Do not book your flights through Air to Seas! And be aware of false information!

After 2 years of researching and saving up I decided on Harmony of the Seas. It had so many different options to satisfy my 9 year old daughter to my 35 year old fiance who is a big kid at heart. When I booked ...

Your initial package only covers Maid lemonade and water.

Embarkation and disembarkation was very fast and smoothly. I got a Cabin with balcony,..although tight, it was enough for a family (2 adults / 2 kids). The initial shock was that the initial package only covers ...

Food was disappoining and uninspired as was the entertainment.

I chose this cruise for the value. Royal Caribbean as a good reputation, but maybe just because all the others are just not as bad. When we cruised Disney they had food purchase in advance suitable to our diets. ...
