Sail Date: Apr 2019
Cabin: Ocean View Balcony
Traveled with children

We were traveling with our two daughters, sons in law, and 4 grandkids ages 6 to 10. We last cruised together two years ago on the Allure and wanted another newer Oasis class ship. We had an ocean view balcony and the other two families were across the hall in boardwalk balconies. They liked the layout on the Harmony cabins much better, particularly the two separate closets and the trundle bed as opposed to bunks. Edwin our cabin steward was great, best we have had.

We ate breakfast in deck three American icon restaurant. We enjoy the option of either ordering off the menu, using the buffet or both. We found the breakfast buffet far superior to our last few cruises with NCL, MSC and Princess. Quality was much better as well as selection. Service was outstanding!

For lunch we did either Windjammer or when open American icon. Again Windjammer was far better for lunch and dinner than the previously mentioned lines. Had trouble initially getting grilled cheese sandwiches for the grandkids, but we spoke to manager and we were able to get the sandwiches.

Cabin Review

Ocean View Balcony

Cabin 4D

Cabins as stated were great. Well designed...functional. Balcony a pleasant surprise with ample space, comfortable chairs with footrests.

Port Reviews

St. Maarten

Took water taxi to Great Bay beach....great day....great food at burger mania?...and we normally do not eat on shore

San Juan

Walked to old San Juan and forts, enjoyed day and shopping, but were not in port long enough to do much else

Labadee

Great weather, great day....got to Columbus Cove early and got our loungers and settled in for a long day of swimming.....buffet is what it it, hard to do more....local merchants are very aggressive. We always buy something, but can’t please everyone.
