Maiden Voyage with Bad Output

First, the class of Ships we were not unknown, but there is much to discover new. Everyone who said that I already know, better was taught. Here the Oasis-class was Advanced models, I would describe it as ...

Trying out Harmony, the largest liner.

We chose this 'taster' three day cruise to see what the new Harmony of the Seas was like. It was advertised as the largest cruise liner. We had been on Oasis of the Seas and did not expect there would be many ...

Still under construction, but nowhere near ready for paying guests.

So we stayed on from the 1st cruise and still it's not the proper 'maiden' voyage. Just under 300 people stayed on and we queued to swap Seapass cards over. We keep our Seapass cards as souvenirs but they never ...

You would not want to experience a cruise as bad as this one.

This was the first sailing of Harmony carrying fare paying passengers. The ship was like a building site and no regard was paid to passenger safety. I saw a missing glass panel missing from deck 16. Yes the panel ...

We were sold this as an inaugural cruise, it was not, in fact even the cruise director alluded to it as a test voyage or words to that effect, And it certainly was testing! areas closed down, not enough seating, at ...
