Have been on many RCI cruises and on Oasis and Allure. So we were excited for Harmony. Its been 2 years since being on RCI and things have changed for the worst. The crowds and lines on Harmony were everywhere. The other mega ships after the muster drill people disperse and don't have big issues with lines. The staff is great and very helpful. Embarkation and disembarkation were very good, no issues with crowds at all. It was on the ship that crowds were an issue, dining room for lunch and breakfast had lines out to elevators every morning. Finding chairs around pools were impossible. The solarium is so hot and needs a pool badly. The entertainment is top notch, Grease, Fine line, and Columbus were all excellent. Food quality has gone down significantly was told by waitstaff that a lot of food is not made on board, most desserts and crab cakes are purchased pre-made. They try and pass off Tilapia fish for sole. The diamond lounge is now on deck 4 with no windows and is very small. There were only a few diamond members on cruise so the lounge was not crowed. Gym is on Deck 6 and has porthole windows but is very hot, AC is not adequate for the space. I would not recommend Harmony of the Seas and would think twice about RCI. I enjoy Celebrity and Princess much better. The cruise cost is almost double that of Celebrity Equinox out of Miami and is far inferior in quality of food, and ship board space. We were on Equinox in June and had a much better experence
