Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2019
  • Destination: the Eastern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Interior

This was our second time on RCL and it was nice! We usually cruise with Carnival, however our family member was to be married on this cruise. So we boarded the largest ship we had ever cruised. The Harmony is a huge ship. The ship is decorated with modern art. The main floor has the HEAD! This art piece is a large head that turn in various directions. (see pictures) It was awesome.

Embarkation

Getting aboard the ship was a breeze. Before even getting on board the selling begins. There is a small shop right before passenger’s board. You can make t-shirt, jackets, card holders among other small items purchases. There’s is a18% gratuity on everything even the popcorn. Get ready this ship is the queen of selling!

Cabins

Our cabin was an inside cabin, the cabin was on the inside corner. Our cabin steward was Edward and he was awesome! Since G-Son had trouble getting up every morning, he made our room the last on in this morning rounds. The cabin was comfortable. The restroom had a night light, so it was easy to reach the front door and the restroom. If our neighbor left their room, you could hear the door open and close, loudly. We felt the cabin was smaller than the cabin on Carnival. Our room steward decorated the room for my birthday, July 4. That was a pleasant surprise

Shows

You must make reservations for the shows. Make sure you do that before you board. You will be allowed to enter the show first. The problem is you have to arrive an hour before the show and sit until the show begins. If you don’t reserve the show you have to wait until 15 minutes before the show to enter. If you don’t come at least 30 minutes before the show you lose your reservation.

The shows are pretty good! The ice show was a little difficult to understand, but it was beautiful. The Aqua shows were amazing. The performers made the show very interesting. You must see these shows. The Show band Temperature was awesome. We went to each and every one of their performances. They had a Motown night, OMG! It was so much fun. We knew all the songs and the band was live! On Michael Jackson night, there was a guest that danced all the songs just like Michael. Each show the band played was awesome.

Food

The food was very good. We ate in the dining room every evening. The dining room was beautiful. There wasn’t as many choices that we liked, so we ate the same thing most of the evenings. Our waiter was Alvin and he and his crew was just awesome. He had my fruit plate waiting for me every evening. We did eat too early in the evening. Johnny Rockets was a charge. We enjoyed the various breakfast places other than the buffet, which was crowded all the time. I did like the hand washing stations before you entered the Wind Jammer buffet.

Overall

The ship is huge! The lobby is way too small for the number of passengers. The Atrium was just too small and not very enjoyable for events. The Fourth of July parade was so tight it wasn’t as much fun as it could have been. Would we go on the Harmony again? Maybe!

Perfect Day at CocoCay

As a teacher, I was able to bring the best shells back for my students. I just have to dig in the sand and up came the most solid perfect shell shapes.

I wish I could remember the tour guide. They were wonderful. He kayaked then went snorkeling, The water was so clear and warm..
