Amazing ship, plenty for all age groups. Our group consisted of ages 12-50yrs One in the a party was a first time cruiser and worried about whether he would enjoy the cruise experience - needless to say he did ! We did 2 back to back weeks. The entertainment was superb, our particular favourite being The Fine Line aqua show - the talent of the performers was outstanding, in sometimes tricky conditions. Staff are chirpy and cleanliness is second to none. We never had to wait for any length of time to be served at any bar. Food is outstanding. Main Dining (silk) room waiters and in the Windjammer are superb. Our cabin steward quietly and discreetly went about his daily chores. We looked forward to the daily updates from the bridge by Captain Johnny. The stops at Labadee made for a great chill out day at the beach. And this is where my only complaint would come in. A beech staff member did not seem to employ the same ethics that RCI staff on ship employ. We were happily sorting out our lounger, when a staff member insisted he did it, then stood staring at me waiting to be paid. He gave a disgruntled moan when he received $1USD (clearly he felt the 60 seconds he insisted on doing was worth more!). I watched him do the same with other families. I will add he was the only one displaying this behaviour, I watched plenty of others happily helping and then moving to the next family. We did RCI organsied exursions and they were all amzing in terms of quality offerred with value for money. For the age range in our group this ship was perfect, and despite being fully booked, it never felt crowded anywhere, loungers were alwyas available, and seats usually available at shows if guests had not reserved any. We haf some issues with commincation from the bookings/admin office, with vital documetnaiotn whcih ahd not been sent to our travel agent - the guest services staff on board tirelessly worked to resolvethis if us. all round GREAT STAFF, GREAT SERVICE and A GREAT TIME was enjoyed. Disembarkation is slow once off ship, and something needs to be done in regards to the customs process, only 2 desks open, !

Superb Christmas on Harmony of the Seas

One in the a party was a first time cruiser and worried about whether he would enjoy the cruise experience - needless to say he did !

We did 2 back to back weeks.

The entertainment was superb, our particular favourite being The Fine Line aqua show - the talent of the performers was outstanding, in sometimes tricky conditions.

Staff are chirpy and cleanliness is second to none.

We never had to wait for any length of time to be served at any bar.

Food is outstanding.

Main Dining (silk) room waiters and in the Windjammer are superb.

Our cabin steward quietly and discreetly went about his daily chores.

We looked forward to the daily updates from the bridge by Captain Johnny.

Cabin Review

Central Park View Balcony
Cabin 1J 7184
Good size, good view, no "motion in the ocean" felt (to quote the Captain).
plenty of storage for 2 x adults. would have felt more squashed if sharing with 2 x chidlren though.
Deck 14 Inside Cabins, Balcony Cabins, Suite Cabins
