Although I had a previous experience on a cruise (I live in San Juan, Puerto Rico and have traveled in this way to the Dominican Republic), I had never done it in a class like the Harmony Of The Seas. Both the experience with the shipping company, Royal Caribbean, and the ship itself, was incredible. The perfect food in quality and quantity (too much !!). At all times, of all kinds. On time. Breakfast, huge in variety and quantity. What one imagines Lunch or simply eat at any time, too. Dinner in the main dining room: incredible in the variety and quality of the menu. The service of the staff. Wonderful. Passionate about giving you the best service. The activities on board. From swimming pools, slides, children's pools. The bars, restaurants ... The shows. Broadway level! the ice rink, the disco, the thematic bars. all perfect Excursions ... 100% recommended Read Less

We chose Harmony of the Seas because it was one of the biggest cruises in the world and we wanted to have the experience of traveling on it. The social areas of the ship are breath taking, suppose it was due to the amount of details in the decoration. Amazing generosity of food both in quality and amount, the variety of restaurants, the kindness of the waitresses, the quality of the shows was amazing and the amenities like the mini golf, the rides, the zip line the surf pool, absolutely fantastic, never thought of been in a cruise with all that. The space in the room was generous enough considering that we were on a cruise. All the family and specially my 6 and 10-year-old boys had so much fun that they say that this was an unforgettable experience, and I believe so. Didn’t like much the Labadie and Jamaica port, I wish there were some other places to visit. Also found the excursions a little bit pricy, but overall I highly recommend this cruise. Read Less

Short and sweet and good value for the money. My Aunt is a Dimond member with this Royal Caribbean. We loved the staff and how much they attended to our every need. What a cruise line to start out with. My husband and I enjoyed this. The next time I will go when its warmer the seas were rough but that is mother nature. Michelle is a excellent cruise director . We enjoyed the shows the food was even better getting on and off was easy and parking in Miami was close and very easy everyone was above and beyond. We were able to make payments on our package and it made things affordable I put 1000.00 on my account and left with 400.00 and shopped on the ship a lot so the bang for the buck was great. We will be a repeat customer as two younger guys we loved this cruise we shared with our mom and aunt. Read Less

My party occupied 4 cabins. 3/4 cabins had bathrooms overflowing and showers over flowing into our stateroom. The hallways smelled. We had to wait 45 minutes to have our water line fixed and this was right before formal dinner. The water was completely shut off in our room while we were stuck on board because we missed Cococay due to weather. There was a HUGE lack of communication (no one reported our water line breaking to the Superiors) and there was no flexibility in trying to "right" this problem. They offered me $60 towards my next cruise. Worst time I've ever had with RC. Stateroom attendant was AMAZING. Dining service was GREAT. activities were okay. Thankful i had a party of 8 to hang with and enjoy company... If our friends werent there it would have been a very boring and rocky cruise. Drinks were on point, music was great, loved seeing the captain out and about.. These parts were great! Read Less

We chose this cruise because the dates worked for us. We drove from Clearwater to out of Port Canaveral on January 5, 2018. First stop was Nassau which was high pressure sales from the locals. We walked to the Queen's Staircase which was interesting. The town is really run down. The second day was supposed to be Coco Cay but the winds were too much for the tenders so we had to stay on the ship all day. The pool is not heated and it was too cold even for the kids. They tried to have fun in the kid area but that was also too cold. There is no large slide or activities for the older kids or adults. There were two soft serve ice cream machines by the pool but that couldn't keep up with the high demand. The buffets and dinner in the dining room were just average. There were up-charge options for those wanting to spend more money. The shows were ok and there were plenty of activities to choose from but nothing that had a 'wow' factor. The ship will be going into dry dock the end of January 2018 and it's definitely ready - dated, rusty and dreary. We will do a cruise again but will chose a better destination and a newer ship with better entertainment and more activities. Since this was the first cruise for the kids - they had nothing to compare to and they had a good time. I got a decent deal and went in with average expectations so it was all good. Read Less

Love Royal Caribbean and will always choose RC for all my cruises. The wait staff was fantastic. Our head waiter was already aware of my grandsons tree nut allergy and made sure he didn't get anything with nuts in it. He caught it when we were discussing his dinner choice and one of the possibilities had nuts in it he jumped right in to nix that choice. Impressed me to no end. He was very attentive and his backup staff was very good as well. The entertainment was awesome. The comedienne was hilarious and so was the juggling act. Our cabin was clean and attended to. The staff was very friendly and were very accommodating to requests and information. The ship was always clean and they were picking empty cups and plates, glasses etc. on a constant basis. The food at theWindjammer buffet was always fresh and there were lots of choices. If you were hungry it was YOUR OWN FAULT. I will cruise with Royal Caribbean again and again. All in all it was a very positive experience. Read Less

This is only our second cruise and have been hesitant to take it on Navigator due to lukewarm reviews here and being an older, smaller ship in the Royal Caribbean fleet. I guess lowering our expectations may have helped, because we had one of the best vacations on board of the Navigator and on the shore. The highlight for us it has been the quality of the food and the service in the main (Sapphire) dining room at dinner time and the quality of the food in the Windjammer. I know, some people may call us crazy for praising the Windjammer food. Of course, we all have different standards, however I know that our family of 5 plus live-in nanny spends $2,400+ per month in food at home and we rarely if ever get such quality food as we did at the complimentary restaurants on the navigator. It is true though, we are not big on steaks, we have tried some, however we focused a lot on fish, sea food, veggies and fruits when available. The ship overall looks surprisingly good despite its age. The cabin also had a very practical layout and it was roomy. Some little things may have needed a repair and the age of the ship was more obvious in some details in the cabin (such as rust around the bed frame for instance). The entertainment options have been plentiful too. While we travelled with kids and could not enjoy a lot of the shows, there were always few shows or live performances to watch. They may not have been top productions but they were entertaining nonetheless. We skipped Labadee due to inclement weather and it turned out to be a good call as then we heard of an earthquake and a tsunami from worried relatives. Of course, the captain could not have known about the upcoming earthquake, it just turned out to be a good call, especially as we were sailing South, to warmer weather. The ABC islands were very nice, our favorite has been Curaçao for being more laid back, not so aggressively touristic as Aruba and for having nice sandy beaches with calm waters for kids and yet with some basic snorkeling opportunities, again for our first time learning kids. We would definitely go again! Read Less

Family needed a short cruise due to school and work vacations. It was cold most of the time, especially in Key West on Wednesday. So, lots of time was spent on ship. Room size was great but little signs everywhere showed the age of the ship. Food was adequate except for scrambled eggs. They were downright awful. I ask the chef in windjammer to make scramble eggs for me. They were worse than the watery scrambled eggs in the buffet. I can absolutely guarantee that company executives have never eaten this food. If they did, these eggs would be gone in ten seconds. There is great food in restaurants where you have to pay. I had an excellent steak and the service was excellentl. Room service was good also but was longer than the 45 minutes suggested. The overall conclusion was that the cruise was only adequate. It’s clear that senior executives at corporate offices are not paying attention to details. Read Less

We booked this cruise based on the islands of the Southern Caribbean, and also the time of year was important for our schedule. Two of the five islands (St. Thomas, St. Martin, Martinique, St. Croix, and St. Kitts ) we never visited before, so it was very exciting to explore new islands. We had our three year old son with us, so that made it a little difficult to have many options as far as shore excursions go, but we still found something at every island and we all enjoyed our selves. Our favorite excusrsion was in Martinique, the Biological Zoo visit and old Disterry Rum tour. Our son enjoyed going to AquaNauts in Adventure Ocean on deck 12 for play time. On some days, they did family events and that was really enjoyable. For adult time, we took advantage of the Tropic Theater for onboard entertainment. Our most favorite show was ABBA (presented by Abracadebra band). Read Less

We just returned from 5 fun filled days on Vision of the Seas! RCI has never disappointed us, and this time was no exception. The ship was clean and well maintained. Everything worked and looked great! That said, there is no getting around the fact that Vision is one of the oldest and smallest ships in the fleet. There are many features the boat doesn't have, but we focused on what it does offer. Being smaller, getting on and off the ship and getting around was a snap. The crew was by far the most enthusiastic we've ever experienced. The Captain even sang with the band in the Centrum! The whole senior staff participated in a pool volleyball tournament and the on board activities never stopped. The ship is very unusual in that the buffet is on the front of the ship. Most ships have it in the back along with the main dining room. This allows the crew to use a single kitchen with a single elevator to service both venues. The Vision's arrangement was probably hard on the crew, but the buffet area was beautiful and much more interesting! My only real disappointment was the areal shows in the Centrum. I had read how good they were, but we didn't have any of them on this sailing. Read Less
