Anniversary Cruise

Review for Harmony of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

2-5 Cruises

My husband and I booked this cruise for our anniversary. We wanted to try one of the mega ships and we are glad we chose Harmony of the Seas. There was so much to do and see on Harmony. This cruise was the last cruise before the Covid shut down so we got very lucky. Due to weather our cruise was moved from an Eastern Caribbean Cruise to a Western Caribbean Cruise. Our hope was to visit new ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 40s

Our friends recommended HOS. We had an amazing time with our two teen daughters and group of friends which consisted of 4 other families. The weather/wind is beyond the control of the captain. We didn’t get to port at Costa Maya because of the high winds that day and there were a few times of rough seas. Will never do a sailing for Roatan again. That port was over crowded and not ...

This was our first big ship. Loved it. We had the key program which was our only disappointment. We got the run around from crew when we asked where key disembark breakfast and gangway was. Communication to key guests is sadly lacking. Its a shame as the program could be great. Coastal kitchen food and service was excellent. As junior suite guests we were allowed to have dinner there but our ...

Windy cruising on the Harmony

We chose this cruise as we wanted to try a more recently built ship. The overall cruise was good. No real show stoppers, but there was some concerns. Embarkation was absolutely perfect. We never stopped moving from our shuttle to inside the ship. While on the subject, the disembarkation was the fastest ever. This new facial recognition for those with passports was so fast I was concerned it ...

We chose this cruise to experience sailing on an Oasis class ship and to compare Royal Caribbean to other cruise lines we have sailed. This ship and crew far exceeded our expectations and provided us with a wonderful cruise. We found the ships crew from the captain on down were all professional and genuinely happy to be on board, something we haven’t always found. The entertainment was ...

My sister turned 40 and I surprised her with a cruise. She had always wanted to sail on one of the biggest ships. The ship was absolutely beautiful, modern and clean. Our room Steward and dining room Waiter and his Assistant were fabulous. Embarkation/disembarkation was extremely quick and very smooth. On the downside, the food was edible with the exception of my raw hamburger. I can honestly say ...

Ship: the ship is perfect we love this class with all its nooks and crannies to explore. The only ...

Don't Miss Wonderland or Jamie's!

We are foodies and really enjoyed Wonderland (both the service and the food were outstanding) and Jamie's (we're now addicted to the Taglietelle Bolognese)! Overall it was a good cruise. The ship was very clean and had a variety of activities on sea days to keep us busy. The port presentations, though, were geared towards shopping; no other activities available in port were mentioned. I'd like ...

We arrived to the Cocoa Beach area the day before embarkation. It was a nice, sunny day, with temperatures in in the low 70's so we decided to spend the afternoon at Jetty Park. It costs $15 per car for the entire day. They have restaurants there to grab a bite to eat, or you can pack a lunch and picnic. After a relaxing day at the beach, we went to Fishlips to have dinner and watch the cruise ...

We chose this cruise (1) to move us up to D+ before our Dec cruise, and (2) proximity of our home to Port Canaveral. We were in Grand Suite 10250. We left our house at 9:10am and were ON the ship by 10:30am. ARRIVAL - Dropped hubby off with luggage and went up to park. You have to pay on the way in as opposed to on way out at other locations. Walked right in and up to the ship. This place ...
