 17yr olds. There were not many events designed for that age - they all seemed to be geared toward the 12-15yr olds. Also, I feel that more coverage should be given to the Solarium. It's a beautiful, quiet area. Although signs said the areas were for 16 and up, there were many, many kids younger than that in that area, and in the hot tubs there as well. We love RCCL, but wish that they were a bit more competitive with pricing. All in all, a great trip!

Our cabin was great! Cabins are a bit wider than most from other ships we have been on. It definitely has a roomier feel. Jeffrey, our steward, was phenomenal. We were concerned about how noisy the room would be, as our balcony overlooked the boardwalk. If you are someone that goes to sleep before 10, there might be show nights that you will find the room to be a bit noisier. We found no issue at all with noise. And it was fun to people watch on our balcony!

I would highly recommend this tour if you are looking to hang out on a tiny island and just relax or swim. The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is that there just wasn't enough time once we got to the island. If they could extend the tour another hour, it would be perfect.

Beautiful place! The dock is very central to so many shops, local artisan booths, and the fort.

We love St Maarten, but it is still so devestated from the 2016 hurricane. Most of the shops, buildings, and cafes along the beach strip are gone or boarded up. Lots of locals that pepper the tourists for $... it's a beautiful spot, but has a long way to go.
