Sail Date: Jan 2020
Cabin: Ocean View Balcony

We booked Harmony two years ago because of the hype. Overall, our trip was ok. The ship is too big and spread out. We missed having every amenity conveniently located throughout, we enjoyed Brilliance so much more. (It took me 5 days to find the froyo on Harmony!) The crowds were a bit much, especially on formal nights. Our balcony stateroom on 10 was nice, but opening the door at all screwed up the A/C and we woke hot every single night. Mid ship was perfect for the crazy amount of waves (all the crew said they hadn’t seen anything like it in years) we had. The wait staff was phenomenal, especially with my need for gluten-free food. Loved that the casino had smoking and non-smoking! But at the slots we were never asked if we needed a drink, only at tables. Overall, Harmony was a fun one-time experience. But it’ll be smaller ships for us from now on.

Side note: Do not book for CocoCay. Everything on island was much too expensive, the food selection where we were was crap (and we didn’t know until after that we had to search for more choices), and it was SO windy and cool. Not enjoyable at all in winter. RC shouldn’t send anyone there.

Cabin Review

Ocean View Balcony

Cabin was lovely, plenty of storage, but we normally sleep with our A/C at 68-69, and at the coldest, I think our cabin only got down to 71. We were hot every single night. And opening the balcony door made it worse.

Port Reviews

Perfect Day at CocoCay

Too cold, too windy, too expensive. RC shouldn’t send any ships here in the winter.
